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 2020 AFL Premiership title? Let’s find out.

Demons players to watch in 2020

Steven May AFL bettingSteven May
Born: 10/1/1992
Games: 131
Goals: 22
Position: Defender

Many in the footy industry saw May as the missing piece of the Melbourne puzzle when he made the switch from the Gold Coast last year, but he managed only eight games in a deeply disappointing debut campaign. Dees fans will expect a hell of a lot more in 2020.

Angus Brayshaw AFL bettingAngus Brayshaw
Born: 9/1/1996
Games: 80
Goals: 37
Position: Midfielder

After bolting to within a few votes of the 2018 Brownlow Medal, Brayshaw suffered a severe slump in 2019. The gutsy on-baller has overcome plenty of obstacles to get this far in his career, so he should bounce back this season.

Christian Petracca AFL bettingChristian Petracca
Born: 4/1/1996
Games: 85
Goals: 79
Position: Half-forward

Petracca might be the most talented player on Melbourne’s list, but he is yet to match his obvious ability with the consistency required of an AFL footballer. The former no.2 draft pick is running out of chances to prove his worth at the highest level.
