Neither crowd is pleasing considering entry to the AFLW match was free.

I feel that it is all a waste of time, AFLW. Never read the articles, just cannot watch a game - even televised. Quambatook Under 12s generally play a better game and exhibit better skills. Nar Nar Goon Under 13s are equally impressive as a training ground for future AFL stars. I know it is a little sexist to think this way but women cannot play footy. There are exceptions but a game is a game with nearly 40 players on the ground and I wouldn't attend to watch just one of them who might know what is required in this game. Send them on to the netball where they are more popular, or the hockey, or the basketball.

I think what you and others fail to appreciate is that Watts was let go for cultural reasons more than his footballing prowess.

I appreciate it. I just think good clubs back in a strong culture to turn players around, particularly if they have a talent that our list needs. 

I also know a lot about Jack, he is a professional, a lovely guy and a great clubman and I think that statements about  his negative impact on culture are greatly exaggerated. Plenty of our players like a good time and as far as I hear, that is all Jack is guilty of.

Rocking up to his 9th season (2017) he was still half dedicated to the cause.

He'd run out of time.  The right decision was made.

Best you let it go.

I hate this line of reasoning.

We have a list full of blokes who are professionals, great guys and great clubmen.  Why does Jack get held on some sort of pedestal while others aren't?  

As PD mentioned above, he still couldn't turn up to pre-season training in good nick or with the right dedication to the cause in his 9th season.  How many more chances did he need?  He had run out and the right decision was made for all involved.

to break from the monotony of discussing former demons, i'm interested to see how cats tune up against the peptides today - the peppies looked atrocious against the reigning premiers last hit-out, and the cats weren't exactly massively impressive either

i think it'll give us a good gauge as to how they're going to cover defensive frailties - missing henderson for the first part of the season is really going to compound the absence of lonergan and mackie, leaving taylor as their primary tall, when he plays better as the intercept reader of the play as a rule

can tomahawk and crameri gel?

will tim kelly continue to show that he's ready to alongside duncan provide a real threat as their second string mids behind the trio of jesus dangerwood?

Pannell on track to set the record for giving out the most amount of frees in a quarter. 

I was just thinking that I hate both these sides and hope they fill the last two spots on the ladder so are in that sense I’m neutral but the umpiring in this match is deplorable

22 free kicks in the first quarter alone. Wow wee.

Dangerflog went down into the rooms with what looked like a rolled ankle. Commentators talking it up but he seemed to be moving walking without any issues.

But I really hope Dangerfield has an injury. 

Yep, it will provide Vince with another target on his body. Vince already controls his mind.

I thought it looked like an achilles tweak. Seemed to roll forward with his foot planted and then quickly tried to correct.

Walking around in the rooms, we shall see what happens.

I wouldn’t be relying on opposition injuries to help us win games. It doesn’t work that way. A few years ago now, we played Hawthorn in Round 1 and they had several of their top players missing. It didn’t help us at all.

Besides, Danger off no previous game time had 12 disposals in the first quarter. If he manages to get up to play against us,  he’s still the danger man.

    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
