If we and WC win tomorrow we will be 3 games clear inside the top 4. After just 7 games. Golly. 

I don't think maths is your strong suit

I tipped the suns. Collingwood are decimated by injuries. Nothing Buckley can do about it.

Yes, that's the spirit. I hope that's how the media portray their lack of system and willingness to bring adequate workrate. It might just get Buckley another contract.

Collingwood were decimated with injuries for much of 2018 and because their system was working, they made a GF. 

Buckley will be gone by 2022.

24k at the MCG in perfect weather on a Saturday. I know they're at the bottom, but their fans really have dropped off something shocking. In the same position, it's roughly what we'd get to a game like that. They have maby more fans than us though. [censored] poor from them.

how much time was on the clock at that stage?

if he milked the 30 secs he would be kicking on an impossible angle with no run around

6 seconds. It's likely he wouldn't have kicked it in time. That might have been even funnier.

Will speak to my neighbour as he was involved in making the banner yesterday. Great ammo for me. Haha

Just spoke to my neighbour regarding Collingwood's banner mistake. Older volunteers cut out the letter's and figures from a memo issued by the club (which had the spelling mistake) and the cheersquad assembled it to the "club memo". The mistake was pointed out to them but we saw the result.

As my neighbour pointed out to me Collingwood have far bigger problems than a misspelt banner.

That's all for TONIHGT folks.

Just watched the last 2min of the Swans/Cats match, definitely think the Cameron mark went 15m but he would’ve been kicking after the siren so by no means an easy goal. The HTB at the end siren been any whistle anyway and it was 50/50 at best. 

They got a lucky one against the Lions (and have had a bunch against us) so it’s about time one went the other way. Have a sook Scott!!!!

I thought it was genuinely a deliberate joke seeing as they had made the same mistake in the past.

Exactly, even putting aside their huge number of members it’s the fact that hey have so many supporters and still pull an awful crowd that makes it so bad.

The cats got a dud call last night, which will get all the focus and attention, but they have no one to blame but themselves for lsing that game. They kept the swans in the game through their own poor goal kicking then choked badly in the last 5 mins to concede those goals. 

Should be a ripper next sat night at the G

We will have a boil over game and you lot will react on here like your favourite Star Wars character was replaced by a woman.

Long season, all teams have weaknesses and we are the only ones with ours not yet exploited. There is no super team and that is great considering the last time we got close.

Footy is good atm.

And [censored] Geelong. Lel.

"Nothing Buckley can do..." I had to do a double take on that sentence from @godees as I thought at first it was an ingenious reworking of his name. A nickname for him and the silverware that's evaded him all these years for shafting Brisbane! Nothin' Buckley. ??

Just watched the last two mins also, amongst all that noise I’m sure you can just hear the ump say “play on....touched” first after it was kicked in Cameron’s direction.

I honestly don’t know if the top of the ladder or the bottom is more fun to look at, at the moment. All the most annoying teams on the bottom. Just need the Cats to slide more. threw away a 30 pt lead against an injury depleted swans. Beautiful

If you hate Geelong that was a most enjoyable finish to the game against the Swans to watch.

I hate the Cats. They are arrogant. Chris Scott is painful.
But they were robbed. Clearly Cameron’s mark should have been paid. The kick went at least 15 metres.

Same sentiment Spirit. 
 

The real issue is umpires changing their decision making based on the state of the game or it’s location

Honestly have no idea who’ll win between bombers v blues and the WA derby. Toss of a coin in both I reckon. 

WC’s injuries are brutal. No McGovern or Barass their defence looks shaky

I can’t believe I want Essendon to win (?), but it would be pretty funny if Carlton lose this one. Collingwood and Carlton in the gun all week, while we hopefully sit on top of the ladder.

    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
