Time to get filthy

Recommended Posts

Who gives a rats if we get one-week suspensions this week? We're going to lose next week anyway.

I want Mitch Robinson knocked out.

I want blood.

I want Lynden Dunn to snipe for the fun of it.

I want Bull to run over a few Carlton players a la Savage, Shaw.

I want Carlton's sub activated by the end of the first quarter.

Nice VENT, now go and have a soothing Hot Chocolate....Leave the Team Tactics to Mr Viney this week.

He has just put his balls on the line....

A Jack Trengove special on Robinson would go down just fine. Sling away!

Bad thread and dumb thought.

Stupid actions on the ground dont make up for some dumber actions off the ground.

He obviously felt emasculated after the Geelong game, and if the above happens vicariously he may recover half a one..

a 7 goal first Quarter would be a better start.

The MFC is a Football Club not a boxing academy run by Johnny Lewis.

Or we could put that effort into our football performance perhaps? I agree somewhat in that we shoulsd throw everything at Carlton this week after last week.

forgive me for them wanting to show something after last week and Carlton labelling us bruise-free earlier this year?

Point taken, but i would prefer to see scoreboard pressure....a win keeps us in the hunt for September.

I'm with the intent of your OP striker, however I'd prefer we don't lose players, but to see the boys playing with real [censored] would make me smile. We know Bull can run blokes down, we know Dunn can be a right pain in the arse, and we know Trenners and Jordie can drive a bloke into the earth with a great tackle. I'll accept all of that, but there's no reason for us to be scumbags like the mob we're about to play.

What would hurt Carlton the most is being crushed by a passionate and hard team that are willing to give anything for the red and blue. And as supporters we should except nothing less.

Correct. The Jumper that Chris Judd should have chosen, but didn't.

I also like the intent of the OP. I agree with what everyone else has said too. BUT remember Hawthorn's "unsociable football" - it just might take a couple to cross the line once or twice in order that the whole team spends most of the game just 'this' side of the line. When an opposition player lines up against Brown, Robinson, Hodge etc... and they have to wait under a high ball, there is something inside their head saying, "I might get cleaned up here. I've seen him do it before..." and there's a chance they don't go as hard. Look at half of our team as an example of this effect!

"Time to get filthy" needs to mean, win contested ball and win tackle count. These are only stats but they are usually definitive. Be a good start, anyway.

Totally agree that we will see some good contested footy.

It will be very interesting to see the changes to the team. Im tipping the dees for a win and keeping our final hopes alive,

I really wouldn't think thuggish tactics or the reading of the riot act are necessary in these circumstances. The way that events unfolded in the past week should be enough if they have pride in themselves. However, with a tough no nonsense bloke like Todd Viney at the helm I doubt we're going to see players shirking issues if they want to be in the side the following week.

I will be more interested in how the team is set up. I expect it will be a lot different to the past and further, that the uncertainty on this will cause some issues at Carlton.

While I agree with Rhino's point that this is a pretty dumb thread and that mindless violence is not the answer, secretly I hope points 1, 2 and 3 all come together in the one act. Losing Lynden Dunn for the rest of the season through suspension for knocking out Mitch Robinson would put me in a happy place.

I don't necessarily want blood. But I get what your saying Striker. When a club comes out and calls says you play bruise free football it's embarrassing. Time for some of the playing group to step up and play some hard football. Just do it legally.

He has done nothing of the sort. He doesn't want to coach full time. He's helping out.

You are wrong.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
