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

Same I remember playing this mob can't remember what year, late Bailey or early roos years and we needed to win to have a chance at finals and we turned in an all time inept stinker. Only matched by that last round to make finals performance against the pies.

That was 2016 second last round. Needed to win to have a mini-elimination final in the last round at Kardinia. Think Hogan missed a sitter or two. Got done by 100 pts the next week anyway. Ahhh the good old days!

How about 04? Needed to beat these barnburners at Princes Park to seal top 4 and didn't...

EDIT: Nope I'm thinking of the 2006 season. Lost to them in round 1 and then again later in the year.

Carlton won 3 games for the season. Two against Melbourne. We would've finished 4th had we won both. 

We would have dislodged Sydney from top 4 and faced WC in Perth.

That could be a bad omen. Carlton once tried to rebrand themselves as the Cockatoos in the 1930's!

That was the one we needed and we inexplicably dropped it.

From memory, Pagan created a Dad's Army list that year that had a really low ceiling. He got a decent year out of them in 2004 but they fell off a cliff in '05.

There you go, ANOTHER example! Always felt that 06 season could have been anything if we got top 4. That demolishing of the Dogs the week before was something else.

Yeah that's right, so many 'nearly men' on that list like Cory Mcgrath, Daniel Harford, Glenn Bowyer, Heath Scotland etc

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

Agree 100%, if we don't then we're not winning the flag this year so doesn't matter where we finish anyway.

2006, Carlton won 3 games for the season - 2 of them against us at Docklands. Cost us top 4.

Edit should've kept reading this was covered above 🤣

04 was similar Gonz, we literally just needed that second last round win for top 4 and Fev went nuts.

Need to put these guys out of business. They just won their grand final, now it's real business time.

For what it is worth. Last week I presume a lot of people kept away from the footy because of the rain that was forecast.  It didn’t rain at all during the game. BOM in its hourly projections said it was going to rain (The icon symbols can be misinterpreted and therefore be misleading- the way I read it, if there is even a small chance of showers it will show up a ‘rain icon’ , if that makes sense). 
The app I used (Windy) draws on BOM data but interprets it differently- in my mind more realistically! It said the showers would be gone by 7pm and that is what happened.

Right now BOM says it should be raining where I live- and it isn’t and it hasn’t been! It indicates (the hourly forecast)  for Richmond for showers right now , all day and through to tomorrow night and through to Sunday!. My guess is that this is unlikely, sure there will be some showers but not all the time (therefore is somewhat misleading).  My app says there will be some showers this arvo and more importantly showers tomorrow from about 4 to 7pm and then dry. Obviously the forecast will change between now and then.

Why the long dribble you may ask? In short , BIG game tomorrow night, we need to OUTNUMBER Carlton supporters and show LOUD support for our boys. Surely the Cripps decision is incentive to turn up. I would urge you to spur some of your fair weathered friends to turn up. And if there happens to be some showers tomorrow night, keep in mind it is only falling water.

Also, keep in mind that no matter how loud you barrack at home, the boys can’t hear you. As always, not having a go at the elderly, Covid concerned, distance issued supporters.

One last thing. For those of us that turn up tomorrow night, just remember that you are not going to the opera, you are going to the footy- make some bloody noise!

their midfield depth will be a real concern for them, they can probably match us when they have the 3 big guns in there, but the moment they rotate we should have a clear advantage. 

I also think Gawn/Jackson will run Pit around which could be a huge challenge for him. 

I think we really need a statement win, you've got the Blues with their season on the line, i think we need to really put them to the sword

Jackson is going to spend a fair amount of time rucking against Silvagni. Luke simply has to have an impact tomorrow night.

Pittonet has a decent record against Gawn - but when we have Jackson as well it's a tough ask.  Kinda surprised they don't pay De Konig.  Haven't seen much of them but I remember him torching Sydney earlier this year with his contested marking.

Is it a matter of with McKay and Curnow they can't really afford to rest immobile rucks forward?  If that's the case, if Jackson leaves is De Konig a player we should be sounding out?  Or did I just see his greatest game?

    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

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
