I love hunty, has steadily brought back his trade mark dash while adding some really neat aggressive kicking to the team

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 either too red hot to float in and intercept mark and create 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! 😎

 

Not trying to be a smart [censored] but I don’t think we are ever trying to do that or have a game plan that aims to do this.

That game was all but manufactured for that mob to win.Crucial frees and fifty not paid.Oliver held continuously, out of bounce while a clear mark.

All the while Melksham was cementing himself into the team and Club that is about to repay him with Finals that culminate in him achieving a dream that I would say has been on his mind for years. I wish him the best in the best Team he has chosen.

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.

I thought we did. 
 

I can’t even have enough LSD to create a picture of how the game plan would in any way benefit the skills our forwards have - it’s being wasted. 
I cringe when we go inside 50, 40 or even 30. 
It’s just plain dysfunctional and very fugly. 
Got some work in front of ourselves.

Carlton supporters on train home whinging out loud about umpires, score reviews, players injured.... even bagging Saad as being a terrible kick

Amazing!

We did get 23-13 frees, but what it doesn’t tell you is goals from frees. I think they won that 4-1. It should be a third scoring based stat: goals from turnover, goals from stoppage,l and goals from frees. I think that stat would tell a massive story about umpire influence. Probably why we don’t hear much about it.

They were rabid tonight.

2 fights around us after the siren. One I am 90% was between 2 Carlton supporters. Why do security go home half way through the last? I had to pull 2 guys apart and no cops or security anywhere.

Oh, and the Blues supporter behind me yelled at me and my nephew hugging when Koz kicked his goal because she ‘couldn’t see the ground’. 

I also got yelled at for sitting in a ‘Carlton members area’ when I brought my reserve seat from the Demons, and had to show my Membership app to prove it. Other Melbourne members copped the same thing.

These people are so entitled. I hope they all cry themselves to sleep.

Happy.

Wont win the flag unless we find a way to convert our inside 50 dominance, but wow that last 2 minutes was fun.

We've been on the wrong side of a few close ones recently so it's nice to send oppo fans home shattered for a change.

Yeah I think we have focussed heavily on defence to the point where we don’t take the game on. It’s a safety mindset that has crept into our execution. I hope the coaches try to adjust in preseason and give us a plan to use the corridor more. 

The Langdon wing was our most utilised route to goal and teams have worked that out  too. That is why he hardly has an impact anymore and we see JJ being used more, which brings undue attention to his skills, execution and decision making.

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?

It was only a couple of years ago that you thought Viney was an absolute crab and shouldn’t play. 
it’s okay to rip into players when they’re playing like 💩 but fail to acknowledge that you’re wrong when they become a serious player.

Hunt was brilliant.  Feels like we stole that.

Weird game, I didn't feel like we were awful, Blues were fired up, kicked decently to their forwards and they got a few ricochets their way too.

Our forward line looked a bit more sticky, the tackling was better. 

Ben Brown though... looks like his only option now is repeatedly run vaguely to the drop of the ball with one arm and pimp slap it?  What is he doing?

We robbed them.

Great time to win a close one.

The Melbourne players never gave in, well done.

I keep expecting to hear that their Queen Councils are going to the appeal tribunal to claim the timers got it wrong!

36 minutes, is that normal?

Those kicks down the line to a contest! We need more dynamics in our forward craft.

Hard footy, well done Dees.

    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
