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.

Yes that was a real head scratcher.

But I heard over summer here that Ratten is a coaching genius and St.Kilda have zoomed past us with their inspired recruiting, despite the fact that we beat them last year?

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

    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
