Well it was nice to sit on the train not full of severe depression. 

You can say that again, and after so many beatings we have beaten the Hawks again. May the sequence of 2 continue.

harmes was [email protected] I'm sorry but giving away 2 50m penalties is 2 goals we dont get back. it doesn't make up for how good he was other than that.

and melksham? wtf was he thinking? I'm so sick of full time afl players having no clue what to do in in clutch situations Blind freddy could see that he either had to find a short target or kick it to the goal line. almost cost us the game. I hope a coach gives him a slap on the chops for that stupidity.

Yes he did give two away but it's a [censored] confusing rule and the second on was marginal at best.

However, other than that, he was our best. Without his positive contributions we lose.

O’Meara was running amok until Harmes went onto him and shut him down (7 touches after 1/4 time) while dominating the game himself. Very odd comment.

Harmes plays best in a tagging role. Why we ever stopped giving him those run with roles I don’t know. First real assignment of the year and he has his best game of the year. Coincidence? I think not.

Clarkson is showing signs of being a sore lose.  Blunt Clarkson

About the Dees: 

"They'll be dancing from the rooftops tonight – but they didn't play outstanding footy, either, today.

"A really good side would have really hurt Melbourne with some of the opportunities we had today – and that's the disappointing part," he said.

"We couldn't sit there and say, 'Melbourne's pressure was just enormous and that's what stopped us from dropping marks and missing kicks and that sort of stuff'.

All that may be true but poor form from Clarkson.

A few reflections 

18.51 minutes of "highlights" overstates the quality of the game

To the bloke who eventually punches  James Sicily's [censored] lights out - I will buy you a beer

Marty Hore's tackle late was GOLD

Frosty's pirourette and outside if the boot pass GOLD

Frost and Hore spoils to save the game PLATINUM

Wish we'd converted a few more of those easy set shots!!

An ugly win, but we banked the 4 points, and to make it sweeter, it was against a team that has had the wood on us for most of the last decade.  In the end, our guts and detetmination, combined with a positive mind-set, overcame (frequently) deplorable ball skills and decision making.  Very happy to take it and move on.

Rubbish comment on Harmes. Tagging jobs like his today, where he not only shuts the oppositions best player out of the game but is damaging himself, are almost worth 2x players on the park.

Rama on ABC clearly thought harmes’ 50 was rubbish 

It's a dumb rule, absolute rubbish rule.

But technically both were correct.

Listening to 3AW on the way home, they commented the second 50 by Harmes was unlucky because OMac on the mark moved to his right a fair bit albeit fairly which made Harmes look like he was encroaching. Is that what happened?

Watched replay again, not really

Omac shuffled a few metres across but Harmes was running straight through, just needed to run slightly diagonally  away and would've been fine and made it clearer he was avoiding the space

In both cases he didn't seem to be paying any attention to the rule. One is forgivable, but the second is just brain dead stuff - I won'tgo so far as to call his game [email protected] but 2 x 50s for the same thing is a problem

He also happened to kick the winning goal !!

But gee that will get the confidence back up I hope. I thought Goody giving them 4 days off was a bad idea but the break to freshen up may have helped. 

If I could say one thing that pervades this website (and it's not about you @dees189227) is we fit what the football club does to suit what   ever happens, even though these things have minimal impact really. And of course, typically to the negative.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    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,
