Rubbish game. Scoreboard flattered us as we kicked some junktime goals after not giving a yelp for 2.5 quarters. May injured again. Lever destroyed by Mihochek, he’s no good one on one unfortunately. Those two big trades have set us back big time. 

Looks like another rebuild looms. We need to hit the top end of the draft hard again to get more young talent in.

On the bright side, congratulations on OMac for joining the exclusive 589th kick, first goal club.

One would have thought that the guy would have done more up fwd given his season.

Not a defender and not a forward.

Perhaps hes holding out for some time on the ball.

Hunt, Viney Jones OMac JKH are done.

Dunkleys decision making is looking a bust to.

Bit harsh on Dunkley only came to the club half way through the season, agree Jones, JHK and Salem who are a bit soft under pressure the other one is an anchor is Viney.

May was great until injured and that’s prob the only good player we had. Maybe throw Frost and Fritta in the good players too. 

Frost was seriously horrible, couldn't get within 5 metres of his opponent today, he got lucky Elliott couldn't kick straight. Fritra, may and tracc our best by a long way

Fritter BOG for us.

Trac went missing a little, but did some nice things.

Maxxy looked flat (I don't blame him)

Pies are depleted, but they're not much chop. If you only beat us by 17 points, are you even trying?

God this season has felt long. Two more games to go...

I like him and he at least gives us something to look forward to in 2020. ....but when you kick 1.4 it’s a frikn disgrace. No way bog

OMac's goal reminded me of the Under 10s when the coach makes sure everyone gets a turn.

Participation ribbons for everyone.

That’s really harsh. I know hating on Omac is flavour of the month but he honestly played well today. Was aggressive at the ball, and hit targets. Considering he’s never played forward or ruck, he did well. Needs a break. He’s hardly the core of our issues.

We are hopeless how we only lost by 3 goals is an indictment on the Pies. Petracca and Fritsch the only good players the rest are spuds. A long 2 weeks coming up.

My thoughts

we played terrible, passing  forward lousy,

pies are not much chop  even early they played poorly.  But we were worse !

umpiring was deplorable think both sides would have thought that   OMac played better up forward and even in the ruck better than he had down back.  He does like to crunch his opponents. 

Very glad there are only two weeks left. 

 

But it I do not think we gave up at any time much better than last week !

Yeah, I know what you mean, but he also delivered well and contributed to a couple of other goals. If there was someone else who kicked straight, I'd have said they were BOG, but there wasn't. He's generally a decent kick for goal, off day. If May played the game out, he would likely have received the 'honour'.

I agree. I'm no OMac fan (I'm usually in favour of him playing for the 2s), but I thought he was ok at times. At least looked like he wanted to be out there, and played with intent.

We are completely lost. 

In all areas of the ground. 

It's truly woeful. 

I agree. But yet, it does surprise me that we haven’t been seriously thrashed on the scoreboard. Something is still there. Some heart beat.... but it’s v faint.

He should've signed the offer that was put in front of him.

A new offer needs to be drawn up, and it's a lot lower.

Plays unaccountable footy, 1 tackle in 2 matches is unacceptable.

I have watched him at a few matches and all he does is peel off his wingman (ie Sidebottom) to hang off the back of packs trying to get cheap kicks.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
