That's always the problem playing Collingwood..would you prefer to win by 1 or 100. 1 is almost better.

My 7 and 9 year old boys had a punch on yesterday. 7 yo won. Gave them both a week. Mother wants to review it.

They are in their room playing nicely now. Bit like footy players.

Give the 9yr old a cuff up the ear hole.

He is in his bullying prime and should not let it go to waste.

Interestingly we lead the league in tackles inside 50, have conceded the fewest amount of points (even with a full game more on a quarter of the league who had the bye last round) and along with Collingwood are one of the best intercept teams in the league.

We are one of the worst tackling and worst pressure act teams (pressure act being chasing a team from behind). It could well be the way we play in that we rarely need to chase. Teams out tackle us given we are near the top in contested possessions and disposals. We win and have more of the ball overall. We also go forward more than any other team.

It could explain why our games haven't looked "good" all year. They have almost always seemed like grinds and they really have been.

Suggesting Collingwood "should" win though is a stretch. Why?

Teams have also played a lot of possession footy against us (Essendon, Port, Hawks etc) meaning less opportunity for pressure acts.

Purely based on form.

One side is on a 3 game winning with two of those wins against a top 4 contender and a premiership contender.

The other has lost two straight games to a top 4 contender and a premiership contender, on their home turf.

Not sure why Melbourne supporters are so confident in winning this one.

Collingwood also lost to WC.

I'm not confident and agree we shouldn't be based on form, but similarly suggesting Collingwood "should" win is still a stretch. They've played some good football and notched some good wins. They also lost to the Bulldogs by 9 goals and beat up a Freo side that at the time was going through an arguably worse patch on field than we are going through right now. 

I respect what Collingwood has done so far but we're still the best team in the land. We should have beaten Freo and we should have beaten Sydney. Carlton should've beaten Collingwood. We should beat Collingwood. Form is important obviously but if either team *should* win, it should be the objectively better team. And that's Melbourne.

Let's show our team a bit of respect here.

i thought the match up was tough already (for similar reasons to why we lost last year), and wish I shared your confidence. Maybe MFCSS is slowly creeping in (cue Powderfinger!), but I am already getting mentally ready for a 2 week self-imposed ban from listening to SEN and RSN and watching any footy shows.

I gave myself a lifetime ban a few years ago Spalding. Get all my footy news from 'Land. This way I know it's the truth.

I honestly can’t wait to see how we respond. I’m really curious to see if we steel ourselves or turn to water.

Regardless of how intense our attack on the ball is, our problems run deeper than just an effort level. Our forward line is completely at sea and we’re a long way off from clicking, so even if we do win, it won’t be by much as I think we’ll struggle to kick over 70-80pts.

I guess there is a difference between optimism and defeatism though.

Too deeply philosophical - does it man if you defeat yourself by bad kicking it gives more strength to do it again 🤔🤔🤔?

Only WCW can provide an acceptable answer I suspect Monoccular. I'm sitting here writing an essay for a masters in philosophy, and I have KFI what it means Brother.

Yes the forwards are struggling a bit but for us to give this mob a hiding we need our full lot of mids to dominate in tight and on the outside and give some decent disposals to our forwards advantage. Trac needs to have a blinder on Monday and we need the lesser lights like Harmes, ANB and Sparrow to give Oliver a hand out. This happens and we win easily.

I’m now leaning towards a win on the proviso that we address our inside 50 issues. Not sure how easily rectifiable that is in the space of a week?

We played pretty damn well against Sydney from a contested point of view  (after a poor Freo loss) but let ourselves down with our entires inside 50s with the McCartins and Co reading so many of our entries.

We simply have to get on with the business without May. No excuses.

The Goulding long goal with 4 mins left clearly punctured out tyres on reflection, after constant failed inside 50 opportunities.

I just rewatched Watts sealing the deal on QB in 2017 on the AFL website: https://www.afl.com.au/video/772302/on-this-day-2017-watts-settles-queen-s-birthday-classic?videoId=772302&modal=true&type=video&publishFrom=1654977600001

The simple times... when we were bad and just got hyped to finally win a big game.

Now we're 10-2 and half our supporters think we're not doing well enough and that we should sack one of our best players. Ah well, I know which year I prefer to be living in :-D

The May saga does not break our culture - it allows us to reinforce it by calling out what breaches standards with honesty and clarity (Max and Goody’s pressers) and setting it to rights.  What busts culture is Bailey ‘Sniffer’ Smith - where bad behaviour is condoned, covered up or excuses are made.

This game for me comes down to handling and seeing off the Pies attempt at pressure, and fixing our structures and method forward of the ball.  We need to move it from contest with precision and  create space forward, rather than allowing flooding back in our f50 because we are too slow to move the footy.

hope we see a glint of steel in our game and we win by 50+.  Happy with 1 point win.

Something in what you say rings a bell in my thoughts: '...to give Oliver a hand out...' in conjunction with, perhaps, 'give a hand out to Trac and Gawn' (as these three a left to pick up the crumbs and create the plays with others so that our 'team' can fire). We seem to have lost a little control over working '...for one another...' and this is starting to have major ramifications on the progress of our game, and down the line, our forward and deep forward opportunities and related execution without turnovers. Gus does the most to help the trademark ball carriage and created plays. Langdon - coming back to form - is also critical to this mass of positivity; Salem - also returning to form one hopes - is going to be vital. Spargo and Kozzie must also be sought in nearly every forward-line entry either as pacemaker carriers or one-touch crumbers. We have the talent, the aptitude and the ability to return to our gladiatorial best - flogging the Filth - and providing downward pressure on the latent rises within top six positions on the ladder. Think, boys ... do, boys ... execute.

Don’t know what KFI means. But I defs have NFI what it means. 
Unless you’re referring to the Ginnivan boy in his oversized shorts, in which case I do know. But it’s his three-sizes-too-small jumper that needs to be addressed. The huge shorts I’ll let slide since it seems the entire team wears them.

 Uncle are you suggesting chaos theory applies here?

A bear attempts a dump in the woods on Saturday, remains seriously constipated until Monday arvo. Desperate for 'release', arrives at the 'G' disguised as Eddy Everywhere in costume. Gate crashes the BIg Freeze 8 pre-game celebrations. Takes the slide hits the ice bath, the shock to the stretch receptors is too much and the [censored] hits the fan. Colonwood boys forming a guard of honour, loyally take the hit.

Demons take the field to clean up the 'filth'.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
