It was right in front of where we were sitting and I don’t think the footage does how hard he went at the ball the justice it deserves…it was reckless!

Viney has taken his game to another level this year. He might be up there in the Bluey imo.

I love the bloke

His best ever season for sure.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it but I loved Melksham pulling down the Jacko freo jumper at the start of the game. 

Not sure whether to interpret it as maintaining respect for the club, or respecting the fact that Jacko is still a Dees player or just outright not copping shït from freo fans, but loved that from the milkshake. 

I could also just be massively reading into something that has no merit, either way I'm pumped with the win and stoked with how Melbourne like that performance was.

Yes, love that. I am sure he will get a little bit of ‘fan respect’ nonsense. The club should laugh it off - the fan wanted a reaction and they got one.

Don't think that because no one has commented on the umpiring that it was lovely, it wasn't. They must be blind because there was a lot of interference happening to Mac and Oliver,  jumper holding and mark scragging plus now the occasional kidney punching behind the play.

Pity that a good young ruckman reverts to that stuff.

IMO his on field leadership has surpassed Max’s. I still think Max is the correct choice as skipper (seeing how he brings all the players’ together off-field), but Viney just stamps his influence on games like a man possessed. He is the one out the front willing to take all the hits and lead by example.

You don’t have to be captain to lead. Take us to the promised land, Jack.

I reckon Hibberd should get another run around next year. 

Gus in the midfield let's Salem do his job too (as the half back link up). If we absolutely have to wouldn't mind him going back to a defensive wing position.

We have the cattle it's just putting them in the right paddock.

Hibbo well and truly goes around again a revitalised Dee. The lads walk taller when Hibbo's on deck.

Melk I'm loving what he is bring back to the table, he does not let interceptors take grabs at all competes above his height range.

How about some of those bullet passes.

He is not getting huge numbers but Tommy Sparrow is bringing some serious physicality to the team. Great signs for him!

Another young bloke JJ just seems to make the right decision and play such high percentage football. 
I am a big fan of both!

Spot on about both.

JJ, in addition to his decision making, has the knack of being where the ball is.

Doesn't look the most athletic, but plays tall and is just a natural footballer.

Love Sparrow's grunt.

Where are my Demonlanders at? I owe you some beers.

Hey Andy @Demonland Shoulda told me you were in town. 
I was in a ground level suite just beside the Dee’s bench dining on beef cheeks, roasted pumpkin and puréed spuds whilst demolishing a good ~12 single fin stubbies. 
just got home and having dessert. 🍃

I'm normally a Melksham critic, but his past 2 games have shown that he has premiership qualities. His chasing and tackling (at times) have been worthy of ongoing inclusion, and at his age, show that he is dead serious about keeping his place in the team.

 

Reckon he may have ben stung badly by the May comments and wants to shove it up his [censored].

All this without BBB and Tmac.

To be fair it wasn't the right conditions to be missing their output. 

It did appear as though our forward line and movement was no where near as clogged up as has been usual..

I completely missed this, so he ripped this freo jumper off a Jacko cut out i take it?

No one messes with Jake the Snake.

Some muppet was waving a Fremantle guernsey with Doggas name on it in front of our boys as they ran onto the ground. Jake wasn’t putting up with that $h!t

As Melbourne a win as I've seen this year. 

Steady-time, strangulation football at its finest. We never streaked ahead in an 8 goal burst in 6 minutesto put the game out of reach, but we didn't need to. It was 3 goals to us, maybe one or 2 to them and then 4 to us spaced out over a 25 minute stanza of play.

Frontal pressure was back in a big way tonight. Hands were up, bullocking was done and chasing ever present. Coast to coast ball movement came about from organization behind the ball and getting out back by utilzing defensive fifty pressure.

Big hand to Fritta. He might have unfairly copped a lot of shizer, but there have been multiple times over the last few months where he hasn't passed off when he should. He did so tonight and probably got let down by his team mates who didn't convert. But that he did was a great sign.

Jack Viney was absolutely outstanding. Hard as a cat's head, he is now using his footy smarts too. He's not just like a bulldog charging into packs. He's got a few steps and dance moves that he used sensationally tonight. When the time has come to stand up and be counted, Jack has done it consistently from 2015 onwards. We made the right choice when we picked Maxy as captain. However, should he be hit by a bus tomorrow, I have full confidence Jack would do an exemplary job in the role.

Melksham is also indicating to me that he might have something in the tank for this September. What I have noticed is his chase and defensive pressure (which was his weakness leading into the '21 finals). Quite a few times have I seen him charging flat chat out of the forward 50 to try to pin down a flanker running the ball out of there. He doesn't have the jets of a Kozzy or Hunt, but the effort is what is telling for mine. He could be invaluable with his ability to connect moving forward into the fifty.

Gus was also invaluable tonight. We talk about swingmen in football. He would have to be it. Put him back and he plays taller than his height. Put him on the wing and his committment to 1% and clogging up space makes him indispensible. Put him in the guts and he is in his wheelhouse. I thought he might have been gone by the end of this week, but I'm bloody glad he stayed.

Next week, it's Collingwood. Since 2020, I like the fact that we rarely let teams beat us more than two times in a row. We owe them for Queen's Birthday and a win will be a major statement from us. Either way, it will be a ripping game hopefully!

Vineys spin out of a tackle at full pace on that far wing which led to a goal was just beautiful.

God he's great to watch at the moment.

I was at just below ground level which was a rather weird viewing point and the  first time I’ve been at that level - usually watching from above.
But watching at ground level and with the contest only 2 metres away, to hear not only Viney and Petracca and co’ in those whack and smack duels along with Jordan and many more 

Everyone was just cracking in hard and it was superb to watch and the different perspective was pretty neat for a change.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
