We are watching a team that is depressed and embarrassed about themselves

Unwatchable is the word that comes to mind.

Must be some positives there ... thought Lever is looking better each week, and showing why we got him, Lewis was good until injured, Brayshaw looking more like the player of last year, and didn't mind Spargo up the field a bit. He's one player who generally manages to do something with it and hit a target.

Apart from that though, struggling.

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 an 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.

He should be too embarrassed to go there and show to both the viewers just what a deer in the headlights looks like..

Poor efforts all round but at the end of the day he has to cop his share of blame.

You do realise , in a season of poor efforts and poor teams, this is the worst side we've fielded all year. what did you expect?

That half has put the question about sacking Goodwin to bed. He simply has to be signed up for life. Wasn’t alive for the Norm Smith era but surely Gooody is the equal of, if not better!

Don’t think I’ve ever seen a more impotent forward line.

Yes, but hard to see what the alternatives were. And not helped by the players further up the ground not having the skills or vision to adjust how they deliver inside 50.

Wow.  Haven't watched us intently for weeks because of how [censored] we are. 

Turned it on tonight ten minutes into second quarter.  Same as usual.  Gawn dominating.  Frost busting his [censored].  Fritsch doing his best.  Petracca trying, but ultimately failing.  ANB being not good enough, scoreless quarter (happens all the time that one), zero clean chains of play, comical misfortune...yada yada yada...we all know the drill.

As crap as I have ever seen us in recent times. 

Decimated by injury, decimated by lack of confidence, decimated by lack of talent, decimated by coaching strategy, decimated by lack of crowd numbers and decimated by completely [censored] up a massive opportunity to shine when we had our chance this year.  I wasn't as bullish as others at the start of the year.  At worst 8-9 wins I thought.  At best 12-13. 

But this [censored].?

Anyone else foaming in anticipation at Goodwins member video after the game?

 

“Another tough night tonight guys. There are parts of our game that are slowly coming together but there’s still lots to improve upon. We’re frustrated. You’re frustrated. But we are working really, really hard, and we’ll be doing everything we can to get a win for you to finish the season.”

Hogan has not been sighted all game

Yeah was waiting for it. So all the players we picked are shooting the lights out at Casey? No they aren't, yet they've been picked nonetheless. The options are Preuss and Keilty, obviously. Both massive busts this year (as are the ins we named anyway), yet either of these players would've kept some structure to the team.

It really is a no-brainer that one of them had to play. For mine it's Preuss as there's more upside and a relief for Gawn. In fact, Gawn could've played forward and Preuss to ruck in a familiar role, which he is actually smashing at Casey.

It does kind of look that way, it’s like their interest moves up and down throughout the game. But then the moment the ball gets out that’s where it all just drops and in their own mind they think “here we go again”. 

But our players are just super lazy right now, I understand things really suck but how about a little bit of personal pride?

Gold, and probably more accurate than you might have hoped.

our players are always looking for the easy out, instead of moving the ball quickly they are looking to switch or go sideways, often backwards. three or four kicks back and forth before we turn the ball over usually where we started or closer to their goal. they do not play as a team, they do not move away from each other to take their players away so as to open up territory for players down the field to run into. we are are rabble without a cause.

I bet your around 90% accurate there. Its really a spin of the wheel of ****ty cliches at this point anyway.

    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

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
