A lovely morning for GF.  Shame we are not there.  Hoping for a good game of footy.  Share what you are up to and your thoughts on the game (to take our minds off Hogan and Freo for a little while...)

Feel a bit for Dunne.  He did the hard yards with us, didn't choose to leave and didn't mess us around when it was time to go.  Found a niche for himself and has performed well.  Missing out on a career long dream is tough especially has he may not get many more chances.

Not barracking for the Pies tho'...

It’s a funny one this year. It was a lot easier to get into the GF excitement when we were cellar dwellers. Now there’s that pang of ‘so close’..

Go Weagles for 2 reasons: 

- we’d be able to say ‘ah well , we got beaten by the eventual Premiers’.

- under no circumstances will I ever have the ability to barrack for the Filth. 

 

We’ll be there soon, my friends...

The game will be tough to watch. A good time to do some household jobs I have been putting off for a long time.  I might just go for the Magpies to win because last Saturday at halftime my mother in law who lives in Perth called me just to remind me how well WC were playing and lauding their beautiful kicking. Like she never calls me direct unless she normally wants something so obviously a naked example of rubbing it in.  I will be more than happy to offer my sympathies if they lose. The only small positive I can wish for.

Tickets for restricted members go on sale at 11am.   Thought it was a very small queue this morning...proves that no one except pies & eagles supporters care...very different demographic in member this morning

Agree, no enthusiasm or interest in today’s game. Still grieving we came up short.

Well, just saw that ‘ScoMo’ (what sort of [censored] nickname is that anyway??) will be cheering for ‘Perth’ today. 

Kiss of death.

We could have been there but such is life. I will watch over a few beers and a Parma but no emotion. Also don’t care for a close game, I’d be more than happy for a whitewash this year as long as West Coast are the ones washing.

I’ll open a bottle of a cheeky Shiraz, have a cheese board, put on a Mahler symphony and read some Stoic philosophy in Ancient Greek, as all Demon supporters would.

I’m sitting outside gate 1 waiting for my husband to meet me here. So many Pies supporters - I feel dirty. Joffa and the gang on their way over the footbridge chanting ‘Collingwood’. Got my antiseptic hand wash ready.

Just walked past Andrew Gaff who looked surprisingly cheerful. No where near as big a bloke as I thought he would be.

Its going to be a long afternoon....

Early Channel 7 coverage has Oscar MacDonald winning the final of the longest drive off the tee competition they have been running during the season. 292 meters, that’s up there with the tour guys! I think he plays off 1. You wouldn’t pick him as having exceptional hand/eye coordination sometimes on the footy field. 

Well done, won a set of Taylor Mades and the gold jacket.

Worth a watch if you didn’t see it. 

Good man Joffa. Puts all the million dollar trades and billion dollar rights deals into a bit of perspective. 

“Quite a few people out there won’t have eaten very well the last few weeks tucking a few dollars away to pay for a finals ticket.”

Honestly don’t care who wins today but if he’s waving that stupid gold jacket around at half five pm I’ll be happy for him.

Really not that interested but like all Grand Finals I will watch. I hate the filth so I would like to see the cokeheads beat them by 1 point and then see McGuire squirm like a maggot ducking for cover.

Not sure if i can watch it. Still sad and still in a bit of shock actually from last weekend...

 

Dam!

Agreed. I am on my way to the game and am not looking forward to barracking for team that knocked us out of the finals. Support the Pies for the day, no way.

Came out in the MCC ballot so may as well make use of my $695 a year membership. 

Go Eagles 😞😏😴

It will be a good game to watch. Don’t support either.

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
