The game was well umpired last night (all things considered)

Remembering that the sport itself is impossible to umpire correctly anyway so an error rate has to be factored in

A Demon mate of mine was with a group of Pie supporters (watching in a pub) and he was saying that the Pie fans were screaming that they were being crucified by the umpires.  All game

Yet many here and elsewhere tthought that the Swans were crucified by the umpires

So which opinion is right?  In my view, neither

The answer is somewhere in the middle so we could come to the conclusion that neither team was hard done by

Thought the umpiring was excellent last night. 1 or two decisions doesn't make a game, no matter how much people want it to.

Gee we must’ve been banged up or unfit ,mentally weak ,or something amiss to lose to that bog ordinary side in Brisbane 

I hope we get that mongrel back for 4 quarters next year.

Lucky we did because no one will remember how much  better than the Dees other 3 were.

So why is the best" repeat effort " on here so called fans saying the Dee's lose because of umpiring favouritism.

Ps It clearly was "IN THE BACK "  (can't overlook a nudge then leaning across space to push) but you might argue the mark could have been paid

It was definitely contentious, as was the Ginnivan 50 that I haven't seen paid once this year. Not great and you'd expect them to look at this but overall thought it was pretty good.

The filth supporters are diabolical. They boo and call "ball" from the opening bounce and never let up. Thankfully they seem to have stopped doing the ridiculous "USA/USA" chant.

So glad they didn't make the GF. 

So annoying that they lucked in with 2 excellent father/son picks.

I listened to razor ray this morning and his discussion with Whately on all the contentious decisions. I have to admit I wasn't aware of some rule changes and clearly neither are the players.

The Ginnivan 50 metre is relevant because cast your mind back to the previous week when Kossie gave away a 50-metre penalty close to the goal. The rule was changed and if you aren't in the marking contest you must stand 9 metres away from where the mark was taken. You don't stand the mark and get called back anymore if the contest is less than 9 metres out from the goals. Leon Cameron commenting on the radio knew the rule and when it was paid against Ginnivan he immediately stated that the player clearly didn't know the rule. I suspect the same holds for Kossie. For those critical of Kossie, we owe him an apology and the interpretation was correct.

The next question was about a free to Stengel against Starsevitch, which seemed unreasonable as he had no time to dispose of the ball, had his arm pinged and went to the ground. Unfortunately with his free arm, he had the ball and once the ball hit the ground the new rule states he must dispose of it. God knows who thought that rule up or how one is supposed to dispose of it while pinned to the ground. The relevance relates to lever the week before where the late free was awarded because when McStay tackled him, Lever put the ball to the ground and was trying to paddle it to safety. We all thought it was paid for deliberate out-of-bounds which of course it wasn't. Like Lever, I was unaware of this ruling and the interpretation was sadly correct.

Who would be an umpire? The rules aren't simple and so many nuances and clearly, the players as well as the public have no idea of some recent rule changes.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
