Round 18 Non MFC Games

Recommended Posts

Great win by the Bombers undermanned and on the road

Adelaide are a joke of a team, seem to have all the pieces but something's missing. Just never trust then to win a competitive game.

Our constant injury excuse wears a bit thin when you see an undermanned Essendon missing high quality players, win a game in hostile territory.

Or maybe sides like Collingwood and Essendon (who can win with numerous injuries) have far better depth than us.

Nailed it. Their outs would be equivalent to ours however find a way to turn a 5 goal deficit into a 3 1/2 goal win.

Also for those that bag our skippers need to have a look at what I consider the worst captain in the game in Walker. He went missing in that GF and again tonight. If I was the Crows I would look to get rid of him pronto. Going gets tough and he plays in the stands.

Absolutely. The MFC do not work hard enough at a constant level

We hide behind excuses so many times, rather than just get down and do it. 

Essendrug are a top 4 chance now. 

We are nowhere....

peptides' workrate is enormous

they don't give up and they keep fighting at the moment - they're on a run not too dissimilar to that which we had last year

as a football side they play a brand of footy that is entertaining to watch

When your allowed to run further with the ball, throw the ball and maggots look the other way , run out of bounce continuously and play on, acceptably kick ten metres, run over the mark continuously without stopping....... and the other Team isn't, who cares how many free kicks are paid.......Most of maggots barrack for same team anyway.

It's okay. We're working hard. At least we get pick 2? That's the message around here...

Once the round is over though and WC have given us a football lesson, the pressure gauge will turn up on Goodwin. 17th with 5 rounds to go. No where to hide anymore. Let's see what excuses are thrown out now.

I see Tex did what Tex does best....................... a whole lot of nothing!

The next coach in line to go has to be Don Pyke.  As DD has pointed out, their captain does absolutely nothing, but so does their coach. 

Remember the Alice Springs game last year?  All he did was stare at the players.  

Not a single move made by him from the 2nd quarter against the Bombers.  No tag on Stringer.  No-one on Tipungwuti.  How many unmarked Essendon forwards got easy marks and kicks in their forward 50...Brown, Heppell etc.

Seriously walking out of the final against hawthorn after the game all happy and excited, if someone told you then that in july next year you will be 17th on the ladder and Carlton would be above you you would never ever have believed it.

We should have beaten Adelaide by 4 - 5 goals.

We thrashed both of them at VFL level by more than 60 points but for reasons I cannot fathom very few of our VFL players take the next step.

Yes.

They categorise the draw according to a 1-6, 7-12, 13-18 finish.

Injuries have definitely been a factor but 17th on the ladder is beyond injuries. Absolute disgrace for everyone connected with the club. Excuses have been flying but seriously it beyond comprehension. Can anyone believe the last rebuild has been nothing but a complete con job yet no ramifications for anyone.

That's why I'm not fussed with Carlton overtaking us today. If this seasons going to be bad it might as well be truly shizen. Regroup over preseason with players ready to go on day 1, with the number 2 pick and an easier draw.

    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

    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
