ANB out for Salem is the easiest decision in the world.

One of either Harmes or Tyson for Viney.

I liked Harmes game today

If it was either Harmes or Tyson...sorry ...Harmes out.

Tyson is infuriating at times...but his games are invariably misunderstood...imho

Just 4 points off 3rd spot on the ladder.

(and 22%)

Gawn kicks that goal and we're 5th and Cats are 11th. Sliding doors

Well it was finally nice to see us win live. 

Look in that final quarter I think we got dragged down to the saints level, but i will take that win every day of the week. There were many good things. Hogan was sensational, Gawn just did what he does, the saints players tried to rough him up before the bounce and all that happened was he won the tap and put it straight down to Jones I think, so that backfired, Oliver was fantastic but I wish he'd kick more. 

It is so good to see Brayshaw going back into packs, just diving in for the ball with confidence. Yes he fumbled at times but he was great today. Jetta was just awesome. 

anyway at times we over handballed, missed easy tackles and at times today our tall fowards went up at once and I think we need Jeff back just to crumb it or put on some defensive pressure. But we did some great things and hopefully next week we have another great win. 

Oh and I don't think Etihad is our bogey ground anymore.

Didn't see a certain game we lost by 186?

The 1988 grannie is the winner of the worst game for the last 60 yrs.

This afternoon was as far away from a bad game as you will see.

Trying to work out who will make way for Captain Courageous next week.  Thought we had a good even team effort this week.

Wise even my missus who really doesn't understand the footy that well could see we Were stuffed in the last quarter. Too much negativity on here.

Yep spot on. We were running on fumes. I wonder if we have put in a big training block with a view to tapering and peaking come finals time as we have struggled to run out a few games now. 

The way footy is played ATM it is going to be a very long season. Th fittest side might well win this years's flag.

Yes, but ANB for Salem or Viney? isn't Viney due back next week? Who would you choose, I feel that Viney scares opposition players (i really like that) even if Salem is a better kick and has some mongrel of his own.

I love Viney, but think he should play 3/4 of a game at Casey before returning

Must applaud  Goodwins coaching. His use of Hogan and TMac on the wing and up forward has been a master stroke. I like him putting Fritsch on the wing and he has got the midfield connecting well. I was mad with him after those 2 losses to the toiges  and hawks but all is forgiven.

100% agree.

Interstate game that is more than winnable without his inclusion. Why take the risk.

ANB covers heaps of ground and does great repeat gut running. He just is not a smart user of the footy. I think he has a spot in the team but he has to fix his decision making.

Pls.. not to take offence but two points.

1/. More than a few things to work on

2/ The more relevant notion...just 9 to go.

We need to change this view. We need to go out to win EVERYTHING ..not just enough.

Just enough lets fades slip in.. enough lets % go begging... enough lowers standards.

We need to WANT it all...not just enough.

This IS actually a major stumbling block.

I'll be interested to see what happens with this - the umpire was on the right side of the contest and paid a free kick instantly, so he must have hit him high.  He might have played it up a little but I doubt he'll get anything more than a fine for it.

We win a game of footy by close to 7 goals and do it with ease, and this is the garbage our supporters serve up.  You should be embarrassed.

Very happy and relieved with the win.

Yes, it could or should have been more because the Saints are terrible.

But we are a work in progress and there are very positive signs, and a group of players beginning to make their mark. 

Every win no matter how it is attained helps to build confidence and belief.

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.
