Foxtel mate. But pretty sure the AFL website has replays you can watch or try the channel 7 app?

AFL website works perfectly, especially as l watch it through my APPLE TV device using my ipad. Great trick!

One bad mistake. The goal to English just before half time, only occurred  because, first, Petty was blocked, and then Gawn was . Quite obviously really!

Those 'blocks' were very obvious yet not picked up by the snot goblins in the contest. Was it a case of score-evening by the umpires? (Yet again.)

Courtesy of Stephen Anderson off FB... the bias against the Demons continues.  Razor or no Razor.  T-Mac shirt fronted no eyes for the ball no free...

Then May ... inflicts a perfect spoil.  Zero chopping zero holding and be unlucky to get called in basketball but wait... somehow it was "Arm interference".  There is vision of this if you scroll down in the comments section of the linked video above

What about Cordy mouthing off at him after obviously getting him high.

Fritsch just went back, curled the goal around, and got on with it.

That should have been 50m, just get back and stand on the mark you muppet.

Good to see Weid come in to help him, but how about Razor just telling Weid to walk away and saying nothing about the bloke who kept bumping someone while he was trying to get up. 

Exactly. Interference with a possible injured player is reportable and the ump should have been in his face getting him away from fritta.

yeah i saw that too. my first instinct is i wanted weid to be a bit stronger. it made me miss viney tbh. one of these days, and it may well be against the lions, a side is going to try physically intimidate us ..and i don’t mean at or around the ball. weid, jackson, tmac, lever are all wonderful players but they wouldn’t strike physical fear into a mouse. 

Tbh I loved what Weid did, blocked him, told him to [censored] off but did it without any chance of a reversal being paid. Viney probably clobbers him and Razor reverses the free.

So if you watched the Sunday Footy Show there was a 2 minute snippet of how the Demons go from attack to defence so well which confused and mucked the Doggies on Friday night.

Every other match was covered with a full review & highlights package, including votes , except ours.

This included extensive coverage of what was, apparently, the greatest win in recent history by Essendrug over the Eagles with player interview and similar coverage of the Cats win over the Pies with Issac Smith interviewed.

Apparently our win/top of the table block buster match was an aberration that only warranted a 2 minute analysis from Browny at the start.

This conspiracy theory is getting tiresome. And as for Razor Ray, if anything, he has treated us very well over the past couple of seasons.

Yep - and I watched it all to see them cover the dees. Waste of a couple of hours - could have watched the game again

You think there's a bias against us?  Every team has supporters that like to think that. 

There's an old saying that given a choice between a conspiracy and a stuff-up, always go for the stuff-up (umpiring error in this particular case).

Or, as Hanlon's Razor would have it, "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity".

This notion of the umpires or the AFL being biased against us is as nonsensical as the supposed curse afflicting us and is a symptom of a pathetic, self-pitying victim mentality.

We are better than that, as evidenced by Goodwin's refusal to blame the umpiring at the end of the Crows game.

And the stats would say that we do ok relative to other clubs (this was at Round 8)...

You are both watching different games to me then  fellas.  There's alot of hate out there for the Demons and it ripples through the AFL community like a cancer. 

If you want to hide under a blanket that's your choice.  Last week's two non-decisions toward the end effectively cost us the match.  But let's pretend it never happened.  All will be well if we just close our eyes and pray!

In which case, as we have a differential of +15, Richmond must be absolutely despised, with a differential of -50!

Genuinely curious... I just assumed there was apathy...

What's the hate about Rusty?

How is it evidenced throughout the AFL community?

Maybe so, but the point I was making is that the umpires stuffed up and it's not a symptom of some giant conspiracy or bias against MFC.  Stop being a sook.

The last one wasn't a stuff up...the umpire in question admitted the free kick was there and he decided not to pay it.

A link to the quote from said umpire would be nice... are you sure he wasn’t saying that upon watching a replay of the incident, that the free probably was there?

It’s funny you say that. I’m positive a read a poster (can’t remember who it was) but before the Adelaide game they wouldnt be surprised if Adelaide won, if it meant that we’d beat the bulldogs the week after, or something along those lines. I thought at the time, yeah I’d have to agree. Who was that?

It might have been me who wrote that.

I said I’d take a loss to Adelaide if it meant we’d beat the Dogs. I certainly didn’t expect to lose to Adelaide though.

The conspiracy theory argument is your concoction DS.

I'm just saying the hate/loathing is there and there's alot if it about.  That it manifests in various forms, including bias by some umpires, commentators (eg BT) etc along the way

No one other than yourself is claiming it's a conspiracy where everyone is in on the act.

Example of your OOT accusation...I did not say the whole of Chanel 9... i referred to one football show.

He swapped a high 5 with Gus in 2018! after NOT paying a clear deliberate out of bounds by Gus. In front of members stand too.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives.
