Finals Week 3

Recommended Posts

3pm on Sat for the 2nd final, wtf?

I hope Hawkins gets a 2nd week for having the audacity to appeal

good to see Garry Lyon and co saying he should take the week and run. Most in the media thinking he was lucky to only get one week. imo Hawk has zero chance to overrule the decision

Call me a cynic, but I'm inclined to believe the AFL has shown how tough it is by handing out the 1 week knowing he can have a no risk appeal and will then get off.  History would indicate I'm right, but you never know I guess.

Just got an email saying guest passes are available in the AFL members for both preliminary finals.

Understandable for Collingwood v Giants.... but Richmond v Geelong ... where are Richmond's 100,000 members??

Oh God - not sure I could handle another Collingwood GF. I get back from overseas on Tuesday and if Collingwood get through I will subjected to torment both at work and home😫😫. Good reason to stay away for another week.

I hope for my sanity, GWS do the right thing.

I can kind of see why gws are disappointed, and also Id be pretty annoyed if I saw one of the people that sat on this case in the collingwood rooms the week before with the scarf on. I know Shane Wakelin wouldn't be thinking oh Im going to decided to rub him out because he is playing collingwood but it would still annoy. you.

Sent a text to SEN this morning asking whether they thought Blicavs would tag Martin, has him covered for run and not a problem when he goes forward...Lyon thought not, I think so...

It's the right move to my mind and something that Scott would try.

Let's watch what happens.

My feeling is that GWS will be blown away by the crowd, umpires and Pies team.  Greene is so important to them and with no Coniglio, Ward and now Whitfield, a win is unlikely.  Imagine us missing Clarry, Harmes, Viney and Gus.

The other game will be closer.  Geelong aren’t being given enough respect by the media.  The week one winners have only played one game in nearly four weeks so Tiges no certainties.  

But we’ll see...!

Downright disgusting how much of a free ride Collingwood have gotten this final series. A total joke. They should never have been top 4 in the first place if not for a totally pointless upset by Hawthorn in the final round that achieved nothing. Handed a double chance and a golden ticket straight to the Grand Final as a result of the Giants' poor luck.

I hope GWS just come out and massacre them physically. They have nothing to lose, might as well make the bastards hurt.

Giants saying the whole match review/tribunal system is favouring Coll. Greene suspension

The MRO was Michael Christianson, a Collingwood premiership player and Shane Wakelin, Collingwood player on Tuesday night's Tribunal.

If it was a Melbourne player I would be also be arguing the system is rigged.  The AFL should never have allowed that much potential bias in favour of Coll, GWS opps in the Prelim.  Poor 'optics' to say the least.

And, fails 'the pub test'!

The AFL's moral compass is completely askew.

They should never have allowed Wakelin to sit on the tribunal after hanging around the C'wood room with his scarf. He should have been removed from the panel at that point.

But a long time ago, they should have told him upfront, part of being on the tribunal panel is that you may not be seen wearing any club's colours or hanging around any club's facilities.

They don't seem to understand any of this. They seem to grapple (unsuccessfully) with why this might be an issue at all. Any why should anyone worry, when there are record crowds!!!

When it comes to refereeing and officiating, they don't have any course charted. They don't know where they're going or why. They just drift with the currents and only react when rocks hove into view.

End of the day: the only optics they care about are the TV screens, ie big audiences looking at big crowds.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    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
