POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs Fremantle

Last week wasn’t good either

Interesting what you do in a game like that? We struggled in the midfield and when we did get it forward it was lobbed high on Brown’s head and the Freo fullback just bulldozed Brown forward, meters under the ball time & time again. Odd that there isn’t a rule for that sort of blatant action. But use a hand push or God forbid grab a bit of jumper in a wrestle for position, the whistle goes immediately?

Surprised (but not really) that Hunt and Rivers are copping the criticism when they’re the ones so often chasing 2 opponents because Gus Brayshaw is playing Russian roulette all game. He looked a million bucks in the 2nd quarter when we were well on top, as soon as Freo got any ascendancy he was caught out time and time again miles from his opponent 

I remember him taking 2 marks in the goal square in the 3rd quarter. last line of defence

Nice response, but I think you may have missed my point DD36. 

No, no.. try again. 

Do you even actually know why I made reference to Mark Jamar?

How cute of you @ucanchoose. Living rent free inside that small head of yours 😘 keep battling away old fella and someday someone will take you serious on here.

Been holding that in for a while, huh. 
You probably don’t mind a loss since it’s your opportunity to really lay the boots in. You sincerely believe Goody and co. are gonna gift any player a game for any reason???
Even I know that’s rubbish. 

Of course I don't mind the loss lol.  Give us the perfect opportunity to reset and start again. That's the benefit of a loss sometimes.

He was absolutely gifted to his 200th game LOL. Off the back of a 7 disposal 1 tackle game with zero impact to an even worse performance tonight. 

Take rosy glasses off. It's okay for people to call it as they see it.

We are very much built from the Paul Roos school of defence...which is to always try to outnumber and not need to be one out in 50/50 contests. Looked like Freo tried to shift our zone but importantly were then prepared to kick to one on one contests where many of our highly rated players were exposed all night...and Freo also worked harder to be the next number at the contest.

I still think we are a side that has thrived on system more than talent...teams will do well to isolate our talent and make us try to win games by winning contests in genuine one on ones...

One was a very good mark too. But when you constantly drop 30m behind your opponent you’re going to get intercepts. 

Freo’s half forwards had a field day and when the mids didn’t cover off it killed us.

Good defending starts with stopping your opponent when required before looking for the easy kicks.

In the scheme of things  we had a hiccup, something that you can’t avoid from time to time.   
Every now and then you need to experience failure to make you more hungry for success.
It is a good time to review and reset.  Big lesson is that against better sides we need to put in more than a one quarter effort to put sides away.   
Still on top, long way to go- GO DEES

Goodness, what’s going on here, Dazzle? I sincerely hope you’re not Aaron Davey. He was one of my favourite players.

Not sure what others thought but I also thought tonight was one of the best umpired games i have seen in ages. Only 27 frees in total...let the players decide the result. They didn't pay the incidental type of infringements that have no impact on the contest...which is exactly how it should be umpired.

Our defence is system and our attack needs a lot of talent, especially right now.

A big issue is our depth players have very little talent nor can they play the system. 

Bedford flashes some ability to do both but he’s really only useful covering the small forwards.

I thought our first half was excellent. But Gawn, Oliver, Petracca and Viney left their mojo in the change rooms at half time. Big fail in the midfield. 

Second quarter was very good, first quarter we were outplayed they just didn't put it on the scoreboard. It probably should've been even at half time then they blitzed us after that.

@binman Don't know about the training loads, round 11 last year we ran over Brisbane after destroying the Dogs the week before. Thought it was closer to round 12/13 when it started to become evident.

He's a favourite alright.

But we certainly could do with another Aaron Davey type forward.

Harsh on Bedford. He showed he has the wheels and talent to make it. Hard judging a young player with hardly any games under his belt. 

You might have a point, but you can't single out Bedford and not mention Melksham, Weid and Dunstan who all had far less impact.

Melksham might as well have not been on the ground.What a horrible way to bring up 200 games.

Can I just say to people that want to go to the football, watch the game. If you want to drink and talk to your friends and be on your phone, go to a pub or restaurant. I had 2 ladies sit next to me and not sure how many cans they had but the more they had the more the laughter got annoying. They were con there phones the whole time and talking about people in there lives. 

I really don't know how much they saw of the game. 

Amazing…because you posted on the game day thread consistently, throughout the entire game….on your phone.

Petty was injured last week and surprised to see him selected.  Even then I thought he may be a late out when Tomlison was an emergency.

Knowing that Petty could break down and that TMc wasn't there for backup if he did, I was really surprised Tomlinson wasn't sub.  It was a risk which backfired and made worse by May going off as well.

Bedford just needs games now. 

He's got tools that are AFL standard and some that need work. But in the games he's played this year he hasn't done a lot wrong.

He certainly gets a game next week.

    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

    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.

    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
