"Someone should tell Goodwin that Ryder is 12 centimetres shorter than Gawn and is 14-15 kilograms lighter. Oh, and there’s the small fact that he was playing with a fractured cheekbone.

Obviously Gawn and Melbourne couldn’t handle a few tiny midfielders in Karl Amon, Steven Motlop and 18-year-old first-year player Connor Rozee bumping him off the ball.

Port captain Tom Jonas also had his way with Gawn dropping him off the ball. Michael Christian, the AFL’s Match Review Officer, dealt with Jonas accordingly and fined him $2,000 for the incident.

Jonas has no regrets and said he would do it again.

Rather than whinging to the AFL on the back of a shock loss, Melbourne, Gawn and Goodwin should take a leaf out of Port’s book and step up.

There was nothing illegal about these tactics and it’s what has made our game great for so long.

The Demons need to take responsibility for their own performance or they could be waiting another 55 years to taste premiership success."

This is an overreaction by Cornes. Expect another 55 year premiership drought because our coach sought clarification from the AFL...right

We all know Kane deliberately goes about trying to be the most hyperbolic media personality but he's not entirely wrong.

I didn't mind the tactic, Max should have been better and the midfielders needed to stand up for their man. That said, preventing the designated ruckman from reaching the ruck contest as they did 5 or 6 times is meant to be a free kick.

I reckon he's right and wrong. its been an embarrassing week for the club all round. Goody did get outcoached. the only thing Cornes is wrong about is saying that Port did nothing illegal, which is not right, as you cant drop blokes off the ball like Jonas did, that's why he got fined 2k.

And now has stoopid platform on SEN's website. Which like 3aw and other stations put some articles upon their site masquerading as a real article, written by a real journalist.

Click bait, pure and simple and of no value. 

Of even less value are 'articles' hat some underpaid flunkee knocks together summarising some stoopid opinion or view one of their presenters have banged on about. SEN'site is full of it. RSN have bucked the trend somewhat by hiring Matt Stewart (a real live journalist - and a good one at that - who the Hun saw fit to sack) to write articles about racing

What is frustrating is when one of these fluff pieces gets picked up by another media outlet and discussed. The opposite of a virtuous cycle.

Cornsy  you jumped on   Ports   band wagon and are good at doing something like that to make up and be liked again by the bogans that follow them. Winging does not agree with our club however the dirty tactics when striking someone to the ground or running into them when not looking is a low act.

Jonas was better off getting his  $2000 worth  by striking Gawn to the stomach with a hard clench fist. These days you can hurt a player and be more likely fined.                                                                                                                                                                                                     No winging just frustrated with our performance and after round one too.  .Cornsy Please! don't jump on our band wagon again.

Oh! and Port haven't made finals

Our blokes didnt give a whimper. Nothing at all wrong with what Cornes said.

You won't win a pressure final by betting knocked around by an 18yr old kid.

I look at the results of other high finishers from last year, and hope our pitiful performance was something to do with where we are in our training program, due to aiming at being at our peak for finals.

Hey Kane, did you write an article to criticize any of these?

 Geelong coach Chris Scott seeks clarity on deliberate rule after tough calls in wet conditions – 2016

 …While Longmire chastised the umpires' boss in their first phone call last Saturday after the round-two clash for not making the effort to meet him in Sydney before round one, both parties agreed the talks on Tuesday had ultimately proved productive – 2017

 AFL umpiring boss Jeff Gieschen says Collingwood's blocking and sheparding tactics are entirely within the rules. ... Fremantle coach Mark Harvey said on Wednesday he would seek clarification from the umpiring department – 2010

 WESTERN Bulldogs are expected to write to the AFL for clarification after ... Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson went through vision of umpiring – 2018

 Eade this week called the whistleblowers to seek clarification on two free kicks ... and got some clarificationaround some rules can have a benefit – 2017

 Gold Coast coach Guy McKenna will speak to the AFL umpires coach about what he perceives as roughhouse tactics used to curtail Gary Ablett – 2014

 … In particular, Kane, what was your stand on the following request?

 PORT Adelaide lead ruckman Patrick Ryder is being tested by new blocking tactics the Power wants clarified by the AFL umpiring ...  to get some clarification around a few rules,” said Port Adelaide forwards coach Brendon Lade - 2018

Yes, and lets pass by on this. Cornes needs traction in the media and has developed this persona as differentiation. If we don't discuss him he's back to the fire brigade.

I can't stand Cornes, he is an absolute idiot of the highest order. 

Which is why its so painful to say he is absolutely on the money here. For all our contested ball winning "bulls" not a single bloke flew the flag for Gawn and people here should be far more concerned with that than they currently are. It is simply disgraceful that we didn't fight back for Gawny, there really is no excuse. 

Ugh, time for a shower.

It was disappointing that team mates didn’t back up Gawn on the field, but i don’t see asking clarification from Umpires as whinging. 

You are a cheap footy Journalist Cane, what happened to your Fire Brigade Career?

Rubbed a few people up the wrong way?

Agree 100%

How on earth does a team supposedly overflowing with tough, hard at it types, allow their main weapon to be knocked around for an entire game, with not a single retaliatory action in his defence?

Maybe our so-called team of young bulls are still weaners?

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
