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.

    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

    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.

    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
