All aboard ...

My son is 4 weeks old tomorrow. He's seen 4 from 4. This run is all him.

Jake Lever with the best defensive game by a Dee since Jake Lever in Round 1. What an absolute boss he was today.

There was only 29k at the pies game last night!!!!

That was against GWS who have legitimately 5,000 supporters nationwide if they're lucky.

Not a lot to add, but currently sitting in the MCC on my 8th pint.

Copped a spray from two attractive Geelong supporting girls as they left before the final siren.

I’ve analysed the incident and cannot imagine what bought that sort of behaviour on towards myself and my Melbourne supporting friend aside from our verbal contempt for everything Geelong today.

I feel so at ease...go Dees!!!

At first glance it looked accidental: after watching it a few times, Hawkins threw his arm back at May; that's no accident. And, Hawkins has form....

Agreed I think it probably effected him mentally for the rest of the game too once he saw what he had done to him.

Gotta give some love to Tmac.

Nine marks on a wet day.

Very nice.

Hes back with 3 great games.

Yes but the pies have a membership north of 80K and ours is half that.

doesnt matter

Criteria as I understand. Accidental doesnt come in to it   3 weeks minimum

Reckless, high and injury 

Its mandatory right??

Don’t think that applies for this scenario, but with the MRP who bloody knows 😄

Got to be kidding 

What have we got Petty for? 
Deserves his chance. 

True, not sold on Petty, hasn’t had a real good run at it yet, but I reckon if they deem Weid or brown ready, the. Tmac back could be the go.

Yes, replay needs to be watched before it mysteriously disappears.

Initially thought accidental, then a little doubt crept in when slow motioned.

Elbow became bent just before contact, i think.

Just got home.  What a crap Melb day....what a great Melb win!!  You [censored] beauty Demons.  Stuck it right up em!

Club is on track we are finally back as a decent force to be reckoned with.

Much work ahead.  BB needed up forward ASAP.  Will straighten us up and ensure we finish off the opp a lot quicker than we did today.

GO THE MIGHTY DEMONS!

Just got back from the game. Great win and particularly so given I had to endure the worst Geelong [censored] I’ve ever come across sitting in front of me mouthing off for the whole game. An absolute stooge.

I’ll have to watch a replay but just a few observations that may not have been mentioned before (I haven’t read through the thread yet)

Tomlinson did a great job in the circumstances holding Hawkins to a couple of goals. That bloke is a brute but Tomlinson held his own. Our defensive structures stayed intact despite the loss of May. He’s a huge loss but we should be able to cope reasonably well in his absence I think

When Spargo tackles someone they stay tackled

Hunt is our most improved player. Defending like I’ve never seen him defend before.

Fritsch can go from the sublime to the ridiculous in the space of a minute

Viney is a bull. Best game for quite a while.

Salem was superb. Never wastes possession and had his direct opponent in his pocket for most of the afternoon. Marked every ball that came near him

We brought real intensity to the show. The type of heat that holds up in September.

Put the game to bed early in the 4th when I was genuinely apprehensive about where the game was heading.

The negative – we don’t put teams away. Conversion must improve because it’ll cost us one day soon. Hopefully the addition of BB will make a big difference here.

Go Dees

Jayden Hunt back to his best, which was all the way back in 2017, didn’t think I’d see it to be honest.

So exciting to see him dash down the middle of the g. Nobody can catch him. Boldly has a bounce with a player a metre behind him and the scoots off.

A very mature performance.  I loved the way they kept the ball in front of them in contests throughout the day.  A bit of a lapse at the start of the 3rd, but we got back to our game without too much fuss.

4-0.  Thanks!

Lever for president. 
 

Tackling was insane, haven’t seen that many holding the balls since the vasectomy clinic. 
 

That Jetta BS was some [censored] BS.

Love your work.

How much does the MCG suit Langdon? He was amazing the first half especially.

Hunt seems to have matured. goes on a great run but now lowers eyes and kicks well

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs

    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
