Nothing else to do so let's watch footy!

I was hoping we might be a chance to be top by the end of this round but Giants who should be desperate for a spot in the finals have made 6 changes including 2 key players as 'managed'.  are they tanking? what a joke.  the Cats will smash them

Bombers might be a chance against the dags if they have an off day

Punting wise, I reckon North as worth a go, at least at the line.  Freo always tough to beat at home and will give the bears a run for their money

Artistic group swimming is on at the Olympics tonight.

Beats the hell out of watching Geelong beat GWS! 

Hoping Adelaide can cause an upset in the showdown, but now their [censored] ex- captain is suspended due to being a racist loser, it's going to be tough.

Also hoping Essendon can cause an upset over the Dogs.

I give St Kilda absolutely no chance to beat Sydney. 

The rest of the games are boring and irrelevant. Thank god for the Olympics and several hundred streaming services during lockdown.

Besides our game I think Richmond VS North and Freo Vs Brisbane are the most interesting. 

Freo can keep their top 8 spot whilst Brisbane have been struggling. Who will take their opportunity?

North have been competitive and building well, Richmond are getting some names back.
Prestia was back to his usual last week and they really need McIntosh and Vlaustin back into that line up. 

Geelong should take care of GWS easily (PS: How is Quintin Narkle not a regular in that team? would love to pick him up)

Port should take care of Adelaide easily without their racist captain. Wont win another game for the year. 

Carlton should beat the suns easily if they play with pressure, but its Carlton so :shrug:

Too many outs for St Kilda, No Marshall no Billings, No Howard. Buddy could get off the chain here

Hawthorn V Collingwood should be a competitive match, whoever wins the contested ball will win, I think Hawthorn just have the better midfield.

Bulldogs with Trelor back in will take care of the Heppell-less dons. Dons just aren't good enough for long enough and their forward line is the worst in the comp.
 
And then theres us, going up against West Coast which has been absoletly smashed in the media all week and Had DV retire. They should be fired up to compete against us, and we want our last top 8 scalp.

Most things that Geelong do personnel wise confuse me, this is no exception.

Sydney are due a loss after 5 straight wins.

But what about the notion that success breeds success that people bang on about on here...

GWS will provide more evidence tonight to justify their moniker, Great Waste of Space

Can't see any surprises. Sydney Port Doggies Cats will all win comfortably. Don't care about the other games

Fair comment.

It's just that if Sydney are winning the flag this year they're probably going to have to go 12-0  (from round 16 onwards) which is extremely rare in not just the AFL but in all sports. 

Going full pelt for the entirety of July and August isn't a recipe for success.

I'm hoping some patchy form by the Dees in June/July might re-ignite some hunger, which was on show for most of last week.

  • Demonland changed the title to NON MFC: Rd 21 2021

Extraordinary situation at the GWS Giants with injuries. Josh Kelly has now withdrawn with a quad injury which means they’ve made eight changes from last week's loss to Port Adelaide - Phil Davis (concussion), Jacob Hopper (concussion), Shane Mumford (back), Jesse Hogan (soreness), Tom Green (hamstring) Daniel Lloyd (ankle) and Sam Reid (ankle) already ruled out during the week.

Would have been handy a month ago when we played them.

Absolutely! Plus finals and grand finals aren't played at Kardinia so if we happen to come up short that game it isn't the end of the world :)

If i could take one player from another team to play for the Dees it would be Toby Greene. Perfect combination of silk and mongrel

Exceptionally gifted but a tad too much mongrel for mine.

Ps Bt is an [censored].

    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
