GAMEDAY: Rd 20 vs Richmond

Recommended Posts

Loving Fritter in the forward line, because he's a forward.

It's crazy I know, but it works.

Oh, incorrect disposal. Is that even a rule?

I think the answer to that question is like the answer to most questions of this sort, “only when it benefits the team not in red and blue”

We are doing well aside from maggot infestation. Good to see players hitting up targets rather than bombing inside 50. Big question is can we not fall away in the last quarter as we have done last three rounds?

We need a royal commission into the umpires

This must run deep to match fixing and corporate $$$’s for tv rights and other media

Putting both hands on Max's ears and trying to grip his head. Where in the rules is that an infringement????

Unbelievable umpiring so far!

Preuss looks like a liability out there in general play. Sooo slow. 

Good pressure by the dees and, as mistake ridden as it is, I like the style better when we’re focused on attacking like this.n

If I hear Ling talk about the "corridor" one more time, I will throw my Funk and Wagnall's at his head.

It's all very clear to me now.

We need cows grazing on the G through the week, and extra dung beetles brought in to boost numbers.

That will reduce the fly population, and, ergo, fewer maggots.

Love that a Tigers player drags the ball 20 metres from goal and the umpire yells out ‘already on the ground when he grabbed’. Where was that rule 2 weeks ago? That rule is far too unevenly applied. 

In general umpires decisions are purely based on perception of who is the better player/club.

Easily our best half of footy for the year given the quality of the Opp.

Yep. I think we'll lose and it's just our mad skillz that are letting us down.

Just great to finally see forward entries and shots at goal now working more effectively.

Rawlings?

It's such a confidence thing and I'm sure we'll lose that and the wind will go out of our sails.

Geez I love Frosty. He's been such an ordinary player that has just kept working on his game.

We'll really miss Jetta and May in the end.

Heard an umpire say that Ra Richmond player wasn't holding the ball because he was already on the ground. Where was that rule for Gawn a few weeks ago?

The inconsistency in umpiring is a disgrace, and the AFL only have themselves to blame.

Great half! Maxxy looked possessed out there!

Trac, Fritter, Frosty - awesome stuff! Some of those runs by Frosty sent shivers down my spine. I'll take Frost ball any day of the week.

I know we've turned it over a bit, and there are still lots of problems with basic skills, but I love that we're trying different things. Fewer long bombs, actual direction, they're thinking, and trying. Much better. These are some of the things we can build from.

What have we done in the last 30-50 years ... he’s played against & saw the rabble we have been & apart from 2 gf which we lost to him by 96points we continue to unravel & can’t sustain success. You need to earn respect by winning something not pretending!

It's called, let's make it up as we go along, because we cannot be criticized.

gotta say, ecstatic with our effort - again, it's our execution letting us down

tigers are missing, what, three players from best 22? all top tenners in rance, nank, and cotchin, but still...we're playing with the likes of corey wagner and kennedy harris for us, plus children like baker and dunkley!

    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

    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
