Thank-you Paul Roos for your fantastic efforts turning our club around, truth be told though, I won't miss you on game days.

Pathetic. That loss had nothing to do with Roos.

Well, that sucked.

We didn't want it early and we couldn't peg them back.  We had more of the ball in the end, more inside 50s and so forth, yet we played right in to their hands.  It's not good enough and I'm positive, with another pre-season under our belts, we will get better at these situations.

Hogan needs to fix his kicking, no doubt about it.  But to suggest he has an 'attitude' problem is ridiculous and disrespectful.  19 touches and 14 marks in horrid conditions is a damn good day out.  It's tainted, of course, with his kicking for goal, but that can be fixed.

And if I see posters claiming our culture hasn't changed and so forth, then you need to take a good, hard look at yourself.  You know it has changed.  We need to eliminate these types of losses, but I suspect this will motivate the boys for a big pre-season and a crack at finals in 2017.

Just noticed it was 20 free kicks to 5 today.  I hate blaming something like this, but to suggest we only earned a total of 5 free kicks in a game of footy is ludicrous.

Disagree, obviously.

 

let them have the extra man in defence all day, that way we had an extra player for 'ball use'. Sorry, but on a wet day that makes no sense. Go man on man, get the ball and get it forward. Instead, all day, we had players look up and have Carlton numbers in front of them so they hand balled excessively. 

 

Yes there were were many other factors, but to me Roos could have changed things to stop the overuse of handball and didn't.

Worse loss than the essendon 1 in my opinion, have something to play for and go to water, still a mentally weak club I don't think Roos wanted to win with the selections they made, Weideman for pedo was a terrible decision, if they come out and beat geelong I will be livid

I can't see the forest for the trees right now, despite our overall progress. I'm absolutely livid with that predictably awful display.

All week long hearing about how much of a percentage booster this game needed to be, but deep down I knew we'd drop this match. Heartbroken.

Overuse of handball. No one wants to take responsibility in kicking the ball. Partly caused by no players up forward to kick to. Playing dry weather football in the wet doesn't work.

I'm just really dissapointed in the club. 

For the first time in a long time they gave us hope and then put in a performance like today. 

Its inexcusable considering what was on the line today.

Have a little rule that I wait a day before posting after a bad loss... but that is just shattering.

We had a real opportunity to at least go into the preseason with nothing and no one to fear... but that's shot for now.  

The best I suppose we can hope for after a loss like that is that it spurs the players into action and steels their resolve, but I've seen too many losses like that and it's had the opposite effect.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
