Gaz just reporting on Triple M that Jack already put one player out of the game, but then got hit by Wojinski and was down for a minute, which was, as Gaz said, probably the longest he has ever been down his life. toughest young player he's ever seen

Was the other guy stretchered off?

No - David Wojcinski landed the bump. Jack was down on the floor for about a minute and then walked off the ground. Then walked around the boundary line to the rooms.

Scorpions by 53 points - 25 min mark last quarter.

Of course it's perfectly acceptable. Who could be critical of supporters barracking for them or considering them "ours" ?

Although I don't and they're not Melbourne's team. They're just irrefutable facts.

What a load of rubbish. Get your facts straight.

If Casey is not Melbourne's team in the VFL who is? Is it still Sandringham? No they are St.Kilda's team. Is it Frankston? No they are a stand alone team.

Gee 'Ben-Hur' you have got me stumped. It appears that if Casey is not 'OUR SIDE' then we do not have one in the VFL.

I think I know the problen Ben-Hur you do not have a Melbournefc membership so therefore your do not have a membership of the Casey Scorpions.

It's called an affiliation. We are not the Casey Scorpions Football Club.

I've been a member since 1996. I was at Dallas Brooks Hall that year too as part of the Demon Alternative group.

I said "let's not derail" and I won't respond to you further.

K rock's like listening to a SA station - some chook just stated that Watts hasn't done much.

Give us a break. Apart from his four goals at this late stage of the game Watts would be close on 20 touches.

Viney is now off the ground after that collision.

And the siren sounds. It's all over with Casey Scorps 22.8.140 to Geelong Cats 14.10.94.

Cold here and nothing to do for an hour but walk smugly among the Cats fans.

Best for Casey were Watts, Bennell and Fitzpatrick.

If true and I guess it is, absolutely shattering news about Gysberts broken jaw. Melbourne continues to struggle to keep its young players with potential on the park.

Why are you implying that there is something Melbourne could have done to prevent a collision injury like a broken jaw.

Broken jaw is 6 weeks out. Gysberts horrible start to 2012 continues.

I know I feel obliged to follow Casey (just as I was to Sandy once upon a time). I take a keen interest in the Dees' VFL affiliate Casey because that's where our boys play!

Yes, completely understandable. Who has suggested otherwise ? Why do you think I'm reading the thread ?

Any news on the Gysberts injury?

Yet another first round pick with heaps of talent missing games. We must be the unluckiest club going around. Watts, Gysberts, Jurrah, Blease, Petterd, all playing at a lower level, yet have more talent than nearly all their counterparts playing for Melbourne this week. It's a sad state of affairs at the moment.

Well done to Casey today. Sounds like a very solid win!

The MFC can hardly be blamed for this turn of events.

twitter on the MFC website said that Viney also suspected broken jaw as well. 2 in the one game ain't great, but you imagine it's cos the boys have their heads over the ball, so its an unlucky injury for sure.

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
