Good to see Mitch finally make his debut for the Dogs. Good luck Mitch.  

As someone who's worked with Schache at junior level I find this comment disrespectful.  You've made judgement on his attitude based on what you've probably read on bigfooty or just making it up to su

Good luck to him (except in about 4 week’s time when they play us).

The only player to have left the club recently who won't be spewing. 

Best of luck to him!

Best of luck Mitch! The old darl at the Woodend Mitre 10 has nothing to talk to me bout now you’ve left... so thanks for that.

Hard not to have a soft spot for Mitch after that moment in Geelong final in ‘18. Still gives me goosebumps when I watch the clip. Good luck Mitch!

Yep I was devastated when he left but now I'm fine with it. Truth be told I kind of actually forgot about him until I heard he was playing tomorrow night. 

Good luck to him, I hope he plays well.

Yep that goal against geelong is still on my favourites. The look on Chris Scott's face is even better.

I thought it was not that great to be honest. The Wheatley commentary was much better , then there's the Titanic mix that surpasses them all

Agreed. A good outcome for him. But given dees forward structure and strategy i think there was no room for him and fritsch.

Mitch was a bit hot and cold but fritsch has become a 4 quarter threat and is more vetsatile.

I caught a little bit of the Dogs v GWS VFL game the other day. I was really surprised by his size. Much bigger and taller than I remember. Looking forward to seeing him again tonight to confirm or realign my view.

I liked Mitch but he did just seem to keep getting injured. Wish him well.

You have to handle it to the Cat supporting Whately for that call. If I was commentating that and my team was about to face certain finals elimination it would sound something like “ [censored], [censored]! miss it you [censored] “

Bruce (deary, deary me . . . their version of Chris Dawes, only much worse), Cordy (doesn't get to enough contests to kill the ball), Duryea (c-grader that played in a premiership surrounded by really good players), Hannan, Martin, Naughton, Schache (a gamble that hasn't paid off and shouldn't play another AFL game), JJ (what has happened to him?), West, Scott. Naughton still has time on his side, but the others either won't or can't improve. Their only first choice player not available last night, who makes a significant difference, is English. They have a respectable mid-field bunch, but field seriously flawed talls in both the back and front half.

One of their better midfielders in Dunkley was not available. Would he have made the difference? Probably not, but you went early on the Bulldogs are in real trouble and I don't think it's justified.

Agree AF. I wouldnt be writing them off yet after 1 bad half against a great team.

That midfield is still incredible (despite losing Dunkley) and will beat most teams. Their youngsters look good and their support players are good enough. 

In saying all that... Queanbeyan Demons analysis of their bad players is accurate too.

Naughton - despite his irritating coiffure - is an outstanding talent. But you're right about Bruce - and his hairdo is even more nauseating.

Back to Mitch...showed a lot of what he did with us.

Missed an easy set shot which I said to my Tiges mate he would.

Had some nice cameos but went missing for a lot of the game.

He is a downhill skier, when the going gets tough he disappears rarely puts his body on the line and went missing in action.

I always said to others he is what Ray Jordan used to call a Jib.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
