Father's Day v GWS - who will be there?

Recommended Posts

I've been to Simmonds stadium and Manuka oval this year so I may as well go to a game in the Melbourne CBD.

Who knows, maybe we might get our first win at this stadium for 8 years, a stadium located a whopping 7ks away from where we train.

No, seeing the players have checked out, shut up shop and turned off the light then so have I. Will go to the finals and watch skilled, committed teams that actually care and play for finals success.

As I was walking out yesterday I said there is no way in hell I'm going to GWS game, hate docklands and right now I hate my football team. Come sunday week will probably go for one last excruciatingly painful day before the good stuff starts for Demon supporters, the off season! The off season is the only time I seem to have any hope about this team ever getting out of the chasm they've been in for 8-9 years now!

I'll be there with my dad, probably sitting in the nose bleeds looking down at acres of empty seats on level 1. We'll be the ones telling the players exactly what we think of them and their pissweak performances.

I'll be there cos my dad is travelling up for it.

We love three hours away from each other and to be honest it's the only reason I'll renew next year.

Mmmm..... whatever floats your boat.

In all honesty if that is the mood you will be in then do not go.

Go somewhere and enjoy the day with your father.

It will be much better to have good fathers day memories of time spent with him.

Not a crap afternoon at the dome of death.

Please remember he will not be around forever enjoy him now.

I won't be there, I've got to work. Even if I had the day off I would be 50/50 on going. That performance on the weekend was an insult to the fans. Bruise free footy returned for the first half of that game and even the second half was pathetic.

This will be a high scoring game.. there will be absolutely no pressure from either side.

You don't need to apply pressure to Melbourne. Melbourne applies pressure to itself.

There could seriously be less than 10,000 people at this game.

Great fixturing by the league to have Melbourne vs GWS, two sides certain to miss the finals at the start of the year, playing at Etihad late on a Sunday in the final round of the year.

They could probably play it in Bali both lots of players are already there mentally.

I predict a record low crowd for the MFC.

Shame its our home game but then the players are killing this club. When they play to an empty stadium they might get the msg.

Nah they will just collect their fat pay cheques and head off on their end of season trip. Pina colada here we come.

I'll be there.

Haven't got any expectations in particular, but hoping to see more of that Hogan potential.

I've seen a reasonable smattering of both good football and horrible football on field this year, but the consistent thread in the games I've been to has been Jesse has done some exciting things out there. He's a pretty good reason to turn up to watch us play, and tbh we haven't had that many of them in recent years.

Probably cheaper for me to fly there and go to the game than to attend Subi.

I'll be there in spirit..

Probably a very angry [censored] off spirit by the end.

From my "footy injury" post:

"I've just finished booking flights/accommodation for the final round... will take him along to the Friday training and then to the game against GWS on the Sunday (there's a nice symmetry there as the other game we got to see was the opener against GCS - let's hope results go the same way)."

So yep, will be going as any result will at least take my son's mind off his injury even if just temporarily.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    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
