To be fair, my shoelace is also too good for this level of game. Norf are horrible. Just horrible. 

Have 13 or 14 players on their injury list ATM so I imagine they struggled to even field a side.

Harmes is extremely overrated on demonland. 

Had one good year in 2018 playing as a stopper but he makes far far too many mistakes. Fumbles, miakicks and handballs and tries to take everyone on. 

Even before his injury, he had a really underwhelming start to the year. 

Likes his instagram account a bit too much imo. 

Sparrow looked 10x better which is a bit concerning for Harmes

Kind of agree with this. Been seven years on the list and was great in late 2018 but nothing much else. It's a nice story growing up a Melbourne supporter but it beggars belief why he was given a five-year deal.

Only saw bits and pieces of the game but, at least to me, Sam Weideman just seems to lack intensity and the ability to get involved.

Wow , gee you wonder how nth are going to get better when there 2nd's team gets belted by 107 points. 

So is Daw injured or did they rest him in the last half? 

Yeah I hope weidermna sticks around? What's his contract situation? Unfortunately tommy is probably the one keeping him out by playing great footy at them moment. But at least when Sam does come in he will be full of ocnfidence.

Sparrow was fantastic as was Weideman. He needs to come in next week.

Harmes was honestly average for me. I see nothing that suggest he'll add much to our side anytime soon. I get more satisfaction in James Jordon and Sparrow at AFL level now that I do with Harmes.

Chandler and Bedford were buzzing around the half forward and their work rate was huge.

Jake Bowey has a serious serious kick on him.

Yes the 5 year deal for an average player who had 1 really good year was crazy.  Collingwood showed what happens when you overpay players.

North being so poor made it almost impossible to know what to take out of that match.  My conclusions:

-  nobody smashed the door down tonight;

-  Casey played the Melbourne way, which is a very good sign

Crazy length in hindsight but in fairness he's likely only on solid coin nothing more

Nah Mono, he was quite good the whole match. Took 10 marks and smashed several packs... hit them hard. Kid had a really good game regardless of the quality of opposition. He looks a different player to last year.

While im at it, i thought Chandler showed some real silk as well. Rosman has a gigantic tank and looks a perfect prospect for a wing. I thought the hype was OTT, but he actually did very well for a young bloke with so little experience. 

P.S. despite what the commentators said, i thought Sparrow had a much better game than Harmes, and the Beanpole Bradke gave it his all and wasnt useless. Majak early was right on top in the guts too.

Easy to look good in a 107 point win, but this is what we should be dong to keep pressure on the senior players.

Another goal to Foot. Lead is 86 points.

Foot. Great Game. What's his first name? He kicked 3 tonight in the smashing of NM by over 100 points!!!!!!!!! Why is he not on the MFC website under TEAMS?

Thanks ding.  As I said, only saw bits and pieces and only one of Sam’s goals.

Nah he was very good. Worked hard and competed well in the air. Really should’ve had six or seven. A couple of simple ones missed by his standard. He’s putting priceless pressure on T Mac to maintain his current form.

Jake Bowey will be a really good player. Very similar to Christian Salem. Rosman shows promise. Doesn't know how to weaponize his exceptional endurance at the moment.

Sparrow was very composed, the connection with Weids was great, showed some lovely field passes, needs to nail those snaps for goal.

Weids is leading well, taking marks and making his way up the ground. Seemed to get distracted within his thoughts of a play that just happened and then switched off. 

Good that Jetts was given some time as a negating mid. Still has plenty to offer. 

Bowey takes a while to get into the game, but then shines. What a good kick he has.

Unsure about Harmes, had a great 3rd quarter. Seemed lost in the first half, shouldn't happen at that level.

Chandler can play!

Majak can mark, gets to the right place, can crash a pack and rucks well.

Bedford works hard, has confidence and speed.

Rosman did some lovely passes.

D. Smith needs a bit more time.

Bradke has improved,  needs a bit more muscle development.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
