6. N Jones - Th next person who says this bloke isn't an A grade footballer needs to uppercut themselves immediately

5. Gawn - Star

4. Frost - Best of the back six. Finally starting to use his size and strength along with his speed

3. M Jones - Have to go close to his best game for the club. Didn't do a thing wrong all day that I can recall

2. Kent - A mixed bag but the good outweighed the bad. Very laconic at times, to put it kindly

1. Tyson - Lots of the ball, lots of tackles, lots of work rate, could've used it lots better

Jack Viney got caught too many times trying to gat onto his left side . Good side will block him off too easy

We continually criticise tornoveres from the defence, but ignore the midfield turnovers whic leave us even more vulnerable

6 Gawn - Really tried to lift us and was noticeable when he was off because Watts was killed in ruck area.

5 N.Jones - Not always clean but kept working. 

4 Frost - Great dash from the backline. Why did we all have to wait until Round 11 for him to be played as a defender.

3 T Mac - A couple of late kicking howlers spoiled what was a superb game - he wasn't Robinson Crusoe with the poor kicks though - hence no Vince or Viney this week.

2 Kent - Ran his heart out pressuring and if only Dawesy had figured out he was free early in last quarter.

1 Petracca - Great to see him really use his kicks well. He will be something - just not this year.

Apologies: Yes I did notice Matt Jones and had him in my top four Dees at half time. He faded in second half though. His best game yet for us though and there won't be any calls from me for his omission next week. Indeed it would be hard to find anyone worthy of the axe next week. We kick well and we win away by five goals.

Sorry I just realised I left out Tyson - who was our best player to half time. With more time he gets 3 from me and the others move down one.

Love it when it's difficult to limit the votes to 6 and pray for the days when this is a regular occurrence

6. N Jones -awesome captains display willed himself to win contests and was everywhere with his run on the outside 

5. Gawny - went up against 2 ruckmen intent on jumping into him all day and a 3rd man up but won hands down and was influential around the ground 

4. Kent - fantastic run and pressure acts all day. Used the ball really well and providing more than just dash at last

3. Frost - clear best defender on the ground who not only dominated with muscle and size but provided plenty of dash out of the backline 

2. Viney -just hard at it all day ran himself into the ground to get on the end of kicks and handballs to provide a link up

1. Petracca - very clean in conditions which weren't helpful to this but his ball use was exceptional. Showed great strength and power

Apologies to Watts Matty Jones Tyson and Stretch

Watts and Stretch get in because every time they get the ball we get another possession.  The rest are self explanatory.  I'm surprised by the love for Kent.  Great last half but he touched it 4 times in the first half and in addition tried to mark a ball in the square that was going through. If he'd reversed his half's he wouldn't have got much recognition.

We desperately need him to get some consistency through games because he adds so much when he's on.  He never inspires confidence with the ball and misses what many get. To me he's a very frustrating player.

Less angry today but, yes, there's no doubt they did yesterday. We do need to take it out of the umpire's hands though.

If West Coast has a three goal advantage at home we need to be a four goal better side (Confucius)

    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
