Sorry,  getting in early here.

Some tasty and meaningful matches for neutral Melbourne supporter this weekend.

Im actually quite worried about the Cats, as we obviously played them without Cameron, so my preference is for a Port win.

I’d also rather West Coast to miraculously win against Richmond whilst being injury depleted. 
 

Im not sure which permeate room suits us better in throes matches?

You know you're having a bad season when a draw increases your percentage by 3%.

I'd go as far to say it's impossible. 😂

Stick that up ya Jack Reiwoldt you [censored] gronk!

Depends how optimistic you are re the rest of the MFC season

If you're into insurance mode you want the interstate teams to lose thus minimising the chance of a first final interstate.

A counter thought to this theory is which team is more likely to overtake us.

Very difficult as all three of Geelong, Brisbane and Port are on 32 points at present.

Port..simply because the Geelong inclusions may not be match fit and Eagles for the fun of it.

Out of port and Girlong who really cares.  Hopefully though I hope Girlong miss out on a top 4 position.

Port are an interesting team. They are missing the speed and youth of Butters and Dursma. Their team looks slow in the midfield without them.  I expect their form to turn around and Dixon to kick a few bags soon. I expect Port to be our biggest threat by the end of the year

The Cats I still don't rate, but they keep proving me wrong. hopefully the next 3 weeks the Cats get found out

Depends upon who or where you would rather play (only if we have to play an away qualifying match if we lost form dramatically Which won't happen)

Adelaide Oval (Port)

Marvel (Dogs) possible MCG 

GMBH (Cats) probable MCG 

Gabba (Lions

MCG (Tigers)

Personally I would not be phased with any but Cats at GMBH straight after around 23 might be a double up opportunity to good to miss out on!!

Ya! Me too @JTR - but some folk on here give it some really good analysis - which isn't my bag to design, but love reading it.

 

Mind you - 3 weeks in a row (and after beating The Bulldogs and Brisbane) THIS still happens!!

Interesting...

On that scenario Geelong would play its first final at Kardinia Park... Geelong v WC

Could also result in no matches at all in Vic in the second round of the finals

Bulldogs to lose only one match going forward (presumably against us) is an interesting prediction. You may also have underestimated Brisbane by a game or two.

Fascinating though and thanks

Jeepers @Engorged Onion you're clearly a fan of what the Dogs are doing if you've got them only losing one match out of Geelong (in Geelong), West Coast (in Perth), Sydney, us (at the MCG) and Port Adelaide!

Having said that, there's not a huge difference between finishing 1st or 2nd, but there is a massive difference between finishing 2nd or 3rd when two of the next three best sides are Brisbane and Port.

Melb Fc unlocked the  Dogs in their most emphatic performance for the year and I think other quality teams will/could do the same. Dogs being on top is a bit Over The Top.

On this theory I have the dogs only winning 5 more games. Port Bombers Dees Eagles and Geelong will all be tricky for them.

If that beat that then well done to Beveridge to re-set strategy a bit.

watch the Geelong tactics against the Port kick out. Have not noticed this one before

Geelong using two players on the mark to prevent the Port kicker from playing on.

Excellent tactic against teams that like to kick deep such as ourselves

Tell ya what, both teams defensive efforts are pretty dismal. Fun to watch a shootout tho. 
Rozee is not a bad player! 
 

Let’s go Port. My hatred for Geelong cannot be explained in words.

Selwood getting done for holding the ball is maybe my favorite moment in football each week. Except for when Danger flops and doesn’t get a free. 
 

Port look good. Geelong look old. Can’t run with Port. I’m excited for when they all retire and become Hawthorn 2.0.

    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. Were th

    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
