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.

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.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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
