Dees have now beaten no one again because we beat Geelong when Cameron and Higgins were out and we beat Richmond who are clearly incapable of a full game of Tiger pressure anymore.

I honestly don't think we've played our best footy yet.

We're unbeaten but still a way's off sorting our best combination.

...not a bad position to be in.

I kinda like seeing the Tigers drop back down to earth, but must Geelong continue to just not go away?  I cannot stand that club. When will they just die of old age already?!

Obvious move to me is sack BT and replace him with Daisy 

They were good, but on the other hand the opposition looked poor. Fumbled from the first Q (Lynch started the rot) and panicked as the game went on. A long season and an ageing list for both thes

Damn was hoping for a draw so neither of these 2 won.

Useless Bulldogs really let Richmond off the hook. Could’ve put some serious ladder pressure on them. 

The Western Bulldogs couldn't beat the Tigers but Melbourne and Geelong could. Probably doesn't say a great deal of positive things about their finals footy brand.

Wayne Carey says don’t worry about the Tiges, this is just a “blemish.” A 10-goal pantsing is a “blemish.” LOL

Haha. I don’t think so. Richmond haven’t looked this bad for a number of years.

Tigers starting to have the stench of thinking that they can just turn it on whenever they need to. I suppose that type of arrogance only comes from sustained success, however their hunger is clearly missing and when that goes, it ain’t as easy as simply flicking a switch.

Tigers time at the top is over. Only hope that I can one day say the same thing with the Dees.

Geelong went to school on Melbourne's win over Richmond, and proved that the strategy works.  Numbers / pressure around the contest, and fast ball movement.

The pressure would really be ratcheting up on the Tigers if it wasn’t for 1 good quarter against the Dogs

Lynch looks like that kid who's always yelling 'kick it to me'. Can't go hard, appeals to the umpires, spent his junior footy years relying on his freak show height and has got nothing else.

The case for 3 talls in the forward line.

 Cameron 5

Rohan 5

 Hawkins 2 

Rohan is the same height as Fritsch.

Richmond just have that whiff about them of only going hard when they have a point to prove. It’s the downside to sustained success.

Interesting point…

Richmond had fumbles, couldn't hold a forward area mark, couldn't score on Geelongs turnovers and had passengers. 

Geelong forced errors onto the tiges and wanted it more.

No roar from the tiges in the third, they got rolled.

Counter attack footy doesn't work. Possession of the football in the forward area takes pressure of the backline.

Ruck craft killed the undersized man.

Not sure a player who has won multiple finals off his own boot can be described as a downhill skier.

    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
