Jack Viney - he’s the man that sets the standard - outstanding 

Great team effort well done Dees 

No Luke Jackson singing the song after the game - wtf is that about 

He went off for concussion testing with 4 minutes to go. Somewhere in the rooms getting assessed

What are you talking about? 

Brayshaw was great tonight ... on his left a lot as that's where the space was

Opposition players are drawn to his right side kicking and are then caught out

Time and time again

And then Brayshaw kicked deep to advantage or safety.  He was a driving force all night

How about giving credit where credit is due

Yep I know their bad but I loath the Bulldogs more. 

Again… GEELONG! 
Bulldogs aren’t a threat to us. Geelong are. Try to put your intense hate for the Bulldogs aside just for one night. I did it late last year when an Essendon win (against I can’t remember who) was beneficial to us. I barracked for Essendon. ESSENDON! At one stage I heard myself saying ‘come on Jake’ (Stringer. STRINGER!). Now, if I can do that, you can too. I have faith in you, Ang. You got this!!

Great win against a side that really cannot handle wet weather, and a game style they don’t seem to be able to adjust. The wet suited our contested style and relentless pressure - with more fumbles and more dropped marks they were just given zero opportunity to play how they wanted.

Backs were impressive.  Setup and talk behind the ball was back where it needs to be and stay.  Petty might not get the touches, but the spoils and blanketing of players is crucial.  Rivers had some important defensive clearances early, and hopefully Lever recovers fine.

Viney probably having a career best season, absolute beast.  With Clarry tagged, Petracca and Brayshaw covered well.  Saw some criticism for Sparrow but thought that was a far better effort, better disposal and involvement. 

The negatives for mine were obviously Weideman just having no involvement.  Some said in the game day he was competing in the conditions but I rarely saw that.  ANB had a rough game, didn’t play to conditions and even before injury I genuinely thought Jackson was disinterested.  Weak in the contest, little follow up - almost had an individual moment of brilliance before the main break  but otherwise disappointing. 

Reckon on that kind of form and pressure we’re perfectly ready for the Pies!  Go Dees. 

Perfect summation. 

We need to remember that Freo have been horrible in the wet this year. This game goes to show that winning contested ball is the key to whether we win or lose. It's not talent.

Shout out to Melksham. His place in the team is assured.

Gus is much craftier than our other mids.  He's also a solid D as we've seen all year but doesn't offer the line breaking run of Hibberd (to a lessor extent but it's still there), Hunt or, at times, Rivers.

Quick reaction time and smarts in terms of decision making (handball vs quick kick vs roll and gun vs the old one/two).  Certainly has more tricks in his bag.

Speaking of Hibberd i thought he was super tonight.

I reckon Hibberd should get another run around next year. 

Gus in the midfield let's Salem do his job too (as the half back link up). If we absolutely have to wouldn't mind him going back to a defensive wing position.

We have the cattle it's just putting them in the right paddock.

Pretty poor coverage with replays often taking precedence over live action, overlaid by commentary box prattle. 

Who was it that said Hibbo might have a hamstring problem when he sprinted from the ground? 🤦🏻‍♂️

Backline was so much better balanced with Hunt providing some defensive cover and speed across half back.

Gus helped the midfield get more uncontested possessions and cover on the defensive side. But the wet weather made his indiscriminate hacking of the ball forward look good. And Brodie and Mundy had about 3000 disposals each, but didn’t have the space or skills to do much with them. 

Fritsch was excellent. Weid and Melk not exactly a pack crashing force, but they did enough to panic Pearce, Cox and Young out of intercepts. Apart from that stretch in the 3rd where Mundy put himself in our bomb out spot and the talls couldn’t come across and impact.

I still don’t think we go anywhere without an uncontested kicking game to keep teams honest and some miracle recoveries or performances from tall forwards. But when we can win in the air the ground game still has a lot going for it

Let it go.

Congratulations, not that it counts for anything but this is the first facepalm I’ve given out on DL.

Did Gus cut you off in traffic or something? The bashing is ridiculous .

They enjoyed that win as did I.

Probably had some truths put to them, though the week. 

We are starting games so well. Sets us up to be front runners, and playing the game on our own terms.

To catch us, the opposition have to play well and take risks. 

Winning can be contagious, onwards Dees.

Guaranteed to play finals now. It’s significant because it’s the first time we’ve played consecutive finals series since 05-06!

I honestly think out of the 4 games this was our biggest challenge. Freo are a great defensive side and had to play them at home.

Pies next Friday night is going to be huge. Let’s pay them back!

Well alright I will have a go but I dare say as soon as I see the Dogs slime ball coach or the first throw by the dogs that isn’t paid a free kick I will be off them. So I might last five minutes.

Is it realistic for him to have his first 'scratch match' after missing most of the season then play at finals pace?  Sureit would be great but a huge risk.

    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.
