I wouldn't guarantee it...GWS are a talanted unit if they get it together & C/wood injuries might bring them undone...

“Canned” Giants chants coming through speakers in outer. Something new ...

Seems hard to believe. Where did they find enough Giants supporters to make a chant?

Essendon were the ‘best of the worst’ and deserved what they got.

GWS were ugly and mean around the contest, and the doggies couldn’t take it, or shake it.

Lions showed (like us in the Prelim) that excited kids don’t beat hardened men when it counts.

pies have easier path to Granny.

Richmond, Eagles and Pies showing class.  Cats showing a bit of age.  Without Danger and Kelly, they bat pretty thin.

You made your point, that you don’t care. Fine

i don’t like the look of our Captain stuffing his face into an 🍦 ice cream in Rome, after the year we all endured, whilst The Finals are on. 

I would prefer him to be in the Crowd, soaking in the pressure of tonight’s game, then go away. 

But if he has to be in Rome now, do it quietly and not all over instagram

We disagree. No big deal

Well, the player that everyone says should be the next captain is cycling somewhere.

Who kicked Collingwood’s goals?

Dusty kicked 6. 

J Kelly 3 , Greene 3, Finlayson 3, Cameron 4

Cripps 4 , Kennedy 4, Ryan 3

If we get pick 2 we need to get some midfield class. Would go pick up 2 small forwards also.

Nothing wrong with Max Gawn’s attitude

Another finals series where we have indigenous players showing a clean pair of heels and class. Note to our recruiters. get Neville Jetta on a roadtrip with the recruiters and interview every indigenous talent that has nominated for the draft.

2nd week of the finals is usually the most boring week of the season - except for last year when we were in it.

This year it sparks some more interest than usual though:

Geelong vs West Coast - I'll take some delight in whoever loses, probably more delight if it's Geelong going out in straight sets.

Brisbane vs GWS - I'll take some delight in whoever wins, probably more delight if it's GWS just to hear their ripping theme song again.

Not sure if you are joking (sarcasm can be difficult to discern -  grapeviney says hi). But if not I agree. I love the giant's theme song.

I give has a real shot at going all the way. I think they'll beat lions (Great odds btw - lions short priced face. But shouldn't be. Favorites yes. But not 1.65). And if they do they'll have some real momentum.

Toby Greene. What a low life [censored]

Anyone Eye Gouging should be banned from the game

The video doesn’t look good. The lights will be on late at AFL house to work out how to fob this one off. As someone who was eye gouged in suburban football many years ago I have zero tolerance for this rubbish. If it is established that this is indeed what happened it should be curtains for Mr Green. Of course it will be deemed as something less but really what was he up to?

My one line extract from Titus O'Reily's the-monday-knee-jerk-reaction-afl-finals-week-one

WCE vs Ess:  "The loss keeps the dream of Essendon making 6000 days without a finals win, well and truly alive".

Cats vs Pies:  "On reflection, Chris Scott was right, it would have been nice for the Cats to have lost on their own ground".

GWS vs WBD:  "Heading to the Gabba will be a challenge, up there they can’t play “Let’s go, Giants, let’s go” over the speakers. There’s no better way to draw attention to the lack of a crowd than playing fake chants".

Lions vs Tigers:  "As for Richmond fans, get excited, but not, ‘I’ll get my 2019 Premiers tattoo this week’ excited".

Titus is always good for a laugh gets to the nitty gritty of what is actually going on!

Well it's a silly opinion. Measuring who gets a holiday by how hard you perceive someone has worked throughout the year and merits time off.

You'd be a hit on the coaching panel.

    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. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    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

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot
