Very, very clever Richmond.

Pity it fooled nobody.

 

I doubt they were trying to trick us, just giving their best player the absolute maximum amount of time to get up for the game.

I'm not sure about that. He hasn't played a game in the lead up and apparently its a really tricky injury that you can't mess with or he could be out for another 8 weeks. Seems like a ruse for Roos that they might have rued...

 

Sorry about that....

You're probably right, but it was so opportunistic/unrealistic, that it now looks desperate.

Still nervous about this game though. Very nervous.

It feels like a 40 cm putt to win the Masters. Should nail it, but given the gravity of it all, it's terrifying.

We need to win this game.

At the station on the way in...loads of Melbourne everywhere. I feel a bit sick.

I'm heading down bridge Rd through enemy turf. Lots of nervous looking people of all colours.

I reckon Hardwick was just desperate. I can't see anything to be gained by tricking the MFC, and I doubt anyone would fall for it in any case.

Pandemonium outside Gate 3 as the ticket scanners break down causing a huge crowd waiting to get in. 

Food sellers outside cashing in with their exorbitant prices.

Apparently not confined to Gate 3. 

This could be interesting.

Well they are in a slightly desperate situation, Punt Road End going into meltdown already.....

That's not good I am leaving in 5mins and will arrive right on kick off...don't want to be stuck outside for the first half...

If all games so far this weekend are any indication there has been a lot of free kicks overlooked.

It seems as though there are instructions to let flow quite a lot. Consequently there are a lot of good and fair players not being protected..

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
