The fact we ran so hard late disgusts me. Deliberately pick and choose. This club doesn't deserve us. 

Yep, hard to defend anyone tonight. Pathetic effort from the players, to the coaches, to the selections. 

But there was no system tonight. And why throw the magnets around after being so consistent on team defence all year? 

The players looked tired. The guys they brought in gave us very little. Cerra and Brayshaw gave our mids a lesson. Embarrassing. They were cleaner, they used the ball better, they used the right side of the ground more often and it all seemed too hard for us.

Max seems to be playing injured, but sides appear to have worked him out. He's a good intercept player in defence playing by himself, but very ordinary in the ruck.

It's a funny old season. We looked certain to make finals a week or so ago. Now we'll almost certainly miss and if we do, Goodwin should probably go.

They're a dysfunctional team, players who play the individual game and just don't link in and work together.  A few who bash and crash in, a few who chase kicks....no structure, no discipline, no leadership, no game plan.  Shown up by an opposition team who had all of those qualities tonight.  

There's 8 players in the team who are VFL players at best, that's another issue.  The list has some talent at the top (but who do their own thing) but the bottom half are garbage.

Totally agree multitude of issues including a list of players who are not AFL standard. Putting aside actual ladder position after a seven year rebuild we are only better than Crows and Kangas. Long suffering supporters deserve better.

Could you give a quick rundown for the none foxtel viewers? (no sarcasm, genuinely interested)

One of the most astounding decisions he's ever made.  We could play better as a key forward than he can.  He didn't even look like it, and he isn't mobile enough to get up the ground to give us a target.  

My guess as for their thinking was Pruess would bash packs and bring it to ground for Bedford, Hunt, Kozzi, ANB etc to mop up. Problem being Pruess is a spud, we didn't select for the conditions and our fwd50 entries are worst in the league.

Outhustled by 14th and 15th on the ladder. Looked to have the requisite intensity for the last 5 minutes. Bizarre.

Forget Goodwin...those blokes got beat by a group who wanted it more than them.

This is so spot on. Something is wrong.

The freo boys wanted that win more than us. That was so clear from the start. 

So many half hearted attempts at tackles. So many half hearted chases. As you say so little intensity.

For mine only langdon, trac  may, hibbo, viney, fritter, Oliver, max, rivers and maybe lever played with the required intensity.

And of that lot only langdon  fritter and maybe viney played well.

I could pick out any number of players but one stood out for me. Weideman. His effort, other than in marking contests, was simply appalling and not acceptable. Trotted around, didn't tackle, didn't play wirh any intensity.

17 changes in 3 games. Something is wrong.

The only positive I can see is Goody found his bottle of water. Half way through the last quarter you see himm with phone in hand, he looks puzzled, slightly annoyed. he goes to speak but decides against it. Two minutes later you can see he discided to act. he stood up and got a bottle of water. Shades of the scene from the Castle.

So obviously the club has severely overated its list. I have as well. The depth is poor and development of low draft picks non-existent

Sure we have Gawn, Oliver, Viney, Petracca, May and Langdon. Then second tier players like Salem, Melksham, Lever, Fritta, Weed, HArmes, Hibberd, JAckson, Rivers, , etc 

But the bottom layer of Bedford, Pickett, Sparrow, Smith, Baker, ANB, AvB, the Wagners, Spargo, OMac, Hannan, etc.  seem to be no where near it.

I'm not renewing if he is still coaching next year.

I called the club last week and took my membership of auto-renew. I told them if Goodwin goes I'll put it back on.

Someone mentioned that Pert gets reports like this. Call the club and let them know you won;t re-sign if Goodwin is there. Money talks.

Well Said Wise

i haven’t trusted him since he walked away  from the 2018 Preliminary Final

As a young Coach he should have studied every Frame of what Meth Coke did to us in that First Half

But Simon knew better....

Well guess what...

The big losses in 2018 (Hawks etc) convinced me

We don't tackle very well, we don't man up too well, we don't really chase, we have terrible foot skills, terrible decision making and handball skills and no great marking players. We have a few who have a crack when the ball is in their area, but really apart from that, we are deficient in every other area of the game.

Tackling and chasing are mental and the c grader type players (Bedford, Baker etc..) at least should do that well, unfortunately ours just run around like stoned beagles and when they get the ball kick as well as stoned beagles!

Couch discussion was so good, and like him or not Lyon nailed everything about the club and the side. 

 

Agree. Not a big fan of everything he says and I wish he did something to help rather than just take pot shots, but he's not wrong.

The thing is people don't like ugly truths.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
