Recommended Posts

Lockhart just thr 2 disposal so far. Fair to say he is getting tired with the no AFL pre season.

BT saying the breeze has swung to favour our end for the third quarter! Can we take advantage, does our coaching staff realise this (if true).

If Lewis keeps playing like that as a defensive forward for the rest of the year and hits the scoreboard regularly does he stay another year?

Yes, prefer his performance today over that of Spargo, Garlett, ANB or Hannans all year. If Ablett can do it so can Lewis

He is seriously barely VFL standard at present Jaded.  In patches he might look VFL worthy but that's about it.

ANB had a very solid last 20 minutes

Can see why Preuss was left at Casey. 1 disposal and 0 tackles so far.

Yep, his leadership is still important.

Agreed. And listening to Goodwin’s painful and full of cliche press conferences only makes it worse. No idea from anyone down there. 

I haven't turned off and as hard as it has been to watch you gotta give some credit where credit is due.

Can they keep it up though?

Agree that Lewis was a good call, but you jumped in the Hyper Bowl i'm afraid, and it was funny :)

He still packs his dacks when he gets it, but you're right.  He had a good second term and looked like the player that kicked 20+ goals last season.  We need him to back it up in the second half.

When May, Lever, Jetta and Lewis were all out, we almost didn't have an option but to put him back.  Now that they're all back we have the freedom to stick him there.

You mean there's a reason for why Fritsch was playing Lever's role?

At least one good move today is putting Fritsch up forward. Natural position for him and one he can finally play with no backline injuries. 

As several of us, you included I think, have suggested all year. The guy is a forward.

Better disposal efficiency, marks inside 50 and contested marks but losing inside 50’s. Very unMelbourne like.

Who would you have put there?  With those guys out we were already forced to play Oscar, J Wagner etc down there.  We needed a little but of class and footy IQ.  Granted, he never always hit the target, but he did it more often than others.

Whilst I'd have to review the footage - and apologies if wrong -  Nathan Jones' foot skills have recently been recognised by Champion data as being well and truly above average. In a time where Oscar, JWags, Salem, Frost and Hore where in the backline, I would say he'd have been a great 6th addition.

Meanwhile, conversion in the forward 50 was at one time rated a historic AFL low. I'd say that'd indicate we needed more help up forward than down back. 

But anyway, also respect the fact that Fritsch was needed back. But always felt the forward line was the bigger problem, and frustrated that Fritsch wasn't utilized to address that.

Wise i can only assume you must have missed most of the earlier matches Fritshkrieg played down back?  Was like having a man down down when Goody continued with this.  Completely wasted and useless move for the bulk of the season costing us so many turnovers, many of those in the middle catching defenders out up the field for joe the goose goals or just joe the goose goals as he was caught in no mans land on turnovers further up the field allowing opponents a paddock to run inside 50 or shoot at goal.

We had fumbled early and not kicked straight and at times we yawned and went to sleep but still we find a way to come back at them by half time .We are a good enough team to do well at all times. However l see it they can really confuse me and play well in the second half and win this game.

Umpires gave us a fair go that quarter and we kicked straightish to get back into it.

also I love how both Ryan and Rioli have flown on top of packs taking out defenders with no realistic attempt at the ball, allowing Their big forwards to Mark unopposed. OK by the umps it seems. 

May was clearly shoved out of the marking contest by Darling allowed Kennedy to take mark virtually unopposed that quarter. Do WCE bring their own umpires also when travelling?

Great fight back.

Viney playing a great game.

Fritta doing a top job up forward.

Jetta getting amongst it as is Harmes.

Brilliant move Lewis up forward  (who ever would have thought).

Have been quite happy with Corey Wagner's game so far as will.

Me.

Left of screen is obvious scoring end. Let’s see if Goodwin is smart enough to lock down the game in the 3rd or not

Well you ignorant moron, he's made brilliant moves thus far in this game. Lewis v McGovern, did you foresee this? Has it worked?

What's that got to do with the reason he was put down there?

And he was prone to errors, but no more so than anyone else down there during the earlier and middle parts of the season.

Anyway, let's move on y'all.  We're playing good footy so let's enjoy it.

Not getting anything from Preuss or Lockhart, and if Weideman had put in a game like Petty's ...

Petracca's cameo in the last 15 minutes enough to give him some browny points, but has been invisible for much of the game.

Lots of room for improvement.

    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

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
