Biggest worry is the Tigers look very menacing, have a few days extra rest on us and we have no Fritta or May. Let's get over the Hawks first then start crapping ourselves to face Tigers with 3 less days rest. Good luck to us.

Yes, putting that one down as an opportunity for plenty of "learnings". If we lose by less than 5 goals we'll have done well.

Langdon would not have dropped that mark. 

And if he had, he would've followed it up with a chase and dive on Marlion Pickett. Appalling body language and defeated expression on Hill as he just gave up and watched Pickett kick it.

Can't believe how overweight he looks too. Not like a Byron Pickett  lump of muscle mass, but in a soft pudgey way.

Got his big pay day and has cashed in and doesn't look like he wants to put in the hard yards.

Boy was i wrong on the Hill over Langdon trade.

 

Unless he can redeem himself, you'd want to move him on and free up some space to pip Essendon and lure in Josh Dunkley. Their midfield needs bigger bodied elite mids. They're a bit like Essendon of 2018-2020

The defeatest carp going on in this thread is deplorable. What relevance the Saints being shocking has to a game Melbourne plays NEXT WEEK I've no idea.

It's the MFCSS. It's deeply embedded in our DNA / psyche.

I reckon BB will play on Anzac eve which will give us a lift and our pressure game has been top notch. It'll be a battle against Richmond and a 50/50 call i reckon. No need to be fearful at all.

Gotta focus on the Hawks game first mind.

That’ll fix everything. 

Makes for some pretty good reading though.

I get a sick and twisted kick out of reading opposition supporters who have been flogged.

Mainly because I know what they are going through.

If Andy did that for Demonland - he would save some money on the server rental...

Saints 2020 was our 2018 but worse

Other than King they don't seem to have much coming through

Could be nasty if they do a North

25 and unders are okay - billings, marshall, steele, howard, butler, gresham, clark, coffield, bytel, king all should be good long-term afl players

but they're all a bit...vanilla, maybe?

100% agree, although David King reckons the Saints have more “weapons” than Melbourne this year ?

Unless BB plays a full game this weekend and does not look weary in the last quarter I cannot see it. I would also be afraid of a major forward change in a game against this year's Grand finalist.

They are like watching paint dry.   Hopefully they dont get near finals.

Great post Chook.

The Saints are fair dinkum pretenders regarding pressure when compared to MFC, tiges, Port Adelaide and Dogs.

The stats for last night are deplorable saints-wise as if the white flag was raised at 1/4 time. Dusty with 10 disposlas in final 1/4 supports this view.

32,056 there 

Bit low, but maybe 30k is the new 40k?

It was Docklands with a 100% capacity of just on 50k so 75% = around 38k of which Medallion club takes out a fair amount.

I suspect a practical sell out would be around 35k

It's a big issue for us next week if we can't get the Tiger supporters along as they are the paying supporters.

Is Dean Kent not being selected? Thought he must be injured but he ain’t on the injury list. Not sure he would have helped, just keen to know.

not injured, just not getting selected. He wouldn't be getting a look in for our 22 either

Ratten is a great assistant coach.  I think he will regret taking the Saints job.

But a lot on here see him as some sort of deity and a far better coach than Goody.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
