Just think we could have has a suburban coach, President and CEO for the past 6 years and be in much the same position. It is mind boggling. many will criticize but Roos for 2-3 years was always a desperate move.

Roos was a great move.

mate...all the p;layers in the world wont help

consider:

A good chef with a sound knowledge of food can conjour an incredible meal with the most basic ingredients....because he understands it.

The same chef with rubbish ingredients will struggle....but he/she will cook according to what is before them.

A good recipe can work ok with average ingredients if the cook knows what hes doing.

A very poor recipe will yield something totally unpalatable irregardless of who's cooking simply because it's flawed.

If you have a very mediocre cook...no chef...and Ok ingredients but a poor recipe you will always get crud. 

I say time and time again....our demise is by design.

Liam Henry is the top indigenous small forward in this years draft who made AA. Exactly what we need. Yes he is Freo academy player so we will need to bid what they won’t pay but he is what we need.

Really worried about Brayshaw too, hasn’t looked remotely interested all year.

Just doesn’t look happy.

This coach continues to rush in underdone players , why?

Because even underdone they are better than the scrubs at Casey? Because we keep getting injuries to other players creating a gap in the side.

Lever had done enough training and games, just have to get him back in and live with some mistakes and lack of footy.

Jetta was rushed in to play limited game time out of the back pocket, at the end of the day he probably wasn't any worse than playing Josh Wagner. Wasn't any better either, but if he's made it through without injuries he'll be better next week for the run at AFL level.

Someone needs to teach ANB to pass the ball not just kick it.

He also excels at handpassing to the opposition

Great move if he gave us 5 years. If not I could take or leave him.

Thought Jetta was terrible today, and yes, even a Wagner would have done better.

Yep, hard to argue he didnt leave before the job was completed. Roos was great for our club but we didnt have him for long enough to make the changes permanent. Our club culture improved each year Roos was involved, but has sadly reverted to its familiar self very quickly once he left.

Goody is out of his depth.

We're a lost cause atm. 

Geez the perennial positives go missing when we're in the mud. Nothing to say I guess. 

Severe lack of skill and decision making on show again. Harmes really enjoys the AFL lifestyle. Would be cool if he realised that one good season doesn't mean a lot at this level if you don't back it up. Yeh mate, you have abs and a some tough stickers, we get it.

Well, mathematically it was our last chance to make the finals so was worth a last roll of the dice. 

Now that it's all over red rover they might put a few players in for early surgeries..

3 touches and constantly behind his opponent when the ball came forward

He needs a spell

Thought he had a decent 2018. Top 20 off 15 games.

Hasn't had a fair crack this year.

These days I watch our games hoping for a miraculous resurrection and once again I'll see the exciting, free flowing team of last year. Alas, it's not to be. That team has gone like the snows of yesteryear, like the hopes of decent umpiring, like the idea of not handballing at a team mate's feet. Gone, all gone, all lost. Adieu.

Im 51 and also have abs and a tough sticker (Granted, its a tattoo of a cat on my forearm, but its still permanent)

The team needs more than a sense of self-importance to become successful.

We were never free flowing.
Every goal is from a rugby scrum.
Even last year.

They were lucky they got abit of confidence at the pointy end but still made hard work of both winning finals.
Reverted to form over in Perth.

Yes I'm worried about him as well. He doesn't look like the same person as last year. I worry his multiple concussions have affected him adversely. I looked up some info on what these can do to a person. Neuroscientists are discovering concussions can cause new anxiety and can worsen existing anxiety. Concussions can have long term consequences to mental health. This is not a good sign. I hope MFC are looking after him, or we will be hearing about his troubles in the future.

Probably Viney. Saw the ball fly out to the wing from a center bounce. 7 players sprinted after it, Viney walked after it. Unforgiveable

Look petty looked good up forward and he should take confidence from today. 

Preuss needs to practice his marking. He dropped a few doozies today. 

May, the more I see the more I think next year after a full pre season where he won't be overweight he will be so good for us.

Max  i am sure will be asking questions about the supposed ruck infringements.

We missed tackles, goals fritta please explain why you played on when you had time.  

One day petracca will play 4 quarters

Begs belief how Petracca is never able to impact in Q4. Mission has a lot to answer for.

    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
