Players can have a break CS, no problem. I just don’t like seeing the Captain on the other side of the world, looking like a Clown whilst the Finals are on. 

Looks very amateurish to me

Well would you prefer him to start his travels after the finals, and so be another four weeks away from starting preseason?

I don’t care that Jack is not at the finals. 

Why is it a bad look? I would suspect most non finals players are on their break, as mandated by the AFL.

I would be pretty sure most Bombers players will be on their break, as soon as exit interviews are completed early this week just like the loser of Giants v Dogs.

Most players need their break, unlike supporters.

You made your point, that you don’t care. Fine

i don’t like the look of our Captain stuffing his face into an 🍦 ice cream in Rome, after the year we all endured, whilst The Finals are on. 

I would prefer him to be in the Crowd, soaking in the pressure of tonight’s game, then go away. 

But if he has to be in Rome now, do it quietly and not all over instagram

We disagree. No big deal

Is the footy still going.....how odd

Almost a non-event in this household - been that way for quite a few weeks, now - off o/seas in minutes. If we do not get rid of Goodwin, OMac (x 2) and Viney, the levels of current interest will not change, just like the pre-determined rejection of an MFC Membership for next year. Depressing, disloyal, selfish and morally gnarled as it might be, I feel justified after supporting this Club since 1956 (my earliest memory of 'supporter-status') to only one premiership back in '64; but, it is more than a mere premiership, isn't it?

I would have hoped The Captain of our team would have WANTED to be in the Crowd, watching Finals and learning whatever he can take out of it for next year. Considering how our year completely fell apart. 

Tonight’s game will be flat out. Neither side will want to play Meth Coke

Go and watch his 2 finals matches against Geelong and Hawks last year I think he knows about finals intensity 

Last night would have taught him SFA

Don't bomb in high and slow to the Eagles defence

You need to apply pressure at the ball carrier to prevent the Eagles from playing their kicking game

Essendon lack inside bulls and until they address it they won't be any good in September 

Don't play to many injured players

Cats at it again. Stanley out, Menegola in. A ruck for a midfielder.

At what point do they start getting called on this?

When Chris Scott is asked pre-game why the change, his answer is the conditions, we thought we were too tall in the conditions.

Have I completely misunderstood the reasons behind the emergencies? I thought it was for injuries, not tactical changes???

Good advertisment for compulsory clash jumpers.

Okay in the close ups but the moment the cameras zoom out they are almost identical.

And I can't stand Bruce the fawner. You think that Pendlebury was Black Caviar.

The roar for Stephenson by Collingwood fans is puzzling. The guy was placing bets on himself and his own team for games he was playing in.

10/0 inside 50s

If it were us it would still be a scoreless draw 

And FFS we are made to use “clash jumpers” v Essendon and Adelaide. Yet these two get away with it.

I’m really struggling watching on the TV.

How could the two clubs not want to fix this??

    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

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w
