I have watched the last 2 mins over and over and over in the last hour. Jayden Hunt was a massive part of our get out of jail win first winning the ball and getting it out to the runner in Hore and then going full bore at a 50-50 contest to setup the Harmes possession. Hats off to you Jayden my good man!

This was definitely not a game the majority of AFL fans would enjoy so let’s just strip back some of the mayonnaise on that theory. It was a HARD watch for 90% of the game even as a neutral, I was a great finish though. The last 2 minutes more exciting than most of the game. In terms of a hard fought game with intensity it was great but that’s about it. 

Clayton Oliver absolutely immense, you think he’s having a reasonable game and then in the second half he just goes into hyperdrive! Melksham in the middle! Makes a big difference having that kicking ability and some hard running, hopefully not too hurt. Salem’s name comes up each week and is turning into our best. T-Mac is taking steps in the right direction.

Plenty of under performers but most of them stood up when the game was there to be won.

I just want to give a shoutout to the crowd on Melb fans behind the goals when Tommy hit the post. Making the trip up there and being right up close to the winning play and going nuts when we scored, that was just amazing. You guys are the true heroes tonight!

Get in!

Tom McDonald being called the “star of the show” by Mooney is laughable.

He was deplorable along with just about everyone else.

What a horrible game of football.

Our coaches have done nothing to fix our fumble and ball on ground problems from last year.

The forward line is a mess, the structure is non-existent and we have no plan when then ball hits the ground.

So. Us the game in the end and you choose to bag him. Laughable.

Well your initial thoughts were right, no free kick would have been given had he not held him, he let him breeze past him with zero body contact and then turned to chase. 

 

If we played man on man your assessment would be right, but watch the whole match and you’ll find very rarely the player will break neck run with the player after he is on the mark. Omac made mistakes, but this one was a bigger mistake by Oliver than the whipping boy

Oli could have bumped that player, but the point remains that OMc's player got away,  and created overlap,  and then ran on to goal...  OMc still trotting thru the middle.

Even IF Oli had of checked that player,  the ball was still past them,  and was on its way toward goal.

 

It was OMc that either should have been on his player,  shoulder to shoulder,  Or ahead of the play to defend.

So I disagree with you,  M_M...   I think what I posted was the correct thing to do.  & OMc stuffed up.

Ugly game of footy, but a win's a win.

Oliver = freak.

Marty Hore - take a bow son. What a find he's been for us given our depleted backline. 

TMac finding some form, but F me, I wish he could hold a mark like he used to. Made a meal of it in the dying seconds but thankfully the footy gods were on our side for once.

My grumbles about today's game aside (most certainly exacerbated by having to put the family dog to sleep today - a loyal friend for over 15 years), it was a pretty crazy finish to the game. Doesn't matter who you're playing, it's nuts that we scored twice in 50 seconds, and I'm happy that this finally happened in our favour, rather than against. A pleasant change.

Sorry to hear that RBM.  Gut wrenching time ✌🏼

Also, check in Slo-Mo,  roll back and forth,  between 1:20_  thru to 1: 37 secs... 

OMac allows his man to run thru to receive,  and OMc's standing still until his man has 10 Mtrs on him...  that is Holman,  who ends up kicking the goal, that puts THEM in front...  Omac asleep as usual.

IMO,  Omac should have left his man at that stage (prior to his man offering the offensive option),  and gone to the wing in front of stoppage, ahead of Jones, edge of the square.  Or switch with Jones on the mark, letting Jones be spare defender.... 

Instead OMac strolls thru the middle of the ground,  as his opponent streams forward with ball in hand...  and goals.   this would normally be end of game for us.

Ah Turbo Mc Treacle... Why would you doubt the everlasting consistency of his performance??

Harmes looking to be unselfish almost cost us as Tmac dropped the simple mark but thankfully got enough on it to get a score

I reckon it was a mis-kick. I've watched it a couple of times now. Nevertheless, error riddled moments with the kick and mark but we get the win. Go Dees!

Well, in the end, it was either a win or a draw... and TMc delivered.

The ugliest win I can remember. Brayshaw terrible, Trac continues to disappoint...our skills have vanished but we are alive and have another week to find our touch (although Lewis I fear has lost his for all time).

TMAC 3 goals and the winning point he is starting to show form.

Not with that dropped mark he's not, it was an absolute soda. Harmes put it right down his throat, no defender on him & Tommy dropped it like a hot spud. Lucky he got a boot to it.

When/if Tommy starts holding his grabs he will start to show some form.

I did a hammy and put my back out celebrating after TMac booted the point. Oliver was massive, I wonder if sometimes though if he’d be better off copping a tackle and creating a stoppage as opposed to handballing without looking. A few today went straight to Gold Coast players who got the ball out into space.

For decades, I've seen teams like Hawthorn and the Swans play like rubbish in games like this and then snatch a win, often from us. Now , we're doing it. Good.

Trouble is they were top line premiership/contender teams.

At the moment we're nowhere near that & we're not doing what they were.

We're scrapping out wins against other average/bottom rung teams.

...but it beats losing.

So which of you good things paid the umpire... Hunt was gone for all money for HTB, the GC  fan club (Bruce by himself) was outraged.

Our ugliest win in 2016 (against the Suns at the G) led to our best win for the year (Hawks) the week after.

Ugly wins can often lead to bigger and better things.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
