  1. A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when forwards could not muster a goal at the pointy end of the game and a loss resulted. Once again
  2. SO YOU THINK THIS NEVER HAPPENED by Whispering Jack Those of you who have spent the last four or five days moping around wondering what might have been obviously have no imagination. Let me take you back to what you really did miss on Saturday. Things were looking desperate for Melbourne when Eagle Josh Kennedy kicked his third goal for the game and second for the term, just two and a half minutes after the start of the second quarter. The score stood at West Coast 6.8.44 to Melbourne, a mere 0.3.3. However, it was just a minute or so later that a strange phenomenon occurred. T
  3. A guaranteed finals berth was on offer - a chance to stamp some authority on the season and to not be the Melbourne of old. It was all there in the final match of the home and away season against Collingwood. The team came out killers. Not the ones that are ruthless and single minded, but season killers. Supporter killers. Killers of hope and aspiration. From the very first bounce it was obvious which was the team who was going to win the match, and it wasn’t Melbourne. The old “turn up and win” attitude was on full display as players simply trotted around and failed to get to the

  5. There's a sense of history about today - much like it was with the final round of 1987 when many of us travelled to Footscray and watched Melbourne's famous victory. Back then, we depended on Hawthorn to beat Geelong and Jason Dunstall's late goal saw us in into the finals. We went all the way to the preliminary final and the Jim Stynes 15 metre penalty that deprived us of a grand final appearance. This time, it's clear - we depend on no one - it's up to us. Let's do it!
  6. THE EQUATION by Whispering Jack The equation is really simple now. Win the game and you finish in seventh place and face a trip to either Adelaide or Sydney in the first week of the finals or lose and sweat it out until Sunday night when the result of the West Coast v Adelaide game is known. It's a situation of the club's own making, the result of a failure to win games against lesser credentialed teams and/or failure to apply the blowtorch when you're in full control in games like Port Adelaide or last week against the Brisbane Lions when the lead was by 32 points at the 5 minute ma

  9. MAIDEN VICTORY by Bewitched After a week of soul searching after a dramatic fade out in the lightning, thunder and rain at Casey in the AFLW's opening round, the women of Melbourne had a lot to be concerned about at half time at Ikon Park last night. They were down by 19 points and being totally outplayed after recording just one goal in their past four quarters of football and staring into oblivion in a seven game competition that allows only two teams to advance to the grand final. Moana Hope, the much vaunted Magpie strong lady had wreaked havoc in the early going, setting up her

  11. COMING SOON by Whispering Jack I have lost count of the number of times the old adage about the need to ignore pre season form has been proven to be correct and this year's AFL NAB Challenge is yet another case in point. Fremantle, Melbourne and Collingwood were the only undefeated teams in that series but the former has yet to record a win in the opening three rounds of AFL competition while the other two have managed only one win each and in both cases, they fell in by a solitary point. This week those other two front runners and old time traditional Victorian rivals meet in
  12. All of a sudden the Demons are blessed with a bounty of riches! Despite the heartache of a last gasp loss to North last week, they have bounced back in an emphatic fashion to completely obliterate Collingwood, and send them spiralling toward the bottom of the ladder. Much rested upon this match for the Demons; another loss would have put them in a similar position to the Pies, with both sides having just scraped over the line for their solitary win to date. But that was not to be and a first quarter blitz of six goals to one solitary major from Collingwood, almost

  15. EBBS AND FLOWS by Whispering Jack For a tiny bit over three quarters it was a game of ebbs and flows with Melbourne holding the ascendancy for the most part after dominating the opening stanza with four goals to one. It should have been more but Jack Viney and Dom Tyson missed easy shots late in the term after Jesse Hogan nailed his second goal for the game after just 23 minutes. That was the sort of thing that we've seen before this season with the game against the Crows at the Adelaide Oval a case in point so it came as no surprise that Collingwood was able to hit the front at the midpoint

  17. One of the big questions for today is whether people will bother to turn up for the game given that it's a clash between two out of form (at least I think that's a description of how Melbourne is playing at the moment) and out of luck teams occupying 11th and 15th spots on the ladder. The early morning weather out there looks foreboding - it's cold and bleak although the forecast says "rain clearing, wind easing" and it's true that Collingwood fans stick fat so you can still expect them to turn up in numbers for their home game on a ground they occupy and consider their own. But how many of ou
  18. COLD AS ICE by JVM Two teams whose recent records have been disappointing meet on Saturday afternoon at the MCG. The Magpies are on a five game losing streak, their last win coming against the GWS Giants in the week after Queens Birthday. That was the day that Mummy, Phil Davis and Joel Patfull all got injured and the Giants fell apart conceding eight final quarter goals in what became a 42 point defeat. A week earlier, it also took a resounding final term for the Magpies to prevail over their old rivals, the Demons. For its part, Melbourne has also been disappointing with two wins (Geelong an

  20. They went down by 25 points after a goalless final quarter. The Queens Birthday game promised a lot - especially the beginning of Max Gawn's ruck dominance but two months down the track, we simply can't score goals any more.

  21. THE LEAN AND HUNGRY LOOK by The Oracle "Let me have men about me that are fat, Sleek-headed men and such as sleep a-nights. Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look, He thinks too much; such men are dangerous." William Sheakespeare - Julius Caesar: Act 1, scene 2, 190–195 It was a strange game of football at Etihad Stadium. While it ebbed and flowed as all good games do, the ascendency was held, surprisingly, by the team that finished off 2011 like a ship without a rudder. Not the one that came into last year's grand final as the warm favourite. At half time, when the Magpies had just managed t
