Chris, you're coaching an AFL match. Enough with the cringeworthy theatrics every time something doesn't go your way.

Geelong gifted a goal there. Blatantly touched by multiple players, should not have been paid a mark. 

And two Hawkins hands in the back before he took the “mark”.

A year ago this week we put the hawks out of the finals. How good a night that was. 

Anyway that was a shocking kick for goal by Danger then, for a champion player who has been around long enough. Should have done better.

No. Should have done the team thing and not just pinged away.

And last year we knocked the cats out a week earlier.
And now we're still watching them and we got nowhere near it.
Does my head in.

Should be but I will anticipate a fine as the victim still breathes. 

Christian will say accidental, low impact, in play even though it was intentional, high and off the play.

And since eye gouging has the go ahead, striking by a key 🐱 in a final will be permitted. 

That was selfish. Should have gone for the top of the square. 

You should apply for a seat on the MRP Mono!

This commentary could not be more biased if they tried. The sooner Seven lose the AFL broadcast rights, the better.

Ugh now either richmond or the cats will be in the big one. West coast I was relying on you to knock the cats out. 

If it's a collingwood v geelong/richmond grand final then I may leave the state. 

So now Im relying on a brisbane or GWS to somehow win. I hope it's brisbane but I can't see them able to beat collingwood next week. 

This is all hawthorns fault. They stuffed everything up when they beat west coast and west coast didn't get the top 4 and gifted collingwood a double chance. Yes I know west coast should have beaten them but ugh now I have to pin my hopes on brisbane or even the giants. 

What a pathetic last quarter by the eagles. No goals, not 1 and they were meant to be stronger this year with Nic Nat, gaff and Shepard in there who ddin't play in last years gf.

Eagles fell apart under pressure 

Hawkins must get 2 weeks for hitting Schofield off the ball in the head 

afl will be soft to bypass that hit but it’s likely. Greene gauges Bonts eyes and gets nudda but a flap of $$$ to pay

LOL.  We are eternal optimists at the Demons.  Next year I will be in Africa for a month or two but timing it to be back for the finals.  And will be renewing 2 Redlegs memberships. 

Maybe, I should say Demon Addicts rather than Demon Optimists!!:blink:

Incidental contact, low impact, look away.

Amazed how danger does little for 3qtr but lifts in the last.  Why doesn't he do it earlier?

He’s either unfit or lazy or both. A couple of times when the opposition marked the ball or were paid a free near him and a team mate was on the mark he’d take their position on the mark making them run backwards.

Well it’s mayhem here in Perth. 

Supporters have pulled out the ‘Kerr, Cousins, Fletcher, Mainwaring, Gardiner, Rioli’ code of conduct booklet and are rioting in the street with glass bbq’s in hand.

Are they asking how come they could not kick a goal in that final quarter and just fell apart?

I'm not happy about Sellwood being allowed to stay on the ground covered in blood.  It is arguable that we missed the top four last   season  because  Max  was dismissed  for the last minute at Geelong with the merest speck of blood on his lip.

Was are people so impressed with Selwood just because he bleeds on the softest of contacts. He had a good game but only 5 contested possessions. He was smashed last year by the demons in finals and gave away undisciplined free kick which lost them the game. But that gets no attention.

Will feel very dirty next Friday night. As much as I can’t stand Geelong I will be cheering them on against the Tigers. Hoping they somehow get over the line. Uncle and Aunty Richmond along with the cousins have become unbearable since their flag. Will not attend another family gathering if Richmond win the flag again. Yuk!!!

    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
