Yep saw him on podcast the other day and ch 9 re keeping blockbusters next year? This is the sort of disrespectful comment that f$&ks this club bloke works his [censored] off for this Club.  Why don’t you seek him out and ask? You are probably scared of your own shadow I suspect Go Dees

btw you should talk to administrators they’ll find you a mate

Well someone just got highly triggered, and kickers in a knot 🤣 I've actually had the privilege of meeting Glenn. Really warm guy.

By the way I really was asking for a mate??

The truth is there is no virus, or very week, in Victoria there are 127 active cases, only a hand full are in hospital, and only 2 in ICU,

I work in abattoirs, person at my work knows many at Cedar meats, out of all the postive test, no one went to hospital, no one had more then a small cold, we live in a nanny state. Say goodbye to freedom, this is the start of the nanny state, they are setting the bar low for lockdowns, be prepared for lockdown every few years, flu kill way more then 100 people every year, that's right over 7400 cases only 100 death, average age 77, sorry to say people die, the price to pay  to save everyone is your freedom 

Except Covid is now the biggest global killer this year.  Please feel free to lick people’s faces or whatever freedom looks like to you.

I do think we got an advantage,  being able to have a full-scale practice match on the  'G'

But is a intra club match conditioning the same as a real match on a 2pm Saturday?

It could go either. We are a bit more fresher in the legs, or we just simply lack good conditioning match fitness.

I suppose time will time against the catters.. eek.

One big advantage is for the players who were not selected for the don's game as they got a 20 v 20 game under their belt, which according to Ben Matthews on the zoom members meeting tonight was 4  x 20 minute quarters

Even worse comment if you have met the Pres btw as a woman I don’t appreciate the sexist “knickers in a knot” comment 

Administrators please deal with this rubbish - it is the 21st century!

Also, 4.2 million deaths annually from air pollution... which ironically dropped during lockdown for CoVID.

weird world, and even weirder footy forum thread.

So what are your thoughts on 17,500 people dying in New York City alone?

The reason we are nowhere near that is due to the actions that have been taken

Two points,

1. Wasn't aware you were a woman. When I see the name 'Jack Russell', I would and many other would have though that. So I do apologise for that remark.

2. I've seen some of your work. You'll berate anyone that has an opposite opinion, or might have a construction football opinion regarding the board, right down to the playing playing list. And no its not a "worse" comment just because I've met the bloke. The fact you kicked up a big hissy fit over that comment, says more about you.

P.s If you cannot handle some of the constructive debate that goes on in here then it's best you leave, otherwise you're in for world of pain.

I will leave it at that as I do not want this thread derailed any further. Have further concerns, pm me.

I think that they are holding back on our game as they are expecting others to also be postponed during the season. The AFL could then organise a bye/makeup round for all postponed games. 

Have they thought about how this would work if one team is impacted twice (or more)??

So, McKenna now testing NEGATIVE to the virus!!  So, does that mean they stuffed up the original testing, and the game could have (should have) been played after all??!!!!!

Gravity is also a big hoax, designed to stop the people from rising up.

Love your work demonstone. You have similar posting strategy to my my dad joke strategy - fire off as many as possible and by weight of numbers some will hit their target and get a laugh. This one gave me chuckle

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.

    ESSENDONE & DUSTED by George on the Outer

    Essendon was the latest casualty as the Melbourne juggernaut rolled over the Bombers on its way to a 12th win for the 2021 Season.  It was a display of the difference in quality, coaching and system that defines those who will compete in finals and those that lie outside the top eight. Sadly, in these Covid times a mere 19,414 attended the game and the silence outside the ground before the match was eerie.  Normally, thronging crowds lining up at ticket gates and food carts were replaced by

    HOME AWAY FROM HOME by The Oracle

    The Demons return to the MCG on Saturday night (albeit for an away game) for the first time since mid-May when they beat the Blues. At the time, they were riding high, undefeated and celebrated by the football world. In the interim, they lost to two teams that occupy the bottom six, beaten two top four teams in front of empty or near empty stadiums and somehow fallen out of sight in the AFL bubble despite retaining top of the table status. And in a strange twist, the mantle of the league’s
