The Significance of 9 Wins in a Row

Recommended Posts


One Flag and I am cured of MFCSS . The MFC army IS mustering after a long furlough . The members was packed . As the season goes on more will join and other teams supporters will jump on for the finals . We are 4 games ahead of Richmond in 8th . Pinching myself so often to make sure I am not dreaming that I am red and blue on the outside .

Looking at the season from afar and if all lists are healthy coming into september.TO me it's a race out of 5 teams this year

Dees,dogs,port, tigers and cats

Just all comes down to the top 4 and where everyone plays 

Anyone can knock anyone off on the day ATM but if the interstate teams don't make the top 4 it's going to be tough for them 

The only real smokey at the g is the Swans it suits there game but I think the kids will run out of legs in a long season

Just hope like hell we keep doing what where doing

go demons

The only significance of 9 wins in a row is that it is one more than 8 wins in a row.

One week at a time. First make the eight, then the four, then the two.

Have been through too many false projections.

Sadly I agree with you tiers however I do enjoy 9 zero more than any other result at this point. And we still haven’t beaten anyone above us!

We need to finish top 2 to give us the best chance of winning the flag.  This season it is likely that 16 wins will secure top 2.  As such the only significance of our 9 - 0 start is that we now required just 7 wins from the last 13 games to achieve this.

I've always had the view that it's not a bad thing if you’re not playing your best football this time of year.  I just worry that we've peaked too early.

I don't think we've peaked at all.  Working out what is our optimal forward set-up is very much work-in-progress.

Just taking it one game at a time, no point in stressing ahead of time, enjoying the serenity of it all and we still haven’t played our best Footy yet. Each win puts us that much closer to Finals footy and how we all loved 2018 and we are now a better team. 2021 roll on and on.!!!!

Go Dee’s...!!!!

was intending to go on Saturday but the weather and drive put me off.

Bulldogs is a real possibility.

Would love a game at Preston/Windy Hill/Coburg or Port.

Seems that the VFL draw pits the AFL related teams against each other.

The streak is challenging for mental state. Increasingly I've found myself going to the footy hoping not to lose rather than to win. Makes it slightly less enjoyable when we do inevitably grind out our predictable 4-5 goal win.

Such strange times! Loving it though, can't wait to see how we go in the Bulldogs game. Every chance they get roadblocked by our impenetrable defensive walls and our big boys turn on up the offensive hurt factor.

we keep saying this but starting to wonder if they can improve greatly.

You don't improve forward delivery overnight for example. 

Goals v Behinds is 50% luck... just ask Dusty

The fringe players are contributing well

Probably LJ has the greatest upside

Sure there is scope for improvement but not sure it will come.

Of course our present standard has been good enough so far

I think there is a case to be made, OD, that we have beaten everyone above us ...

just noticed we have a VFL game against the Swans on Sunday at 1pm at Casey.

Assuming the sub and the emergency are back from Adelaide it could be a strong Casey side.

Sunday weather looking not too bad.. 18 fine and a medium breeze

Sadly Casey is the other end of the earth from me in the north west DJ. Hopefully that game is on tv.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
