Look I must admit I really wondered about his inclusion several weeks ago but today I thought he was very very good, Could be a Josh Gibson type! 

Well done young man! Happy to admit an error of early judgement!^_^

I would kill for such discipline.  I would be wealthy.  I'd have a body like Usain Bolt (a white one).  And I wouldn't frighten my little children when I watch Melbourne.  Hats off to ya Rusty.

 

 

I'm also not getting any younger Pink and was also extremely nervous so recording it helped me turn down the tension a little lol. This was win or die for this club IMO today. Thankfully the former!

Some useless stats for anyone interested....

We had 18 players with under 100 games today. Pies had 12. They had 10 with 100 or more...we only had 4. Doing ok. Next trade i would be topping up with some solid more experienced players if they fit the mix and have serious talent.

"First quarter and a half was some of the worst footy I've seen us play and we were on track for a 3 figure thumping.

To our credit our effort improved and we showed good fight. Our skills around the ground and at goal hurt though (8 goals 11 to 10 goals 4 after quarter time) and we were too stagnant.

If Melbourne supporters are happy and pumping themselves up after that then they're kidding themselves and will never be anything other than a bottom 4 side. Had we turned up for 4 quarters it's a different game and probably a different result."

It's a river in Egypt.

I was at the game with a bunch of Collingwood supporters. What a fantastic feeling - nothing like beating the Pies.

I hope you had a long shower and Dee-scrub when you got home Jane. Those Collingwood supporters can carry filthy diseases.

If the Pies only have 1 or 2 wins and drop that game as well, Bucks being the first coach to go is actually a distinct possibility.

Eddie will hang on to him for as long as humanly possible.

To sack Buckley will be to admit to a blunder in forcing Malthouse out.

I don't think it was a blunder forcing Malthouse Out , Carltank supporters will back me up with that  ascertion!

Frost was good today but would be good if u could take a bloody mark consistently. 

It wasn't that long ago that one Max Gawn was in and out of the side, lacked confidence and had butter sticks for fingers.  Last year a switch finally flicked during the Geelong game and he's clunked them ever since.  

I sincerely believe that Frost's hands will get stickier, and his kicks will get straighter as his confidence improves.  There was already a notable improvement between the first half and the second half today.  He's got all the required attributes, he just hasn't been able to stitch it all together yet - purely due to confidence I think.

In Q2 a C'wood player was paid a mark (probably correctly) which I thought came to ground closer to their goal than the point at which he was paid the mark. He picked up the goal and the umpire called play on as he ran into goal.  Surely he should have been forced to play from behind the mark?  Or did I see it wrongly?

Agree, Sue, but the umpire might have been murdered by Collingwood supporters if he'd called that back.

He dropped at least four, possibly more.

He also took five though and at least a couple were contested. He can certainly tidy up his game, but I've seen him do worse with those hands.

Just to finish a very nice day I see the pies will be fined for the late inclusion of White.

Oh the day just gets better and better.

And wasn't he just worth it? :P

Clinical today. Pies are a bottom four side on current evidence.

Backline held together. Forward line functioned well. Midfield carried on from last week with slick hands, good decisons (generally) and ferocious defence.

Frost easily his best game in the jumper. He and Pedo can play in the same team apparently :)

Now to tick off two in a row. I'll be making the trip down to watch it happen. Hopefully.

Did he look tired,  or were they paying him Extra attention? 

He didn't look tired, but I suspect they're still managing his minutes. Does anyone know what percentage of game time he played today?

The lid is off.

They could have rattled us a number of times, but we really stuck it out and it was fantastic to see. From memory, they didn't get closer than about 20 points and, each time they looked likely, we pushed back really hard.

I'm waiting for next week. As much as today's win was huge on a number of levels I want us to end Hardwicks career.

I think some need to man up and give Paul Roos an apology. After the Essendon game many wanted him gone and replaced with Goodwin.

At the end of the day Roosy is still the top dog. Forget about Goodwin for now. We know what we'll get from him in the future.

Time to kill off any ounce of confidence the tigers may have next week.

I'll put my hand up for that.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
