All VFL standard footballers. Some may get there but right now there is a lot of battlers above.

A good team has to carry some players and that’s where role players can shine. Usually it’s only when 3 or 4 of the above get a game.  No team however can carry a dozen fringe players like we are and can expect to compete.

Unfortunately when the heat was on today, GWS looked faster, tougher and hell of a lot more skilful than our mob. 

There cue was well and truly in the rack for the last and I take nothing from that.

Even with all the effort in the world you need some skill across the group and there is so many in that team who have minimal

We are terrible in every part of the ground except the 5m radius in which Gawn is standing.

Oliver emerged standing over a GWS player after Billy Stretch goal

GWS remonstrated and Toby Green punched Oliver to face - looked worthy of 1 week 

Oliver may be in trouble also

from 2008 to 2014 my general rule of thumb was 'opposition doesn't crack 100 points that's sorta kinda a little bit almost but not quite a win, right?'

that's almost a win today

tally ho dees!

I prefer the Brendan Bolton school of thought, if you only count the last quarter we won that game easily.

Scoreline completely flattered us due to last 15 mins when Giants had put the cue in the rack.

Up there with some of the worst quarters ive seen for a long time.

Skill errors aside (which single handily cost us 9 goals) - the complete lack of confidence/trust etc is mind boggling. What teh hell has happened to this team from last year?

Something isnt right.

From a Prelim  to the worst team in the comp. From the highest scoring team to the lowest.  All in one preseason.

A pathetic club.

Cheers siren 

Rock bottom. Very poor games from: TMac, Jones, Viney, OMac, Fritsch, Spargo, Lockhardt, Oliver, Harmes. Where the hell was Preuss, for starters. Why does our team play 'bombs' when there is so much space to target going forward? Wasted year, wasted game, wasted membership, wasted coaching efforts.

They had 2 on the bench in the last. 

Kicking 7 goals in a dead quarter doesn’t change the result and if Goodwin uses it as a positive he is treating us all like fools.

We are hopeless. 

I take nothing out of the last quarter especially when gws were already on the plane home. 

When the heat was on our cupboard was bare.

Dear Mr. Goodwin, what are you doing?

Tell us what is really going on Goodwin...

Fair dinkum -- if he comes out and says what a great last half / quarter etc we had, showed signs etc then I may well return my membership and not renew it until we get a coach with balls.

"our brand" blah blah blah  .... unfortunately our brand is weak uncontested footy with not even the flair we occasionally showed last year to make up for abysmal inability to convert I 50s.

We've all heard about "coach killing" games... well we just saw a "fan killing" game.

There was not one positive from that game

We didn’t and we also can’t as we have traded the last two and that’s the limit set by the AFL. We have to use our first round pick... on a slow unskilled inside mid. Thems the rules.

Job is on the line. I don’t care about a 4 year contract. 

A Coach has to be able to do the job...

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world. Lewis and

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,
