NON MFC: Round 09

peptides look like us; get ball, bomb ball, turnover ball, stand still, see ball go whizzing past you at the rate of knots

unlike us they have a litany of injuries to their best 22

The only thing we have to look forward this weekend is potentially watching Essendrug and the filth lose.

Is Dylan Shiel an oompa loompa?

Whorethorn fight back as they usually do....

You know they lost their last 4 in rather pathetic fashion?

Sure, a fightback tonight was good for them, but they're old and experienced and should be contending for top 4, not trying to escape the bottom 4.

I know the history 

They were 5 goals to 0 and then completely obliterated Carlt. not many teams can change gears like that mid game. 
 

Clarkson is still the one to chase....

Thinking the exact same thing, I can't help but feel that the game in hand could end up being both clubs chances to scrape into finals.

Ess and Bris is a waste of time watching but I will have to say that the umpiring is to put it mildly perplexing. In reality it is a disgrace.

Oh well watching the bummers get smashed has cheered me up a little. They lost a lot of %. Ha Ha.

I know we can't really talk but Charlie cameron kicked more goals than the whole essendon team combined. That was Worsfold's lowest score ever in his coaching career.

Puts paid to the hard to come up after such a tough game in the wet/damp theory.

Would like to play Essendon after their Darwin game... Alice perhaps

Very very minimal consolation is that EssUndone got beaten by more than we did, with an even more pathetic score.  
 

Must be grateful for tiny mercies.

Early in the second (I think) Shiel not only gets tackled high, he gets tackled to the ground when not in possession of the ball. The umpire was only 2 metres away right behind the action with perfect view and calls play on. FMD, as much as I loathe the peptides, pathetic umpiring riles me more.

And here's the stat to back up your statement above.... 

Brisbane 22 scoring shots from 37 i50 entries. (60%...must be close to a record) 

Essendon 16 from 42.

I think they've copied our game plan!

Essendon were pathetic but did have a few guns missing from their best 22 as opposed to us who had 0.5 of our best 22 missing (Not sure if VDB is genuine best 22)
 

We need to cop it from the media and own up to it internally. It was a disgraceful performance Vs Port.

peptides are missing a third of their salary cap

hooker, fantasia, stringer, laverde, ambrose, daniher, heppell are all automatic best 22 for them

we have no such excuses

As much as I despise the Peptides, the decisions against them against Brisvegas were mindboggling. I.e. amongst others, the Andrew McGrath holding the ball decision in front of goal, the allowing one player to hand the ball to another from beyond the boundary for a shot at goal (that may have been the worst as it was a disregard of the actual rules of the game) and Shiel being grabbed around the neck clearly during a stoppage. There were several others.

Wouldn't have changed the outcome but the umpiring was clearly advantageous to Brisbane. Probably the worst umpiring for the season and that's saying something.

Having Jones playing is like fielding 17 men and a witches hat. No other team plays a player as slow, plodding, unaccountable and past it as Jones is on a wing or anywhere else. No way in best 22.

How many games in a row did Neeld lose in his first season before his first win?

I don't want to see Nicks cop heat but his team is stuck on the bottom & losing to the team above them by 46 points

All the matches this round so far have been very one sided.

Poor viewing. (Not that I've watched them all.)

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    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. But unli

    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
