Is it just me or are the umps paying frees that wouldn't be paid in the mens game. Just let the game flow.

The girls must have been watching the mens tapes from last year.  Dominating inside 50 more scoring shots but inaccurate

Yeah. Field kicking is ok but poor in front of goals. 
Dees are all over it though

It's not you but put in perspective the conditions are contributing to quite a few head highs. If they are there, then pay them.

Dominating but only two goals up, hopefully wasted opportunities don’t hurt us.

It’s too early to start kicking couches. Playing so well, just get some reward.

Dees 12 scoring shots to 1 and a 32-6 lead. 

Good pressure and good wet weather footy.

It’s ours unless the Dogs can kick 5 goals in the last quarter... highly unlikely given the conditions.

Well, this all seems to be going according to plan.  Just scrape our way through the first few rounds until we get some match fitness into our underdone players and get Lauren Pearce & co back.

On a side note, it does seem to be an AFL tradition to in some way make a mess of the women's fixture/ladder.  I love that after the roud one win we were out of the 'conference' qualifying line, while the team we beat managed to be inside their conference qualifying group.

But the quirks of the fixture means it would be very valuable to pile on a few more goals late in this game and try to bury the Bulldogs, particularly given their first game percentage surge.  It's a genuine 8-point game and in a short season percentage is much more likely to play a part breaking deadlocks.

Is anyone else confused with the colour clash? Surely we should be wearing the all red back.

I don't care that there are people out there rubbishing this game.  I enjoyed watching tonight.  Our pressure was great. 

Maybe because it's just great to see Melbourne win if it's the male or female team.

Plus we have some awesome players & a great leader

A good win driven with intensity at the ball and good fitness that allowed them to run out he game in difficult wet conditions.

Well done.

Good stuff, Shelley Scott deserved a goal, thought she had a ripper of a game up forward.

Considering the conditions I thought our skills were pretty good. I think the comments from the detractors are so influenced by the male version of the game, they need to put that aside. Often the Woman's game is slower in movement which allows reaction time in the mental game to be enhanced. I think that is why Daisy is so valuable. It always has more positives when you win but I enjoyed the Dees woman's side effort tonight as much for the plan and the execution as anything.

A good win for the ladies. Tackling pressure was great and we stopped the dogs getting any quick clearances. Again Hore was a great contributor and Newman played a great game. Paxman is a class above all others and Daisy was fantastic. Cunningham and Zanker had quiet ones so it was good to see others like Scott contribute on the forward line.

I hope the men can gain some of the intensity and desire that the girls show.

Just watched the second win for our Women’s team... fantastic win against the other inaugural women’s team ...the Bulldogs. Thought the standard had definitely improved last year but found this game very enjoyable to watch. Are the skills there ...not  yet ...but intent & willingness...100%...What I love...the passion for the jumper...something exciting happening this season ...Go Dees !!

    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

    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
