He's really got the yips. He's Ian Baker-Fritsch.

I'd give Mitch Brown another contract in a heartbeat if I had to make the decision. Surprisingly intelligent footballer.

I am so happy with what Petracca has become.

Not many game day threads when you can say the AFL would actually want us to win. 
 

Given what’s on the line today given that Essendon have hardly won a game for months my MFCSS tells me Stringer, Daniher and Tippa will all have massive games we don’t turn up and lose easily.

Heading in again today... I am almost a bit relieved we don't have to play the chase % game today I think that would be way too stressful. 

Hopefully it's a good outing and the Freo result falls our way tomorrow

What’s Josh got in the smoker?

What have the Dees players and coaches got left to deliver this season?

What will it matter by the end of the round?

Chicken thigh brined in pickled jalapeano juice. Half smoked and finished on the BBQ skewered with red onion and capsicum. 

 

Just finished 12 straight, 2 days off then back for 12 so going to relax with a cigar and watch the footy. Can't wait.

We better not screw this up.

Docker a big chance to knock off the Dogs.

Saints winning was the best outcome for us IMO.

It removed the issue of sweating the %  - did we kick enough goal?., avoids the 2017 heartache., etc

Simple -  Dees win and dockers win, both by a point, and finals are reality.

GWS have imploded and the Dockers winning was always going to be a better option for success.

I agree with Ethan - the bombers have been "useless" of late. However, long term and long suffering MFC supporters will recognise the inherent dangers ( and frequently subsequent sadness) when our club goes into such games.

Having said that, I reckon we'll beat the Bumbers. In fact, we simply must win for reasons of self respect and salvaging something out of a season riddled with lost opportunity.

Unfortunately, I cannot accept the dream that Freo will beat the Dogs.

Let's enjoy our last game for the year and get well and truly [censored]!

Sounds bloody sensational Josh - photo's out of the smoker please :)

sounds awesome. 

Is the jalapeno juice vinegar and if so do you just buy the pickled jalapeno in jars (i go through about a jar a month) and use its vinegar?

A friend of mine has a youtube channel called Schuey's BBQ if you're interested Josh. He was the brains behind a show called Dippers BBQ Wars that aired on channel 7 for one season. I've added a link below. Enjoy your 2 days off.

I woke up with a sinking feeling today. I feel like we'll still win but it won't be pretty and the dogs will get the job done tomorrow. I've since had my first strong coffee of the day and don't feel quite so bad.

I don’t like where today’s heading if we have to rely on Baker and a couple of defenders to kick half our goals.

Need the likes of Weid, Fritsch and Brown to pick up the slack a bit here.

Yes having forwards who kick goals would be a hell of a good start.

That's the one. Any sort of juice will work though.

There had better be Bbo after the chairman shot off his mouth about it a few weeks ago. Anything less is a cop out. 

Interesting times ahead od ?

Or a whitewash?

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
