GAMEDAY: Rd 21 vs Collingwood



Recommended Posts

I think its funny that the Toothless brigade are keen for a little gingivitis….

Why can you never solve a crime in the Pies cheer squad? They all have the same DNA and no dental records…

Wowee! Pro violence and a dig at mental health in one post. Well done

Really? I am having a dig at mental health, because I think it's ludicrous for every second player to come out and hide behind mental health every time they have to deal with a negative narrative? 

That is the epitome of minimising mental health, and it actually takes away from those who truly are battling mental health issues. He was fair game getting stuck into Gawn, but he can't cop it the other way? Give me a break.
A kid who really is suffering from mental health issues, is not putting himself out there like he has. He was happy to cop the praise, so he needs to be happy to cop the negativity coming his way.

As for violence, I said I hope he gets tackled high for no frees. I did not say I hope we injure him.

Get off your weird high horse.

You know nothing about the nature of his mental health. Nor do I. But you are saying he is faking mental health because he can't take the public backlash. That's called minimising the complexities of mental health

Empathy not your strong suit, obviously

Carry on

Tonight we'll continue to build on last week and show the competition how good we really are.

You are right, I have no idea of the nature of his mental health, and I did not suggest he is faking it. I just find it odd that it wasn't until a journo prompted him to comment on it, that he suddenly said, oh yeah it's taken a toll. Seems very convenient.

I have all the empathy in the world for anyone who is battling mental health issues. I have no empathy for clowns who put themselves firmly in the limelight and when they don't receive the reaction they hope for, they conveniently say how difficult it's been. Was it also his poor mental health that caused him to post defamatory Tik Tok videos talking trash about women?! 

Collingwood has a long history of letting their players get away with pathetic behaviour off the field. Ginnivin seems like another in a long line of absolute tools, who is being encouraged by his club and the fans to behave poorly.

Sorry @binman - should’ve been clearer: Bala as in Balaclava! A much easier trip, but can sometimes take ages to get on the train afterwards with these size crowds, especially with kids.

Then I've got nothing!

We are a well structured and disciplined side.

We are playing a rather arrogant, high risk to reward team. If a few words can get them to try a different approach, then they will be playing into our hands.

We will build our wall and have a strategy to blunt their corridor runs.

I can't see them going with another strategy other then fast footy and pressure.

We will outlast them. They could drain themselves early with having to chase us, and to get the ball in front of us, then all the better.

I reckon, it will be the 3rd quarter that decides this game. Don't let them get momentum and we have this. 

 Salem to hit his straps.

Petracca to kick straight. 

Kossie and Sparg's to light it up.

 Gawn, to feed Oliver with a duck entree, a Mag pie, and the sherrin on a platter.

Be ruthless.

Go Dees

It appears on the weather forecasts apps that I am looking at that most off the rain (showers) should stop by 7pm tonight.

So for all of those who can , rock up to the G tonight and see the mighty Dees crush the Pies…..If I’m wrong, apologies in advance… come and see us crush them in the wet.

On another note: does anyone have any clever tips for parking at the G? Normally, we train it in from Bala’ but want to make a quicker getaway tonight with the kids. Any ideas?

Northern side of the MCG parkland, amid the trees within 60 metres of the ground, enter through the corner gate, north-west corner. Park there all the time for night matches, arriving moderately early (and if you have a 'disabled' card, it's free!)

Attendants are really helpful - getaway after the game is a breeze, as well.

Yep, I'm nervous. I hate when there's enough of an pattern to bring superstition and hoodoos into the conversation.

But the opportunity is there to guarantee our spot in the top 4.

Rationale:

Puts us out of reach of Freo & Carlton. Meaning all three of Sydney, Magpies and Brisbane would have to finish ahead of us with at least 15 wins and percentage.

Collingwood's percentage is showing off the fact they've won their last five games by a combined total of less than 5 goals. They could only then pass us by winning both the remaining games (16w total) while we lost the lot.

Sydney play Collingwood next week. Obviously only one of them can get a win which means only one of them could get past us.

So I'll reaffirm; this specific win would guarantee our spot in the top 4, even if we botched the final two rounds.

I can't comment on an individual player but I have some sympathy for Jaded's comments taken generally.  It is a bit like food allergies.  Lots of people jumped onto the glutin intolerance bandwagon (for example) but had no real problem.  The only good thing to come of it was that as result there is more warning labelling of food and menus. That must be a great boon to the genuinely glutin intolerant.  I'm not sure that sort of benefit applies with mental health. Perhaps it does.

It’s getting a bit ordinary on here.

Agree.

Let's get back on track.

Confident of a win tonight just as I was last week. Adams missing for Collingwood leaves them with a significant hole which means our midfield MUST dominate tonight.

I'm taking my tin  of Brasso to the game tonight with a clean rag.

Win, lose or draw I'm passing to Ed as he walks of the ground so he can go home tonight and give his Premeirship Medal a quick polish.

Bring on the Filth.

Last Pies game i sat in front of the most foul mouthed, bogan, arrogant and utterly pathetic supporters ive ever encountered in my football viewing days. One even coughed all game right on top of us until i finally moved at 3/4 time.

The crowd seemed to be worth at least 3 goals and being a Collingwood home game and the way the game unfolded, they definitely had the louder voice.

We need to turn up both on the field and off it.

With the inclement weather on the cards i think it will be close and decided by a few kicks in the last.

Dees by 9.

    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.
