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.

    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. 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

    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
