Brayshaw gets a load of football... but how many rushed, pointless bomb-around-the-body kicks has he done tonight that have been to no advantage or straight turnovers. 

Im getting sick of seeing it... I understand the hundred handballs are tough with Tiger pressure but what about wide spread instead of 0.5m handballs to stationary teammates...

The fumbles tonight as well. FMD, what happened to “getting back to the basics.”  Watched the half time drill of picking it up off the deck, translated to nothing during game time.

Goodwin needs to go for the win here.

Put Mcdonald forward.

Here's a stat...first four goals from 8 inside 50's. We have scored one goal from the next 23.

No one at CHF or higher to take the relief contested mark!!   Playing Weid is like playing a man down.  T-mac experiment over until he gets some resemblence of his 2018 form back.  Running at about 40% of that output/quality right now.

Time to bring Keilty in

The tigers have been garbage, but at least they kick goals more than once in a million forward 50 entries. We're lucky that we are not 100 points down, we would be against a side playing well. TMac is so horribly out of form, he can't take a trick anywhere on the ground. That moment where he tried to run off his opponent was hard to watch.

 it is winnable but given the poor way we have been playing it would really take some effort to get up from here. just no one up forward standing up, the tigers are tearing us apart from defence and our players cannot take a mark cannot chase and cannot tackle. I think weidermans kick to jones sums up our night. even when there is no pressure our players cannot do it right.

Stretch has been really good.  13 touches, 7 of them contested, and he's generally made good decisions.  Hopefully, like others have mentioned, he gets a good run at it from here.

...and Viney burned him that Q...

Cost us 2 goals the skipper.

Needs to learn what team is...

That bloke wearing number 31 should go and hide in the stands. Has none of Barassi's courage AT ALL. The softest player I have seen in many years. You can throw the Weid in that mix. I said earlier we need our best players playing at their best and the others putting in honest efforts.  Some are but boy are some just going through the motions.

Time for these guys to stand up in last quarter. PLEASE.

Fritz is playing like he doesn't want to have the ball in his hands. He hands it off straight away to whoever is near him. Doesn't matter if it's a Melbourne player under pressure or a Richmond player or the ground. He doesn't take ownership of the ball and look for the best option. What's going on with that?

Send him forward

Put Weide deep...  bring jSmith up to the flank or wing...  to play between the Wing and the F50.

We need to mark the ball around the middle to calm us down from overusing it.

Hogan got more touches and score in one game then May and Weiderman combined over the last 3 weeks.

There is a serious lack of belief out there. We all know our players can hit a Target and can pick up the ball. We watched it for a season.

I can see the Tiggers blowing this out in the last.

Shame as they dont deserve a percentage booster.

Our boys have chased tail all night.

With not much left in the legs, this could get very ugly in the last and the Toiges can smell blood.

Basic skill errors and no brains has killed us all night.

It is sad how quickly we have become a rabble drinking our own bathwater.😪

McDonald has to go forward this quarter... no point trying to reduce a loss

McDonald can't catch the ball in defence what makes you think he can do it forward...

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    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
