We have had so many line in the sand games in the last few years that they start to blur into one another.

But that does not change the fact this yet another one. 

And perhaps unlike other since Goody came on board more is on the line for the team and in particular him than any other game.

The Chariman has made it publicly clear making finals is the minimum expectation from the board. Our good run with injury takes any excuse of the table. The COVID situation is one all clubs have to deal with so that's off the table too.

Lose this game and finals are close to impossible.

Lose and goody's future comes into sharp focus.

Lose and there will be a tsunami of fugazi, to stretch the Japanese imagery as the media will be all over goody's future.

A coach who is clueless on game day will never get this club a Premiership. Goodwin is holding the list back and needs to go ASAP.

I think

v Collingwood in the last round of 2017 - fail

v West Coast 2018 R22 in Perth - pass

v St.Kilda in this round ...

“Bayley Fritsch was late to the captain’s run and is going to be dropped this week. He didn’t break COVID rules and Melbourne is stressing that.

“How does that happen in the hub? They’re in Maroochydore, he’s not on the bus so you’d think he’d be noticed.

“That is a tough, tough line to take. Bayley Fritsch is out of the Melbourne game due to tardiness and won’t play (on Saturday).”

Not sure who is the dumbest but as a club we are dumb !!!

Geez, that's unbelievable. All the players are literally in the same hotel. How does this even happen?

My thoughts exactly ?‍♀️ 

2020 can get [censored]. Playing twice on my birthday week so twice as many chances to ruin what is already a sad lockdown occasion.

So, at the moment, we have Sparrow, McDonald, Harmes and Fritsch all out.  

Does this mean Preuss keeps his spot?  Not sure how I feel about playing him and Gawn in the same side.  Not convinced it will work.

I'm not convinced either! So only Gawn and Jones are confirmed ins, I think they'll bring in either Hunt or Baker for speed, so the other in will be interesting, Rivers maybe?

Preuss as a forward will offer more than what tmac has

The only thing that will hurt us is that Preuss really doesn't seem to have any idea how to play forward.

Tom at least knew what he was doing, and he has the ability to get up the ground and get out of Weideman's way.  Preuss doesn't have the athleticism to do this, and I can see him staying too close to goal and having a negative impact on Weid and his contribution to the game, or we ask Weideman to push up the ground more, which would be a mistake.

Wow!  Goody isn't messing around.    Absolutely love to see that.  We will miss Fritta though.

Great to see T Mac and Harmes dropped.

Tough on Fritta, bold move from the club in a must-win game.

Disappointing I won't be able to spam my mates with Bayley Fritzl propaganda

Pretty ordinary propaganda, mate.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
