How did we win that?

just maybe it will give us some confidence that will rub off into better performances. Team changes do need to take place.

We won, but we're not winning the premiership

I hate the attitude of fans who have somehow forgotten decades of mediocrity and don't enjoy wins. FFS. 

Huge lifter. That sort of win will give the boys some extra bounce. 

Jayden Hunts last couple of minutes were unreal

Petty is AA, he is just brilliant. Brayshaw huge all night. Please I cannot watch us kick it to Brown anymore, thank you, like you, but not the KPF we need.  Thanks Melks love your work. Cannot understand how we got picked apart in the contest, without our defence we would have been blown up. Salem looking better each week.

There needs to be a minimum for four changes for next week.

A totally complacent team playing a style that has been worked out with a forward line that couldn’t kick straight if their lives depended on it.

 

I fully stand by these comments.

That last three minutes was wallpaper over cracks.

Barring a miracle. The Bulldogs should knock the Blues out of the finals now. If we can win next week then we should secure a top 4 spot.

Always liked what Melksham brings, hope this helps to bring some others to Team Melk, because he was the difference. 

He doesn't rack up the most possessions or tackles, but he generally actually thinks about his possessions and is really crafty.

How are we not just making up the numbers?

We've just played a game against a possible finals contender that gave their absolute all and we won. Last week we played another incredible game against another genuine finals contender and only just got done when we really should've won if it wasn't for some poor kicking.

In no way are we making up the numbers.

Confession time. 3 minutes to go I got up and said "we're done, we can't do it from here. We've lost all our close ones this year". Well, bugger me.

That was as close to a final as you will get. Not a great spectacle, but as tough as hell. Both sides will be very sore over the next 2 days. 

Delighted, shocked, annoyed, Exhiirated. 

I did that with 14 minutes to go and turned it back on with 30 seconds to go.

Hamish McLaughlin just openly admitted that he was barracking for us to kick a point so that it guaranteed Carlton a spot in the finals.

Hey Hamish, how about you and Gil [censored] off to an island and never return.

Jayden Hunt played I think one of the best quarter of his career. He was immense. 

Really good quarter - great drive and connection. He's coming back to form.

Absolutely. I'm rapt for that last 60 seconds but there is no way this forward line in this team wins a flag this year.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
