GAME DAY, ROUND 3, 2015

Recommended Posts

Which Melbourne will turn up in Adelaide this afternoon?

The one that played in Round 1 or the one that half played in Round 2?

The one that played in the first half last week or the one that spectated in the second half?

Good question. If it's the round one team I reckon we'll lose by 4 goals (or if Adelaide are well off their game we might get closer)

If the round two team turn up. Well... 80 point + thrashing

In breaking news the team flew back last night because apparently we're no chance.

If we don't switch off like we did last week there's no reason why we can't take it up to them.

Another Saturday morning and I am optomistic as always. I am looking forward to that crucial moment, and we all know the scenario. Melbourne gets away to a good competitive start and them slowly but surely the opposition puts us to the test. I will be watching more closely than ever who rises to the challenge and who has been beaten to submission one too many times. Go Dees.

Adelaide are going alright but they are hardly unbeatable. Cut their cheap kicks where they set up play from the back half, tag smith with Kent if he plays, try to cut Sloane out around stoppages (in my opinion more damaging than paddy) and pressure the ball carrier through the midfield so tex doesn't get it lace out. I like our chances more at adelaide oval since it's not as wide, we get cut up from teams in the corridor because we defend too wide. This enables us to narrow our zone slightly. If nev and Tommy can keep Betts and walker quiet, and paddy doesn't go bonkers, we could be a sniff. Providing the team answers to last week's capitulation- a trait we haven't seen for years now.

Not wasting another beautiful Perth 27c and sunny day watching the game. I'll record it and will watch it later at night, that way I don't feel so bad having a bottle red or two drowning the pain.

Who will be at the game?

There's a difference between optimistic and stupid... We are no chance, back to the old days where you go into a game knowing we are no chance of winning, and the best thing to hope is we are in the game at qrt time and take that as a win

I usually defer to Garry Lyon when I do my football tips.

In Round 1, he picked the Suns to win. He got it wrong.

In Round 2, he picked the Dees to win. He got it wrong.

In Round 3, he picked the Crows to win. I am hoping for a hat trick from him.

Call me stupid as I am really looking forward to this game. It will be a good indication of where we are at and I am expecting a tough 4 quarter game. I am expecting to lose however it will be closer than many think. Hogan, Watts and Vanders to have standout games.

Last year we got smashed by GWS. The next week we lost to Port by 3 points. Is it stupid to think the same thing will happen?

definitely a two bottle match methinks. Will Jones play? Possibly 3.

I also have a hunch that it will be closer than what people think, however, ignoring the experts, I think that we will bring home the bacon in a repeat of last year.

Actually was Geelong who flogged us the week prior so that gives your point more credit... But Port were in a form slump then and adelaide are red hot atm.. Only chance we have is adelaide turning up complacent

I was feeling more than slightly morbid about our chances until I read this thread, but the optimism shining through in some of the posts has lifted my spirits to some extent. What a wonderful place this is ...........sometimes!

I asked my 5 year old nephew how much we would win by - he said 100 and thousand points. I'm going with that.

    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
