I am still hoping for a Power v Lions GF. Could relax and watch the game without giving a damn. 

The Arc. Wow, how embarrassing for the AFL. Vlastuin clearly missed the ball, you could see daylight between his fist and the ball. Arc too scared to overrule.  Whately will go nuts.

Wow in what way ?

Just surprised. Could be the last final of his career. I’ve been there for my kids births and I didn’t do much. I’d hope my wife would understand and be ok for me to play

There is no way I’d have missed the birth of either of my children. 
 

it’s just football.

You weren’t there to do anything other than to ‘be’ there (not just for the child).

He slung him from around the neck...that's where the damage was done.

He also landed awkwardly because of the slinging motion of the tackle...

I hear ya, it was a bad tackle. But by the rules the mro uses, there is zero chance of a suspension

Could not believe the pro St Kilda dribble rushing out of McAvaneys mouth tonight. Honestly, they were close to rubbish tonight. They have a lot of of very ordinary footballers. Max King.....couldn’t kick a goal if his life depended on it. Hannebery, too old and slow. Howard, there is a reason Port let him walk. Hill, rabbit in the headlights. Jones, may have a little bit more pace than his big brother but nowhere near the ability. Kent, well do I even need to say anything? Lonie, did he even touch the footy? This team fell into the finals because they belted up a few easy victims early in the year, then got the Dogs who were abysmal last week. If we don’t go past them next year I will be mightily [censored].

Bruce was horrendous, as is the norm these days. How was the passage where Max King got the ball in the last quarter, ran straight into the tackle and Bruce shot his load because he liked what he saw. The guy was pinged for holding the ball. It was rubbish. I remember him doing the same for a young Hawthorn player that took on a Melbourne player in the 2018 final and got caught holding the ball, but his focus was on how good the hawks kid was for trying to take on the tackle. He has lost the plot.

Yes. Conor Nash I believe it was. Played 2 games this year. A very dangerous game predicting that a team will continue their success the next year. Look at us 2019. People say the Saints recruited well this year. Well, how did that pan out tonight.

Yes, but his wife is big on instagram. If anything, should have been reversed.

What has happened to Billings? So much talent. Thought he broke out a couple of years back. Poor tonight and an average season

looks extremely soft and seems injury riddled. He looked pretty pacey as a draftee but looked very slow tonight. Not quite sure what exactly has happened but looks quite sad to see

See Tom Lynch just did his subtle dig the knee into the neck there. 

The bloke is a gutless bustard. I hope Mitch Robinson gets to nail him as he promised.

Lol. Yep
First kid I could understand. But third?

anyway his choice. Just surprised. 

Its just as much about supporting a partner through a major medical operation that carries with it very real risks of complication, as it is about simply meeting your 3rd kid.

Yeah I know it’s about support, I’m not a complete A hole :-). But if her mum for example could be there, then is it still worth missing potentially the highlight of your career? Speaking hypothetically now. 

what if it was a grand final?

The original idea of the video review was for obvious/clear mistakes. Umpires call was the correct call by ARC

Looked quite clear to me and the commentators.

How long will Cotchin not get? 
 

 

Bad tackle, should have been a 50 but I don’t see any justification for getting a week. He had his neck but let go so didn’t sling him all the way to the ground.

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f
