All you Melbourne people need to get to the ground this Friday night and support the Dees. Lets have more people there than Sydney as last 2 home games were poorly attended by us. I can't as based in Qld but I reckon we have a big chance in this one. Been playing some ordinary footy but only just getting beaten so tidy up some basic skill errors, look for our players for a change when we win the ball (which we do often) and come home with the bacon.

Thank you round eh?

I assume they're thanking us rather than us thanking them.

I think we'll get the job done here as Gawn will dominate against no recognised ruckman and we won't get punished as much with our turnovers. That being said out forward line is a huge concern in terms of winning a game of footy. 

Us by 16 pts in a low scoring yawner. Hoping Sydney have either packed up for the year or are focusing on the final game with McVeigh's farewell and Buddy's 300th.

I actually think the reverse might accomplish more. For 55 years we have kept attending despite the rubbish we have been dished up. If no one turns up that might finally get the message over that we are tiring of what the MFC delivers.

So this is number 3 of the all time biggest games of our amazing 2019 season.

Could I possibly miss it.... I ask you

With a prediction of showers and about 12 degrees it sounds like a perfect night out and of course there is our exciting brand of football.

I think I'll be washing my hair and/or watching the young Smith boy pummel the Poms.

I have a movie to see tomorrow night. Just a little story about holding out against the odds at a place called Long Tan.

"Hmm ... Tasmanian Demons ... I like the sound of that. Tasmanian ... Demons ... Hey! Where are the betting ads? There hasn't been one on the scoreboard for over a minute! And can we turn up the volume on the ground announcer doofus? I can still hear myself think! Sandra, get me Channel 7 on the red phone. I'm going to apologise, just in case."

I am tipping us to win a nail-biter. Not because i think we are better than Sydney but because we are not Gold Coast and just cant keep losing week after week after week after week after week after week.

Or can we?

This is Melbourne... of course we can.

Sydney by 4 goals.

Something else on, so not going to this 3XL blockbuster.

what has Chandler done to deserve a game?  Routinely gets 4 disposals and about 20 AF points at Casey.

i believe we can win this one.

Only watched the last ten minutes of training. They must have started early. 

Noticed they empathised communication and structure.

Billy Stretch,  Charlie Spargo, Alex Neal-Bullen, Marty Hore and Kade Chandler with the squad.

No Harrison Petty, and I can't remember seeing Oskar Baker, Jayden Hunt or Oscar Mcdonald (could be wrong).

It was good to see Jeff Garlett running laps.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    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

    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
