The whole forward set up and method of entry is shizen houzen Ox.  That puts pressure on the goal kickers when we get very few chances with set shots and mostly under the pump missing targets and/or getting nowhere near them etc.  Geelong on the other hand set up pretty well and mostly kick to the advantage of their forwards coming i50.

Very true rusty.

Thanks to the two blokes who were far more pist than I was standing on the steps of M12. High fives, beer spilling, copious amounts of swearing was not enough will Maxys kick thru the big sticks.

Was a great laugh though.

Anyway...

Fuggit.

Thats the way it falls sometimes - if we won by 3 points the same issues are there to work on - FWIW I am happy that it wasn't a blow out, and presumably % at the end of the year will be meaningful.

The 4 points will probably be more meaningful

Harmes just seemed to appear in the second half, was huge in the third. 

A gifted player that needs a spray from the coach along with a few others. 

Consistently flying for for marks that he shouldn't have been. 

Needs to settle on the Hollywood stuff. 

A couple of weak efforts from a couple of players. 

Coach needs to take responsibility for that loss.

No forward pressure

Letting them chip the ball to loose players

Issue hasnt been resolved since goowin took over. He is so focused on contested ball, he cant see the gaping holes it leaves ahead of the ball.

Cats deserved the win today.  1-2 men down for a half.  Good signs for us inside with Oliver and Trac. 

 

We persisted with the +1 for 3 minutes too long.

Lewis's leadership was on show with the 50m.

Pedo, apart from the mark was average.  Melksham needs to look at himself in the mirror.

Why did kick to Garlett most times in the air?

 

 

 

Gee wiz, we sold the farm for Lever.  He will be a good mobile tall in defence who had a rusty game 1, but we blinked badly last October/November..  Could have got him for a song, but caved in and gave them the farm.

 

 

Gawn had a tough kick.  Fully fatigued.  Can't blame him.

Jeez a lot of wrist slashing for a 3pt round 1 loss. Long way to go in the year! Lots to take out if it, learn from and apply for the rest of the season. 

Having said that still F&@$ed!!

I think you need to go back and read the initial post. All went missing (shots on goal).

Jetta had a mare. Looks very slow. Thought Wagner justified his place.

lol take your meds Chris. I have looked after more disabled people than you and Hardtack combined during my nursing career. You are lashing out after a loss like other "tards do.

Get over yourself nuffer.

Well done to Petracca and Gawn on talking an incredibly big game all pre-season, going down media street and pumping themselves up and failing when it counts.

Well done to all the players that talked up how the hurt would spur them on this season, and then they fold when Geelong are without Danger, Henderson, have three debutants and lose Harry Taylor 5 minutes in. That was a game a decent side wins well.

Some serious question marks about Goodwin after today. Maynard and Harmes in the same midfield is reminiscent of the Magner and Couch days. Absolute butchers of the footy. What was the gameplan today? Don't look, just kick it high. Pathetic.

A terrible, terrible loss.

Heard from a player sponsor that player s wont be picked on reputation. They’ll be picked on form and fitness. (Hence Tyson being left out) Which I liked hearing. 

However it can’t be true if Lewis played. No form or fitness leading into it. And couldn’t even run near the end of the match.

That 50 he gave away is unforgivable. As costly as Gawn’s miss. Should be dropped for next week and from the leadership group.

I flew down for the game, am absolutely gutted, Gawn needs to fly with two hands, Maynard and Wagner are not AFL level footballers, there was none of our pressure today, Geelong just did what they wanted from kick outs today.  You better turn up next week MFC the Lions are no easy beats.

As others have said, little change to some of the major issues from 2017:

- Single quarter drop-off effectively cost us the game (q2) and Goodwin unable to see this and arrest the problem. Difficult to stomach winning significant periods of the game but losing it ultimately due to allowing a team to run all over us for a quarter with next to no defensive pressure. 

- No system of forward entry. Bomb and hope. Jones' bomb to a 2 on 1 was a classic example. In fact, Goodwin seems to have doubled down on this as evidenced by his 'bring back the torp' campaign.  Geelong the opposite in that regard and reaped the benefits of their hard work

- Poor field kicking in general, which does not seem to be a priority

- Another game lost at the selection table, as called by many before the game had started. If a significant portion of the supporter base can see that the Wagner selection was costly, why can't the coaching staff?  I don't care that we are not part of the inner sanctum and don't know what they value - at the end of the day, you need to be effective with the ball and in contests, and today we were killed by Wagner and Maynard unfortunately and had superior options available

Defensive set up was also costly. Played into their hands and had Lever stuck on direct opponents he was losing to in one outs far away from other contests

Some serious issues to work on which unfortunately should have been sorted out over the offseason. Not great signs.

Another crying after a predictable loss.

Low footy IQ. (And probably low general IQ as well)

We will still make the finals, but i find the thrashing around for people to hate is quite amusing after a loss. This time it isnt me who is lookig for a target. lol.

We rarely lowered our eyes and went inside 50 meaningfully. Compared to Geelong who had less opportunities, but looked likely every time.

Seems basic but i have to agree we mostly blazed away.  Composure lacking once they hit the mid field with that next kick (when they get in the clear).  Only a handful of occasions where i saw lowering of eyes and hitting up (or trying to) a target.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
