If we maintain our form, our defensive & midfield are better than all & on par with the tigers, barring injuries and mental toughness & selfless team footy we should finish top 4, as MFC supporters we are anxious & hopping the falling of the cliff dosent raise its ugly head.

You know you're having a bad season when a draw increases your percentage by 3%.

I'd go as far to say it's impossible. 😂

Stick that up ya Jack Reiwoldt you [censored] gronk!

Sydney had no answers last night. Very poor performance. They'll be purely making up the numbers come finals time.

Richmond are the team i fear the most. If they get on a roll they'll be hard to stop. Hoping West Coast can beat them tomorrow.

Geelong can't be discounted but they are so old and September is still in the distance. They'll run out of gas.

Dogs and Lions pretenders. Their game plan doesn't hold up against us.

We can/have beat them all. 

The game plan(s) stack up.

It's now merely the proposition of whether we bring the pressure on any particular game day, adhere to structures and/or remain relatively injury free.

There is no doubt about our Tier One credentials 

It's been a long time coming... 😇:)

I thought Geelong on Thursday were very average and think the Lions are more a danger than them.  On Thursday as soon as Port got on top around stoppages Geelong got carved up.  They conceded 14 goals from 45 inside 50s and most in groups quite quickly, because they are running forward of the ball a lot.  I’m looking forward to Geelong versus dogs next week. Whoever wins the ignorant media will be touting as flag favourites.  Whoever loses will be the bigger threat as they ‘may’ fix their clear front running issues that will come unstuck big time in finals.

Been flat out all day, thought I would unwind with some footy. Switched on try Freo v Suns. O my goodness, it is appalling. Slow, atrocious skills, 2 poor game plans.

I just started watching about 15mins ago, had the same thought, worst 15mins of footy I’ve seen for awhile, just basic turnover after turnover by both teams. 🤪

5 minutes into half-time and the Auskickers have already outscored both teams. It felt like we went back to 16 minute quarters.

For the advocates of increasing the finals series to include a wildcard game (and the 21st century trend of rewarding mediocrity) there's every chance it could be played by these two teams.

I know it destroyed our season but even placing that bias aside, Cairns is hands down the worst place in Australia to play a game of footy.

I don't think I'll ever stop being annoyed that we lost that game against Adelaide. I mean, it may be the last thing I say before I die "I wish we hadn't lost to the bloody croowwssss…"

Then I cark it.

I like the predominantly yellow Adelaide guernsey much more than their home version. The game itself though is rubbish and fitting of it's backwater venue.

A couple of things I've noticed again tonight that puzzle me about today's footballers:

1.  The practice of spinning the ball in their hands as they're lining up for goal.

2.  Taking a mark in the forward line then walking back not facing the goals.

The first may just be a habit but the second was drummed into us from under 12s as a big no-no.

Hard to blame the ground for this display from Adelaide. Putrid like their jumper.

What's wrong with this stadium? The stadium isn't to blame for Adelaide being shocking, and us ruining our chances after flying up on the day.

2 quick goals and adelaide are less than 4 goals down with a half to play. And with the way they're playing they could get a lot closer than that.

How in the world did Adelaide beat us? They are trash. 

If the game took a look at itself in the mirror, and saw this game. It would make some serious life changes!!

    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. Were th

    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
