Random thought - has Buddy ever kicked a bag against us?  I cant remember him ever kicking more than 3 or 4 goals.

I know his record against us is 15-0 thanks to Fox mentioning it twenty times this week.

He's kicked 6 once...5 and 4 a few times

I don't think we've played him with such a weak leaking defence yet. Fun times ahead.

Problem will be...try and take him away from the game will just open it up for others. 

Not enough wallpaper to cover all the cracks.

Don't forget the laugh as well..........wtf

On a lighter note, both these boys in our backline will be well aware of what they are playing for tonight.

I have three tickets to the game tonight spare after a family illness.

They are located in Section 3 of the O'Reilly Stand, Row X, Seats 54, 55, 56. We will be sitting in Seats 52 and 53.

This is a great location at the SCG to watch football.

If anyone wants them at half price ($35) then please send me a direct message today and we can arrange to meet at Gate F tonight or I can send them to your mobile number.

best wishes

To have any hope we need t o try something different. If Frost or OMac play on Franklin where going to get flogged. For mine start Max at CHF; Preuss to the ruck and TMac on Buddy. It might not work but will guarantee if we start with a predictable line up we will get hammered.

Just on my way to Sydney, let’s hope our season turns around tonight.

On my way too.

Why, I have no idea.

Will our 2 bookends in the Mac  brothers find some form for the first tim e this year?

Will those senior players who have been out of sorts come good?

Will Weid revela his finals form of last year?

Perhaps a miracle will occur and we finally beat the swans.

Like all Dees supporters we are back to hoping against hope. Again.

Well at least tonight we wont have the constant momentum killer in ANB butchering the absolute basics of the game.... I don't know what to expect tonight after "circling up"- One things for sure Sydney have been pretty bad at home the last two seasons... They haven't looked great this year either, hell if we were blessed with playing the blues in the first 3 rounds we too would have a win on the board... I'll say we will win, but with zero confidence at all.

Now people are saying tmac should go back to the backline. I don't agree but maybe he should be rested tonite. Buddy would have a field day on him. I hate to say it but Frost is our only hope. He has played alright on him before and this would almost be like a last chance. If we lose tonite and omac and frost dish out more of this seasons rubbish then straight out of the side.

As an aside, it is most interesting that the media (such as Fox and Channel 7) are now talking-up the Swans and their key player strengths against the 'now famous' and endemically weak MFC backline. 'Leaky' and 'disinterested' are words heard in these descriptions, or read in other media articles. This is groundswell. The MFC have been media-anointed and the general public just expect the Swans to roll onto the field for an automated victory tonight. So, the AFL will be turnstile happy; the umpires will be primed; the MFC will be restricted from doing almost anything correctly via errant rule interpretations, interruptions to the game plans and the old syndrome, 'you cannot do that against Sydney...' 

It would be terribly satisfying if none of these concerns appeared or occurred at those critical game moments of which we are all familiar. What are the chances that a level playing field in such regards was enforced? We all know the answer: None!

Onfield, we have some lines that are very near being the best in the whole League. Have we lost this match against the Swans before we even step onto the ground?

Splendidly nice gesture - a sign of a commitment to great teamwork on DL. I hope that someone can take up the offer you have made.

    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

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
