And then I read she's a former all Australian who struggled with work commitments.

In a perfect world she’d have zero work commitments to worry about since she’d have zero work outside of footy.

I love Goldie but she needs to stop the play on every time thing. She is like a cocker spaniel! Being tackled by two girls and still does it. Ump let her off twice when she took advantage

Absolutely. Very few in the AFLW would have her hands.

I have a Jack Russell and you're correct. Needs very clear instruction. I'm pretty sure Goldie doesn't [censored] on the oval though.

Good coaching move putting, Goldy and Heath in the centre to stop Freo's clearances in the last quarter. 

Generally good players across the board, West, Hore and Purcell when it was needed, Gay down back, Hanks and Mithen all match, Taylor and Zanker swapping roles with each other makes for difficult match ups.

Some smart players on our team, a few that are developing, and some that are "nearly".

Keep building Dees.

She’d be absolutely formidable if she could be afforded the luxury of full time training/playing. And yeah, a focus on her fitness level would just add to her assets.

Great win by the girls they were challenged by a strong team and responded like a good team does and won comfortably in the end. Bowers was great for Freo while Harris, West, Purcell and Hanks were outstanding for the Dees.

Dees grind out win in the west (melbournefc.com.au)

Zanker was atrocious below her knees today

I think I'm officially becoming a harsh marker of this team! Last two weeks have been solid enough wins, but I always feel we can do so much more. Watching other top 4 contenders demolish expansion sides probably isn't helping.

I will give credit to Freo though for what they brought for three quarters of the game - easily the best they've put on the park this season in terms of pressure and two-way running. Then fourth quarter we simply put the foot down and got it done.

Seems Stinear is more willing to throw the magnets around this season. It's a good thing in the (slightly) longer season, giving us more options if we need a shake-up in later games. Defense-wise, I worry. Wish Colvin was out there for that extra grit.

I'd think that Goldie will re-calibrate just a tad this week and maybe rein that "go-go-go" in...about 5% 😂

Duffy has some of the best goal sense in the league (we've seen glimpses of it). Agree with WCW, she's never had that "typical" footballer physique and in her earlier time at Freo was probably way fitter than she actually looked. Obviously has some work to do there now, but she'll build that back, I just hope she's loving being a Demon and finding a good balance.

Bannan's having a super frustrating season and probably feeling it. Had some almost moments today. It will come!

Shout out to the fans over there and those that travelled for their great support, could hear you through the TV for sure.

The least said about the umpires the better.

I thought she played her role well. She also got a couple of goals and assisted with a few.

Marks in the 50 arc are important. 

She has not been great in games this season, I thought it was a better one for her and hoping she can build on it.

As for below her knees work, I thought even though fumbley,  she kept the ball infront and moving.

Love Goldie, just takes the game on...a little bit too much sometimes.

Just getting her game sense back.

Good move throwing her into the middle for a run.

I like Zanker, reckon she is a smart footballer...the goal assists are a good example of this.

Still young with plenty of upside.

Yep 17 frees to Freo to13 Dees when they were beaten by 5 goals was crazy.

Great to hear the Melbourne supporters on the TV.

Stinnear's changes are great to see and kept Freo on the back foot.

This team is just continuing to build and after watching them be so competitive since the start of the AFLW comp, they really deserve to win a flag.

Hopefully a nice clean run into the finals.

Go Dees

This gal (Freo cheer squad) didn’t let footiness get in the way of her fashion sense (those shoes, though 😬)

Her form is improving, she did take important marks, and she did well not to overrun the ball while she fumbled to pick it up. All true. But she looked like she was wearing ovenmits when it was at her feet. Also, I wish she would use her size to make room for teammates a bit more like Tom McDonald does. We're lucky to have her

I think she's still growing into her size if that makes sense.

Not yet a total wrecking ball like Tay but she has the capacity to do it with a bit more experience.

You still see her thinking through her moves a lot of the time.

I thought Zanker did a nice shepard in the last to make room for one of our players, perhaps Purcell,  to kick a goal.

I get what you mean though. If Taylor is her mentor, she might get there.

Our talls are good, though Gillard had a bad day and must give the opposition headaches.

    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
