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.

Did you see him sooking when Spargo did the same to him? Been doing it for years but can't cop it when it goes the other way

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

    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
