“They are deplorable. I feel sorry for the supporters because they are a meaningless team at the moment. “They are just deplorable. I thought last night was their test against somebody in the same neighbourhood as them on the ladder. “I thought last night was a launchpad for season 2020. They’ve got a few injuries, but by god, so do the Sydney Swans. Somebody who is on even par with them. “That was a meaningless performance and they have little to no identity as a football team. I cannot think less of them this morning after last night.” Brereton roasts "deplorable" Demons after Friday night howler “Though, 40 plus points is just not the difference between these teams. It’s embarrassing for Melbourne. "They've had one of the worst years you can imagine and that has just been rubber stamped again tonight." "Appalling" and "embarrassing" Demons beaten up by young Swans “We all saw it … Richmond have been the big one this year, when they’ve played with a real spirit as a group,” Riewoldt said on Fox Footy. “Melbourne have had issues this year with their system, they’ve had issues with their players being out of form — and that would speak to an issue with their spirit as well."

The Swans looked like scoring every single time they went forward, where players were often standing in acres of space. Melbourne’s third goal came at 20 minute mark first quarter. Their fourth didn’t come until six minutes into the last term. In that time Sydney kicked seven straight. The Demons kicked two goals after quarter-time. There was no anger, no fight and no will to change the course they were on. Most worryingly, there was an acceptance." Melbourne slumps to sixth straight loss after raising the white flag against Sydney "But the last question might override the rest. How much has 2019 hurt? From premiership fancies to the worst-performed side in the competition apart from Gold Coast, the Demons' drop is unfathomable. There will be no club more closely watched this off-season." The key questions facing Melbourne in the off-season But if you want an even more telling assessment, take a look at any of the MFC socials, unofficial pages/groups, here of course and anywhere supporters are free to comment; it really seems to have finally hit the fan. The most common theme I've noticed already from even the most rusted-on supporters is that they won't be renewing next year and have had their passion absolutely snuffed out by the season presented by this club.
