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!

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football
