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. 😂😂

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

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

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.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
