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?

Brereton spills so much drivel he even contradicted himself on the same radio spot.

Loves how Richmond committed 8 "snide" acts and how Soldo's ear massage of the opponent reminded him of Clumsy Mumford.

Nasty acts where close to his heart he says in the below article.

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 ...

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?

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.

    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
