He’s an average player at best, his strength is one on one contests otherwise he’s terrible. 

On The Couch ripped Liam Jones apart the other night. Great one on one defensively but if he refuses to adhere to the structure again this week we will walk goals in.

Yea lol that is the one I just found. I love his story as he was just derided during g his dogs stint and he was able to turn into an ok defender with moments of brilliance.

Yep, saw him lots of times just trying to get a run at the ball and just being scragged.

He did alright last week and he'll learn to beat those tags. He's just too good 

If they tag Kossy too hard it mess Spargo should have a better  game, he might also step into Kossys tagger 

hard player hard tackler not very tall

I like the way he plays. Both of em !

The line with the bookies is instructive. +24.5 Carlton 1.90.

$3.00 MFC at -38.5

$7 for -60.5....

$4 for -47.5

 

 

Can you explain to me in simple terms what this means ?? 

 I don't do ' At the line ' speak

Agreed. Very worried about this game.

I was there last week AF,  but I can’t see the Blues bringing 4 QTEQ of heat.

That said, I remember 2016-2017 when we should have belted them but didn’t.

If the line is MFC -38.5 paying $3 it means Melbourne has to win by at least 39 points for you to win the bet and it will pay 3-1 odds (so you win $3 for every dollar you bet)

If Carlton is +24.5 and paying $1.90 it means for you to win your bet Carlton has to either win or lose by 24 points or less and your payout is $1.90 for every dollar you bet

 Peter “Johnno” Johnson mad bluebagger has put $100 on the blues. Reckons the upset is on and put his cash in.  Still arrogant even after their crap run over the past few years.  Let’s rub it in their snug faces. Go Dees 

Woweee- why does this [censored] matter?

Carlton 2021 is Melbourne 2016. A good average team. We beat a 1st placed Hawthorn in 2016 deep into the season.  

We have had three bruising encounters and Carlton can look quite good when they're switched on. They lack defensive awareness as a team but they're no easy beats and will be going for blood after folding against the Dogs. Lots of pressure and talk on them this week.

I think we are much better than them but anything can happen. Tbh wouldn't be surprised if we lose this week.

My concern is from about 2004.
Eyeing off top4 and lost to them twice during the season.
They were bottom of the ladder but we had no answer for Fevola.

We've got a mounting injury list.
Tomlinson, Viney, Jackson out and not sure what sort of shape Petracca's in after his corky.
But they have their concerns with Cripps and if were as good as we think we should roll 'em regardless.
But I've never been one to go counting the chooks.
Been following this club too long for that.

If only I could have.
That game and the following ones to the end of the season disgusted me at the time.
I think in the second game rd18 or so a win against bottom side Carlton would have given us top spot and a guaranteed top4.
Then we spudded up, lost the remainder of games, fell into the finals and got booted the 1st week.
It was everything I hated about the club at the time.
We were so up and down.
It was like as soon as they did enough to guarantee a finals spot they got lazy and took their foot off the accelerator.

Slight correction. I believe the year you are referring to is 2006.

We actually rolled them at the G by 100 in our first fixture. We then played them at Princes Park with our chances to go top 4 still very much real.

Despite them being bog ordinary and made up of also rans from other clubs, we proceeded to poo the bed and lose by 5 goals.

Nah, you are right about the 1st 100pt win and that was 2004.

And the year I am referring to was 2006
Both Carlton games played at telstra.
Both loses when they were wooden spooners.
The year we beat the Aints in the Elim.
Again stunk it up in the latter part of the season though.

My memory obviously muddled with all the frustration.
There was so much of it.
But I was at the second game late in the season at 'Telstra' leaving disgusted.

It was round 1 2006 that I left disgusted. Carlton won 3 games for the season, 2 of them were against us! It cost us top 4.

We also lost to them late in 2004 at Princes Park after topping the ladder in round 18 against Hawthorn. I was working that day and remember being in utter shock when I checked the scores.

I was chatting to a couple of blues supporting mates and i think there is seriously a CFCSS situation going on. one expects them to lose by plenty, the other things they'll dominate the game, have all the running and choke in the last 10 minutes and lose. 

i said i was fine with either, but would like to win by a bit as last week was a bit hectic. 

they both can't stand teague and think the club is covering up a pretty significant injury to Cripps

    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
