  1. ONE GAME AT A TIME by Whispering Jack The perceived wisdom for fans of our code of football is that when you approach the pointy end of the season, it's not proper to discuss anything other than your team’s next game. The unwritten rule is that you must take things one game at a time. I really would have liked to engage in speculation about what might happen beyond next Sunday and even dared to dream, as was suggested in a newspaper article earlier this week, of a rollicking finish to the season involving action deep into the month of September after a single important win that would

  3. The Demons were traveling along nicely when they played the Gold Coast Suns earlier this season. With so much at stake this time, they cannot afford to take the Suns lightly. These were the selected teams from Round 8 when Melbourne drew away in the last half to win by 69 points. THE TEAMS GOLD COAST SUNS B: Jarrod Harbrow, Rory Thompson, Steven May HB: Aaron Hall, Jack Leslie, Callum Ah Chee 😄 Jack Bowes, Jarryd Lyons, Lachie Weller HF: Nick Holman, Brayden Crossley, Charlie Ballard F: Jack Martin, Sam Day, Aaron Young Foll: Jarrod Witts, Touk Mille
  4. Somewhere out in the red heart of the country there a 22 men searching for the meaning of the term "season defining". I wish them well.
  5. WATTS PAYS HIS WAY by George on the Outer It was only 10 days ago that Jack Watts signed on with the Demons for another 3 years. They say that for many players a contract extension almost always ensures a subsequent drop off in form but not for our Jack. Against the Gold Coast Suns, he single-handedly won a game that was all but lost in the dying two minutes when he calmly slotted through a shot from a difficult angle to put the Demons in front and that was despite him being absolutely exhausted to get to the space and take the mark. Then a minute later, to take a match saving mark down t
  6. COLD, COLD, COLD by The Oracle I expect this week's game against the Gold Coast Suns to deliver final proof on the theory that the young Melbourne team is tiring badly as the season wears on. Earlier in the year, the Demons completely emasculated the Suns in the last half of their game at Metricon Stadium booting nine goals in the third term and seven in the last amassing a total of over 100 points in an outstanding performance albeit against an undermanned opponent. Melbourne's recent final quarter performances have been in stark contrast to that balmy evening on the Gold Coas

  8. On current form, this could well be our last chance for a win this season so here's hoping that we make the most of it.

  10. Will it be Nathan Jones again this year? Voting for the first round begins with the final siren. Votes on a 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 basis (best gets 6 and so on to sixth best which gets 1). We will select three sets of votes as the official Denonland votes for the round.
  11. TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUNS by George on the Outer The Demons finally erased a whole series of undesirable and unwanted records with a 26-point opening round eclipse of the Gold Coast Suns. It was ten years since an opening round win, two seasons since the team had scored over 100 points in a game, and most importantly, the team survived a number of comebacks from the Suns during the course of the afternoon - a rare occurrence in recent times. It was a fitting performance to pay respect to the great Robbie Flower, who has now been immortalized with the Robbie Flower Wing proudly inaugurated befo
  12. Melbourne finally put the score on the board 'It should be a bit of fun I think': Jack backs Dees' attack Jack Watts and Adam Treloar among the likes, Brendon Goddard and Ryan Griffen among the dislikes as Robbo runs rule over Round 1 Paul Roos rapt with Melbournes attacking style to sink Gold Coast Then there's this gem of a review from Supermercado on Demonblog - Reclaim Round 1

  14. First game of the 2015 season, MFC v GCS. Home game on a Saturday. Go figure. Likelihood of no Ablett in round one. Winnable? Yeah, I know we thought it was a lay down misere against the Saints this year. At least we are at home round one, and hopefully, we will roll out several stars of the future.
  15. I know what you're thinking. Melbourne only wins the opening game of a season once in a blue moon, a rare occurrence involving 13 full moons in a one calendar year. Well, the fact of the matter is that the last time a blue moon happened was in 2010 but we didn't win our first game of the season - we were flogged mercilessly by Hawthorn so let's forget this blue moon thing and concentrate on the other colour that represents our club. And tonight fellow Demon fans, we're going to experience a red moon, a lunar eclipse which will start at around 8:00pm. Which makes today, the perfect occasion to
  16. Gary Ablett's shoulder popped out of its socket early in the third quarter of the Gold Coast Suns v Collingwood game in Round 16 last year and with it went his team's prospects of a finals appearance. The Suns finished 12th, just a game out of the top eight with ten wins and a percentage of 93.7. Melbourne also struggled at the end of 2014 losing its last 10 games and finishing in 17th position on four wins, ahead only of St. Kilda on percentage. Fast forward six months to the pre season competition of 2015 and even without Ablett and a handful of other regulars, the Suns managed 1½ wins as ag
  17. UNDESERVED by The Oracle Melbourne could easily have plucked this game out of the fire in the end although a victory would have been something it didn't deserve. The game certainly wasn't one of the classics - there were lots of errors on both sides and it was the Suns who made the least. The game's adjudicators made a few as well - the first was the video review of the Demons' first goal and the last were some doozies from the field umpires that included a gifted goal to Garry Ablett when Melbourne was coming hard in the last quarter. If that was a free then McCaffer of Collingwood would have

  19. Lots of water under the bridge since our humiliation almost 12 months ago in the equivalent fixture at the MCG. The Suns came out playing with great intensity and pushed us aside with their midfield dominance which lasted throughout the 120 minutes. Their midfield led by Garry Ablett but consisting also of Bennell, Swallow, Prestia and O'Meara (147 touches between them, Ablett with 38) with Zac Smith heading the ruck simply put us away. Nathan Jones had a relatively quiet day and Gazza's influence was sublime. I was sitting almost at ground level when at one stage I saw him surrounded by Demon
