GAMEDAY: Rd 08 vs Sydney



Recommended Posts


Enjoyed the games of Harmes and Jordon so far. Harmes has justified his selection and Jordon continues to improve. 

Benny Brown looks more of an aerial threat today compared to last week.

Dees by 30.

If we open up the forward 50 for BBB we will win by 6 goals plus

Leave him one out with the forward flankers streaming towards goal for a crumb 

their backline is strong on the ground and in the contest - we need to clear it out!

Im sorry but 9 times as many centre clearances is an absolute disgrace.

Swans tackle count much higher too.

Come on Lever.. Rivers.. especially Hunt and Gus.get going for goodness sake.

Jackson shut down as is Fritta.

Goodsy needs to give them a serve re pressure.

Congrats Oliver...Spargo...Tmac... bbb...Max... May and Langdon.

But please make our tackles harder.

Should be 4 goals up. We kicked well early but missed 2 soda set shots there and Tracc needs to nail those snaps if he is to be elite. Hopefully second half we get our goal kicking accuracy right.

Pre-bandage Harmes was horrible. Poor decisions.

Post-bandage Harmes better. Perhaps the head bandage changed his mindset?

Bit in that.

Once Harmes stopped trying to break every tackle he got better.

Jordon has been good, the cleanness of ball use will come with games and belief he has that few moments to compose before distribution.

Love you Max but your goal kicking stinks big time. U 2 trac.

Kozzie was in space with no one on him coming from behind on his right side.  No one within cooee...just off the bench maybe.

Doesn't usually happen unless 50 out or more but with Maxy on a pretty severe angle (for him) they might wanna consider dishing off to a better kick like Kozzie on the run in this situation.  Has to be a better percentage chance surely

ANB doing some nice things, Melk, loved that 1st goal when heat was on, Tmac work down the ground was key, he can go back but then the 1st goal was clutch. Lever jumping up and down with frustration was funny. So many moments in this game be still my beating heart. God bless Langdon. Benny doing exactly what we wanted. So many more comments for the end of game.

Also kudos/ hat tip to Longmire - he is scaring the crap out of me, Syd winning clearances, stalled our intercept marking and has numbers at the ball. That said how good are the Dee's didn't drop their bundle - thanks Goodwin!

McDonald (back) + Wiedeman > McDonald forward + Petty

Petty isn't the future. He's not an AFL standard defender, no way known.

Imagine not looking that good as a 21 year old, 12 game key defender. 

There is 0% chance they drop him now. Show him some belief. He will deliver in the back half of the year.

Gosh Petty looks very shaky. Needs to significantly build up his strength. 

Thought Harmes has been ok to good. Max a bit quiet again, though came into it a bit more during the second.

Quite a few have the fumbles.........calm down and play simple footy.

Petty’s having an absolute shocker. He started poorly but improved in the Hawthorn game so let’s see what the second half brings. 

Should be 4 goals up after the dominance we had for the first 15 minutes of that quarter.

Fritta has to get his [censored] together. He’s all over the shop. 
Clearances. Clearances. Clearances. It’s the only way to get Sydney to stop riding our arses

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
