Robbed by the umpires!

Those 3 dubious frees within 20m of North goals at the 7/8 min mark in th elast Qtr from which they kicked the winning goal. 

And, the missed frees in our favour all game.  OMG!

Terribly deflating to have a really good game decided like that.

If this is the future for AFL umpiring then this game is quite bleak. By far the worst display i have seen in a long time.

More scripted than WWE. Might back Essendon for the blokes flag.

One of the most lopsided umpiring quarters I can remember. Frustrating! King gifted at least 2 of her goals and her free in the last was an absolute sham.

Some shockers by the umps.

You know you’ve jumped the shark when even the commentators are talking about it.

Could not agree more. The dees should complain. Appalling.

That last one against mithen  was inexplicable. I assume it was for dragging it in and not getting out. Please.

Well done our girls on a fighting effort all day in serious heat for two weeks in a row.

its always hard to beat a good team especially when they have pillaged all the other teams to create a super team, and then having 3 extra players on your team who have the luxury of being able to blow a whistle every time something goes against them and reverse the flow. Well done AFL and well done umps on demonstrating just how easy it is to influence a game of footy 👍

That in the back with 2 mins to go not paid in our defensive square was unbelievable.

Several soft frees to North...what's that about?

Having said that, a kick in with 2 mins to go when you are four points down goes only one place - UP THE GUTS!

Instead the gals went wide and misdirected and coughed up a free the other way.

When we regained they ball they refused to do anything but go wide. Killed their own chance. It should be a tough review.

Yep agreed re going wide in the last 2 mins. Fumbles and dropped marks st critical points in those last few minutes also. . Also having no one inside 50 and giving them a spare down there didn’t help. It’s hard to watch the woman sometime... we miss Daisy badly.

That was disgusting umpiring. And a few too many errors really - L Pearce an easy dropped mark with a couple of minutes to go and too many wide kicks. 

Disappointing because the pressure and work rate was excellent, backline were solid, some of the lead up play to goals was great.

Probably the best game of AFLW ever until 3/4 time and then the heat and poor umpiring wrecked it.

Lily Mithen's best ever game.

The annoying thing is watching Paxman who is a super player but she takes on too many tackles and dishes out bad handballs under pressure because she's not been trained up her whole career how to be a smooth mover with dual sided skills. Then you've got little T Hanks who's a jet and can bob and weave, handball both sides, run with the ball or dish it backwards and you see the standard that is achievable in the future.

If the AFL want us to watch AFLW, and I presume it is in their interests, stop serving up second class suburban umpires. And while I'm at it... stop stuffing around with AFLX and put the money into the women, who have had a legitimate competition for well over a decade!!!

The AFL needs to inform that second rate, wanna-a-be, suburban whistle blower that the hands in the back rule has changed!

TBH, I think the AFL is expecting professional level football from the players but are not expecting the same from umps.
Why would you be an ump?

They need to start attracting a better calibre of person by renumerating them well at both AFL and AFLW level. And.... dropping and de-listing them when they're s#$t.
There's no reason why they can't have a pool of 40 to 50 umpires just like an AFL team has and recruit and de-list if their decision making is poor.
It's a blight on the game. I know it's hard to officiate the game these days but geez, they should have the nous to put the whistle away in such a good (and critical) contest as this.
They pay so much for television rights and put so much money into both forms of the game, surely they could do the same for umps and potentially recruit good ex-footballers who have retired, didn't quite make it or have had their careers cut short etc.
Just pay them to be a professional and drop them when they are not. Make it a career path that men and women take seriously because they certainly can't be taken seriously at the moment.

Razor Ray is the best we've got?

It was very hot out there.  Tough conditions for players (and spectators).  We worked so hard all day but they have assembled a v good list so it was a ripper contest.   Dees had lots of contributors.  It was the best all round game I’ve seen from Kate Hore and Paxman, Mithen and Phillips were good all day.  L Pearce no coaches votes today but gave her all.  The King in the back ‘free’ and the other last qtr one in front ends up being the difference between the two most skillful AFLW sides, which was heartbreaking.   It’s going to be really hard for us to make finals from here. 

Blacktown 2.05pm next Sunday 3 March so Meggs and son will be watching on TV.  Incidentally it will also be AVB’s birthday...

    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

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores.

    AINT THAT A CRYING SHAME by The Oracle

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan
