I’m in Fiji currently and am considering a weekly sub to WatchAFL to watch it but all the reviews I’ve read bemoan the quality of the stream. Can anyone confirm whether it’s worth it?   

It was fine for me while I was in NZ a couple of weeks ago.

Unless we lose a quarter, will win by 8 goals+ I reckon. Depends entirely on Eagles effort. If they’ve genuinely checked out, it’ll get ugly.

I had a similar experience in round 13 2014. I was also in Fiji.

Essendon vs Demons. Game was superclose. My connection came back for 30seconds as I watched the ball move from half back, up to Salem who marked 20meters out. 

Connection goes down again and I know it's going to take 3 minutes to buffer again but I didn't care. I knew Salem was a good kick and would kick it.

I was in New York for that match and had to get up at 3 or 4am to watch it in the hotel bathroom so I wouldn’t wake my wife. I ended up walking the entire floor of the hotel. WatchAFL worked fine.

All I want is the four points.

And an extra 20 percentage points.

Last year vs Crows thinking pre game couldn’t lose, agree to happily bank the 4 points vs Eagles!

Salem to come back soon, Bedford playing well plus Tomlinson, Weideman and Dunstan in VFL should be sufficient pressure for a strong effort and solid win today.

RIP Andrew Symonds, another person gone far to early. While not anywhere near in the Warne status probably the best fielder I have ever seen play cricket.

Terribly sad.  A brilliant cricketer.  Loved watching him take the game on.  And just amazing in the field.

Well worth it as long as the internet stacks  up.

Hey, where's everyone watching today's match?

I'm going to The Sporting Globe in Richmond. If anyone else is going there, I'm the bloke wearing the Demons cap !!   😉

He died in a car crash. Only 46yo. Absolute tragedy. 💔

This might have been the most relaxing week as a Melbourne supporter I've ever had. This coming week would have been too but will now be offset by a Europa League final taking place in Seville early on Thursday morning. It's a gorgeous autumnal day so I might take the short train ride down to Arden Street to watch the magoos before the main event starts.

We are so many leagues ahead it's not funny

We will play forward half footy and they will stand no chance 

I expect nothing more the belting - we showed good score board pressure in the first against the saints and I'd love to see that for 4qts today

I still have nightmares of the feeble capitulation to the EssUndone VFL side a few years back.  
I actually found it hard to take our team seriously for the next 12 months or so.  
Guys - please don’t let that happen    My MFCSS could become terminal.

Indeed .. I also remember when the Swans were on a losing streak of about 30 matches ... guess who they had a win against to break that streak? To make matters worse, I was at that match!!

PS.  I was also at the loss v Essendon VFL side.

I don't think I can be bothered watching today's match and same goes for North next week. I'd rather go to an open training session which I expect will be more competitive.

No MFCSS here!

Yes, that 2014 Ess game was a nightmare but this isn't that team.   It was light years away from where we are now. 

The whole WCE club has thrown in the towel:  They are officially using the 'R' word chairman-s-message

Dees by 6-8 goals.

Eagles will not play with much of a gameplan and will likely try to own the corridor not to mention pack our forward 50.

Could be a frustrating game but hopefully not

If we use 6-6-6 to our advantage and bang bang bang <repeat repeatedly> then they won’t get a chance to pack the backline.

Does anyone reckon that bloke who snuck into Perth for the GF is going today? He won't have to go to jail this time.

He is probably on a watch list at perth airport

Hard to resist the 17:1 Eagles.

This "WAFL side" contains Kennedy, Darling, McGovern, Cripps, Ryan , Barrass, Shuey.

I can't help but worry.

I have MFCSS.

If you really want to take a chance take the $4.50 for Melbourne to win by under 40 points. You don't see that too often $1.12 for over 40 points and $4.50 for under.

Started work early so I could make the matinee down at John Foord Oval with Corowa taking on Yarrawonga. Despite Corowas improvement (only falling 2 points shirt of Albury, and should have won on expected score) I think Yarra will be to tough an ask.

 

Leg of lamb on the rotisserie and a fat cuban I'll be round in the forward pocket scoreboard end if anyone's hungry.

G'day from Wahgunyah 😉
We're not talking footy over here 😂

    JUNGLE KINGS by George On The Outer

    The top of the table Brisbane Lions came into their game against Melbourne thinking they were kings of the AFL Jungle. However, by game’s end they were shown to be toothless, as the rampant Demons gave them a lesson about the exact level you have to be at to justify that mantle.  The first quarter saw Brisbane squander some easy chances in front of goal, which kept Melbourne within striking distance and, as a result, the Lions led by a mere goal. Of course, it could have been so much d

    A STEP FORWARD? by The Oracle

    The winds of change have blown through the Melbourne Football Club over the past month or so as the team previously known for applying relentless pressure on opponents dramatically fell from its pedestal to a low not seen for some three years. This is a team that had the luxury of going through last season with one of the healthiest lists in the competition. And that health was not only reflected in a weekly injury list that revealed very few key players missing, but importantly, even fewer

    HUMBLE PIE by George on the Outer

    Seventeen wins in a row followed by a trio of losses.  The invincible Demon juggernaut was simply humbled by the Pies in that third loss, as once again they gave up an early three goal plus lead, to be over-run in the end. Is it loading? Perhaps. Is it the loss of players? Perhaps More likely, they are a combination of the two. Certainly, we have seen the side take an early lead in all of these games only to fade as reflected on the scoreboard where Melbourne has been outscored

    EARLY FREEZE by KC from Casey

    If the publicity ahead of Queens Birthday Monday was all about the Big Freeze and the game to follow the pre-game entertainment then the hardy group that braved the country’s cold snap to travel out to the windy plains beyond Cranbourne were given an early taste of what was to come in the Casey's big 52-point win over Collingwood VFL. The day started well with the Demons comprehensively beating the VFLW Magpies in the curtain-raiser elimination final and then their male counterparts donned

    THE CURSE by Norm Smith’s Ghost

    Melbourne’s fortunes took a dramatic turn for the worst on the day the Anthony Albanese was elected as Prime Minister. Since that fateful day, Steven May pinged his hamstring early in the match against the Dockers, Harry Petty came off the ground in consecutive games feeling the worse for wear, it was revealed that Tom McDonald’s foot was in messy shape, the Herald Sun exclusively reported that two years ago, Demon committee members exchanged emails critical of the team after it lost a game by 5

    BANGED UP by George On The Outer

    Melbourne v Sydney. City v City. Two top eight sides fighting for finals spots.  Sydney having beaten the Demons in ten of their last twelve encounters.    In what would turn out to be one of the most hotly contested games for the club in 2022, the physical damage to players was probably the deciding factor in the end.   Once again, Melbourne lost Tom McDonald pre-game to a yet unspecified foot injury.  More importantly was how much his work up the ground and bullocking influ

    TEN by KC from Casey

    The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistan

    THE COMEBACK by Whispering Jack

    How will Melbourne react to losing a game after such a long time since tasting defeat? That question is on everybody’s lips after the complete collapse of the team in the second half against Fremantle last week. When Bayley Fritsch missed his shot at goal 23 minutes into the second term, the Demons were 30 points ahead but from that point onward they were comprehensively overwhelmed as their structures fell apart all over the park. Unlike what occurred on a number of occasions during their

    SURVIVAL MODE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons managed to survive a day of challenges that in many ways mirrored their AFL counterpart Narrm from the previous day but Casey emerged undefeated from their Round 10 encounter with Frankston at Skybus Stadium. Like the Demon seniors they were undermanned and lost players due to late withdrawals, went through an arm wrestle in the first quarters, took over the game in the second to set up a big lead before a late goal gave hope to their opponent and limped through a last half

    DEES-MANTLED by George On The Outer

    Well the streak has finally ended, but in the worst possible way, when Fremantle absolutely dismantled Melbourne to record an emphatic 38 point win. This ended the 17 game winning streak of the Demons, but worse to report was that Melbourne led the game by nearly 5 goals in the second quarter, before the Dockers banged through 10 straight goals. In fact they kicked 13 goals to 1 from that point just before half time. So what happened?  Melbourne aren’t accustomed

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca
