Recommended Posts

I don't think it's be brought up yet, but how bloody awesome was Bowey's intercept and goal? 

Kid can seriously play.

He’s amazing he looks like a schoolboy but plays like a 150 game star

Interesting....

Melbourne had a remarkable 10 individual goal scorers in the third term - becoming just the third club to achieve the feat in the past 20 years.

Best we have played all year,

I hate the metro train service.

It was utter chaos getting home. A while platform shut down at Richmond and all Pakenham line punters had to get off at Caulfield for buses, and their were none to be seen.

I walked away from the masses and was lucky a lovely taxi driver noticed me with my 2 kids and went out of his way to pick us up.

Disgraceful scenes at Caulfield, imagine if this was a 50k crowd!

If you count Jackson's goal in the second, we had a run of 11 goals all kicked by different players.

EDITED: Slight statistical error, whoops.

I went by car and parked at the G for the first time in years. Do they normally not let card out of the park for 30 minutes after the game?

Lack of love post.

A big shout out to a player not getting a lot of love - Jack Viney. A goal in every game so far this year. Great gut running, his kicking is now effective, and he continues to be brutal around stoppages and uncompromising with the expectations of his team mates. 

Not enough love for Harmes' game. His game has the same quality as ANB - just so steady and reliable. Great mark, great kick, and runs both ways.

The lack of love for the Weid is interesting, especially for dropping marks that hit his hands. Jackson suffered from this as well, and dropped way more than Weid, but not mentioned once. 

Totally-deserved lack of love for Umpire 34, who was not only bad with the Dees. That decision against de Boer for dropping the ball - sheesh!! She made a LOT of wrong calls or misses.

After last nights game it’s clear why Petty is preferred to Tomlinson. He is a much better player - more mobile, great hands and a good physical presence. An important cog in the wheel.

He’s gone to another level, so confident, he’s got his dancing shoes on now days too. His foot skills just keep adding to teams woes.

Teams might have to go in with 12 fwds each game to just try to score enough.

LOL.  I was tempted to mention that Umpy, too.  Was the one who disallowed Trac's great goal.  To avoid the sexist tag, I was gonna simply refer to "the umpy with the high voice..."  Made several terrible calls against us.

Not just against us as others have detailed.  One minor thing not mentioned is their failure to immediately line up Gawn on his shot for goal at around 17:00 of Q2.   He marked the ball at 51m and was obviously going to have a shot but the ump initially stood with  the 'stand' gesture 25m away before realising they had to run in to line him up.

True, but it's critical for a key forward to clunk them routinely.    And Weid's follow-up work appears a bit slack.

How good did Petty look.

Incredible to think how quickly he has gone past Tomlinson (albeit with a serious knee injury).

Once again Goody and Co got it right !

Jie many would BBB have kicked last night ?

I actually loved that decision. The new holding the ball rule calls for players to be deemed holding it earlier when they are caught. He was caught dead to rights and the ball fell from his hands. I really don't care that he got a fraction of toe on the ball as it hit the deck.

If we are to prevent sling tackles we need to call holding the ball faster rather than wait for players to get extremely suspect disposals away. We've been rewarding players who get little toe pokes on the ball after clearly been caught and dropping it for a long time now.

Ruthless performance. Thoroughly enjoyable to watch. The only time I got annoyed was late in the game when we gave up some junk time goals 🤣 

crowds are an issue across the league. Covid main factor. Plus school holidays. I’m down the coast this weekend as are the crew I normally head along to games with. I think Anzac eve will be a better indicator of member engagement. I expect a big crowd (I’ll be there for sure)

Apparently we are playing a ‘very good team’ next week. Does anyone at Channel 7 or SEN know anything about Football? Adelaide won because Burgess is their Fitness Coach and Richmond have no Martin and are on the decline.Why don’t the media see that teams go up and down and that teams like Essendon and Richmond will struggle for a while until they get their lists right!

But hey, Go Demons!

What, 22 years?

It's for spectator safety going to Richmond Station on Brunson St which is why walkover is necessary in the Station upgrade..

How good is it that we had a 10 goal quarter but the crowd (and me personally) appeared more amped for May’s two spoiling efforts on the wing as he came off and Sparrows gut run and tap to Fritter.

Good to see Picketts and Spargos effort so far this season turn into goals and possessions.

Petty back is so important as it frees May to play a higher, more aggressive defensive game.

We really do prepare for everything the opposition might throw at us and it’s no wonder opposition coaches look bereft of ideas at times in the coaches box.

It might have been brought up on Game Day, the Giants used one of their best defenders in Haynes on Lever in the early parts of the first and second quarters. Haynes tried to wear Lever like a glove for obvious reasons, but if you focus on one player May and Petty will chew you up. Hunt stepped in to block Haynes several times so Lever can try and do Lever things, that particular tactic didn’t work for them so they gave up on it quickly. Our boys just go the extra mile when it comes to supporting each other.

Sparrow.  Loved his run and continued running.  
 

As described… “selfless, brilliant”. We were right behind it and stood to applaud Tommy Sparrow’s effort.  His goal !!

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
