Carlton and Essendon getting pummelled in unison,  be still my beating heart.

If the AFL is serious about gambling abuse they should look at the hideous amount of gambling advertisements everywhere across all platforms they control.

Is Brett Ratten the right guy?

Well that last few minutes of Q3 with Collingwood conceding 3 goals in as many minutes was reminiscent of the Melbourne of old. 
Another nail in Buckley’s coffin?

Wow that was some quarter. 5 goals to 2 behinds. Dom Sheed just went nuts. 

I know he is exciting but do the commentators sometimes go a bit over the top with Nic Nat. I mean Grundy tapped it straight to Nic who ran and bounced it and JB went wild like he did something spectacular.

He ran! And bounced it! And it NEARLY came back to him!!

The frothing over him is extraordinary - good tap ruckman and wins some exciting clearances once or twice a game...but that’s all

He was robbed of his best years with knee knacks - I expect if he hadn’t been so he would’ve developed into a lot more of a threat around the ground

They get paid for talking a whole lotta gobbledygook.  BT doing the same as we post.

The Eagles are playing a side that includes Allen, Kennedy, Darling forward. Nic Nat and Vardy in the ruck. Brander and Waterman on the wings/flanks. McGovern, Barrass and Rotham in defence. That’s 9-10 key position players.

Is it my imagination or did Maynard skin some stinky old wombat road kill and stick the pelt on his head?

I saw this on the Brad Hill thread on Bigfooty and just had to post it. 

This is possibly one of the worst individual efforts I have ever seen, and it's a very good example of why the Saints loss to Richmond means nothing in the context of the ANZAC Eve game. No one in a Melbourne jumper is going to do this next week, that's for damn sure.

 

 

Blimey that is one of the single worst efforts I’ve seen, and I’ve watched some truly disgraceful efforts for Melbourne players in the past. The damning part to it isn’t that he dropped the mark it’s how quickly he gave up, he’s having a terrible start to the year.

Why do we need to have the umpires mic'd up?  Bloody irritating especially the one with the ridiculously deep "STAAAAND"  voice.  Somebody shoot me

They'll get absolutely torched by quicker sides, especially those who have talls who can bring the ball to ground consistently and not get outmarked by the WCE talls.

I have the utmost fear of West Coast after witnessing that harrowing day in 2018 first-hand, but I think we can legit bring it to them with our list and gameplan even over there.

Ha I see Scomo is there. Been to more afl games in the last 3 weeks than he ever has. He'd still be learning on what's going on.

Well, I guess that makes 3 Liberal MPs in WA today.

Seriously, that bloke makes me sick.  Such a phoney.  Wouldn't know what an Ausie rules ball is from a soccer ball.  Sort of guy who would pretend to be interested in all the things you are just to try to look popular and hang with the cool kids.

The Libs are hated at the moment in WA. The boos he got when on-screen were noticeable.

The pies haven't been terrible but are 1-4. They can forget about finals this year. Could the wheels come off from here? 

GWS must be rubbing their hands together with glee at the thoughts of where the pies first round pick will fall. Could be a Top 5 selection. Wish we held that pick.

Not exactly the right thread, but am I alone in thinking that it’s crazy that no match is being played at the MCG on a Saturday afternoon?

I think its a one off due to the AFLW grand final which starts at 2pm. No mens games scheduled to avoid over-shadowing the womens big day. Fair enough i reckon.

Any other other Saturday and i would agree with you.

Hoping the Suns can ambush the doggies today. And i wouldn't mind seeing Port come unstuck either although the downside will be a week of the media pumping Carlton's tyres.

Dogs and Port are both the real deal. No way either is losing today, as much as I also want to see it happen.

I'm not confident either. Neither the Suns or Carlton have been at all convincing.

More it would be a nice surprise to see our direct rivals lose a game.

Ah, of course. I’ll have to think about something else to be annoyed at. 
Yes, the out of bounce deliberate rule is laughable

    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
