I get that it's late in the year and whatnot, but it always feels like Gawn is the only won trying to win the game back when things start to turn against us.

(With apologies to Oliver, Frost, Hibbard, Petracca)

And Fritta, but yeah...

Strange this is what you take out of the game. Every week it is a similar troll.

 

Which part was troll? The part about him having 0 tackles or the part about him coasting for cheap kicks? I was at the game and watched him closely, his one injury away from retirement and he knows it so his in self preservation mode. Jones is done.

Anyone that cares, can we feasibly finish bottom?

Is it possible to actually suck that badly that the Suns are considered a better team?

If the players don’t give a stuff ,

the administration don’t care either, the coach talks in epithets with no answer or responsibility and I cannot see any future

why the eff should I care. After too many years this is the worst I have felt, over it all. 

My wife thinks I am an idiot, wanting to watch this crap,  she might be right .  She usually is !

Gawn's ability to never give up never ceases to amaze.  Oliver is an able accomplice and Fritsch has clearly improved since being moved forward.  Lewis did a solid job on Grimes, and Frost tried hard.  I didn't mind Dunkley's effort as well.  Preuss looks a long way from the standard required. He's not Robinson Crusoe though.

0 tackles for Viney and Jones. Was at the game and saw Jones Coast off the back of packs trying to get cheap touches. Didn’t see him get into a sprint once. His done.

Agree. For someone quibbling about his contract offer, you’d hope he would put in more effort

I’d love to ask Glenn Bartlett what his criteria for an external revue is (if falling from top 4 to second bottom doesn’t justify it).

Turn up the heat Glenn. It’s your job mate.

Much rather go to a revue than the mcg this year....😉

Goodwin has no bloody idea. How he got us to a prelim finals seems staggering. 

He hasn’t changed his tactics from last year and all the other clubs have worked us out.

No plan B or C and has us stuck in concrete boots. The ‘play on’/hand-pass at all cost game plan is flawed and invariably leads to a turn over. Players have also lost faith in it. 

Hawks won 3 premierships is a row (a feat that might not be repeated this century) possessing the ball by foot. 

Learn something from that football  and adapt it slightly to suit our side. 

Whatever style game you have us playing now, Goodwin, is [censored]...

Yeah switched it off and watched the cricket when graham kicked the goal from the boundary... 

Aussie bowlers have done very well getting us back into the test!! 

of course I turned it on straight after the 3 wickets in 11 balls ... and now I'm going to sit here for hours and watch a huge partnership build - I guarantee it.

Still better than watching the Dees though.

Preuss is a dud. The big lumox couldn’t even stick a tackle - one of their smalls broke free of him far too easily. He can’t play with Max pure and simple.

Was at the footy, the boys had a go, but once the rain came Richmond took control. The umpires were atrocious we couldn’t get a free until the game was over.

You have a short memory. Max Gawn was just as bad in his early AFL games.

He was. He missed a goal from 5m out directly in front in one of his earliest games. He looked like an unco giraffe.

Petty’s marking was excellent. Especially in those conditions.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
