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

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.

    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

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition
