AFL decide that. Club has no say.

So due to the Pies wearing black shorts for a home game the jumpers now clash? Let me see that in writing. It's never been a clash when they've been in white shorts.

Is it actually really possible to kick for goal so shythouse 5 weeks in a row, then TMac misses what would have put us within 14 points. Someone make it stop, it's absolutely doing my head in.

That miss by TMac which ended up in a Collingwood goal was the moment we lost the game. 

I love McDonald but he is an embarrassment to himself and a liability to our team right now.

The blame falls on his shoulders. To suggest otherwise is to give him a free pass he doesn’t deserve

The buck must stop somewhere.

Certainly has made some odd selection choices.

Harsh on Fritsch. Besides the 2 miss kicks he was good throughout the day

You've lost it with dropping Fritsch. One of the few in this side who can run and link up. Yeah his game has issues, disposal goes hot and cold and his defensive positioning isn't ideal , hardly a surprise for a skinny kid with very little backline experience but he's exactly the player we need more of not less. Almost any team in the comp would love to have someone like Fritsch developing in their side.

Turn over merchant

Play him on the wing...he's a nervous nelly with the hordes coming at him

See point 5.

You had T Mc but you didn't have Melksham nor the realities that beating up on bad sides has no relevance to how you perform against the good teams. We couldn't score against a top 8 side last year under round 22 against the Eagles. Took 22 weeks to get it together.

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

An embarrassment to the city, and to the game.

 

Couldn’t agree more.  I would argue the worst professional sporting club over the last 50 years globally.  Doesn’t deserve the name Melbourne

1. They're Collingwood and we're not

2. the AFL has lost control of all aspects of the game (except ejecting supporters for doing what they've done for 100+ years).

I though the same when mine was similar age.. he’s almost 4 now, the other one is almost 1.... I don’t feel good for them for what I have done. My wife “was” a bombers fan but know tells people we’re a Melb family.

What have I done to them.

Put a Dees' scarf on my little one when he was born....he's now 26 and glares at me....

Agreed. 

He won’t get sacked nor should he at the moment, but if we don’t overhaul the rest of the coaching team come year end, I would be very disappointed. 

Pert needs to flex some muscle and go hunt top assistant coaches from other clubs. Throw that extra cash we made from all those idiots who signed up as members this year!

I take it that many big wins were against lower teams but those bad sides are beating up on us now.

I'm sure they would if they could - and if he had the tank to do it regularly. He started todays game with the forwards. Moved back when Frost went down.

He barely missed a target last week. 4 clangers from 26 disposals this week. Has to improve that aspect of his game but any of a) a bit of run, spready and carry around him, b) a good CHF forward or c) a safer/slower game plan with more switching would help as well.

I know we now have a bye and will struggle to lose that, but for the rest of the season

Ins : J Walker, J Beam, J Daniels,  G Fiddich - at least their performance is reliable and they hit the spot. ( And Brad Greens boys who showed real promise today)

Out: That guy that runs around in the Red and blue jumper that drops chest marks, handballs 30cm to opponents in a worse position, can't kick straight for goal from 30 m out and who has a good old laugh and smile with the opposition after an embarrassing loss - can't think of his name....

I assume he was the clown behind us wearing a clash jumper against the Pies. Weak rubbish like that won't help us.

If you think the colour of our jumper is relevant to our form in any way, you’ve got absolutely NFI. 

For the record, Collingwood wore their clash jumper on Queen’s Birthday last year. First time I can recall either side in a Melb-Coll game wearing a clash jumper.

Currently on the way home on the Hurstbridge line and thank Christ I’m off the Mernda line given the amount of NQR Collingwood supporters.

Can I for once go to a game of [censored] football and enjoy myself. I envy Collingwood, Geelong, Richmond and Hawthorn supporters of the past!

Our backline did their best today, lever and May played their part, none of this is their fault.

The onballers won the clearances, but got ripped apart on the outside...but what’s new.

The problem is the god damn forward [censored] line!! We had enough forward entries, shots on goal etc etc!!

No one can give a decent lead. No one can take a contested mark. No one can apply forward pressure. No one can crumb. No one can kick a set shot. No one can snap a goal. Where the [censored] do I stop??

Garlett needs to be dropped and delisted ASAP. Spargo tried hard but isn’t up to it, bring Lockhart in ASAP. Tom McDonald is embarrassing to watch, drop to casey with his brother. 

I hope to hell the club starts looking at forwards at the end of this year. We need an abundance of mid/small size forwards that work their guts out and actually impact the scoreboard.

[censored] me. My Dad can suck on a microwaved can of [censored] for making me follow this mob!

I am utterly staggered that we're half way through the season and we're still seeing the 'play on at all costs and handball to a teammate under the pump' scenario every time we touch the ball. It simply has to be the coaching, and I'm absolutely sick of it.  

It is coaching - if it is not coaching - why is it played each week against all opposition and on weekly reflection does nothing to assist the Team of players to be positive in the transmission of the ball and the scoreboard - let alone be dealt with and eliminated by Coaching direction? Is it because the Coach says it must stay?

Pruess must get a game next week, [censored] to death of Wagner, Spargo getting games before him, Goodwin must stop playing favourites, and play deserving players

So you want Preuss to play the role that Spargo or Wagner plays? Just checking...

I would think that Preuss should replace Tmac.

If you don't want Spargo or Wagner to play (btw i agree and I'd add Jeffy to that list), who at Casey can we pick to do their rolls?

Well lets all be honest with ourselves.

This is the real Melbourne weve come to know and loathe. Not without reason.

GCS will win a flag b4 us.

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    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

    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

    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
