State Of Origin - AFLW

Recommended Posts

It is on this Saturday night.  Free Entry.  FTA on Ch7. 

http://www.afl.com.au/news/2017-08-31/take-no-prisoners-in-aflw-state-of-origin-clash

The Demons have two players in the Allies team:  Elise O’Dea and Bianca Jakobsson

We have four plays in the Big V.  including the Vic Captain, our Daisy.  The others are:  Karen Paxman, Melissa Hickey, Lily Mithen

Most on here are over football but it might be a good distraction from our recent debacle.

It would be great if the mods leave this thread on the main board so DL can be aware it and post to it during and post game. 

Should be a good spectacle.

Go Vics!

Where's the crowd?

Was watching 360 last night and they were talking up numbers of 22k+.

Have they hired GWS's fans?

Very, very poor promotion by the AFL.  Free entry but no one knew it was on!

I thought it was pretty clear. 

The news even got to Perth!

Maybe fans not onboard just yet?

Perhaps they are waiting for the 'proper' AFLW season. 

Or else they are all lazy like me and watching it from my comfortable warm couch, rather than confront the freezing Melbourne winter/spring...

Daisy top possession winner Q1.

Did you hear Debbie Lee:  "We don't get nervous, we get ready!"  Hire her!!

Cryptic?

She is an MFC employee...

...I get your point...have Deb rev up the men so that they turn up for the 1st quarter...

They are at the storm game. 

No I dont know, I mean a year ago they probably would have had half. I didnt think the crowd is to bad. 

But yeah I'm home watching it flicking between that and the storm. 

But seriously how good is Daisy? Just leads form the front and goes in hard. 

Its also nice to see the vic jumper on the field again.

Can we clone a male version of Daisy?

a true leader who just leads her team well, doesn't go missing, kicks goals and dominate a midfield. 24 touches and a goal in the  1st half

Its also nice to see hair buns on the footy field that don't look out of place.

She is a gun, the standard hasn't been to bad either.

Vics were relentless. Now that's how you close out a game!

I may have had my red-and-blue glasses on, but what I saw from the MFC players on both sides bodes very, very well for next season. As good as Daisy is, and she's a cut above pretty much everyone, the next tier on our list is nothing to sneeze at either.

A good friend of my wife's was playing in the AFLW last season and was courted by the MFC and one other club.  She 's been retired from footy for a couple of years, back cameback when the league got up and running.  The MFC were very keen on her signing on, but she chose the other club as the MFC had drafted a 'very strong team for the future' and she didn't think she'd get much of a run.  There's a lot to get excited about with our womens list.

The standard was better than last season. The skill level is a notch better, especially the kicking. 

Daisy was brilliant. Won a ton of ball, burst away from packs, hit up leading targets, chimed in with a nice running goal and was clearly the best player out there. If only we could have a male version of her in our mens team our midfield would be set! She's a gun and a great role model.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
