GAMEDAY: AFLW Rd 09 vs Fremantle



Recommended Posts


Best performance I’ve ever seen from any AFLW team!   I so much want us to be AFL and AFLW champions, and this is becoming real possibility.  It seems to be coming together at the pointy end of the season for our AFLW team, just as it did for our men in 2021.

Gone tonight were the one metre ‘get me out of trouble’ hand passes.

In tonight we’re precision hand passes to a team mate in better position.  

Brilliant!

Well, sometimes when things click, they really click.

105 points in AFLW is about equivalent to 160 points in the traditional game length. The fact that we left at least 5 goals on the park makes it all the more incredible. Complete domination, with a definite asterisk on it, but you can only play the team in front of you. Next week we could be just as diminished.

Loved Colvin's game early when it was there to be won.

Wasn’t that awesome to watch. Stinear has our team playing exhilarating footy a la the boys, highly entertaining. Moving from Fremantle oval to Optus Stadium was a win for us, our skills in windless conditions excelled.  Also Meggs wanted everyone to know that Freo had a few late withdrawals due to Covid as you may not have heard…

Hoping Zanker is ok as we need her on ball and  second ruck work.  It’s either Scotty or Parry and Demonland prefers Shelley over Jacqui.

West and Purcell have allowed Paxy to play wing and it works better.  Our multi-faceted forward line has kicked the highest score on AFLW history. It will be our 2022 finals weapon!

Collingwood to upset Adelaide tomorrow and we finish on top with a potential grand final at Casey…Meggs likes the sound of that.

ps we still need to defeat Carlton next week at Casey Fields.

What a win record breaking stuff. If that doesn't give you confidence nothing will. We are definitely a flag threat now. Adelaide seem to be the only threat if we can stop Phillips and Marinoff we can definitely  win the flag.

That was the most amazing display of women’s football I’ve seen. In fact, it was equal to some men’s games. The ball movement was superb. Accurate passing. A few weeks ago I was critical of the field kicking of a number of players. I now firmly believe the poor grounds and wind at Casey contributes to poor standards. The Dees love Optus Stadium. Well done girls.

The season is shaping beautifully

They were depleted and we took full advantage. A complete, 4 quarter, ruthless performance. A joy to watch

That should be the home prelim sown up now. I can't see us losing against Carlton and I don't think the Lions will make up the percentage given they have a North and the doggies to play. North definitely won't make it up

Top spot and home finals all the way is a real possibility now. I'll be cheering on the pies today v the Crows (and taking a long shower afterwards). If they can at least be competitive and keep the scores close it will reduce the Crows percentage. 

Hoping for calm conditions next Saturday evening at Casey and some more accurate kicking

Go Dees

That was the highest standard of AFLW I've seen.  Some of that ball movement in the 3rd was poetry in motion.  The run from behind was elite, and it just got better and better as the confidence grew.  Hopefully that confidence sticks around for the rest of the  season.  Play like that and we will be very, very hard to beat.

How was Gillard omitted? 

Thought she was excellent last week.

Young body not up to repeat efforts, didn't fit team structures, or just not able to commit as not full time athletes.

None of that her time will come 

Colvin match hardened and stronger although smaller I too was surprised but never fear Tahlia is  tracking very nicely.

North look too far behind on % to dislodge us from top 2.

Lions are the only likely threat but everything would need to go right for them:  two huge wins vs North and Bulldogs plus we lose to Carlton.  North and Bulldogs (if Coll lose today) have a lot to play for so don't see those games as easy wins for the Lions.

It would be nice to for Coll to get over the Crows today.

Overjoyed with our win. 

Very impressed with field kicking and the distances our girls were able to kick it. 

Feel a bit sorry for Freo.  Hope we don't meet them in the finals - they will be out for revenge and are good enough to extract it.  But if we do it will be at Casey; our fortress!!

The best I’ve ever seen them play. Sustained pressure for the entire match. My girl Eden had thigh issues but geez whenever she gets near the ball it’s “get excited “ time. ❤️💙

    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
