I could think of another team that people call them that..🏂🏂🏂🏂

Correct historically, but maybe your tense is incorrect. We'll see soon.

"..people called them that..."?

Ha how good is it seeing the cats lose on the siren, selwood going nuts and scott sitting in the coaches box shaking his head. 

What a shame that the Cats lost. 😜

Disgusting that they can only draw 24,000 to a game against an interstate club. Pathetic.

My read was the Dogs gave Richmond some ammunition to work with in the second half. The Dogs flooded heavily in the second quarter and were able to rebound and break away easily from defence. To sustain that against the Tigers all game is flirting with danger. 
Hardwick was quick to recognise this at half time and Liam Baker was moved forward in the third and set the tone early with his forward pressure and had a real impact. That got their tails up and the Dogs faced an uphill battle from there, all of a sudden the ball wasn’t escaping the Dogs backline with ease. 
Credit to the Tigers for a brilliant third quarter, it won them the game and they were too good on the night.

I don’t watch enough Dogs games to know if it is always the case but Caleb Daniel looked like their most important player. He sets up the play for them and always puts players into better positions. Stats sometimes inflate a player’s importance but his 34 disposals last night at 91%m if anything, undersells him. 
When we play them I’d be putting ANB on him as a hard tag. Take away Daniel and the Bulldogs will struggle

Either ANB OR Spargo's clear role will be to HARD tag Caleb Daniel and then escort him to his car after the game, help him put his keys in the ignition and watch him drive of into the sunset

Good to see the AFL continuing last night with their distancing model by leaving great swathes of the upper deck empty.

Expect the same with Pies v Suns today.

Every time Josh Bruce got near the ball did  anyone else think "I cant believe this guy kicked 10 goals in a game?"

That's how bad North Melbourne are by the way.  Ben Brown should be aiming to kick 15 on Sunday.

And as for the soft Dogs, how much of their 157% came from their 130 point pounding of a listless North under the Telstra dome roof?

The best 3 teams in the comp are Melbourne, Port and Richmond in that order.

 Naughtons set shot in the last quarter was one of the worst ever.  Kept looking up at the scoreboard.  Not sure what he was distracted by but shows how mentally weak the Dogs are.  Will be very disappointing if we lose to such a soft overrated outfit.

Just making sure the perm looked alright!  He should have been hurrying back and just banging it through, was quite strange considering time left in game.

He was actually checking the vision to admire and make sure his coiffure wasn’t too ruffled.

Gold Coast don't have a proper ruckman today.  This Chris Burgess fella who is named as ruck doesnt even get any hitouts and the kid Graham gets 10-12 per game.  Just what  the hell are they playing at?   Grundy will get 80 hit outs today.

The odd will get longer as the season goes on. ie if they beat us the other games become pointless.

The ruck position is over rated. I don;t remember the exact details but in the game against brisbane Grundy had something like 80% of the hit-outs. The pies still lost the game.

    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.

    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
