Thank you SWYL.  I've had a few (too many) Heathcote Shiraz.  My sarcasm meter is a bit numb!

This club will send anyone to drink!

You write it as if it's a negative. I'd slip it into the club marketing strategy as well as a list of best 'coping' wines, scotches and beers..

We had the handball to petracca's feet which he fumbled, cost certain goal, harmed dropping a mark 40m he should have taken, tmac's pie drop 10m out. They missed easy goals we were too [censored] to even use the opportunity to score! The Hannan switch to no one...

horrible horrible effort.

Yep there were so many the main one that stood out was the Hannan one. 

Doesnt matter what the game plan is or what the coach does on game day if we can’t hit a [censored] target on the field. 

Skills is under 8’s stuff.

Some of these players need to learn 'footy smarts'. So many times they make wrong decisions. Example; take a strong mark and then play on without weighing up the options, handpassing to a team mate who is already covered and under pressure, etc. Result, turn over, turn over.  And for goodness sake why not have a shot at goal if you are within striking distance instead of lobbing it over to no one or the opposition. Take a chance! Take the game on!

Thought the same thing BBO. It's a thread in itself. Best drink to turn to when Melbourne utterly crushes your spirit.

Our list isn't dreadful it's just lacking a little quality around the edges. Just 1 good small forward and a hard runner on the wing would make a huge difference.

Goodwin was the same coached who improved us 3 years in a row but nice story about him being another Neeld.

Agree with your ins, also add one small defender willing to stay down and crumb, rather than trying to go up for a mark or punch!

Sorry, 36 tackles is an appalling effort! 

No team is competitive let alone win with that sort of non-pressure and let the op have easy ball. 

He/she was taking the pizz Luci.........

Forward line tackles

Weiderman: 0

Petracca: 0

Tmac: 1

Hunt: 1

Hannan: 1

Smith: 1

Total of 4 tackles (average 1 per Quarter) in our forwardline today. Absolutely pathetic forward pressure. No wonder every team just prances out of our attacking 50.

The main reason is we only have about 10-14 contributors every week.

This week our best 3 of that lot were overwhelmed by Zorko and Neale. The rest lost confidence after Tmacs dropped mark.

If we elevated the best at Casey each week and dropped consistent non-performers, Wied, Hannan Petty for example it would make shouldering the load easier.

The coaching sucks because they insist on constant blooding dropkicks and ignoring JKH, Lewis and Pruess.

This team is truly schizophrenic.

Even with so few winners on the day and a disfunctional forward line, they were there abouts for two and a half quarters.

They desperately need some outside ball users. Brayshaw, Hunt, Baker and Hibberd, et al are not cutting it.

was hoping to see some clear improvements in this six week stretch but we went backwards today due to an outdated gameplan.

Was hoping otherwise with some strengths returning but you are absolutely correct. So readable ...so inefficient - even when on a roll.

Jetta will be that player. Might take him a while to be trained to stay down and trust his team mates but when you have Steven May next to you it's a lot easier to learn that. 

The whole backline is a mess right now because they are changing roles and uncertain of each other. 

If we can get at least 4 of Jetta, Lever, May, Frost and Hibberd settled for more than a few weeks things will improve.

I agree dee-tox instead of handballing into the ground at the feet of our team mates we need someone that is prepared to run with the ball and hit up targets, it was so bad I was wondering how are they going to mess this up when we were totally in the clear and yet we still stuffed it up.......................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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

    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
