Brisbane are an ugly team that are going to be hard to beat.

The game in the NT is going to be a genuine top 4 battle. Surely the biggest game hosted at either Alice Springs or Darwin.

Tigers, you never want to count them out and they always seem to peak at the end of the year, but they just don't seem to have the same air about them.

BT talking about Brisbane playing Melbourne in a few weeks and basically dismissing the Dees and writing the game down as a win to Brisbane

Free Kick count is lopsided but this guy is the biggest whinger in the AFL. 

 

Predictable response from someone who knows the writing is on the wall. Beginning of the end for the Tigers

Can only hope so. They've had their time in the sun. Time to head back to the cellar.

Tigers just aren’t that good this year...

Last year’s lightening premiership in a plague year seems to have plastered over some of the now revealed flaws in their team makeup. Auntie Jack now only seems capable of the odd cameo and Dusty has an emerging portfolio of product endorsements and personal marketing opportunities to nurture.

They've lost their hunger the Tigers, but you'd be a fool to write them off with so many to come back from injury.

The Brisbane talls are very good. If Daniher ever gets fit then they'll be even better.

McCluggage and Zorko are top-10 players in the AFL.

I still think we can beat them though!

Kicked a goal then mimed ripping the shirt open like superman and stuck the forehead and his massive underbite into Baker. 

“Massive underbite” 😂

Hipwood’s not too shabby either.

Can I just ask if our Alice Springs game v lions is a home game for us?

Im sure it is and we are financially compensated for it.

I would be keen if mods could do a survey on if this is a good idea.

Especially after Goody wants it to be fortress Mcg. Its contrary to this view.

Also its not like a trip to Sydney or Canberra. Its a fair distance.

Given we play eight away games including kardinia but not the ones at marvel( whick is the mist for vic clubs)... im wondering if we just forgo the $ or whatever and keep our eyes on the ultimate prize...a flag.

Also given how covid has stopped so many in melb last year seeing live footy...why play up there ?

open a separate topic thread and we can have a chat

BT we suspect is still suffering post-traumatic stress disorder from an on field encounter with Danny Hughes at the G in his ‘halcyon’ playing days with the filth.

Danny magnificently thumped BT on the lead. BT blew his stack and caused much mirth, running around with a cauliflower ear and a red as beetroot face vainly trying to catch Danny who would have none of it.

That may explain his deep seated antipathy to Red and Blue.

Think the media is over playing who’s missing from Richmond’s side.
 

Besides nearly all teams almost never have their best 22 available, Richmond had 5 of their best 22 missing tonight (Melbourne missed 3 last week). Of those 5 Cotchin is injury prone and well past his best. Prestia is also often injured and the return of 20 minute quarters might find him out.  Shane Edwards still has good footy in him, but he turns 33 this year. Bolton is a star, so that’s definitely hurting them. Lambert is a solid backman, but no star. Brisbane had a few out tonight, but that doesn’t get much attention from the media.

I despise them but can’t buy this. That’s basically their entire starting midfield. We got shown up in the pre season against the Dogs when we had Trac and a bunch of kids running through there.

Granted their game doesn’t rely on dominance out of the middle but you can’t put a line through them until they have their best side on the park.

Does anyone else get a Michael Long circa 2000 vibe about Marlion Pickett?

I thought his late hit (which the commentators were a little too quick for my liking to dismiss) was a very dirty and sniping hit, the way his forearm clattered into the Lions player and then his other hand very deliberately came down on the guys face tells me he's someone that doesn't respond well to the team losing. I could definitely see him lining someone up for 10 meters away to "take him out of the game".

I know the umpiring has been one sided, but I can’t recall a coach whining about it at half time like Hardwick, what a little [censored]

After this round it will be interesting to see the figures of frees for and against for Richmond.

Having watched several Richmond matches lately (thanks Channel 7 & AFL 8/10 I think) you can see why they give so many frees away. No use complaining Hardwick as you have them playing similar to your playing days  and you were a filthy (disgustingly dirty) animal back then. I still have 2000 in my mind.

Keep complaining Hardwick. You reap what you sow. No wonder you got Lynch to your club as he just fits the mongrel you love. Karma will catch up to him as well.

Don’t rate this win that highly.

Clearances 51-24 is outrageous. Won’t be repeated when Richmond have a functioning midfield.

Plus the crazy free kick differential for the first half.

Brisbane did a lot of bombing. May and Lever can deal with that. Lockdown on Rich - he is their Salem. Breakeven-ish in the midfield and I think we will take them

I think we can easily account for the lions, would love to have our fwd line settled by then.
 

As for Richmond, no one can deny they’ve been a great team, but between all the whinging and seeing the vision of the off the ball incidents against GWS they can get stuffed. They also seem to forget that other clubs have injuries too.

Yes it is and we play well there. I don't think the Lions have played there very often so I reckon that gives us an advantage.

Didnt we used to play port or Freo there?

    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

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
