Game against Freo - umpiring



Recommended Posts

Just wondering folks, what do you expect to happen in our upcoming game against Freo when, half-way through the first quarter, the Mighty Dees are six goals ahead and firing in all lines with no hope of Freo curtailing the devastation? Will the White Brethren interfere once again?

Consistency says: 'You betcha!'

Common sense says: 'Surely not! It is impossible for that to occur in the modern game.'

Hope says: 'The AFL will launch an official enquiry on behalf of the MFC if it does happen.'

It may not be in the first quarter that this begins to occur but experience and review of our current season would indicate that should it occur any time before the 20-minute mark of the final quarter, it will definitely happen. What'cha reckon, folks?

This game shouldn't worry us with the umpiring as we should put FREO  away completely and boost our percentage. The game we should worry about the  umpiring is the game against Geelong  at the Cattery. that is 2 weeks away.

I lost my s*@^ during and after the game last week ,this week i will only be on my laptop checking scores now and again, because if i find out those snot blocks have let freo back in game for what ever reason, i will lose it. and nothing or no one will be safe.

I would like to see the players walk onto the ground encircling the umpires, hands in air, in an orchestrated, synchronised swimming-like choreography, just to drive the point home.

Perhaps we can arrange for Strauss' eponymous Blue Danube to accompany, although something more fervent like Prokofiev's Dance of the Knights or perhaps Flight of the Bumblebee may convey the haphazard nature of the umpiring.

Just checked the teams - everything should be OK - we’ve got those two quiet unassuming chaps who never put themselves into the spotlight - No 18 and No 28!! My god, our great game is in trouble.

Complaining about the umpiring before the game has begun, I like it. Get on the front foot

Complaining about the umpiring before the game has even begun is the most MFCSS thing I've ever heard. I love it.

Yep, we'd obviously be 14-0 with a percentage of 180 if it wasn't for the umpires. Bastards.

Poita, that is one of the most poignant statements of all time on DL - a truism of note, one that has become a fact of life for the MFC, providing deep insights into the 'interested parties' who consider the manipulation of the laws of nature and fair play to be easy achievements, blindly turning their eyes to the heavens of self-righteousness. Helleluja, Brudder!

Given that this week we've been handed Razor Ray and Pannell to deal with, I think it's quite appropriate to start the thread prior to the game. We'll need to be a 15 goal better side to win this, so the Freo odds are very juicy.

Razor and Pannel? Are you serious? This week? Seems suss AFL would send Razor Ray to Darwin, enough there for a good conspiracy!

In some matters, it pays to be prepared. However silly that may sound with the umpires.

Now I am accustomed the blame game post match but this takes the blame game to a new level. 

Risk analysis and assessment is always advisable - do I watch a TV live telecast or do I just get drunk at the thought of it all?

So is that fatty and baldy together again.The indomitable duo, Batman and Robin, Bonny and Clyde, Donald and Kim.

The public should pay more here, for the Comedy than the Game. Dare we think this might come to pass before year's end, that people might turn up for a laugh, like a Greek Play in an Amphitheatre.....i wonder

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    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

    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
