I know this could be a pretty messy season, but gee I'd love to be round 1 winners for once and then get off to a flyer, even if just to build belief and an expectation within to group that we are capable of it for future seasons.

 

Go the mighty Demons.

I would love to see more GWS and less Suns in our game...

good luck Dees. I hope the preseason shows out in high pressure, high quality footy.  Weagles are a tough first up opponent.

Hope we win but realistically it’s probably going to be a 30+ loss.

Mmmm, i thought that, then I realised I was referring to form from the 2019 season. A whole range of things have drastically changed. I'm optimistic.

I'm quietly confident based on our pre season form, and the very  little I saw of an under-manned WCE over summer.  Quiet confidence will no doubt morphe into loud supporting during the match, and I hope to have good reason to keep the volume on high post siren.

6:40 is such a late start. Still can’t believe the AFL scheduled the game for this time considering what we all know about Perth’s weather this time of the year. 3:40pm Perth time? Sun will be absolutely peaking! 

But we’ll still get up, so...

Based on a few games I have partially seen , a good start is essential, either kickaway or stop the opposition. 
the short quarters just make up catch up near impossible. at least no 4 crowd free leading to goals 
A win would mean foxtel playing this game all year in the best of 2020 if we dont get to rnd 2 :)

Checking in from . . . Darwin! 

Was excited that for the first time in years I haven't had to make complicated calculations about when to set my alarm to catch the match. Then realised that it's being played in Perth while I'm in the Territory in what remains of the various Australian daylight-savings periods.

Wasn't previously a fan - but thanks for setting up the game-day countdown clock Demonland!

Yes a hard start most important  slow like the dogs,  goodnight irene !    After watching Tigers and GWS  not so confident anymore, but anything is possible.  No support in the stands gives us an even break.

I thought Gameday would not get here,   GO DEES !!

funny time though !

I'm Perth born and raised and been going for this club for 22 years now. 

Every time this game comes round I pray to God we beat the Eagles. 

I think we will go down but anything more than 3 goals will be concerning. 

Looking at Brown + Viney to have big ones.

Really looking fwd to today’s game, Kayo is up and running....

I’m excited at the prospect of Kozzie and Bedford running around, hope they play together for many years to come. Our forward line has the ability to be very dangerous with a good mix of players. 

All eyes on Petracca, quality opposition away from home and in form, we need him to dominate.

If Salem was playing would Hibberd miss altogether?

That’s true. Let’s hope pre-season form carries on into the season proper. The only thing better than beating the eagles, is betting them with a stadium full of eagles supporters.

Forget the tv rights (that the AFL, 7, Foxtel & Kayo are doing nicely from), surely the AFL if it was genuine about helping Clubs and fans, could allow the MFC to live stream to members (who will receive little benefit otherwise this year)? 😳

32c and little breeze. The ground here gets hot anyway but with reduced quarters and normal interchange cap we shouldn’t be under any great duress. 
 

I think today we just need to be the more physical side. 
I tip that Kennedy won’t make it through the game if May punished him every time the footy comes in.

My only glimmer of hope is that the weagles generally don’t start the season well. 
 

I REALLY hope that trend continues.

I think you can sign up for a 14 day Kayo trial or $10 for 2 weeks. Quite reasonable really..

Yeah i hear you, McQueen... just looked like a strange decision for a day game in Perth for Rnd1. Anyway, feeling good about today regardless.

    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
