AFLW: QF vs Adelaide



Recommended Posts


I know Richmond gave Brisbane their only loss for the season but the Lions should win the rematch by around 100pts if they're switched on. Tigers had a pretty easy draw that helped them finish with a double chance. Anyone outside the top three this year really are making up the numbers.

Casey renovations apparently. Dressing rooms being demolished and rebuilt I think

The renovations were scheduled for now before season 7 was announced.

I'm not sure that Adeliade are a chance this year. They have a pretty blunt attack now that Erin Phillips has left. She's a big loss

North are the 4th best team and could create problems for us. We just managed to beat them during the H&A with poor kicking almost costing us that game. They had a tough fixture hence why they finished 8th

I'd be surprised if the granny isn't between us and the Lions. Both teams have been super impressive and very consistent. Neither looked like losing in the run-in.

Same, BDA. But I don’t worry about the Lions like I did about the Crows last season. I really believe we can beat anyone.

Going to miss this one (always knew I should have got the Saturday night tickets for Colin Hay instead of the Friday), will have a late night watching the replay.

I do love going out to see a band and then hunkering down at midnight to watch a delayed match. Sounds like a great night

Any time, anywhere. We have been a far better side than Adelaide this year, and should win reasonably comfortably if we take our chances. Poor goalkicking is the number one threat to us winning a premiership this year, but playing away from Casey Fields show help our efficiency.

2022 at home: 35.45; away 38.36.

Girls have great balance this year and should be too good for the Crows this time.

...at a happy hunting ground:

"The match will be the second time the Dees have played at IKON Park this season, defeating Carlton by 42 points in Round 5".

Not happy. We should be playing at casey but it is not to be. You can bet Adelaide will be happy about the fixture. And to think that the two maggots of the comp in the filth and Geelong have their home ground to play on disgusts me.😒

I reckon North have also improved and built a lot of form since we played them as well...

 

Have my tickets, and hope lots of Dees fans go along. Not our home ground, but let's make it one!

So does anyone want to offer an opinion on the Tigers? It’s easy to see them getting walked over by Brisbane next week but they have beaten them this year (we haven’t) and they also forced North to a draw who had everything to play for. Tigers also apparently have some handy players to come in.

We have continued to improve each week & we’re a well balanced even team who doesn’t rely on 3 or 4 superstars to win it for us. We’re a vastly different side to the one who played Bris and  Nth earlier in the year . Playing away from Casey will help our goal kicking  as well

I hope so too, DiO .

Unfortunately a member of the Demon Army who was at Saturday’s match tested positive for covid this morning. Because our QF is on Friday she won’t be able to attend. Hoping no one else comes up positive. 🤞🏼

Is that a DA protocol, WCW? Cos the public protocol is isolate just while symptomatic, and she might be 'right' by Friday?

As to infecting others on Saturday, no self-respecting virus could successfully navigate between 2 people in Casey's microclimate!

The 5-day isolation period isn’t mandatory but is recommended. She is symptomatic, so is erring on the side of caution.

Most of us have already had covid but that doesn’t mean we can’t get it again. We’ll all be testing daily and hoping no one else has it. 🤞🏼

    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

    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.
