Ben Brown makes a huge difference to our team

Having a big fwd who will mark above his head takes a lot of attention away from Fritta and JvR and splits the defence 

Just good to have a big presence to be mindful of as a defender as well. As long as he doesn't have to do too much defensive running he's still a good target.

I'm proud to say that today's match was the first Melbourne game I've attended interstate. 

What a bloody win. Couldn't be prouder of the boys.

And here’s me 3 weeks ago saying Brown and TMac are dead and cooked. I bow before thee in great apology. That goal from Ben on 50 when the crowd’s meth had really kicked in……awesome

Credit for putting the hand up. Very few do.

Hung around all night, great resilience on display where Port clamped down a lot of players like Fritsch, Petracca and Pickett. ANB, Langdon, BBB were so good, great to see Windsor kick his first. All this without May. One of the best wins in Goodwin era, a genuine contender with a lot more upside to come.

It's March you just want wins on the board, playing premiership footy now is pointless.

Dumbest comment of the year. Did you expect us to win a different way or? Make it make sense with some people 🤦

ANB is a freak, he’s gone to an A grader this year

I wouldn’t say an A grader. However, he’s an improving playing even at his age. It’s more the mental now. ANB is athletic, with a tank, but a cooler head than we see. He is aging well, and he will improve.

Fitness - 11/10. we ran over the top.

Midfield/stoppage/clearance - 3/10 for first 3 quarters, 15/10 for last quarter. 

Field kicking - 1/10 for 3 quarters. 8/10 last quarter.

Lever, Viney, Max, BBB, - epic leadership. 

Goal kicking - 9/10.

Umpiring was poor to both teams, no advantage. 5/10

He's on fire this year.  Was key tonight when Oliver and co were being held back.

    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.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again headlining another blockbuster at the MCG to kick off the round of footy.
