Round 22 Non MFC Games

Recommended Posts

Melbourne is at least consistent. We’re consistently bad unlike Essendon and North who are [censored] one week and perfect the next.

What is going on? Nth kick 1 goal for the whole match last week, tonight they come across a team who has been in good form and can suddenly kick 22 goals and win by 86 points. Gee the 2 SA teams have had a shocker. 

Ugh so it looks like essenscum are going to play finals. My god this weekend has really turned to [censored]. I guess our best hope it they lose week 1 meaning they still haven't won a final for so ling.

Seriously is Ross Lyon going to cop some heat to?

Lol, Crows and Port both on exactly 103% and Crows get 8th at the moment because....anyone know? Head to head is 1-1 with Port having the greater winning margin between the 2.

Brown and Larkey 15 goals between them. I hope the airports are fogbound for the entire next  week and we forfeit or our flight gets highjacked to North Korea.

So who will people be barracking for in the finals? Seriously if the dogs can get in I will be going for them but I'm not a fan of any melbourne teams in there. Personally I could handle a WC/Brisbane Gf. The interstate team can then fly home, we don't have to hear a lot about it and we can put this season behind us forever. 

anyway back to the cricket. It's a shame some of our leaders don't look to see how Steve Smith plays for his country. Yes I know what happened a year ago wasn't great leadership but the way he has stood up in these tests has been great to watch.

yep, it's almost at the point based on his output in a pretty poor dockers side that our second round pick for him would be good value

Essendon losing stoppages 30-18, clearances 41-26 hitouts 54-15 and free kicks 23-7. These are stats from Jon Ralph's twitter. How are freo losing this? Also freo lead inside 50's 54-45. I know they are inaccurate tonight but come on.

Gee it would be nice to skip the country for the next month and a bit. This finals series is not going to be enjoyable. Full of teams I cannot stand. Ugh

One of the best send offs we have seen in awhile. Fair enough to. Who would really be able to carry big Sandilands off.

Look at the way Nought play for pride...

When did we finish a season like that?

it has been many years. 

What were your feelings regarding North last week SWYL? When they kicked one goal for the entire match? Or regarding Essendon, Port, the Giants and Adelaide and in recent weeks when they've copped heavy losses - teams with something actually on the line? Are they more or less pea-hearted than the MFC?

That’s why we will offer a first round pick for him. We’ll keep the second rounder for Hill and both will spend the majority of 2020 in rehab.

We should also be chasing the only bloke on Brisbane’s list who’s injured at the moment.

Cracking games today. Richmond v WC will go either way, I hope the doggies can get up and knock the crows of 8th and it's Roughy's farewell game. A shame its at 4:40 at marvel against GC but you would hope the hawks fans will show up to farewell a great player of there club.

If a team can beat West Coast they will win the premiership. Are strong all over the ground. Seem to just pick guns at will decade after decade. How do they do it? Evenness in the comp is a myth.

    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
