NON MFC: 2020 Marsh Series

Recommended Posts

I can’t be the only one so starved for footy that I’m watching this.

Frosty already doing Frosty things in a Hawks jumper (I mean that in a complimentary way Mrs Frost if you’re reading this)

Hill would’ve been a very handy pick up. Pretty jealous the Saints nabbed him. AFL app still has him wearing a Freo jumper 👍🙄

First half has been a classic pre-season game:  decent skills but plenty of errors, one team starting hot then the other getting into the groove... neither side worries me all that much though.

How good is it to see footy at Moorabbin again!

Also no idea how people can say a team is bottom whatever in one half of the first praccy match.

Brad Hill... what a gun.

It makes me sick listening to how much they rate him. He made that many classic Frosty errors. Kept banging on about how handy he will be. Also kept mentioning how he was top 10 in our BNF. Did they forget that we were a bottom 2 side ??

Taking my MFC hat for a second, I Thought Frost was good after quarter time. Certainly did more good than bad.

Not the party line 🙈

I thought both teams would've been happy with that hit out. Saints looked pretty slick for PS1 and had a good look at Hill, Butler, King, Coffield and Clark in particular. They'll be knocking on the door of the 8 this year

Hawks wouldn't have been happy with McEvoy going down but he should be back round 1 or 2 if it's a minor hamstring. Patton looked ok and got through unscathed as did Mitchell, that would be the only thing I was worrying about as a Hawks supporter at this stage

Went to the AFL website and didnt even know there was a game on last night until I saw this thread.

Their website is truly horrendous.. why have they gotten rid of the scoreboard bar along the top?

They also did not have any match stats available on their website. You had to go to their smartphone app or a third parties.

It's not only the media that overrated him, more posters here where crying that we were letting him go, if you never watched him play, and read the thread about Frost going, you would have thought we were trading  SOS.

Membrey best on ground!!  I thought it was just us he got up for. Kicked a lazy 4.

I hoped last year we might chase him. Very underrated in my opinion

Methinks the Saints’ past players and supporters passion was about having footy back at Moorabbin last night

I cannot get excited about preseason games

I’m not a fan of nfl, but one thing they do well is not giving preseason as much oxygen - it’s straight into competitive games not this glorified training malarkey

Quick look on social media and Hawks fans seem happy with Frost's performance last night which i found interesting, still early days. Still love the Frost - but not always for positive footballing reasons

SOS overrated, a 2 time premiership player who played fullback for all of his career, but also kicked over 200 goals yeah overrated, I know we all hate Carlton but respect man.

saw most of his games live.

All I will remember of him is the killer torp in the Hawks finals match in 2019 at the 5 minute mark of the 1st 1/4.

We wouldn't have improved if he kept getting a game with us.

Good luck to him at the hawks though, but gee they are a seriously good outfit disposal quality- wise and I just cant see it for him there.

Think the emotion more about the return to Moorabbin. As a baysider I remember spending a couple of great nights at the social club there as a youngster. Was rocking! Not sure anyone actually went to moorabbin for the actual footy.

    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

    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
