POSTGAME: Rd 03 vs GWS



Recommended Posts

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 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.

Can't wait to take on the Cats next week. We have them covered. Hope the boys feel the same. A 40-point win in the taking.

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.

    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.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.

    ESSENDONE & DUSTED by George on the Outer

    Essendon was the latest casualty as the Melbourne juggernaut rolled over the Bombers on its way to a 12th win for the 2021 Season.  It was a display of the difference in quality, coaching and system that defines those who will compete in finals and those that lie outside the top eight. Sadly, in these Covid times a mere 19,414 attended the game and the silence outside the ground before the match was eerie.  Normally, thronging crowds lining up at ticket gates and food carts were replaced by
