I thought we got a good run in general

What pisses me right off is the difference in the HtB calls last night vs Coll game - last night was much more reasonable, last week the Umps were far harsher, 2 goals to Coll in particular 

Last night's non call on Silvagni, vs last weeks call against Jordan

Yeah you're not wrong on the Htb inconsistency. We did get a reasonable rub of the green but nothing horrible, mainly 50-50s

Looks like he taps at the ball

Yea he does to bring it to ground so opposition can't mark it. So many can't see what the plan is.

Kozzie kicked that goal because he was positioned where he should be. this is where he needs to be.

Not jumping for hangers or out further on the 50. 

This.

Brown isn’t marking anything atm, yet we don’t have Kozz or spargo at his feet. We have fritsch and melks who yes do an okay job at it but leave it for them, keep them at browns feet

And that tap-type action only happens 1 in 4 or 1 in 5.  Often when there are multiple defenders in the same contest.  It's like he is treating the situation like a rucking contest

And one arm up only can get to a higher elevation much like how ruckmen go about it

So if he's summed up the situation and then chooses to use his right hand to bring the ball to the front & centre area, then that's smart play.  Especially if he is acting under coaching instructions

Worked to a treat in the last 30 seconds last night.  He made a movement to the side/front of the contested marking situation, got his right hand to the ball ... front & centre to Kossie who kicked the winning goal

It will be worth it when he inevitably takes mark of the century 😀

Watched the replay. Couldn’t watch it live. I thought it was a great game. Would have been very hard to watch live. High pressure contests all over the ground all night. The sloppy disposal comes with the style of game it was. Great to see Gawn and Jackson taking marks. I thought the reason Ben brown was going up one handed all night is because Carlton were very good at holding one arm all night. Not just with Ben brown but any chance they could all over the ground. Sneaky good tactic and hard to umpire cause you can barely see it. He took a few good marks when he got a bit of a run at it. We are trending well. They are a good side who gave absolutely everything, which we hopefully might be getting used to. I like that our prep for finals is as hard as it has been. We will be right where we want to be come finals. Geelongs soft run might be a problem for them. The win meant a great deal to them judging by their post game mood. I think we are right in it. I didn’t see the game some on here saw last night. Struggling to see the season being over as some are suggesting.  I saw a very tough game of football and as with last week we are doing a lot right. God it’s good to beat them. I actually like the team they have at the moment, but it’s always about the supporters with the big vic clubs.  Just insufferable.

I tip my hat to u Melk. 

I certainly didn’t want u in the side and haven’t been a fan for a couple of seasons due to ur poor form but u have reinvented urself, worked ur butt off and are reeking the rewards. 

So happy for you and listening to your interview after the game it’s clear your are very team focused and extremely motivated given you missed out last year. 

I really hope you can end the season on a high.

You seem a bit thin skinned. There is nothing wrong with banter or goading the opposition supporters, regardless of where they're sitting. As long as there wasn't incessant swearing, or aggressive behaviour directed at individuals, that sounds like a normal night at the football.

‘Aggressive, and foul mouthed, he was scaring a group of kids who kept looking around nervously at him”.  

The sentence after the one you bonded perhaps answered your question….

I’m gonna buck the trend and say that we won that match in the best possible way. 

Winning clutch-style like that is huge for the team’s confidence, and it’s massively important the boys know how to prevail in that kind of scenario. Finals will be full of tight games.

I need to say. Any poster who suggests we were not playing to our potential and thus playing poorly   Are entirely dismissive of the ability of Carlton and how hard they were trying to ensure their season. 
they were serious   And the blue baggers websites are quite possibly saying much the same.   They played well. Underestimate our opponents at our peril 

go Dees B2B

Egg on my face right now. Put my hand up and openly admit I got it wrong with the Melksham selection.

I've bashed him hard this year but the last few weeks he's completely changed his game to the point where he's important member.

Sorry Melky, you were [censored] unreal tonight.

Sane here but he hasn't played like that for eons.

I doubt this weekend can get any better. Dees win, Casey wins, Pies get done easily and I watch with 4 pies fans. 

Bombers losing by 100pts anyone?

Just wondering if anyone else noticed that Carlton players seemed very strong in our tackles? They were usually able to get a hand pass or kick away because our tackles didn’t shut them down. The umpires gave them plenty of time too.

That's our best win for the year easily, the Blues bought the heat and were dog hungry, make no mistake playing like that they beat most sides. 

It is incredibly impressive to bring consistently elite-level pressure against them and grind out a win. we could tidy up our attack, but contest, pressure, and defense were all pretty strong

Really? 

I'd have the Brisbane and Freo games as two that stand out for me personally..

I think so, just in terms of the opposition throwing everything at us, Freo and Brisbane weren't desperate or hungry like Carlton were last night.

    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.
