Things are becoming more convoluted by the hour for the AFL and the continuation of the competition must be regarded as in jeopardy.

In a worst case scenario and the season had to be terminated now, if the AFL awarded the premiership to the top of the ladder team, would you accept it?

ABSOLUTELY NOT

Worst case scenario is that finals are moved interstate, which I think is still a real possibility. 

Vic 22 today. This is results from infections 3-14 days prior yes? (Not sure of delta incubation to symptoms, so feel free to correct me). Will get worse before better.

QLD or WA I think.

Without a finals Series, we haven’t won anything. 
 

it will be remembered as a “good” season 

That can be satisfying to a point; if the rollover season for 2022 is more normal, that GF would be the one to win. We have had a season to prepare for a blockbuster 2022 one would think. It will never happen, but a great 2022 season would be very satisfying when it came around, almost compensatory.

With 110 new cases in NSW. It will not be in Sydney for another 6 weeks 

Agree

The families of the Sydney teams are relocating to Qld today. They are required to do 14 days quarantine.

This would not even be considered if they thought the teams might return to Sydney in the next 5-6 weeks.

I am struggling to care about football at the moment. The chances of going to a game are close to zero and the Dees have decided to return to 2020 form and results. Reading has become my favourite sport and Monopoly with my GD is running a close second at present. 2021 is dead I am looking to a better 2022.

I am not unhappy Mr. Leg just cannot find any joy out of watching football. The country is so messed up by the Covid problems that football seems unimportant.

Agree, but you need a distraction from the current problems.

The COVID stuff is draining but jeepers, "return to 2020 form and results"?

We've lost a grand total of zero consecutive matches. One draw, the week after belting a top 4 side on their home ground. And we're top of the [censored] ladder!

I have shut the door on 2021. Second jab on the 30th. Then isolation till some sanity arrives hopefully in future years. The only interest I have is my family.

Ha, this country has not even had a pandemic. I have friends in other countries who have lost family and every single person they know has had the virus. This is nothing. Seriously, its just attitude.

Be thankful you live in such a safe place.

Look at what you have got and not what you dont.

Just reading your posts in this thread is depressing.   Go play monopoly with your GD.....posting with such negativity about the Demons when they are top of the ladder and approaching finals IS madness.  IF you are not interested in the footy why are you on a football forum discussing your lack of interest?   Makes no sense at all.

I for one are thankful we have footy to distract us in these times.   It is one of the few things that i find to be a healthy distraction from Covid....I am sure many other passionate supporters feel the same

Go easy, mate. OD is venting and that’s one of the reasons we join a fan forum; footy or not. 
I personally agree with you in that footy is a very welcome distraction from covid and all the other ills of the world. But I wouldn’t tell anyone else to feel that way or to stop posting if they feel otherwise. ?

    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
