With all due respect to the Gold Coast Suns and Tony Cochring, if you're delisting a player like Jarryd Lyons, you can't be given a priority pick.

Yep and further this kid was on Melbourne Radar and we inexplicably overlooked him! His Dad was Marty Lyons whose first game of AFL VS Hawks netted him 4 goals I think on debut! Kid can play!

Great to see Stefan Martin give a great performance in the ruck. Though he had less than average opposition as Geelong rely on Dangerfield and Co to win the clearances the hard way he changed his game up in the last 15 minutes in the stop start finale. He mixed it up beautifully with great tap work, out muscling his opponents and powerful knock ons to give his players the advantage to charge back from 18 points down. GAWN TAKE NOTE!  Also where once he was labeled as being a bit soft, he is now a tackling machine and 15 of his 16 possessions were contested. Fagan has turned  him into an awesome weapon.

Derwayne is out of control with Carlton love today.

I saw the last 10 or so minutes of this match and was disgusted by the pro Carlton commentary.

I still can't understand that we let Howe go.  I get he held out for more coin wanted to play mote time forward etc but he was coming on nicely and just maturing.  Who cares just find the $.  Couldve freed up some cap by delisting the likes of O-Mac & ANB etc.

We put so much work in then let him wander down the road to star and sure up the Pies backline.

Great X factor mark/intercept player and we have very few now who can muster a contested mark.

Crazy club that just doesn't get it in so many ways.

I am more disgusted with their desire to win unlike us.

Why would you hang on to an intercept defender when you can give up two first rounders for one with bad knees?

@Rusty Nails - 'Mate'  - it's never the club as a whole per se  - it's individuals decision making at the time... it's a fallacy to mix the two.

Im pretty sure it was more of him wanting to leave and get success somewhere else. He grew up a pies supporter and remember bucks promised to play him forward. The day he went to collingwood he went on and on how excited he was to play for the club he grew up barracking for and his family were rapt. Nothing would have kept him.

In his last couple of seasons with us he played like he didn’t give a Faarque anyway. Would have fitted in nicely in our yesterday’s side. He was a lost cause.

Well, after enduring (half) a gut-wrenching game last night, had the pleasure of a family outing to the G today. Very impressed with how both sides went about it. Ratten had the Saints clearance machine purring and their ball movement was good too. Carlton’s big men just that bit better, so they got the chocolates.

We were deplorable last night with nothing much to play for, no excuse I know but what is going on with Port? Really struggling to get a score on the board. God help us next week in Hobart!

To be fair, I think he had a man crush on Figgy and the Chins.

Two years ago, every conceivable result conspired against us to ensure we missed finals. 

This year, every conceivable result has conspired to ensure Essendon make the finals.

    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

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
