Nth have had plenty of drubbings too. Their percentage has been woeful for years.

If you look at the past 4 years, it's worse than any 4 year period we had during Bailey or Neild years.

Nth:
2023 - 3 wins
2022 - 2 wins
2021 -4 wins
2020 - 3 wins*(out of 17 games)

Melbourne's three year bad patch of 2012,2013 and 2014 (where signs of recovery were obvious)  yielded 4, 2 and 4 wins.  2011 had 8 wins. 2015 had 7 wins. We won 5 games in 2008 and 2009.

They've had 4 very bad years in a row. If they have another bad year (as I stated in my post) without showing obvious signs of improvement they need help. I stand by that.

 

It’s too late now 

Tassie will have first crack at all the Young Talent 

North should have gone to The Gold Coast, but James Brayshaw said “no, i will save them..”

I have zero sympathy for this club

Port will be angry from the Demons loss and have 4 tall fwds that will destroy the bombers

They look to me a little like GWS early days. They’ve picked the best kids available over 3-4 drafts - but now have lots of mids and no structure to support it. It’s a risk, especially watching McKercher running around knowing he’ll be the first target for Tassie.

I've been thinking the same. FWIW I think they will improve this season. Their VFL team took a big leap last year and are undefeated this year (2/2).

Anyone listening to Dermie, Lynch and Dwayne Russell commentating the Brissy v North game? It's like listening to three old numpties chewing the fat by the fence in the local leagues. It has its charm, but probably is a little below the standard of seriousness required for national television.

Anyone watching the game able to shed light on the significance of the Lachie Neale and Zac Bailey injury as listed on the app? At work so haven't been able to watch.

Think the Neale one is more precautionary.

The Kangas are desperately short of some hard nose vets.

Take away the dribble talk and listen to Derm when he explains a play and what they should have done etc he is generally spot on with his comments.

I just switched over to tonight's game. Conversation went;

"Who's playing?"

"Ah, Port and Essendon."

"Is that that BT guy commentating again?"

"Hmm, yeah."

"Don't they have anyone else?"

Have you seen the standard of seriousness of Australia's national television lately?

Sometimes I think the networks are being run by a secret cabal of Netflix agents.

Still doesn't change the fact that his football knowledge is1st class maybe people could and learn something instead of just dismissing him because they think he's a [censored].

I don’t disagree, but draft picks are not the only way to rise up a ladder. They have good kids, but they don’t have leadership or bigger bodies. We went and got Vince and Lewis etc and those guys really helped to protect the younger players. We also had the likes of Jones. 

Whatever picks they get they should be forced to trade for ready made mature bodies. They lost McKay who granted is a potato, and Goldstein, who is one day away from death, but those guys were big mature bodies. They need more of that, and some leadership.

They were trying to talk up nth. I suppose they have to find something positive, but at times it was a bit patronising

[censored], there was a jumbo jet between the ball and the players. Review please 

It was about as close as the one Marchbank claimed to have touched against us last year.

A hard nosed vet would euthanise them.

    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.
