Suns and Blues big chances this weekend. If both get up the Dees will be 18th by Saturday night.

Yes Matsuo I realised that last night. Another ignominious achievement. Prelim  to cellar in 12 months.

Gee I love this club.

If you believe  some of the posters  on DL, jenkins is an average player. I wish our average players kicked bags of 3 or more goals three weeks running.

A six week stint in the SANFL certainly worked for him binman, came back on a mission. Unfortunate he hurt his knee very late in the game, will miss some games now.

Jenkins is a good player and has proven ability over multiple years. Clever body on body, sound kicking action even from long range. He’s a true gorilla at 200cm. Torched us and burned Richmond last night. We could do a lot worse if he’s keen for a move.

If you believe his coach that was true...

He spent 6 weeks in the SANFL for an attitude adjustment.

The way Jenkins played last night was what you should expect from a player of his size.

He has too often played for the easy over the back goal, last night he used his size to break packs and take marks.

The one caveat, it was against a very undersized Richmond defence.

His coach never thought he was average. Playing average perhaps. But not average. So he sent him back to the 2s to find some form. which he evidently found.

Some posters used their (flawed) assessment of his ability as further evidence of how badly omac played ('let a total spud kick 2 on him!'). He then kicks 3 on Phil Davis (supported by a defence that was  not under manned) , arguably the best kpd in the game with rance out. And four more last night.

So omac was beaten by a pretty good player in good form, as evidenced by his next two games.

If it's good for Jenkins (a more proven forward commodity than T Mac) to have a spell in the magoos, then surely it's ok for T Mac to have a spell down there as well to find some much needed form.

He kicked 3 on Davis

FYI Jenkins only kicked 2 on O Mac.

100% agree. Thst is what the 2s are for.

That said i hope they give Tmac a month off to get right. He is clearly out of form, bust just as clearly carrying something

Agreed.

Ollie Wines has spent a few weeks in the twos, moreso to get his touch and fitness back.  But if is good enough for him as captain (and Hawks ex captain Roughy) it is good enough for TMac, our co-captains and every other player who is not performing over a few weeks or lacking fitness.  Season is lost.  There should be no exceptions.

No, but he didn't like the way he was playing.

That's what lets him down...I've often said he plays like a small man in a big mans body, last night he played the way he should.

It wasn't just form, it's the way he goes about it and there's an obvious change.

..by the way agree with you on Phil Davis, I'm a big fan.

A 200cm forward/ruck who has kicked nearly 300 goals going at 2 a game over a 7 year career. Name anyone comparable we’ve had at Melbourne in 20 years.

He’s not Wayne Carey but to intimate he can’t play is laughable JR.

Last night, and the previous two games.

Agree he hasn't always used his strength to advantage. Gets around the ground well though for a bit fella.

I really hope his knee is ok. It looked awful and it was made worse by the fact the game was dead. Is there any update?

OR .... before we get too fancy and la-di-dah ... maybe the real problem is simply that we're not attacking the ball hard enough?

I am somewhat amused to see Scully decline to tackle in two consecutive contests that his running ability took him to.  All the running in the world doesn't help if you squib once you get there. 

Bonus that he then had a free run and bounce through the middle and stuffed up the kick  😅

Hawthorn will be middle of the road for at least another five years so at least we an take some solace that the little plick will never play in a GF.

    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
