  1. Your votes for tonight’s game please 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
  2. The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team discipline from which he developed closely knit teams that cut no corners to be the fastest, fittes
  3. If anyone’s complacent about Melbourne’s game against the Swans next week then think again. They gave us a flogging in Round 22 last year so we shouldn’t take them lightly MELBOURNE B Michael Hibberd Sam Frost Jake Lever HB Nathan Jones Marty Hore Christian Salem C Kyle Dunkley Jack Viney Billy Stretch HF Corey Wagner Bayley Fritsch James Harmes F Jordan Lewis Jake Melksham Christian Petracca FOLL Max Gawn Angus Brayshaw Clayton Oliver I/C Kade ChandlerJay Kennedy Harris Alex Neal-Bullen Charlie Spargo EMG Jayden Hunt Declan Keilty Jay Lockhart Braydon Preuss IN K
  4. Looking forward to your votes on a 6,5,4,3,2,1 basis please.
  5. They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year. We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes! And whilst there’s been a lot of soul searching and declarations of honesty and openness, the fact of the matter is
  6. A FOOTBALL (SWIMMING) LESSON by George on The Outer A few weeks ago Melbourne played Hawthorn in the wet. It took the players and coaches a full quarter of that game to get the message out that you cannot play the same way in those conditions as you do in the dry. Trying to hand pass and finesse doesn’t work. Fast forward three weeks and surely the message would have been simple, plain and unambiguous. Especially as it has rained there for the past week and a bit with no prospect of even a clearing of the clouds on the day. Yet once again the players tried to play like it was

  8. Not for the first time this season, the team is facing a crossroads game against a side that it has struggled against in the past but a win would move it up in everyone's estimation as well as ladder position. This is a test that we need to pass. It's away from home and the weather is looking inhospitable. I was reminded yesterday by a Bulldogs fan that his team was in a similar place last year when it went up north and had to play the Swans on a rain drenched SCG. They won and the game was a turning point for them. With the advantage of added self-belief knowing they were capable o
  9. THE BASEMENT by The Oracle The AFL has been rather kind to Melbourne when it's come to fixturing games against Sydney over the past five years when the Swans have been powerhouses of the competition and the Demons have been inhabiting its basement. It seems that the Demons aren't really welcome in the Harbour City because the last time these two sides met each other in Sydney was their Round 8 encounter at the SCG in 2012. The result of that game was a disaster for the Dees with the only memorable aspect being a speccie from Jeremy Howe that earned him the AFL Mark of

  11. ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT? by The Oracle That was miserable. Melbourne waved the white flag in the first quarter and, apart from a handfull of triers, the rabble that travelled to Sydney humiliated the oldest football club on the planet with a heartless, soulless effort. One has to wonder what most of them were doing out there because it didn't resemble the game being played by the opposition. If they keep playing like that, the supporters will stop coming and they'll have to ask the doorkeeper the question from the title of this short article. Short, because there really is nothing worthwhil

  13. There's a game on in Sydney today at 4.40pm and I thought I'd get in early because all week I've had this gut feeling that the Demons would record their first win of the season. I based that on the fact that the club's injury woes seem to be diminishing to reasonable levels whilst the Swans, without Goodes, Mumford and Rohan and with a few others out of form, are in a spot of bother. They're ripe for the picking even if the game is on their home patch and a place where Melbourne hasn't played for several years. I also believe that the tight confines might suit us a little better while we're co
  14. TWILIGHT ZONE by Whispering Jack Last night an intrepid group of people associated with the legal profession met for the annual Devil’s Advocates dinner mc’d by former MFC board member Bev O’Connor and hosted by prominent Melbourne family lawyer, Ralph Glezer. You have to be intrepid if you’re a Melbourne fan because, as Chris Connolly told the audience, there is a great deal being thrown at us from the cheap seats in these early days of the club’s new coaching regime. It was a theme of the night that rather than being in the deep trouble as painted by some of the pundits, the Demons are indee
