It definitely looks bad, but it's a bit misleading because they haven't included AFLX games.  Add those in and we go above the Giants into 15th spot. 

With the exception of not winning a premiership I would take the 90s/00s any day over the 10s. 

Just another groundhog decade!

How have Adelaide and Geelong played one game less than the other teams? Was there an abandoned match in there somewhere?

Edit: Googled it, match in 2015 was abandoned following the death of Phil Walsh.

If we ran a ladder from the 70's through to now I'm guessing we would be holding the thing up at the bottom.

Fairly sure Fitzroy would be propping us up...

Maybe not if Brisbane is included...

The old Fitzroy team was pretty good before they hit the skids and had to fold.

will we now improve as a Club?

After we build our training base venture and social club.  I reckon things will change around this club, and the club itself,  for the better.

A lasting change.  Not a seasonal,  'strength of list'  type change,  but one of Identity.  Our Identity.    The sense of belonging.

We have to improve on field before any of what you mentioned ever gets built.

Hardly surprising but still depressing to look at. Surely the 20's can be our decade, our fans deserve it!!! 😫

A new decade comes, new beginning. God I'd love nothing more to see that ladder flipped so the Cats, Hawks, and Swans fans can experience our depression! (Cat's fans especially)

The decade does not finish until the end of next year, so we still have time to improve our ranking!

2000 was the last year of the previous millennium.   It was the 2000th year.  The new millennium started in 2001.  

Why do you think Federation occurred on 1st January 1901?

Think of it like your birthday.  You don't turn 21 (for example) until the end of your 21st year, or year 21.  You then commence year 22, your 22nd year, at the end of which you will turn 22.

2021 will be the start of a new decade.

Because people mistakenly thought it was the start of a new millennium because it was the year 2000. 

You're still making the same mistake.

I'll dumb it down for you.  The first decade is years 1 to 10.  The second decade is years 11 to 20.  The third decade is years 21 to 30.

The first century is years 1 to 100.  The second century is years 101 to 200.  And so forth.

The first millennium is years 1 to 1000.  The second millennium is years 1001 to 2000.  Etc, etc.

There is no year zero.  The first year is year one.  The hundredth year is year 100.  The thousand year is year 1000.

If you still have doubt, Google it.

Sometimes waiting to strike Lasiter's, is just waiting too long.

Sometimes going into hock to get it done, is the way to get there sooner.

Like so many off the other clubs have done.  If we get into trouble, let the other clubs and league bail us out.

Mate you dumbed that down so far even I could get it.

This country is getting dumber by the year.

Good luck teaching idiots

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
