6. Gawn - what more can the man do

5. Viney - an outstanding game on Cunnington

4. Fritsch - a super forward game

3. Frost - great work on the probable Coleman medallist - a soft goal from a downfield free and then another as a result of Oliver's 50 m penalty.

2. Lewis - despite his bad turnover near the end still uses the ball better than just about everyone in our team.

1. Oliver - lots of it but lots wasted.

MAX -  You won't see a better game from a ruckman

Fritsch - Permanently up forward next year

Harmes - Plenty of it and showed a cool head for the most part.

Oliver -   Ball magnet as usual ( some questionable disposal though)

Frost - Did the business on Ronald Mc Donald head.

Petracca

6. Gawn (outstanding leadership)

5. Frost (great job on Brown)

4. Oliver (prolific although efficiency poor)

3. Fritsch (always a forward)

2. Viney (disposal a worry)

1. Stretch (best efficiency on the ground)

6.Gawny - take a bow, dominant BOG performance  3 Chas votes, AA 22 sewn up and Bluey all sealed today

5. Fritsch- good 4 quarter performance, good leading patterns, good link up ball use and forward threat all day

4.Viney - toss of the coin here between he and Frost who both won their battles against 2 of Norths best 3 players and by taking Cunnington out of the game helped us win the clearances and limit opportunities for Brown 

3. Frost see above,  did the job on dangerous forward and cost him the Coleman 

2. Trac - set game up early, made good decisions and was good around midfield in bursts

1.Clarry - I didn't like his defensive running which marks him down but finds the ball, important at the clearances and just so important to our midfield dominance today

6006 Gawn - an absolute giant of a game 

5 Frost - beat the Coleman medallist 

4 -Fritsch  why did Goody even think he should be played in the backline

3 Harmes Gives 100%+

2 Viney A captains game

1 Stretch. Now can he stay injury free.

6.  Captain Gawn

5.  Viney - might have found a niche, keeping in mind Cunny is slooow too.

4.  Fritschkreig almost a blitzkreig!

3.  Frosty quite a show on Bob

2.  Tracc VG in splutters & spurts 

1.  Clarry (hoping he starts looking beyond his immediate vision / circle as first option & clear to outside ball users more often in 2020)

HM to Harmes...worked his butt off and one of the few effective two way running mids.  Demerit points for the inexplicable stops and props that may have cost us a shot or two at winning the game.

Who else but Max? No one!

4: Viney, I still love you even if others don’t! (and, anyone who owns a Bernese Mountain Dog must be OK)!

3: Fritsch, really becoming fun to watch!

I didn't get to watch the game but listened to about two-thirds on SEN. According to the callers (Peter Donegan, Terry Wallace and Tristan Fernanda), Gawn was not just clearly the best player, but also played one of the most dominant games of the year. Demonland agrees.

So can anyone who saw the game explain why The Age in its votes, where they give five players votes out of ten, gave Higgins BOG with 8 and Max equal second BOG with 7? It just seems inexplicable to me based on the radio coverage, both that he wasn't BOG and also only got 7 out of 10.

He has been treated very harshly in the media awards this year.  A few weeks back when he got 5 votes in the coaches award against St Kilda, Warwick Green didn't list him in the best and said that Marshall beat him. The Herald Sun has been even harder on him, but at least they gave him the three this week. He'll get 3 Brownlow votes - nothing surer, but I think if Grundy was given 8 for Friday night, against an underdone Bellchambers then Gawn was at least a 9 for his effort against a fully fit and very in form opponent.

That Brayshaw could finish 5th shows you just how bad we were this year. 

Coming off a top 3 brownlow finish his season was probably not far behind TMacs in terms of disappointment of the year .

I'd be staggered if he gets 1 vote this year

    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
