Clearly not understanding of Lockhart’s role. Negated JJ all day.

Salem was ok, Brayshaw was career worst game almost.

MFC - dumb football club

MFC - lost winnable game

MFC - not very smart

I think today give us so many chances and I think the players will think it was “an honourable loss”. 

I agree Joeboy was harsh on Lockhart. He’s having a crack.

Thought Salem was fine. Had it 25 times and a dozen contested.

Hannan obviously is working his way into fitness after a long stint on the sidelines, buts it's been several weeks now and he just looks miles off.

18 negatives. And we only went down by 8 points.   ?????

ANB : Lacks Pysical Strength

Lewis : Provided some leadership

Jones : the wicket was too bouncy

Preuss: the ball was too slippery

Hunt : Think and move

Dunkley : Learning

Lockart : Learning all the time. Make tackle stick

Brayshaw : Out of position

Viney : Improving

Clarrie: When giving ball by hand ,important to stay around the contested area.

Frost and Fritsch : Costly brain fades

Hibberd, May, Salem : Nucleus of our defence

I stopped reading this thread ages ago, occasionally have a squiz to see if the irrelevance is still there, the comment re Salem confirms this

Question remains did @joeboy actually watch the game?

Mate, I agree with you that the assessment of Salem seems harsh, but why not just say "I actually thought Salem was good and here's why..." rather than taking a pot shot at someone on the internet that you don't know? Doesn't get anyone anywhere taking the personal approach.

I don't normally play either but why not.....my players 

Jones: 7 costly turnovers

Brayshaw: Time for Casey

Jetta: Was never going to be ready (haven't the FD learnt yet?)

Fritsch: 50% Efficiency.....ouch!

Lewis:  Stopping development progress

Hannan: Dear oh dear

Preuss: not fit enough

Well what I find interesting from your 3 word summary, is that most of them are negative. Combine that with some charity goals to the Dogs and 14 players unavailable for us and yet we only lost by 8 points at the Dogs dung heap, on a day when they were celebrating their survival 30 years ago and needed to win to keep their final's chances alive.

I find that pretty amazing.

Got news for you.  Frosty has been among the better for many weeks now.  Even the Frost bashes have gone silent. 

As far as Hannan is concerned, there was no cake and no icing today, as there hasn’t been since his return many weeks ago!

Agree with Jetta.  Terribly underdone.  Needed at least another one at Casey.  Another obvious selection mistake which required no hindsight as so many queried it pre game.

Yeh he was about 4 rows back from fence. Never wanted to get near ball so sat in stands.

Thought he was one of our better players...saved a couple of certain goals & generally used the ball well.

A few weeks back when he copped a knock early was his worst game...you knew something was wrong when he couldn't hit a target.

Has done a job the last 2 weeks, Simpson last week & JJ today. Kept them quiet but does seem to be playing sore so may need a rest.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
