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. 

Par for the course

There are no adjectives left to describe how I feel about what has been dished out this season. Surely there has to be a response from management because membership will be decimated, as it should, unless radical changes are made.

Given the team we had on the park, I'm just not sure what people were expecting. Seriously. We had a midget forward line with 2 actual forwards in it, is the lack of conversion from I50's a surprise?

People should stop looking for clever reasons as to why we're performing badly. We have 17 players unavailable, including some really key players at both ends of the ground, and we're putting what is largely a VFL-quality team on the park. Surprise surprise, we're losing - and at times, losing badly.

Is it possible to train/instill pride during the off season?

Hope so but it is huge ask, AND would require firstly admitting that the game plan, such as it is, is seriously flawed and needs a total rejig.

Then we need some hard [censored] Clarkson like coaching with NO excuses accepted.

Could be done if the troops really want it.

Wont hold my breath though, as I don't want to suffocate.

Based on tonight's performance, I can easily see a 3 figure loss next week.

That definitely doesn't help, but the manner in which we just give up is the most embarrassing thing. Teams who roll over like don't win flags.

Why the hell would the kids continually bomb it in then? It's either the stupid game plan or the players are just plain lacking intelligence, probably both.

Calling young blokes this all night on a Friday from your computer says more about you than them.

Who Oliver and Alex Neal Bullen?

[censored] off mate, young blokes are the likes of Dunkley, Chandler, Spargo. 19 year olds who are still finding their way in the system. Did not once pot them at all. In fact I gave praise to Chandler that at 3 qtr time he was showing our more experience players because he was leading our tackling count. Get ya [censored] facts right

Oliver and ANB are borderline nearing 100 games mark and should be be playing like they taking the game to the next level.

The Oliver spray on Fritsch is one of the worse things I've seen from this year. Nothing but a selfish brat is Oliver.

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? 

 

 

 

Gawn did not dominate.  

His worst game for the year

Pert walks into the club like he owns the place, thinking he's on a dead set winner, low and behold he's bitten off more than he can chew. 

He's way over his head. Running Collingwood was a stroll in the park.

He's a down hill skier, needs everything to be smooth sailing to perform. 

Not an ounce of ticker in him.

The unrest from the supporters are at Neeld like levels.

Who is going to speak for this utter poo.

I’ve been saying for ages that this is worse than the Neeld says, said it half a season ago. In the Neeld says we had pretty much no good players. 

We have a lot of decent players in this team and. We are not much better off, in fact I rate this worse. Neeld teams had nigh on zero skills. This team should be much much better. That they’re not is a disgrace.

If we were showing any desperation to compete and win then fine. We are getting out tackled every single week. These guys haven't even seen what might happen if they genuinely compete in the physicality stakes.

I'm not kidding when I say the fact that there are still people in the MFC community who think what we are being served up is acceptable is the absolute root of everything that is wrong with this football club.

Anyone who actually had the mental toughness to watch the whole game - 

1. How did Chandler go?  I  see he lead the field in tackles (9 on debut, equal with Viney and 7 more than the other co-captain).

2. Did Max get any ruck relief at all?

3. What went wrong with Bailey Fritsch - looked ok at the start?  Injured?

Cool mate, criticize their football all you want, all of them deserve it tonight and most of the year, I just don't see why it's necessary to hurl personal insults at them on the internet. It's not impressing anyone.

I’m 33, which might be young to some supporters on this page, and started following us in 1996. This is without a doubt the worst season I’ve experienced. The disappointment after so much hype is just absolutely crushing.

Something really stinks with this club. There’s something rotting and I really hope this internal review yields something.

Lets wake up.

How many of those would be "best 22" and i hate that term.

Jetta, May and Tmac? Thats 3.

AVB cant get on the park.

Weeds has shown less than last year.

Hannan less than Weeds.

And the rest are either kids, plodders or are cooked.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues.
