Round 23 Non MFC Games

Recommended Posts

Its like a bad dream that you have all week. You know everything is about to go wrong and you have no control of it.

You have this shocking feeling in the pit of your stomach all week. The weekend arrives, and you are forced to watch, realising that the bad dream is not a bad dream at all... it's a reality that you are living, and once again you have no control.

Cesspool it is for the summer, then.  Shame.

I really do hope this burns the players as deeply as they have ever been burned before.  We had it, and we lost it.  I hope they go away and take a good, long look at themselves over this summer and put in a pre-season like they've never put in before.  We must learn from it and ensure that it doesn't happen again.

We are a joke. Should never have come to this . I am done. I will never renew my membership. I am sick of paying money for shite. 

Well done Melb you suck

F*** off then. While you're at it buy yourself a Crows membership.

They [censored] me off too, but I'll still be renewing my membership.

What a waste of a season.

2 x losses to NM, 1 x loss to Freo and can't even beat the filth when they have nothing to play for and we have everything to play for.

Disgrace. No other word for it. Have just about had it with this club.

Gawn needs a serious rocket, his pathetic back half of the year cost us. The McDonald liabilities need to be seriously considered as trade bait (both are too unreliable with the ball and decision making).

Hogan had a [censored] of a season and Viney was playing perpetually injured (our FD rushed them back and paid the price)

As for Goody and his mantra of 'wait until round 23', he clearly doesn't know how to fire them up too well, as we have shot ourselves in the foot sooooooo many times this year.

Fark, MFC can go and jump as far as i'm concerned. Player's don't care enough, if they did, they wouldn't have turned in that crap yesterday. We'll be lucky to crack 40,000 members next year.

Most disappointing thing is now I have to wait another year to see us turn up to a final with 50% intensity, get flogged and have everyone to say 'oh but it was their first final so they were overawed'. Was hoping to get that particular excuse out of the way this season. Oh well, those at the MFC get to keep that excuse up their sleeve for another year which will suit them quite nicely.

Ha ha unbelievable.

We all know we didn't deserve to play finals. We are still just an ordinary football club.

Ask anybody at your workplace what they think of the MFC???? 

We scraped in against the Eagles when Jetta could have sealed it.

We have been ordinary the last six or so weeks. Just beat Brisbane and Saints.

Our players believe they are better than what they are and drink their own bath water.

Jake Lever would be wise to look elsewhere!!!!!!

.5 That was all. [censored]. We are still the laughing stock of this competition. 

Feel like going down to the club and rioting or doing something. I hope this burns in the players gut all pre season. 

I would have loved to see us have a crack at port.

You get what you deserve Melbourne! Let's hope this burns all preseason for them, they're probably preparing mad Monday for tomorrow though ????

Can imagine the Whatsapp group

Gawn: Frothies tommorrow boys!

Vince: Chapel St or Swan St?

Petracca: Chapel for sure! etc.

Gawn: Nah Brunny fellas.

Sadly, we got what we deserved (these words keyed through bleary eyes).  I can't remember ever being so disappointed with the final result of a football season. The only slight redemption is that it might put some  steeliness in the gut, and fire in the belly of our players.  Christ's sake they need it!

That's the only positive I see coming out if this.

Had they limped across the line they'd all be patting themselves on the back for making finals.

Hope it hurts bad

Well I blame Jack Watts.

He missed a couple of set shots earlier in the year that would have made all the difference......................................

10 years achieving nothing. What's 1 more?

No other club tears their supporters hearts out the way you do. This is a new level of sadism, even for the MFC. I can't describe how gutted I am right now. [censored] you for making me feel this way.

 I feel sorry for all of us and the half-dozen players who gave a ship* yesterday. Yep, should never have come to this anyway; hoping to scrape in on another team's defeat. Come a long way but still a long way to go....

It won't. I've been hoping that for fifty years.

Just think of those games where we let the opposition teams score right near the end of the quarter. 

You know what makes this worse, Tigs finish top 4 and the scum got in.

I wonder if the boys all got together to watch that game? I'm sure they will be hurting as much as we are and hopefully thinking about some of the [censored] efforts they dished up over the year.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    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
