POSTGAME: Rd 14 vs Fremantle

Recommended Posts

Well done Frosty. Keep sticking it up the haters & the doubters.  Played on their talls as well as Walters at various times and was terrific.  Doubtless, the haters will only focus on the 2 mistakes instead of the 10 positives.

Was interesting to see May barking at the players in the back 50 and setting them up from all standing bunched together.

Just need to focus on the younger players and hope like hell they learn to settle and calmly hit their target.

Noticed that, who does he think he is Jordan Lewis ?

But that is the value of experience, because Lever is only 70 games approx and some people expect him to be the backline guru

Frosty was great. Can we please move Frisch forward, his disposal is still a worry down back,

Agree on both.

Frost's last quarter arguably won us the game.

From the top of the ponsford I had a great view of his intercept mark in the last. Made the decision early and backed himself in, then made the next kick. Critical contest as we scored a terrific gogoa l after to tacking it down the ground. 

I want fritter kicking the ball to out forwards.

Petty was excellent and May played well. Marty hore was solid again.

Jones should still be ashamed for that 50 metre penalty. I just watched it a couple of times

shocking to do that

The turn-around in form from a handful who have been down was good.  Lockhart and May were very good.  The desperation was good.  Flying the flag for team-mates was very good.  Hope next week is good!

Didn't mean to put a downer on it for you guys who watch for the wins in pointless games in failed seasons. Enjoy it.

Just my opinion that we were fortunate with their injuries. Obviously a win is a good outcome.

It’s just pathetic that it’s your first and only response to a win. You deserved the whack you got for it.

Yeah, we were fortunate they were two down. Thanks Captain Obvious. Doesn’t mean we absolutely would’ve lost without it. So what you said isn’t even true.

Fritsch has gotta stay wing/forward, he had some ripper kicks inside 50 today (whilst also acknowledging some average ones).

Just plain dumb by a captain who should know better. Walters was always going to go down like he had been shot.

Yep, we have lost plenty due to injury during a game. I have no problem enjoying this result.

One of our biggest weaknesses is on field leadership and organization. We got Lever and May not only for their footballing ability, but because they’re leaders and generals. Great to see May organizing troops and playing well again today. He’ll be a huge asset for the backline for the next few years. Love him!

Petracca had a great game today. Really got involved and threw his weight around. Great to see him switched on for longer periods and staying involved. Hopefully this is the start of his return to damaging form.

It's the story of the year.

Leading the inside 50's and not kicking enough score to win.

Maybe this is the resurgence with Viney, TMac and Weed doing well

Just of late, Petracca seems to have developed a footy IQ. I've been negative about him for a little while now but there are small signs in regards to getting into the right spot, making smart decisions and not trying to do too much in possession.

12 point turnaround 

Not what a captain should do. 

Do it after the goal is scored at least!!

Feels good to have a win.

Goes to show that when players such as Viney and McDonald play to their potential we look a much better side.

Forward line looked much better, with a bit more space and good movement.

Dumb and all as it was...

It was better than the first game against Port where we stood by and watched Max cop it from them without a whimper.

At least we had some passion in the game and Jones was supporting a teammate.

If I had my choice I would take this.

    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.

    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
