GAMEDAY: Rd 03 vs Essendon

Recommended Posts

We are crap and for someone to comment on who we should drop i.e Jones ,Anb and to bring in Preuss. Eat your words. It is time to get rid of fan favs. Preuss, Petty and Keilty are a must. Wagner bros a w.o.t .

I disagree with the middle.  We no longer control it when either of Viney or Jones go through there.  They are turtle paced and just end up giving a handball to a player under even more pressure as a result.

The minute neither of them play through there we start looking more mobile.

Clarry's also had a very ordinary night by his standards.

What I'm saying is our centre clearance structures are not functioning like last year... Max has been worked out, ans is not playing effectively.

We aren't getting clean ball out of the middle at ball ups.

Our backs and Mids push to far forward when we have it, and them we cough it up,  and it comes back thru empty space... as they run thru space.   Scoring at will.

 

Goody and the match committee have to change things quickly,  before this becomes a disaster...  which in turn means we have to change our personnel/types,  into the team.We brought in some runners and we need rot change our structures and setups.

Our zone is hurting us, on rebound.

Over officiating is killing the game. Rapidly losing interest all together.

You only have to look as far as AFLW to see how contrived the FIXture is to ensure $$$$$ and that means favourable outcomes for the teams that have huge membership! We played a game tonight that would have resulted in a win if there were no umpires! If you or any supporter can't see that... you probably think corruption can only exist overseas

At the same time, how blessed are we to have a Friday night game??? We aren’t even the first game of the round. You can’t say that we have a commercial benefit when the game isn’t the first of the week. 

Again yes, from the media to the organization itself....corruption is rampant

Averaging 114 points against this season.

That is bottom of the ladder caliber.

Mr Goodwin & All Players

You need to take a good mother f***ing hard look at yourselves.

Disgusting, disgraceful, absolutely embarrassing for our club.

When °Nev Jetta gets smashed front on, play on no free kick and then some of the BS that Essendon scored goals off?

That's absolute rubish.

And some of the crap they scored from.  FFS.

AFL lift your game.

With the draw we’ve got this could really be a painful year, I think we’ve reached a ceiling with certain players and our quality aren’t coming to fore. Tom McDonald is better than what he’s showing, I think it’s a combination of poor delivery to him and low confidence but him getting his confidence back is important. 

Meanwhile our defence is a rabble, no one takes defensive marks and that’s the big difference. Lever is massively missed right now because right now all the defenders are doing/can do is unconvincing fists. 

I think we’re heading for bottom 6 this year, the draw we’ve got is very difficult and it would’ve been tough if we were on song. Now it’s going to ensure a year of pain. 

I hate to say it but the positive is that looking forward to 2020 (yes I’m becoming one of those people) we will have a favourable draw.

The umpires combined paralysis at paying Demon players hard earn protection = free kicks, should be exposed and researched as fondly as some so called journos spew up the Tanking headlines!!! (as if half the comp weren't doing same)

I have officially hit the panic button! 

 

Not panicking BUT. even if we change our shape,  with quicker running players...  our main drivers and leaders are all hurt,  in the feet. 

 

TMC has lost a yard of speed, and also endurance,  and IMO is on limited Klms training thru the week.

Viney is slower by foot.

And Jones as well. with age.  not his fault.

Our skilled players like Hannan are not available. and we are relying on petracca who is a slow as the tortoise.

 

Bright lights are Lockhart, CWagner, Oli, Melk, Harmes,

 

I'm concerned that are main drivers are playing sore in the feet...  can't run properly.   Last years foot injuries are going to really hurt us.   I just wonder !!!

3 games we can do it fron here.

We can R(b)G... but we must change structure,, discard this full press, and come back to a rolling  press.

... or all the way to traditional old footy, might be too much for us atmo.

If he makes a comment he will be fined. What is spoken behind closed doors would be greatly different. Agreed good teams can overcome [censored] umpiring but to think they didn’t have an influence is very naive

Not looking good for this season. Give us another 4 weeks and if we are still zero points we might as well look forward to an early draft pick and look to next year.

Well this was the first game where both sides scored over 100 points. 6-6-6 will stay, we just need to learn how to exploit it

good to see hunt back in form ( love what he can bring) , Fritsch stepping up and trac in bursts but they were the only things I liked. Umpires were horrible... especially in the last qtr. viney can’t seem to keep his feet, prob injured, . Tmac clearly carrying an injury. Backline zone  set up... a monumental fail. How did we go so far backwards in this so fast? It’s going to be a long shitful year I’m afraid. Nothing like the season being done by round 3... just like the old days.

    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

    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
