Saw many games with Neita  and  the OOOOOOZ ! Neita would kick his 3 to 5 goals and have his 2 to 3 goal assists on many occasions and you could rely on him to be involved. He just knew where the goals were being a confident kick even from 50 metres out.Come to think of it how often he would kick a goal from  set shots. IMO he played his best games on the forward line

. Adem Yze a dangerous Half forward wingman type but loved a goal and kicked many in his time a reliable kick at that.However not     overly quick but would bob up when the going was tough and make his presence felt.  Would never had thought that they played so many games together.

We could do with them both right now. Two Great Melbourne people. They were my best years.

Brad Green and Cameron Bruce would have to be up there too. Debuted in same year. Green played 254 games for the Demons and Bruce 224.Both didn't miss too many games through injury or suspension.

When Lever and May get to 100 we will have won at least one premiership.

I'd take consistently (or every second year) making finals over the dribble we've been served up for a decade. 

But yes one premiership please. Then I can shut this site down and retire.

If a Melbourne player did that today they would get a ten week rest via the tribunal. If Ablett did it, it would be considered the greatest play of all time and there would be a parade in the streets in honor of the great man.

PS and the demon player who he cleaned up would get rubbed out for staging.

Surely you've been working on a succession plan.

Weird that Neitz/Yze is #1, then in the top 5 are also White/Yze and White/Robertson, but the Neitz/White combo isn’t up there. Struggling to get my head around that. Assume it’s buried in the ... part of the list, in which case it doesn’t really give you much indication about where TMac/Jones actually rank in the list.

I find this figure funny because the all-time record holders, Andrew McLeod and Tyson Edwards, frick'n HATE eachother.

Here's a bonus funny quirk -

Of current player the record holders for most games together are Kade Simpson & Marc Murphy. They are also the ONLY two one-club players in the top 30 list for 'most teammates' over their career. Obviously, all the others have the extra teammates from being at more than one club. But seriously, churn Calrton churn churn churn.

Oooh, full of quirks today -

When Nathan Jones retires, obviously that ends the run with Tom McDonald. But immediately upon that happening, our club's longest run of being teammates will go to Tom McDonald and our other captain.

Aaaaand of our young guns who might end up player out a career together...

Christian Petracca and Clayon oliver have played together for every game bar one of the last three years, and in their mutual debut season of 2016 they played 9 together out of totals of 13 (oliver) and 17 (Petracca.

So, Oliver has only played without Petracca in 5 out of 73 games. While Petracca has only missed being with Oliver in 9 out of 76 games.

Future record breakers, just needs another ten years.

Yze was predominantly a backman from about 2002 onwards.

Do you want me to sit there all day and write you a book on Yze or were you being sarcastic?  DERR!!!! 

What would you like to catch me out on?  Better player playing HF and kicking goals. This is not a nit picking session,   PLEASE ...

    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

    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
