&*^k off mate.

 

Nah just kidding. We're a heavily depleted team with some notable under-performers on the ground, and when we have Lever, Melksham, May, Jetta and Tom MacDonald back in the team we'll enjoy a glimpse into a much more enjoyable next season.

 

(What, you mean some of you were still holding hope for this one?)

Pathetic display of composure in the second half.  

Nobody could step up and actually kick the one goal we needed.  

Played like scared little boys again when the heat was on.

Best example, Spargo hand balling to Jones early in the last.instead of taking the shot.

TMac could not get a game over Weideman next week.  That's how bad he's going.

And OMac could be replaced with a piece of s#*t on a stick for all I care.

Why waste a good stick.

 I really believe our players are soft mentally.

Our inaccuracies are a result of weak concentration and fear.

Taken you a long time to come to that conclusion.
Been mentally weak as long as I remember.

I have to say this.  Garlett is weak as [censored].  For all his speed and skill, he tries to run past contests and do a magic slight of hand tap to knock the ball clear rather than putting his body in.  He misses goals because he's more worried about being tackled than taking an extra step to line the shot up.  He dropped multiple marks tonight because he was looking for who was coming at him rather than watching the ball into his hands.  I don't care how many scores he had, he doesn't do the basics right and he's afraid of contact.  He has to go.

That was actually harder to lose than win.

But not for the experts in losing - we could write the text book on how to throw games away. How many games have we just completely thrown away in the last few years by our own doing?

That was by far the worst of them - it was absolutely ridiculous to lose that game of footy.

One of the biggest chokes I reckon I've seen

Demoralising defeat. If there was snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in the dictionary there would be a photo of us. 

MFC. The club that takes you right to the edge of the water but no drink.

25 Metres out directly in front.

Its not possible to miss that last kick. Tim Smith’s Miss was just as bad. As for Garlett’s dropped mark in the pocket. Just can’t comprehend how such basic skill errors are possible? The Demons Complete & total embarrassment in 2019......

Pathetic to throw away a lead like that. Hang your heads MacDonalds and Frost. Garlett should have kicked 5 and in true fashion squibbed some physical contact. Totally unacceptable loss.

If you continue to  play that squib Jeffy, this club deserves every loss it will have.

The sad fact is deep down we all knew this would happen because that is the club we have become .

If we dont go after a proven full forward that can kick 3 or 4 a game we are doomed.

I'm no bloody expert but mental strength for athletes comes a lot from practice and preparation.

You practice over and over and over again until there is nothing to worry about or fear.

As many have posted this year they are supposed to be professional athletes. Fmd

It reminds me of Melbourne in 2003. We looked sublime in patches but never really got going and only won 5 matches that year. Need a big forward in the trade/draft period to replace Hogan.

Presser nearest to the pin:

”Lots of improvement”, “they are a good team, Adelaide”, “No excuses”, “better connection”, “our brand of footy”,.. blah blah blah.  Vomit, spew cry

Hard team to support.  Collingwood will tear us a new one after dropping one to the dockers this week.

I had to turn if off when we were 32 points up and actually expected to lose. Saw the result and wasn’t surprised. I have no expectations with this club. 40 years of disappointment.

Are you an alias for Simon Goodwin

Looking forward to his “positive spin” and “empathy with the supporters” BS.  

How about spending all next week doing hail kicking 

Once again about 20 more inside 50s to no avail.  Just abysmal.

Stuff playing in the NT get rid of this game Melbourne.

Why?. Adelaide would have given us a hiding at the G as we can't play there. We have been OK in the NT. Get rid of Oscar and JKH and we win easily. Not to mention the pathetic effort of our forwards in last qtr. At least we get Lever, May, Salem & maybe KK for next game.

I do not want to see Oscar or JKH play for this club again. Casey rest of year thanks

Garlett dropped that mark in the pocket in the last quarter because he sensed that he might get contact he didn't & we missed an opportunity 2 get an easy goal. I am over him squibbing it. There was another time he didn't want 2 pick it up because he doesn't want contact.  I feel JKH is the same. Tim Smith missed his goal because of pressure. Weed because he got 2 close 2 the man on the mark.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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 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

    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
