GAMEDAY: AFLW Preliminary Final vs Brisbane Lions

I think there’d be more than a few that were disappointed with that crowd. Free entry, first crack at finals, grand final on the line. I understand it was really miserable weather but I didn’t feel the club and the AFL pumped it up enough. 

I would’ve hoped for 10k+ in these circumstances. 

Anyway I’ll go to positive now, what a great achievement for the girls and club. So proud of them, they played like the MFC across the board. We have built a culture and that goes from Casey Mens, to AFLW, to the mens team. So glad a few of the boys were there to watch it. 

McNamara’s goal could’ve been our best of the weekend were it not for Langdon. Paxman was tireless as always, and Bannan has some serious jets on her. Adelaide are a very good side and as I speak seem to be doing a number on Freo, so hopes of a home GF look extremely unlikely. But either way we are in it, and if we play our best it stacks up. 

What a great time our club is having. Keep your eye on the red and blue! 

I thought it was a disappointing crowd. There was plenty of Lions supporters there as well, reckon the Dees contingent was no more than 4,000

having the mens game the night before had an impact. I couldn;t go to both so chose the womens prelim but most would have chosen the Essendon game. Pity it wasn't played on a weekend when the men were inter-state

Real pity it’s not played in spring in clear air but that’s hopefully getting fixed soon.

Also we have to wonder if the Casey crowd won’t go to the G and the G crowd never get to Casey so we don’t build a following.

But again, that’s another more complex issue 

It was disappointing no matter the excuses

I definitely agree that the men playing the night before negativity impacted the crowd. I know many people would’ve made the call that they could only get to one match for the weekend, so I can’t begrudge that. I also agree that if the guys were interstate it would’ve been a very different story.

Agree wholeheartedly on disappointing crowd. It’s national representative footy and deserves better. Will happen, but too slow for mine. Was a great atmosphere at the game (Warney Stand) and the footy was tough, hard-fought stuff. Frustrated me that the Lions so often waited for us to take possession, just waiting to lay tackles, then to be rewarded by some poor umpiring. Congrats to the mighty Dees, who rose above it, they were fantastic. Alyssa Bannan gets my excited anticipation going like watching Kozzie Pickett, and when she runs away from opponents it goes through the roof. She’s a gun. Fabulous stuff! Usual suspects were great - Paxxie, Daisy, Lauren Pearce, Libby Birch, Tyla Hanks, Eliza McNamara. Go Freo, and let’s get 40,000 at the G!!!!

Totally agree Webber.
Lightning quick and finishes beautifully at top pace.

On the umpiring: why doesn’t the AFLW draw from the same pool of umpires as the blokes? Not that the men’s umpires are always that good either, but if the AFLW is the elite competition, they should have access to the supposed best umpires in the business right?

AFLW umpires is the their down from AFL but above league level for umpires (these are the one's coming through the system into the afl in the future).  I have a feeling they umpire it differently due to the skill of the girls competition. Many things that would be are int he AFL are not paid in the AFLW, which makes it frustrating to watch.  It like they give them more time due to different skill levels.  Not that they should.

The weather didn’t help. Horrible day to go outside.

Yeah, the whole interpretation of holding the ball, incorrect disposal seems to be non existent. You'd wonder if it's a worthwhile tactic for Mick to tell the team to just try and bust through tackles because you're never penalised for holding or dropping the ball. I think we got our first free for incorrect disposal by a Brisbane player with a minute to go in the game.

Anyways, super proud of the girls. A great grinding win.

I really think the women can draw in a whole group of young fans if we promote them properly. It's a different standard of footy but still enthralling to watch.

Go Dees

Still flying high, go Dees! Some incredible efforts in this game and a nailbiting finish - although, of course, never in doubt!

I moved on from the poor umpire about three seasons ago but understand why it annoys newcomers. And like many decisions in AFLW, the MCG venue for today was short-term pain for long-term gain.

Sweet Grand Final dreams, Demonlanders!

    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
