Taking the second born to his first MCG encounter today. Weather back home is perfect for chasing meter plus Murray Cod and they seem to be landed every night at Mulwala so I'm sacrificing a lot for this weekend. 

Please just make it happen...

Sorry mate, this falls under the mandatory reporting guidelines for child abuse. DCP are on their way.

Indeed Ethan. Imagine if Melbourne win and the poor child becomes a Dees supporter.  A lifetime of misery awaits.

That poor kid. Take him fishing Josh and burn everything you have that is Melbourne related.

Josh, I would think twice about your options. Fishing is so much more rewarding than following the Dees, hell eight hour days with not a bite or hit is still much more enjoyable than watching Melbourne play footy and your kid won’t hate you when he is older.

Comedy gold to start of the day here in Demonland!

Hope you guys have a great day Josh.

Up with my 3 Junior coaches today (2x G and 1x B) while mummy has a sleep in, mini me just pooped his pants so we’re off to a great start! The two oldest kids have made their omelette breakfasts and are super pumped that the big scary man may be playing and we have watched videos of him tackling McDonald and standing along side other players who all like leprechauns by comparison. Hoping for a great arvo!

Go you good things, play hard, play for the win, may the big scary man destroy a few miniature humans in the process! ❤️💙❤️💙❤️💙

Wowweee, some of the comments here are disgusting! We should be supporting our fellow Dees fans!

Josh it’s ok mate you can get help, I’m sure there is a helpline you can call for suggesting such abuse upon your youngest.

I differed from a position in La Trobe Melbourne's space science course for 12 months to earn some money at the local pig farm. That was 13 years ago.

My god I have lost some money and bragging rights over those years.

Although I do remember one year I was given 5 goals in against Collingwood for us to lose by a point on Queens birthday and then because of that result only given 3 points in later in the year and we drew. 2 boxes of Tom Scully's (because MELBOURNE were BITTER) 

Maybe I should have differed my decision to barrack for Melbourne, even thought twice about the enormous (and painful) chest tattoo. It's hard to justify "Every heart beats true" can mean anything else, can't change now.

 

What's the youngest you can get a kid tattooed in Thailand...🤔🤔🤔

The way the Doggies played. That is a team with spirit and s culture. Why can’t Melbourne play like that?

So what the heck was last week?  No clearances to speak of, and no tackles or tackle pressure.  We were so far from our ‘DNA’ as Goody would call it.  With so few changes, so was this what the coaches wanted?  Anyway, on to this week.  We need to see a return to the pressure acts that matter.  We need to slow down when in possession and make better choices by hand and foot.  This junk of just pinging the ball to players in terrible positions has to STOP.  A little craft forward of the ball would also be welcomed.

I can see Preuss spending a lot of time forward and TMAC and Weids rotating through the ruck with him.

Good luck to Dunkley on his debut.

Please win this.  I can stand another goody ‘we are doing everything to get better’ press conference.

Honestly good luck to those who head to the G today. Your a better supporter than me, I have been to just about every game in Melbourne & multiple interstate trips over my 20 odd years as a supporter. I consider myself as hard core as most but this season has me so disenchanted & disengaged, I don't really care for the result. I will have to force myself to watch on TV, I just want this season over already.

Like you JV7, have decided not to go along today. The game offers nothing in the context of this dismal season other than confirmation of our mediocrity.

Will head back for a bigger challenge in a few weeks perhaps.

If we beat an undermanned Carlton I do not want to see the OTT euphoria from coaches that followed the 4 wins so far against mediocre teams. 

We have achieved nothing.  We are 4/11. There is work to be done.   Respect and pride to be restored from the games to come.  If we win, yes be happy but the OTT celebrations are out of step with our performances.

When do we find out whether Max is out and Preuss is in?

Not announced obviously, but he's told people he can barely walk as of Saturday so you can pretty much lock it in he won't be playing.

It was pretty much confirmed for me when he went off last week but I just wanted to know when a late change has to be announced/confirmed.

Just boarding at Scumbury. 

In an attempt to raise my morbid spirit, I gave myself a jolly good flogging before leaving The Manor

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    FRENZY by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date. The flogging the team received at the hands of Port Adel
