  1. Thought I’d give a little update on Dec for anyone interested This season he is playing at our home town of Moe as a development coach/player Back into his true position as a key defender and has killed it in the first 2 games On Saturday they played Maffra in Maffra and won 69-26. Moe haven’t beat Maffra away in over a decade He was dominating so much they sent a defensive forward on him but it didn’t work, he took a huge number of defensive and intercept marks and was a big reason Maffra only kicked 3 goals for the game Moe picked up a few good players this ye

  2. What an amazing effort from an an amazing servant of the club. This guy bleeds red and blue. He carried the team on his shoulders for so many years during some dark times. As loyal as the come. Congratulations Nathan Jones. ❤️💙😈

  3. So was watching the Knicks play the Grizzlies this morning on the NBA app and were getting soundly beaten so I took to Demonland and saw that today's match was on. So at half time in the NBA, I turned it off and took the drive from the Golden Mile in Frankston to a cold, wet and windy Casey to watch a winning team. Thankfully we got there in the end, despite a few concerns along the way with certain elements (skill errors were a killer!). But here is my break down of what I thought of our players. 12. Toby Bedford: Showed a bit today, especially in the 2nd half and was a factor in us

  7. Is anyone else being driven mad by the constant barrage of deafening music being played at the footy? It is played right up until the bounce starting each quarter and is so loud, you can't even hear the person next to you speak. People are screaming at each other and it is destroying the experience for me. If I want to go to a concert I will go to one, but this is footy, so at least turn it off 5 minutes before the bounce, so we can soak in the atmosphere of the game. It is a disgrace!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. I think Jackson suffers from the fact that he looks so much less like a young ruck/forward than most young ruck/forwards do. He moves so smoothly and with so much coordination that he gets judged like he's a 25 year old. He actually looks too good for his age so people can get fooled into judging his forward play like he's a mature player like Tom McDonald. But he's 19. He's a ruck forward. What he's doing is remarkable. He was beating Ben McEvoy, a 31 year old premiership ruckman comfortably in the ruck and then spreading like a midfielder. He's beaten or halved against every mature AF

  11. Jay Clark reporting that Oliver has re-signed. No idea of the details but this is huge news for us and a big statement to the team! I was a bit worried he was going to get offered a truck load and move on.

  12. Arriving at 11.05 in pouring rain at Casey Fields is never a great start but that is exactly what Casey got off to in the first quarter. The rain stopped a few minutes before the game started and it was dry for the duration but the wind howled and it was slippery. The ground was in great condition and the wind blew across to the outer side and favoured the northern end. That's where I headed. It's nice to win any match but it was the young kids and one old kid I wanted to see and I didn't have to wait long. BBB was dominant early holding two contested chest marks and kicking one goal

  13. I reckon the coaches will be absolutely loving what Spargo brings to the forward line. I've never seen a Dees team put on the forward pressure that this one does and Spargs is a huge part of that.

  15. I am almost 34 years old. I've gone week in, week out for 27 or 28 of those years. This might sound a bit ridiculous, but I think that was the best win I've ever seen. Not only were we 5-0 going into it, it was a massive game, against a side that has won 3 flags in 4 years, and they were almost at full strength (minus Prestia), and we stood up. So very un-Melbourne like in my life time. I went to Perth for the prelim in 2018 and midway through the first quarter it felt very reminiscent. Their pressure was excellent and they were all over us. We really took a long time to get going, but ou

  17. Ventured down to Casey along with a few others on here to observe a few players. Weather was pretty rainy when I got there for 1st quarter. Not too many spectators, I estimate around 400 max. Among them were Mark and Nicole Bradtke (Mark is huge), Choco Williams, Alan Richardson, Sean Smith. First observation I noticed was Ben Brown is BIG. Not overly solid, just very tall, towers above Majak and Weed. He had his left knee strapped. This bloke knows how and where to lead, he presents himself well and is a target. Nice mark and goal in first quarter, then a juggling one handed ma

  19. Have been pleading with demon supporters for couple of years to stick fat with this kid. What you're watching now is exactly what he was showing at TAC level and why he was highly rated by our recruiting and coaching staff. Imo he is by far our best tackler in the team, and he sets the tone with his insane pressure and manic attack. Don't think I've seen anyone an opponent slip his tackles as of yet this year. While Kozzie might be getting all the Hollywood attention and rightly so, it's Spargo who the coaches would be just as wrapt with his defensive efforts and form. Worked

  21. Without getting too political, it’s their disingenuous way of masquerading as ‘working class’ while being the biggest, hypocritical bootlickers of all.🥾👅 News Ltd. has always talked out both sides of its mouth, and has always been about lining their pockets from the working and middle class readers they hold in contempt. They spent months ginning up campaigns on the Apex gang, Sudanese crime and giving oxygen to some of the biggest dog whistlers in the Australian commentariat, and then put out articles proclaiming their shock and horror when a footballer has been racially abused.

  28. Just watched the replay for a second tine.😀 I 'm sorry as much as I love Spargo's work, in the interests of fairness we need to give some love to the other like player in Nibbler. Last year he was much maligned and many wondered if he was in our best 22 ( Thanks Richie benaud) but after Tmac, he has been our most improved player. Used to be one of the worst offenders in missing set shots on goal but kicked a ripper from the boundary. He doesnt get much recognition but his work rate in running and tackling is probably even better than Sparticus and the way he celebrates th

  30. This Guy: "They're actually looking really good, and some of the areas they excel are areas we aren't so strong at. Gawn will dominate against us, especially if we only play Nankervis. He will need additional support and even then, Gawn is likely to be the best big man on the ground. So they excel in our ruck weakness. Also without Prestia, their midfield has the potential to smash us inside. Petracca, Oliver, Viney, Jones will be very formidable inside and doing the grunt work. We probably have them on the spread if it gets out, but there's every chance they dominate the clearances s

  31. Me either, I think she is the best football journalist by the length of the Nullabor Plain and has been for decades. The hatred stems from lingering misogynist tendencies by the consuming public and because she doesn't pull any punches, it tends to ruffle some fragile egos. I've heard her speak several times at private functions and I have all the time in the world for her, highly intelligent, sharp-witted and not afraid to call anything out.

  32. Can’t think of a game outside of a final I have enjoyed winning more, that was just awesome. Pressure was unbelievable. Gut running unbelievable. Salem is a genuine Rolls Royce. Defence was just awesome. So glad we got it done for Chunk, he deserves to be carried off as a winner, a true Melbourne legend

  34. Knowing Glen personally, I can say he’s worked very hard for the club and is a very passionate Melbourne man. He did a brilliant job stabilizing the club with Jackson and Roos years ago and also helped rebrand the club too. Some of his calls were outlandish, but you’ve got to aim big or you’ll never achieve anything (Tigers premiership and 100k membership as an example). My understanding is Glen will be spending more time with family in WA going forward. Also sounds as if instability is either being addressed or getting worse as a result of his departure. Time will tell, but the board

  35. Imagine if you said at half time in the match thread that you thought that the best setup was to have Tom McDonald in defence? Won us the game with that mark and goal. I might have to dust Plugger off again. That was by far the most tough opponent we've had. Definitely not the prettiest win but I'd argue the most satisfying one yet.

  37. So.... have we beaten anyone good yet? Huge game. We were bullied, and we bullied back. Salem, Trac, Oliver, Max, Langdon,, Lever, TMac, Hunt, fantastic. But so many contributors. ANB some really nice things, big goal. The best part? The Tigers looked rattled, broken, scared, angry. We did that to them. Believe.

So good to see the team do it for chunk and to hear him acknowledge the long suffering fans for sticking with this club. How good was it to watch Gawn sprinting through the centre as a midfielder taking handball receives. Ruckmen don't do that but our captain does. How good was it to watch Petracca reach a new level in the third. Complete beast mode. It reminded me of watching Carey turn a game through sheer will a
