It was a serious street fight Players, Officias and Police 

I remember watching it on TV

What I find interesting about this particular clip is not that Lloyd squibs, but that big tough man Wallis seems to break a nail and is pretty upset about it.

A pity that football club isn't defunct. 

Well I remember sitting at the MCG final where Essendon just thugged Fitzroy players. Quinlan, Sidebottom , Wilson,, didn't matter who they were they just attacked the player until they hold few left to actually contest. They couldn't catch one player whose name escapes me now. But it was the most disappointing game I ever saw no football just violence.

Not so fast SWYL.

Lets knock them out in Week 1 of the finals.

An earlier poster here talked about Ox's physical trials and addisiction which he overcame to become an advoctae for the issue. Thats courage.

Hardwick and Lynch? Hitting blokes in the back of the head or guts when unprepared - weak.

Based on the Tige's President Peggie Lynnch's comment on the ABC this week, I suspect their Board isn't impressed.

Fingers crossed. Mathematically though, they can still pinch 9th spot

This topic is getting a good siting on here, no doubt because if the Ox.

but is it being raised on any of the other clubs web sites, if it was getting as much exposure on the others then Hardwick may well regret making any comment. And Lynch might cop a bit of attention from players and umpires.

I have always despised those who may lack a bit of talent so instead of working hard they "go the knuckle".  

Hardwick was a thug as a footballer, he was one of the few players I could not watch. But like many blokes who were thug players, he seems decent enough once off the field, and I have admired him as a coach - until now. A part of his true nature has emerged and there is clearly an ugly, bitter, nasty part of his baseline personality. 

I am usually fairly indifferent to Richmond, but I am hungry to see them do one of two things: finish 9th again, or go out backwards with 2 huge losses in the finals.

Very very stupid move by Hardwick to dredge up the 2000 Grand Final; illustrating the gutless violence that Essendon served up that day.

I always remember that photo of michael long in the paper after he smashed troy simmons.

I said to my friend, long looks like he was possessed, or on something.

The Monday after the GF, the toilet paper ( herald sun) had it in full colour, it was sicking to say the least.

Dimma would have a field day with me.

I almost tear up after every Dees win these days?

The hypocrisy is Dimma has cried in public a ton of times.

When Ox is coming across as the grown up in the room you know you've lowered your colours I reckon.

Barracking for a scrappy 35 - 35 draw between Dons and Tiges now, with half of the tigers players reported and suspended for 2+ weeks. Lynch to miss a shot after the siren to win the game. 

I also would like us to face them first/second week of finals and knock them out. 

Jeez him bringing the GF has definitely brought out some feelings I repressed!

Long has done some good stuff since but still have a query next to his name.

Can we please stop calling him some jovial nickname, his name is Damian and he’s a f log of the highest order.

Trying to tear someone down because they expressed an opinion and doing so because that person showed emotion in a stressful scenario after years of inner turmoil because of his knees. 90% of coaches/clubs would be on the front foot saying Lynch’s actions are not on.... not the Tigers.

Mick Condon was the one they couldn't catch.

So .... I've been to the video tape.
Schwarz went off about the 20min mark with the blood rule after being popped on the beak by Wallace.
Got abit of a mouthful from Hardwick on the way off.
Is that what Hardwick calls crying?

Dimma is a goose.  He is an angry little twerp.  He has needed some pretty high quality people around him to keep him in check, but you can’t hide your basic nature for ever.

Suggesting you like your key forward to ‘push the line’ is stupid.  Have you ever seen a team throw their arms in the air for frees as badly as the Tigers forward line?  (Except Geelong) . Riewoldt looks like he’s going to cry every time he misses out on a free.  This now invites defences to really go after these nufties.  Hard-wit is also essentially baiting the umpires.

Should be some defences that take the invitation to play these fecal stains at their own game....

Dimma's old teammate, the original Dive Bomber Lloyd, set a standard that has yet to be equalled IMO.

I looked as well. Schwarta went off for the blood rule, kicking and screaming not crying. Hardwick gave and received a mouthful.

So Lynch punches his opponent in the stomach off the ball, allowing him to break on to the lead, mark and goal. He cops two cheap fines.  Max gets assaulted off the ball. 

When are the AFL going to get real?  This is blatant cheating - stopping a player fairly getting to the contest.  It can change matches and all they do is hand down a piddling fine?

It brings the game into disrepute.

Lynch should have been suspended for that incident. Weather we are serious about violence behind play or we are not. The AFL needs to get serious about this...

esse acted like thugs that day, but being at the ground, it was clear that it was schwarz opportunity to fly the flag for some of the young blokes but he didn't and the physical response from the senior players was meek. its a gf and if big blokes are repeatedly beating up on you you need your big blokes to respond with force

    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
