Well, I am off to bed. Been a big day of celebration over my way with a birthday in the family. 
 

will be watching over breakfast and a coffee.

I have confidence in our systems and structures.

The only thing that concerns me is the inside info Burgess has on our player stengths/weakeness, game structures etc. 

Crows will be all out to get a fast start.  We will need to be alert early for new tactics, after all they surprised us with a winning game plan last year, without Burgess. 

If we can get the fast start, kick straight and take the crowd noise out we will be well on our way.

Had hoped this would be a % booster and we win by the 6-8 goals.  Now thinking a win of 3-4 goals, even without a recognised ruckman.  A game to bank the 4 points and move on.

The pressure’s right back on today in the absence of our two ruckmen. 

Our list management and recruiters have done a solid job in recent years but it was obvious at draft time last year that there was potential for today’s scenario. Apart from Max and Dogga, all we had was 195cm Majak Daw in the twilight of his career and the likes of TMac, Weed, the Browns and maybe Tomlinson who are makeshift at best. They  sidestepped the issue at the National Draft and didn’t address it at Midseason Draft time so let’s hope that it doesn’t blow up in our face today.

WCW ... hope you have an enjoyable day at the footy.

Where is everyone else going to watch the match? If anywhere. I'm going to the Sporting Globe in Richmond.

Yep! Especially when any of the boys are unduly disparaged. 😉

🧙‍♀️🧙‍♀️🧙‍♀️🧙‍♀️🧙‍♀️
JK, of course.
But M Brown, the walking vomit emoji (on DL, anyways), is one such player.  Shazza Neal-Bullen is very fond of “Mitchy.” Join the dots. 😁

I’m waiting to board and there’s a group of sadsack Carlton supporters. I thought, look at those poor chumps, dejectedly going home to Sadelaide having attended last night’s match. But now I just hope that’s not me tomorrow. 😬

Hypothetical

You're in hospital likely to be discharged today after spending the day in ED yesterday with a cardiac 'issue'.

Assuming discharge goes ahead, would you:

- watch the Dees game live on the TV

- only watch after knowing the result?

I wouldn’t waste any time Luci, I’d send Harmes straight to Burgo.

We’ve had great ruckmen for the last, what 30 years?, and we have been pretty [censored] in all that time - only last year did we win the premiership. I’d suggest that  ruckmen are simply show bag fillers, and we can still win this easily  even without our 2 best big men - because we have strength all over the ground and a midfield that don’t need silver service to perform.  Go Dees

(please don’t tell Max and LJ I called them show bag fillers).

We should still be fresh and after last year surely wont take them lightly. Big job for Weid to halve the ruck contests and our mids to shift to sharking their taps. Looking forward to seeing another week of ANB, Spargo, Koz and TBed swarm the forward pressure.

    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
