I'd have to say that Spargo doing a Selwood to Selwood is one of the best things I'll see in my lifetime. Hate that guy with a passion.

Nah. There are shinier things to occupy the media. Sydneys new kids on the block, the doggies silky midfield, Ports over-powering of the tiges, the saints come from the clouds win (remember all the ex

I’d like us to start repaying 187 today, with interest... and venom.

We didn't panic when may went off. Tomlinson just went to Hawkins. Hopefully he doesn't get off the leash. 

But we are going well. Live tracks game & Oliver just needs to take the first option

Yes they made a quick diagnosis so it’s not concussion or something they can stitch up.

One of the most disgraceful umpiring performances ive seen in that 5 minute period in the 2nd.  We should have been running it up the field for a shot at goal instead he calls holding the man when it should've clearly been holding the ball. 

Two holding the balls that were 50/50 against us in our forward line against Frittata & Sparrow yet the Cats don't get called for similar and then get a reverse call instead.  Faaark off Umps!

Crush them in the 2nd half and for good measure someone please knock out cheat Selwood and fat Hawkins

Someone needs to get Flabber to learn to control his joints. His elbows seem to have a mind of their own.

My fingers are like icicles, so not going to try and navigate my way back through thread. 

Can someone with benefit of replays tell me what happened to May? His contest with Hawkins was right in front of me, but it looked pretty innocuous until he didn't get up

I’ve only seen drips and drabs but despite inaccurate in front of goal best footy we have played all year?

I'd say yes. It's blowing a gale and slippery and we're burying them. I think the inaccuracy in front of goal is forgivable under the conditions too.

We are [censored] if May has broken his eye socket.  Majak Daw might get a gig.

He broke something....that is for sure.

That last tackle on Isaac Smith in our goal square, a case in point. No prior but he was also making no attempt to release the ball and we know why. That is often a free.

He got an elbow to the face from Hawkins at full force as Hawkins tried to get the ball away. Think it was just an accident, but given the injury you could argue it was reckless. He looked a mess.

Geelong's game plan is quite obvious. Cheat at all opportunities. The most penalised team in the comp, and the umps have paid so many free kicks against them they've almost given up.

They're bringing the game into disrepute.

I said this during the week, they clearly train to take advantage of umpiring and rules that can be manipulated

Loving our coaches thinking ahead. Hunt has been going to Smith when Smith rolls forward and has kept him quiet. Hunt has been exceptional, not necessarily stat wise but watching behind the play his work rate is unbelievable. 

We should be further in front, the lowering of the eyes and seeking the best option is impressive so far. Just bury them in the third.

Slow mo looks like his forearm smacked his face in the tackle as he was trying to get rid of the ball. Maybe accidental, but gees Hawkins has form. 
May looked horrible going off. Hopefully it’s not a break.

Thanks for that. Fingers crossed May is ok. Hawkins has form with 'accidental' elbows, so I'd definitely be on reckless side of fence

    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
