GAMEDAY: SF vs Brisbane



Recommended Posts

This morning’s news makes me flat and (almost) disinterested.  It just doesn’t feel like Gameday.  
I need a spark.  I hope the Dees can ignite it with a thumping win!

This is where dynasties start. It is bloody hard to go back to back that's why even the Cats have never done it. Remember the hawks when they lost and had to go to Perth and beat WC? Sometimes you have to do it the hard way. We are carrying injuries but we can do it.  Win 3 games. we have the stars that can stand up and make it happen

Cmon you DEMONS!

Hoping the battle hardened way will prevail over the easy way. I know we’re carrying injuries but I live in hope.

Not thinking ahead too much but by the time prelim day hits Geelong will have played 1 game in a month and 1 competitive game in 6 weeks.

The Lions will be fired up for this one, after the embarrassment of the past few years. And they will come out hard but I expect them to play the ball more than the man this time 

Demons by 9 points in a cracker

Gawn BOG

They have dropped two snipers.

Yeah I've heard people swear by it. With anything you probably get a few extra emails from numpties but that's no biggie. I used to sell a bit on Ebay but find it a lot harder now, seems like more of an Amazon/Kogan/Catch business these days. 

Right, getting on board by emptying out the cupboards!

A doctor did tell me I have two healthy kidneys at the end of last year too... 🤑

I can almost hear the sweet sound of old man hamstrings popping in the first quarter of the prelim

We'll win. The Lions are total bottle jobs and will fold again tonight

Performance wise we need to lift. Get some sharpness and rhythm back into our game. No more fumbling

Forward pressure please. If i see the ball rebounding out of our forward 50 i'll lose my [censored]

ANB to find some kind of form. HE has not been good recently. Salem likewise. We need his accurate disposal off half back if we're to win a prelim or granny

I hope Trac's guardian angel let's nothing further happen to his injured leg

Need some real momentum before we take on the cats. That'll be a tough ask playing as we are 

Come on Dees. Produce your best in a final before the faithful. Remind the Cats and Swans what we're capable of

See you all at the G later

I've not heard the expression "total bottle jobs" before. I realise it's not intended to be complimentary, but what, exactly, does it mean? Is it a reference to being fakes (as in "bottle blonde") or something to do with having the qualities of a drunk person? Or something else?

Play like we did up here at the Gabba it will be a comfortable win and may give the coaches a chance to rest a couple in last quarter. Anything less it will be tight but we still win.

Tonight’s banner has a stunning pic of Lever, Maxy, Dogga and Tracc. It will look spectacular when raised. (I’m sure other teams’ cheer squads must be envious of our banners. We’re blessed to have in the DA a rusted-on Dees diehard who runs a printing company, and the quality of his work is next level.)

And to the left of the pic there’s written in huge letters: 

WE’RE NOT DONE YET!

I can’t remember exactly the wording on the flip side (even though I cut the letters out 🤭) but I do know it includes the words ‘unbeatable’ and ‘repeatable’ so one gets the gist of it. ❤️💙

If weather permits it'll be shown to the Shane Warne wing right? Looks stunning!

Pretty sure it comes from english slang.  to 'bottle it', is to choke or lose your nerve. not only in sporting terms. ie. didn't have the nerve to ask a girl out

Not as confident as many, our recent form on the MCG is mediocre at best…hope we win but it will be close 

If you look at our mediocre MCG record since round 11, we've lost to Freo once, Sydney twice and Collingwood twice while beating Brisbane and Carlton once.

Meanwhile with regards to our interstate record of 7-0, 5 of those wins came against non finalists.

I think our average MCG record can be attributed to losing to high quality sides more so than the venue not suiting us as much. We had no issues winning our first 6 MCG against mostly mediocre clubs.

Why? The Queen lived a magnificent life. She achieved so much and died peacefully surrounded by family at age 96 in her favourite castle.

I can't think of a single one of us who wouldn't be happy with that ending. 

Death is an inevitable part of life, just like losing is in football. If you have a really successful period in football and it comes to an end, you make peace with it. The Queen's life and death is no different.

David King has said on SEN this morning that our strategy of kicking to the pocket inside 50 has destroyed our campaign. Said we have got caught up with “the percentage play” and he hates it. 

Partly defended Spargo, ANB, & Melksham in saying that if we had a better method, they would be able to get more involved. 
 

 

Hard to argue with that. I agree. Against Sydney we played boring, predictable football. Against Brisbane the game before we were more daring, moved the ball quicker, which leaves space for our smalls to get to ground balls and apply the pressure that won us a premiership.

Definitely. We would always do a show to both sides if we could. But even if it’s not raining or not too windy, if the grass is wet a show is not likely, which sucks because the pic side of it and/or the non-advertisement side is always facing the race. Therefore not everyone gets to appreciate how amazing it is.

Kozzie to go to ballistic

Hopefully, Kozzie will be able to stay goalside instead of being (almost) the sole forward running here, there and everywhere (out of range of his excellent kicking) playing the whole defensive pressure contributor across the forward line.

    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.
