When I get up at 3:30am tomorrow I’ll be expecting a loss and hoping for a win.

MFCSS is like a second skin at the moment.

Bitter has risen in Katherine 

I shall end my perilous outback odyssey in Darwin this afternoon and make a grand entrance at the football this evening 

I expect the team to be inspired by my presence and thrash those Westralians soundly!

I was under the impression you were to do some interpretive dance as the half time entertainment. Probably get a guard of honor by the players as you leave the arena

never felt more comfortable about a result... though after the last 3 rounds its probably just apathy...

I hate these types of games. We’ve come off a bad loss, so even a win is going to be annoying on some level. I don’t even want to think about a loss. 

Bring back that feeling from our mid season streak where we were licking our lips at the prospect of playing crap teams.

I can see Ross Lyon flooding the backline, jamming up the 20 m - 40m zone in front of goal.  We will need to be much better at f50 entries, and not let the slingshot goals from their defense happen like last week.

Brayshaw to play on Brayshaw?

think they will rove to Max.

2-3 goals per quarter better.  Dees 56 pt winners

Ok. As it stands, we’re in the 8 (albeit just) with the second highest % in the comp.

Let’s put the wallowing in misery to one side for a moment and consider that if we win tonight, we’re still a good show to make finals. We can do this. 

If we should lose tonight, then I’ll burn the whole [censored] to the ground, shave my head, climb a bell tower and finish off any stragglers. 

Go Dees.

Unlike previous weeks the team just feels right. Time for the two Christians to stand up and show some maturity and consistent impact. I think this is the reset we should have had post Pies game plan wise that we should launch from over the back 8.

Although if TMac starts on a wing.........

I wish I was as confident of making finals as I am of beating the Dockers today.  Our home ground advantage will get us over the line by around 8 goals.

I must confess I have an odd situation.

A preorganised present of a weekend away at a winery...fine dining tonight and tour of said winery with associated imbibings  will have me otherwise entertained and my time accounted for.

I might sneak an occasional look of the scores....or might not.

I hope the team has more enthusiasm than I do for this game. Watching Richmond tear up our beloved G , watching them despatch yet another opponent like throwing out the rubbish only torments this Demon supporter.

The game really isn't that complicated. It's not really that hard to play. We just make it appear so. We just need to strip away all the facade of 'cleverness'. We need to demystify the art of kicking and passing. We just need to play footy...play it as it's possible in simple style. No convoluted passages of play that invariably overcook necessity. 

If only those running around in Yellow and Black we're indeed our Red and Blue I'd be more keen to find a way to watch tonight.

I'm not bothering. Yet again a season hangs on a precipice of our own hewing. 

I really hope we win.

I'm more interested in the wine

Go Dees

Thrilled Jeffy is playing today. 

I know he can go missing in games - whole games - and heck, maybe even his VFL form probably doesn't warrant it!

But the guy is a star small forward, he can turn it on and be a real influence. I think he is the player we've been crying out for in our forward line, and I reckon he'll capitalise on our high inside 50 game.

Hope he doesn't leave the team again, even say after a couple of lean games.

Garlett is the type of player that won’t build form at Casey. Needs to be in the action. If he lays tackles, pressures and snags one or two then his job is done. Everything else is a bonus.

And, no doubt, he'll very proudly wear the indigenous jumper.  Just hope it is an extra spur for him to turn in a blinder in the top end.

Picked up a slab of Furphy from Uncle Dan's this morning and how we play tonight will dictate how much of it gets drunk this evening.

I'm actually looking forward to kicking back and watching a Saturday night game that will be filled with long bombs to the top of the square, lots of fumbles and some dodgy performances down back that result in easy goals to the opposition.

That said, I'm backing us in to win by about 6 goals to help us begin to get our season back on track.

It's pretty much a lose-lose game.

If we win, we'll either struggle (fail), or it'll be a ho-hum performance (fail), or we'll smash them, in which case it will be either "where was that last week" or "flat track bullies/pretenders" again.

Been in Darwin for the week, enjoying the monotonous great weather, blue skies and heat. 

Really confident we’ll win tonight and looking forward to seeing AFL footy top end style.

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    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
