Umpires in last quarter 

50 against Pickett up other end goal

soft holding to McStay - goal

Bailey pushed Hunt square in middle of back - goal

Andrews chops Brown arm 15 metres out - no free

just to close out game umpire free against Lever not being tackled and 5Om to gift it

Umpires pathetic influenced result

 

Gotta say, I really hate the umpire excuse. I hate it when all teams use it, but I especially hate it when we use it. Should have buried the game in the first quarter. Should have kicked another 5-6 goals easily throughout the game. 
 

We let them get easy goals at the ends of quarters. There’s the game right there. 
 

We absolutely choked and all ire should be directed at us for many reasons.

Lost it at selection

Yep. Full blame surely must rest with selection committee.

Going with the same team after being comprehensively bested the week before was flawed.

If I made the mistake /kryios tantrum like Lever (with the $$ he is on ) I would be sacked  from my job. Inexplicable.lack of discipline  by Kozzie, Lever and a couple of other incidents.

Keep May,Petty, Oliver, Viney,Brayshaw , Petracca ,Gawn & ANB (Effort plus) . Their efforts were fantastic but were let down  by brain fades. I hope some people recognise that they owe the MFC

We MUST have more variety in the Forward line !!!

If Jackson leaves we might be better off.  How can you be a third year AFL player who can’t take a one grab mark? He might as well take Rivers with him. Bowey is far better. 

Not if we waste a pick on Grundy.

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).

Absolutely this. Re kicking, there was a passage in the 3rd quarter where for 4 or 5 shots on goal we managed a couple of OOB on the full and a couple of points.

Means very little but my god that game had some of the worst non calls for HTB I think I’ve ever seen.

Cats would’ve belted us, and likely will do the same to the Lions, so that’s all I’m taking solace in.

Hopefully JVR plays Round 1 next year.

i’m sitting here at the G after that. 

 

apart from being pretty upset, I am furious that Goodein failed to do anything about the dysfunctional forward line. it’s been evident from the Queens birthday game. and it took until the game was lost for him to put someone (Petty - kicked one and gave away another) up there.

If Sparrow is in our side round 1 next year we're finishing 12th 

Shhh.. they'll bring back James Jordan, the world's slowest man over 10 metres.  

Amazing depth.

absolutely Out Coached in the second half,     too many times that it has happened this year,   Jackson is he going , is he staying  should have been decided    too much of a distraction,,    finally moved Petty forward,     just too late and Smith  still unused  that's plain BS    Win 10 straight,     then out of the finals in straight sets    something smells,   I need a break,   Am I disappointed    Yes .

 

BBB   is not the answer ,   not without help  when Petty went forward  it was different. And brain fades by May last week and Lever this week     .....FFS

The usual second-half fadeout. Outrun by fitter opponents.

Incredibly woeful  kicking at goal. How many actually finished out of bounds?

Same old bombing into forward packs with the customary result.

Salem a mere shadow of the player he once was.

Pickett -- couple of magic touches, utterly useless for the rest of the game.

Fumbles and  missed passes galore.

Goodwin, unable to think on his feet and change tactics, totally outsmarted by Fagan..

Please just let Jackson go and get the best deal we can.

Spargo, Melksham and Neal-Bullen a long way from premiership-winning material.

Sadly, our straight-sets exit was richly deserved.

I do not want to hear Goodwin or the club come out with the Geelong excuse from last year about injuries or illnesses.

They are reasons but not excuses. For 2 weeks we have given up a lead

2 weeks?

Try about 7 over the course of the year.

Good bounce back game from ANB, didn't see it coming

Petty just huge

Again it's evident we need more runners & classy ball users as much as another key forward option. Two of the worst games you'll ever see from Sparrow & Rivers tonight

This season has been just freaking foul. Truly like watching a car crash in slow motion. We are seriously the most boring team to watch in the comp. Brisbane are probably the worst tram to ever make a prelim and we let them do it. How embarrassing.

Who's your answer then? An untried kid who's been inconsistent even at Casey (but hopefully will be great in the longer term) or Mitch Brown? 

We had 22 shots on goal (more than them), not counting a few OOB on the full which were aimed in the general direction of the goals -  that should be enough to win a game of footy.

Not saying we don't need to look at what's going on with the forward line, but you can't lose your main tall forward/CHF and that not have consequences.

All of our losses have come through choking leads this year.

Even in games we won we rarely put the foot down and actually went on with it, we always left the door ajar for opposition teams.

    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.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
