If he plays like he did in the finals, then Jesse will be a distant memory.

Big futuregir Sam

Love his commitment skills awareness of Team responsibility and faith in the Club.

Big year for Sam 35/50 goals.

Like any Dees fan will never forget that Elim Final and the super performance from all and Sam's bog.

Breakout last few games in 2018.

Interesting. I was thinking of Steven May as Hogan's 'replacement', as he was the main part of the trade deal. I had expected the Weid to continue his improvement in the seniors regardless of who he played alongside.

Vs Geelong last year:

12 Kicks, 12 handballs, 7 marks, 3 goals, 4 tackles...

He's going to be a gun...

I'm really hoping for a forward line of TMac, Weid and Hunt next year.

I think that was just about my favourite piece of footage all year.

Lol at some of the comments in the clip. Some never miss a chance to pay out on Ablett. I do like the one about looking for a cheapie over the top rather than providing a shepherd for Danger.

Scary to think what Weid may become.

Bub, don't you remember that bloke with the bad body language who used to play in the forward line.

No, not the blonde haired guy, the other one.

Fantastic moment in a huge game.  Well done Sam.

The surfy skulks away and the bald has-been tries but fails for a cheap shot.

A pivotal moment for the game, the team and the individual.  GO WEEDS (would never have thought, 50 years ago, that I would ever ever say that)

Just prior to that he tried to get the easy ball then he tries and fails with a cheap shot.

still a lot to work on but the signs are good.

It sums up where Geelong are at, and what the inclusion on Ablett has done to their team.

There's two ways of looking at Ablett in that clip.  The first being that he was really in the perfect position for the "cheap" one over the top, but Danger was too slow to acknowledge it, and tried to do too much.  Had he (Danger) got the hands over to Ablett, he was in a world of space.  But, it was Danger's immediate response to do the individual thing that saw him get crunched.

That said, had Ablett put that shepherd on, Danger was also in a world of space (he would've blown Nibbler away).  Ablett's selfishness cost them as well.

While a lot of what happened on the night can be put down to us just dominating the Cats from the first second, that passage of play goes right to the core of what's wrong with Geelong in general.  It's bloody marvellous.

Back on topic, Sammy's just a nice boy who can play bloody good footy.  My love for him grows by the minute.

A great night indeed SWYL. A crowd of 90,000 with at least 60,000 Dees fans in attendance.

I honestly think there were more Dees than that. After the siren and after the song had been sung twice there were only about three small chunks taken out of the crowd.

Yes. We can be a big powerful Club again with sustainable Hard Work

to see the MCG full making so much noise that night was a beautiful thing and we should strive to be there every year

It is our home 🏠

No doubt we're starting to mobilise but we're a hell of along way off being a power club.
That game was 12yrs of pent up frustration released and we were all there to blow the roof of our own dung heap right off.

Yep. And a lot of them were not Members, but the opportunity is there, with hard work. 

If 40,000 rolled up we would be in trouble, but that didn’t happen

I’m going to be very unpopular here and say i’m not convinced.

He is good at ground level but in the air I don’t see it.

Even in that final the marks he took fell to him and he didn’t take them cleanly.

i’m hoping it’s a strength thing and he proves me wrong with a greater upper body.

    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
