POSTGAME: Rd 23 vs Kangaroos

Recommended Posts

Wow, that so sums up our year.  We had moments.  What I found interesting (read frustrating), was that most players had good moments, and then had absolute crap ones.  Lever - marks it and pumps it out on the full, twice.  Jones - delivers into 50 beautifully, and then does that rancid kick out that costs us the goal.  Angus - does some great things, then some [censored].  Only Maxy and Fritsch can hold their heads high, for a full game effort.

ANB hitting the post was so us 2019.

Time to hang up the Boots Jones..

He can't b captain next yr in fact he will need 2 spend time @ Casey or better still retire. Would rather Bernie Vince back than him.

Is there any chance ANB can ever kick straight from 30 metres out??

I am one of ANB harshest critics but the kick was from 50 and was a reasonable effort which just missed.    Melksham puts his hands up saying he should have passed to him but he wasn't free enough for that option.

We seemed to find new ways to turn it over coming out of defensive 50 in the last for a while there. Amazing

Glad the year is over

If there was any doubt about two rucks making the AA team again this year that was completely put to rest by Gawn's performance against the third best ruck in the comp.  The guy is amazing.

This list is not going to be able to execute any game plan until there is a significant improvement in the basic skills. Pre season to be spent with a football in hand100% of the time, even during the time trials.

Fritta and Gawn were amazing today, but too many B graders.

Seen enough of Stretch Wagner Spargo ANB and JKH 

Jones one more year ands that’s about it.

The players you mention here just seem to come in and out, in and out of the side and never seem to have an impact. Surely its time to clear out the dead wood.

Jones has experience in losing teams

it is not all his fault, but he is a contributor. 

It is time he moved on...

Barring disastrous injuries next year, Jones should end his career at Casey.

Thanks for your service. Here's your life membership.

half way through the last we were kicking at 36%. 36%!!!!!!  Lever had about 3 in a row. You Cant win if you cant frikn kick. Preuss missing from 10 and ANB missing from 30 in the last and 1.7 in the last also.... just about sums the whole thing up. 

That being said....fritsch is beginning to really look the goods. Something to be hopeful for.

Our season is over, sweet relief! Now we can look to 2020 knowing it should/has to get better (it has to, right?!), and at the very least can't get worse!

Commentators were drooling over Grundy’s game last night all telecast (it was a great game btw), but Max showed today why he is the greatest in my view. What a professional with a never die attitude! Just remember his game today and we might get through the pain a little bit easier.

As far as the Coleman goes, I hope Cameron kicks 12 against the Suns tonight, got sick of the constant cheering for Ben10.

Postive from today.... almost 3 quarters of better ball movement/accuracy from more players....in the game.

Until the last where our energy /tank ran out? Skills dropped off a cliff and we reverted back to chaos crash bash style ...and lost.

Dead set Jones anyone would know that kick needed to go down the line and we expect our boys to follow this bloke? 

They said on the radio there was no one down the line to kick to and gawn was trying to get across.  

Also do we blame Oliver  for giving away that undisciplined 50?

    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
