Thank God for Oliver's poise to hit up Hunt... 

That was unreal.

Was wondering where you had been wise, hope you are well!

HOW GOOD WAS THAT?!!!

Don’t underestimate how hard that was going to be with 3 down on the bench, enjoy the win and don’t forget to smile once in a while everyone.

Do not want to lose to a team like Carlton. EVER.

McDonald just says he “doesn’t think he did his ACL”. Jesus Christ! 

This year is cursed. Horrible game. Skills are embarrassing. Season needs to end fast. 

I'm no doctor but the vision looks similar to Lever ACL last year.

Yes it’s a win, but I have no idea where this club is going.  When you look how strong the top clubs are, we are bog ordinary.  A premiership looks like it’s another generation away.  I wish we had the players and culture of top teams.

I only started watching right about the time Carlton made a comeback so you can blame me.

Hunt redeemed himself after being truly deplorable in that last quarter with disgusting skills.  Full credit to him.

I look forward to watching the part where we dominated.

If the focus this pre-season isn’t 100% about improving skills and decision making then Goodwin will be gone by halfway through next year.

Potential for a severe self flagulation if watch anything other than 3rd quarter, a quarter which resembled something like modern football CB

Our season has been woeful but that was a good win in the end. Players were totally out on their feet, but they just wanted to win.

Two things I learned today:

1) The umps gave us a stellar run in the first half and then proceeded to do the same for Carlton in the second half. They must manufacture a nice even free kick ledger at the end of the game at all costs.

2) The crowd at a Carlton game perfectly mirrors the Carlton supporters I know in real life. They are absolutely clueless about the rules of the game. Even I couldn’t bring myself to scream “Ball” or “50” at some of the crap they do.

Here is hoping the fact they guts out that win is some kind of turning point, teams of Melbourne past would have thrown that away.

Totally 

Plonk him at Full Forward and give the defense a question as to who mans him up. Then rotate Max forward occasionally

We are not playing well. Our first quarter we should buried them but basic skill errors cost us. The only positives are we scored more than 100 points and won a close one.

Really weird game, because I thought we played pretty well in the first 3 quarters.

Anyway, I’ve said in the past that we find a way to lose when we shouldn’t, while at the same time good teams are finding ways to win when they shouldn’t. So at least we got the 4 points.

Real bummer about Marty Hore. Dunkley did pretty well for someone who's been in the big league for three weeks. Couple of classy feeds to the forwards under pressure. Sure, some pretty ugly disposals at times, but I can see him being a future Melksham.

Carlton supporters live in the past. They were spoiled by ill gotten successes and feel entitled. They can't understand why they are not super successful again. Just like Essendon supporters, they blame the AFL for punishing them unjustly, even though they were caught red handed. Whingers of the finest order.

How important was Preuss in the ruck 44 HO 14 poss 5 marks a great replacement for Gawn. How good to have both of them playing together ?

With Preuss's performance today he might have cemented a spot in the side  for a number of weeks ahead. Goody would have been rapt with his performance as he outpointed Kreuzer.

There is still something to work with here.

We played much better tempo footy today and honestly should have been nearly ten goals up at one stage.

But there is still a messaging and confidence problem, always looking to pass off what should be easy kicks and then shanking them when we do finally take a decent shot and you can almost feel the terror emanating from the player.

Look at Trac, when it's instinct, he's great.

The instant he thinks, blurgh.

Gutsy effort considering the lack of rotations. If Carlton were any good, they would have iced the game in the first 15 minutes of the last. It means nothing of course in the sense of the season (apart from more injury woe), but that IS the win of the season.

    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

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium?

That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores.

    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
