He never should've let Jenkins get goalside of him.

And once he did he never should have let Jenkins get a kick off when he had him in a full body tackle.

Weak as pisswater

I’m afraid so. I tend to look at the positives, and have thought Oscar too often has been unfairly targeted.  Tonight,  though he was not up to it, his net effect was negative.

Oscar has done me in. Spargo was terrible.

Off the top of my head the Saints game at Docklands, both Cats games last year, tonight - we almost did the same against the Subs a few weeks back. I know there's more but I'm not going back into the memory bank of pain, those are just the ones I can remember without even trying.

I reckon it's 9 games in 2.5 years where we have clearly been the better team but have found a way to lose (10 if we include GC this year where we did everything to throw it away).

In all the below games we have had more (or at worst) equal scoring shots, in some case significantly more scoring shots.

That's almost 1 in 5 H&A games that we are throwing away with poor finishing.

I thought we had fixed it after beating WCE late last year and then the finals, but this season it's back to how it was.

For so long we waited to have a competitive side - now we've got a pretty good one but they keep on snatching losses in quite extraordinary fashion.

2019

GC 8.13 v 9.6 (won this one)

WCE 9.15 v 13.7

Adel 12.16 v 14.6

2018

Geelong 13.16 v 14.13

Port 9.11 v 11.9

Geelong 14.14 v 16.4

Sydney 10.18 v 13.9

2017

Geelong 13.19 v 20.6

Fremantle 15.15 v 16.10

North 10.12 v 11.10

The beers were going down so well at half time, yet once again the MFC have managed to slip another rohypnol into my drink and my life I’m general.

That's the problem though. They did on the most part play well. They should have won. But it's just so often. Even last year, Geelong by 2, port Adelaide, Sydney,  we were the better side in all games and lost and it cost us a top 4 spot and possibly a flag? Not once did we really steal a game where we just hung around and got over the top late.

Tonight just continues the theme, we may dominate, but it doesn't mean we'll get the chocolates!

the W.C effort & tonight are better efforts, but if you lose when you shouldn't, there is still something NQR!

Seriously. Weak as [censored] - Weiderman, Garlett, Hunt, Smith and Max Gawn. Soft as butter in front of goal. Call it as it is. Weiderman wants $650k a year! He plays football. That’s all he does FFS. For all you apologists, all I see are crocodile tears after the game. If I was Goodwin, I would tear the shreds off them.

I was out tonight so was able to flick through the first quarter and got to just before half time without getting hopes up (yep even if we were 40 points up at half time i would still not believe we were a certainty given the last 48 years) and then saw this message from mum.....

"What a bummer they had that won !!! Very disappointing! Xxx"

Initially I was disappointed but then figured mum just saved me an hour of watching what sounds like more of the same MFC crappola!

I said before the game this was a very winnable game but not when playing the likes of Spargo, Jeffy and Fritsch (continuing to be played in defence....well done again Mr G).

Looks like we can now add Omac.to that list with all the fall out here.  And Tom is so far out of form.  Did a few good things in the first but no goals again!  Might not recover?

Trade a stack of the NQRs for Cameron, a super silky outsider and a genuine small forward.  Although even that might not save us from ourselves.  We are our own worst enemy and have been for an eternity.

In addition, why the hec are the boys getting kicking lessons from one of the worst kicks ever in Todd?  Any other AFL club would be bringing in the best at it like Plugger, Piggy or The King!  Instead we use the worst ....laughable.  As was some of the slack lax zoning BS with virtually no pressure in our forward half when the Crows were bringing the ball out of our square from a score.  Witches hats and made it too easy to launch inside 50 under very little pressure far too often.

As i said after the St Kilda match, Goody has no idea and continues to persist with this nonsense ballistic method for an entire match which is just not plausible.  Add to this a no pressure zone in our forward half, far too many NQRs that continue to be gifted games (Omac, Jeffy, JKH & Spargo) and you have a recipe for disaster.

How far up were we at half time?  Without watching the second half I'm betting at virtually no stage did we try to slow play with possession, control the game and eat up the clock.  Am i correct?

Goodwin should at least fake a really fed up and disappointed persona at the press conference. He can apologise to the team straight after.

They lost their best player at quarter time (Sloane) and played one short in that heat & humidity and come right over the top of us. Wow!

Yes, the Smith & Weideman misses were horrible, but the defensive efforts of Wagner when he slid in and took the legs of two Melbourne players out and left Betts free to run into goal, the weakest effort by JKH that I’ve seen in a long, long time when he sh#!t himself and fell over which allowed Jenkins to run past him and handball for a goal, plus nearly everything that Oscar did were more horrific. 

I also can’t believe the drop off of Tom MacDonald!!!

 

Jkh was pushed both hands square in the back by Jenkins. That's why he lost his feet.

 Correct.

 

and the failure to defend their kick ins was deplorable and is purely a coaching failure. It wasn’t the players. It was the way we set up and that’s instructions from the box

if you look at it clinically, JKH had a real shocker tonight. I;'ve though he could play a bit but his efforts, his skills, lack of reading of the play were all terrible. falling to ground against Jenkins deep in defence cost us a goal no-one would cough up. I knew that would hurt us badly.

He's had too many chances.

25 up at 1/2and really that was flattering to Adelaide. We dominated the 3rd but actually had the margin reduced to 16. We kicked the first of the last. 

Really we didn't try to slow things, but honestly I think Adelaide looked more dangerous when they went slow!! The picked holes in us, when they went quick, apart from iMac onn Jenkins, they didn't really look like breaking through regularly!

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    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! 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.

    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?

    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

    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.

    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.
