Biggest loss with more scoring shots
In windy conditions the Demons put in their most inaccurate performance ever against the Blues and the loss continued to destroy any hopes they would have of playing in September.
At the other end the Demons had no answers and when Stephen Smith limped off with a hamstring injury at the start of the second quarter their fate was sealed.
The loss gave Melbourne the worst record of any side at VFL Park.
Best were Coles, Wells and McKellar. Steven Smith (hamstring) was replaced by Johnston in the second quarter and Guy by Hurst in the last quarter.
