POST GAME: Rd 06 vs Richmond

Recommended Posts

We looked likely in the first quarter. 

After that - abysmal.

It was only for the first quarter after that we were outrun, out-tackled, out-worked and we have managed to kick 13 goals in 2 matches. Not much of an improvement that I can see.

Well... at least we did it for a quarter this week...

Carey and Ling talking up the Tigers for the Premiership now. Ummm....they were playing Melbourne.

I'm not surprised.  Ling was salivating over the Tigers all night.

I want a royal commission into our club. Wtf has happened, I mean seriously?!!!

Players that aren't up to it: Jones, Lewis, Petracca, ANB, Spargo, T Mac, O Mac, weid, Brayshaw (possibly the worst decision maker on our list), Hunt, Stretch, Fritsch.

Play the kids, let's go for pick one.

You can't say that, even in jest. The AFL thought police will send you to a Gulag.

Drop Weideman and Tom McDonald. Seriously. Bring in Preuss and Keilty next week. Just to give them a go. Hunt also is gone. No footy brain.  

Hunt does a great impersonation of a headless chook though.  Very entertaining!

Really cant be stuffed TBH, much like many of our players come half time.

Hawks will beat us by 6 goals. Easily.

Night folks.

Wow.  

Pathetic execution of skills.   Pathetic.

Easily the worst team in comp at the moment.  by far. 

Well done Maxy.  Thats it.

Season over.

Some fan just interviewed on channel 7 said she feels sorry for the players, the club and the fans.  A couple more losses and we'll be back in that familiar spot of people having pity on us.  What a shame.  A middle aged woman 'feels sorry' for a bunch of young, fit, professional footballers.  Thats where we're at.

This team has never been able to handle any kind of pressure in a game. We hung in there despite showing no composure and eventually they broke it open. You could see it coming the whole time.

Brayshaw should be dropped for that effort on Riewoldt, needs to be made an example of. 

Weideman was horrific, missed the ball trying to handball it and followed it up with a smothered kick. Finally took a good mark then can't hit a 15 meter kick.

Fritsch has regressed badly, a liability even within this pathetic team.

Hibberd can't hit a target to save himself.

There is no passion in the team, Viney gets cleaned up by a 1st year player with a cheap hit of the line, then Petracca has a chance to make him earn it and puts no body on him a minute later.

Some players need to take payouts or get out, we are the worst team in the comp. 

Trac is a bit soft (would like to be a bit harder than soft) like Fritta, Weid and Hunt. All forwards. Throw in Garlett also. Tigers just brushed them aside and jogged away from them without being touched. Pathetic.

Can you please change your name to Petraccattacksomtimes?

More like Petraccafumble, gee whiz, our picks 2&3 are shaping up a lot like Sylvia and McLean. All promise and no delivery, tracc was a better player in his 2nd year than he is now, clearly been Melbournised.

After the first quarter, I thought - we're back! The intensity was up and we looked like we meant business. 

2nd quarter - yep, we can still do it. Players are up for this...lots of mistakes, stupid frees...toigs seem to be at the ready for every spill.

If Vlastuin played for us we might have won - we seemed to pick him out every time.

Last quarter we threw in the towel

Kent Kingsley award to Ellis.

Opp players I'd like to punch award - Costanza

In spite of all the wrist slashing I foresee, we would have won more games than we lost at this point in the season if we played with this intensity from round 1. But yeah - we're slow. Much as I love him, Jones gave the Toigs a lot of opportunities with his turnovers.

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.

Without a shadow of a doubt we are THE WORST TEAM IN THE AFL, it’s embarrassing how inept and weak minded our players are, the forward line is PATHETIC

@scarlett I think you said in the gameday thread "The jogging after they waltz through our setup hurts from certain players, it wouldnt make any difference to that play, but they could effect another contest"

I thought it was a great point and in particular the underlined. Of course it's not possible for players to be sprinting the whole time, but they fail to see more than what's in front of them or at most 1 play ahead.

It's often what happens two or three plays later that is just as important but by the time our boys realise what's happening it's too late. So they're caught behind that critical 5-10 metres or too slow to react or position for a ground ball get from a spilled marking contest. 

Sounds like we just had so many brain fades today. I seriously question the footy IQ (or IQ in general) of our team. We only know one way and can't adapt when confronted by failure. The perceived pressure rises and confidence drops

Stretch, Hore, Melksham, Smith and McDonald (actually defended well against Lynch) all hold your head up high.

Weideman can take his 650k and [censored] right off. In all seriousness, he is severely out of form. 

Fritsch just absolutely panicks down back. Leave him up forward Goody ffs!

I want to see him angry. I want to see him irrational. If I have to listen to him telling us that this isn’t our brand and that we will improve I will lose it.

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    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.

    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

    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
