Well it gives us more time to get ready for next year.   

The fwd line needs a major shakeup up.  Poor selection this week after last week.  Except for a few, there wasn't the desparation needed to win a final.   Hopefully trac didn't do any more damage.

Selwyn Griffith should probably start looking for a new job.

Our last quarters this year have been absolutely deplorable.

Teams have known they can run over us, and have done so.

 

Also, why bother switching up positions with 5 minutes to go if you've been stubborn up to that point, even at selection?

The worse part of this whole business was we ABSOLUTELY SH*T OURSELVES under pressure tonight.

Was going to start naming names of those who had severely embarassing moments - but it was almost the entire team.

That was a disgusting, limp wristed way to exit the year. 

Some seriously hard decisions need to be made about the makeup of this team.  

Good riddance to 2022.

Failure of a season.

Every single loss was the same where we get out to a lead of around 20 to 30 points and then get complacent and stop trying to win.

No imagination with team selection or style.

Half the team in on reputation while Casey had an all-time great saeason.

Yep story of our season 4-5 goal leads evaporate in a blink of an eye and we can't run out the last qtr our make dumb errors when it matters

I’ve not seen us looked that gassed before. We had nothing left to give.

You clearly haven't been watching the last 14 games because we've been overrun in most of them. Your BS loading theory is thankfully dead.

That was not lost by game plan or selection or coaching. That was lost through atrocious kicking (again), poor decision making in close (again), and 2 x 50m penalties (again).

What a wasted season.

What a waste of a year.

We have the talent but I fear we came into the year with some complacency, and refused to learn anything from our losses.

We lost pretty much every single game the same way, and nobody did anything about it. Same kicks to the pocket, long bombs etc. Predictable and boring.

No dynasty for this team, that's just talk Maxy. You have got to earn that with grit, every single game.

We need some forwards, hunger and try to catch up other teams who will also want to be dynasties.

Ugh. Lame way to end the year.

Last year was our only flag with this group if Goodwin stays as coach. He just isn't up to it. The only way we contend next year is to significantly change our gameplan.

We always needed two tall key defenders. Without the likes of Joel Smith or even Turner, Petty always had to fill that role.

Also, I bet that if it had been Petty instead of Lever in that last bizarre play it wouldn't have cost us a goal. Swings and roundabouts. But can see Ben Brown playing out his contract at Casey.

Sadly, our second half of the year has to be seen as a massive capitulation, and that game was the perfect capper. A team we smacked twice this year, badly undermanned, and they made us look like utter amateurs in that second half. Can’t win at our home ground, get easily rolled in our second halves, and when oppositions come hard with the pressure, we go belly up, retreating into our slow methodical attacking strategy with a massive attack of the panics down back. None of the fast, rolling waves of possession, just fumbly, horrible rubbish that gets easily turned over. Dunno how it happened, but it’s absolutely there for all to see. Shattered for the boys, cos I reckon they’ve got no idea how it happened either. Here’s the other thing, and I’ll definitely sound like a smartarse saying it, but HARRY PETTY IS A FORWARD. I’ve been saying it for 4 years. You don’t waste great marking competitive beasts like him down back. Next year, peeps!

Well river water it is. Why the hell were we  playing an obviously injured Petracca  and what were we saving Tmac for probably can't even play for Casey now. This is a return to the bad old days God delivers us. I am fairly certain that is my last night game. Too old, it is too cold and can hardly walk back to the station.

    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.
