I do that every morning when I greet the boys at work 😂
They reply by yelling "OLIVER".
And I give 'em the 1 finger salute.

This a ripper photo and pretty much the theme all year. The joy on their faces when a teammate has kicked a goal, not many instances throughout the season where a player on their own in a better position has felt aggrieved when bypassed for a shot at goal. 

Genuine happiness for teammates, each goal is worth a viewing of 4-5 times on the GF replay just to see the reactions in the background. One of my favourites is Spargo on his own in the goal square jumping and fist pumping the air.

Yeah, a bloody brilliant run down. Dunstall really struggling. Like many Hawthorn people, he can barely hide his disdain.

So true. He said before the prelim “I hope the Dees beat Geelong, so we can watch them completely gas it in the Grand final” 

Bad luck Jase! And many more years of pain to come for you

Particularly liked his long goal duringour blitz, his longkick to the advantage of BB and his kick to Fritta in the goal square in the first qtr

Clever and skillful

He was immense. It becomes more apparent with each viewing. 
 

And it should be noted that his kick to Fritta in the goal square would have been a pretty insane goal of his own if Fritta elected to let it through.

Imagine being a Dogs fan and seeing that? I’d be filthy. He has also been pictured out partying with the Melbourne players. 

Yes I saw those posts too.  Its indeed a new world.  On the one hand its nice to see people enjoying themselves, these are difficult times, but for someone my age its hard to fathom the GF horror being brushed away so easily by a dogs player.  But I'm gradually learning, each to their own I suppose.

 

(Although I'd probably be far less forgiving if it was one of our own after a loss!)

I’d cut him some slack. He’s a young man letting his hair down. I hate the way footy fans expect players to act like they’re at a funeral after they lose a game. Just because we’re emotionally unbalanced and tie our complete mental well-being to our footy team, doesn’t mean the players should. And this was obviously some time afterwards, seeing as it is in a night club.

Fair dinkum, who cares.

A bit of Sunday morning poetry for you all.

 

Remember, remember
Twenty-fifth of September
Firepower, awe and shock

I see no reason
Why Melbourne's fine season
Should ever be forgot

 

Recall, recall
Petracca's great goal
and Sparrow's and Clarry's on top

I see no way
How Melbourne's big day
Can ever be forgot

Derm hates Melbourne but Dunstable doesn’t at all, horrible call.

I can't wait to see Derm have to offer us praise next year and not backhanded compliments either like he has in the past. Having to admit we are a genuinely good, tough team with mental resilience will just about break his reality.

He's a total meathead. Can't see it happening.

And I don't care what he thinks/says.

Was looking at some stats and noticed Sparrow only had 66% game time.

He played a blinder. Really like his hardness and he kicks like a mule.

Mature mindset and body - and will get better.

I have to admit, I couldn’t believe Binman’s 47 point win tip and was very skeptical. Not that we wouldn’t win, but by such a large margin. Hats off to you @binman. You had the analysis and the belief!

Somebody on here predicted the Deez by 10 goals and the Norm Smith medalist.

Maybe Bailey has some friends at the MFC or he has a desire to join the red and the blue.

Isnt he mates with Tracca?  (Or do I have the wrong Bailey...or Smith)

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
