Needs to go play rugby union.

A very very LIMITED Footballer , close to zero skills and tries to break every tackle. Worst Captain in the league in my book and it will be a deesgrace if either Him or Jones are Captains again next year!

If you or any other supporter thinks they know more than the football dept. you are delusional and that is a fact

Really?? Then our footy Dept has been tracking Exceptionally well of late don't you think??

There are many "Respected" Demonlanders that I think are on the money with many opinions. Dazzle Davey 36 being one!

We need MORE heads to roll. I don't think Goodwin has any idea what to do. FWIW I also heard the same story about some player resentment regarding Viney's selection as Captain, and source was a former player!

Trading Viney is our best way to get 3 picks inside top 20 of the draft. We need a Rozee/Dursma/Butters esque draft.

I watched last year's winning finals today for a bit of relief

Jack was just great

Sure he needs to tweak his game, and improve like everyone else, but he's a gun and should play his career at Melbourne ❤💙

That’s what no pre season does to ya. He and many others just haven’t got going. 

2 years ago before the foot blew up we were talking about him winning the Brownlow. He was influential, tough and racking them up. The final wins we had last year demonstrated how important he is when in form. Let’s wait and see after he gets a full preseason in and then judge him. 

Agree 100%, let’s see what he can do after a full pre season! He has lifted the team on his own back in a few big games when firing, would be great to see him 100% fit at the start of the season.

Posters should watch the last two minute of the Brisbane Geelong game. Lincoln McCarthy takes a screamer 20 metres out, Captain Zorko walks with back with him to take his shot and gives him calming advice to settle him for the pressure kick. Of course he kicks the match winning goal. Don’t see Viney or Jones do that often.

I am happy for Jack to remain a Demon

But he cannot be a Captain. It is just not on

Both Captains have failed in their duties, responsibilities must be accepted for this horror year

Correct. I don’t blame him. You are either a leader or you are not. 

Both of our Captains right now are not natural leaders. It’s plainly obvious. 

I can still hear Max’s speech at last years B & F. 

We need a clean slate next year

I am coming around to this conclusion for team captains, team selection, team coaching. Assistants and advisors. As well. 

We need an assistance coach who is capable of being no 1, a plan A, plan B and even plan C.

we need to recruit another backman and a small and tall forward who can play in the best 22.  How and who , I have no idea, but I do not think we can wait for a young recruit to grow into those roles.

2019 has been just so bad, no game plan, no forwards, no team spirit, our best 22 injured half the time. We need drastic change or we will be rubbish for the next decade.

With luck we might have picked the fitness man for the job. I hope so. 

But I will not be purchasing the 6 memberships I usually do until February,

if I do.  No I will rejoin but it’s a small protest!!

I agree mate. This year is a complete collapse. I don’t care what the spin tells me. 

What we have now has failed, and it must be treated that way. It collapsed in The Preliminary Final and has remained broken all year. 

Totally unacceptable to 52,000 Members. 

I hope most Members with hold paying next years Membership till later, after serious changes have been made and instigated otherwise we will go nowhere fast

Should stand down from the captaincy and focus on being the best player he possibly can be. we've made the same mistake over and over, Grimes, Trengove and now Viney. don't make a player captain until he has his game totally sorted. 

Max Gawn should be captain next season. potentially supported by Nev Jetta

    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

    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
