Recommended Posts

Daisy just needed to kick the point

Anyways a great effort to get that close but unfortunately poor goal kicking cost us. should have won by 100 points

No injuries thankfully and in great shape heading into finals

4.1 in the last the girls really bought it home, very strong effort and to get within .3% of Brissie is huge given the massive lead they accrued early in the season.!!

Gee, windy day with some slippery conditions and people are blaming Daisy for her last-minute choice and missing a pin-point pass. 

Winning by 80 or so was always a huge task and they only just missed it. C'est la vie.

Yep thought when she had the ball on the boundary she could have just swung around and kicked it & even if she didn't get the distance it could have been marked or punched through.

They seemed satisfied with 2nd spot but I just feel towards the end they should have been gunning for top spot.

Four goals in the last quarter, I thought they were! The weakest quarter was the 2nd.

Meanwhile, their possible opponent next week, in somewhat better conditions, has kicked 0.2.2 to half time against St Kilda.

she didn't realise she needed the point. tried to square it to improve the angle. understandable

they were going for it the whole game. They were taking on 50/50 kicks into the corridor right from the get-go

Our goal kicking cost us ultimately.

Really proud of the girls...what a great season they've had.

Well coached and well led on field.

Some real pluses are Goldy running into some form, Zanker starting to realise her ability and Heath on ball and as a tagger. Special mention to Makin who is getting better by the game, really works hard back and forward from her wing.

We're set up for a good finals campaign, let's hope we can go all the way this time.

Of course she didn't. Even the commentators didn't know until after the game so there was no way known Daisy would have.

As you say, she played is the way they played the game and it was the right call.

One has to question why one feels so flat after a 78 point win. I hope we play Adelaide at Casey next week.

no more games at casey this season, due to renovations the change rooms are about to be torn out, it'll be an ikon park job i believe, the home of footy (W) and a more enclosed arena could only improve our performances one might think

36 minutes ago, whatwhat say what said:

commentators said we needed 4.3 to 0 in the last to claim top spot - if daisy had gone for the goal and missed it still wouldn't have been enough; she absolutely did the team thing squaring it up, she just didn't hit the target

We actually needed 4.2 to 0 in the last so a behind would’ve sufficed.

In the last quarter a few of our members were at the fence yelling out to our forwards what was needed: three more goals, two more goals etc. In the last minute or so the increased noise level meant they weren’t being heard so instead we were chanting “any score” in unison and as loud as possible. Katie Hore heard us as did a couple of others but unfortunately Daisy mustn’t have. ☹️

With 34secs to go and her distance from goal in the wind, it was the right decision but from what I saw on tv the leading player misjudged and ran under it or Daisy kicked it too far.   Over the course of the game we has ample opportunity .

They said before the game, the team focus was defence (getting ready for finals), I think they achieved their goal.

I kind of wish this had been our first game of the season just so we could have had a four-digit percentage.

Tell you what, if this is the way things go when we really put everything into attacking, sign me up for more.

Great home and away series by the MFC AFLW team. Even a blow out game like today had plenty of drama and entertainment value. One point, loved that they got themselves into a place where they nearly did it. How was Taylor?  Nearly made it happen, Lauren with her snap out of the ruck, the same, and Daisy going for the percentage play instead of aiming to bring home the chocky's.

We have so much to like about our team. Our ball movement is aggressive, and must worry the other teams. Skills by foot and hands, our attacking back-line who intercept and trust each other. If not Birch, then it's Gillard, with support from Lampard and Gay. The engine room with Purcell, Hanks and West. Our talls doing lots of ground play and the one percenters. We take marks all over the ground (Birch, Taylor, Zanker, Hore) and we have a few who take it on with run and pace (Bannan, Goldy, Zanker, Lampard, Heath). Then there's Paxy who has grown as an outside runner, Heath is just getting better and her role play along with Mithin continues to stop the opposition. We tackle hard and give others very little space, that pressure ensures turnovers. The kicking of Taylor, Gay, Hore and Gillard is beautiful. There's still growth as we are a young team with, Chaplin, Fitzsimmons, Macklin, Sherrif, holding their own

Get our goal conversion right and we dominate.

Finals footy now, Go Dees.

You'd think the AFL might be privately disappointed that they're now looking at a Queensland GF with the likely venue being Metricon in front of two girls and a dog. They'd get 10+k at Marvel.

Did anyone else hear the rumour mentioned on this week’s AFLW Dee Brief poddy that the GF will be played at Docklands regardless of who makes it? 

 

Hi Deemented. If that's true then my guess is that it was a late call by the AFL when they saw Brisbane were likely to finish top and not be able to host at the Gabba. Likewise if Adelaide had finished top there is no way they'd be telling them the GF is moving to Melbourne.

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    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
