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.

We are good at nullifying the opposition. Four weeks in a row, made them look 2nd tiers.

Was Duncan, Miers or Guthrie playing. 

Great game plans Coaches.

Was excellent coaching and good execution by the players

Not sure who negated Guthrie in 1st Qrt but saw Jones playing tagging fwd role in 3rd and 4th on Tuohy and others. ANB, Spargo, Pickett, Sparrow all played great defensive roles

Viney and Tracc smashed them in the guts and Oliver did his bit while fending off a hard tag. Even Tmac had a good contested game

The pressure from everyone was the massive highlight for me! I am pumped to see us grind a good team, particularly when they had a great 10 minute stretch to narrow the gap

Steve May - fractured eye socket 

4-6 weeks

Thanks Jumbo but this is sad news indeed.

I think it was an accident but hawkins should not have been swinging his elbows around.

On that basis anyone could do it and hide under the same pretext.

Like a ball over the line on purpose or not...how do you judge intent?

Gee the Cats were so so lucky it was wet. We were all over them most of the day. Dry day and we would have really carved them up.

Great win. Our tackling was awesome. We were physical and ferocious. Good signs.

Big shame about May. Petty gets his chance.  We will be ok.

Langdon is a genuine star of our team. What he brought to our side is invaluable. Probably our most important recruit this decade. 
Also thought Gus did exceptionally well when thrown down back when May went down. 
We showed really maturity to turn the momentum in the last quarter and not let the horrid umpiring get to us. 
Some of the decisions today were baffling. 
 

My only let down today was Melksham. He did nothing offensively and defensively he is trash.

Hawkins,    high contact, reckless elbow, severe result, should be nothing less than 3 weeks, intentional or not.

That was just a genuine great win.  Everyone contributed, nobody shirked and we operated as a unit all game.  Yes, there were a few moments of idiocy that cost us goals, but overall we once again controlled the game and didn't panic when they got a run on. 

Of particular note is the fact that we were never behind.  Not once in that game.  We scored first and they never caught up.  I don't remember the last time that happened.  Even with our usual trouble converting, that was pretty close to a complete game. 

Is anyone else noticing how much the twins (Hunt and Langdon) are feeding off each other?  It seems to me that Landon's presence on the outside has inspired Hunt and he's now working much harder to match his lookalike.

Sparrow is always in the top bracket for pressure acts.

Maybe we should leave him in the team...   even though I didnt mind Melk coming in.

My 3 favourite moments other than the magnificent win:

1) Free kick against Selwood for a high tackle on the ducking Spargo in the first q. Can dish it out but can't take it!

2) Seeing Viney mark in front of goal and watching Selwood (his direct opponent and 15m away) pointing to all and sundry in a 'not my fault way'

3) Kossie standing over Selwood as mentioned earlier..... say no more

Yes, I have a problem with Selwood, or should I say, had

Goodwin and his coaching staff deserve a lot of the credit.

He has picked a team that has not changed in the first 4 rounds

When the opposition gets on top, we now have a plan B and C to counter this.

Our defensive set up is the best I've seen in recent memory.

The team is playing for each other and for their coach.

I thought Jackson was in the ruck too long but it paid off with Max finishing with a full tank.

Also a highlight was Kozzie giving him lip after he gave a free to KP. There was something left hanging from half time siren

Champion footballer, butalways gives a hard-done-by display which is rich for a bloke who's professionalised the art of getting soft frees

He lacks the humility of a Dangerfield/Ablett Jnr who show much more respect when beaten

    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.

    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
