Can't wait to see O Mac bursting out of defence with the ball next year. I'm sure his delivery will be so much better than Frosty.

I’ll have another listen, thoughts that’s what I heard. I like Garry, it was just a comment. I do find it funny that you thought that was an attack though, how thin skinned we are these days.

Pretty clearly misquoting something to try and imply Lyon doesn't want to be considered a Melbourne person is an attempt to have a crack at him. I'll take your word for it that's what you thought you heard originally though.

Re: Pick 3 - haven't had a first round in years. good quality in top 10. would look at deal with pick 3 to split pick.

Interesting caveat on that...he said for 2 picks in the top 10.

...but happy to go with pick 3.

That's the most interesting point from the interview.  

Who could offer us 2 top 10 picks?

Love how Josh Mahoney is so matter of fact about things, unlike half the other footy managers.

I am very happy with attempts to improve our line-up with Langdon (wingman and great runner), Tomlinson (depth and tall swingman - not keen on him playing wing though) , Elliott (playing out of goalsquare, although he's not across the line yet) plus by the sounds of it either a quality kicking half-back in Hayden Young or a hard-working, good kicking small in Caleb Serong with pick three.

But ultimately our list management team (not sure how much input Todd Viney has on it this year) has set up Goody for either a nice bounce back or an alarming fall should the moves not win the fans over.

Part of that reason is that the two most vilified regular players at the club (ANB and Oscar) are both still at the club and a fan favourite in Sam Frost has been effectively shown the door.  

Ignore the fact that OMac had another year on his contract, if the club wanted him to move on, they would have found a way - clubs are very shrewd with this kind of thing.

So all this builds the appetite for an intriguing year and one that will be very much about our coach - success or failure.

He sounds like a Melbourne man alright. Half the posts on Demonland are supremely negative.

I don't get the Lyon hatred either. How was he to know that Neeld would be a dud. We all were very hopeful when he was appointed as he was sold as the Mastermind behind Malthouse and Collingwood's midfield. Our club was a mess from top to bottom at the time and Garry had our best interests at heart. Not every move is a winning move and this one certainly turned to poo but it's not as if it was solely his fault and it seems that he now gets demonised for this one act and people forget the champion that he was. If he's negative about this club in the media then he is no different to 98% of Dees fans on this site and elsewhere.

Funnily enough, it's his best attribute. 

Great kick for a key defender. 

All other attributes are less than desirable.

Ed and Adam........   Hope they are with us ASAP or for me it would be sleepless nights.

The other  player we can go after to help Tmac is a tall forward with good hands and can kick goals .Oh  he has been known to take pack marks  can break packs and plays on confidence.You know the purple patches type. His name is Sam they call him the WEID.

The phantom wears purple.............

Maybe holding out for Yze the year after? He'll be out of contract then.

Was also involved in the Sheedy rejection for Bailey in 2007.  Has history.  No hatred just not sure why the club felt it necessary to go back to the well again after that fail selection.

Garry is interested in MFC goings on and no doubt still loves the club.  A good listen with the analytics but his heart and profession (ie; what he takes seriously and where his skills lie) are with his media career.

Not Garry's fault he was selected twice either.  Poor leadership / decision making up top...yet again.

Until this club gets a Brendan Gale type heading it who has & sets a clear vision then drives the entire club towards those set goals we will most likely continue to flounder / dead cat bounce.

Very safe kick after taking an eternity to sum up his safest short option. Provides absolutely no run, much less burst out of defence. 

If we’re playing Oscar as a second KPD, we’re in trouble.

Yze being interviewed for the Adelaide job and Scott Burns has withdrawn from applying. Ooze may be heading south. 

Re OMac maybe the plan is to play him up forward this season. Experiment was on show late in the season

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    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

    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

    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

    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
