We were in much better form last season and it looked it

Except for all the times during that same season when everyone said the same thing about our inaccurate kicking. We never really looked like losing in any aspects of todays game, poor kicking aside.

I do think that inaccurate kicking more often than not is one of the worst parts of our game, but I'm sure we'll cope. Just as we did in 2021.

Dunstan is a terrible player and shouldn't be in the team, ever again. 

That’s a rough assessment. He’s untidy with the ball, which is why he isn’t best 22, but he’ll play whenever Viney can’t.

We should have spanked them.

Thats a win for North.

inaccurate as always, we are primed for a finals upset.

Along with the Eagles, North concede the most amount of points and inside 50s against yet we looked to be going uphill for 75% of the game

Both North and Eagles arguably put up their biggest fights of the year against us outside of their wins. If North go into that with their normal plan we win by 180 points. They threw everything at us and it was still almost a 10 goal win. What do you people want?

One of those games where you just bank the four points and move on to next week. The game certainly wasn't without its frustrations but I was expecting North to challenge us given that teams are clearly trying to find ways to shut us down. 

Oliver can take a bow. Best on ground by a country mile.

Can't complain with being 10-0. We're off to an even better start than last year.

It’s not as easy as that. We are being hunted each week 

Yes our goal kicking must improve, but i have no problem with our endeavour 

We are playing tough footy. 
Without Langdon and Viney. 
 

This was Noughts biggest game of the year. Next week they will be crap again. 
 

Meanwhile we are 10-0

I hope Mr Ed is ok

Melbourne supporters who say that was the most “pathetic” football we have played in a long time and that we’re “not a proper team” don’t have a basic understanding of football.

Melbourne are a system-based team. This means that our team is designed to play the same way week in, week out. We could be like Geelong and change tactics every week to smash bottom sides by 80+, but that’s what let’s you down in finals. That’s why teams like Geelong have done nothing in September.

Some of our fans have no idea just how good we have it. We had the same type of  performances against bottom teams last year and what happened? We won the [censored] premiership. So those people suggesting that we’re not gonna perform against the better teams as a result of how we played today are absolutely clueless about the game.

Just amazing how people's goalposts have shifted since we've become a good side. I get that we're better now and should expect better, but my word the entitlement creeping in here is worrisome.

I was one of the 13,000 at the ground. It was genuinely such a weird vibe for the first quarter. It had all the feeling of a preseason game.

I also think that stadium plays very differently to any other ground. North tried to work through our zone with precision short kicking that in all seriousness they couldn’t execute on at any other ground. The surface is like carpet. It’s like the difference between indoor soccer and soccer. The basic skills are the same, but the games play entirely differently.

I thought we just had a better quality of player, and that was the difference. Both teams tried hard.

Sorry - didn't follow the game day chat - does anyone know what actually happened to Langdon?  The Foxtel commentary (aka Kangaroos support club) hardly said boo about the injury.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
