Premiership contenders don't lose to teams like Adelaide.    We might make a prelim but we wont win the flag.

The  Dogs and Lions will beat us the next two weeks.

 

Now is not the time for MFCSS fatalism

We'll re-group and go again.

Robbed!!!

 

Deliberate out of bounds,10 seconds to go

 

Umpire [censored] Himself!!!

From the umpires, many obvious and a few criticals as far as the 'crowd pleasers' were concerned. Kept the Crows in the game. Cost us dearly all through the game. Oliver, Tracca and Langdon superb. Harmes much better, as well. Missed Salem's cleaning-up when the ball came to the ground. Jackson is a gun and plays better each week. Great exhibition in the ruck and around the ground tonight.

Kinda conflicted. Know it was a loss we had to had, but would much rather it have been against a top team like Bulldogs, than a dud team like Adelaide.  I hope this is a serious wake up call to not get too confident. Maybe they’ll take the next game more seriously. I’m worried that we had a pretty good team even though Salem wasn’t playing.

Sad 😢

Not too fussed if Sam W leaves our club. He played with little intensity today when we really needed him to contribute.

I guess they had to role the dice but sadly Bbb would have been the better option.

Melksham is not a goid pkayer either.

Crows defence was excellent tonight.

I argued our middield srocjs were low with Jack V out but I got howled down.

Its always two weeks out with Viney which always turns into six.

Hunt is back to his old self. Tommy had a shocker and Jwtta isnt up to it anymore.

We looked tired as well.

It was always going to be tough but made worst by the shocking non decisuons at the end.

Take a bow umps you won a game for the crows or at keast caused a draw.

So unprofessional. Its exactly what was discussed last week in umpires being swayed by home crowds.

Spineless boofheads.

There is no integrity in the AFL. For those umps to not pay those 2 frees near the end really makes you question the professionalism of this competition. If that was a final.. It would be catastrophic. It makes it really hard to unconditionally love our game.

I hope the ladder position of the crows isn't dwelled on... 16th or not, they played a great brand on the day. It's just unfortunate they did it against us (noting full well they would have pumped themselves up to "take it the top of the ladder Dees")

Face it, relying on a free kick in the last seconds to beat a bottom side is not good enough.

Fact is that was right on front of the umpire and he squibbed the decision. Bet if it had of happened down the other end the result would have been different

We lost because too many went against exactly what we've brought all year - selflessness and sacrificing your game for the good of the team.

Too many trying to be the hero. Too many trying to get the easy kick. Fritta's non-goal just summed up a [censored] day at the office.

Salem sorely missed.  In for Jetta next week.  BBB in for Weids.  Viney in for JJ.

Bombing it into fwd 50 didn't let TMac, BF and Weids to get into the game at all.

Well played Adelaide.  Hungrier when it counted.  

Umpiring late in the game was deplorable.

Also just in advance, can we also have a moratorium on being told to ‘lighten up’ or ‘we’re 9-1 you’d think someone died round here’ or any other cool thing that some freedom fighter wants to say? Most of us will see the light eventually but give us 1 hr at least.

Thank you! I couldn’t agree more. I’m literally gutted. So your suggestion is a great one. But personally I’m gonna need a little more than an hour. 😥

I wish I could be angry. Being disappointed is so much harder.

Yes, but you're not addressing what I said

Our connection to the forward line is pretty bad still and also impacts our ability to maintain pressure once the ball hits the deck. Although I think our effort level was poor for 60% of the game which compounded our poor delivery.

A few blokes won’t enjoy the loss review during the week.

Some reasons we lost: 

Gawn dropping regulation marks and palming it into open goals 

May getting done over by a big eared inbred bogan

Trac and Harmes playing like millionaires 

Jetta is done.

Hunt is only good when Salem is covering his [censored]. 

Weideman and Fritsch actual liabilities 

JJ nervous with ball in hand 

Poor defensive effort all over the ground in the first half. Lazy, unaccountable football allowing Adelaide to run down the corridor unaccounted and kick easy goals from clearances 

Turnovers. Cannot hit the side of a barn. 
 

 

Reasons why we didn’t lose by more:

Oliver 
Lever 
Langdon
Jackson in the ruck

Blatant HtB

Blatant deliberate 

Neither paid due to noise of affirmation 

...you can get away with Htb but not the deliberate.

Simply because if that wasnt deliberate then there never has been. Ever.

Don't forget Jordon. Everytime he touched it he turned it over.

Lots of frustrating cameos tonight.

If only Jackson could mark. He gets to so many contests, and his hands are first to the ball. But he just can't clunk them...yet.

Jordon's kicking is becoming a real worry. For a bloke who is playing so well he consistently produces howlers.

Fritsch and his kicking... 

Max in many dumb moments.

And our basic skills - marking, handballing, kicking, and general ball handling was torturous to watch.

But our main problem  is our midfield. The number of times they waltzed through the corridor in numbers, especially with one running ahead of the play, was infuriating.

    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
