What They Are Saying at Princes Park



Recommended Posts

Our competitor fans are back in the doldrums when facing the mighty dees!

Bigfooty:

  • "We need to beat them in clearance" and "Lewis Young to ruck number 1" are mutually exclusive.

  • Start the transitioning process by getting rid of the players who won’t be (or shouldn’t be) on the list next year.

  • Pitt for TDK a no brainer.  The rest is the ol' deckchairs on the Titanic.

  • Pittonet is a must, I don't mind JSOS around the ground but should be a huge no at the centre bounce. Harry should ruck in the F50 instead of sitting 2m off the contest as if he's going to rove it. Infuriating.

  • Needs to watch some Jeremy Cameron footage. If the ball doesn't get to him he finds it himself. Harry has been far too one dimensional lately.

  • Melbourne will be on the rebound, after their loss to the Pies too & a top 4 place in jeopardy, can’t see Demons dropping this one , the game could get nasty, quickly . Keep the fingers crossed we don’t lose Cripps.

  • I'm tipping by the end of this game percentage won't be anything to worry about compared to the doggies, they'll be well ahead. Dees will slaughter us. 

  • Slowly emotionally checking out for the year. The highs were exhilarating and the lows demoralising. I feel exhausted. Still love em.

  • Struggling from above the shoulder

  • Feel we are going to get torched by their smalls on transition.

  • Melbourne:  Oliver, Viney, Petracca, Brayshaw, Gawn, Jackson.  Us: no Hewett, Kennedy, and possibly Cripps...

  • Strange as it seems giving Cripps a week rest(susp) and going all or nothing v the pies appeals to me

  • We will get smashed out of the middle. Going to take something incredible to be otherwise.

  • This could very well be a 15 goal loss. Melbourne will absolutely spank us.

  • Backs to the wall, undermanned, season on the line, MCG, big crowd, ton of support.  These are the games that define clubs.  We pull this off & it’s up there with the great Carlton wins.  Keep the faith, people

  • their form is as poor as ours but they have most of their cattle. not without a shot but could hardly expect us to do too well given the last couple of weeks. more likely we're the team melbourne springboard into the finals from.
    • Poor form?  Beat Freo by plenty at Optus and just lost to red hot Pies. Please can we have some of this “poor form”..

    • exactly, if they are in poor form then what the hell are we in ?

  • Dunno if it’s mentioned already, but we could put all our eggs in the Pies game.  Identify and rest those players this week who would most benefit from the extra recovery (and basically concede this week’s game), and have one last final crack against the Pies.

  • Im the eternal optimist but sadly the season is done. Our 1 wood of clearance and contested ball is seriously compromised without Cripps, Hewitt, and Kennedy. I just don't think it can be recovered from here.

  • I'd give some serious consideration to dropping Harry this week. Omitted. Send him to the ressies and tell him to start taking some actual marks.

    • We aren't going to risk one of our biggest commodities in some suburban cow paddock when its all on the line the next week. Imagine the backlash if he got injured.

    • Seems a bit too bold for Carlton though (fans included). We’d rather go down as a slow sinking ship. In our desperation to see some success, we seem willing to tolerate far less than 100% from our stars, while placing the blame elsewhere by swapping around our ‘bottom 6’. It’s a really bad practice imv.

  • Our form compared to when we played them in the preseason is completely different.  We look a totally different side.  Think they might really get a hold of us

  • Think we got to the bye, then started looking at the fixture & projecting wins, when all we were doing early in the year was taking each game on its merits.  Gunna be tough, but we can win this

  • Almost hoping Cripps gets 1 week, then fingers crossed v the pies we get back a fresh Cripps, Hewett, Kennedy & Zack Williams

  • Melbourne are 4 wins and 6 losses in their last 10 games just like us but I agree after yesterdays performance it feels a world apart in terms of where both sides are at.

I was at the practice game at Docklands when Carlton beat us and their supporters carried on like  they won the GF in March!  

I’ve been waiting all season for this game.   Their supporters, they really irk me. If there wasn’t a Collingwood, they most certainly would be the team I love to hate the most. GO DEES!

As Dees supporters we can all relate to this one ⬆️ right? 😭

 

Thanks for compiling this, Luci. ❤️💙

It’ll be a Carlton win for the ages if they get up and it’ll be one of our worst losses in 5 years. Geez I hope we win.

Will 2021 dees or 17/19 dees turn up

Living in Adelaide most of my friends and colleagues are either Crows or Power supporters. One of my workmates is a Blues fan who didn't shut up for the first 10 to 12 weeks of the season. Haven't heard boo from him in a month or so. Also helps that the two [censored] stain teams here are imploding too.

Can understand why they're not very confident about this game, missing almost their whole midfield, this will be an absolute belting in the middle by our bulls.

There is no way we lose this if we play with last week's intensity, it'll all come down to the lions game.

Carltons odds are wayyyy too short. Which is actually more a reflection on us than them. Punters are confident in Melbourne but not TOO confident. Carlton should be in the $4+ range.

Yeh but Carlton are still a top 8 team... Hard to see odds of $4+ for two top 8 teams going head to head. I get what you're saying though, if we converted all of that midfield dominance into scores against Coll we'd be talking completely difference odds. That's my point, if we can deliver the same and not cough up opportunities we should be golden.

Just look at Saints 9th ($2.36) vs Lions 5th ($1.60) or even Tigers 8th ($1.37) vs Hawks 13th ($3.14) at the MCG.

We've drifted to $4 for the flag though, time to chip in lol?

Can we get a Cripps verdict update from Royal Pde?

A few words were used that will fail the DL auto censor!  The repeatable ones:

  • Won't play finals now so he's back in 2023, how depressing

  • Not worth getting upset over friends. 

  • Life is too short. Don't give them the satisfaction

  • I guess he does wear a navy blue jumper so the verdict shouldn't surprise anyone. ******* w***ers!

  • If you really think He got weeks just for being a Carlton then you are truly delusional.

  • If Carlton supporters want to show thier dissatisfaction, don't attend this weekends Melbourne home game.  20,000 at the MCG will be the feedback the AFL needs and will listen to.

    • Team goes better with supporters support. Roar of affirmation makes it more likely to get free kicks. So make us even marginally less likely to win by some sort of ridiculous boycott .

  • Not surprised he didn't get off the MRP and Tribunal have never given us a break in recent years

  • No don't think he got weeks because he's a Carlton player...Think he got weeks because he isn't a Geelong or Richmond player...

  • And people try to tell me we aren't absolutely shafted by the AFL on a continual basis. If Cripps wore a red or yellow sash he wouldn't have even been sighted. I ******* hate this league. * the AFL.

  • Call it an AFL conspiracy all you want, but once the player is concussed from that action, there was really no coming back from that. Not with how the current rules are implemented, anyway.

  • If Crippa’s name was Trent Cotchin and he played for Richmond, this wouldn’t have even been cited by the MRO.

  • So are we going to contest the tribunal verdict with a further appeal on Thursday night?

  • You are totally correct with what you say about Cotchin & Lynch as they truly are snipers who take cheap shots at players but don`t get pinged for them!!! Selwood takes some cheap shots and is never suspended either, but at least he is not a weak [censored] like those two....

They sound just like DL when an MRP/Tribunal decision doesn't go our way...

  • We were robbed, the Rioli precedent was supposed to save us
  • I hate this league, everyone's against us, even though we've had more help than you can poke a stick at
  • If we miss the finals, last one in to Naughton's is a rotten egg.

Geez they’re a lot more switched on than I expected

 

Especially re Cotchin and Lynch and the whole “world is agin’ us “ Schtick. They sound like many Melbourne supporters BD *

Melb now $1.24 vs Carl $4.10 drifting as expected.

Dont want to get too cocky. Im just starting to feel a bit uneasy about this one. 

We should comfortably dispose of Carlton and Brisbane. Nothing against those two. We are a top 4 side that needs to start getting real.

    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

    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
