Tired of Greg Stafford being our goal kicking coach 

 

Feel your pain on the Dee-trauma front, Deegirl.

To be fair to the big fella his goals/behinds percentage is pretty darn good at 68.12% from 141 goals in 204 games -  better than Dunstall and not far off Lockett. For the record, Yze is 54.67% and Goodwin 54.54%. (Ben Brown at 67.21% is nice!). I remember him as having a very simple and clean kicking action.

But in general it has been a tiring watch over the journey.

I’m tired of nuffs who think criticising the club is a crime

i refuse to believe fraser rosman isn't actually 27 years old 

We are so frustrating and can't be trusted.   It's not pleasant watching them, it's a chore. As a long time supporter I'm tired. Tired of not seeing them fulfil potential. Tired of seei

Petracca looks the same as last season. Not sure what you're looking at. 

How many times have you seen Rosman play just out of interest?

This sort of completely rude, pointless post is a stain on this generally pretty good site. Just rubbish and it says all I need to know about who you are a person. And it is one of your more innocuous posts.

As I have posted before I put very few posters on ignore. Mostly with posters such as yourself who add little but angst i just don't bother with their posts, or if I do  use sarcasm to make a point.

But this rudeness is the straw 'dr d' and on ignore you go. It has been a tough  long year for everyone. Who needs to see such dull negativity.

Fraser Rosman has the potential to be an absolute beast. He has a similar physique to Paddy Cripps.

Bit of muscle to come, bit of orientation to the level, bit of inspiration from the Team - all will be good. I'd like to think that he could become an important interceptor and 'physical' rebounder with courage and intent. Over to you, Chock-Ooze!

I contacted the club today about going to Casey and what time training would be. This is there response.

Thank yo for taking the time to contact us.

The team won't be training tomorrow and at this stage their won't be any open training sessions. You can see training sessions when they take  place from outside the fence but you can't enter or approach players on their way in or out before or after training for photos or autographs due to the current guidelines.

 

So sorry Demonlanders I won't be going Friday. Hopefully in the new year they will have open training sessions.

Thanks for your efforts Werridee, do you mind just checking again that it didn't go on to say

... However we do understand supporter sites such as Demonland offer a valuable service in providing additional information to our fans, and given the circumstances we'll endeavour to provide further information on our website, along the same lines of what's been seen on those sites. 

They may have forgotten to add that part.

Thank you for your service.

Let us know how it goes and how much you can still see from behind the fence.

I'd love to head down before the Christmas break but not if it's comparable to sitting in row MM of the Ponsford stand. Apologies in advance to @Supermercado

False comparison, the elevation of Row MM lets you see everything you need to. Watching through the Casey fence would be like sitting at the back of Level 1 of the MCG but even worse because you're looking through a fence.

Tired of seeing them drop games they should win.

Tired of watching subpar skills.

Tired of having [censored] Robbo as the game day hype man.

Tired of seeing Trac, Clarry and Brayshaw not got back and take their time off the mark.

Tired of seeing Melksham give away stupid 50s.

Tired of not seeing the club hire a vodou houngan to calm the uneasy spirit of Norm Smith. 

Tired of saying wtf happened to Tom McDonald

Tired of seeing spuds like ANB on the list

Tired of Greg Stafford being our goal kicking coach (pre-Choco)

 

Think of this as my MFC Festivus  - I got a lot of problems with you people!

 

 

Very good. 100% agreed.

This post just about sums up why we've been utter garbage since 2007 and have not fulfilled our so called potential under Goodwin, despite he being gifted a solid list and re-build.

The Melksham one I especially agree with. If he gives away another pathetic 50 in round 1 next year, he can go play at Casey Fields until June.

I hear you Deegirl

I had to stop watching mid-way through 2019. Wasn’t fair on the family to put up with my outbursts and grumpiness. I was so expectant after 2018 and then….devastation.

Disappointment is the lot of most fans but the life of a dees supporter is a tough road.

But having said that, when we eventually come good, and we will (hopefully I’ll be alive) it will be all the sweeter for having travelled that road.

Go dees!

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    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
