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. 
 

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

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.

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.  

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

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

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.  

 

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

De Goey isn't even fit to look him in the eye now!

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

De Goey ripped us apart that day too.

2018 was a long time ago.

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".

    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
