Just saw this appear on my feed good explanation of what went on at the centre bounce, this kind of stuff I find impossible to pickup in real time.

 

This is great analysis. Thanks

One note. The guy narrating is a bit slow/boring so suggest you increase the speed to 1.5X or 1.75X under settings....

100% it was not written by the fable singers in 1972. 

Hundred and ten percent, Cassie!😉 I read somewhere that it was first sung by the team in 1912, and that Bluey Truscott wrote the '39 verse. I'm thinking they meant 'arranged' or probably 'performed' - 1972 was about the time technology would have allowed 'quality' broadcast at games and the VFL would have been jumping on it and getting 'official' versions for the purpose (such simple days...). I just included the entry verbatim to clarify 'old' was in the written lyrics, not just evident in the recording.

The more I watch it the more Angus stands out. Game of his life. Unflinching, played it like his last game, and when you think any game seriously could be his last, his courage was/is outstanding. 
Just took hits, stood in holes, laid bumps, ran all [censored] day. 
The mark speaks for itself. But I love the angles he runs in on like a cheeky bugger that makes the shot a whole lot easier. 
 

Inspirational stuff. 

Puts to shame all the posters on this site who wanted him gone, said he was no good, and brought him up as trade bait.

But then again, what's new.

Looked through that video, very forensic analysis of the centre square battle. My takes were Gawn just smashed the opposition rucks to set up our take aways in the 4th Q to put the game beyond doubt. In the 3rd Jackson managed to break even in the ruck contests but was able to follow up on the ground to great effect. And Viney was too strong inside for Treloar or Libba and was able to get the ball out to our receivers to devastating effect. And then we had 2 other bull, ball magnets in Tracc and Oliver. No team could stop that combo I believe.

The analyst showed how the dogs tried to counter the onslaught over the last 2 quarters but it was all futile.

Even HRH is celebrating

Damn. There’s no sound on this clip. Just imagine QE2 singing Simply The Best. 
I received this from a friend in Qld and I’ve spent ages trying to work out how to post it on here. I’m halfway there. Just gotta work out why there’s no sound.

Could have been worse....remember when Adelaide sang

I like the idea of us having a rival.

Let's tell it like it is. Our rivalry with Collingwood hasn't really been relevant for 50 to 60 years. Even with us being strong now, the stars haven't aligned to make that rivalry meaningful for the time being due to them rebuilding.

The stuff about the song might be overrated but I do get the feeling there is some mutual dislike there.

Libba was carrying on like a faux tough guy and trash talker for most of the GF. In the round 20 match up, the sledge that Gus laid on Hannan about 'thinking about all those cold winter afternoons down at Casey' was pretty brutal, and Hannan proceeded to push him over. Mayzie also proceeded to iron out Hannan during the GF. Also let's not forget Watts' and Bugg's 'You ready?' Instagram post aimed at Johannisen.

Now the sailor moon buns have long gone someone has asked me at work if I’ve “come down” yet. Not by a long shot. The AFL may be moving on to new news, but to me it’s still all about the 2021 AFL premiership

Think that's just Libba!

That's the first I heard of that Gus sledge, no wonder there was some carry on. Glad we got the last laugh.

But agreed, it will be good to have rival. I didn't like some of the class divide that people tried to build up in the lead to the GF.

"Halfway there" ??? You must be living on a prayer.

Whenever I thought about the GF in the 2weeks prior this is all I could see.
These boys smashing the "bat deeper' Bulldogs mids.
There was no way they were gonna cope with our power outta the middle.

Then I'd think about the backs.
Lever, May, Petty, Rivers, Hibberd were all gonna be too good for Naughton and Weightman.

Then I'd go and think about the forwards.
Brown, Fritta , Pickett, Tmac ...... Gawn.
Easten Wood and his no-name mates were never gonna stop those boys.

Wings .... Langers an Brayshaw relentlessly running up and down the ground.
Gawd ....

Then ANB, Sparrow, Harmes all chiming in.
We was never gonna lose.

My only surprise was the 2nd qtr.
Never saw that coming at all.

Did that really happen? Is this real? Am I dreaming?

I’m SO pleased to hear this! I wasn’t sure if it is ‘normal’ to still be in disbelief 11 days after the fact. At least twice a day I stop and think, ‘bloody hell, we actually won the flag!’ Or ‘WE are the reigning Premiers’ or similar. I don’t know how long this will continue, but I have a feeling it’s not gonna wane anytime soon. ❤️💙

    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

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
