Saw our game in Perth in round 9. We put in a good show for over half the game but as you say when WC went up a gear it was all just too hard for us. We more already less gave up the season then and there,  That game summed up our whole shocker of a season.

Might have helped if Goodwin reviewed the preliminary and gave them some direction.

Might have helped if Goody had tried to implement a Power style approach on the day, beautifuly executed only a few weeks before for an unexpected win.

Anyways ....2020 awaits

My Outrage is how pathetic my club is

It’s all too hard. 

Mid you knew what I have been through in 56 years, then you would understand why 

But I know that would be beneath you....

In fact you ridicule those who show disdain for it

It would take a dull brain to not see what it takes to win a flag and not compare where we are to where we need to get to. Each to there own though, ignorance and denial helps some sooth the pain.

you miss the point....not surprising

it's the boring, repetitious, masochistic, humourless, unoriginal drivel i'm sick of

either come up with something original or a least with some humour or cease trolling

They’ll drop back down some day, it’ll be a spectacle seeing how their supporters act when it happens. Microwave sales will go through the roof.

Dusty put in a stellar last quarter to clinch the medal but the kid gets in the picture.

What a debut and he was very influential.  His disposal skills and decision making seemed to inspire his veteran teammates.

It was as if they didn't want to be shown up.

The Pickett debut is one hell of a story.

people here say "brand" and "culture" doesn't mean anything. tell that to Hardwick. Rebranded this team, new coaching team, brought everyone together. 

Who ever said that brand (ie game style) and culture don't mean anything?

Goodwin banged on about brand all last year and I, and many others, bang on about game style all the time.

Such a condescending poster at times, mate.

Brand is a marketing term, and meaningless, culture is another thing all together and we do not have it  Hardwick is a balanced person, Goody not so much.

Problem with AFL over last few years the final has been a blow out. Boring to watch and unfortunately most switched of half way through the third. 

Unfortunately this game has no more growth as much as they push the life out of it in non footy states.

If you get cornered by any Tigres supporters, just tell em that was the most boring Grand Final ever.........then tell em again when they start whinging.......

Just tell them that they've only just levelled us for flags. Get back to us when they surpass us. (yes, I know, that could happen next year)

The WAFL is a gold mine for indigenous talent. 

Staggering that we haven't drafted a player from WA since Hogan in 2012. Who is our WA scout? Does anyone know?

That said, we haven't had a first rounder pick since 2015 when we landed Oliver (and to a lesser extent, Weideman).

And fair enough too.  If playing in a GF victory is one way of gaining club life membership,  it's been a while between drinks prior to 2017 for the Tigers.

How many players have actually played in a GF victory in the history of the sport over 160+ years?  Maybe 1700 factoring in those who played in multiple flag winning sides.

No sour grapes from me either.  To the victors go the spoils.  And Richmond are the benchmark. 

And if they can do it,  we can do it.  I'm a forever optimist with regards to the future.

But you don’t need an early pick, think Ryan, Pickett, Kelly, Stack.....all overlooked in drafts

Good to catch up today, @Return to Glory

With Burgess on board, top 4 next year, mate. You gotta believe!

Enjoy Tokyo. If you can, visit an old haunt of mine, Inokashira Park. A welcome oasis in the concrete jungle.

    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

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
