The coaches have to take responsibility for this rabble surely. There is something deeply wrong.

It's the coaches' fault for dropping chest marks or not being able to hit someone with a handpass 2 metres away?

His one decent game for the year at Casey.

I'd rate it a tad higher than decent, but on that performance, if he follows up next week and doesn't get a game after the bye there'll only be one question left to ask.

Petracca has been good, even very good. If others were able to take advantage of his work, would look even better.

Pies supporter,  Isn't he.?

Smashing them in clearances, contested and uncontested ball, and...turnovers.

We are playing in second gear and shockingly down on confidence.

There is a distinctive lack of confidence in the game plan.

Goodwin has until maybe round 8 next year to prove his worth. Can't see him lasting beyond that if things that drastically change.

He's probably been our best player today.

 

Again, probably our best today.

He's been sure with his hands, taken good options and is our only forward that give the opposition 2nd thoughts.

He's played at what I would call the benchmark level for an AFL player for a half of footy. As have about 6 others.

Great. Certainly not cartwheel-worthy.

Spargo has more possessions than the other two put together, plus a goal, but heh ... Spargo is the worst.

The workings of the human mind are a wonder to behold.

Trade Petracca, I know we need mids but I’d take a key fwd.

Trac is the only one showing some energy and intent. Can’t understand the negativity towards him. TMac is the one that makes my blood boil, along with many others.

that was horrible

skills - cooked

Garlett - cooked

Spargo - cooked

Lever - not a knock on him but maybe and extra week in the 2s would’ve been good

No nerves today cos I have zero expectations; they are the second best side in the competition and we are the third worst 

Just hoping we look better and play to 2018 level...

...just can’t see it happening for us today

Bring on a few draught beers, a look at Lever 'n May, maybe a donut or two - life's good.

We show no care for the footy. Dump handballs, long bombs, dropping absolute sitters. I’m tearing my hair out watching this [censored].

They haven’t put us away yet, we are barely hanging on but still in the game. Trac has been a beast so far. Almost our best, he’s working extremely hard. We need more of that work rate from others.

Get the midfield of GAwn, Harmes, Clariie and Gus together and tell them to let rip.

Confidence is a bid thing !!!

Would this help at all?

Braydon Preuss 1 goal 3 behinds 13 kicks 6 handballs 19 disposals 6 marks 6 tackles 40 hit outs 140 dream team points

Yeh, I'm usually pretty quick to give the benefit or the doubt when it comes to team selection... But this sucks. All summer long they're spruiking the Gawn/Preuss combo. McDonald has been giving us nothing all year long. Preuss shows something at every limited opportunity his given. Why is he not out there? I don't understand it.

Why if he is so good, he cant play in the centre? .I prefer Brayshaw, Harmes and Clarry so far. They have the tank to play in the middle. Not fit enough, me thinks. look forward to your votes.

We've kicked 3 goals.

Trac has one and responsible for another.

Please yourself...

Unfortunately the club culture has been busted since Norm smith left (and probably before).  We should have kept Roos and Jackson around to see the culture really evolve.  As it is we went for a bloke to run the club in Pert who tests the culture in all the wrong ways and we have a coaching staff that’s weaker than last year.  All bad decisions but the MFC is outstanding at making those.  We are reaping the benefits of those decisions now.  Send them to Tassie and put Melbourne out of its misery.  

Thanks  'Kingy'.

    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

    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
