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.

Fantastic TEAM effort ALL day, we have a hunting pack of demons that work hard and share it together. Skills definitely improving and kicking for goal improved substantially as the game progressed. All the praise has been said in all posts, fantastic Dlanders.

Can someone go and collect what the Cats fans are saying? 

Live for those threads after a win.

First off: **** YEAH!!!!

Secondly what's interesting is I think we still have more gears to go to. Our pressure around the ball is very good and you can see how linked our game is to that pressure. The moment it drops is the moment teams are let back into the game.

What I loved:
Petracca being the dominant beast he is. BOG today for me.

Lever stepping up in more ways than one. When that cheating ump gave the tackle free kick against Jetta and then Brayshaw got done for his late bump tempers were flaring, Lever brought everyone into line and got us to reset. Big tick in a leadership capacity after May got subbed out.

Fritta being accurate, 4.1 in a tough day for kicking was huge for us. Particularly the fourth one he nailed.

Finishing the game knowing we're 4-0!!!!

What I liked:
I thought Brayshaw had a good game today, he seemed to be floating in different areas and provided a cool head at times.

Salem continuing his outstanding year. Was he beaten once today?

Langdon continuing his outstanding year.

Gawn's goal. Absolutely ridiculous but the way the boys got around him, love it!

What I didn't like:
4 weeks of being clearly the better team up to 3 quarter time but not putting them away. It's going to bite us in the bum if we're in that position against WB, Tigers, WC, and Port.

We kicked well mostly last week but back to the bad this week. I accept that conditions weren't easy but there were shots that should've gone in regardless, strangely Spargypants was probably the worst offender. We kicked them when they mattered though.

May out for how long? Fingers crossed there's not a fracture but I worry we won't be that lucky.

After Tom's good start to the year he's gone back to being mostly ineffective. I think he's still staying involved in bringing the ball to ground but he dropped marks he should be taking today. I think he gets one more week if BBB is having another Casey run, if not Tom could be going back to the seconds.

EDIT: I missed Tommy's marks, and contribution. Hand up, my mistake!

Oh and one more thing: the umps. Bloody frustrating and seemed to keep the cats in the game, some downright bizarre calls (we got a couple as well).

Incredibly satisfying .

 

Am I alone in thinking Hawkin's elbow wasn't accidental?

Tough call.

 But like toby g and his errant kicking  ( hitting faces) if you inadvertantly ( benefit of doubt) throw them around, sooner or later you elbow someone in the eye.

Should be some sort of demerit system.

Brayshaw was a monster today, along with Lever, Trac, Fritta, Gawn, Hunty, Langers, Sales.

We have energy and other levels to go to.

The way we are setting up defensively is outstanding. We are strangling teams and they have no answer. We need to start kicking straight because it will cost us eventually, but being 4-0 is brilliant!

Terrific team performance. Viney, Oliver and Petracca in the midfield were tremendous. Lever and Tomlinson were great behind the ball.

I felt our forward pressure was much more like it in the second half. We really lifted the intensity with Spargo, ANB and Kozi really ramped up the frontal pressure and it is vital to how we're strangling teams.

Thought Tom McDonald provided a solid target up forward and up the ground. Really important game from him and could give our team another dimension when Brown and potentially Weideman put their hands up.

Petracca needs to do less of the Hollywood knocks and taps when he could instead take a clean possession and impact the contest. As I said, he played a great game, but cost us a goal on transition when he tried a fancy little knock on. Did a couple dinky little taps like that as well. He's close to fulfilling that potential many saw in him.

Looking forward to watching the replay, because my read on Oliver's game is that we started Oliver mostly forward to throw the tag and he got away from it, so they dropped the tag in the second half and Clarry was influential around stoppages as the game wore on. He and Selwood went head to head in the last and Oliver I thought beat him comfortably.

The worst part of the day was the crowd again. 33,000 is pathetic. I know there were mostly Melbourne supporters there, but bloody hell. 40k should be the floor expectation for a game between two Victorian teams at the MCG. I know it was raining and cold, but that's a weak excuse. Lift, MFC supporters, we're 4 zip now, get behind us.

It’s a terrible time slot let alone for a feral of Cats fans to get up the highway.

Haha I missed most of the first quarter, might've been around then he dominated! But I'll gladly bow and say I missed his contribution, 9 marks as a CHF sort of position is solid day at the office in awful conditions.

Excellent summary but TMac took nine marks today and is averaging seven a game. Hard to drop on that form.

I was interested in Messr's Pickett rebuke to Selwood in the fourth.

Anyways, as Petracca kicked a goal at half time - here was Joel, loading up to give him a gobful unrequested.

Kysaiah doesn't look to be the mouthy type

Oliver however...😇

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. 
 

Got to agree.

He has really put the polish on this team with his run and clean ball use.Good mark too.

The difference  seems to be him.Clearly.

Best winger since Stretch.

    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.

    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,

    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.

    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
