NON MFC: Rd 02 2021



Recommended Posts

Earlier in the match a Jee-long player was tackled ... not 360 degrees, but round twice so it was 720 degrees. Play on ....

So if Brisbane had have played like a 'Supposed' top 4 team there is no way they would have trailed by 3 or 4 goals for most of the game

Therefore, they wouldn't have been playing catch up and are probably in front by a winning margin close to siren time in the last quarter

The Cats weren't much better but they really didn't have a lot of opposition in the first half

The above describes how the game was won and lost in a general sense

I haven't seen one person here praise the Lions first half but plenty of lambasted their efforts

Control what you can control otherwise you're asking for trouble

Neither team are a flag threat and if we can't beat both sides we're not much chop either

I can't stand Geelong. 

I hope they don't get near it this year. Their players are getting on and if this year they can't make it to the GF they'll be in some trouble. 

Anyways, what was most painful to watch was Smith gliding up and down the wing and then of course the sealer. 

I could just picture him doing that for us...

The joys of supporting the Dees hey :)

Bingers, you’ve got it half right -you are right about the 720 degrees but THEN  he handed - not hand balled- the ball to Selwood: goal.

Quite right. I forgot about that. Who was it? Guthrie?

Plan what Wyl?

We get told what to do because we're an insignificant club in the eyes of the AFL

1 finals appearance in 14 years with a mostly chequered history prior to that isn't going to win any favours

The club only has itself to blame whilst us downtrodden and success-starved members & supporters have to cop it in the eye (we're mere spectators when you boil it all down)

But the natives are restless this time around ... if we don't perform there will be major changes in my view.  The patience is running thin

We need to turn up every week with no exceptions ... do that and the wheel will turn from the AFL's point of view (albeit slowly)

AFL has conceded it should have been a free to Bailey in the goal square.

Hope karma comes back and bites Geelong in the backside.

The AFL have a two way connection with the Umpires. That decision needed rectification. The AFL is responsible for not implementing this change in an UNMITIGATED DISASTER that could change the season.

As for the decision not being clear to UMPIRES that were very very close, those two collectively should not umpire again, along with the appropriate suspension of payments,  until they improve to the extent where they receive from an unbiased group of neutral officials that they can carry out their duties effectively.

What an absolute joke. 3 umpires out there and nobody saw it? The most blatant HTB of all time. 
even the dog in the ARC would have called that free

Jeelong have been cheating down there for years, if you are happy to concede that, i can’t help you. 
Brisvegas were robbed last night blatantly in front of the Umpires and nothing was done. 
Even the AFL have said so today

Result should be reversed

What if Bailey then missed the goal? Anyone's crystal ball able to see if he got it or not?

 

Lousy umpiring game after game week in week out. One bad decision should not be the catalyst for reform, but if that's what it takes, great.

 

Meanwhile Geel & Bris can both rot. GO DEMONS!!

You're dreaming again Wyl (like I've always said, it's ok to dream but it's not ok to be a dreamer)

And I'm not conceding anything ... perhaps I just have a different outlook than those baying for blood over a few questionable decisions.

And perhaps you could stand apart from the mob occasionally instead of taking the safe option of going along with the crowd (I won't hold my breath)

I'm also a big picture person ... we will be sent down to Geelong as long as we're viewed as an insignificant club

And Brisbane robbed themselves by not turning up in the first half ... one could argue that the pretender Lions got what they deserved (they certainly didn't deserve to win)

You're letting your anti Geelong bias get in the way of an intelligent discussion.

SWYL .... you are one of my favourite posters.

But I presume you're kidding about wanting the result to be reversed.

Gulden looks a real player for the swans.  Another academy pick.

And don’t forget Braeden Campbell, just about best on today, and another straight out of the academy.

What are you talking about Macca?

With 20 Seconds to go it was 2 points the difference, that is reality, not Mob Rule

In the Goalsquare there were 2 BLATANT decisions against Jeelong

1. Holding the Ball

2. Incorrect Disposal 

Neither were paid, and it cost a team the game. 
Disgraceful. 
What Brisvegas did or didn’t do in the first half is completely irrelevant

Too gutless to pay the free to Brisbane in front of their goals whilst playing Geelong in Geelong in the dying minutes. There’s no other explanation. 

They did the same back in r23 of what I think was 2014 or 15 when Bris needed a win to make the 8 v geel. Dying seconds, ball in dispute... Chapman dives onto it and the ump calls a ball up instantly. 

Edit: 2013. @7m20s

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.
