The complete apathy I have for this club is near equivalent to that of the Neeld years. 

I’m feeling so lost and low right now. 

Even with all of the injuries we have, there is something stinking so badly at this club.

2 teams with nothing to play for and we get smashed. 

Says it all really. 

No game plan, no pride, no heart and no hope. Awesome work dees.

Pert and Goodwin need to [censored] off and reinstate some semblance of competence to this club. We're beyond a laughing stock -- we're just utterly irrelevant.

Missed the game. Just checked the final scores. This is my guess how we played.

Had more inside 50’s.

Gave away easy gimmie goals.

Gawn dominated but midfield pantsed.

Missed easy set shots.

Captains played like spuds. 

Consistently turned the ball over.

mindless bombing into forward line.

Am I wrong with my guesses?

Yep - I agree. Something seriously wrong.

I have said that all year and certain people on here have attacked me for it. 

Something has seriously stunk since Preliminary Final Day last year, something apart from what we have been told. 

Board Level, Club Level, Football Dept. could be any of those 3....

My favourite part was when the players just decided to start trying to take hangers at the end (Harmes especially). I guess they have busted their guts up to this point so they were due a little bit of fun.

Liked the Lever acquisition but he has zero ability to compete in a one on one. Nathan Jones has been a great servant but he is no longer AFL standard and he has gotten very lazy. Time to move on. The kicking for goal I have no words for. Viney maybe just isn't a good league footballer. The overall ability to compete in the air is an embarrassment to everyone linked to the club.

Ive never seen so many players that disinterested in playing a game of footy in my life. Period. Not that I can blame them, Goodwin looks as if he hasnt had a clue since the qualifying final last year...

But they do. The question is where and why has it disappeared.

That kids bleeds red and blue. What has happened to this group?

It certainly looks like the coach has lost them, or vice versa.    

Either way it will be another ugly and depressing (for us all here) year in 2020 unless there are massive changes in staff, in game plan (assuming we have actually had one) and in passion and dedication.

Has any team ever wasted inside 50s as much as MFC?

Tonight 53 point, 9 goal loss, with ten (10) more I 50s.

How bad is our structure?    Goody, please answer.

Lucky we spent two trade periods turfing out our entire forward line while recruiting overpaid key defenders that cost us a fortune in draft currency and can't even get on the park. Sheer brilliance from the geniuses in list management.

The commentators are still running the company line of excuses for the MFC? Why??? Why won't anyone just call this club out for what it is? I guess it's because we are a nice play thing for other clubs in the competition, and you wouldn't want to disrupt that. If you're struggling and want an opponent that you can beat on pure effort, circle the Demons on the fixture. It's a nice fallback for other clubs.

Agree.   Goodwin (should be renamed Badloss) talks of loss of connection between mids and forwards - he has yet to admit total loss of connection between the club and those who prop it up, us supporters.

Not with Jones and Viney there.

Another thing that killed us is the extended goal square kick in rule. The number of times Sydney got it past the wing was staggering, on the other hand we can't seem to get it beyond 60m. This club is looking like it's on death row, next year is make or break and I have zero faith in this group of leaderless half-wits.

Harmes tries to break a tackle in the last, gets pinged and 3 Sydney blokes fall on top of him letting him know all about it and not a single teammate steps in. Yeah, Harmes stuffed up but someone step the hell in and help. 

Sydney had a pack mentality tonight, don’t even know what to say about us anymore.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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
