I doubt the AFL truly cares SW.   As long as most of their favs are in the top 8 and the crowds/ratings are still rolling in.

Wasn't the score review originally mooted to be a goal line review only?  Then it somehow morphed in to a review of play outside the goal square to determine if the ball was touched.

The AFL failed to bed down the goal line stuff and is now struggling with the 'touched' aspect also.

Wow another score review fiasco.  They didnt show the ball as it went completely over the line, instead stopping and shuffling the replay as it hit the line only.

The AFL is a serious joke comp right now

Not really. Jokes should be humorous. 

Just clicked on Port v 🐶.  Maggots absolutely zero feel for the game re deliberate OOB.  Paid a mis hit by Daniels then ignored a blatant one by Port in Doggies forward picket.  

Serious rain and hail.

To be fair the serious rain makes it doubly hard to adjudicate Mono.

Absolutely loving the chaos of wet weather vs the usual insane burst running and "keeping off" efforts into space of the usual dry stuff.

Also interesting to see how different players handle the wet conditions.  Some get it and some don't.  Great 'Ant' (Caleb) weather although Jones has been doing well also in patches.

SWYL - actually quite hard to miss them. 

All pervasive and encouraging what may well already be and certainly will become a big influence on results aka “the integrity of the game”.  

Look what it has done to cricket: 20/20, 50/50 without any doubt and probably to the “pure form”, tests.  

And as for these little spot fire bets such as first goal or most possessions - is there any doubt that these are not at least occasionally rigged?

I find these ads a total turn off: I have mentioned before that I often change channels or radio stations when they come on and often forget to switch back.

Ken Hinkley might have taken a bit of a hit for ‘Coach Of The Year’ I reckon.

It would be laughable if it wasn't such a serious problem for many people, when these ads bombard everybody with the joys of betting and the many ways you can bet on all kinds of scenarios, and then finish off with "please gamble responsibly". Kids don't even know what that means.

So Hawthorn has 80, 000 members but as soon as they start losing very few of them turn up. To be fair, the dogs they registered as members aren't allowed direct entry into the ground. Pass me the tissues.

That's a shame. The dogs would certainly be more loyal to their team. 

Hawthorn supporters should show some intestinal fortitude and start acting like supporters. How many years have we been going to games with no expectations of even coming close to winning? We do it because we love our club. Hawthorn supporters are spoiled and should be ashamed of themselves.

A number of consolations for the Pie supporters, not that I should trying to comfort them, but… 1) Round 16 2017, Richmond totally embarrassed by the Saints, kicked up the backside all the way to a flag.

2) Despite losing nearly every other stat against the Roos last night, they win the free kick count 27 to 11! The umps have made it clear how much they love Collingwood this year, and no matter what happens, the Pies can always count on them. The umps took the Bulldogs to a flag in 2016, they’ll do the same for the Pies this year. (And if it wasn’t for that disgraceful display by the BHF and his mates in the Thursday night game, GWS would now be second, Collingwood third).

Very happy that WBD beat Pies and North beat Port.

Only prob is we are yet to play WBD and North.  No longer the 'easy' games they once seemed.

North has now won 3 of 4 since Shaw took over. We have 4 wins for the season.

North looked absolutely the worst team in the comp 10 weeks ago. If they finish above us this year it'll only add to the embarrassment.

Tigers took a big chance bringing 7 players back many of whom are underdone.  So far it has not worked.  Saints on fire and making it hard for powers to be to sack Richardson.

And, the tigers might end up 9th...how novel!

But will be happy to see tigers win - just to help keep essendon out of the finals!

Roos seem to be playing Dees of 2018 style footy.

Tons of pressure, hard at the man, contested footy with quick play on.

    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
