POSTGAME: Rd17 vs Bulldogs

Recommended Posts

People. Unfortunately there is not much in the two's and we will have to put up with this crap for rest of year , playing blokes that should be in a suburban comp let alone VFL. We are officially the 2nd worst team. ANB, Hannan and many others are just not good enough. That shot by Fritta just summed up our day and season. I've had enough of this and trying to find excuses. Not Umpires fult it was our own players with about 6-8 VFL players at best.

So after yet another rebuild started by Roos in 2014 & 6 seasons later we are sitting bottom 4. Players like Petracca & Brayshaw have gone backwards, we can't take a mark inside 50 or even contest & the ball just rebounds back. Fed up with the excuses & understand injuries have been tough but good teams find a way. Who will be held accountable for yet another disastrous season & yet the club expects its suffering members to hang in there & watch another rebuild unravel. Its number 3 since 2008 & who knows how many since 64!

Six years in to the latest rebuild. 

Dub administration. Anyone who thinks this year is a blimp needs their head read.

Dud coach- the concept of coaching is not all about game plans it is improving players weaknesses both in the area of skill and mental approach.

Dud recruiting

Too many dud players.

 

Other than that we’re going alright.

Frustrating again, missed chances that make you scream at the telly and a heap down on output yet we nearly won it, although the Dogs hammered the points early in the 3rd and it might have been game over. 

 The Dogs were allowed to clear from kick-ins easily yet ours seem like extremely hard work to even find someone standing on their own. The start of the 3rd was painful after all their behinds. Would have preferred a goal from them just to get the ball back in the centre. Time to experiment with a new zone defending kick-ins because this one is clearly not working.

Re-ignite the small forwards thread, where are our players when the ball hits the deck? It really stood out today, similar to the Lions game. 

Petty definitely showed a bit up forward. Keep him there for the rest of the year and Salem is looking at a top 3 B&F finish. Thought Trac was very good again but a miss like that can’t be excused.

Wise, seriously dude, go back into retirement.

We are rank. Time for excuses are well and truly over. We cannot possibly continue to make the excuses we do and maintain any sort of self-respect.

Other teams find a way against ordinary teams like the Dogs regardless of injuries. 

And yet here you are once again, blindly defending the rubbish we serve up in the name of "Football"

The Bulldogs are NOT a good side, and we are reportedly a good team on this ground of late, and we still found a way to lose.

This has to stop. It just has to.

MAKE

IT

STOP

 

*dont reply with your normal common sense..... it will be lost on me in my current mood.

 

Serious problems and issues to address. None will make 2020 clear sailing

Jones and Lewis will be gone. They not be playing well but will leave a hole in leadership.

Brayshaw looks close to lost to footy, certainly with us.

ANB, Hannan need to go.

We do not have a matchwinner no matter how good Oliver is.

We do not have players that lap up the big moments.

And on it goes.

We actually have NO idea about how to play this modern game...NONE

Goodwin should have put the cue in the rack 5 -6 rounds ago. His game plan now looks desperate. 

Rushing underdone players back all year. Detrimental to the list and confidence.

Jetta and Lever were silly inclusions in hindsight.

Can't afford to stuff up another summer break. Need a fit and firing best 22 next year.

Just think we could have has a suburban coach, President and CEO for the past 6 years and be in much the same position. It is mind boggling. many will criticize but Roos for 2-3 years was always a desperate move.

mate...all the p;layers in the world wont help

consider:

A good chef with a sound knowledge of food can conjour an incredible meal with the most basic ingredients....because he understands it.

The same chef with rubbish ingredients will struggle....but he/she will cook according to what is before them.

A good recipe can work ok with average ingredients if the cook knows what hes doing.

A very poor recipe will yield something totally unpalatable irregardless of who's cooking simply because it's flawed.

If you have a very mediocre cook...no chef...and Ok ingredients but a poor recipe you will always get crud. 

I say time and time again....our demise is by design.

Loved the goal Kyle kicked over Josh's head for his first AFL goal.

Felt like we were coached not to win.

Why was Lewis in the midfield,  would love to know how often we viney,  oliver and brayshaw in there together.  Jetta was clearly not ready. 

Someone needs to teach ANB to pass the ball not just kick it.

Importantly someone needs to teach tbe Melbourne players to take a hit while disposing the ball - we just handball to anything remotely red/blue under the merest suggestion of pressure (it could even be a shadow)

Quite right Ding. I am sick of the worshipping at the Jackson altar. Sure he was competent. That was his job. He couldn't give a stuff, just like pert and all the rest.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi
