In a time when we can’t buy goals, Melksham kicks four and he isn’t top vote getter for everyone?

I love Petty but come on, people.

Was the difference

Bit mystified by the praise heaped on Petty. May was much better. And I thought Gawn was outstanding. Brayshaw had a heap of disposals, but many of them were terrible.

 

I watched the replay this morning because I thought I must have missed something about Petty's game watching from the lower level of seating last night. But no, nothing changed. I saw a serviceable game, nothing more. Petty gave away three unnecessary free kicks (a quarter of Carlton's total received). He has a bad habit of pushing his opponent in the back when caught behind (see the Pies' crucial last goal last week). Yes, he saved a couple of goals, but isn't that a defender's role? Agree that May's game was far superior. Curnow's lack of influence had more to do with Carlton's delivery (or lack thereof) to him. It seems to me that many people casting votes here are influenced by the TV commentary rather than using their own eyes..

Honourable mentions;

Christian Salem

Adjudication;

Despite the disparity of free kicks. forward fifty free kicks favoured the Blues. These are 'gold tickets' in close games. Fortunately Carlton's forwards couldn't  deliver.

Broadcasters;

Back to plan B contenders triumph pretenders sent packing.

Overall Comment;

Cathartic and season defining

 

 

Erratum:

Agree. Petty played a good quality game. He is a favourite on here though. May was better imo

A fair take. I hadn’t heard the TV commentary when I did my votes and maybe had him a little high but I had really liked the way he played Curnow on the night. I watched it again and agree disposal to him wasn’t flash but Petty had the aerobic capacity to go with Curnow and to hold a guy leading the Coleman to 1 goal and 1 inside 50 mark wasn’t a bad effort. 

Thought some of the frees that went against him were brutal as well.

Can I give all 21 to Melky. He actually kicked 5 goals if the BB out of bounds wasn't called and he made the tackle on Silvagni at the death which should have been holding the ball, and was every time against us in the same part of the ground the week before. Should have been 6 goals including the sealer.

… and we shouldn’t forget who fed the ball out to Kozzy which resulted in THAT goal. 👍🏽

4 votes for Salem is a big standout here. And before everyone reminds me of his injury and missing games, 4 votes is still a massively understanding for a man of his capability. Hoping he can find some late form.

    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
