I cannot see us losing tonight   so I’m going to leave at 3/4 time

Richmond employ a ( to us ) very clever tactic called run and spread. Our catatonic scribe deciphers have yet to crack this code or understand its real harm. We were only competitive in the past

And yet we were only 2 goals down early in the last  Not saying we will win by 10 goals tonight, but the wrist slashing and hyperbole on Land of late is both ridiculous and hilarious at the same

Melbourne has the worst forward line in the AFL.

The umpires must have a line bet on and just checked the score

Haha i noticed it as well.

Sadly we just turned it over. Not even umpire help can save us

I love how they keep gushing about the Stack bump.  That's right, tried to run through a bloke running back with the flight.  So courageous.  Did so much damage that Jack's already back on the ground.

Game over. Season over. At least it was a better defensive effort tonight really does feel like we have gone back to year 2 of Roos' coaching tenure having to sacrifice all offensive to not leak goals. Really dissapointed in how this season has gone but there is just no coming back from here.

Let's give some fridge players bigger roles, ie stretch, t smith, baker, keilty, petty and see what they can offer. Start planning for 2020. 

Steven may had better be in the best [censored] shape of his life come pre season 

Backline did ok, defensive effort of the mids was pitiful.

We have gone back 5 years in the space of 6 months.

Player's have gone backwards and so have the coaches.

Heads have to roll, players' need a rocket (but not from the coaching department, as they seem to have no clue), coaching group needs fresh blood and new ideas, Goodwin needs to be held accountable, and the board needs a massive wrap over their knuckles for re-signing Goodwin way too early in the season.

Simply unacceptable.

Where do we get our own Stack?

I wish our boys would play like their jobs depended on it. If I was this garbage at my job, there is no way I'd keep my job.

Goody can talk about connection all he wants, but we don't even have the basic skills in check.

No dangerous tackle on Hibberd from Martin. Thanks umps. Then a nice elbow in the head to top it off and still nothin. 

Umps have been hopeless but that’s not why we lost.

"we will see a better performance" Goodwin said.

 

5 goals for the game, smashed physically, and 2/3 the tackles even after chasing tail all night.

 

We are Melbourne.

Pls move Misson on.  Too many fellas that should be able to burst free from congestion or opponent just have nothing at all and so easily caught.  This early in the season we should have come bursting out of the blocks running on top of the ground yet apart from Frosty we've shown nothing in this area!

I err on the side of optimism and I think you said you wouldn't panic until we were 5-0, but this is not good mate.

I've seen some Monty Python pics today, but if you can be optimistic after today.... I think there are some Black Knight pics coming your way :)

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom. That stat

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe
