NON MFC: Rd 02 2021



Recommended Posts

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)

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.

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.

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

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
