POST GAME: Rd 06 vs Richmond

Recommended Posts

Over 50 inside 50s for 1 goal since quarter time is not acceptable for any line coach. Watching the tigers jog out time and time again with little to no pressure is not acceptable. Obviously Rooke is not up for it. Needs to be moved on.

Richmond has laid 20 more tackles than the Demons, despite winning 30 more disposals. When broken into zones, the Tigers have laid 19 more tackles in their forward half, and lead forward 50 tackles 17 to three.

 

We are the worst team in the comp, bar none.

Shocking. Need lead up forwards. It’s like we went into this game trying to keep them to as least amount of goals and not even bother about scoring ourselves. Doesn’t look to be no quick fix.

Sorry Olisik, but i think most need to be shown the door.

Forward line very ineffective, team wide defense is absent and our mids refuse to run both ways.

Bring in new coaches with fresh ideas and Goodwin needs to change his coaching style............to something reminiscent of being half decent

Goody needs to get an explanation from the umpires boss on the massive inconsistencies between how we are umpired compared to the opposition every week. It is ridiculous.

We can’t score for the life of us. Every inside 50 entry is just spoiled or intercept marked. I’ve never seen teams be able to just transition the ball from their defensive 50 easier than when they play against us. 

We have overrated our team. No avenue to goal, no defensive running and never play man on man. Teams just kick around uncontestedly for the most parts of the game and then kick into their inside 50 with ease. Season over. Play some kids and try to unearth talent for next year. Hopefully May and lever are back and injury free for next year.

Serious question. Does anyone think there’s going to be some changes in the football dept in the coming weeks, or even in the next week? Something needs to happen.

I agree but tonight’s game I put on our forward line. Defensive line held its own for majority of the match, midfield did OK, forward line has gone to the tip and every player who plays there (TMac, Weid, Petracca, Spargo ect).

There’s a million things wrong but right now I want to focus my rage on Hunt. Probably unfair to single him out, but I will say this - he’s an athlete but not a footballer.

This is the only viable explanation for the complete lack of run, fight and execution of basic skills. We're the worst team in the league. I am dreading playing the roos.

Can we start up the trade board yet? 

Any decent out side mids going too 3 in the draft?

At least goody tried something different tonight and our defence was better. 

Our forward line is still dysfunctional and our mids still don’t run hard enough both ways. 

The tigers do move the ball forward really well and run and spread hard all 4 quarters. Maybe it’s something we can learn from.

After the first term it was a horribly frustrating game to watch.  The dew played a bit of a factor, but we fumbled more than I've ever seen from a Melbourne team.  That comes from a lack of confidence and, as the game wore on, the perceived pressure from the Tigers.  They just kept at us all night and wore us down until we simply couldn't handle it.

The way we used the ball going forward was probably the most disappointing aspect.  We controlled parts of the game but rushed our kicks forward which allowed Grimes and Vlastuin to pick it off at will.  It doesn't help that Weideman is waaaay out of form and Smith is not really a tall forward.  I thought early our pressure down there was okay, but it's hard to keep it in there when they're marking it uncontested.  Garlett and Hunt didn't have any impact, Petracca had one or two good moments and Melky didn't really play down there.  It was tough to watch.

On the flip side, I thought the way we set up defensively was pretty good and we weathered the storm for most of the night until the dam wall broke in the last.  

I thought Stretch played really well and took his chance.  Hibberd did a pretty good job on Dusty, while I thought Frost and Tom Mac drew even with Lynch and Riewoldt.  I thought Hore was pretty good again across half back too.  Outside of that, there isn't much to write home about.

I was also impressed to see Goody make some changes to kick off the game, even if they didn't make a difference all night.  It shows he is willing to mix things up a little, and he made some changes to the gameplan.  But with no confidence and a night that made our skills look even more deplorable, we were always ice skating up a hill.

But it's on to next week.  Keep your chin up, Demonlanders.  Footy stinks at the moment, but there is always next week.  I'm already looking forward to it.

It is clear that this club stood still over summer. Absolute indictment on every individual involved. Goodwin and co. brought this upon themselves.

This could be worse than the Neeld years by the end of 2019. I really hope not, but any positivity looks a million miles away.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football
