Legit the most pathetic bit of footy media on any channel at the moment. Which is saying a lot. 

Roaming Brian should be renamed [censored] Brian because he has no idea how to conduct interviews or what to ask players. He cut off Glen Bartlet last night who actually was saying some interesting stuff about membership targets, so he can talk to Josh Mahoneys kid. I mean seriously!

Yeah its terrible.  Its cool to see in the rooms and hear from all the players and coaches after the win though, but BT is the worst.

I know I'm in the minority, but I quite enjoy his few minutes of nonsense in the rooms!

Brilliant - I like the roaming BT segment. Gives some good insights into what the players do after the game and some good light hearted Q&A.  It also has a nervous air that Roaming BT will say or do something highly inappropriate which adds to the experience. 

On a side note, Bruce Mcevaney annoys me to no end. He offers no insight or understanding of the game and simply fawns over players based on their reputation and not on how they are playing or what is actually happening.

He just walked past me in an Elsternwick car park. Has lost a fair bit of weight.

If having to put up with Brian as part of winning I am absolutely happy to include this each week.

Really makes him think he is important but behind the responses there is s good deal of banter some sort of unbelievable mirth and also true footy cliches. Oh and just a hint of information for us fans!

Seems more set up now than in the beginning when he was actually roaming looking for someone free to talk to. He actually knew to seek out Marty Hore and where he would be.

As long as he's not forcing bathwater down their throats I say lighten up and enjoy it.

To be honest I prefer Roaming Brian, where he is intentionally being a tool for a bit of light hearted entertainment, to Commentary Brian, where his toolery interferes with the actual call.

I agree completely.

I watched a replay of the final against Geelong a couple of weeks back and he was calling Angus Agnes.

 Segment should be renamed "tool in the sheds"

When I have to watch 7 I either watch it with no sound or have a radio station for sound. There is a lot to be said for no sound. It is like watching a game live, you don't get commentary at the ground why do we need it at home?

Yeah.....not so good sometimes, but I enjoy seeing some players trying to hide from him. What a laugh! They are probably embarrassed as well. By the way, glad to see Marty Hore's parents were able to find the rooms! Don't worry Marty, if they can't find the rooms at the MCG, us girls will look after you!

I like the sound of the game. Just feels weird watching it in silence. If you could have the sound of the crowd, and the footy hitting the boots, and bodies hitting each other, and the players calling out to each other, without these imbeciles yabbering over the top of it, that would be perfect for me.

Watching the TV with the radio on doesn’t work for me. They’re always out of sync and it drives me spare.

Yes your last point is a good one. But seriously do prefer Bruce and Brian to the sweet sound of silence? I wonder if anyone has done a trial of a telecast sports game without commentary but sounds of the crowd etc?

Yes!

I simply say "Gush"... Def: to speak effusively or with exaggerated enthusiasm

Makes me sick!

Ditto for me.  Best solution is to turn the volume down low so you can easily ignore the actual words the commentators say.  Just use them as augmenting the crowd noise (which they already fake at matches were there are few supporters of one side).

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th
