So bloody proud of the boys. Weekend can only get better if Colliwobbles appear again and they go out in straight sets! About to watch replay

Anyone considered a possible repeat of 64? Dees and pies? So proud of the boys last night. No voice left today.

In losing last night, Hawthorn becomes the first club in the current top-eight era to go out of the AFLFinals⁠ ⁠ in straight sets twice . They are now 0-4 in finals since the 2015 flag.

Did we get the rub of the green with the umpiring?

I thought it was pretty even.

Not even close. I thought we got the obvious ones where we were impeded, and didn't get the obvious throws and HTB. Lewis is generally pretty fiery but he went off his tree at Nicolls for that non-decision against Roughy

For the first time in 20 odd years, I might throw Murdoch a couple of bucks to get his paper...

I thought even too. Pretty bad lack of recognition on this board for a decent negating effort by the Hawks for a good amount of time and executed their skillful possession game well. Took away our strengths and had their chances to make it tight. We obviously are a class above in pressure and took our chances. But no, UmPiReS TrIed tO WiN tHe GaMe foR thE HaWkS

Yeah a member so that’s good news, telling my bride I am contemplating dropping over a grand on flights my not be though.

Tell her you’ll drive over to save $. Then after a suitable amount of time allegedly “doing some research” come back to her solemnly and declare that you have figured out it would be cheaper to fly and takes less time which gives you time to take her out to dinner and a movie and give her foot massage. Problem solved!!!

If anyone else has any problems they need solving I will be here all week 😂

Wet Toast will be a tough gig 

Darling and Kennedy will be playing this time

I think our defence has gone up a level on that round 22 match too. But yes a massive effort required and a little bit of luck our way and we can match it with them and win. I'm less impressed with their footy IQ than I am with hawthorns, so I don't think they can negate our game style and we'll have a bit of a high quality shootout again.

Kennedy looked pretty off the pace most of the game last week. Dont forget he was playing on a bloke who was coming in for his first game of the year in a miracle recovery. Frosty will be a much tougher opponent. 

Darling hardly set the world on fire last week and Collingwood have no key defenders.

Huge shoutout to our defence. Hawthorn were on top at times but we never coughed up a run of goals like we would have earlier in the year.

Hibberd is so important back there. Frost and OMac have grown. Jetta is a rock. And Lewis is playing his best footy he has played for us in the last 2 weeks.

Tommy Mac always been a good player, now elite. If Jetta was unlucky for AA so was this bloke.

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The
