Too many smiling Dees players after final siren.

If you were earning as much as they are, with no repercussion, you would too! Haha ☹️

Between both of your suggestions, we have a perfect club and we're ready for a tilt at the flag! I'm excited!

Not really sure you can blame the coach for the players ability to [censored] it up so often.

They are generating the opportunities so not really sure you can lay all of the blame with the coach

All their goals came at the top of the goal square pretty much. 

I can’t recall one difficult set shot they nailed.

That’s a coaching thing.

Lyon, Jakovich, Schwarz, Farmer, Neitz.

Oh for the days when we had guns around goal.

Sad and embarrassing.

Not playing Preuss to at least crash some packs and halve a few contests was criminal.

Goodwin. Doubts doubts doubts.

It's time that we reveal the worst kept secret in the world. TMac is injured and cannot compete.

Other teams know this now and just run off him. Preuss, Keilty, T.Smith... anyone would be better right now.

I'm glad that Goodwin didn't give up like I did earlier in the year, but it's time. Get the injured players rested. Reset for next year

We are the worst 'professional' sporting club in Australia,  if not the world.

An embarrassment to the city, and to the game.

 

Rubbish. Besides, there's a team in Swaziland that's very, very bad.

All about next season now, we have the rest of the season and the off season to fix this problem of not being able to kick scores.

Gotta play guys like Dunkley, Lockhart and Preuss and try a few different things.

" We knew if we could break even on the inside we'd get them on the outside"

As ever... Been the case for a fair while. St Kilda this year and last year, Essendon etc etc

 

This is coaching

The whole f****** comp knows this. Every coach at every club ... even the players! ... know this. Except at one club.

Fast becoming irrelevant and a laughing stock...once again!

We can kiss 2020 off also IF...

-  The list isn't culled severely; 

-  We dont pick up a genuine KF, a small goal kicking crumber and a classy outside runner (with crazy pace) who can finish on goal also; and

-  Goody doesn't add a possession game to our modus operandi

The lowlight was having to report a scum supporter today for abuse. No idea if anyone will follow it up, but he was drunk and abusive and of course had a small child with him, because why not continue the cycle of being a filthy piece of dog [censored]?! 

Anyway I thought our backline was good. The difference May and Lever made was immense. May was excellent. Lever got better as the game wore on. Hannan likewise. So nice to have some quality back in the side. 

Gawn was superb was always. Grundy can clean his shoelaces as far as I’m concerned. A superb midfielder and leader. 

Our contested work was good, but as has been the case all year, we have no purpose using the ball going forward of Centre. I don’t know what the game plan is, but it’s failing. Chaos ball is dead. 

Speaking of dead, Tom McDonald’s career... what has happened? I would give him the rest of the year off and pop Preuss at FF. How much worse can it get?!!

6.13 to 12.3 after quarter time.

I'm giving Goodwin until round 8 next year. Can't see him surviving mich beyond this year after two of three years missing finals.

This year was a failure after the Saint games. 

He appears to have lost the players. Today was a sad sight.

I agree, I think we should be in full 2020 mode. Even if we try a few things and fail, we can't do much worse than we already have. We might even learn some things for next year! And we can do it with no risk.

The misery continues to be inflicted onto its suffering supporter base 55 yrs strong!

20+ yr member & completely guttered on how this club finds a way over the cliff after tasting some success. Have witnessed this so many times late 80s, mid 90s, & 2000s. 

Is it culture, development, game plan, just fed up watching garbage play!

In no quarter did we kick more goals than points. after half time the pies kicked 9.0.

We have no forward presence and no idea of where or how to deliver into the scoring zone..

Preuss up forward would be great. He's tall, he presents, and he'll crash and bash, perfect.

Also really dug Lever, May out back. Maxxy was 20 feet tall out there.

Sorry about your neighbours out there, it's a real shame. The cycle is the worst bit.

You have to feel positive about the fact that we can get the ball. But we cannot use it. The utter disrespect that Goodwin shows the wings at the MCG is embarrassing and makes him look like a moron.

Nobody cares that we smash them in clearances because they know nobody on the outside can do anything with it.

Shat me too. Gawn is the reigning All Australian ruckman. Gawn absolutely destroyed Grundy today. Gawn is the number 1 ranked player in the league at the moment according to afl website. The media should give him the respect he deserves as the unarguable and official premier ruckman in the league.

    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

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    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

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
