Umps. free kicks count 11-23 to favour the Dogs 
 In 3 words 

Were the difference  

Totally fuc&&)$&(n inconsistent 

Favoured The Dogs

Throwing is illegal 

Absolutely killed us 

Crucified the Dees 

finally … 

Speak up Goodwin  (just say “thought we were a bit stiff on the night and have to review the rule book”)

Ok but totally biased against Viney.  Hit up Brown for a goal. Hit up Kozzy for a goal.  Kicked super goal in the third. 
Nine tackles. At the contest.  
3 words. 
“Very good game”.

Agree Viney average

Gawn no idea of where his mids are clueless ruckwork

Oliver..... sensational

Going on about umpiring like Essendon fans ignores the fact that we still should have run over the top of them but froze and fell to bits against a side one player down on the bench.

Agree with most but not with Viney or Hunt both tried extremely hard and and we’re in our best.

Gawn - Dominated hitouts department

Pickett - Costly early miss

Brown - Costly 2 behinds (and 1 on the full)

Fritsch - Above the knee

Viney - Better than r18

Petracca - Clangers superseded brilliance

McDonald - Lose more weight? (lol)

Oliver - Possible 2 votes

Hunt - 611 metres gained!

Neal-Bullen - Stop getting smothered

May - Some dumb FA's

Salem - Losing his AA 

Harmes - Didn't notice him

Jackson - Rising star slider

Lever - Our best defender

Spargo - Pressuring has declined

Brayshaw - Just a game

Hibberd - Not our worst

Langdon - Season low numbers

Jordon - costly dropped mark

Rivers - rookie soldiering on

Petty - always seems unlucky

Umpiring: A please explain

Disagree with many

trac was very good

petty and Rivers solid

hunt was good

Browns first half was poor but he did show signs in the second. But the damage was done by then

There’s no way the game has passed Viney, proved again what he will do for the club, was in and under all night.

Umpires are cheats

2016 happening again

As I said during the week, the umpires will destroy our game chances, once again, through incorrect use of the whistle (in any way that they 'can get away with'). The attempt is made in every game the MFC plays.

We were In it all night. Midfield matched the dogs, Gawn dominant. 

We were wasteful in attack, again, they were not. 

We missed several gettable shots, they did not.

We failed to take our difficult chances, they did not. 

We got a rough ride from the umpires, they did not. 

Game over...

Agree - had our chances, can';t kick straight.  BBB first two "attempts" were actually pathetic.

It really does feel like a syndicated, 'old boys' conspiratory against the Dees, that many amongst us cannot for some reason accept or acknowledge. It has pressed us, for years; it is still pressing us after we have - as a footy club - re-organised and re-structured against the odds and expectations of 'the rest of them'. We live in hope, as a consequence. Will our Board ever do something about it? Nearly all of the consequences of last night's footy match against the Doggies were in the hands of the umpires and were so delivered across the game without sanction, excepting of course those few that were too blatant to be ignored. However, the power of the whistle applied and re-applied to quell the eveness of the game that would lead to a different end result.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    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
