Special shout out to Langdon for attempting not 1 but 2 handball receives from out of bounds on the wing.

Thoroughly entertaining, haven’t laughed that heartily on a football related action in a long time. Loving him in the side.

A couple of things of note there.

He's definitely going with the new AFL commentary buzz phrase 'creating width'.

...and we've been crying out for a good outside mid, and you couldn't get any more outside than that.

On a more serious note, I love what he brings...

The kid just doesn't stop running and you can see he enjoys his footy.

Ok, we can twist any number, lets talk percentage of centre bounce attendance not numbers.  So you start with 4 then an additional centre bounce for every goal.  I reckon the amount of goals kicked over the last 3 weeks will be higher than rounds 1 to 9

Fair point.

Nice little read on the game.

MELBOURNE V COLLINGWOOD – THE BIG MONGREL QUESTIONS 

 

Don't totally agree with it all and the writer seems to think Tomlinson is playing on a wing or at half back, but interesting and well written insight nevertheless. Spot on about Clarry. Glad there's a bit of respect there for him. And telling, the regard for AVB too.

Tom Sparrow, Melbourne, has been charged with Engaging in Rough Conduct against Darcy Cameron, Collingwood, during the second quarter of the Round 12 match between Melbourne and Collingwood, played at the Gabba on Saturday August 15.
In summary he can accept a $1500 sanction with an early plea.

Charlie Spargo, Melbourne, has been charged with Rough Conduct (Dangerous Tackle) against John Noble, Collingwood, during the third quarter of the Round 12 match between Melbourne and Collingwood, played at the Gabba on Saturday August 15.
In summary he can accept a $1000 sanction with an early plea.

As in a game a few weeks ago it seems it is our guys who are getting fines and not the other team.  Takes two to tango, Mr MRO

But I do like their feistiness!

Did anyone see either of these occur?

I feel like sometimes these just come up out of nowhere.

I wish they would time stamp the incidents so you could go and look them up. 
I remember seeing one tackle in the game that could have been dangerous as I remember wondering if it was going to be a free kick. It wasn't but I cant remember who the tackler was, maybe it was Spargo

Yes, or even better provide a clip of the incident.

I'd like to know if there was a free kick paid for Spargo's Dangerous Tackle. If it wasn't paid/deemed dangerous on the night, not sure how it can be deemed dangerous two days later.

Because umpires miss things all the time, like striking off the ball - they still get reprimanded after the fact when the games reviewed

Just finished watching the replay.

Honestly, that was one of the better games I've seen Nathan Jones play since the Swans game last year where he snagged three. He only had the 16 touches on Saturday, but its great to see him back and contributing to the side. Not sure whether he goes on and plays in 2021 yet, but you can't deny he's playing his role quite nicely at the moment.

Also, this play was vintage Jones.

Coaches votes are in:

Ed Langdon (MELB)
Clayton Oliver (MELB)
Angus Brayshaw (MELB)
Christian Petracca (MELB)
3  Steele Sidebottom (COLL)
3 Taylor Adams (COLL)
2 Charlie Spargo (MELB)
 
WOW.  Big difference in view of the coaches!  Best guess split:
5/1, 5/1, 4/2 for either Langdon/Oliver/Brayshaw
4 for Petracca
3 for Sidebottom
3 for Adams
2 for Spargo
Langdon, Oliver and Brayshaw the only ones to get votes from both coaches.  But coaches had a very different view on who was best or second best on the ground.  Or 3rd best or 4th best or 5th best...
 
Rapt for Langdon and Spargo to be among the votes.
 
Petracca goes out to a clear second on the leaderboard with a game less.
75  Lachie Neale BL
54 Christian Petracca MELB
47 Travis Boak PORT
44 Taylor Adams COLL
44 Jack Steele

...also on the leaderboard is:

11th Oliver

16th Viney

17th Brayshaw

Quite amazing to have our 3 or our 4 midfielders in the top 20.  And Max would be around 25-30 but he has missed a few games.

Edit:  17th is Andrew Brayshaw

Interesting stat -

our bottom 5 disposal players (tmac, sparrow, weid, spargo, kozzie) each only got 8 or less disposals

but

all forwards, all kicked goals for a combined total of 8 goals being 50% of all our goals and 2 more than the whole filth team

not bad for bottom 5

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
