Gold Coast because they've never played finals and nobody else will tip them and I don't want them to feel left out.

Everybody else is going to vote for Melbourne, aren't they?

No apparently some poor souls want a repeat of yesterday.

at this time of the year, hope springs eternal!

the mfcss will kick in with the first report of 'player x is on restricted duties as the dees return to the track'

Remember when we were at or near the bottom of the ladder. Start of pre-season there would be a report of some player training the house down, and we somehow thought this would turn us into a contender the following year.

Assuming we are lucky with injuries and can tweak the game plan then we're as good a chance as any

Swans will be traumatised, Pies approach will be countered, I can't where the Lions improvement will come from (although they do get the best player in the draft) and I have doubts about Freo. The doggies have defensive frailties, Richmond might surprise given the players they are trading in so they could improve

I reckon it'll either be us or Geelong.

Lol at the bias 😂

I love it. Right now at the very least, we are contenders. For the best part of the past 6 decades I could not put my hand on my heart and say that we were a realistic chance. Right now I can!

As the season progresses I hope I can up the ante (like in 2021) and with hand on heart say that we are ‘serious contenders’. 🤞

Thinking it will happen and wanting it to happen are very different things.

Yes, and a dream is a wish your heart makes.

Yesterday was a nightmare. Don’t even think it people - you will manifest it…

It is going to come down to fitness, injuries to key personnel, the draw and a little bit of luck. Coupled to a tweaking of the game plan, bringing in a couple of new recruits and courage to reward our kids with games when they deserve them. Let’s face it we should always be willing to change up our bottom 6-8 players. We have the talent and should get enough from LJ, etc to cover our weaknesses, no more games based on past actions.

Less talk, more action.

Maybe the question should’ve been “IF NOT MELBOURNE, who will be Premiers in 2023?” We would’ve had more variety in our results. 😂

Should have said "After Melbourne, who is the next most likely to win the GF". 

Great minds etc!

Reddit AFL forum held this poll and there was an overwhelming amount of neutral supporters saying that Melbourne will come back strong in ‘23. Many also, tipping us for the flag. 
 

This is what life looks like without MFCSS

    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
