Well if we beat Lions, odds are we play them in Sydney. Are you happy with that?

At least it’s a double chance and to date we haven’t lost interstate this season. 

Depends on margins it could also be at the G.

We have a 39.29% win ratio at the SCG with 11 wins and 17 losses. It hurts we have to rely on other results. But would be depressing to finish 6th and play Richmond after being 10-0. Double chance means we could win the flag despite our form this year. Lose against the Lions and our season is almost certainly done.

Podcast on AFL website this morning from Damien Barrett.

"Ed was right",   with Barrett noting Ed Langdon was right about the Pies being 'one trick" - which he was and many in the media agreed supporting him at the time.

Hopefully it brings a smile to Ed's face this morning after a rock climbing effort probably.

Who would have thought a smart guy could be right!

And a lot of those loses were in the period when we couldn't beat ourselves in an ultra club game.

On the topic of Ed, any reason why Carlton supporters were booing him on the weekend?

Were they sticking up for Collingwood or something?

Maybe Ed said they were all Souv and no laki - who knows, they generally are a pretty dim lot

Either way you can cut through that irony with a Tim Shaw steak knife.

Heads are going to roll at Essendon after that insipid performance. The straw that broke the camels back for sure.

Does North try and win this weekend  avoiding B2B wooden spoons or do they flop around lose and take 1st draft pick.The player will probably refuse to sign up...lol

Yes .Heard this at the ground. It was very half hearted and amusing compared to the loud booing to cripps right through the game. But now I'm glad he beat the wrap so he can deal with the pies on sunday

I couldnt understand why most posters wanted pies to lose. Now we're in real pickle. Pies winning was much better as they have a putrid %. Swans% better than ours. And they play garbage next week.

Think it's just force of habit.

As the blues have a much chance of beating the Pies. If we both lose we stay above pies. Swans will win for sure. Saints nothing to play for

It is a great pity that King didn't get the Saints up over the Pooh Bears.  He flung his body and legs around as if he needed to kick the ball over the grandstand.    On the same topic, Gawn for his first point could have kept his hand on the ball for longer while dropping the ball and wouldn't have needed to chase it with his foot.  It makes you love TMac even more.  The big guy kicked like a back man but now his run, drop and leg are on the same line with mathematical precision.

    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

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    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

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
