We're still yet to beat a team in the top 8, I will dream and believe when that happens. Until then.....

Not sure if the author watched the game against the Crows. Oscar fretful every time the ball came down? 

Jenkins and Walker had 3 marks between them for a combined score of 1.1. Hogan was quiet but still managed more marks than both of them.

I didn’t mind the analogy he used to describe Hogan right now.

Oliver started at FF? No wonder we got smashed in the clearances early. We've got TMac and Hogan in the team and Oliver starts the game at FF?

I couldn't believe the set up.

Does Goodwin bet against us on the QT?  Took him 10 minutes to fix it.

Would love an explaination maybe I am missing something

It was about this time last year, when we beat WCE, that the press had us with one hand on the cup already. Turns out that doesn't actually count for anything.

I don't get how one 5 goal lead blown, followed by one salvaged, somehow improves our credentials with the press? Unless they have the memory of a goldfish?

Suggestion: ignore the press. They don't know any more than any knowledgeable fan.

Only one thing matters. Wins, more wins, and more wins.

Your not there till your there it’s all pissin wind up until you get there. 

Agree totally with the quote.

still it’s more enjoyable than looking at the number one draft pick and who we might choose ! 

Enjoy. If you can. GO DEES !!

I am not an Oscar fan but he did start very poorly and got better as the game went on.

Needs some goal kicking lessons from his brother as that could have been the sealer...

Funny you bring that up. Melksham was on the Sunday footy show and was asked about OMac having a shot at goal. 

Melksham said that OMac actually beat him in a goal kicking comp at training one day. After a bit of OMac gloating, Milkshake said to him “ If you ever get the chance to line up at goal you will absolutely ?  your dacks”.

They were 6-3 leading into the game in Alice

Ah yep, I was thinking of GWS. Crows were 4th, GWS were 11-12th. But when we played the Crows in Alice they were decimated by injury. 7th after we flogged them.

True but the fact people including the media say we haven’t beaten a team inside the 8 which is totally untrue. 

You can only beat who you play at the time and at the time they were 4th.

Who cares what the media say mate, they are paid to dribble crap. I still say we've beaten no one and that is because the Crows were decimated by injury, it was a brutal win though. What happened back then means nothing for what's coming up. Hopefully a repeat of 2000, except we go all the way would be just superb shutting up Tigers fans.

Let’s hope so ?. I do believe we are well prepared now to take some big scalps leading into the final few rounds. That Geelong loss, while I still can’t stop thinking about will prove to be a lesson well learnt, and the win in Adelaide will build huge belief and hold us in good stead for the final 4 weeks.

Goodwin has made a habit of surprise player positioning at the start of games eg starting TMac in the middle usually to our detriment...without checking I think we have rarely won the first quarter when that happens.  So, I don't like his attempts to confuse the opp coaches.

But to give him the benefit of the doubt with Oliver at FF, I wonder if that was to give him a chance to 'warm up' after his quad tightness during the week.  Just a thought.

As an aside, we certainly need to fix our slow starts as playing catch-up is a fraught with danger!  Putting players in best positions would be a good start.

if you look at omac's draft year highlights you will see him kicking some nice long distance goals. i think he was a fwd in those days and had a nice kick

Jesus I hate these articles. Absolutely hate them!

It's like the media knows how we react in these situations, then they write a fluff article about us and 'premiership chances' just to add to the tension and troll and then watching us burn and fall over at the finish line.

JUST GET THE JOB DONE MELBOURNE! I CAN'T GO THROUGH THIS ANOTHER YEAR IN A ROW. JUST WIN!

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
