POSTGAME: Rd 12 vs Collingwood

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 human 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?!!

Goody will most likely ensure it does by soldiering on with more the same.

Something to look forward to!

Breathtaking incompetence. Disgraceful performance on such an important day. Big Maxxy excepted - he was immense and showed he is the best in the business.

Positives for me were our backline actually played well. Our midfielders were too dam lazy to give them a chop out. Lever, May, Hore Hibberd and even Fritsch all played extremely well.

It is officially time to take the captaincy off both Jones and Viney. Jones is Finished and Viney is an ordinary footballer. Max Gawn to me has captain material written all over him with Lever to take over afterwards. Be done with it and just give him the AA honours. Definitely has the best and fairest sewn up.

That'll be Wagner's last game in the red and blue. Will be delisted. Should have brought in Stretch.

Worse game i have ever seen Salem play. 

McDonald can [censored] off to Casey. Get Pruess in and get him rotating with Gawn up forward.

At least we'll have a top 5 draft pick.

Once again, we win all the stats but are useless going forward. 

Your gameplan is junk Goodwin

Wake up Fool....

Sick of it...

Neale Daniher had to sit and watch that rubbish....

what rot, goodwin is not responsible for our poor kicking and turnovers. we had virtually the same number of shots for goal as the pies, it is not his fault that our players cannot kick a goal, hit a target by foot or by hand.  the players are the ones on the field who needed to stand up and play but they did not. dropping easy chest marks, fumbling the ball, not chasing, not tacking... i doubt any of these were part of the coaches game plan. Salem had 8 turnovers, a player playing in the backline turning it over so often will result in the opposition scoring. Garlett was woeful, while spargo did some ok things he also screwed up a few things that would have made a difference. Not sure what value Wagner gave us, mcdonald was woeful, Hannan probably needed another week in the VFL to get some match fitness rather than playing. Angus's disposal efficiency was down and both of our captains did not provide a lot of assistance.So not sure how the coach can cop all the blame given the above.

Huge question marks over Goodwin.

Same problems week in week out, structure is a mess which is a huge contributing factor to skills being so poor.

It also annoyed the [censored] out of me when they said Grundy was the starting AA ruckman and Gawn was on the bench

Goodness me A) Get your facts right, and B) WATCH THE GAME IN FRONT OF YOU!

When I watch the game I try to block my ears because the commentators talk so much drivel now.

We have to start  trying these things right?

We are not making finals , so time to experiment.

Thought Maxy deserved a paragraph of his own. He is simply immense. He’s playing as a genuine midfielder now without giving up any of his other strengths. If we were winning he’d be being lauded as the best player in the game on current form.

The big bloke should not have to wear the responsibilities of the team - even when he can and does. An amazing champion, deserves the Captaincy - and some support.

Even better, bottom 4 is generous.

If the Blues beat the dogs, and the Suns beat the Saints next week (both very possible)...

We'll be dead last.

TMac is too slow ATM to play back, he would be worse off. I agree with may forward. Thats where he starred as a junior.

Goodwin is a poor coach, he always has been, but blaming him for our loses is bullsh*t. Goodwin isn't to blame for Salem turning the ball over all day, Viney declining, McDonald being a spud, and our mids not delivering the ball effectively into 50 (its not like Goodwin hasn't spoken of it).

Completely agree.

It's not even that we aren't playing finals.  Why during the game does Goodwin not throw the magnets around and swap Tmac and May?  Does he not understand that you have to kick a higher score than the opposition to win?  Tmac is a complete and utter liability up forward.  Best game of the year for him was against Richmond when he played down back.  Throw the bloody magnets around during the game Goodwin and stop being so passive! It's infuriating!

2nd that!  Jeffy's done guys.  Can't catch anyone unless theyre next door and misses half his tackles.  Has no strength through body or for the contest anymore and is running on talent alone.

Lockhart has earned a call up after yesterday's solid performance.

Put weeds at full forward and may at centre half forward.  Pruess in a forward pocket to ensure weeds does not have all the big men on him. put tom back into the backline so that he can get some form back. time for jeffy to go back to the VFL, his failure to take a kick 35m out shows the lack of confidence. Hannan and spargo back to the vfl next week to get some form. only one should come back in against freo.

Also it was good to see Weideman work his way into the game 2nd half. 50 more games and couple of pre seasons and he'll be cluncking more of those pack marks that he is jumping at.

Frost went off in the first quarter with concussion and Salem was injured in the same incident. I'm not sure he was right for the rest of the game either. He didn't play his usual game and he had a heavy bandage around his head. Concussion as well??

    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

    ORWELLIAN by Whispering Jack

    Please permit me to begin this rather tragic pathetic preview of Melbourne’s forthcoming game against Fremantle with some personal reflections.   Two years ago, we had visitors staying with us who are all sports fans so we arranged tickets for the entire family for the Melbourne vs Fremantle game at the MCG. The Dockers were struggling at the time while the Demons were on the up and up so I was fairly confident about the outcome. Naturally, we all left the ground bitterly disappointed.

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world.

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir
