Hore - tried but loose

May - a welcome addition 

Lever - glad he survived 

Fritsch - lost in battle 

Salem - probably suffering concussion 

Frost - a major loss

Hibberd - past his best

Baker - stunned by headlights

Harmes - gave his all

Petracca - seemingly without purpose 

Hannan - had little involvement 

Weideman - hardly gave yelp

Spargo - couldn’t justify selection

Bit harsh on Braysahw and Hore. We looked a lot more purposeful with Max, Clarrie, Gus and Harmesy around the ball.

It was a better blend this week against a tough side. Viney disappoints - limited options in his game now.

Hard on Wiedeman.    can be excused until we learn to kick accurately or to space. In the mean time he continues to learn his craft the hard way.Mc Donald on the other hand needs a rest or spell at Casey.

Another disgraceful effort by you JoeBoy - makes me wonder if you actually ever go to the game.

Fritsch - best game 2019

Brayshaw - shades of 2018

Harmes - our prime mover

Petracca - another step forward

Weid - finally showing something

Salem : Got sore head

Petracca : Strong at ground level

Garlett, Spargo : Too many fumbles

Harmes : Strong Competitive midfielder

Brayshaw : Attacking Inside Mid

Brayshaw : Tighten disposal

Team : Only kick to space /Make them run into kick

Hannan : Learn right foot

Gawn : Great Great Great

Hore : Find of Season

Lever : Settled and survived

May : Showed good promise

Frost : Missed him (did not think I would ever say this)

Oscar Mc : Cannot be blamed this week

Clarrie : Three more blinks per disposal = massive improvement to side

I thought Harmes was good, and tried hard!

Weid was much better, and looked more confident. He'll get better, especially once he starts getting some better delivery

Trac was much better in the midfield.

Fritter was decent. I think he provides much better value up at half forward.

Weid was our best forward.

Tmac should go back to Casey against Freo - he’s not going to find the form at this level. He’s had 12 weeks.

I’m not 100% convinced he’s injured. Has not once alluded to it in interviews and has continuously talked about his form issues and ways to try and get out of his slump.

I think Petracca will be traded especially if Dunkley comes on.

Both he and the Weid DO NOT lead to ball carriers. Both drop back and oppo just cut us off to often.

Petracca was good today...the only one who didn't fumble & looked poised with ball in hand.

Looking at our forward line today and most of the season,  l reckon there are a lot in the queue ahead of him. Probably all the forwards actually.

In a decent side with a properly functioning forward line l think he would go ok.

Problem is, he should be taking leaps and bounds, not steps. He started well, but I felt went missing for long periods in the game.

He is. What an indictment!

Hunt for me is a back flanker every day of the week and twice on Sundays. We miss his run and carry greatly.

Do we? For the most part our midfield and backline performed admirably yesterday. There was some skill errors coming out of the back 50 but that was attributable to collingwoods pressure and besides God knows Hunt isn't going to help with skill.

If we are going to have a pure defencive forward like ANB was last year I think Hunt is a good choice. At least he has genuine pace.

    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

    AINT THAT A CRYING SHAME by The Oracle

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan
