Round 17 Non MFC Games

Recommended Posts

I thought pies were a sneaky chance with their top 4 chances on the line but didn't have the balls to tip them...

I am not surpised the pies won, that's what they do. Lift in big games. 

But how pathetic were west coast in that final term. They had there best team in, yes they lost Cripps but the pies lost Moore therefore Kennedy and Darling should have dominated. Darling did well but Kennedy had a shocker. 

They led by 16 points at 3/4 time on there home ground and all they kicked was 1 measly point. That just isn't good enough. They had a chance to go 2 games clear of the pies and sit nicely on 2nd spot. They blew it big time tonight. 

Now we have to hear about the pies win. Thank you west coast.

That measly point was their only score since the 10 minute mark of the 3rd. Completely lost their way.

Maggots keeping Magpies in it.  A very rare occurrence over there. The AFL will be thrilled with the closeness of it. 

I wonder if Stevo had a few (through his mate of course) on a close result.

Maybe the conversation Bucks had with the umpires at the start might have been to confirm the odds were in the favour of a close result. Oh and a magpie payout would be more beneficial.

Was there tonight great game and great result. Meth Coast is a team I despise and I tipped the Pies.

Thought Pies were lucky to be that close at halftime but they controlled the 2nd half didn't get rewarded in the 3rd and looked in the 4th as if they weren't going to capitalize for their dominance inside 50m.

Grundy destroyed Natanui around the ground, Goodwin and the FD need to learn from that along with Maynes job on Hurn.

You know what they do Mono ?? They hide guys like Cameron in the Waffle..... Noone knows anything about them over here and they get picked number 59 or something!!!

Crackin Win by Collingwood!!

Ffs they didn't hide him, everyone knew about him. He was outstanding in the WAFL Colts.

Let's not rewrite history he was part of their next generation academy and were never giving him up.

Freo are also going to do the same this year with Liam Henry.

We could do with getting some value out of our NT deal and getting first access to their kids from outback communities

Far out Cameron, the 18yo brother of Charlie was picked at 39 as part of the WC academy.  how the hell did he not go first round, did no one bid on him?  seems like a top 5 talent to me.

We are so far behind WC's fwd line it is not funny.

I agree Pennent, we need to work on a NT academy.

Its one of the reasons Matty Whelan' was recruited "... He will also manage the club’s Reconciliation Action Plan, in conjunction with the current working group, focus on the Next Generation Academy, with an emphasis on Alice Springs and the club’s Indigenous/Multicultural pathways, plus build relationships in the Northern Territory..."  whelan-rejoins-melbourne-in-new-role

The role was created 2.5 years ago but haven't heard anything re talent development around Alice or NT.  Hopefully Matty has some players in the wings to unveil soon...

Be interesting to see if Caro and Barrett think Collingwood “over celebrated” at the end.

de Goey looked like he was doing Riverdance when the siren went and there were more Collingwood jumpers dry humping than in a Centrelink queue.

As much as I hate the hate the filth, I have to admit that it was an impressive win against a top side interstate.

Can I get in early and say to any StKIlda fan going down to geelong tonight to sit though what Im assuming is going to be a cold, wet windy night and I think it could be a hiding well done to you and also sitting through with geelong fans around you. 

The game in Tassie could be interesting today as well. I reckon the hawks will get the job done although Gunston could be a loss. 

But Nth please do us a favour and win today. 

Can someone explain why richmond get there last 7 games all at the G? Yes I know they are a team that people watch, 2 years ago they won the flag and I know they won't be the home team for all games but serioulsy 7. That gives them a dream run. They don't have to go anywhere.

Conflicted about the Swans-Blues result. Swans lose and we can feasibly finish higher. But equally Blues more likely to overtake us and gift us a top two pick.

Wonder if Cunnington will punch anyone in the guts again. Has done it 5 times this year and has yet to be suspended.

Yep. I could've sworn the rule was if you're fined 3 times in a year it's an automatic suspension.

Edit

According to this story from 2017, it is (was) 3 fines = suspension:

Was really impressed by the way The Pies ground their way back into the game last night. They did exactly what we can't manage,   they were dominated then just stopped the opposition,  nothing pretty and the rest came from there. Our defensive workrate has been seriously wanting much of this year

I've watched the Bummers last four matches and no other team has got a better run with the umps this year than them (I don't include West Coast with umpire Dean Margetts as that's the gold standard)

Yeah Cunnington was lucky he hit the footy and not the essendon players stomach. But seriously is he stupid or what? I mean he has been fined over 15.000 so far this year. He has been wanred about doing it and he tries to do it again. 

When he did it to Vince people called Vince out for going down easily but he has shown form doing this. 

Not that I condone it but Ablett got booed for his 2 shots no one does it to cunnington. I guess he isn't the superstar player.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    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
