Can't believe there's some on here still not happy with a 50 point win. Take your miserable selves to Maccas for a happy meal.

Maybe look at the process of how we won compared to margin of game, there was some brilliant play but that 2nd and parts of the 3rd quarter against a bog ordinary side was ordinary.

He looked slightly more comfortably down back, but he could hardly move in front of us a number of times.

As in gasping for air….he’s not even close to fit. He’s just missed the entire preseason and barely been able to run  since August

The Bawlers (called ball at every tackle in the first half) seem to be malnourished, but didn't appear hungry. Ramadan is halfway through. I think they have taken the fasting too far. They couldn't get a serving into the forward line. The chips aren't going to work, they mainly led to apple turnovers or a slow cooked stoppage for us. The dinner plan was missing all day. What is Mitchell thinking, nothing on their menu. They were too small, lacking energy, and starved for space. Comprehensively beaten to a pulp. Why do they boo Gawn and Tracc? Both are Michelin stars. Why doesn't the umpire protect Clarry from thuggery? They tried to tenderise him, he just got tougher. The Fritta train is good eating. Kossie will steal your lunch when it is within your grasp. Tracc is the head chef. Plenty of sharing plates going around. Hope Maysie and his ribs aren't cooked. Great serving by the MFC, ruthless, and they responded every time the Bawlers got a sausage roll. How are those apples?

When a team knows they have the other side absolutely cooked, they get lethargic and have a lapse. It was a methodical picking apart from a very good side.

Home to watch the reply after spending the day at the GP.

Good to see Fritta have a good day - you called it @WalkingCivilWarWho's going to kick a bag next week?

Anyone. I’m not fussy. 😅 Maybe that Frittata boy will go back to back. Sat with his mum for the entire match and the relief was palpable. She was so proud ❤️💙

So a lapse for a quarter and half is OK by you then...

Loved Frittas game on Sardinia.

Kossie was great and tracc was superb.

Billings is coming along well but not sure he knows our game inside out yet.

Bit disappointed as I told a Hawks supporter Dees by 10 goals.

Go Dees

They over-celebrated pretty much all of their goals. Embarrassing 

yes the Lewis crowd pump up was embarrasing, he acted like he'd put them in front. they were about 5 goals down.

How much I love beating Hawthorn at the MCG!! So many years we sat and watched them tear us apart. The joy in seeing Hawks fans leaving early is as good a feeling as winning.

They look so smug though, even in defeat.

I hate Hawthorn. Love you Hawthorn supporting wifey.

Healy’s problem is he’s the Ian Chappell of footy commentary

He was our captain then he left for the bigger money at Sydney just when we were getting into finals. Just when we needed him. 

Gerard was never captain of Melbourne.  His brother Greg was after R. Flower and before G. Lyon.

Take it easy, they through everything they had at us for those 2 quarters and we easily held them at arms length, we wore them out and toasted them in the last.

I was behind the goals and so I saw him quite a bit at both ends. He looked ok to me. He wasn’t his usual self at ground level, but for someone coming back from one of the most serious injuries you can have, and with little pre season, he looked ok. 
I think May and Lever going down didn’t help our plan to possibly sub him off. He will be better for the run.

did anyone else think that the briefest review i can remember with not multiple angles etc of BBBs goal was incorrect.

The whole ball had passed behind the goal post but not past the padding on the goal post. I think the goal line is only as thick as the post not the padding, If im correct the whole ball was over the line.

Im giving Bennie another goal

I was behind the goals and 100% that was touched well before the line. It wasn’t a goal and a review was not needed.

It was definitely the correct call.

Go redlegs.

Professional win with some terrific individual efforts and highlights.

Goody looks a genius with his selections. 

Hore replaces may.

And Petty goes back to cover Lever.

Despite losing our two best key defenders for a half, on a perfect day for footy the oppo can't break 50 points.

Far too inflexible and unable or unwilling to make in-game moves. Must have been Mini's idea.

His disposal is not elite, it's God ordinary at times cannot fault his run and endeavour but his disposal by hand and foot under pressure is not elite.

Where's the thumbs down button?

Statistically he might be considered elite, but his disposal and decision making has gone through the roof.

5-10 times today he would have previously blasted away, but consistently made the right decision. 

He's started beautifully this season.

Really?? First game in 9 months. Took a great pack mark, missed 2 relatively easy shots at goal and then moved down back without incident. What exactly were you expecting?

Freedom of movement. My 75 year old father could outrun him today.

As I said, he looked better down back and took that great pack mark in the first quarter, but otherwise his movement and agility seemed severely hampered to me and others around us at the game.

No, not as in gasping for air. See above.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
