  1. The Demons are making it very hard for anyone to tip them to win with any confidence these days. Key players are falling over injured, getting themselves reported and horror of horrors being photographed at music festivals puffing away at cigarettes. On the field, they continually miss easy shots at goal while their opponents never miss their targets. Meanwhile, Fremantle, their opponent this week in the big game at the G, just shrugged off the easy beat tag by giving last year's premiers a right royal touch up in Perth. Before the game against the Bulldogs, Ross Lyon re-assessed his posi

  3. RAINING GOALS by Bewitched It's no secret that the Women of Melbourne don't like rain. They opened the season scoring four consecutive points in muggy wet conditions before the rain got really heavy and thunder and lightning forced their game at Casey Fields to be temporarily abandoned just before half time. After a short break, they lost their ascendency and their first ever game to the Brisbane Lions. A couple of weeks ago, they did even worse on a wet track in Sydney despite having more than double the inside 50 count. You don't normally win games when you kick one goal from 12 scoring

  6. DARWIN DREAMING by George on the Outer It was a long time since the Demons had won a game in the Northern Territory. That was in 2011, the same year they had last beaten Fremantle. And they had never recorded a win against a Ross Lyon coached team. All of those records were removed in a single night with an emphatic 32 point victory against the Dockers at TIO stadium in Darwin. The Demons adapted early to the steamy conditions breaking the game open from the start to lead by four goals at quarter time. They then opened the gap to seven goals by the long break and the game was virtual

  8. The most damning statistic underlining Melbourne's recent history in games against Fremantle is the last six scores against them ~ 40, 40, 38, 34, 50, 54. We bolstered the average considerably in our two encounters last year but it still sits at a shade under 43 points a game or a goal less than the Demons' total in the second quarter against Adelaide last week. It goes without saying that we'll have to be well above average if we're going to win tonight.
  9. TOP END TRAVELS by William from West Perth Before the current season began, it would have been unimaginable for anyone to believe that Melbourne would have double the number of wins in the bag and a much stronger percentage than Fremantle by this mark, two thirds of the way through the year. After all, the Dockers finished last season's home and away fixture at the top of the AFL premiership ladder and demolished the Demons at both meetings in 2015. A week before the regular season ended, the teams met at Subiaco and Freo doubled Melbourne's score. I remember it well - it was an emb

  12. BACK TO EARTH by The Oracle In the end it was a rout. The Dockers kicked more goals in the final quarter than the Demons kicked for the whole match and indeed in any of their four previous encounters. Fremantle won 18.10.118 to 6.14.50 and that score line really addresses the scoring efficiency of the ladder leaders who burst away with a four goal to nil lead by the eleven minute mark of the match. They maintained that position as the status quo until late in the third quarter and then ran away with the game with those seven unanswered final term goals. As predicted, they held the advantage i

  14. GASP by The Oracle Whilst it's true that Richmond was in red hot form coming off a 79-point shellacking of Brisbane a week earlier, this week's opponent is absolutely white hot having demolished all before it this season including the Swans last week after a withering opening half. Before that, Ross Lyon's charges had beaten Port Adelaide in the season opener, Geelong at Simonds Stadium and crushed the Eagles in the local derby. That's a pretty comprehensive record against solid opposition in three of last year's finalists. Melbourne's task this week looks even more daunting when one looks at

  16. The Demons' second "home" game in Darwin was something of a disaster. The team was strangled by the Dockers defensive power and struggled to score all night.

  17. NATURAL SELECTION by The Oracle Melbourne's third venture for the year into the Northern Territory has again ended in pain. All three matches, starting with a NAB Challenge game against Geelong in Alice Springs on 28 February and finishing with the Round 16 fixture against Fremantle in Darwin were defeats. The first saw an injury to key forward hopeful Jesse Hogan that severely curtailed the start of what is hoped to be a stellar career, the second (against Port Adelaide) showed hope of brighter things to come and the third was a major reality check that demonstrated how far the club must go

  19. I just realised there's a game on tonight ... and with Hawthorn's demise last night, the Dockers have even more incentive (if any was needed) to not only win but to win well. A win of the magnitude of the 15 goal bashing they inflicted on us a little over 12 months ago (of which we're constantly reminded by the idiot in the airport parking radio ad on SEN) would put the Dockers in with a chance to grab a top two spot sooner or later in the season. For our part, I'm hoping that we can return to the intensity displayed the last time we visited the Northern Territory when we played Port Adelaide
  20. SITTIN' ON THE DOCK OF A DARWIN BAY by The Oracle Saturday night was once reserved as the one night of the week when you would go out to the movies but these days the cinema houses have competition. For example, the opportunity presents itself this week for a night of excitement in front of the television set watching a blockbuster game between the Paul Roos coached Demons and Ross Lyons' Purple Haze played at the country's Top End in front of an estimated crowd of hopefully more than seven thousand. That would be about 20% of the number that turned out to watch last Sunday's game between Carl

  22. They were never going to influence the final outcome of the game because Fremantle were simply far too good. But the three sight-impaired gentlemen in the spiffy bright green and grey gear certainly welcomed our interstate visitors with a red carpet reception and rained free kick after free kick upon them early in the game so that they got the start they wanted. At one stage the Dockers had 5 free kicks to none and 15 inside 50s before the Demons went forward. It was all so Schmitt House. The Dees were appalling of course and by the time they were ready to play, they were a trifle shell-shock
  23. Since the game is starting in under two hours, probably time to start a game day thread.
