Oh well. I guess we now need Brisbane to [censored] Adelaide and then us win the last two by lots and we make it.

Watching that game,I couldn't help but think the Umpires had been encouraged to help the local team win.A bit of success in Western Sydney helps promote Australian football there.

The free kick count was grossly in their favour despite Melb having far more of the ball.

On the rare occasions the ball went inside their 50, you could see they were just itching to pluck out a free in front. Sure enough, their only goal in the second half came from a free for which the commentators couldn't fathom the cause.That proved to be the winning goal.

They got a 50 m penalty that was at least 75 metres(3 kick lengths). Our 50 m penalty was 40 m.,judiciously stopped out of scoring range.

The commentators were glaringly obviously hoping for a Western Sydney win. Kelli Underwood's biased, nasal ,cliche-ridden drawl was nauseating.Is Nathan Burke somehow connected to the Giants? Seemed like it.

I don't understand how this website forum can embrace the new AFLW, but simultaneously let what 'Biffen' (whom after a bit of research is an apparently regular and somewhat respected poster on this site) has written on the  No T$ etc thread stand? Its a disgraceful piece of unrelenting sexism and bigotry, specifically aimed at degrading women?

Im not a bleeding heart but the irony is palpable.

Agree with the first four paras. We could have had a number of frees right in front of goals too. 

Disagree with the last para. The commentators just picked up in the first half of the first quarter what our coach didn't pick up until he looked at the stats after the match and thought "we may have overused the hands a bit". GWS just got numbers to the fall of the ball all over the ground, and were happy to just get a good purchase on a kick out of congestion instead of trying to finesse it through traffic all day. 

Underwood & Burke were annoying mainly because they could see what our brains trust couldn't.

Maybe taking things at their apparent face value a bit Biz?  I don't know Biffen, but the T$ thread is not to be taken seriously.  Seriously.

If your beef is over there, please take it up over there.

From an avid AFLW fan.

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
