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

Kid can seriously play.

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?

Oh the joy of going to a game. Had a great night but I wonder how much bigger would the crowd have been in the afternoon? AFL don't care if course.

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 !!

    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.
