Round 12 Non MFC Games

Recommended Posts

Gee I guess the secret is sack your coach and you win the following week. But I would love to see Viney or someone just lead the way cripps does. 38 possessions 4 goals. Thats how you bounce back after a quiet week. 

I also read on the herald sun website that a fan was ejected at 1/2 time for abusing Mathew Nicholls. Wonder what was said.

I too wish Jack Viney was a 195cm midfielder who could kick with both feet. But alas he's not.

We work with what we have at Melbourne. At least we have Clayton Oliver.

How great is patrick Patrick Cripps?  38 touches and 4 goals. 

Hes a level above Clayton Oliver, who needs to start hitting the scoreboard, hes way too good not to.

I read that he called him a "bald [censored]" ... so speaking the truth is now an ejecting offence in Gill's PC AFL.

Enough!

 

And Adelaide overran another team with a big lead in the last quarter!  Two weeks in a row,  Have they been swabbed?

Would love some of Adelaides home ground advantage, 24 frees to 7!

GWS must have played seriously dirty football and Adelaide the near perfect game is all can say to that.

Adelaide looked average against us last week but have beaten red hot GWS and are now sitting in 5th.

even though we lost we made crows look second rate. 

Maybe we need to give them more credit and we actually lost to a good team.

bodes well for us vs pies

I read this morning the AFL has come out and said there were 7 incorrect decisions during the game. The count should have been 24-0.

Also, I’m wondering if anyone else saw Phil Davis give Betts a high 5/congratulatory tap after Betts kicked a freakish goal late on? When players were moving back to position I’m almost certain I saw Davis do that and I thought at the time if that was a Melbourne player I’d be livid. 

Curious, is that good sportsmanship to recognise greatness on the spot or is that best left for after the game?

AFL in 2019. Where the AFL arrest and punish fans rather than address the terrible umpiring standards. Where 20-year-old Docklands stadium wins the Brownlow for Best Stadium.

Tried to watch GWS vs Adel which was apparently the game of the round so far. [censored] boring. Sacrilege around here to mention it but the NBA playoffs have been x10 as entertaining. Warriors down 1-3, it's glorious.

It’s sort of akin to a tennis pro tapping their racquet head when an opponent pulls off a miraculous winner, or wins a epic rally. Sometimes you just have to acknowledge the greatness.

Some years ago the Brazilian maestro Ronaldinho, playing for arch rival Barcelona, torched Real Madrid at the Santiago de Bernabeu, putting on a virtuoso display of skill and goal scoring that was simply too brilliant not to appreciate. The Madrid fans gave him a standing ovation as he left the field. Unheard of!

The HS website shows an article of a Max Q&A with May.  Can someone who can get behind the paywall summarise the gist of it please?

Edit:  Should have posted this should be in the Rnd 12 thread.  Nonetheless, would still appreciate it if someone could post summary.  Cheers.

Geelong are lucky enough to have senior players who contribute significantly week in week out. They have four or five players who are plus 28 who feature in their top 15 each week.

Remind me in that sense of North with Harvey and the Saints withe Riewoldt, Montagna and Milne.

They have also lucked into youth in the form of Kelly etc.

Hell..... I'm jealous

MFC are full of excuses, cats have strong culture, development, good drafting & get good free agents. Haven't bottomed  out since 07, won 3 flags & always in the mix to challenge for a flag.

MFC since 07, multiple early picks, rebuild after rebuild, 1 finals appearance & we have fallen off the cliff again in 2019!  Its the Melb way we just sustain any long term success!

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
