Viney - better second half

joeboy, if Mark Twain could be invoked given ‘there are lies, damm lies and statistics’. We have taken the liberty of getting the Hoover out of the Demonland broom closet and run a fact check over some of your 3 word summations.

 Brayshaw - horrible until last

Chandler - had minimal impact

Neal Bullen - little involvement again

Pickett - continued poor season 

Spargo - some minor involvement


Total tackles by team 54

Contribution by the ‘quintet’ 20


Statistically the contribution by the quintet would be significant. On %’s alone.

% of  team tackles 37%

i50 18%

Round off contested possessions 15%
Not claiming a sophisticated analysis but remove the quintets’ contributions we struggle to win. Of course plenty of room for improvement as with most of the team’s performance.

Has there ever been a Melbourne game win or lose where we werent mediocre ? FMD  Amazed no-one mentioned on this thread that all pies players rate 6/6.

I was at a Dee's game against the Swans...Bails vs Roos where everyone in red and Blue were better than excellent

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    PREGAME: Rd 20 vs GWS

    The Demons return to the MCG in Round 20 to take on the GWS Giants and will be hoping the injured Captain Max Gawn is fit to return to his role in the ruck as their season is slipping away. Who comes in and who comes out?

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
