NON MFC: Rd 13 2021



Recommended Posts

I blame Tim Kelly for this whole thing! He goes to any other club first and the cats don’t have the picks they’ve used to bring in players that have made them substantially better. It’s so irritating that he ended up being such a gun as a mature age player - and got them so many picks after just 2 years in their system. They did nothing to develop the guy and it kissed them on the [censored].

Richmond are a massive threat even from 8th. Geelong on their sheer experience alone are a scary finals proposition. Brisbane can also do serious damage and are very well balanced all over the ground. 
I don’t rate the Dogs or Port because they are poor defensively and don’t know what to do when the game is not played on their terms. Both will make finals and both will probably win a few but they won’t make the grand final. Port especially if they don’t get a home final. 
West Coast and Sydney making up numbers. 

Richmond scare me more than anyone although I think our midfield and rucks are superior to both them and Geelong. 

Look at Richmond's draw from here. They've been given an absolute platter.

They can easily slot into top 4.

It’s pretty tough for Richmond as they are likely competing with Lions, Port, and Sydney for 4th who have similar runs home. Games against other top 8 teams remaining is below.

Richmond - 3

Port - 3

Sydney - 3

Lions - 3

WC - 5

Geelong - 4

Melbourne - 4

Dogs - 5

Cameron was BoG for me. Great game. Hawkins is very good. 

but to put Rohan in their league and call it a 3 pronged attack? Please. Rohan is a hack. Gets on the end of a few. That is all

That's not looking at the team aspect DD.

Rohan is a very skilled (if underwhelming at times). But with the 2 big bananas he has the third defender ( similar to Fritsch) and is hard to match.up on.

He will have his  best season this year and Geelong are right in this premiership mix due to Cameron and the flow on effect for the forward line.

You underestimate Rohan's role and presence at your peril ( just like Fritta).

Be warned the evidence is starting to look you in the eye.

Credit to Geelong, they are well coached and know how to win. They're a threat but i believe our defence and system trumps they're firepower

Put a line through Port as a contender. Defense no where near good enough

yeah my dislike for them is probably clouding my judgement.  They have been up for 16 bloody years. although they havent won it in 10.

losing to them in a GF I am not sure I could take.  bunch of oiled up wankers

Do either team know how to defend?  Geelongs rubbish hb possession game and port still can’t set up.  Geelong holding and cheating all game (got called start of the 4th).  Port letting its two key oppo targets roam unmanned. High scoring but little system wide defending.

The game last night reminded me of a 1980's game where both sides kicked 22 goals. Crap defence on both sides. 

I hope the AFL are strategically looking at how to improve the standard of umpiring, including simplification of the rules (it can't just be poor judgement by all of them). These are supposed to be the best umpires in the country. I find myself screaming at the TV for non-Melbourne games now, which is my lowest point.

Another bird battle tonight

Swans V Hawks

Hard to get excited but I will probably watch the second half if Hawks are ten plus points up

PS Just saw that Geoff Edelsten died... quite a character .. is an understatement

It's not the rules its the way the umpires are coached to "interpret" them.

Frankenstein looks cooked … enjoying Frosty working him over, but how long can it last.

    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 comm

    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
