Just had the misfortune of watching Saturday Countdown and Derm “jokingly” asked Brayshaw if Oliver throws it more than Tom Brady.

I don’t normally get upset about media but it just showed complete and utter disrespect for not only Oliver, but also Brayshaw and a team that is 11 and 1.

I dare say Derm wouldn’t have asked it to a player from a “big” club. It just feels like a lot of the media are having a hard team getting it through their head that we are the best right now.

Dermie is lazy and offers no insight whatsoever. I don’t know why Fox continue employing him. Champion player, dud analyst.

We shouldn’t get too precious about his comment though. Reality is Clayton throws a few just like most other midfielders in the league. Dermie spent the previous 15 mins of the segment praising us so let’s not feed this persecution complex many of us seem to harbour.

[censored] Dermie

 

I’m cringing SO hard right now. Obvs Brereton has been waiting for an opportunity to use his absolutely hilarious Murali and Tom Brady barbs and what better time than with a Melbourne player. Has probs been practicing it in front of the mirror all season.

I plead guilty thought at half time  its over  thought due for a down game   that it was only 2nd loss for year and then 2 nd half   very well played  and bowled  by the boys  and they are my boys.

To me, it was just more of a reflection of Derm and other people in the media having trouble accepting Melbourne are now good so he’s trying to deflect.

I am sick of the media.

Just read the report in the HSun. Said Zorko would be stiff to get suspended (for a deliberate elbow to TMac's head!) but Tom Sparrow would most likely go - which would be ridiculous - Sparrow turned his body around to shepherd the ball and Rich ran into his back!

Watched the replay, absolutely putrid umpiring. 

At least 7 obvious push in the backs in the first half

Bs free to Charlie Cameron in the last 4m to go

8m to go a lions kick in and they had a runner in the 50m arc

Daniher spun 360 and the ball his the ground,  then he kicks,  play on. 

And we hit the post 4 times. 

Weid is a bust. Bring in sideshow bob

Agree with all but I thought the Charlie Cameron one was there although "tiggytouchwood". Fortunately ANB got it back straight away. Lions got 3-4 soft frees around the 4m mark.

It is easy to forget how good big Max is - he is putting together a career that puts him in the conversation about being the best ruckman in the history of the game.

I know Max will just put up with the way other teams treat him, but by God, the club really should bring this to the attention of the umpire dept and ask for clarification. Being smashed in the head week after week with not one free.

Geelong at the Graveyard Round 23. Bring. It. On.

Surely if we are top two or four and they are fighting for the four the game should not be played down there if crowds are allowed back by then. I can hear their protests but really that ground is not up to AFL standard. A better deal for away supporters is urgently required. A cat member told me a couple of years ago that only 200 seats were allocated for away supporters. PATHETIC.

He had no role last night and was simply quiet.

What do you mean he had no role? Every player has a role.

I actually agree with them. Zorko and Tmac was a bit of close off the ball by play from what I can see it did not seem to  affect Tmac. Free kick was the right decision end of story for mine.

Dermie is an old sad loser desperately trying to hang onto whatever tiny relevance he has left. 
His “analysis” is about as in depth as a shallow pool of horse crap.

Of course every player has a small role to play. But how can you say he played his role when the coach clearly says otherwise. 

When Goodwin says he wasn't given a specific role and was in fact quiet, then the coaching staff feel he wasn't up to the required standard they expected on the night.

I uavent heard the interview, but fair enough. I was simply going on what I watched. He's played a lot worse games than that and kept his spot.

It looks like he went to McCluggage in the second half to try and reduce his influence. Perhaps it was just by virtue of positioning rather than a set role.

Every one of those 'examples' he clearly handballs. Fair dinkum he is a .... up ...... Can't believe they pay him to comment on football

How about looking at how tbe dogs move the ball

Oliver's hands are very quick but that doesn't mean he's throwing it. Obviously too quick for Derm to pick up.

    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

    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
