Because Essendon exists

Loving the impact Chris Scott is having on the tribunal outcomes... "He was protecting himself"  =  3 weeks "I've seen it and I'm OK with it"  =  2 weeks

Entertaining game to watch and I’m sure enjoyable for the players. Reminds me of an all-star game, ball zipping around the G, bruise free footy, good goal-kicking practice.

Neither of these teams play finals this year.

You're wrong

You've just become accustomed to congested garbage (like many others)

What do you want? ... 6 goals vs 5 goals for a whole match with a million stoppages and no ball movement

I'd rather eat a ****t sandwich that watch scramble-ball

I don't how you lot kept watching the boundary hugging negative garbage that was served up for 5+ years.

Scramble ball with a million stoppages.

Ugh

Anti-football and you kept watching?  Easily pleased or just plain addicted

These threads on the other games are getting a stack more traffic than in previous years.  Usually full of people moaning incessantly about umpiring decisions

And it's not about the extra goals either ... attacking footy slam dunks congested boundary hugging rubbish every day of the week

Enjoy!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say.

A little more pressure for mine.

I’m glad you’re enjoying the game Macca.

Agree with this. Enjoyable game to watch, but both these clubs have significant issues and I don't have either in my top 8.

If you don't like it turn it off then (I'll bet you don't!)

As previously stated,  you've become accustomed to congested footy so much that now you miss it. 

We humans are like that!  We are creatures of habit

And it is not bruise-free either ... fast attacking footy was the norm for decades and it was never classed as bruise-free in that time.  

You play in front of your man in a game like this and you can still get thumped in the back of the head (repeatedly)

No room for the faint-hearted out there even though the congested garbage is at a minimum

Also Collingwood surely have someone else they could try at FF ahead of Cox! How he keeps getting a game is unbelievable.

And where's all the kicking backwards and time wasting tactics? Another blight on the sport that might be a thing of the past

Anti-football and bloody boring

No fights in the crowd either is my guess ... the eyes are glued to the actual game

One simple man on the mark rule changes things for the better ... who would have thought?

Teams are compelled to attack otherwise they lose

Relax Macca. I’m not having a pop at you. Each to their own.

That first half had a training drill vibe to it. You won’t see that in finals.

Enjoy the rest of the game.

I totally disagree though 'Betters' ... I did not see it (the first half) as a training drill in any way shape or form

I see the game tonight as a return to the way footy was once played

You are half right though ... I am still fuming and angry about the dross that has been served up in the last 5 years or so. 

You watch the ratings and crowds soar if we keep seeing footy like we're seeing tonight.  Covid got the viewers back but ultimately the game needs to entertain the masses

The Pies have enough talented players to feature in the finals ... they're not a flag threat but they've got about the same chance of playing finals as what we have

One could argue that they have a better forward line and we break even in the midfield.  We might have a better backline

Carlton lack composure & poise ... 8-9 wins max

Hearing the commentators raving about Darcy Moore being the best defender in the AFL as Mckay kicks his 4th on him a minute later.

Steven May is the best defender in the league you cretins.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
