DEEDAY: Dockers vs Bulldogs



Recommended Posts

If the Dogs win so be it. We had our chances and dropped   our guard  and in all honesty we don't deserve to be there.

That doesn't mean that l like to see the Dogs in instead of the Dees. The hell with that!     Come on Freo i will be barracking like there is no tomorrow.  

The pressure will be on the Dogs and Freo's team looks good on paper even though Walters is not there. 

However Hogan could be the difference. So go my new team for the day.

Sorry to those posting we don't deserve to be in the finals -  but if Dogs lose today, presumably they don't deserve to be in the finals either.   I wonder how the AFL will manage a final 7.

Walters a huge out, but hopefully the forecast dry conditions suit the Freo marking talls, come on Hoges. As for Dogs tall forwards, Josh Bruce is very hit or miss, which can put too much pressure on Naughton. The Bulldogs midfield is their strength, but Freo’s is running pretty hot lately and can match them. As we are painfully aware, Freo has had recent success on this ground. I’m a bit surprised by Freo odds, 3.25, I’d have thought 2.4 or even less. But then, I’m not a professional. My natural pessimism over-rides all of the above arguments, Dogs to win.

Nope. They got there late yesterday and even had a light training session at Cazaly. 🙃

Could not agree more.
We play 1 decent quarter a game.
Sometimes 2.
That won't cut it in a final.

I drew the Veil of Negativity after the Swans debacle.

Dogs by 30.

Cant see how Freo will kick a big enough score to win, especially with Walters out.

So frustrating we put ourselves in this position. We still remain a mentally soft club.

Heart:  Dockers somehow

Head:  Dogs have too much steel, and a lot to play for

Verdict:  Head comfortably

Consolation:  Trade / Free Agency / Draft 

All too familiar!

Exacctly.

How can we not deserve to be in the 8 if we are in the 8?  If you are in there you are in there.

Melbourne are the only side that fall to pieces when they have a spot in the finals on the line. Saints, who many saw as a bottom 6 side at the start of the year, dug in & demolished the previous gf runner up to sow up their spot. We absolutely [censored] the bed in our 2 games, similar to what happened a few years ago against the pies in the last round. The Dogs will put it all on the line & they will get it done. This week has been a media wanc fest over us keeping the fire burning, having it all to play for blah blah blah. The plot should’ve been focused on how we blew it & the last win against essendon is just rubbing salt in our wounds. stuff you melbourne

I’m not very confident today but I’m more confident than if it was us playing the Bulldogs or even the Dockers for a finals spot. 

Better that we leave it in the hands of a competent coach and playing group that will give it 4 quarters. 

In any event Bulldogs will not drop a game like this.

I know Freo  are big in Westralia but I always considered them a nonentity  club !

Now we find ourselves hanging on their coat tails.

Anyway they are in @Ethan Tremblayterritory so I'll wait on his deeply considered insights and prognostications.

I’m a member of a Dockers WhatsApp group that has heaps of ex-Dockers people in it and they reckon they’re going to win easily. No one talks rubbish in those things so I reckon Fremantle will get the job done. Bulldogs by 37 points.

Pretty sure they were there yesterday. That's how it works for everyone else.

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h
