I haven't seen any images on social media or in the mainstream media of any mad monday demons celebrations so perhaps they were cautioned not to put it out there.

Well at least they had the decency to keep it low key and in house. 

How bad does it look from Gold Coast parading around like there celebrating a terrific season. Absolutely embarrassing, they don't give a rats toss bag up there.

It seems as though we have remained inconspicuous this year...

Saw on ch7 news tonight they had wacky wednesday where they had to dress up as cricketer's. Why does everyone have to dress up now. I know it's a bit of fun but can't they just go somewhere and dress normally? 

Geelong was the club that did the dress ups really well and now everyone is trying to copy. 

Anyway Im sure Maxy kept him self nice ahead of tonights AA awards.

Bit of fun / team bonding after a long year, probably much needed.

Dressing up as Aussie cricketers?

Sharing the skills and feelings of snatching defeat from the very jaws of victory?

How MFC.

Just saw Brayshaw and Frosty in Elwood, both look very low key today.

How did Elwood feel about that?

The idea of dressing up was a deliberate plan to divert players from using Mad Monday purely as an exercise in getting heavily inebriated with all the risks to the club that such behaviour entails. And, largely, it's worked.

If I were a footballer, I'd hate the very idea of a Mad Monday. But I'm not a footballer; I haven't had to watch what I eat and drink for the best part of 10 months and I don't have a perenially sore body to go with it. And I see Kane Cornes doesn't like it...so I'm very happy for our players to have a Mad Monday or Wacky Wednesday if that's what they want. Irrespective of the result of the season they've earned the right.

Anyone who says the boys don't deserve a mad Monday are a-holes of the highest order. 

Yes, we didn't get many results this year - but these blokes work incredibly hard all year, and to say they don't deserve to blow off some steam at the end of the year and have a laugh is reserved only for those who think the worlds revolves around them. 

You've never had a bad year in your career? Maybe you should exclude yourself from the end of year party when the boss puts his corporate credit card on the bar when you do.

Let it out boys, have fun, big summer ahead.

Nothing wrong with the players meeting up and having a few quite beers after a long season they are entitled to that.

Pleasing to hear without all the cross dressing antics and instgram pics splattered across every social media platform.

Max was running laps of New York 2 years ago during his break which led to his amazing 2018.

Him cycling around Europe might do equally as good.

No Jumbo. We the Members need a break and regroup. 

The Players can start with Burgess on Sunday morning as far as i am concerned. 

2019 was completely wasted 

Zurich and Jaguar must be thrilled

Great points.

Some harsh truths need to be shared with the players.

Was going to add some thoughts but needed to be separated from previous response.

These are young blokes who have been insulated from a lot of reality. That's fine, but they need to aware of their fortunate position, the challenges included and their responsibilities.

They are a young and talented group who have shown that they can play outstanding passages. They must now sustain their efforts, reward their supporters including sponsors and realise their potential.

They must play as a group and give 100% all the time, aware that they will be replaced by someone in the squad who will replace them if they do or can not. This should not be seen as threatening but a fact to insure their own success.

Its a challenge for the coach to use the whole squad and come up with structures or patterns that use all the squad at appropriate times. Training should be at a tempo and intensity so that the structures and patterns are instinctive in every player.  

I would like to see a retention of "chaos ball" but add "churn" where players constantly revolve around both creating space and covering opponents. Not matched against a specific player Or defending space but creating confusion in opponents by moving to and covering opportunities. This should be instinctive and can only work by knowing your teammates  capabilities intimately. Know who is faster or slower than their opponent, who will kick it short or long, who will handpass , who will turn, be flexible through knowledge of each other, support each other and reap team results.

Thats all for now.

    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

    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
