  1. I’ve watched the replay 3 times and still can’t comprehend how we were awarded frees, or at least not penalized for many blatant errors, despite the howls of abuse throughout the game from an overwhelmingly anti Melbourne crowd. The non payment of a free kick against O.Mac ,when he took on the tackler by dropping his head into an oncoming chest, was just one of many mind boggling decisions surprisingly in our favour. In my conspiracy theory, the AFL contrived a feel good story ending

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    Wow, I’m glad there are mods and rules in place to control such personal vindictiveness

    For all those who are outraged by my personal opinion, I hereby resign from this thread , and thank you for revealing the error of my ways, particularly drysdale demon who’s outed me as a closet Collingwood supporter

    As always , it’s not the number that are paid but where and under what circumstances they’re given

    Yep, and that’s why I’ve submitted my 3 word analyses every week for 5 years🙄

    Was the win against West Coast rigged?

    My point exactly.. and that’s what’s mind boggling considering what’s preceded it

    Which part do you deem as nonsense?

    Have you woken up in a bad mood? Pretty stupid response by you
  10. Jones - willed the win Jetta - some incredible plays Frost - steady and important Hibberd - desperation was vital O. McDonald - seemingly no errors Fritsch - versatile and calm Melksham - was always dangerous Hannan - perfect opportunist’s game T.McDonald - great both ends Weideman - career best game Harmes - wonderful all game Kent - better than Garlett Brayshaw - wonderful in close VandenBerg - was important early Neal-Bullen - great grunt work Gawn - was our catalyst Lewis - slow but professional Oliver - was supreme throughout Petracca - true team game Salem - disposal was precise Spargo - out of depth Tyson - regularly slowed momentum

    The Ox reaction to yesterday's win!

    I was fortunate enough to be seated next to the late Robbie Flower at the MCG about 10 years ago and was similarly astonished to see the ‘great one’ going off his head as vehemently as me😳

    Gerard Whately is a Moron

    Yes, just heard King waxing lyrical about us as only he can

    Demonland Player of the Year - Round 22

    6 - Gawn ( gave everyone in his vicinity an armchair ride ) 5 - Harmes ( strong , tough , talented and important) 4 - Brayshaw ( willed himself regularly into the action and is a vital part of our impressive midfield ) 3 - Oliver ( a genius ) 2 - Melksham ( an important ingredient whom we’ve sorely missed ) 1 - Salem ( great application and disposal )

    If we beat Meth Coast I will ...

    Swallow my pride and overlook his wastefulness during the year by describing Tyson’s game as: prolific, and valuable

    Umpiring v West Coast in Perth

    111-3 Gus’s uncle Razor Ray feels sympathy for us 20 minutes into the last quarter and begrudgingly awards us 3 consecutive frees in the back line
  16. Jones - often diabolical disposal Jetta - brave but ineffective Frost - probably broke even O.McDonald - slow but useful Salem - suspect when pressured Pedersen - had little influence T. McDonald - was disappointing again Hogan - same as Tom Garlett - seemingly didn’t care Petracca - too easily sidetracked Oliver - met his match Spargo - played schoolboy football Tyson - prolific , rarely hurt Brayshaw - continued to excel Fritsch - hit a wall Gawn - dominated , didn’t hurt Harmes - tough and tried Hunt . just a shadow Kennedy - Harris - little to enthuse Lewis - slowness often exposed Neal - Bullen - no obvious role VanDenBerg - took his chances

    GAMEDAY - Round 21

    Forget Gawn , Oliver , Hogan, and Tom. Our most important player today is Frost.. if he holds Franklin to less than 3, we win
  18. Jones - an outstanding game Hogan - prolific and valuable Harmes - continued great form Garlett - enjoyed the freedom Oliver - best afield again Petracca - regularly outmanoeuvred opponents Neal- Bullen - hard ball gets Spargo - did just enough Brayshaw - dynamic and creative Salem - safe and steady T.McDonald - was surprisingly limited Fritsch - continues to impress VanDenBerg - finding his feet Frost - confident and convincing Gawn - not his best Jetta - impressive when required Kennedy - Harris - a borderline pass Lewis - a standard game O.McDonald - was rarely required Smith - history repeats itself Tyson - impressive ,rarely wasteful Vince - was never assured
  19. Jones - better on ball T.McDonald - had a presence Melksham - a limited impact Fritsch - versatile and smart Lewis - steady all game Garlett - just some cameos Kennedy-Harris - justified his place Neal-Bullen - run and pressure Hogan - very little involvement Harmes - wonderful tagging game Petracca - continued improved involvement Tyson - had a go Brayshaw - becoming a gun Frost - confident and important Gawn - set the tone Jetta - was rarely sighted O.McDonald - fortunately rarely required Oliver - a class above Salem - important but iffy Smith - some important touches Spargo - tried but overwhelmed Vince - just a game

    Demonland Player of the Year - Round 19

    6 - Oliver ( possibly his best game for the club ) 5 - Gawn ( dominated the centre ) 4 - Harmes ( continued his impressive tagging role ) 3 - Petracca ( used the ball beautifully and often ) 2 - Brayshaw ( some important possessions and impressive gut running) 1 - T. McDonald ( was always a presence )

    GAMEDAY - Round 19

    Seriously, if all the talk pre season and during season about ‘hurting’ after last year’s debacles and last week’s heartbreaking loss, doesn’t amount to a life or death performance tonight, nothing EVER will

    GAMEDAY - Round 19

    Stupid idea to move Hogan to defense this late into the season.. he wouldn’t have a clue about manning up nor being accountable.
  23. It’s the leggy blonde bit that’s surprising
  24. 3AW Rumour File No names mentioned but a report this morning that a certain midfielder who left training early with a quad strain was sighted not long later at the new Mission Impossible movie with a leggy blonde😳
  25. Jones - becoming a liability Jetta - little to commend O.McDonald - was comprehensively destroyed Smith - has limited skills Lewis - slow but important Vince - a momentum killer Frost - some impressive touches Fritsch - needed more urgency Gawn - had limited impact Oliver - prolific but tired Brayshaw - sacrificed to tag Harmes - wonderful tagging game Hogan - gave us little T. McDonald - always looked dangerous Spargo - disappeared second half Garlett - disappeared whole game Neal Bullen - just lacks class Kennedy Harris - out of depth Melksham - was hardly sighted Petracca - was almost terrific Tyson - never play again Salem - just a game
