Recommended Posts

I just want to know what we think we are going to do with Goodwin idiotic contract extensions if these sorts of performances continue?

Hindenburg was a zeppelin.

I just removed Fritsch from my favourite players that’s how angry I am.  Cop that Bayley.

Agree, but we have been miles off all year. Teams have also worked out our stoppage work and lack of leg speed around the contest.

if that's the case hit the boundaries and for wingman to fill holes in defense. goodwin is a stubborn coach. we play like millionaires but look like unemployed Arts graduates: no promise and no real skill.

Maybe  (national draft)... but is any aggression allowed in Neo conservatism.?  silly me. of course it is...   just look at the fine print and we will find it in there somewhere.   

U Just need a magnifying Glass,  to look for it.    It'll be in there somewhere. depending on if its inline with the law of making money for the rich.

This is what happens when you have incompetence behind the wheel.

Roos and PJ needed to stay for another 2/3 years more than they did. Can’t change culture in a few years when it’s been poor for half a century (apologies to the late 80’s sides who put in).

No pride in that jumper out there. Simple as that.

Goodwin and Leadership have a lot to answer for.

Very stubborn.

What’s Goodwin doing on the bench anyway? I hate coaches being on the bench. Reeks of absolute desperation.

The only positive that I can find is that we are getting games into the new group of young players that will be needed over the next few years. To be fair- half the team playing today are just not ready for AFL yet and would not be on the ground if we did not have so many injuries. I’m referring to spargo, Baker, Lockhart, petty, wagners, etc

the only young one to step up is Marty Hoare

Petty ran out and then ran back off down to the rooms??

I would move heaven and earth to get Ben Brown. Our forwardline is an abomination alongside the rest of our team. 

Agreed Jaded. Trade out both McDonalds, bring in Brown and pick up Coniglio as free agent to rotate wing and inside.

This game plan is disgusting. The club ethos not too far off. Lick the ice-cream and get rewarded with a cold.

I watch Hore tear it up and play naturally. Goes back with the flight and eyes for the footy. This time next year he'll be like the rest of them. This game plan and style is pathetic. We want to call the MCG our own but never utilise it's full space. We don't put enough faith in the like of Oliver, Brayshaw, and Viney around the ball to then clear it out to space. Everyone in the team looks to the left or right for a shitty handball or chip kick. In doing so we constantly waste crucial seconds to get it to someone open down the field. By then, the opposition flood.

I'm over this rubbish. I'm over the coaching staff. We need a paid third-party investigation and be sure the right heads roll by the end of the season.

Today is the day I stop caring.  Totally fed up!

the club has sucked all the energy out of me and they do not deserve the loyalty of people who have stuck thick for decades.  

What a waste of membership for decades!

see yaa!!

The Real change in culture will begin when we get a home base.   and something tangible to play are hearts out for.  Not some flag...  but for feeling people. 

People who feel really sad when things aren't great...  and people who celebrate Strong,  when the teams on-song...  Not a Fabric Flag

At least we won't start next year as the highest ranked champion data team 😂

Unless you're looking at Clangers.  We're ranked #1 on that. 

And dead last for disposal efficiency.

    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

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel
