i think jeelong should rightly be the favourites

i think the swans can make a close game of it

i don't really much care who wins, but if pushed, i'd prefer a swans win 

i just hope it's a close game to watch

The music is gone. 

 

So much better to hear the crowd after goals. Having loud music then just ruins the atmosphere, blunts the emotional ebb and flow of the crowd sounds in the game.

Now that the AFL have seen the light will they also logically cut the music in the lead up to the first bounce? Music is also ruining that period of crowd cheers...

I don't believe Sydney can win if Sam Reid doesn't play, crucial to their structure.

Interesting if they go for Amarty or McLean as subs - that means they may play and underdone Reid and hope.

Sydney beat the filth by a point in the prelim so it would be fitting that they beat the moggies by a point as well. The 2 most hated teams done by a point in the finals. Nice.

I feel very conflicted towards this grand final

In the not too recent past I always watched the granny with mates or family, had the BBQ going, beers flowing. We were never too close to making it so didn't feel any sense of resentment towards the teams playing. I was able to watch neutrally 

Not the case this year. I know we were good enough to be there. I kinda begrudge both these teams. I don't think i can watch and enjoy as a neutral. Not this year

Pretty well sums up how most are feeling. The post Queens Birthday season has been abysmal from an MFC viewpoint.

With the Storm exiting from the NRL finals so early there's not even any interest there

Sounds like the river parade could have been better organised

"Thousands of footy fans have lined the Yarra River to watch the players pass on boats for this year’s grand final parade, but many have been left disappointed by a decision to turn the flotilla around before it reached a key vantage point.

Fans who gathered on the Princes Bridge on Friday for an up-close view of Geelong and Sydney players on the river have been left frustrated that the boats were turned around well before reaching the bridge.

Spectators had packed the bridge up to five people deep only to watch as the pontoons turned around earlier than they expected."

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    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
