Depends how you look at at it, hardtack.  Given that it is apparent they won't be playing after August, I would hope that their season will be somewhat shorter than our own.

Not quite how I meant it (figuratively), but yes, I know what you mean.

How will the tribunal phrase Dangerfield's hit so he gets minimum/no weeks?

I find him insufferable but he would hate losing to the Crows.  In the play immediately before the hit, he was well chased down which got him angry and he then buried his frustrations in a deliberate bump as Adelaide ran the ball back.  There was malice.  He should get a week  but expect the marquee player free to play ticket will be handed at.  And Paddy can then tell us all about his happy place and how you can live a simple life on $750k a year.

The amount of times Darcy mentions Toby Green even when he has [censored] all to do with the play borders on fanboying.

Severe impact. Straight to the tribunal to attempt to downgrade the 3 Match suspension. 

Will miss Dees game with the 3 weeks but if successful and is downgraded from severe to high then he’ll miss 2 weeks and be free to play against the Demons. 

Guess what will happen?

Hoping for an old fashioned wet weather slog for the Saints today.

Interesting game coming up here between our next two opponents.

At half time, it would seem both those teams are actually hoping for a massive downpour to cover their inadequacy.

Most of the players seem less interested in that game than Pickett2Jackson is!

'Stalemate', says the commentator... or did he just say 'Stale, mate.'

We have to go into the next couple of rounds looking for kills.

Suns to knock off West Coast in Perth... what a delicious dessert that would be to top off the round.

They did it last year.

If Danger got 3 be good result for us....I am not a Danger fan but I am no sure.....

Looks like he lined him up in slow motion but in normal speed he was charging at him to tackle. Kelly handballs then Danger can’t really avoid contact so he braces/bumps. Big hit. Poor Kelly. 

His Vlastin GF hit looked bad in slow mo also but nothing happened there 

Will be interesting

I don’t think intent is a factor when grading. The Adelaide player was out cold before he hit the ground. I think it will be graded severe so he’ll get 3 games.   

But Dangerfield ...

Watching GWS v Saints. Leon Cameron is a genius. Takes a fair bit of skill to take a Maserati and convert it into a Lada. Even Neeld would have struggled with that.

They do not look dangerous going into forward 50 at all. Our forward connection is A-grade in comparison.

Joe Daniher only fined for his elbow to the head like Richmond’s Astbury. 

So you can throw the Elbow back now with intent and be free to play, although the head is sacrosanct 

AFL Logic at work

They’ll crack down on it in a few weeks especially if a no name Dees player does it.

Hard to understand the MRO rules. Looking at the incident as a footy collision, shoulder on shoulder you would think no suspension. 

but I believe you are suspended based on the outcome in the case of accidental head clash. Therefore he could get anything. I expect 3-4 weeks from the tribunal.

    THE EYE OF THE STORM by Whispering Jack

    When Melbourne monstered Richmond a few weeks back on the MCG thereby registering their sixth win on the trot, the block of games to follow looked highly appealing. After a stirring victory in difficult conditions over the reigning premier, the games to come were against a quartet of low achievers from 2020. North were winless, the Swans were the early high flyers now falling into a slump, Carlton couldn’t take a trick and the Crows had just lost an unloseable game to the Hawks in Launceston. Ev

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs
