Goody needs to give the team a spray and demand a lift from our leaders. They shouldn't rock up for QB with such a poor attitude. Across the board we've been sloppy and disjointed. Salem only player switched on today.

The pies are not great so we're not our of this by any means but i wish we didn't make things unnecessarily hard for ourselves all the time.

My changes…….Max to FF.  Weed and Jacko to ruck. Trac, Clarry and rotate Hunt/Langdon/Kozzie through the middle. Harmes to go with De Goey if he starts in the middle of course.

No Grundy and we still aren’t doing well in the middle.

They are playing up tempo footy and we are behind the pace at the moment.

Need our captain to lift & lead the way. Trac needs to start dominating, Langdon has to start running & seriously do something with weiderman. Oh & Pickett needs to do something. Yes he is exciting but it's time he he started to put himself into games

Terrible so far.

Lucky to only be 16 points down.

Turning point ... TMac running into open goal and missing.

Lol.. people just waking up now to how useless Weideman is? Dear lord.

He hasn't been great but I'm hoping to see Mcdonald lift in the second half as well. When he lifts, the team lifts. The second half against Brisbane was a great example of that.

People bang on about Melksham being best buds with Goody but I’d love to know what Weid has on him. How he keeps getting a game with one good game in six seasons when we have a proven 60 goal a year forward fully fit is one of the greatest selection mysteries of our time.

QB is about Neale, not about Bucks. Let’s turn it back on in the third quarter, wrestle back the lead and get it done.

really need to start linking some of these possession chains into positive forward entries, not long-bombs to packs in the pockets

Lol Gary just loves to sink the boots in at times doens't he?

I understand it's his job but sometimes I can hear the joy in his voice when we're down 

He actually loves the club. He’s just frightened of being labelled as biased. So when he sinks the boots in, it helps the ‘unbiased’ narrative.

I reckon Clarry more than anyone has some credits in the bank. He can’t win every game for us. He get 20+ touches in the second half. No doubt

Doesn't matter. His complete lack of effort in the first 30 minutes set the tone for the rest of the boys and gave Collingwood a lift across the board. Not only didn't he work for the ball, he wasn't even within 50m of most contests. Not good enough and this predicament is not solely on his shoulders but largely on his shoulders as well as Fritsch's ball use and Gawn's lack of domination.

Couldn’t be playing worse. We look slow, tired, unstructured, unskilled. Everything we haven’t been this season. 

+4 inside 50s but three goals down. Kicking it to Moore isn’t helping but that’s in part because Weideman is just so far off it he’s not worth aiming for. So many of their goals have come from our forward half turnovers. 

About the only positive is that we’re only 16 points down. We’ve flipped switches a number of times this year. Let’s hope we can again, because we’re sure as hell not winning this the way we’re playing so far. 

All talls have also failed to at least get the ball to ground as well albeit with few opportunities so far but they have all failed.

Tracc's Hollywood handballs have also been  super frustrating to watch so far.

Defence a shambles. Lever hates defending and would rather just sit out for the easy ball.. [censored] man up!

Max getting taught a lesson by Lunch who's played 4 games.. that's right 4 [censored] games!

This is Adelaide written all over again. 

He's been given a fair go now Daz, He can't complain about the run he has been given, the time has come for BBB.

We paid money to come to our club and kick goals.

Get him in and just let him work with Tmac.

Fair call. What a difference a poor game from him makes. But Trac hasnt been great either.

And when we do go forward we look disinterested and are beaten everytime.

Why Sam W cannot hold a mark is strange. His timing is off. 

Tmac has gone missing and we really rely on him.

Heres hoping we can do what we did against the Lions and flick the switch on.

Im not sure if we can. The body language isnt great.

Win ..lose or draw can we at least start tackling much more and show some physicality.

We are top v a  bottom side ffs....lets at least make it hard for them.

I'm positive we're being lazy.
I'm positive we're being outcoached
I'm positive we'll probably lose this by a poor umpiring decision and a kick
I'm positive this may be our mid year slump
I'm positive we're much better than this
Time to lift Dees .

    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
