But that was Dermies point. “The kid can seriously play” he said multiple times and said if he does another thing the MRP might go take a week more due to the other incidents all adding up. Not that I agree but I would never put it past the MRP. And yeah, we would really miss him if suspended.

I can't believe there isn't more indignation over this t**d's blatant hatred of all things MFC.    Surely someone is in a position to call out the bias and hypocrisy?   He is continually launching campaigns like this in the lead-up to finals as he grapples with the alarming possibility we might be a chance.  The other week he launched the throw campaign specifically targeting Clayton Oliver.   I am hoping there are Demonlanders out there with sufficient influence to get a counter campaign launched that shines a light on this punce's agenda.

haha give me a spell, the biggest thug to play the game in the last 40 years having a crack because Fritsch gave Grainger-Barass a slight bump in a marking contest? Perhaps next time he should step on someone's head instead or send their teeth into the 5th row like Brereton did to Tony Free?

His hatred of the MFC is just plain unprofessional and blindingly obvious. He's always making subtle or obvious digs at the Dees.

An example being that the day after our finest win of the season against the Dogs at their joint, Huddo and King were rightly raving about our win on the Fox Footy Saturday midday show. Meanwhile this bloke who has a clear hatred of the MFC had the temerity to claim that the Bulldogs were pretty much the better side on the night aside from conceding a few goals in the first quarter. He labelled the 9-1 Bulldogs performance as 'brave' and that the MFC pretty much stopped to a halt after qtr time despite extending the lead to 41 points in the last quarter.

It might be time for him to be replaced with some fresh/younger analysts.

"People look for things to talk about and clearly this is a thing that people have wanted to talk about, but it's not an issue from my perspective.

"Bayley's the cleanest, fairest player that I've come across and he'll continue to be that way.

"It's his nature, that's the way he plays his footy."

It's funny because Derm used to straight up belt people in the head when he played, and now he's the patron saint of fair play?

The irony is simply too much. The bloke is an absolute moron. 

Someone should ask him if, by extension, that means he was a "faux tough guy" in his days as well ...

I'm bloody delighted that Goody came straight out and backed up Fritta.

No achievement in life is achieved without solidarity, and our club has been much improved on this front.

Look in the mirror Brereton, you and your mate Dippa crossed the line many times, during your time as a player.

Will never forgive Dippa smacking into Robbie Flower, and injuring his shoulder😡

Not concerned if Bailey is doing some slightly cheap stuff off the ball. Most smaller sized forwards do this to gain an edge. Eddy and Toby do it brilliantly.

As Fritsch is one of the um... 'less physical' players on our list, surely Dermie would be loving the idea of him throwing elbows.

Derm is always whinging about people doing perceived filthy things now. He's like an ex-criminal who finds god and tries to lecture all the current crims on what they're doing wrong.

Make no mistake.
Fritta's sneaky mean.
The forearm wasn't an accident and neither was the essendon fella into the goal post.
I particularly enjoyed that one and watching him slink away like nothing happened.

Gotta agree with you fork, I too have seen that harder side in fritta and I reckons he’s copped more than his share and looks for some payback.

Dermie was the real deal. Courageous, tough and a predator. he hunted down a few of our players. I remember him taking out Dean Chiron one day, himself a pretty tough player. This reminds me of the ex player who did a story on a footy hitman operating in the VFL. That player was exposed quite rightly as the thug, Roger Merret. Dermie is doing his job and sinking the boots into the MCC mob he despises at the same time.  Funny part is the modern Hawks are a leafy wealthy Eastern suburbs lot these days and dermie long sincee left the Pines.

I remember that as well.
Demons had been travelling well and of course it happened to be Breretons 1st game back from a 6week suspension at VFL park.
Before the bounce he was running like a peacock right around the forward line attracting the eyes of every-one in attendance.
Got back to the goal square and took off straight up the middle of the ground.
Hit the half forward line at top pace just as the umpire bounced the ball and took out Plattens tagger Chiron in the centre circle sparking a brawl.
Theatre of the like you don't see from the game anymore.
Grinter and co spent the 1st qr trying to even up gifting Brereton a couple frees from high shots which resulted in goals.
Dunstall also cut loose and the game was pretty much over by the end of the qr.
Was the earliest I've ever left a game which was not long after half time.

Well described. Chiron had been in career best form and Dermie destoyed his career that game. I can remember the hit as well. Execution IRA style. gees we could not take a trick with the Hawks. I remember walking back to my car after 77 Preliminary. I dont get involved with opposition supporters much but I did say to a gloating Hawk women on my way back to the car. We will get revenge. She laughed at me, and is still laughing 44 years later. No wonder we get emotional on here some times.

    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
