This is flat out embarrassing. Getting destroyed by a lower mid table interstate team on our home deck. Just pathetic.

"Home deck". Please. They can [censored] off back to windy Hill.

Assuming Geelong beats Hawthorn tomorrow, there will be a two game gap between 7th (likely Carlton given its percentage) and 8th (Collingwood).

Five weeks in, we are getting close to the point where the top 8 starts to take shape. There is a reasonable argument the top 7 will be playing finals this year. You'd think the 8th side will be the Dogs, with Collingwood, Richmond, Adelaide, Gold Coast and GWS mid-table sides who will win some good games but not enough.

My hatred ( I know wasted energy) of Essendon knows no limits. What they did to the competition with drugs ( whatever it takes - James Hird) I just cannot get over. And how weak the AFL were. I have missed the last two Melbourne V Essendon games as I cannot cope with their supporters. The only fight in the MCC that I noticed was way back when Salem won us the game. Two Essendon supporters went feral and started jumping seats to punch Melbourne supporters and fair and square hit two women. They were stopped by security and turned out to be sons of an Essendon member. Father lost his rights for quite a while.

Generally will not watch any match with them in it but flicked onto #504 and am enjoying Fremantle's game. BURY THEM FREO.

Rant over.

I too survived several visits to Windy Hill. Hate them more than I hate Carlton

Not sure the Dogs will be the 8th team. Their game plan is very basic and relies on too few to make it work! I really think they are a club with no Plan B if they start to come undone during a game.Even if they are I think we mentally scarred them last year and you will see that play out during the remainder of this year. They are an organisation at war with itself! Maybe Collingwood could surprise a few!

A couple of happy clappers on here looking foolish after saying our form stacks up well because we only lost to the Dees by 5 goals.
Absolutely farken pathetic pea hearted piece of ■■■■ club can go [censored] themselves.

I went a bit early with Carlton in saying they’re a flag chance.

I don’t think it’s a sustainable model to require 7-8 goal leads at half time against poor-average sides only to fall over the line because a McKay or a Weitering took a match saving mark.

St Kilda and Freo look like they have more substance to them and we may have to face of these two sides to get into a GF.

I still think the best teams are Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Carlton and Geelong.

Not convinced about St Kilda and Fremantle just yet.

Not sure how you're convinced about Carlton after their last two weeks. Showing up for the first half and just getting over the line ain't gonna cut it for a whole year of home and away, let alone the insanity that is finals pressure.

I still don’t understand how this guy is so despised, like wtf?! 

Don't get me wrong, he is a really really good footballer, but the constant staging for free kicks, throwing his head back, and over celebrating is really grating.

I hated this kind of stuff if my own team mates did it when I played local footy, and I still hate it. It is also what put me off Brian Wilson at first, and even Kozzie was doing it in his first season.

Freo is miles ahead of Carlton because they have a good defensive structure. 
Carlton will look like an A plus team and then immediately drop their bundle. They remind me a lot of the Dogs right now, reliant on having a perfect midfield game to dominate games but can’t handle any sort of pressure or defend behind the ball. 
 

Freo are very good.

I’ve said it before but I’d love to see the examples that so anger people.

They still got the 8pts and they'd be happy with that.
Good teams find a way to win the close ones and all that jazz.

He also tends to drop his knees when tackled from behind so the tackler falls on top of him. Does it all the time but some umpires seem now to be aware of this. Watch the GF and see him doing it when Pickett tackles and dispossess him and the ball goes to Bowey to set up the Brayshaw goal. Weightman flops like he’s been knee capped and Pickett falls dead set square on his back. Luckily the umpires ignored this.

Well, I'm not going to put a video package together for you, so feel free to undertake that task if that's the proof you need. Some players irritate me for certain reasons, and they don't you. I'm ok with the difference of opinion.

Yep. They are not fit. Mentally or Physically

No idea how to shut a game down

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
