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

The club should ban mad Monday, any player caught drinking out tomorrow shall rot at Casey for the first 6 weeks of the season.

They can drink at home all they want but going out in public after this weekends debacle would just be spitting in our faces.

New level of disappointment.....lot if wake up calls needed......like next season, how about starting in round 3!!! Anyone care right now about where we finished in JLT cup this year?? We went too hard too early....copper a heap of injures and failed when it counted

It seems we don't stagger our training correctly,probably understandable, since we never play in September.

See you all next year.

West Coast played today, like we should have played yesterday.  They were prepared to go the extra yard, and we on the other hand ....................... oh forget it.  Everyone knows what I mean.

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!

We all hope it would put fire in their belly but does anyone believe it actually will? They will still get paid this week. They don't care.

They also specialised in giving up goals at the start of quarters.

It's irrelevant anyway - fire in the belly doesn't suddenly give you basic league standard skills.

We're always going to leave the door open for disaster.

No more than 3 or 4 will give a [censored] if we play finals or not. 

Like i said in another thread, we have a team of Jack Watts's who dont care as long as they get paid.

MFC stand for nothing.

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.

I just got off the phone and was saying the same thing, we definitely played a lot worse when he came back, why? I have no idea.

Can we blame Gawn for missing that goal early yesterday or even jeffy or Tom for that stupid kickout to Cox. 

This is why 5 years ago it was easier to support them when we were getting done every week. Yes they broke our heart but at least we knew they were crap. We didnt have to get nervous about finals. 

This hurts big time.  A shocking way to miss finals. 

at least we are giving people a laugh

I was there in 1987. That was worse.

What happened this weekend was so predictable, so I was well and truly prepared for the inevitable outcome.

I don't know what to do with myself. Usually I can just focus on the draft, but it means SFA now. Coming to Demonland feels like going to your ex's Facebook just after breaking up. Heartbreaking and sad.

I'm leaving this site for awhile.

    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
