Does anyone know what driving to Kardinia for a game is like? Trying to decide if I should train it or drive it. I live west side so would get on the train at Footscray. 

Get the train to south Geelong, go to the pub, Barwon Club or sawyers Arms… maybe grab a burger at Kardinia Cafe for a ‘cultural’ experience.

celebrate the win long and hard, fall asleep in someone’s flowerbed  👍

The new Geelong theme song for when they play the Dees:

We are Geelong, we’ve always got the flu
We are Geelong; half the game spent on the loo,
We play the game, the way Maxy wants us to play
At home or far away,

With our pants down below our knees, you don’t give a phark
Down at Kardinia Park.

Worried about a match up of de Koning on Brown, lucky Stewart out but can’t see Brown matching DK in the air

Will be a challenge for DK to hold up their backline without Steward. Perhaps a key part of Brown's role tonight might then need to take DK away from the play and being a decoy. Dees play the game through Fritsch and other forwards.

Brown is good on the lead, not when they dump it on his head.

I really really pray that the umpires don’t feature in this game. I can take a loss but not another +3 goal advantage due to soft frees or 50/50 calls in the f50. Hawkins will no doubt flop for a few so let’s hope the umpires are not influenced by the feral crowd. 

It should be a good contest but I don’t think we can read too much into the result given the time of year and obvious disparity of the grounds dimensions and how that will effect a teams game plan and ball movement.

if umpired well and fairly, Dees by 6 goals.

Wouldn’t worry much about that, Brown hasn’t matched anyone in the the air this year & we’re doing alright

I was gonna PT it there but am now in the city, gonna catch a ride with a friend, meeting her at Parliament station. I’m with another friend whom I just ran into (Geelong supporter) and neither of us has been up the posh end of the city in decades. So we’re like MaryLou and Billy Bob Joe visiting the big smoke for the day. He’s had several ppl call out “go cats!” and “carna catters!!” etc. All’s I’ve got is a very distinguished elderly gentleman stepping out of the Yves St Laurent shop as we passed, and he says, “well, as long as it’s not a resounding defeat, I believe a loss this evening wouldn’t be the end of the world.” 😂

I've paid the $20 as a back up. I'm currently having a pre game drink in the Sports Bar and mamasan assures me "all good for you"!

That is the way I watch week in, week out. It is a good coverage and would be worth the 20 bucks.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
