O Mac to Lynch? Or Omac to Riewoldt?

 

that is absolutely terrifying 🤦‍♂️

My Goodness! OMac in again? Heaven help us.

All the Demon backs will have to cover for him against Richmond just to fill the OMac gap (and simultaneously be caught, repeatedly, out of position many, many times - prepare ye the way of the rampant Tiger forwards. Goodwin could not have done better for those opportunistic runners. 

We know where the attack will be directed: at OMac wherever he may be. He is as good as two men missing for most of the game and into the last quarter, three or four more men missing as our other backs display total exhaustion from  the now-required double-teaming for three quarters. Frosty and HIbberd will bear the brunt of it all and Salem will be shagged by half-time.

Oscar -v- Riewoldt/Lynch. Pray for very heavy rain all day Saturday.

Pray for a game-ending earthquake at quarter time!

Guarantee the sponsor prize Jag ends up in a Richmond supporters hand to cap off the spanking and show the absurdity that our sponsor will give the major prize to anyone who turns up rather than the cash paying members or the sponsor clubs own supporters!!

Am I the only one thinking this will be the mirror image of the last time we met? Like all of our double up matches where we don't really learn a thing and repeat the same mistakes, however much captain crash n bash would like to talk about how we're learning from the year  (SEN today)

We'll shut up shop, flood back all game with no one to kick to forward and avoid a massive embarrassing prime-time loss as the Tigers keep a 12-24 point margin for most of the game, before kicking away in the last quarter after we "excitedly" get to within 1 goal. We'll of course never really have been in the contest.

Can I book you in for a palm reading sometime?

May still unfit. OMac another game by default. Tim Smith out injured again. What a f’ing joke. 

I don't care how old they are, but we need to recruit a senior KPF next year, even if they're depth. If by miracle, we're contending next year but Weid or Tmac get injured, we can't rely on T. Smith to play more than 1 or 2 games in a row. There goes any forward line chemistry and we're back to being scored ridiculously easily on the forward half turnover.

Anyone that wouldn't take Jenkins or even Westhoff for a couple of years over having T. Smith and Keilty alone in reserve is absolutely kidding themselves.

ANB OUT...who would have predicted that? (Err...everyone for the last 3 months).

Shame May doesnt get up, but looking after him for the longer term comes first.

We have so much to improve to just be competitive.  Everyone will expect us to get spanked.  Set up and play faux-tough, and then get absolutely pantsed on the turnover.  It is a struggle to see how we will kick a competitive score, and even harder to see how we stop them.  OMac just doesnt man up, Frost doesnt think when he disposes of it. No Nev, Hibbard looks at half pace.

Im glad they sell beer.

I stopped caring a long time ago, but surely Hore should have come in for McDonald allowing Lever to go to Lynch or Riewoldt.

Did we really give up two first round draft picks for a back pocket?

Lever will help us win a premiership

Indictment on the club OMac gets another game after his shocker last week. Bartlett promised action ... Well Glen

Can I give you a hint.. Coaching and Selections are mystifying, to say the least, Yeah I know injuries and all, but for one of our "Finds" in Hore, to miss again and Oscar to be given yet another game is almost negligent. As a member, Im not happy with this!! Agree with post Petty back and u know who out.

Not happy, but not unexpected!!

Will be interesting to see given the season we have had if Jag re-sign as their existing sponsorship was only for one yr. 

btw I think the tigers will be after a % booster this week.

I’m going simply because I feel like the $72,000 I spent on memberships this year has been a total waste of money. With 2 home games left before I bugger off, I’ll go to try and win the Jag so at least something can be salvaged from this season. 

We will get smashed. This is an ugly ugly team.

    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
