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.

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.

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.

Bs Bris need to win by 70+ to overtake us percentage, not happening

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.

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air. A Magpie win against the Demons wo

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
