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!

How I miss guys like Drew Morphett, Pete Landy,  Sandy Roberts, Lou etc.

7 is just about unlistenable. Cringe worthy! 

Id rather listen to Gary Dempsey commentate lol .... Anyone remember his one game he called?

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.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
