What They Are Saying at Moorabool Street

Cameron is a fantastic footballer.

Great hands, one of the best kicks in the AFL (including his field kicking), high footy iq, athletic, huge tank and great hands

In terms of his goal kicking, a challenge he faces against us is he is at his most dangerous when he turns his opponent around and runs back inside 50 with the flight of the ball and marks. 

Which works great against most teams. 

But we always have our deep spare, meaning instead of running back into an open 50, Cameron is running straight towards may, petty, Lever or Gus.

Good luck with that.

..and he knows it.

Didn't Dangerfield leave Adelaide to win premierships?

Awwww. Take the word flag and replace the 'a' with an 'o'

Dangerfield wanted to go to Geelong to be closer to family ( in Fish Creek ) 

In that respect his move has been a tremendous success 

Good for him !!  LEL !

Are you sure it’s Fish Creek? Fish Creek is on the other side of Wilson’s Prom and from Geelong it would take longer to get there than to fly to Adelaide.

We have been sent down to that Dump every year since before the Rev was coach

Meanwhile other teams never play there!!!

yet more inside Corruption 

It was a lot different when we weren't very good ... we were in that lower bracket of Melbourne teams shunted around everywhere.  Like it or not we had to cop it until we came good

But we're coming off a flag and despite what the naysayers would have you believe, our crowd numbers have been more than acceptable this season

We are pushing 65,000 members yet only 500 Demon supporters can attend the game played on a wintry Thursday night.  Terrible scheduling

I'm all for more prime-time FTA games But they need to get the right match-ups in the right city's on the right days

Demons at Cats on a wintry Thursday night doesn't come into 2 of those categories

It wasn't so long ago that maximising crowd numbers was no.1 on the agenda

So we get to watch a game at home or at the pub when the venue is 1 hour away

Play the game at Docklands under the roof and compensate the Cats home ground loss with a higher dividend when they hand out the cash at year's end

Mind you, anywhere, anytime, anyway still applies with regards to the winning of the game.  But that's not my point

It's the people's game so allow the supporters to attend a blockbuster fixture

Rant Over!!!

Agreed. This is a Fan exodus from the AFL

Internally The MFC Football Department are probably happy to play in hostile territory against a serious opponent 

Us v Them

I just can’t see them matching Oliver, Petracca and Viney. Our dynamic and more powerful midfield was the reason in the PF and it’ll be the difference once again. Thank god, all 3 of them are in ripping form. 
 

Biggest threat is Jeremy Cameron. If Petty can tighten up on him we’ll be golden. 

Those three have started to get going the last two weeks as well. Plus harness, sparrow, anb. Always feel confident when the midfield are up and about.

I hate Geelong withh a passion, but now I like playing them becaue it give us another chance of twhpping their @sses. The only thing better than beating them after the siren in Rd 23 would have been do it in front of packed house of their feral supporters. Bring on Thursday night!

If there is one thing in life I can’t handle is losing to Geelong. The fire of a thousand suns is not as burning hot as my hatred of the Geelong Football Club, it’s coach, it’s player or it’s dumpy stadium filled with hick supporters.

Please let’s destroy these *insert 190 different swear words*

One thing that really does BOTHER me is the Home town Bias that the Umpires will afford to Jeelong because of their Rabid, Scum Supporters shouting loudest coz our ten or so just cant get into the ground! Not dissimilar to the farce that was Adelaide last week!

I truly believe the best matchup for Cameron is Hibberd.

I'm afflicted with many Geelong supporters in my life and was literally just thinking tonight that we are now into the second decade since they won a premiership. Great meme.

Gawny speaks about this being a pretty fierce rivalry these days so I'm hoping for a strong outing from the lads. I think they have an advantage playing on their home deck, even though we scraped over the line the last time we played there. Will be a good game

Here’s something I prepared earlier.

Guess which team (other than Geelong, of course) has played the most times at Kardinia Park this century?

Melbourne. 18 times.

Guess which team has played the least times?

Collingwood. Zero. (Oh and Essendon once, Hawthorn and Carlton thrice.)

The lack of integrity and fairness in the fixture is, to me, the biggest blight on our great game. What elite, professional sporting league in the world would allow such a discrepancy to occur, where an ‘away’ team, a so-called big club, doesn’t play at another team’s home venue for over 20 years, while another team plays there almost every friggin’ year? It infuriates me.

It’s like telling Manchester United they don’t need to play at Bournemouth, ever, while Liverpool does.

I am sick to death of the fixture’s inherent inequity, and our collective acceptance of it (or is it apathy).

If we can’t have a pure 34-game home-and-away season (which would be fair and ideal for an 18-team comp), then let’s have a 17-game season. Play each team once, alternate between playing at home one season and away the next, no questions asked, no compromises entertained. Collingwood plays down at Geelong, it’s a sell-out, so be it.

People forget that for the first 90 years of the VFL, the fixture was built on playing each team twice, home and away. There were 8 teams and 14 rounds in the first VFL season in 1897. This nonsense that we have to be wedded to a 22-round season no matter the number of teams we have is, well, nonsense. The 22-round season only came into effect when the league had expanded to 12 teams in 1925. When the league moved to 14 teams in 1987, the season inexplicably remained at 22 rounds. 

Now, of course, the fixture is a complete mess having strayed more and more from first principles, leading to the quite absurd scenario pointed out at the top of this post and illustrated in the attached table.

  • This is the game.  Without Stewart, potentially without Stanley.  I’m for once, not confident at all.

This is what you get following a team that hasn't bottomed out since colour TV was invented. Imagine going into so many games confident of a win that it's a surprise when you're expecting to lose.

    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

    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
