there’s some beauty’s

Disgraceful.
When you think we can’t be more putrid we find anew level.
 

What a poor effort
Looks like pick 4 in the draft. Let’s hope the club doesn’t stuff up that selection 
We’re a joke

 

Seriously, why be shocked? We have some of the weakest payers both physically and mentally in the competition. Feel sorry for Steele. He looked so shattered in the end.


I tell ya. It’s much better when you stop giving a s***. I have and honestly, I seriously don’t care if they lose. In fact in the last qtr I was willing Adelaide to win.
Simply because I don’t want any more half arsed, lame,,[censored] poor wins that cover up just what a farkin shambles of a club we are. 
Root and branch changes required. Until then they can [censored] off.

They were a better team when he was in it last year. Must be a long term injury.

They were a better team last year irrespective of whether Kent was there or not. The fact is that Kent has never really cemented a place even when he  was fit. Just one of those not quite near players. A bit like a lot on their list

Yes we were done over by the maggots in the last few plays, but we should never have allowed them back into range after mid Q4, with our superior fitness. 
IMO the defence looked disorganized … missed Salem more than realized.  
And overall a team only needs to be a little bit off and … bingo. 
Just hope we have learned from the experience (Goody’s “learnings”) and don’t let it happen again.

Will need to be right on song on Monday.

Colonwood will either be flat as a pancake in which case we should be relentless to boost %, or really switched on and will take a full team effort to overcome  

And, yes … Adelaide very ordinary tonight. 

Fully agree. We need to ready for Collingwood on Monday

How come Dean Kent can't get a game for that rabble?

Kents suffering effects of concussion.

That game reminds me of our 2019 loss to Adelaide in Darwin. Up by 5 or 6 goals in the 3rd qtr and then couldn’t hit the side of barn door.

Saints are definitely having a Melbourne esque 2019 season.

In no way am I having a go at you personally dees189227, but I am getting sick of the clarko is a genius stuff.

He is a great coach and has clearly done well with all the flags, but I love how they beat the swans and he is a genius (you said it, but also all the papers and radio have run with it today).

Just wondering how much of a genius he has been for the remainder of the games they have played this year?

Just a little gripe of mine.

Sydney were flatter than a Lebanese bread. No run or spark at all.

There has been some games of horrible quality this weekend ☹

Got to hand it to Clarko. he is a genius they way he plans for games. As some of the media said clarko has had 10 days to plan for this and how to beat Sydney. It is a good win. 

Jai Newcombe 12 tackles in his first game after getting taken in the mid season draft a few weeks ago. There is a kid that just wants to play footy and will grab his chance and make the most of his opportunity. 

Clarko wasn’t a genius when he lost to the Suns the week before.

Very depressing for Saints supporters. That last quarter so poor on many levels. Ratten has his work cut out. 

Ernest - all of us here must feel their pain.  We have been through as bad, or worse.

I presume injured?
Ratten said this week they had 25 fit players on the list so could just fill a team sheet. He was happy they could name 4 emergencies. 

No doubt injured, again. 
No found someone could find out how many games he has played out if how many possibles in his chequered career.  Best guess 30-30%?

Why don't the commentators call out throws? Are they directed to turn a blind eye to this, or are they just stupid? (Or both?)

Definitely both - some more in one category, some in others, but all meet qualifying standard in both categories

Weird game, St.Kilda dominating a hopeless Crows contrived to become even more hopeless themselves in the second half.

Could be argued that Saints are having our 2019. Finals the year before and then talked up big by the media. Come into the year chock full of expectations and then have an unmitigated run of bad luck through injuries. Confidence is shot. I reckon they will bounce back in ‘22. Ratten can coach.

They didn't do so last year, so why would they do it this year?... unless of course you subscribe to the AFL and Media hate the Dees conspiracy.

Yesterdays Crows/Saints game is the fourth game result corrupted by poor late umpires decision making. That free paid to Thilthorpe in the goal square is unbelievable. There is no way that was free kick. That was the kind of spoil seen a dozens of times every game and it’s just play on.

Just listened to an interview with Jeff Kennett. Was asked about Alistair Clarkson and, as always, made it all about Jeff. I’ve seen this skill within the workplace but he’s a master. It was apparent that he wanted to lessen Clarkson’s achievements and talk up his own (overstated) efforts.

Let’s hope he stays in control of the Hawthorn FC. 
Apologies for slightly left field comment

Can we rename GMBH to Zimmer Stadium yet?

I think about the only player they are missing is Cam Guthrie who is closing on 29 and probably replaces 22yo Brad Close so they can go older still ...

nice to see the aints pullout all stops and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory......outstanding all round team effort

and once again the umps kissed the crows' proverbials 

Saints had their chances and blew it, just like we did.

That free kick in the goal square thou, was that worse than the deliberate none call in our game?

The umpires explanation “you prevented  him from marking? WTF

    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

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    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

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    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

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    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. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
