POSTGAME: Rd 02 vs St. Kilda



Recommended Posts

I also thought Spargos fwd pressure was very very good.

Anb was solid as well.

A more even team performance except for starring roles from Oliver and Kozzie and Trac.

I'd just like to endorse all the other posters in their praise for Goodwin outcoaching Ratten.

Honestly we arrested some serious momentum and changed the game. I can’t remember when we last did that and went on to win. We have some talent on the list. If we manage it well we are going plac

Well I thought we would be out paced and out coached.

I am glad to admit I was wrong. 

Well done ___. 

“Well done Simon Goodwin and coaching team”.

Fantastic performance! Got challanged but rose to the occasion. 

Don't underestimate this win in such a big occasion like it was for St Kilda.

Absolutely stoked with that performance.

We shut down everything the Saints wanted. Massive tick for Goodwin.

Basic skill errors stopped that being a 50 point win. That’s our next step. 
 

I was really worried early, after last week and the way we were kicking early I thought they’d carve us up. 
 

But Jackson into the ruck seemed to be a circuit breaker, then when Gawn went back in we continued the dominance. 
 

Kozzie lit it up, he’s special. 
 

Batman and Robin were outstanding in the guts. Saints must love watching Petracca smash em. 
 

I can’t remember Salem playing with that much energy. 
 

Liked Jordon and Sparrow’s games. 
 

Get in!

Defence outstanding as a group. Tomlinson and Salem the cream tonight IMO.  Last week it was May and Lever. Becoming the envy of the AFL.  You can build a Flag around a great back half.

Best game I've seen in a long time from the Dees. To be challenged in the second quarter... and the response was very pleasing.

best game I've seen from ANB as well

Keep it up Dees

Tomlinson was fantastic tonight

I canned him in the game day thread for that deliberate out of bounds goal early in the second , but he definitely was very solid down back and providing rebound out of D50. 
Collectively take out those ordinary marking mistakes by our defenders and a couple of dubious early frees the saints barely had any genuine goals scoring opportunities

Lols, listen pal there was an article on this very (illustrious and 100% honest) website that stated the fine folk of Demonland has taken over the reigns of the whole club. Goody shoomody.

Viney looks slow to me.

Can he pick it up?

Great to see the much maligned ANB do well tonight.

Tomlinson's best game ever.

Are we allowed to fine forwards for missing easy goals (Fritta)?

Spargo makes goals happen even if he doesn't hit the scoreboard.

The Saints could honour Frawley by changing their name to the St Kilda Spuds once a year for Spud’s Game. 

I think a permanent change would be fitting Ethan!

Saints look tired.. might have struggled from the bog last week..

GWS are favourites next week.. why??

And one less day's recovery.

The rain and the extra day were key reasons I tipped us.

That and I'm a happy clapper.

I finally watched Rami Malek's Oscar-winning portrayal of Freddie Mercury last night and now it's just a big mental jumble when Jake Lever goes to fist the ball away.

Well a big improvement on last week, still plenty to work on but we again beat a team who we needed to if we are to make finals. I am not really a fan of ANB, Tomlinson and particularly Goodwin but they all had good nights. 
 

And I can’t believe there are so many people who think Oliver would be easily replaced, the guys a freak and still has improvement to come.

Rapt with the win, but just as happy that there was some innovation from Goody. The defensive flooding wasn't helping us in the second quarter and previously Goody would have stuck with it, but he moved things around, got more guys forward and put Jacko in the ruck and it totally shifted the momentum.

Credit to him.

I can't believe the love for Cooper's Pale Ale. Should be drinking Cooper's Stout after a win like this.

    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.

    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

    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
