What they're saying down at Lulie Street



Recommended Posts

Death, taxes and opposition fans unequivocally respecting and fearing Max Gawn.   

Other than Dusty, there's a not a player in the comp given such unanimous regard.

It doesn't seem very long ago that footy commentators were wondering if tracc could be our de goey. Gone straight past him

I love cucumber sandwiches. Just today I had one with sweet baby Lebanese on homemade sourdough adorned with sumptuous organic butter, but augmented it with some aged Italian parmesan shavings and gar

Please, please pick Cox.

No thanks.

I still wake up in cold sweats thinking about that game when the American kicked 5 goals against us in 2018 -  and that he could do it again one day.

Don't care if we win this by one point. Just get to the bye 12 and 1. That psychological break on the rest of the top 4 will be massive. I'm hoping the Bulldogs drop a game or two in the next month too.

He was listed as two-three (which includes the bye) so I'd say not.  He's their most valuable asset and has had neck problems in the past.  They'll take no chances with him if there is any doubt at all.

He looked bloody sore running around at training on one the AFL website vids, but there's a lot of time for him to come good.

De Goey goes missing when a little accountability is placed on him. Hibberd will school him when forward and he’s not a concern in the middle for mine.

The game that still makes me angry was round 23 2017. Collingwood had nothing to play for except ruin our chance to play finals and they did exactly that. Our worst H&A defeat in my 15 years following the team given the context and manner of our performance. I'm surprised the pies fans don't mention it more often. If roles were reversed and we denied them finals in the same way we would never let them forget about it. 

We've come a long way since then thankfully. It wouldn't happen today and won't happen on QB. I expect a regulation 5 goal win.

Petracca is up there. Oliver too but people seem to hate him.

If lock down is lifted Centrelink is going to get absolutely smashed with requests for advanced payments so that Collingwood supporters can try and fly up to see the game.

May the gulf in their respective output and performance grow every week - Trac has a chance to put that debate to bed well and truly this Monday - Love to see him rip them to pieces

It all started with a contested mark on the wing... when he gets confidence is momentum is impossible to stop

Just got a shiver

The 25k radius might stop them but it might not, for a Pie supporter 'radius' is a big word to comprehend.

Good point you make @binman...although to me it seems like a long time ago, such has been Petracca's consistency.

A friend of mine ( a Hawks fan ) and his wife ( a Collingwood supporter) have an 18 month old son and they're debating which team the little bloke should follow. 

I said to him " Well Stephen, your son has very few teeth and he can't string a sentence together. He seems to fit the profile of the typical Pies fan to me. "

Problem solved !

there is no doubt the pies are going to lift hard for Bucks

I think there's considerable doubt as expressed by many other learned posters on this forum.  They may come out flat and deflated after using up all their emotional energy in the days leading up to the game.

As a postscript, why have you felt the need to to change your username no fewer than eleven times?  It makes it hard to know who is posting when people keep doing this or changing their avatars all the time.

Coupled with the fact AF that 12 wins is a pass mark for finals. We can use this fact to both setup and subsequently come back from the break with a mindset for actions to get us deep into September, rather than "we still have to get there".

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
