&*^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.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z
