What they're saying down at Lulie Street



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Their honesty

  • Outside of a one-point loss to the hands of the Crows at the Adelaide Oval, the Melbourne Demons could not have started this season much better than what they have.
  • It took some convincing, but the football public has seemingly come to terms with the fact that Melbourne, unusually, just aren't that bad of a side anymore. 
  • Just think putting Lynch up against Gawn we might see him disintegrate before our very eyes. 
  • You could lock Gawn in now for the three votes if he’s up against Lynch.
  • SCG: Save us going to watch us get Deestroyed Live.
  • Not expecting much from this one. If we get this game down to a goal or two in the end I'll be impressed.
  • Watching Carlton [censored] the bed against WC yesterday was made somehow less enjoyable because it was at the SCG. Such a crap oval.

Their tactics

  • Roughead will again have his hands full, likely facing off against the meat-eating-machine, Tom McDonald.
  • Moore should take Weideman or the resting ruck.
  • I would personally play Maynard on Fritsch, Quaynor on Pickett and Noble on Spargo.
  • Our Mids should Rove Gawn's Taps like other teams done to Grundy.
  • Cox has to come in. Lynch was okay but Cox can nullify Gawn and play forward. I assume Pendles might have to take the Oliver job. Maybe Crisp for Petracca.
  • Is our dogs breakfast game plan [strangle-ball] better suited to SCG in this instance, as opposed to attempting a shoot-out, or even keeping pace with Dreamons on the MCG?

Their anxiety

  • Kosi Pickett a worry.
  • McCreery needs to shut down Salem.
  • Play Pendles on Gawn when he rests forward?
  • We kicked 1 goal after QT against Sydney on this ground a few weeks back.
  • Gawn and Jackson duo is a big worry for us if Grundy can’t get up.
  • Playing top side in the comp —what are our chances folks?

Their delusion

  • We can win this.
  • I just can’t see how we lose this game.
  • Who stops Petracca though? A shame we delisted Wills, he would have been perfect for that role.

Their schadenfreude

  • Hurts Melbourne in their wallet = tick.

Their trolls

  • It might have been a good chance to pilot playing this fixture at Mt Kosciuszko, with a view to putting it at Hotham Heights when there is no pandemic - it is a Demons leg-up game, after all.
  • Poor Deeeees fans, the MCC toffs, cant have their usual chardonnay, Pimms, brandy lime and soda, plus their cucumber sandwiches, in their usual plush surrounds.
  • Pressure all on Melb, nobody will take us seriously, so maybe an upset brewing, Crows did beat em.
  • Love to beat this mob, then their fans, being in Sydney, can head to the snowfields of Mt Kossie, which is obviously be a lot closer than the usual ski chalets of Mt Buller here.

It doesn't seem very long ago that footy commentators were wondering if tracc could be our de goey. Gone straight past him

I love cucumber sandwiches. Just today I had one with sweet baby Lebanese on homemade sourdough adorned with sumptuous organic butter, but augmented it with some aged Italian parmesan shavings and gar

It's not as much fun to read the opposition fans' sites now that people are taking us seriously.

Where's all the "who have they beaten?", "Pretenders!" posts gone?

I'm also getting a bit sick of my non-MFC friends saying stuff like "well, if my team doesn't win, I hope you guys get up this year". I want us to be hated.

Similarly to Geelong post 2007 and Richmond post 2017, if we go all the way this year, that sentiment would evaporate pretty quickly. Maybe a flag is what we need to be genuinely hated...?

From my experience with Richmond, by the third flag they’ll be well jack of us. Give it time.

Are you sure ? - I have to say, for the cheap thrill of it, I love reading opposition sites where they express the fear of getting flogged by Melbourne, wetting themselves about Gawn (where they usually use words reserved for fictional Marvel superheroes) and green with envy about Trac and Oliver.

I had a hawthorn mate carefully explain to me that everyone will be happy for you for the first one, then everyone will hate you.

Thanks for the laughs QD> Excellent research as usual.

But how out of touch these Pies Trolls are?

As a proud long standing MFC and MCC member, the MCC is the most egalitarian and best value for money club in the universe, club elections held, brilliant organising.... You just need patience (15years in the case of a junior and 25 years for adult) in the waiting list to join. Not expensive by any measure.

and the Pies ?- when was the last time any of these trolls had a say in running their club - 1990's was the last election to the fiefdom run by McGuire and mates.

Any what's wrong with skiing anyway - its a great pasttime the world over.

Have to imagine Grundy gets up for this one? surely?

 

He was listed as two-three (which includes the bye) so I'd say not.  He's their most valuable asset and has had neck problems in the past.  They'll take no chances with him if there is any doubt at all.

Collingwood previously have thrown De Goey on ball against us and it's worked for them, so i'll be interested to see if they try that again, they may not if Grundy is missing. you'd be thinking we should be expecting some dominance in the air

Grundy is a meccano man, he is NOT worth anywhere near what they paid him last year. This is the root of Collingwoods problems.. Overpay then the Sheeeit hits the fan when they cant make ends meet. Even if he does play Max will take whatever is left of his influence and hurl it to the seagulls!

Loved this: the Dreamons

its funny, becuase its true. At least in terms of dreaming of a flag.

In the other sense - ie dream on buddy - it did make reflect for some reason that we have had such a great season thus far, and we are so evidently the real deal, that the dream could be a reality this year.

And that lions win was actually really important in terms of the dream becoming a reality because it gave us an incredible three game break from the teams all on 32 points, in particular the cats third on the ladder and Lions fourth. 

If we lose that game, Lions are on 36 points and we are on 40 points and top 2 becomes a little les likely. And the risk of playing the Lions at the Gabba (or perhaps Port at Adelaide Oval) more likely.

The Port game in round 17 will have a similar importance. And possibly the Cats in the last round.

Top two finish means our first final at the G and the chance of not having to leave the state, even if we lose the qualifying final. A big advantage   

2018 had a dream on buddy vibe - we got a on a roll at the back end and tried to surf the emotion to a flag.  

Different vibe this year. A professional, serious vibe about us. 

And we will be able to use that vibe and the experience of 2018 and the pain of the preliminary to fuel our finals campaign this year

De Goey goes missing when a little accountability is placed on him. Hibberd will school him when forward and he’s not a concern in the middle for mine.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
