POSTGAME: SF vs Brisbane

Recommended Posts

After disappointing losses, most of my friends say they don't watch the replay.

I think that must be true of most Demonlanders, or there'd be more comments on the rotten treatment we got from the maggots in Q4.

The McStay free against Petty that put them in front for the first time at the 90 min mark.....yes, he grabbed the jumper momentarily, but it was nothing compared to the treatment Brown suffers every forward entry.

The Bailey mark for the goal to put them 14 up. A definite push in the back to Hunt.

The Bailey goal which may have hit the post. The goal umpire was looking at the line to see if the ball had crossed it before it was kicked. He didn't look up at all.  How could it be "umpire's call" when he wasn't even looking at it???  ok, ARC didn't reveal a post touch, but it was given a goal for incorrect reason.

The non-free for HTB against Berry at our 45m mark when we 7 points down with 2 min to go.

The 50m against Kozzie in the forward pocket, when the ump said he had to give him 9metres. He should have told him exactly where the mark was, and said "stand" then.  That didn't directly result in a goal, but it got Bris. out of trouble when it was desperately close to our goal.

Overall in the match, 6 frees inside 50 to them, and 1 to us.

Have I missed other posters' comments on this, or has everyone just forgotten and not watched the replay.?

It's frustrating to watch, but should give us hope for 2023 , since we could easily have won, despite how brilliant the media say the Lions were, and how "banged up" we're alleged to be.

Also, Kozzie missed 2 sitters by trying 2 check-side kicks to an open goal in Q4, when a normal kick would have been a routine goal.

Pleading ignorance on this Jack, I didn't watch it. 

And I usually don't unless I really want to do an autopsy of what went wrong which is rare, it was just too much this time round. Still raw and won't change anything so I took the tape and threw it in the trash.

Once was enough.

I am not going to delude myself into thinking umpiring was the difference. We need to make changes, my eyes have seen it all season long.

Much has been made of our lack of pressure.  This paints a different picture.

image.png.6b1426c35596626107342c1dff730475.png

We ran into a red hot Sydney and then a red hot Brisbane. 

For some reason we eased up in the second quarter vs Brsibane, gave them some momentum and that last 10 seconds goal, thanks to a Viney lapse, gave them a look in and kept them in touch on the scoreboard.

Collingwood and Freo would have wilted in comparison.

So we aren't doing as badly on the pressure stakes as the media makes out.

That makes sense, I think our pressure was ok in these games but just not consistent enough when it counted. That and the fact we were really out pressured by the opposition.

Collingwood would have wilted?

Too many David King numbers and not enough watching from the stands in that theory.

The Pies were gone by several goals against Sydney in the home and away..watching them one would be excused for thinking it was nail bitingly close.

Not a side for wilting..this year at least.

You'd have to absolutely smash then and cut Pendlebury's head off,smash the Yanks glasses and nobble DeGoey to be sure,no matter what the numbers suggest

Thought I'd share something I heard today as this is a Melbourne supporter fan forum after all. Hopefully saty has me on ignore cause this will ruin his week. 

My old man is mates with a bloke who catches up with May regularly, (won't say why because we all want to remain anonymous here). 

They caught up after the Semi and May mentioned that he'd had a stern talking to from Goody due to going against team rules for two reasons. One was with kick-outs when he stopped kicking long to Gawn due to trying to win the game late. And second, when he sent Petty forward. Yes, Petty went forward under May's instruction. 

Was in trouble for both. 

Take it with a you know what, thought I'd share.

So May told Petty to go forward and Petty was like “yep sure dude I’m off”? And Goody knew nothing about it? In an elimination final? 
I call BS.

Glad you were right dazz. You must be stoked, congratulations!

Lol but I wasn't right.. I tipped us to comfortably beat Brisbane.

But I was right about team selection being a shamozzle huh? Funny that..

Oh Jaded. 

Is it that unbelievable that when you're down and out in a semi final with five minutes to go, one of your leaders would send a key position player forward to try and win the game? 

I don't think it is.

I don't think it is. 

I had a mate who was at ground level who also said that May sent Petty forward.  An executive decision is sometimes needed in crisis time

Seen it happen at local level hundreds of times. Often blokes just moving themselves forward or back (usually back) I did it myself once or twice

We are 2 or 3 scores down with a few minutes to go.  It wouldn't have surprised me to see May move himself forward however, the words to Petty included 'I've got them covered' (as in, I'll cover for you) Or words to that effect

Two things:

 

The May discussion - sounds like BS to me. Even if Steven May did that off his own bat, there is no way he would have been given a stern talking to about it since it was such a successful move. So somewhere the reportage must be wrong.

 

The JJC comments about the last quarter – I have watched the replay too, and I agree with him. We were crucified by the umpires, but I accept that that is part of the game. What I also see is that despite everyone saying how fatigued we were, in fact, once we got close, we were running all over them. Which tells me that it is mental fatigue, not physical fatigue.

Why would the feedback be [censored]? 

Goody wasn't happy that May went against the coaches moves. That better?

Making the coach look bad would make Simon happy?...i would not be so sure with Goodwin.

i got the feeling in 2021 he was on best behaviour and basically told to listen to his assistant coaches.

2022 so many facets of our game went slightly backwards i would not be at all surprised if we relaxed on him and he went back into normal Goodwin, i got this mode.  Could list about 20 areas i believe we regressed.    

We got a great list, i don't think we got a great coach though honestly.    Most coaches would do very well with our current list fwiw.

If what is true what May did with Petty then brilliant I say!

Coaches were incredibly slow to react this year when teams got on a roll on.

So a senior players takes matters in his own hands and decided to try and bite the bullet while our coaches sit on their hands all game.

All I see here is a senior player had s gutful that our coaches didn't have a plan B so he did what he thought would benefit the team. Funny enough it nearly won us the game.

I don't quite see it the same way, dazzle

So not so much going against the coach more so just trying to win a game with an executive decision

It doesn't mean that May is even disrespecting Goodwin either.  He just made a decision and Petty could have said no (as well)

I've spoken to about a dozen people about the May move ... those who were shocked didn't play much footy but those who played a bit weren't shocked at all

I'm glad JG put it out there first though. I wasn't going solo on this one haha

As someone who is still actively playing footy I'm certainly not surprised one bit that this is player driven.

Think people will be surprised how often this happens.

Got a Pie mate who reckons that Darcy Moore moved himself forward in the last 90 seconds of the game against the Swans

And left Franklin all on his own

Game on the line and if you lose, there's no tomorrow

    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.
