Melbourne Demons

The Melbourne Football Club boasts a legacy as rich as any sporting organisation on the planet. Founded in May 1859, it is the world’s oldest professional football club of any variety.

MFC’s recent history is far less auspicious. Since the infamous sacking of six-time premiership coach Norm Smith in 1965, the once-mighty Demons have claimed the wooden spoon seven times and played in only two grand finals. With the Western Bulldogs’ fairytale win in 2016, Melbourne now hold the longest active streak without a premiership.

Things were looking up when Simon Goodwin steered a young, talented team to the preliminary finals in 2018, but it all fell apart the following year as the Dees plummeted to 17th on the ladder.

The question is: where do Melbourne sit in the race for the 2021 AFL Premiership title? Let’s find out.

Demons players to watch in 2021

Christian Petracca AFL bettingChristian Petracca
Born: 4/1/1996
Games: 102
Goals: 94
Position: Midfielder

Prior to the 2020 season, we talked about Christian Petracca as a talented but frustrating half-forward who might be running out of chances. A year on, he is one of the league’s most damaging midfielders and a big reason why Melbourne look poised to climb the ladder in 2021.

Steven May AFL bettingSteven May
Born: 10/1/1992
Games: 148
Goals: 23
Position: Defender

Steven May was another who needed to deliver the goods in 2020, and he duly obliged. The former Gold Coast star was a rock at the back for the Dees, and his defensive partnership with Jake Lever is shaping up to be one of the best in the competition.

Luke Jackson - Melbourne DemonsLuke Jackson
Born: 29/9/2001
Games: 6
Goals: 3
Position: Ruck/forward

No.3 draft pick Luke Jackson was billed as one of the players to watch in 2020, but he only managed six games in his maiden season. The former basketballer’s athleticism and sporting nous were there for all to see, however, and he will only improve with more opportunities this year.
