Hunt and Langdon were excellent tonight.

There was one moment where Hunt got it at half back and handballed to Langdon on the wing, then both of them sprinted down the wing together with their hair blowing back. If someone could dig out a screenshot of that, that'd be great, I need a new avatar. Think TMac has had his time :-)

3-0 and a lot of positives again.

Viney and Angus got plenty of the footy and more miles in their legs.  Pickett awesome.  LJ with more improvement,.

Too bad we let Toby greene get off the chain for 5 goals but hes a very good player

It was a good win, P2J, but we should have creamed them. As for Greene, he was fortunate up forward as our backs were a little down, I thought. I think we got the shivers and hesitations from the bashings we were experiencing without umpire scrutiny and it needed their attention, not blindness. How Gawn and Oliver put up with it each week is astounding. The AFL does not do positive things when such are needed. LJ did continue to improve and he is becoming a good ruck, who lands on his feet, ready to move and shield. Nice to be 3-0. Gus is getting his game back - see ball/get ball/deliver ball - Viney was physically valuable in tonight's game and not too wasteful with his endeavours.

Solid start boys, Cats are gettable next week for a 4-0 start, bring it on.

No dangerfield and no rohan. One more day for recovery. Some things in our favour.

I am hoping they just beat the hawks (so they are not on the rebound) in a super physical game.

I know many won’t agree but they shouldn’t be singing the song tonight. Stand in the circle, speak some truths and move on. 

Always a TROLL!!!

Tmac was back to his 2020 form tonight  unfortunately

I love that we're winning. Let's keep some perspective though: look at the ladder and see where the three teams we have beaten are.

This isn't meant to be a 'downer' post, just a plea to stay calm and take each game as it comes. History is also full of March to July champions who fall apart when it counts. 

Because of the expectation that Brown and Weidemann are on the way, I remain cautiously optimistic. The guts of a good side is certainly there.

Agree, we cannot carry him awaiting another good game. Petty time, for mine.

Yep, it was a real pity. He was awful. Makes the choice easy when B.Brown is ready. I miss 2018 model TMac, but I'm just about ready to let it go now.

It was great until one of the butchered the kick.

Strange though because he was excellent in the first two rounds.

I'm not a fan of his body language at times.

The good thing about still shots is that bit gets left out of the story!

I'm pretty sure it was Langdon who butchered it, but never mind.

Mate it’s round 3. Teams that have lost at least one game tend to be towards the bottom of the ladder. Saints will play finals for sure

My favourite moment also. 

To those who want to 'temper' celebrations and not get over-excited: You do you. I've spent enough weeks in past years being miserable only a few weeks into the season, I'm bloody well gonna enjoy the wins.

Tactically we were very sound after Q time. We weathered the storm of 4 goals straight. 

we set up so well behind the ball, the giants could only score on the counter or from blatant errors. Well done to Goody. We have an easy to recognise game plan for once.

Where are all the trade Fritta knockers?

Thought so, kicked well tonight and it’s all gone quiet.

Also glad that Spargo’s grab at his leg didn’t come to anything. Loving the small fwd mix of Spargo, ANB and Kossie at the moment

Lucky the Giants were unlucky with injuries. Giants wanted it more and its good to get a win we shouldn't have gotten. 

Ridiculous comment ...you play who is out there ...they kicked some “arsey” goals & if we had kicked some extremely “gettable” goals in the first qrt ...we would have been well in control before their injuries hit.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
