The Lions are cooked. What a waste of money Daniher is. Lazy footballer.

Lazy, and really really dumb.

Good result tonight.

If we go 4-2 for the rest of the year, we sow up a top 3 spot and avoid a week 1 interstate trip.

The destiny is well and truly in our own hands and we only have ourselves to blame if we drop games to one or more of Hawthorn, GC , West coast or Adelaide.

Yes he is - and he has lots of company.

Tonight James Brayshaw described the way in which Harris Andrews knocked the ball over the boundary line as being "laconic".

BT, in his infinite wisdom, agreed. "Yes that was laconic". 

Brayshaw is a serial offender - could someone please direct him to dictionary.com. He may well stop embarrassing himself should he learn the meaning of the word.

Guy hasn't won the hardball when a match was on the line in his career. At least 2/3 of his career goals must have been in junk-time.

I take from your comments you don't like him, and he isn't my favourite by a long stretch, but I think this is way off the mark.

Richmond did us a favour this week and thankyou. However they will come a cropper against geelong and no longer be relevant for the year. If we finish 3rd does not matter as it will be against bulldogs or that rubbish from geelong. Don't want to play the bears or Port at their home grounds.

Yeah, that’s right… he only kicked those six goals and played a brilliant 300th game, because he wanted all of the attention ??

What a ridiculous comment! The guy is an absolute star!

You don’t watch a lot of games other than Dees games, do you.

Look sure, it was a dumb comment. He's a great player, but I'm still entitled to dislike the guy. Joel Selwood's a gun too, but I can't stand him either!

His off-field persona just puts me off. I still remember his comments last year decrying how outrageous it was that players were asked to take a modest paycut to keep the AFL afloat, while coaches and support staff were losing their jobs entirely (not to mention how tone-deaf it was at a time when so many ordinary people were losing jobs and businesses were going broke). Really sullied my opinion of the guy, that's all.

35 minutes ago, whatwhat say what said:

riewoldt has been, and remains, one of the best key forwards in the competition for a long, long time

we picked frawley the pick before he was selected, i seem to recall?

Yes, and for a while we thought we were the winners in that one. 

Maybe the compo pick from Frawley helps balance it a bit.

I'll be happy if Brisbane finish third or fourth. They lack leadership, pace and midfield depth. We have them easily covered.

As an aside I'd love McCluggage to announce he wants to return to Victoria and nominate the Dees. Great player.

A lot of results have gone our way over the last couple of rounds. We have a real opportunity to lock in a top two or top four spot.

He took a couple big marks early in the 1st Grand Final win.
Missed the shots but he was huge getting them going.
Earned abit of my respect that game.

Fair enough; I didn’t have any issue with your opinion of him as an individual, but thought your targeting of his abilities as a player were way off the mark.

Right result for us last night. Reckon us Cats and Doggies will finish top 3 now and avoid the inter-state qualifying final (although who knows where and even when we'll be playing finals).

Riewoldt has had a stellar career. 300 games and 700+ goals speaks for itself. He deserved to play and celebrate his great achievement at the G last night

He's also a sook and a crybaby and has played in one of the most dislikeable teams ever to grace the game (and as for his advice to Kozzie earlier in the season - he can stick it)

What we have to worry about is reduced seating capacity due to Covid may see a final played in Geelong , so we definitely don’t want them finishing above us.

Great day of footy coming up. We've an interest in all the games.

saints are playing well so hopefully can get up against port.

Suns are in great touch and are a chance to spring a surprise against the doggies. If they can get the job done i might even change my mind about disbanding them

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
