Jenkins is big unit but I am sure you would have brought him down. We lost it in front of our own goal. 

Yeah you’re right. Couldn’t expect a key backman to lock down the ball / Jenkins in a tackle especially when they’re “big units”. He is pretty good JJ (didn’t see how he went in the sanfl last week but assume OK).

Supporting this club is such hard work. Is there any other that comes close? Maybe Saints or Freo.

Every Melbourne supporter knew the crows would get back into the game. We've seen it dozens (more?) of times over the years. There was a sense of inevitability about it. How is it you change the players, coaches, gameplan, ground whatever - and the MFC still manages still throw games away in heartbreaking fashion.

My dad said he stopped watching at half time, couldn't enjoy the lead we had because he knew it would get eroded and too stressful to watch the 2nd half. My wife (Geelong supporter) said she can't watch Melbourne games anymore, she was getting more upset than I was.

Fast forward to next year. We lead the Crows at three quarter time. Guess what Don Pyke says to the players........

Thank you. I have said that for weeks. The guy is scared sh-tless. Play him and you deserve to lose every week.

He must have been involved in at least 10 negative incidents tonight, any one of which if he had tried, we would have won.

I feel sorry for Weid because he should never have been in that position. He was nearly crying.

Jeffy couldn't give a flying f-ck.

 

He only had 6 possessions last week. This week he kicked a couple but it's what he misses and doesn't do that irks me. He doesn't go when it's his turn. Gee compare him to Viney or Hunt who get clobbered. I'd trade or delist him he is 2 flakey

In fact I'd get rid of JKH 2 he gets very nervous when he thinks contact is coming his way. Although strangely he loves 2 tackle. OMac either is tried as a forward or goes in2 the gym he gets ragdolled far 2 much.

Priority must be given to set shot goal kicking, Field play was much improved but set shot kicking was, as usual, a F**KING DISASTER. IF Melbourne do nothing else but practice set shot goal kicking I will find a way to believe...again...

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

 

 

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.

When you can't perform simple skills like marking unopposed and set shots from dead in front your asking to be beaten. Don't think I've ever seen a game so thrown away. Aside I don't see what playing in Darwin has to do with it.

Are you serious? Have you ever played the bloody game? He is a squib of the highest order. His gutless play must drive his team mates mad. It certainly does to nearly every Dees fan I know.

So if a bloke gets 3 Joe the Gooses and pulls out of every contest, you think he has played well. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah I have played and at MFC  U19 and at Ammos over 10 years and in Premierships.

I'll tell you this, Yep Jeffy has his limitations but he did some good things tonight unlike others who did not!

the club has never has goal kicking accuracy as a priority. How do I know this? a) we have been terrible for some time. b) petracca is played forward  c) Fritsch is played in defence. d) gawn rests forward. 

There is NO POINT playing ANYONE in the forward line unless they are good kicks for goal. it's pretty simple.

oscar McDonald is an easy target. we all know he is a vfl reserves level defender. everyone except the coaching staff.

Big hearted Captains but they never get the prize. Viney always tries to get away with that little bit more when it is on the line when we need cool heads. Coach should have said to Jones. Go to Betts and shut him down anyway you can.

Besides our own disgraceful kicking for goal, don't forget the bad luck we are continually having.

Can't get a free in front of goal ever.

Multiple injured players unlike the opposition each week.

Lose Salem and Hore just before the game.

With them in it would be fair to say we win.

It's a real puzzle to me this problem of multi generational failure . It really seems like a curse . Different coaches players , management , they just can't fight this rancid malaise that has condemned us to so much misery for so long .

My recollection of OMAC - gave away some cheap frees early.  Got caught in places he couldn’t compete for the ball too many times.  Couldn’t stick tackles.  Got run off too easily - the crows would get 10-20 m separation way too often in 1:1 contests.  Some cheap distribution kicks, but should be called spinach - he wilted with any heat.  I think he knows May is on his way in, and Frost has more value than OMAC atm.

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!!!

Yes, even down to saying, Viney and co will get late possessions bullock to get free, spray the kick so just get in position and wait for it.

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th
