What They Are Saying at Moore Park



Recommended Posts

Bigfooty

Before our Freo loss

  • We go in with absolutely ZERO expectations of a win so should be no pressure on us.
  • Look at it this way:  We lose: we get a better draft pick via our first.  We win: we get a better draft pick via Melbourne’s first.  Happy days.
  • I'm low key confident we'll win this game. It'll be the first game where we put in a 4 quarter performance.
  • As for this game, it really comes down to Melbourne. ..it is only natural they're due to drop their intensity and lose a game. It is just a matter of whether they do it this week against Freo or next week against us.
  • They are due a stupid loss, and I would love it to be us but I reckon it would take a full four quarter effort with very few brain fades.
  • Gonna win this by under a goal and the post game thread celebrations will be going for a while
  • May out helps but if they drop freo they will destroy us
  • Mommy I'm scared

After our Freo Loss

  • I had a feeling either Freo or Swans would break Melbourne's win streak, I guess Freo got there first. Is back-to-back losses too much to ask
  • Unfortunately for us, Melbourne couldn't wait one more half of footy before putting the cue in the rack. We now face the best team in the comp with the added spice of having a point to prove.
  • Anything within a 30 point loss will be a respectable outcome for us.
  • Melbourne will come out absolutely firing next week to dispel what happened last night.
  • We just gotta go with them, not saying we win , but think against the best we usually bring from full effort and fire up
  • Sure, they'll re-group & plan for a game without May - but I do sense we're catching Melbourne at a reasonable time.
  • I reckon Warner will be like a cat on a hot tin roof this week. Saturday night at the g, against the best team in the comp with the 2 best bulls in the game playing in his position. He would be frothing at the mouth to get out there this week...
    • ...I guarantee he will be looking for a moment to put either tracca or clarry on their [censored] this week to really announce himself
  • Dees loss to Freo has done us zero favours. Hard to see Petracca having another shocker.
  • Can we just forfeit, will be a massacre.
  • The matchup I’m really keen to see but unsure if will happen due to injury is the flying Ed Langdon v Jmac. I still think Jmac is not full speed from his knee injury but would love to see them go at it streaming down the wing of the G. Can see the former 400m runner Jmac reeling him in.
  • Just hit them hard from the get go pressure and intent goes a long way to winning any game.
  • Swans are 1 and 3 against the current top 8. That’s not finals calibre.
  • July 16.  Freo at Optus.  The stuff of nightmares.  By comparison, this week is a walk in the park.
  • Of course Melbourne get back Salem, McDonald, Harmes and Langdon this week. You just knew this would happen.
  • I honestly don't elevate Melbourne to these lofty heights that some have.  They're a good side. No doubt.  However they have their weaknesses.
  • They were exposed and out coached against Freo on the weekend.
  • Trac is carrying something and coming off a bad bout of the flu, I'm not too scared of him this week.

After Buddy’s Appeal Announced.

  • If he gets off it will be because he's Buddy. It's worth doing.
  • I'm genuinely terrified of what Gawn, Oliver & Petracca will do to us if we have our usual 20-40 minutes of nap-time.
  • We have any lapses against that trio and we can forget about any comeback as they'll put it out of reach, something that Carlton, Brisbane, Richmond etc. all failed to do.
  • Watching it again just now on 360, not sure how we're going to argue it though when the second had a much bigger follow through so can't really be argued as the same action as the first lol.
  • It's a different Melbourne team this week: Harmes, Langdon, Salem, McDonald, a healthierPetracca.  Freo didn't have to deal with them.
  • If you head butted me, I'd ******* punch you in the face too

My favourite

  • Buddy challenge is interesting. Wonder what the hell they can actually argue...
    • ..that cotchin is a [censored].     LH note:  The DL censor has spoilt the joke.  Censored word is a translation of: Richard Cranium.

It's amazing how we're seen externally.  Since the 1st half against the saints we've really only just been going.  Of course there's injuries etc but as some commentators have pointed out, our defensive running / pressure etc is not what it was last year.

Sydney always play well at the G.  We have some great likely additions but often it takes players a few weeks to find their groove - I think we're ripe for the taking at the moment.

I have confidence we'll get it together by the end of the season but can see us dropping a few in the next 8 weeks.

Having prepared the 'What they are saying...' threads for a few months, I'm surprised how decent opp fans have been.  There has been the odd but rare nasty poster, which I don't bother including.

The most common sentiments are: respect, fear, awe.

This probably wasn't always the case.

tbh there are more nasty posts on DL toward our opps and their fans in the pre and post game related threads.  Shall see myself out...

It's interesting to read oppo posts which are vastly different to the sentiment expressed here, especially since the Freo loss. Oppo supporters tend to respect us more than we do our own when things go inevitably wrong ...

That's troubling. I always thought it was just Richmond supporters who were like this.

They said this before the Freo game? Someone get me their contact details, I want to buy a lottery ticket.

I think it was during the Freo game before the result was known.

The poster feared we would take the loss out on Sydney.

We've beaten Sydney twice since 2010, and not convincingly on either occasion. Obviously we're a vastly different side from the early 2010s, but Sydney are well coached and well led, and we're going to need to play very well to beat them. I'm surprised their fans aren't more confident.

I can tell you there are plenty of swans fans that feel they are good things this week

Most of the ones I know think we have been plodding for weeks now getting by on a decent quarter here and there

They always match up well against us and I'm sure this week will be no different - tough game - tough selection choices coming up too

Hard to argue with any of that. They have the skills and the pace to break our lines.

We looked really slow against Freo, maybe it was training loads like last year or perhaps flu that we appear to have been hit by!?

Always match up well against us.

As good as it is to be getting a host of premiership stars back this week, it is likely going to take a few weeks for the side to gel. Whether we win or not, I’m not sure. We need to get the connection back. There has been a disconnect between mids and forwards in the last couple of weeks and we have been getting it done without being in great form. Sydney is another massive test.

Tom Papley came out and said they are going to train “what Freo did” - which is great news.  Not playing their own ‘brand’ to beat us means 1) they don’t think their brand is good enough 2) the Dockers formula will work on a fully fit Dees outfit and 3) when it starts to fall apart for them, what do they do? The Dockers way or their own??

Sends a powerful signal that we should capitalise on.  Blood(s) in the water for a rebound.

Seriously, the side and snide references are completely unnecessary and poor form.

Thanks for changing your post.

Just beat me to it.

Is there something offensive about vaginas mate? Or cervical cancer?

    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

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    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
