So they’ll still cop a monumental thumping, only now they won’t have as far to travel to lick their wounds.

Would much rather play them at the G than that [censored] hole Launceston.   Looking forward to this game turning into a big percentage and confidence booster for the team.  Would really love to stick it up North.

Marvel would be perfect.  We play great there and finally a dry deck for us to kick a mammoth score. 

I said in another thread that I thought Melbourne supporters would be humble if we went on a Richmond-like run. Well, I was probably a bit naive looking at the arrogance of a few of these posts.

FFS, after where we've been, you'd think we'd always respect every opposition we play. Apparently not.

I wouldn’t risk going to Tassie lest another one or even two Covid cases (!) sees you stuck there. Imagine that. The horror...THE HORROR. 

As that famous footy scribe Marcus Clark wrote ‘For the Term of his Natural Life’.

North have lost most games this season by ~50+ points.  If we are not expecting to and planning to demolish them, we are effectively loosing ground on %to every other team in the comp.   Bulldogs are stitting above us on the ladder at the moment largely because of their dismemberment of North.  Want to see us get ruthless in how we go about putting away the rubbish teams of the comp.

Personally, I've sat through the receiving end of enough thrashings over the years, that I'm going to enjoy whatever dominance we can achieve while it lasts.  That 100+ point win we had over Carlton a few years back was very enjoyable.

I was fearing that might occur and we get shafted again and lose momentum. 
Last years stuff up whilst not any excuse, didn’t help the cause with having to squeeze games in to a tighter time frame.

While I agree we need to be prepared to win anywhere, I'm also not at the stage where I'm happy to give up any kind of advantage.

Playing North in Melbourne instead of Tassie is a win for us. They play well in Launceston.

I do feel bad for our Tassie supporters, though.

I don’t care where we play them as long as the game goes ahead. The last thing we need is yet another interruption to our season and having to cram this game in before finals. 
 

Also lol at the arrogance here. Nothing would be more Melbourne than beating Richmond tonight and then losing to Norf next week.

Do we play North again..

if so beware the switch

If so then it is unacceptable that our home game against them is at Marvel. Surely they can't play 2 home games against us in a year. If so then next year we should play them twice at the G.

More likely they switch one of their games later in the year to Tasmania. We only play them once this year unfortunately.

If BB plays well for Casey today and the game is in Melbourne, you would think he plays.

But then again who knows?

Just took a big pack mark and goaled from about 35.

Chest mark same spot another goal.

He’s got a 14-4 record at Blundstone for 35 goals - he plays well there.

Pettraca will snooze off.

I think we owe Norf a few years of arrogance as pay back for their horrid 16 game win streak over us. And for the years of Boomer Harvey nightmares. :laugh:

I can only speak for myself when I stress that there was not even a skerrick of malice in my comment. It was meant to be humorous. Granted, it wasn’t that funny; pretty ordinary in fact. Nonetheless, it was not said with ill will. I actually really like North and sincerely hope their fortunes change soon. I also like Tasmania. I need to say this since I may or may not have likened Tassie to being with Colonel Kurtz in the death-ridden jungles of Cambodia, and I wouldn’t want anyone to take it the wrong way. ?

I’m a Dees fan, FFS. “Humble” is my middle name.

Game will be played in Hobart folks unless this outbreak really starts spreading.  Checked the tas-gov covid site and it’s only from certain hotspots not all of Perth. Friends have a Perth friend arrive today and did not need to isolate.

I am waiting to pay back so many opposition supporters for years of humiliation and torment. 
In 1988 I was locked in a room with 4 Whorethorn Supporters for the entire Grand Final and only let out once the Cup had done the full lap.

I was also continually reminded of the year before.... 
That is ONE example. 

I hate 17 other Clubs and it’s about time the MFC felt the same way

    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
