Recommended Posts

Congratulations for the 100th game on Monday. 

You have worked hard to improve yourself and your game every year from debut in 2016.  In every way you do yourself and the red and blue proud.

Would love it to be at the 'G'.  One of the sad parts of this season has been to not be able to watch your talents live.

Hoping the team brings the win home for you.

Congratulations  Christian 

Love the way you have been going about the year. You have been building to the 100th  game and playing the best footy of your career.  

Your next 100 will be even better.  I thank the Lord that you play for our great club.

Despite our 7-7 record, still in line for a top 5 Brownlow finish and an AA jumper.

Has taken his game to another level this year, which very few other MFC players have done.

There is a continued expectation on him to lead us. It's important we all remember he's only just now reaching his 100th game and is only 24 years old.

So many comparisons get drawn between him and Dustin Martin. IIRC, Martin's entrance to the AFL's elite was 2016 (first time he won RIchmond's B&F and made the AA team). That was his 7th season. Petracca's currently in his 6th season, one of which he missed entirely through injury.

I’ve spent many a match at the G telling my family and friends that ‘one day’ Pettacca will break games open and with consistency. 
Oh to have been there this year to see it in person.

Congratulations Christian, you always liked to mingle with the fans on Family Days, something we appreciated. 

After you win the Brownlow, I guess those days will come to an end! We will have to queue. ?

Well done to Trac, he’s been a definite bright spot this year in amongst inconsistency from many teammates. 

He can get better, which is scary for the competition. Really hope he celebrates with a win.

Well done Christian. Probably the only player on the list to have improved from last year, which is a testament to the work he has done. My only hope is that he remains in red and blue once his contract ends in 2022. He will be a restricted free agent then, and I can see him seeking team glory elsewhere.

Congratulations on 100 games Christian Petracca!

You are having a wonderful year and I feel you can only get better if you keep up the hard work! The sky is the limit for you!

 

I hope you get to wear a few premiership medallions around your neck for the Demons and I look forward to you playing another 200+ games for the club.

Has done it the hard way after tearing that ACL in his first preseason and it's obvious it has taken real commitment to reach the level he's now at.  As others have mentioned, it's scary when you think he probably still has another level to go to. 

His best this season has been pretty bloody good, but I do feel like the side in general, he does need to work a bit on consistency, which is hopefully both him and the side will develop over the next 25 - 50 games (I can't help but think that his personal consistency and that of the teams are interdependent).

Asides from his obvious on feild talent, Christian has always given the impression that he'd be a rippa of a bloke to have around the club.  Congratulations Christian - look forward game 100, 200 in the red & blue and beyond and hopefully a few premierships along the way.

Despite the club’s failings, it’s pretty bloody nice to have a team with three genuine stars of the comp. Of those three (Gawn, Clarry and Trac for those playing at home), this is the guy that has the most superstar potential. Another couple of years of this level and we will have a Dusty /Danger/Fyfe level player in our midst. Been a long time between drinks since we’ve had that.

Congrats to the big guy. Please stick around for the next 100.

Nothing on the club website yet.  Anyone seen a tweet or fb post?  Hope they don't forget!

Its a shame border closures prevent this little guy from Tassie being their to watch the 100th as he was for Christian's 1st.

Hadn't played a game yet had time and care to share his opportunity with a great kid.  No accolades sought.  It was Lucas' dad that let the media know about Christian's befriending of his son.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
