POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood



Recommended Posts

Petracca, Smith, Langdon. 
 

Nowhere to be seen. 
 

Petracca in particular has been a shadow of his former self the past three weeks, or even more. 
 

But our forward line is a joke at the moment. A joke.

I forgot what it's like to watch a team struggle. Didn't miss it. Going to have a drink.

Not much to take from tonight other than we made a hero of mihochek and Cox, and every other team in the league will now fancy themselves against us, and I don't blame them. We're very poor right now and there's not a hell of a lot of time to work it out. 

Ugh.

The concern is that we have seen the exact same thing three weeks in a row. It's all been said before and yet nothing has changed from week to week.

Top 4 is looking incredibly unlikely if this continues let alone even making the eight. 

If you have no avenue to goal, and cant convert when u do get a look, you can't kick enough to win the game, its a pretty simple equation.  

I know the players care but they just don't have the fight and intensity that they did last year. The last three weeks, our opposition has wanted it a whole lot more than we have. 

I feel like if we were going to fix our issues, it would have happened by now.

Amongst all that, they're battling it out - but injuries knocking us round, both in available players and on game day.

But, issue remains the forward line. You're not going to win matches kicking 8 and 9 goals. Not even sure what the answer is, especially with McDonald out for the season (effectively).

The fitness levels of the players this year is pathetic. 

Burgess would be disgusted by this. Put in all the work last year & as soon as he leaves they take their foot off the gas because of the now inflated ego they posses after winning a premiership.

Hopefully this humbles them all & they wake up.

Everything about that game was predictable. Only this time we gave up a 20 point lead instead of the standard 25-30 point lead.

Anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional.

This has been coming ever since we struggled in large parts against North and West Coast.

We don’t apply pressure and we can’t/don’t want to tackle anymore.

How did this team win a flag!?! Honestly, a bunch of one way runners when the game is on the line. 

Don't worry, Ive already filed a missing persons report for Mitch Brown.

Mitch brown never to play again. Just leave weiderman in.

Too beaten and bruised in that final quarter, and to their credit, Collingwood's ball use cut us to shreds.

Going to be a long two weeks.

It's very unusual for me to show negativity on this site but our form has been extremely worrying lately. We seriously need to get out of the habit of capitulating after being 20+ points up but our forwardline is a total mess atm. We simply don't look like scoring.

Something's not right. The bye has come at the perfect time.

May out hurt but that last quarter was predictable. There is enough talent so can only conclude it mindset

Look at who we play after the bye, I’m confident if one win. The crows.

Lets get Goodwin back punting and on the beers, our clearance work is shot. 
Harmes, Sparrow and Nibbler fumble more than baby with a bar of soap.

We can’t handle the pressure, we play slow long dumb football. 
Can’t run out games, it’s like we are unfit. We sit off teams and watch them waltz it through our structure (and that never changes, so we are cooked there)

Hope no one got back to back tattoos…

The rolling zone is a steaming pile of dung at the moment.

We have no ability to close down space and shut a team down, even for 10 minutes of a quarter to wrestle the game back on out terms.

Forward craft, play, lack of leads, lack of crumbing, kicking to the same spot far too often.... shizen houzen.

Clarry's one extra handball or two through the middle instead of a quick kick inside 50 is killing this team.  Teams have worked out the bang bang bang bringing someone off the square.  You have to go over and inside 50 with the quick kick.

A stack of work to do from here to get this slightly deerailed train back on track

Gawn, Turner, Petty all shot which gives an alibi.  Jackson shouldn't escape criticism for his poor effort when asked to step up.  Tracc really struggling.  Two weeks to get it right.

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air. A Magpie win against the Demons wo

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
