My wife yelled and banged tables then went to a dark room for a few minutes.

Then came out, checked the fixture on her phone and has marked Round 22, August 14th for revenge.

Ohhh I love it!

When you fumble all game and bomb it long into your forward line every time, you deserve to lose.

Forget the umpiring, as they are not tough  guys and they were simply scared of being hurt in Adelaide, if they payed the last holding the ball and deliberate.

Also whatever stops we were wearing, well someone made a big mistake. We constantly fell over and it cost us badly.

Kinda conflicted. Know it was a loss we had to had, but would much rather it have been against a top team like Bulldogs, than a dud team like Adelaide.  I hope this is a serious wake up call to not get too confident. Maybe they’ll take the next game more seriously. I’m worried that we had a pretty good team even though Salem wasn’t playing.

Sad ?

Adelaide aren't duds. It just proves that you need all 18 up and going to win  not just 8 or 9

Been a great player but Jetts has had his day. Weid has too, it was 3 years ago against Geelong. Good to see a few more are starting to wake up to him.

Don't forget Jordon. Everytime he touched it he turned it over.

He was poor today. He's been great for us this season but i reckon he needs a rest

well our winning streak had to come to an end in typical melbourne style against a bottom side. i think our team sometimes get ahead of themselves and take bottom sides to lightly, as they usually the ones that roll us first.  Missed Salem, jetta while i love the guy and what he has given the club he is a close down players and not a distributor like salem, probably not the best choice for tonight. But it is what it is, umpiring was not great, but the crows should not have been anywhere near as close to us. our kicking for goal is still poor at times. it cost again tonight. some of the selflessness that we have seen in previous weeks was not as evident this week. Hopefully this will bring the best out of the players in the next few weeks.

Crows deserve credit and are better than a bottom side.  They beat the Cats and we’re in the game against WC for a long time.  
Dees were a bit off today but Adelaide thoroughly deserved the win.

In the context of this year's application of deliberate, it is almost impossible to believe that non deliberate happened. The umpire is possibly not a cheat, but he is certainly a world class gutless squibb.

Why was Petty played on Walker?  Spargo handballed, while under pressure, 'towards' a team mate.  Result? deliberate.  If we got beaten by 3 or 4 goals, I maybe could swallow that.  Off our game? Sure we we were, but to lose by one point, against interstate, home ground umpires hurts even more.

Some of our so called stars have been off for a few weeks.  Which means, with the BIG tests coming up, they need to have a good hard look at themselves.  LEAD guys.  Please, lead.

A point loss, under those circumstances?  I am gutted

Weid touch free last quarter. Mistake in hindsight dropping BBB.

Yeah I feel like the addition of brown and or weid has been to the detriment of our forward line. I reckon I preferred the unpredictability of the forward line without them

I wondered about this Red. I couldn't believe the number of times our players lost their feet.

Been feeling for a while we were not playing as well as our position suggests. We have been winning, but not in great form. Had a dream start with an easy draw, now the season starts here.

CONS

Weidemann couldnt force a contest when it mattered late. 

Fritsch did his best impersonation of a turnstile - zero pressure.  
May looks disinterested

When Gawn comes back into the defensive 50 and spoils our own players to the advantage of the other team it makes me want to throw my remote across the lounge....

PROS

Petty builds his reputation

Lever stood up under ENORMOUS personal pressure. Class act. 

At that level of pressure you quickly can identify where players deficiencies are as they bubble up. Will be an interesting review. 

Also now we understand that when the game is played like that the maggots keep the whistle in the pocket.

Some reasons we lost: 

Gawn dropping regulation marks and palming it into open goals 

May getting done over by a big eared inbred bogan

Trac and Harmes playing like millionaires 

Jetta is done.

Hunt is only good when Salem is covering his [censored]. 

Weideman and Fritsch actual liabilities 

JJ nervous with ball in hand 

Poor defensive effort all over the ground in the first half. Lazy, unaccountable football allowing Adelaide to run down the corridor unaccounted and kick easy goals from clearances 

Turnovers. Cannot hit the side of a barn. 

mostly crap.

Just watched a replay of the last minute.

My goodness . Funny how people talk about being robbed and then theres that.

Wonder if it will be discussed.

Probavly a case of yea maybe we got that wrong but dont worry it only decided the game.

Plus if thats not deliberate then they MUST scrap the rule.

Also just in advance, can we also have a moratorium on being told to ‘lighten up’ or ‘we’re 9-1 you’d think someone died round here’ or any other cool thing that some freedom fighter wants to say? Most of us will see the light eventually but give us 1 hr at least.

Can i also suggest that posters refrain from inflicting their MFCSS on the rest of us.

We lost a game by one point. It's disappointing but we can't win every game. I believe we can bounce back and bring our A game next week.

The old man said to me earlier today.

"At my funeral, I want the Melbourne Football Club players to lower my coffin into the grave, so they can let me down one last time"

Not up to it today. At least it was a team effort (apart from Clarry)

Interested in seeing what comes of The Great Reset!

    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
