NON-MFC: Round 22, 2022



Recommended Posts


Still not sure who I want to win out of Syd & C'wood to increase the chances  we finish in the top 4  IF we lose to Brisbane (yes, sorry, I'm looking at the pessimistic case). I think in that case we want C'wood to thrash Sydney and Sydney to not get their percentage up in the last round? Views?

I hope someone new comes into the footy market in the next broadcast contract.

Kayo is the worst app I’ve ever used. A big international player will surely wipe the floor with the garbage tech we have to put up with.

From what I’ve read everyone is pushing for their own commentary on all games. That at least gives us an option to avoid BT.

No, we never wish well to Collingwood. Sydney to win by the smallest of margins. They (Pies) then lose again against Carlton and drop of top 4. That would mean that we either win against Brisbane, Sydney loses against St Kilda (wishful thinking) or Freo to draw/lose.

Best scenario ....Coll beat swans but lose to Carlton r23.

We beat lions we finish 2ND. Pies % is putrid.

Cant rely on Stkilda helping us and swans % will likely finish higher than ours.

Why do posters want swans to win. We cant finish  2nd. Imagine relying on Saints to do the right thing by us. Hilarious!

You all must really hate Collingwood...lol

I think most of us believe we are a good chance for the premiership as long as we are top 4, so not necessary to finish second.

Would come down to which team  "Melbourne or Sydney"won by the most next week. Myself I would rather play Collingwood or Geelong in the first week.

You do realise it’s harder for us to maintain second if Magpies beat the Swans ? lol 🤦‍♂️

Exactly, best case scenario for us is equalization of points. Then percentage will be like a flip of a coin.

If Pies win, we are likely 3rd, but FW final at the G against Coll if we beat Brisbane 

But Sydney look a lot better

So the reigning premier must fear some teams (e.g. Geelong or Sydney)? Not the best attitude to have going to September if you ask me.

Have a missed the retirement of the red Sherrin - why are Sydney and the Pies playing with a yellow ball?

P.S. Sydney will win this. Simply because they played North last week!

Why is there a problem with having a preference?

When I go to the Pub I'll eat anything...  But it's perfect OK that I prefer an Eye Fillet over a Parma

Fear no team but we still need to finish top four.

Do wonder how much last week has taken out of Collingwood

And expect last night to do the same to Carlton.

Would love to play Geelong first up but not sure we can finish fourth.

I literally think we are a better chance to beat Swans away than to win a final at the MCG, where we’ve been horrible for all of the second half of the year. Conversely we haven’t lost an interstate game yet.

Normally I'll barrack for the result the suits us best but in this instance i don;t care. I just want to see the pies lose because i'm sick to the back teeth watching them win tight matches

And yes, I hate them as well

    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

    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.
