Twin Captains have anything to do with this madness?

2 Camps...?

greatest load of [censored] [censored] the game of footy has ever seen.  when Dickwin announced there'd be two captains I was like: 'oh [censored], here we go, some new age, power pointing presenting, data collecting, done a bunch of leadership course [censored] degrees [censored], that probably can't coach a finger up his [censored]'  

Our very own Brendan [censored] Bolton.

He's a true front runner.
And Viney just appears to be a smaller version.

Couldn't ask much more of Viney tonight: second for disposals and clearances, first for tackles (9) and I50's. He's at least trying.

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....

Um, yep.  Something wrong there.

We played Petracca in the ruck? Jeez that’s another one for the tanking thread

“Fail to plan; plan to fail”.  Another game lost at the selection table  

Was this the master coach’s shrewd plan when Max needed a well earned rest - play CP5 in the ruck??

And Preuss, whilst not a great player by any means, would have made mince meat of the Swans’ rucks, AND have given us a solitary tall forward option to at least hold their taller defenders accountable - but even though he won 1001 hit outs at VFL last week, .....?!

Fair enough but I was alluding to their similarities as players.
Both run headlong into tackles thinking they're big enough to break through, but aren't and can't.

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.

We've won 5 games, 3 by less than a goal and play like this - then you post absolute garbage. Pathetic excuses can't cover up what a shambolic clusterf*** this club is.

After watching that presser I couldnt feel less confident than I do right now.

You have the players Goody?

Sure as **** didnt look like it to me. We were abysmal against a team coming off 5 loses.

If he is in the seat come round 1 next year the torch absolutely has to be on him from rd 1.

No ifs, ands or buts.

He did play well despite his inaccuracy and it was a bad loss amongst many this season. To feel like that there must be something more bothering him.

Totally miss the point. Our list is abysmal and injuries are a pathetic excuse for 50 years of failure.

Yeah bit like how Richmond and West Coast are down the bottom of the ladder for contested possession.

Most overrated stat in the comp and both those teams are proving that.

Besides handballing to a teammate 5 meters away and whinge at every single umpire decision, he is simply not a player that hurts opposition at all. It's no wonder teams dont tag him, plus he is nothing short of a arrogant sook.

Needs a reality check and his ego set back in place over the pre season.

Were they on Holiday mode tonight?

I certainly  need a holiday away from watching this crap what an insipid performance. They are really doing my head in.

Sorry boys no time off for you just do the hard yards for the preseason and let me have a holiday well away from the lot of you.

I need to book myself for some brain therapy as to help me forget this disastrous season..

VINEY is more interested in reposting Instagram stories from his wedding than captaining this football club. He is a spoilt [censored] that hasn’t never had to work hard to get where he is. He fooled everyone with his aggression at the ball early in his career and the whole football world now sees that he is poorly skilled and at his size, is no longer a physical presence. His leadership skills are non existent and his appointment as co captain drove a wedge between the old firm and his crew. It’s plain and simple. He is a prickly customer with poor interpersonal skills and cannot articulate anything real. He is not the captain and should move aside next year

Your opinions on statistics does not give you the right to call a champion player for our club a f.log.

Possessions yes, disposals no: eg handballs at the feet of a player, kicks along the ground., goals missed.

Did what I thought was the right thing and made an effort to take myself to the MCG on a cold and rainy (at times) night. I was not rewarded with the same effort from the team I have supported for so long. They looked like they had all mentally checked out of this season already and were planning what they were going to do on their holidays. 

Thank you Melbourne. Thanks for ruining my night and the whole year. Merry Christmas everybody.

There appears to be absolutely no pride in most of these players apart from Gawn, Lewis, Fritsch, Melksham, Viney and Frost. Brayshaw kicked it long straight to opposition players meters in the clear on their own. Has the concussion addled his brain more than we supposed? Jones must retire, he’s utterly lost it.

Normally at the footy I’m yelling and screaming and giving it to umps or whatever, tonight I was just embarrassed, it was the most inept performance I’ve seen in a long long long time, I can’t even remember being this embarrassed before. Neeld years we were young and list was inept, we have some very good players at the moment, few that have been all Australians, one that came third in Brownlow last year. What the hell Goodwin has done to these players I just don’t know, there’s at least 6 in tonight’s team that won’t be there next year but they’re playing with no confidence no heart no nothing, it has to be the coach, he doesn’t get them playing for him, they’re pathetic, half the time tonight I had my head in my hands, just could not watch, they’re a fifth rate team, they need a new coach and a total cleanout!

That was complete rubbish. Most of the players were not even bothering to look as if they cared. They get paid to play the game they should take pride in doing the job a well a possible.

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    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.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    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

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. 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. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as
