Waiting for Steve's analysis on the McDonald boys and Frosty. 

I was there, or should I say I am here.  A win for the ages. Our running, particularly defensively was outstanding.

The pants were off, the scarf was waving and the dimmies went flying as my wife and mother in law came home from dinner with as Truck got his goal with about ten minutes left! 

I asked how their dinner was and they said not as good as mine by the looks of things! 

GO YOU GOOD THANGS! 

THAT WAS WILD!

All I asked for was for the players to contest and boy did they contest. I cannot remember a Melbourne team going that hard for so long, hunting in packs and tackling. Maybe have to go back to the days of John Northey coaching. That is an awesome result and a great return for Bernies 200th. Go Dees

I was there tonight. Went up from Melbourne with my son as his 7th bday present! The boys delivered big time. When we were 26 down, away, against a good side, undermanned, I thought it would get ugly. 

So much to like about tonight. The way the backline setup, the numbers we got to the ball, the incredible tackling, the 1 on 1 performances and the even contribution.... magic win!

Can't wait till we put together a four-quarter effort. This three-and-a-half-quarter business is seriously hurting our percentage.

If we can play with the same intensity for four quarters every week I have no doubt we'll get there. Bloody frustrating team though.

This win reinforces exactly what frustrates us loyal fans. We know how good they can be, when they click we look like one of the most exciting teams in the comp! We should have another couple of wins, but we're 4-4 because we're so up and down!

I love this club for better or worse but jeez they don't make it easy on us! Having said that it does make wins like this tastier!

Hopefully this gives the boys the self belief they need to see it pays off to continually and consistently pressure the opposition and turn up to the game mentally switched on from the start no matter who the opposition is.

Hogan needs to change the way he plays (less calling for ball on his head) and Melbourne need to stop always looking for him as the first option.

Speechless..

Amazing what half time can do to you. Tyson went from junk to spunk. Was another big contributer in the 2nd half along with Petracca Tmac and even Kenty.

Speaking of Tmac, please Goody leave him up forward! Has an absolute huge tank and could play that roaming  Nick Reiwoldt style CHF. I saw a pretty decent forward out there tonight. Frosty is already proven that he is more then capable of being our number 1 defender. 

Oscar's best game in red and blue colours. Completely shut out that pretender in Josh Jenkins.

Said at half time that for us to be any chance Petracca has to go in the midfield. What he did tonight was just a small tip of the iceberg on what hes capable of. Upside is huge!

Lock Oliver and Jetta for All Australian. enough said.

Pedolanko! To think we could have kept Dawed ahead of him. Doing everything right to suggest he's best 22 for the whole year.

Hibberd Salem were the class down back. Salem will be a star once he gets that 50 to 80 games under his belt.

Awesome game byJetta and thought Watts games was really good even though he didn't kick any goals this week.

Viney is back, and brilliant coaching especially putting TMac in the forward line.

The boys really wanted it and they got it!

As the great Butch Gale (nearly) said "I tipped that". TMac forward

    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
