Don’t care how much we win by. 

I am expecting a 4 Quarter 100% effort. 

This “away” game is an atrocious situation, in front of how many people?

Meanwhile our 100,000 seat home plays host to somebody else, yet again

The only way we can bring the Demons back to Melbourne is to win, so that we simply out grow these ca$h grabs

After lamenting how long we have to wait till the start of the game this afternoon and woundering how I was going to fill in the time, I recalled the televised curntain raiser game:

12:00pm Springs Redtails Vs Darwin All Stars, Ch:7 (7 Mate here in Qld).

Keen to check it out.

We go in full strength and in hot form, against a (admittedly very good) team with several of its best players out.  I know they will really want to win this one because of the media beat up about Lever, but as far as im concerned that works in our favor. They can waste a heap of energy focusing on one player while we go about our game.

Dees by 18 points in a tough, physical match.

If the crows were at full strength they would account for us easily I’d say. 

Today is 50-50 I reckon. Still don’t faith In us against top teams that set up well defensively so I reckon we’ll lose a close one. 

Hoping to be proved wrong!

Could not agree more. Myopic cash grab asgainst increased chance of home ground win. Making finals and flags is the penultimate $ boost. Plus I like to go to the footy.

Even 1 home game in NT would be too much.

The fact we play two each season is infuriating.

Back in 2011-12 we were thrown this scrap. Nobody else would have given it 5 minutes. 

To be still held to this contract, shows how highly we are valued by the AFL and the 17 other clubs. 

Winning is the only way to break the shackles

We match up very well against the Crows, and the last few years show this.

Bring the style of footy we have played over the last month and we win. Simple.

Match of the round for mine.

Pity that in a week where we broke our membership record, this game is being played in front of max crowd of 5000.

Got a feeling that I'll be watching through my fingers for much of it...us by 12.

I love the fact we play a game in Alice Springs and not just cause I live here, but to play a game in the heart of our country and to have the club visit and work with the communities, some of the most neglected places in our country (to a degree it shocks city folk to their core) makes me very proud of our club - long may it continue

It should be shared by all clubs. The negatives on player recovery will disadvantage the MFC every year. 

(The difference between 4th and 5th spot come September)

Meanwhile other clubs push for more MCG Games.

Our Demons have been improving and building in confidence over the last four weeks, delivering four great wins and a very good percentage boost.

While many want to say, who did we beat, I compare our efforts to how other teams went against them, Cats straight kicking got them a 28 point win over Blues, we had the biggest win over the Suns this year, Essendon have won their last two and even the Saints took it up to the Tigers for 3 quarter.

When you go through the Demons line by line, we have class spread across the team, and a lot are still improving in Hogan, Oliver, OMac, Brayshaw, Petracca, Frischt and then add Gawn, Hibberd, Viney, TMac, Melksham, Jetta.

Garlett, Hunt, Tyson, Bugg all can’t get a game.

When Demons win today, people will finally see how much talent, ability and the right commitment, our team is bringing in 2018!

Watching the Redtails game.  Good to see channel 7 have brought Gilbert McAdam in for the commentary.  Love his work on the Marngrook Footy Show.

Disappointed to see that we will get BT for the main game though.  Easily the worst, most annoying of comentators going round at the moment.

Confident we'll win today. Tipping about 3 goals in a tight game. Matt Crouch back is big for their midfield, he's probably their best player. They're still missing Sloane, Walker, McGovern, B Crouch, Smith though. If they were full strength I reckon they'd scrape over the line against us today. As it stands they're not full strength, this one is ours for the taking. Go Dees!

    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
