Round 17 Non MFC Games

Recommended Posts

Scott just verballed the umpire as he walked off the ground. You might as well talk to the cat. You'll get no joy talking to any umpire.

10 marks to Kyle Cheney. Great game. Been in the system 10 years for 81 games across 3 clubs - funny how some players can manage to eke out a career doing just enough to hang on by a fingernail.

I noticed that too. He had nothing to complain about but that’s pretty hard for a Scott.

Not entirely related to this thread but does anyone know if the Cats v Dees game next week will be on Free-to-air TV? Or will we non-FOXTEL people get stuck with Brisbane v Adelaide? 

Live on 7mate according to my Foxtel app.

He can't help himself. Perpetual whinger.

Hawkins looks like he is playing Melbourne. Dominating.

Has been in a purple patch of form of late. Bit of a worry for us in a fortnight.

Guthrie is such an average plodder. Loves playing against us though.

Scott obviously has a great influence over Hawkins  - he has become one of the games greatest whingers.  

Ablett has them both covered 'mono'...in his whole career I honestly think he believes not one free paid against him was there, nor anytime he's near the ball that he didn't deserve one.

...plus he's now become a real team player in his later years at Geelong and believes the same above applies to all his teammates.

Massive week next week and the week after. Play Geelong in a must win clash then Adelaide who Geelong have put into form.

Selwood should get a week for a deliberate trip on Milera and not play us next week.  But its Selwood so they wont even look at it.

Not looking past the Bulldogs but beating the Cats down at Geelong next week to move two games clear of them and make their path to  the finals very hard would be so, so sweet.

Scott, Dangerflog Ablett, Selwood.....  they are so easy to hate.

Geelongs bottom 10 are shthouse. Contain a few and smash them next week. 

It is time.

If We beat Dogs and go down to the cattery and knock em off we would have finished them off for the season.

FYI (Kardinia Park): I live 20km from this dump and refuse to attend our games there (every bloody year) on principal.

I have Platinum/Legends mship which gets me into all MCG and Etihad games.

But not K Park.

I go to all other Vic games and at least one interstate games each year. 

Our cheer squad get shafted - placed on a flank as seats behind the northern goal (non Cats cheer squad end) fetch a premium.

If you roll up and expect to get $25:GA you may be disappointed. Even though it won't be sold out they'll tell you that you need to pay $35 min. for a seat.

They treat opposition supporters with utter contempt.

Furthermore, night games can be dangerous for visiting supporters. Their supporters have spent all arvo in the pubs.

I urge all MFC suuporters to boycott this game.

Seriously why aren't geelong coming under more scrutiny?  They could possibly be out of the 8 by the weekend.  This is a team that got ablett back at the start of the year.  Yes they don't really have a ruckman but they have a pretty good midfield and forward line.  I would think if they miss finals its a massive fail. Although funny if they do miss. Ablett would feel like he is back at the gold coast

I urge all MFC supporters to attend this game, as it's a massively important game in our season.

And I think we can handle a few old ducks knitting scarves, even if they have been drinking all arvo.

Not that he'd be a big out - but Tex's hit on Tuohy should be 2 weeks and therefore misses our game?

He is lucky that he came back on, but had only eyes for the ball and still made high contact.

Haha. Reminded me of days at Vic park and an old Pies fan Mrs Johnson who would sit on the fence in the outer and try to hit us over the head with her umbrella as we put the banners up. After a couple of years we worked out that the girls would do that part of the ground (and she allowed them to put the banner up - not the guys) as long as she could put her Pie's tea towel over our banner.

At least 2 should be 3 eyes of the ball and elbow to the head. So what if Zach tuoy played out the game it was intentional high impact in my book it floored him.

Yes, but Tuohy coming back on means he passed a concussion test. So whilst it was high contact, its not considered as bad.

Tex is insufferable - so would prefer him to be out long enough for Adelaide to just miss finals. Means he can enjoy all the "success" Lever gave up.

Carlton by 27 tonight. 4 score reviews in which 2 will be incorrect. Charlie Curnow to dominate and kick 7. 

If you own a rent-a-crowd business, you’ve done well this week.

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The
