Melbourne can make this its best start to a season in 65 years when it battles a Carlton side still dreaming of the finals this afternoon.
The Demons (8-0, 145.1%) have started a season 9-0 just twice in their history – 1955 and 1956. On both occasions, they went on to win the premiership.
The Blues (3-5, 95.2%) were disappointing last week when they allowed the Western Bulldogs to come back and win from 27 points late in the third quarter, but have at least continued to be competitive against top eight sides.
