Petracca picks and chooses when he wants to show up, 2nd worse game I've seen him play behind the Freo loss. Gawn terrible, ANB an absolute momentum killer, Koz anonymous, the entire back seven were terrible tonight. Definitely not going back to back this year.

You were watching the wrong game.

+93 disposals.

+22 CPs.

+20 clearances.

+24 inside 50s.

+1 extra day break on our opponent, who was coming off back-to-back six day breaks.

That should be a 5-goal win, not a loss.

But we bomb it long and play a total momentum killer who is never dropped.

Hope your smiling now Salem after an easy goal missed.

Cant wait for the we will smash Carlton predictions.

We have won one game in Melbourne in last 10.

So many passages where we played without dare. Therein lies the difference. The number of times they rope-a-doped and streamed out from the back was embarrassing.

They definitely got all the 50/50 calls in the last but it's the FORWARD LINE folks.

Is Joel Smith the saviour?

No should have played JVR tonight & dropped the momentum killer in ANB.

Goodwin was outcoached tonight. At the ground it was clear as day in how Pies setup for the sling shot. 

Goodwin did nothing to counter it. The forward pressure was way off as the just waltz it out and the game looked exactly like it did against the Dogs. 

This time we don’t have loading to blame.

People keep saying clubs are playing out of their skin and umpires and blah blah blah

 

nope. Collingwood have won 11 straight. 11. You don’t play out of your skin 11 games in a row. They’re they real deal. Manic pressure , elite kicking and super efficiency. Wish it was us!!!

our fwd line is a shambles and I don’t even know where to start with some decision making

jesus wept

what a farce 

But of course it’s just a game .we don’t have bombs raining down on our heads and stuff so yeah. Perspective

 

ps I hate losing to Collingwood can we please stop that Simon

One team kicked straight from fewer opportunities, the other had more shots at goal and kicked erratically. In a close game, that always makes the difference. Misses by Gawn and Petracca were particularly costly, as was Petty's idiotic push which led to the clinching goal. And the final-quarter fadeout raises yet again the question as to whether the players are as fit as when Burgess was in charge of that department. I suspect not.

Pathetic and shameful performance. 

We've learnt absolutely nothing this year. Complete flat track bully until too teams up their pressure and we crumble like butter.

Defence? What the actual [censored] was that crap?

Defence what game were you watching, we kicked 3 goal to 7 what the hell do you expect, had months to change it up but no, kick to pockets ignore guys running free on the inside, kick to packs after packs.

I wonder if it is the right decision to take Gus out of the backline. Worst game I have seen Petty play and Hibberd was atrocious. Pickett was very selfish and undisciplined. They should have found an excuse to use Harmes - all the other teams use their sub so I don’t understand why we don’t. We seem incapable of playing 4 quarters and constantly give up good leads. Alarm bells are ringing.

A complete reverse of last weeks superb defensive performance against the Dockers and a reversion to the dumb, fast shootout football that saw us last in near identical circumstances to the Bulldogs a fortnight ago.

Hibbo and ANB both had absolute mares tonight and we're still seriously struggling with our conversion rate inside 50. We scored from 24 of our 65 inside 50's while Collingwood took their chances and finished with a conversion rate above 50% (21 scores from 41 entries).

    A LITTLE MAGIK by George On The Outer

    With the game against Carlton all but lost, there was little chance the Demons could pull this one from out of the fire … with a little bit of magiK!   MagiK with a “K” in the form of Kysaiah Pickett, who miraculously managed to get foot to ball in the dying seconds to secure the win for the Demons. Along with plenty of magiK from Jake MelKsham during the game. Marking the ball while lying on his back, dancing through a bevy of Carlton backmen to score and then marking among three tall

    GREY INTO WHITE by KC from Casey

    The rains came as predicted to Casey Fields on Sunday along with a fair lashing of wind that made for the type of game that you expect in such inhospitable conditions - a grim, dour festival of scrappy football made for strong-bodied sides such as the undefeated competition leaders. And so it came to pass that the Casey Demons were able to trample over Carlton’s VFL side in the final half of their Round 21 match up to maintain their undefeated record for 2022. The victory under grey skies w

    DOWNFALL? by Whispering Jack

    Half a season ago, Saturday night’s Round 22 match up between Melbourne and Carlton would have been looked upon as a mouthwatering contest to determine positions at the top of the AFL mountain in the lead up to an exiting finals series for both clubs. However, this once much-anticipated contest is today considered almost as a consolation event between two of the most disappointing teams in the competition. At least the Blues have some sort of excuse for their downfall — they have been dogge

    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
