So, I'm not generally in the "sack Goodwin" camp, although I do think he's under massive pressure, but can someone explain something to me?

Why pick one of the smallest teams ever, and then make the game plan slow and long down the line?

Structure, structure, structure. Must have at least one tall in the forward line. This is incredible to watch, especially when the mids are clearly bombing it long to the non-existant tall.

I’ve turned off, that last 3-4min of play was pure garbage. Stupid footy, with us coughing up opportunities for us and them getting a shot on goal right before half time. 

Another goalless quarter, total ineptitude. I was going to name specific players but really almost the entire team coughing up DEAD BASIC kicks/handballs. 

Our “good” players are not performing well either. Gawn is the one player doing his job well, Level and Hibberd are trying to hold out in defence but when it comes down there it’s under so little pressure it makes it hard for them. 

But Brayshaw, Oliver, Viney, Jones, Harmes are getting murdered in the middle. And while I’m mentioning Oliver, what the F was that shot on goal? He needs to be nailing them 90% of the time. 

We are so pathetically bad it’s excruciating.

It's Friday night, I can't believe I'm watching this.

You'll be on your own soon,  viewers surely won't put themselves thru this putrid drivel for much longer. 

Beyond awful. 

No more Friday games for us for a few years

Good theatrics going on out there

Longmire carrying on like a pork chop to feign interest

Macca patting guys on the bum as they're coming off, trying to gee them up

The commentators talking about Hamilton and Fred Fanning

And Bruce commentating on the seagulls

Awesome

Meanwhile, we are [censored] - Jonesy, thanks for your service

Really are we surprised with the team we have out there?

4 midgets and we bomb it high and can’t stick a tackle.

Very predictable.

does not matter if they are  midgets or talls they have all had plenty of opportunity to get tackle the swans players and have failed to do so. Max is the only one i see doing a good job. We are slow to move the ball and we cannot hit a target. ANB should not be out there, sorry but i dont see any place in the side as bad as it is for stretch, i wish i could but he is just not up to it. and i wish i knew what the hell salem is doing with his kicking its diabolical today.

 He’s gone missing this qtr, Swans KIDS are running rings around us. 

If that is correct BA then the contrast of output / quality is astonishing between quarters.

Goody looks completely lost for answers in the box and shows no emotions at any point.  I would be furious at some of the passages of play as a team and from many individuals tonight. 

Get to the bench, attempt to at least show them / highlight where they are going wrong immediately while the errors are still fresh and highlighting the alternative ways available to improve as a team and individual.

Bruce didn't get the Rowbottom nickname initially. Paddlebum.

Well pointed out by Rooey. 

Arrogance is debilitating... would love Oliver to have the vision and accuracy of fritta.

I’m ok with him staying on for one more year, but he should be on massively reduced coin and be glad that we’re giving him another run in the red and blue.

He obviously has himself as captain on supercoach. As do all our players .. it’s survival mode, team play is almost non existent.

It's true. We waited for so long for a few Friday night games. We got them, and look what we've done. It'll be 2050 before we see another one.

Don’t think I’ve ever seen a more impotent forward line. Really regretting the decision to come to the G tonight.

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    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
