  1. Are the Demons capable of coming out and displaying some shinboner spirit?
  2. Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season. What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage. With so much at stake there will be no excuses for another lacklustre performance of the sort displayed by the Demons in the first three quarte

  4. We have to confine it to 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 ... (sorry)
  5. THE RED AND BLUE CENTRE by George on The Outer While some may not be pleased with Melbourne “selling” games to play in the NT it has to be clear that after this round the MFC heart beats strongly in the middle of Australia at Alice Springs. Before the game, a match of third and fourth teams on the ladder would have been thought to be a close, hard fought contest. It never was, as Melbourne set about re-writing the record books with a 91 point win over last years Grand Finalist.

  7. Here we go. If we had of set a bench mark for our last 4 weeks I think 75 goals, 14 quarters won in a row and 3rd on the ladder would have been about the best we could hope for. To those who say we played easy teams, tell that to Hawthorn and Geelong last week. These next 3 games are vitally important, and I for one have a good feeling. Dees by 35 points, McDonald BOG (hedging my bets a little bit there is two of them 😈)
  8. HEART OF THE NATION by Whispering Jack It feels as if I’m some form of rarefied atmosphere when previewing the AFL Match of the Round between third-placed Melbourne and fourth-placed Adelaide because it’s been a long time since the Demons have been involved in a game involving two teams in the top four this deep into a season. And ever since Adelaide skipper Taylor “Tex” Walker busted a gasket over Jake Lever’s decision to leave town and go back home to family, friends and the Melbourne Football Club, this game in the heart of the nation has been one of the made in heaven matc

  10. It was a real dog of a night in Darwin with Jayden Hunt’s booming goal to end the third quarter one of the only highlights. But will Hunty be in Alice Springs this time?

  11. Despite a slow start that saw it lead by a solitary point at quarter time even though it had first use of a strong breeze at Casey Fields, Melbourne thrashed reigning premier Adelaide by 32 points to retain their unbeaten record in the 2018 AFLW competition. The AFL hierarchy had made clear its edict for higher scoring and the adoption of a a 5-6-5 structure and the Demons responded with four goals against the wind in the second quarter to well and truly stitch up the game. With the lead out to 20 points at the main break, the home side continued to control proceedings and coasted home in
  12. DARWIN DREAMING by George on the Outer TIO Stadium in Darwin, the location of Melbourne's match against Adelaide on Saturday, was an absolute picture. With the sun setting over the bay behind the grandstand and the temperature in the low 20’s the conditions were perfect for football. Don’t let anyone perpetuate the myth about humid conditions: they simply weren't there and there will be no effects from this trip. But in the Land of The Dreaming, for the Demons to have any pretensions about beating league leaders Adelaide, it was truly too much of a stretch to expect anything other

  14. There was a time when I had some issues about giving up home games for the ? but these days, our record at the G isn't all that flash. We've only beaten Carlton (twice) and Collingwood there and have had costly stumbles against others who were outside the top 8. On the other hand, we're unbeaten at interstate venues and have done well away from home losing only to Geelong at Etihad when Max and Tim Smith both went down with injury and we ran out of gas. I don't have high expectations tonight but getting the points would probably cement us in the finals race, albeit with lots of work
  15. ON THE ROAD AGAIN by Whispering Jack I like the fact that Melbourne is still standing four months into a season that has been so badly interrupted by injuries, illness, suspensions and some of the disappointing early losses that occurred at least partly as a result of the disruption that these things brought with them. The Demons are still standing particularly because in recent weeks they have found ways to win close games that tested their nerve and their depth which is one of the ingredients needed for them to become a great side. I'm not suggesting the club is anywhere near such

  17. Off to TIO Stadium, Darwin to play Adelaide. Does anyone know if we've played them there before for premiership points? The last time these teams met was a mere two months ago just after Jesse Hogan's illness was diagnosed but not yet divulged publicly. We were also without any tall ruckman but we beat them anyway by dominating the midfield. This time around, it's the opposite - our entire centre line who were so instrumental in the win will be missing. ADELAIDE B: Jake Kelly, Daniel Talia, Luke Brown HB: Rory Laird, Kyle Hartigan, David Mackay C: Rory Sloane,
  18. I'm calling it now - season over. We can't withstand pressure. And we need another key forward.
  19. ANOTHER WHAT IF? by George on the Outer Sunday's loss against Adelaide at the MCG has put an end to the Demons' finals aspirations for 2016. It was a game that could have been won, but for a few critical phases and individual failings during the course of the match. What if Dom Tyson had not spilled a simple chest mark from Jack Watts 30 metres out of goal? What if Nathan Jones had looked before he hand passed blindly to an Adelaide player, missing the Melbourne team-mate clear only meters out from goal? What if the team had come out with even half the endeavor shown in the second

  21. Looking at the ladder, it's clear that this is a last chance saloon event for the Melbourne Football Club. For weeks, we've been meandering just outside the top but today, we need to pull a rabbit out of a hat just in order to stay in touch.
  22. STONE THE ... by The Oracle The Demons are coming off their biggest loss for the season and a bye only to run into the undoubted form team of the competition, the Adelaide Crows who have won their last five games on end. They are in supreme form and are a credit to their new coach Don Pyke who took over a club that tragically lost its coach around twelve months and then lost their champion player to another club at the start of the season. Since the Crows lost their Friday night home game against the Cats some 6 weeks ago, they demolished the Suns (75 points), beat the Giants (22 po
