Beaten by a better team, no need to panic 

We were a little bit off outside of a couple of patches, very confident we will bounce back against the Lions next week

lots of teams who win multiple flags have lost qualifying finals 

 

I agree but we look quite banged up.  The group next us spotted Trac struggling very early and mentioned it a lot.  That got me looking and when you start to notice the limping and strapping where you haven’t seen it before, you can’t stop seeing it.  On top of a Trac, Kozzy looks very sore with heavy knee strapping, BBB too.  Dogga’s knee also strapped.  Salem looked off.  
 

We live to fight another day.

Well, not alot went right that game.
Sydney took their chances.
We squandered ours.
Petracca banged up.
3 goals from 50's.
Harmes in trouble.

That result may be a blessing in disguise.

Win tonight and no changes and same midset and we could easily lose a PF.

I think if we regroup and make a few changes, we beat the Lions and take a different side and mentality into a PF which might get us another GF.

All is not lost, YET.

Now stop talking about winning it in front of family and friends. Ban interviews this week. Rejig the forward line, by bringing in another key forward Weid/Tom/JVR, get Bowey in and drop Melk and ANB.

When you apply supreme pressure to a side, the poorly skilled ones fall apart, as we saw tonight.

6 OOB on the full and countless disposal errors which cost clearances, turnovers and ultimately goals.

Yes we can make a PF, but without changes we could stop there.

Ok so if may and harmes didn't give away those goals from brain fades Melksham kicks the 2 he missed and we kick that goal that we absolutely butchered we win. But hindsights a wonderful thing.

And if Heeney and Reid kick goals instead of posters …….you get the idea.

The momentum turned massively when Buddy flopped like he’d been shot. 
 

He got into May because he hadn’t had a touch and May fell for it. Because he’s May

Yes May shouldn't have gotten sucked in but neither should have the umpire. Thought umpiring was a bit on the ordinary side tonight.

Anyone know what the crowd size was tonight. Sounded like there were more Sydney fans there as will.

78k.

We outnumbered them 10:1. They just had more to yell about.

Tonight we were horribly schooled by our betters. The Swans own us, as do Collingwood, and in fact Geelong. They are the 3 best teams in the 4. This idea that our ‘best’ is the best in the AFL is errant nonsense when it can’t be sustained to win games over 4 quarters. To their credit, the Swans exposed that brutally tonight.

It was a very Melbourne heavy crowd, but the crowd goes quiet when the team is playing badly and not kicking goals. 
 

Thought the crowd was good tbh.

This. 

The noise after the Sparrow goal was insane. 

But the Melbourne crowd went silent in the fourth because the game was gone.

A shameful performance. So many moments that bordered on embarrassing. Couldn't be more disappointed with the effort, coaching and execution for a qualifying final.

Very hard to see how this team beats 3 more finalists.

Huh? Sydney are a better team. Might want to reread it, champ. And maybe calm down. Your stream of consciousness is weighing down the servers.

Haha face palm away pal…..read your last 10 posts. Not accepting reality clearly!!!

we had a final won, and buddy faking a 50 actually turned the game. Nothing more, nothing less. Accept reality. Not a dynasty team. Just a team that won 1 flag, and didn’t have what it takes to accept a tiny bit of adversity and back in a plan to get things back on track.

Truth hurts peeps!

100%. I can’t handle people who don’t go to the ground say how quite it is. If you want to make a difference. Show up.

It was a shocker. But May could have said hey Buddy, I’ve had about 16 intercept marks on you, get a kick

Players played like rubbish.

Supporters supported like rubbish. Felt like I was at a funeral it was that quiet.

Yep, spot on. Has hurt us all year, that the “premiership” team couldn’t create an environment that helps us win games. Just a run of the mill club rather than a Ess, Coll, Carl etc

100%. If we do anything this pre season. It’s ball movement drills . Repeat, repeat and repeat. Off HB and then into F50. Repeat. 

We fall apart when pressure applied. 
 

 

That's exactly it. Poor skill is exposed under pressure.

I was screaming my head off. Felt like a real feral and probably upset the children in the general area. No one around me had much to say. Felt very lonely.

I don’t think it’s fair to say Geelong own us given that two of the last three times we’ve beaten them, once by 80 odd in a prelim

We will likely face Geelong in the prelim, I think we will beat Brisbane, their defence just isn’t good enough and can’t be compared to Sydney.

Geelong is the one team I’d most want to face in the prelim out of Coll and Sydney. Their pressure game just overwhelms us and we lose all composure. That’s not to say we will beat Geelong but I think it will be the best matchup we could ask for.

- Max is ruckman not a forward! We were smashed in clearance use our best ruck in the middle for 80% game time. [censored]

- Salem is not the same player. He had groin soreness for 2-3 weeks, he is not fit just play Bowey.

- Brayshaw’s kicking is horrendous at times, 11 turnovers! Back to halfback.

- Get Brown out and put Mcdonald in. He is a liability in anything but a mark on lead. Mcdonald can crash a pack, Brown is as weak as a baby giraffe. Melk Tmac are better together up forward.

    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.
