He has such an annoying head. Seems a [censored]. 
 

I will say one thing. Our goal kicking is going to hurt us badly one day. We miss too many regulation shots. 

Hes a little [censored].

Lost all respect when he staged a dive and smiled when he got the free kick. Should have gotten a fine from the AFL.

Glad we didn't recruit the little Fl og

I am so impressed with so many of the players in this team. Petty was a gun today, harmed went ballistic, Brayshaw played so [censored] well, rivers was a tank particularly for someone his size, Jordan was all time. And then to top it all off, Sparrow is sitting there as the medical sub ready to tear someone’s head off and whilst his 40 seconds tonight wasn’t enough I have no doubt he will make someone want to quit AFL in the coming weeks. I love this team.

Tom Sparrow made me cry.

My liver empathises with your liver. Let's hope they cope with many more Friday victories (and any other day ending with day...)

Remember those big Friday night games where we'd get completely thrashed? So good to see it changing.

THought we were great, kept a lot of their players out of it. The umpiring was terrible.

Thought the umpiring after quarter time was decent. Before quarter time, 720-degree spins must be holding the ball!

Ray gets plenty of stick but he was excellent tonight.

And here we are giving it to the best teams in the comp on the big Friday night games.
Very surreal.

Friday night footy with a win, we can enjoy the rest of the weekend's games and get talked about in all the shows.

How good is this?! Got the entire weekend to hear great things from all and sundry about our beloved Dees!

I said during the week if it's one player to shut down Weightman it's Rivers.

Took him to the absolute cleaners and completely nullified him out of the game.

Rivers has a funny habit of starting games slowly. He gifted Weightman a goal early. Then bouncing back and just building the longer the game goes. It was his best game for the year tonight.

Just on Weightman, he dropped a lot of easy marks under little pressure - from a variety of defenders. He played a bit like Kossie from last year. I expect he'll settle in to AFL and be holding them and converting within the next year. I wish JT figured out a way to get both the small forwards!

Umpiring was appalling. 

22 is dead set the worst in the comp. 

there were 2-3 HTB that were not paid. I think one resulted in a goal. 
 

There were a few that went out way too (Lever in the goal square)

Reckon the Weid can build on his 2nd half tonight.
Needs a confidence boost and might've got a little hit tonight.
Got a couple marks to stick.
Kicked 2 from 3.
Gets his hands on just about everything.
I'm backing him in to start holding a few more.
Reckon he's gotta relax, trying too hard.
Feeling the pressure to hold his spot.
 

Describes his whole career

Oh man, if only we could bottle this feeling. I’m still floating on a cloud. I keep thinking I’m dreaming. So, so proud of our awesome team. 
THIS MIGHT JUST BE  OUR YEAR!

❤️?❤️?❤️?

I’m borderline delirious, it’s waaaaay past my bedtime. Sweet dreams y’all 

One last thing to revel in... first time this season Naughton has failed to kick multiple goals. And it was against us!!!

I’ve never felt this feeling before, where you beat the top team and still feel like you can improve.

We’re a team for the big stage now, no doubt about it. The real deal.

Oh mate I’m so proud right now, this is a bloody stern and rugged football team. It’s not about sis toughest, it’s about who’s toughest the longest. Could have easily been a shoot out, hell the Dogs could have easily kicked the first of the second half and made it a game but we just juice extracted the early parts of these quarters and frustrated the heck out of them. Beware of the Dogs? I think not, beware of the guy guarding the gate with a big demon pitchfork! No dogs allowed 

Where do you start with the performances? I think you have to start in the coaches box. Yze saying we weren’t going to tag anyone? Mwah, absolute brilliance in theatre. Harmes to Libba when we could have easily sent him to Bont, we really did our homework there. Spargo’s run with role was excellent as well. It’s not all about the possession number it’s where they happen. Heck Bont had 30 of them, does anyone remember Bont actually doing anything?

Clayton Oliver take a bow young man, this guy could win a contested ball in Antarctica, even if he had to get there first. The way this guy is playing right now, do not change. His excellent handballing is still there, kicks when he should. Don’t even change the hair right now friend, seeing the Pat flowing front as he gathers a tough ball is a sight of beauty.

James Harmes, you started it all with that great goal and his game for the next 120 was just workman extraordinaire. Had his knockers, thought he’d find it hard getting back in but I think he’s back to stay now. Gut running midfielders are still in season and he played a game tonight like James McDonald would do every week back in the day keeping his opponent down but getting a lot of ball for himself. Best game in years.

How about Gus Brayshaw? 50-50 balls in the air that could have gone either way on that wing and he won nearly all of them. Huge part of the win. 

Trent Rivers you gun. Never wastes the footy, brilliant in one on ones. I’m actually getting sick of how this guy manages to spoil the ball in contests he looks like he has to right to be in (Just kidding, I’m not sick of this at all).

Jake Lever played but also played with rage! His holding the ball tackle I saw a look in his eyes I hadn’t seen before. It was a ‘You’re dead meat’ look. Man it’s so good to have the player we thought we were getting and then some. 

And how about disco Plugger Macdonald? Key marks in the game, his leads were to complex for the cruddy Bulldogs defenders which are just not up to it. G.Lyon made a great point a few weeks ago how they are balding at the crown but the party at the front can be combed back. 

Man I’m tired and drunk, need to finish this so I can drop the tablet and flop. 

ANB, Pickett, Jordan, Fritsch, Spargo just immense. Forward pressure was back tonight and we smoked it. 

Even Clint Bartram played well tonight, whenever he is.

We worked so hard tonight, no passengers. And after the week we’ve had as Victorians we deserve it. Can just sit back and enjoy the weekend filled with activities localised to my backyard. And everyone else including the ladder can get stuffed. Very very proud.

I’m tired, bed.

Great bounce back win 

Doubters can sit back down 

Our defensive setups must be first class

Highlight for mine was that lovely left foot pass by ANB that resulted in Weids first mark and goal in the 3rd. Crucial goal. ANB I was wrong. You have had a great year.  I thought your old habits were returning down in Tassie against North but you have bounced back. The true barometer. 

Love the ball in Spargo’s hands. He doesn’t mind drawing the high contact free does he. Selwood esk from Spargoat. 

Why does Max always get called to play on quickly after he marks it.

BT in round 11 just realises Brayshaw is playing a new role this year. Played great tonight. 

Shame about Langdon. Could be worse though.

Ordinary footballer at best. Never going to hurt you. A great example of why stats are sometimes meaningless

 

Seriously?

Libba is one of the best in the business at clearances. He gets the ball out of the pack and feeds guys like Macrae & the Bont. Stop him and you stop the clean supply to them. Stop the clean supply to them and you limit the influence of their two biggest weapons.

Sit back and watch the Bulldogs future opponents follow our lead and do the same thing.

This was a defensive masterclass. So much so that it forces us fans to look not at possessions, metres gained even goals anymore, but how well we nullify the opposition. 

Such defensiveness used to be the mantra of Paul Roos. Goodwin came in and thought it was better to attack. We did that for five years. For some reason we've now turned full circle and we are defending even better than we were under Roos. It's feckin brilliant!

As for Razor, he either needs to start throwing it up or stop attending the centre bounces altogether.

He barely managed to bounce it higher than his knackers all night.

Riewoldt gave Brayshaw a big pump up tonight and basically said that if a player of his calibre is playing a role like that - it is indicative of a team that is at its zenith. I agree, he wants to get on the footy but he can’t do that in a contending team - he is not quick enough and his close in skills are sketchy (that’s my opinion) but he is smart and selfless and courageous and that takes you a long way on a defensive wing.

So impressive.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
