They were rabid tonight.

2 fights around us after the siren. One I am 90% was between 2 Carlton supporters. Why do security go home half way through the last? I had to pull 2 guys apart and no cops or security anywhere.

I remember 2 Demons fans getting physical after a loss to the Blues at Princes Park, back in the 1990's. It definitely is sad when that happens and stays with you when many happier footy memories fade.

Melksham effectively locked his position in the team for finals. Hunt as well. Gonna be tough for Harmes to get back into the squad

Fantastic to get a win in front of the faithful after losing 6 out of their last 7 games in VIC.

You could’ve written your own ticket for a Melbourne win after Curnow kicked what seemed like the sealer at the time.

Carlton supporters don’t bother me as much as others here, the Filth are far worse. However, can someone advise why they were booing Langdon tonight? Pretty sure he was trash talking Collingwood last week and had absolutely nothing to do with Carlton.

I think harmes could play sparrows role more effectively but clearly the FD sees sparrow as a lock for the 22. 
Nothing against sparrow I just think harmes gives us more flexibility and is more dynamic.

It was only a couple of years ago that you thought Viney was an absolute crab and shouldn’t play. 
it’s okay to rip into players when they’re playing like 💩 but fail to acknowledge that you’re wrong when they become a serious player. 

Yeah nah, can't recall ever calling him a crab. There have been times where he's frustrated the [censored] out of me with his game style and still does.

His rugby league style football in getting the footy and trying to take on 10 blokes was costing us momentum in games and coughing up the footy to the opposition by getting pinged with the ball.

He had to take this [censored] out of his game quick smart because it wasn't doing the team any good. He has moments of this still, but it's a lot more limited now which is probably why he's finally having career best form.

Fail to recognise when I'm wrong? Bro I'm the only one in here who puts their hand up when I get it wrong.. 

I could easily call out others for being wrong and not admitting it but what's the point in that.

Far out. That was without a doubt the most tense game I've ever attended but I'm thrilled that we were finally able to win a really close match.

Melksham can take a bow. He has been making a massive difference to our forwardline lately. He must be selected for the finals.

I'm probably going to watch the replay of that Pickett goal 10 times.

That was fun in the end, but excruciating for 95% of the game.

Our refusal (mostly May) to kick to the other side of the ground out of defence when we had free players in the last qtr was nearly the death of me. Long to Brown all night was terrible, also the fact we never where at the fall of the ball. The bloke playing on Brown had an AFL record for spoils .

If it was two Carlton supporters why did you bother pulling them apart

I thought Melksham was finished and especially so after he punched May. That punch relaunched his career. 

Was that a straight left jab or a right cross?

The Dees are not playing well but if we can stay in the top 4, anything can happen. If we had won by 30 points I would not have been jumping around the place like I had kicked that last goal. Enjoy!

Brown got more involved in the last quarter and contributed. Fritsch has a bad night but laid almost a team high  8 tackles which is great work when not getting the ball.

We did get 23-13 frees, but what it doesn’t tell you is goals from frees. I think they won that 4-1. It should be a third scoring based stat: goals from turnover, goals from stoppage,l and goals from frees. I think that stat would tell a massive story about umpire influence. Probably why we don’t hear much about it.

There is a reason why its not an official stat.

Riots in the stands imagine that stat coming up on the scoreboard.

Don’t change mate. 
 

We all support our club but still have varying opinions. 
Nothing wrong with that. ❤️💙💪

Just back in south Melb 
Carlton played very well.  It was very tight game, they stuffed up the last two minutes. 
I thiught every player deserved applause they all put in   Some perhaps more obviously than others. 
it was freezing at ground level.

and some of the umpiring was bizarre 

but that was a sweet sweet win  bestvoressure game I can remember us winning.

I just loved how he turned on the tackler after kicking the goal and stuck it to him.

Our coaches will see that as a win unfortunately. The only reason we won this game in the end was because Hunt chose to take the game on with his run. Oh, and no-one has mentioned how Melksham managed to take that mark amongst 3 Carlton players. If that was against the Pies, it wouldn't have happened, and we lose.

Koz got dragged to the ground 3 times off the play in the last. They targeted him.

Makes sense why he was giving it to Newnes? After that goal.

I really hope this win bonds the team together to really kick start our finals run. If you go back to last year, it was the Geelong game which pretty much gave this team the belief we can win any game of football even when you’re down. To be down by 2 kicks with 2 mins remaining and end up winning the game will do wonders for the belief. I can appreciate how the belief of Collingwood is sky high with all these close wins.

It was a win. Would you prefer they saw it as a loss?

    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
