  • Podcast: Draft Wrap Up w/Jason Taylor  

Recommended Posts

You know that for me the Collywobbles is back and they have secures their 27 th Runner up  a record that will never be broken. However they lost another close one and that was made to happen when their banner ripped off the pole  well before the game.

No sympathy for them at all.   

As for WCE good luck to them take your cup back and celebrate it in WA we don't need you around us.

Bit early RJ?

Yep, called that one a bit early 'Jibroni'...

Thank goodness they turned it around.

Great effort by WC and a great coaching display by Simpson.

His match ups were spot on as they were last week against us...

No-one should ever lose like that. I felt for my Collingwood fans at the Harp today and gave them my condolences. 

But it had to happen, I'm sorry.

Only reason I'm happy the Eagles won. 

If Collingwood won we'd be hearing all about it from every bandwagon. The Eagles can celebrate as loud as they want in Perth.

He's a class act 'chook'...pity he has to coach Coliingwood.

Taking the time to console the cheer squad members before the game is the measure of the man.

He's (Buckley) changed, he's grown a lot, the past 12 months.   Very very noticeably.

Done a great job, in 2018.

I thought Will Schofield was terrific for the Eagles. He saved some certain goals with his desperation and I just love McGlovern.

I know what hes saying... what I'm saying is, to change a culture out, to build a fresh one,,,  a club has to cut strings with many experienced players... to change things.

Not debating that. My point was entirely around how we botched that trade. Don't give a [censored] about Howe leaving, stuff him, but we should be extracting better currency than the likes of Ben Kennedy for Howe.

Not near as bad as that runner. That had an actual impact on the result.

Great game, the best team won. A few chokers there in the last quarter but 44 blokes going toe-to-toe. 

Dom Sheeds's goal. Just wow.

A shocking game from the umps. Many head high contacts missed and a lot of dropping the ball/holding the ball interpreted as a ball up. Something has to be done about blocking in marking contests. A real blight on the game now. 

And even though I admire Collingwood under Buckley (who I loathed as a player but respect as a coach) there remains a deep seated, unspoken satisfaction that Collingwood have lost another GF.

What a beautiful thing - the filth nutted in the last moments.

Melbourne must learn from that. The weagles were jumped and trailed by 5 goals yet fought their way back - that's what premiers do.

BBO, we must grudgingly admit that Collingwood played well whilst thoroughly enjoying the style of their demise. That there was probably a block on Maynard that enabled Sheed to mark and goal, well that was poetic justice.

Beautiful work by that umpire.

Demonland, think of us Western Demon supporters, why can't all Eagle supporters stay in Victoria for the next 12 months?

I had my office covered in Eagles crap this week. It time for others to suffer the Eagle victory.

or put out a contract on him.

Have just seen the footage of Buckley consoling the runner in the rooms.

 Had not realised it was Alex Woodward, the poor bloke who had done heaps of knees before and after being drafted by the Hawks. This would be worse by far.

Feel for Pies but thrilled Howe didn’t win a flag. Or Eddie. 

I have a lot of time for Buckley. I like him a hell of a lot more as a coach than I did a player.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
