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).

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    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
