HM: ‘to put into context, it’s been so long since the Demons went 8-0 to start a season, Whinston Churchill, Michael Jackson and Courtney Love something, something, not born yet, not even dead.’

LD: ‘Even the way Kozi Pickett runs to the interchange bench, extraordinary’

HM: ‘player with ball has played football, XX games, born at Mercy hospital, mum was an elite netballer’

LD: ‘my powder blue jacket really brings out my eyes, impressive stuff’

HM: ‘I’m a grammarian, Et Tu Lingus?’

CL ‘Melbourne are good, but not as good as the team I led to 3 premierships.’

MR: ‘across every line I just can’t see a weakness for the Dees. Geez I wish I played on a team like this.’

CL: ‘You just can’t know what it feels like unless you’ve held it aloft’

MR: ‘I get to hold the Tigers premiership cups every Tuesday 8.30-9am’

CL: ‘like I said, you can’t know. I also own that pier in Geelong, great feeling you can’t know unless you own one’

HM: ‘Steely Dan recorded their first album 23 years after Melbourne’s last victorious season’

LD: ‘I’ve got better hair than Eddie, so impressive. Now I’m going to get excited about something. Jordan Jones!!’

.....  

Seriously, while I’m loving the Sat Night exposure, it’s a terrible Seven combo. Richo and Lingy are fine, but Darcy and Mclachlan’

Darcy offers nothing. He is a moronic automated cliche machine. I’m Staggered he has a job in media at all, let alone a prominent one 

take him out and the rest would look better

absolutely Darcy is Dopey - how many times did he muck up Barassi coaching and 1965 before correcting himself to say it was 1956 and, well, Barass was playing for us then! and it was actually 1965 when we last won the first 8 - awful Dopey trash that 7 dishes up.

Then Dopey called our #23 James Jordan - Jones twice before correcting himself.

We all make errors but Darcy is lazy and that's how come he makes errors.

Has Cameron Ling ever said anything interesting or insightful in his entire life. For such a tough competitive beast of a fooballer to be such a vanilla inane pundit. Given his playing style i would have expected a no nonsense commentary style. It's anything but.

You have shown the blokey/ in joke crap they go on with. I cannot watch 7 commentary/ pre game crap. Silence is golden.

My local has turned off commentary and even had a note up for a while saying, "Upon popular request -- no commentary!" 

They have music on low playing in the background now. Much better.

Ling is like most of the rest - LAZY LING 

Duck has input but I can't listen to a man who has done what he has and been allowed to waltz back into the media

That unsociable bloke from Hypocrite Hwy club the Awks (Hodge) - he speaks in a dialect I can't understand.

Hodge sounds like he speaks into a Messerschmitt gun (speaks so rapidly) that has a silencer on it (through his nose).

Hodge like Duck - allowed to do things and all is forgiven ... it's part of Ch 7's Midnight Oil Club (Short Memories)  with the chair of the Club Matthews!

AFL commentary is just jobs for the boys. Luke Darcy is a great example. He has a voice like fingernails on a chalkboard and he doesn’t know the players’ names. There had to be thousands of better candidates out there.

Two professional callers who sound good and know the players’ names, with one ex-footballer or coach for special comments that are insightful (aka, not Ling or Dal Santo) would be great. But nah, let’s just fill the box with dribbling morons instead. And Hamish McLaughlin might not be an ex-footballer but I definitely include him in the latter category.

I don't mind Richo, but the rest offer nothing.  The quicker they get the only knowledgable footy person back on the team in Daisy Pearce the better!

Should get 10 year olds to call the game.  They will know all the players by sight and their stats off the top of their head.

Special comments can be handled by retired footballers.

Duck screwed his club and his “mate” not a person to look up to or listen to his opinions.  We all make mistakes but Ch7 it’s huge,  not sure WoS Ron Casey would be happy,

glad he is not ours !

The thing I hate most about him is the way he speaks. It’s as though he has a mouthful of marbles and he’s trying not to let any of them fall out. 
He only completes about 20% - 30% - max of each individual word he speaks. The other 80% just sadly meld into one another. 
And while one can be forgiven eliding a syllable here and there, Darcy commits the dreaded double: two syllables missing from a two-word, four-syllable phrase! Instead of saying “Port Adelaide” he says “Pohr-Lay.”

End of rant. 
Go Dees!!!!

I found the conversation they had with TMac after the game on 7 a really interesting example of what they think their role is. Tom spoke eloquently and very insightfully about the complexity of his preparation and both Ling and Darcy looked at each other in way that suggested this was all a bit high brow for the audience. 

I really do think they’ve been told to commentate to a grade 4 level - ‘go in harder’, ‘run faster’, ‘take a speccy!’

Surely it can’t be an accident. It’s such a shame that we have to accept such low assumptions of us as an audience. It’s pretty insulting.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
