AFLW: Rd 2 vs Collingwood

Recommended Posts

The Demons return to enemy territory. The last time I went to that ground Jakovich lined up on Gary Pert. Who would have thought back then that Pert would be our CEO now.

I remember the last time I was at Vic Park. I am sure it was 1992 when we were down the bottom half and they were 1st on the ladder. We won with Sean Wight kicking the sealer. Don't know the last time we played there but it was around that time. Considering going but it is a fair hike but for memories sake. All the venemous filth sitting in their grand stand was quite a sight.

Taking my nearly-4 yo girls to their first footy game today. Last night I presented them with their first MFC jumpers as my heart burst with pride on such a momentous occasion! 

*who’s cutting onions? 

Carn Dees!

Make sure you sit amongst a heap of Collingwood supporters.

Your daughters will learn to hate the pies from an early age.😏

Quarter time: 2 points apiece. 

Dees had Double the amount of possessions in the first.

Paxman and O'dea doing the damage in the middle. Phillips has been very good as well. Pearce dominating the ruck.

3/4 Time

Collingwood 0-2-2

Dees has a chance to go a goal further up on the siren but played on.

I hope the Dees players don't mind cold showers.

Well done Dees beating the Filth comprehensively. How good was O'Dea?❤️Pearce is a pretty handy footballer as well. Keep it going Dees I want to see finals.

Far better performance from the mids taking away the Pies style of play (they love to keep it in tight and march it forward). Pearce and O'Dea were excellent but the midfield group in general got the pressure and effort right.

Backline did very well although the Pies forwards aren't a big threat. Edmonson looks a player. Lampard took a step up. Liked Kemp at half back.

Forward line still not perfect but really good pressure and created chances. Hanks is a little beauty.

And more than anything it was a disciplined team effort keeping the ball to the dead side for 2 quarters in to the wind and then using the open side with the breeze.

Footy doesn't have to be pretty and playing the percentages is often what's needed. The Pies couldn't get it to the fat side or get anything going when they had the wind, they couldn't stop our girls hitting the open space when we had the scoring end.

If it wasn't for Brazill the margin would've been 4 goals more.

Yes Chantel Emonson looks like she’ll be very good.  Played well against Roos too, who look like the team to beat at this early stage.   L Pearce has started the season off really well, expect coaches votes again.  Mithen is a natural footballer and I loved Hanks’ performance.

Thought Cat Phillips was good today, particularly defensively. 

Best for mine were Pearce, O'Dea, Cunningham, Hanks, Downie, Mithen, Paxman and Cordner.

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y
