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.

    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

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition

    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

    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
