Heartbreaking stuff.

Unbelievably hard to explain to the boys.

All the very best wishes to the family.

You never get over this stuff. Ever.

I would want the world to end if I lost my wife.

 

Thoughts are with Brad, his kids, and family.

No, no, no. This is terrible. So young and with two little boys. Sincere condolences to Brad, his family, his wife's family and their friends.

May God look upon Brad and his two boys. They would  surely have plenty of support and hope the MFC start some sort of fund to help them in the hour of need.  God Bless.

Cardiac arrest according to news.com

Still so sad about this. I would not survive if I lost my mum or my partner. My heart breaks for those kids and for Brad.

I saw this yesterday on Brad’s Instagram and have found myself thinking about it multiple times over the past 24 hours. What an absolute tragedy, been recently married myself I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to lose your wife let alone the mother of your children on top of that. 

Really puts life into perspective, a bad day at work, stuck in traffic, the small minute things that we get caught up on in our day to day lives really mean nothing. Let alone a lot of us getting caught up on the current state of our football side, it’s sad it takes tragedies like this to realise what is really important in life.

I am sure the club will get around Brad & his family and provide the support needed 

Great post. 

Heartfelt condolences  to him and his family.

Absolute gem of a bloke.

I met Brad 5-6 times and he was such a great bloke. Friendly. Smiling. He stood up despite the Demons dark years. 

I am sad for Brad, his boys and Family and friends for their loss.  Such a tragic loss.  It’s heartbreaking.  MFC must ensure he is supported now and watch over him.

Others have said it. Perspectives are altered. I hope Brad has support that he will need,

As a Melbourne player he earnt our applause. He gave us so much enjoyment we can surely provide him with any comfort he desires. 

This is an event that can define the club, I hope we can meet the challenge.

Anna and I have a mutual friend. The complications from her eye surgery is extremely rare. It occurs in 0.9% of cases and to varying degrees. Sadly in Anna’s case it was the most extreme degree.

I had exactly the same surgical procedure in January and I vaguely remember the surgeon discussing this sort of complication but as it was an emergency situation and the alternative was to lose my vision, I put this complication in the back of my mind and went ahead and had the surgery with no complications- thank God.

Rest assured the MFC community will rally around Brad and their young family. I feel so sad for everyone involved. 🙏😓

So glad your surgery went well.  All the best.

Maybe a blood clot that went to her brain/heart. I'm only assuming its something along those lines as it was reported she passed from cardiac arrest.

@jane02 would know more.  It really sucks, thats for sue.

It's a terrible tragedy and a reminder that all forms of surgery have some risk. Let's keep that in mind given how many times our footballers (in fact, most footballers) go under the knife during their careers.

So very sorry for Brad & his families.

I've been stuck for words, stunned.  I didn't even recall Green'y was married...  and kids as well.

Just ah, what a loss.  

I don't know how anyone can... It would be tough to even carry on.  

I guess, the purpose in this is the Kids,   that/they gives one the strength,  to maintain momentum.

Very moving to see Brad's two little boys run out with the team.  He looked very proud.  Undoubtedly, their Mum also was.

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition

    AINT THAT A CRYING SHAME by The Oracle

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan
