And we’ve got Stkilda and North to look forward to! Electrifying sports entertainment. 

Could be a close game

PS to be honest I would rather clean my shoes and cut my finger nails.

Gee whizz, it's a good thing the Pies had an extra skill session this week. This could have been a complete blow out otherwise !!

My god that game was pathetic. Although at the end part of me wanted the pies to sneak another to make it interesting. But this was a team 3rd on the ladder and they could only manage 8 goals. Collingwood was just as bad. They couldn't even kick a goal in 2 quarters. 

We had kicked more goals at half time than the cats had all game. 

On another note is it wrong of me to hope Grundy has done a minor injury and miss our game.

Yes.

Mitch Robinson ran right off his mark for that kick after the siren. How was that not play on? These rules do my head in. The ump said he was fine to do it.

The umps in the Pies game allowed a plethora of short kicks and "protected zone" invasions. They might not like the rules (and let's face it, some of them are bad rules) but they don't get to decide which ones to enforce and which ones not. The AFL don't care.

It's an interesting season. The lions are well in front of GWS but not really looking that fantastic either.
Mitch Robinson looks like the main one to stop. No other Brisbane player seems to be dominating.
GWS look bog ordinary.
Haven't seen a lot of Port so far though.

Dees, Dog and perhaps the Lions and daylight to the rest.

I'm finding it hard to watch these crowdless games. The absence of crowd noise is manageable but for some reason they've stopped enabling the umpires mic on free kicks. Didn't think that would annoy me so much but stoppage after stoppage I'm left guessing if it's a ball up, holding the ball or some other decision.

Pies v Cats: unwatchable.

Lions v Giants: training drill

Saints v Roos: is this AFL or VFL?

Lockdown means time to watch footy and the footy is putrid.

I guess they stop the umps Mike’s because they don’t want to broadcast the players swearing

that would be even funnier and the pies would be filthy. 

It would be the end of this current board you would think. I think they are gone any way. It is very hard not to enjoy all this.Not that I am trying.

Cameron has been threatening to have a big game. Hibbo will need to be alert next week.

I thought this would be much closer. the Giants form has been solid but there first quarter was as bad as their game against Freo. Totally disinterested today.

The pies are going to get the best player in the draft anyways in Daicos through father son. They would have to pay for him through points anyways so made sense for them to trade their future first last year rather than using it to pay for Daicos this year.  But its fantastic for GWS getting what will be a top 5 pick. They must be rapt watching the pies flounder.

    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

    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
