AFLW: Rd 6 vs Bulldogs

Recommended Posts

A weekend of feeling dirty coming up providing we win. Barrack for Filth, GW$ and Cats, although unlikely any of them will get up. Cats likeliest to cause an upset against Dockers. 

If it doesn’t go to plan for us I’ll be cheering for Freo hard in the last round to knock Norf out of finals.

Damn that was a frustrating first three quarters. To totally dominate and get not much of anything in the first, and then get clawed away at for the rest, that's not what anyone is looking for.

Too much trouble being decisive and making good connections once the packs form. And, yeah, the eternal goal accuracy problem.

Really want to crush them in the final quarter, remind everyone that we deserve the finals spot.

It’s a win just! No thanks to the umpire who pulled that rediculous in the back free to the Dogs at the end, could have changed the result.

And the too high a minute earlier. The two blokes umpiring were appalling.

I actually enjoyed watching that on tv tonight. We should have been much further ahead at 1/4 time. But well done to Tegan Cunningham who kicked the winning goal. 

But gee there was no way that free kick count should have been that far apart.

 I didn't realise it was on TV.   The CH7 advertising is poor for AFLW imo.

I saw the last 5 mins or so.   Number 10 & 22 helped us get the ball back forward again, and tall No1 did the job.   We have some speed in the side.

I send a special congradulations to miss C. We should have won by more and were far better than the dogs. I look forward to the Adelaide game.

It hurts looking at the ladder(s), Dogs should be relegated to Division B and they can play for promotion, while the top 4 in Division A play for the flag. 

Thoroughly deserved win by the ladies today. Gutsy!

Zanker's goal is one for the ages.  She could easily win GOTY.  It wasn't flashy like some contenders will be but she kicked true from 40m out, on the boundary line where not much daylight was visible between the goal posts. 

She will be a champ.

The conference's are a disgrace.

The 4 best teams this year are clearly 

Adelaide, north, Freo and us.

Brisbane beating the dogs Is the only time conference b has beaten anyone from conference a.

That 2 of these 4 teams should miss out on finals, and that one of Geelong  Carlton or Brisbane will get a home final is a disgrace.

I am so disappointed about yesterday's game that I can't even get upset about the conference system any more. 

Simply put we blue it yesterday!  Kicked ourselves out of the finals in the first quarter.  Sure they had the run of the umps all day but more accuracy for goal (1.5 to their 0.0) in the first quarter should have shut the door on them before they could get a look in.  We played brilliantly in the first quarter and they didn't even manage a rushed behind! 

Not sure what happened after qtr time but we didn't seem to know we were playing for a finals spot ie %age, not just a win.  This lack of awareness showed in the post match celebrations of the win.  Sure a win was nice but nothing to celebrate under the circumstances.  I bet if Daisy was there she would have worn the greatest scowl on the siren, that a great opportunity went begging. 

For the 3rd year in a row we will probably miss finals by %age and it is entirely our fault.

    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

    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
