Heh, you always know Dean Ku..err Kent won't be far away when there's a blue on either.

I still laugh about last year against Adelaide when he completely ragdoll a crow player and just literally grabbed and threw him out of the pack with such ease.

He is living up to his name.

Fell just short of qualifying for Rio in the hammer throw.

Actually hate rance now

Is that the same Rance that Dear Bruce was orgasmic over last year despite the fact that Hogan in one of his first games took him apart?

Hittite someone in the back of the head is extreme dangerous. It is the true definition of a cowards punch,  deserved to be flattened by Viney- he should get an award! 

That is exactly what is all too regularly killing (and maiming) our youth.  Needs to be very solidly hit on the head (pun intended) by those in charge.

Very symbolic of the way we have been treated in the past, by media and opposition alike, and very symbolic of the way we are and will be from now on.

Lol. Jack's too focused for that. The few times I have seen him in person, he just seems to be a total professional and I imagine him living and breathing football 24/7.

Jack is currently winning the herald sun player of the year. 

and my respect for him has gone to a whole new level, threw an All Australian defender to the ground like a sack of [censored] to show him what a little [censored] he is. 

I am disgusted by the Sympathy Rance is getting, it was a dog act, needs to be totally gone from the game.

I thought the commentary watching the replay was pathetic on this. They said something like they feel sorry for Rance for being bombarded for so many years. [censored] off. That shouldn't condone his cowardly act.

Brad Ebert should get weeks for that.

He should have known that an elbow in the kidney from behind would cause this re-action.

Reckless

High impact

To the knuckle

Honestly... He even took his mouth guard out to inflict further damage! Gutless.

Jack was being beaten...Jack was the one crying on the weekend. They sucked him in...still a lot to learn before he becomes a true leader. What Jack did was a sign of what the team did all day.

At least he came back later in the game and did what he should have done in the first place...

does anyone think Viney will get off?

the first two punches I reckon were insifficient force for a suspension but the third is low impact id think.   hard to see him avoid a week.

Thought Viney was off early on when he was going head to head for a ball with Robbie Gray, JV shirked and RG ran away with it, most confusing, set the tone for the day.

I can't see how he escapes without a week. If it were just 1 smack then he'd just get a fine because Ebert wasn't hurt. But to do it 3 times wasn't a good look.

Hoping he just gets the one week. The rest might do him the world of good and let's face it we won't beat Hawthorn this week.

Have him fresh for Queens birthday V's Collingwood, which is a game in our weight division.

Hopefully he only gets a week, but the fact here were 3 punches doesn't make it look good. He might get 2-3 weeks if we're unlucky.

We're no hope against the Hawks, especially without him there and firing. Hopefully he is back for the the game vs the Pies.

They were slaps with the exception of the last one which is inconclusive. Ebert will do the right thing and say it was a slap. $1500 fine, move on. :)

Gone.  He'll be sent straight to the tribunal, three weeks down to two with an early plea, and Roos will send him to the naughty corner.

Other teams will look to provoke him until he proves he can control his temper.

Can accept a week.

sauce - Keane's Twitter account 

Actually not a disastrous result IMO. We won't win on Saturday regardless, and he can rest up for the winnable Pies game. Hopefully he has a big game as he owes the side one.

    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

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
