Enjoy the win of course, but it's important to be realistic and the reality is we're not wining it this year.  

Says who? That's just garbage. We may not win it, but if we play to our best, there's every chance.

Reckon Jayden Hunt is the only reason we won that game and it was due to a bit of dare - be nice if collectively we could employ that mindset across more than the last quarter 

I’d like to see Hunt played off the wing, replacing Jordon who can fold into the midfield rotations.

Sorry but we're not winning it with a dysfunctional forward line

I terms of total scores kicked for the season so far we’re 6th out of the 18 teams. Points conceded? 1st.

I would say we’re in with a shot, but I’m glass half full.

That is hopefully the game that will flick the switch for a Successful September. 
Carlscum were playing for their lives tonight. That was their most important game for 10 years, and we broke them. 
 

Attack each contest Demons 

Help your mates…

Fear nothing.

A shame we couldn't do that last week but I like to think this will give us a lot of confidence.

I'm sorry but I'm more happier when max is in the ruck. 

Wow kozzie you were right where I've always wanted you to stand and look what happened. 

It was just a crazy final 2 minutes. But I must admit when kozzie scored I jumped out of my seat & did a first pump. That was gold

I’ll happily take the 4 points, although it feels like we stole it.

we’re just so predictable over the past 10-12 rounds, we have lost all our offensive dare, Second to the ball, hate to say it but soft at the contest at times tonight.

unless we’re about to hit a switch but we’re struggling under the pressure of being reigning premiers it feels.

I’ll be cheering on at the Gabba, let’s hope some offensive is found during the week.

it would be nice to kick it to BBB on the lead just once and not to him with 3 defenders.

🔵🔴🔴🔴🔵

Well how do you do that when they're stuck to him

You write in absolutes. I'll say this; an average forward line (and yes it is right now) can look a helluva lot better when we take the game on up field.

If you would have told me melky would have been our best forward in rd 22 at the start of the year, I would not have believed you.

Don’t expect a response any time soon Nashy. 
Called @dazzledavey36 out last week and have been ear-bashed by crickets since. 🤣

c’mon Dazz…. You know I’m not having a crack but rather curiosity about how you answer this. 
Viney should’ve been traded a few years ago though hey?

I legitimately have no idea what you're on about. 

This is the first time I've seen anything from you. What's the Viney comment?

Just so proud of the boys. The Carlton fans dominated in M2 adjacent to our Demon Army and to silence them was so sweet.

We won scrappy and ugly. Great that we can win a game like this. It doesn’t have to be a defensive masterpiece game of chess. We can hang in the contest and get over the top of a team desperate to cement a finals appearance.

Carn the Dees!

Jayden Hunt and Michael Hibberd were absolutely superb as well, great dash off half back and very strong defensively tonight.

Character building stuff. We can whinge about not winning by enough or not playing as fluid a football as we can. The bottom line is that we showed a will to win tonight that premiership teams need. 

Those last two entries resulting in goals need to be our template from this point onward.

We don’t need to hit a forward lace out directly in front, 30 from goal every time. Collingwood understood that brilliantly last week. It’s a matter of fast, penetrating kicks to the teeth of goal that are too red hot to float in to intercept mark and can fashion either a chest mark or spillage. To be fair, Melky was just lucky. But we set Kozzie up wonderfully for that last goal.

Call it blasphemy (I’m bracing for a ban as we speak 😄), but I felt a bit for Carlton’s supporters. On personnel alone, they are a finals team. They have a more than competent coach. Yet injuries and sliding doors moments might cost them like us in 2017. That game when the Eagles beat the Crows by 22 had me feeling pretty low. I’d say their mob would feel the same.

Let’s think positive. We roll Brissy next week and we’ve won 16. That’s one less than last year. It’s always going to be tough in this competition to have the type of season we had in 2021. Yet, we get the win and we find ourselves in as good a position as any to win the flag.

Get on board! All tickets for the D-Train. Final stop: September! 😎

That's not good enough because we'll be playing higher quality teams in the finals

Oh? Where do they come from? We just played a team that was playing a game as if their lives depended on it and scraped out a win. Almost did the same last week. We smashed Freo over in WA.

Is our forward line the best? No. Is it enough with the rest of the team to give us a chance in September? You bet.

Yawn. You do this all the time. How about you just stop bagging Melbourne players all the time?

Come off it Nash.

Half this site was smashing Melksham few weeks ago.

You going to call them as well or just lay under the doona's as usual.

    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.
