[censored] I'm still seething. 

A loss for words at least now we get a top 10 picks for lever.

I will [censored] lose it if vince gets offered a contract extension

What our "best 22" should be doing is driving down to Casey Fields to add their support to the VFL Demons in their Finals Campaign. Whereas most of our coveted "best 22" are ineligible to play VFL, surely there is nothing impeding Lewis, Jetta, T. Mac, Jones etc participating in training drills to ensure that our VFL is the best prepared going into this year's Final Series. Hopefully this support will ensure that they don't fall at the final hurdle as we did last year.

Go (Casey) Dees!

Not sure any team has missed the finals by a smaller margin in terms of percentage - 10, 11 points?

Another forgettable record which we'll no doubt hold for yonks.

I read somewhere it's the smallest margin for a team to miss the finals by, ever.

Wow, I still can't believe this horrible feeling in my gut exists nearly two days on and I'm afraid it won't go away any time soon. Can't bear to watch the next 4 weeks of football in all honesty.

How many weeks out of the 23 did we spend out of the 8?

It doesn't really matter though does it Simon Goodwin, after all, it matters where you sit at the end of the 23 weeks.

Of the 23 rounds, we finished 16 of them in the 8 (i.e. before this week, only 6 weeks out of the 8).

Like when Bugg king hit a player? Or Lewis or Hogan or Vince's cheap shots? They were a great help to us getting suspended.

Try some footy skills and nouse.

Thought I'd give myself 12 hours to digest the situation before commenting on it, but I've still got nothing nice, positive or good to say about this heartless, gutless playing group.

Yep, the dogs missed out by 0.6% in 1955.

This sure is depressing but the last 1-2 months felt like we were limping to the finish line. All injuries and suspensions really hampered any continuity in the side. 

The club and players got way ahead of themselves, the sun may be out and trying desperately not to reach for the veil.. broken.

Pretty sure we spent 18 of the 23 weeks inside the 8. My heart is being twisted into all kinds of knots

I had a rough night.. Didn't sleep too well & was dreaming about what happened, I can't believe it affects me this badly.. I'm worse today than I was last night. It'll hurt the players no doubt but I honestly think it hurts us long time die hard fans more, going to take awhile to get over this... I hope someone from the club fronts the media today, we need an apology

Sorry haven't read the whole thread, my apologies if a hundred other people have said the same thing - but hear hear, Ethan.

 

One hint, one sliver of celebration and I'm outta here. The useless flogs don't deserve a moment's celebration - they've got their bloody pay cheques (paid for with my twenty years of membership), which is all they care about.

 

Eff off and hit the gym and the training track, you pathetic gutter bugs.

Not sure if mentioned already, Max Gawn during the week on SEN was saying most of the guys had played finals in under 18s or VFL. "so it wasnt really new to them" . 

1. No clue on what it means to play AFL.

2. Huge lack in desperation to make it, that was clear on Saturday.

3. unbelievable lack of respect for the supporters. 

Oh cool, you played finals in junior footy. Get a grip mate this is AFL!!! How about you (as a team) start to give something back to thr club and supporters that provide you with such a privileged life.

I could see darkness after our Brisbane win. I only made one post on our win because I felt so flat. I was very pleased with Hogan's great performance and was relieved we won but deep inside I was very worried we failed to finish them off and built some percentage buffer when we had the chance. This made a win against Collingwood a must do. Essendon and WC knew what they had to do. The  arrogance and hubris from the club is worst in the competition.

The club is in lockdown. I suspect there's a stringent PR plan being put in place. The club has to be pretty careful with its brand management. Damned if they do, damned if they don't atm.

Honestly, has anyone got any suggestions for alternative things to do than sit through the 2017 AFL Finals series? I'm willing to take up anything. Dancing, Arthouse movie groups, badger baiting, anything other than watching this Finals series!

That's what s#its me... Us supporters still have to wake up this morning and slug out the daily grind and go about our normal week with this burden while they can drown their sorrows on the [censored] & in a week or 2 time will all be off galavanting around europe, the US, bali wherever it is with the 2017 season a distant memory while us supporters stew over this for 6 months.

On a seperate note we as supporters are the ones who cop the s#it from everywhere, I doubt any players reveive multiple text messages last night copping it from mates and they wont walk into work this morning and have the whole office laughing and making you the butt of all jokes..  The players can seriously get effed

I hate the Club at the moment for the way they let themselves down and their supporters down. There is no way to put a positive spin on that first quarter. It was a disgrace of the highest order and really shows the need for an attitude transplant. I would have liked Goodwin to have shown a bit more anger, hurt and disappointment in his presser. Seemed far too relaxed about it for my liking.

Got nothing mate, this is as bad a feeling as the one I felt after my high school sweetheart dumped me.

    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

    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
