To Hell and Back.    What an arrogant bunch of flogs to sell that rubbish to us. 

That's the way guys, let's get stuck into the 7th gamer when all of our core leaders are playing poorly. You muppet, he's possibly one of about 2 of our players who are playing well.

Triple M commentary:  "Simon Goodwin standing 3 metres from me with his thumb in his mouth,  clueless what to do next. " Says it all really.

Game day, bit weird. Getting through the border checkpoint tomorrow is gonna be a bit dicey...🍻

Magnificent morning here in East Brisbane just 600 metres from the Gabba. Blue skies and not a cloud in sight. It has been sunny and breezy the past few days so the conditions should be conducive to good football. I am looking forward to seeing the boys live and up close tonight.

If we can bring our best game, Port is certainly beatable. Westhoff is my concern. He seems to save himself for games against us. Harmes to lock down Boak would be good to see.  Wishing the young bull Tommy Sparrow all the best. I think we will find that we have unearthed another good one.

Seems I’ve only just responsibly recycled the empty Shiraz bottles after last Sunday’s disappointment- and here we go again 

We’ve had a couple of near misses so we need to win this one to stay in the contenders column 

The side looks good but it is a pity we couldn’t pick Vanders    I reckon it will be a physical affair. You would hope mids learnt a bit from the Brisbane game and ..... surely Weid couldn’t kick so shizen again

Tmac was showing a bit prior to his injury so I reckon he’ll be hungry to make a contribution  

Jackson looks the goods and is growing in confidence  If he could snag one early it would give Port’s defence an ugly moment 

One good thing to come out of this Corolla business 

Demons by a couple of goals

He has been dreadful this year, but as you say, he always seems to kill us.

Enjoy PD!

Seems like only yesterday that I'm heading into the bar at the MCG at the 22 minute mark of the 1st quarter because we are 3 goals down...

Does anyone else find it amazing that we went with the four smallest forwards on our list in Rd 1 against a tall Eagles side, reverted to a one-pronged tall attack against Richmond (Rd 5, game four I think)  and now we are going with three talls up forward for a night game. Does that sound like Goody has clarity about what structure to go with to you?

Thankfully the weather forecast for Brissy is great for tonight so our bigs should be able to hold on to their marks, unlike last week when the greasy conditions spelt disaster for them.

Let’s hope it’s not the last game we get to see live given those 2 imbeciles that have Covid decided to go on a tour of all parts of Brisbane rather than self isolating. 
 

Make it a good win Dees, we need it.

Apart from ANZAC Eve, have we ever previously played a Thursday night game broadcast on free-to-air TV?

Twice.

We got flogged by WC in 2011 in Perth by 8 goals.

We beat Sydney last year by 20 odd points.

Both times we were fixtured on Thursday nights as the AFL backed us in to be something special for both years.

If we kick the first few goals then stay in front from there, we should win.

You should be right mate. It's only 2 people. 

If SE Queensland starts having tons of cases, it's season over considering VIC and NSW are now off the table.

Thanks for that BBP but unfortunately they have been all over the place and a 3rd person now affected  

I am still annoyed that people can be so selfish and put communities at risk after all the good work we have done up here. 
 

It really does astound me and not in a good way. I can only hope it doesn’t spread that much and can be contained.

With the horrible new in Victoria just keeping on keeping on, I for one am looking forward to 2 hours of being angry at something other than Covid.

Surely May has to take Dixon. If Oscar is on him Charlie will just dominate. 

I have no idea what to expect tonight, but if the players target Gawn like they did last year then I hope the boys are ready to defend him. 

By the way serious question, where is watts. I know he had that leg injury but what has happened to him?

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist
