I've lost interest in the games on this evening. I've flicked over to the Commonwealth Games where we've already snagged another 3 gold

I flipped to Kayo Cazoo Golf Open .... no idea where it is or if anyone good playing but the best thing is BT is NOT  on the commentary team.

EDIT - update .. it is the Wales Open.  Don't recognise any name in the field, (though all are awesome as they must regularly shoot well under 100 😱)

Are you serious?  There would be hundreds of brilliant  child athletes in America and Europe  that have never heard of the Commonwealth games. Its embarrassing. Dump it.

Give me AFL in Bangkok anyday.  Even the Corporate Olympics are boring.  Gold medals? Who did those social media knobs  beat?

Embarrassing .

Bring on Carlton next week. Thats action

The flag is Geelongs to lose, sealed top spot and resting blokes. Would be nice spot to be in

Had we kicked straight in about three more games we would be safely in top 2 as well.

MEMO Goody - big task on the off season.  Kick bloody goals, both set shots and under pressure.  I don't know how one teaches that sort of thing, but then I am not on the big bucks either.

Just because you've given up doesn't mean the rest of us have.

It won’t matter who wins because at present our forward cannot kick a winning score. Top that off with opposition teams have worked us. How do you alter those two items?

That's rubbish od. Pretty sure we won 8 days ago, forwards kicked a score, Freo didn't "work us out".

We had the opportunity to kick enough last night and let chances go begging. 13.11 usually enough to win and we left a handful of goals out on the field. It's frustrating but it's not doom and gloom.

Poor kicking Is poor football. And in the end we didn’t win. Yep and in between the dogs and pies beat us. It’s not rubbish, just keep at us and we will crumbly in the last quarter. We kicked 2 goals to 4.2 in the last. Nothing poor there just outscored in fact doubled our total.

You said our forwards cannot kick a winning score - they can

You said we have been worked out - we haven't

Um so if Sydney and Brisbane win by enough we slip to 5th correct?

Sounds like a multi worth having given the way things have gone for us this year ie relying on  others as we continue to merde Le bed 

Don't forget the maggots will be instructed to make the scores skewed to either get us down over the next two rounds to sit as low as possible in the eight, and that is a fact.You watch the Frees over the next two weeks.

I think we have seen enough to disarm Geelongs plan - similar to Pies. You guessed it, unrelenting pressure all over the ground with a sprinkle of defensive jobs and hard tags. .

whether we can execute is another matter. Next two weeks will give us a real look into the attitude and commitment.

I reckon Sydney are a real shot to be one of the grand finalist for this year.

Collingwood or Geelong the other.

We’ve just been far too inconsistent since round 11 and starting to lose games in Victoria on a regular basis to be considered a flag contender at this stage.

We do play #freekickcarlton next week. Expect Curnow and McKay to get a few soft ones paid.

If you allow rules to be broken across the spectrum of the game, any team can win. Cite holding, pushing, scragging and throwing and winging. Along with rulemakers favourites.

If Maxy and Clarry were paid frees every time they were infringed, our differential would be better than the Dogs. Not happening. Umps seem to have a mindset to only pay us obvious frees, where there is no room for interpretation. Must think we don't need them.

If so, it's time for them to re-think. 😁

I can imagine how Langdon's family felt about him having an "attempted burial" during a game. It was a disgrace and a terrible look for a potential team of thugs.

Great to see the W. Bulldogs gone for 2022. Just goes to show that cheating and getting the rub of the green week in week out doesnt pay dividends. Couldnt of watched if we played them in an elimination final with the umpires applauding Bont as he runs down the race. Grossly overated team.  2016 flag was a fluke assisted by the maggots.

I wish posters would stop saying the other clubs have figured us out everytime we lose.

What if Geelong lose to the Suns in QLD. Its possible.Theyre not the same team away from the cattery.

Are you going to say the Suns have 'worked them out'.

Only in AFL with AFL commentators could a player not get a free for either the initial tackle or the pile on just because he had said something 'insulting' during the week.  What a circus.

    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
