Absolutely copping it from Collingwood supporters. You'd think the morons had made the 8 the way they're carrying on. 

[censored] you melbourne. If I had any sense I'd support another team 

I'm getting totally panned as well. I might be naive but I thought a lot more people would feel for us and say we did alright but no it's just relentless s*** piling. Can't wait to walk into work tomorrow to a pie in the face

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

Instead of acting like a petulant child, look at where we've come from and vision the trajectory upwards. We are a couple of good players away from being a finals side. Goodwin will burn this lesson into them over the preseason.

Nup people are finding this hilarious. Surprisingly many opposition fans hate us. Especially anyone connected to the pies would be laughing. 

Should be tuning into sen and hearing the dees fan ring up Finey.

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. 

WCE players still get paid this week too, other teams find motivation. Our teams lack of it is a cruel mystery

Sorry, but that lesson should have burnt in at least 5 times already this season.

Agreed. Maybe Goodwin needs to get tougher over summer. Will be interesting to see if Watts and a few others are offered up.

They can GAGF. We hear this every year. Had years of being irrelevant, now we are only relevant as a laughing stock. Disgusting effort from the club.

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.

 

This is where I'd like a 'multiple like' button.

It would sh!t me no end to think the pea hearts who should be playing for us next week are lining up their fancy dress costumes tonight.

Exactly, how many years do we have to put up with the excuses? How many years do we have to be "a few players away from success."

Enough is enough. Seriously. A team with nothing to play for yesterday just outperformed us. A team with everything to play for didn't show up until QT. 

Today, two teams with everything to play for showed up and earned their desserts.

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

People that are suggesting that most of the players are hurting to a significant degree are dreaming. Given they fear expectation its a relief to have missed for them. It can only hurt players (to the point that it drives them) if they gave their all and just fell short. Not the case. They essentially froze when it counted. We should naturally improve as you would expect of a young and talented list but any talk that this was a learning year which will drive us is bulldust. Just an absolutely shitful below expectation end to the year with no learnings just more scares for players

This is a new low in the history of this club. There is not a single defence against any accusations that we are a weak club, and it's going to take a lot to live it down. Currently, and until 2018 proves otherwise, which is hard to imagine, the Melbourne Football Club has achieved nothing in changing how we are perceived by the football community. I hope it's representatives feel embarrassed, because that's what they deserve. 

Well said. 

The Club has nowhere to hide now

we must Trade so hard to improve this list

We won't get anymore help...

This is why in times like this I also follow the melbourne storm. apart from having the salary cap issue they have given me finals every year to watch. They have players that go out and give 100% every week, they back up 2 days after origin. 

Well thank god im away for 4 days and wont have the media to read or watch. 

I hope the players feel numb right now.

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    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
