Great win. We played Adelaide really well at their physical game. There wee a few moments I really enjoyed tonite. Bannons run in the 2nd was delirious. How many times will you see a mens player get on a run like that. Practically never. 

Purcell I thaught was our best player and I love West going in for the footy like a bull in a chook shed. Apart from their pumped up start I thaught our backline players were excellent. Gay, Birch and Gillard were great all night.

Yes, loved Bannon’s balk around the mark to run in to goal. The crows were dumbstruck…….she’s a talent there is no doubt about that….

Wow. Seemed like way more were there. That’s probs because the crowd tonight was particularly vocal, rowdy even. Mostly Dees of course. And quite a lot of kids, which is great.

Tough first quarter, and in the second we said we are not going to take it anymore!

We didn't handle the early pressure, were well beaten at stoppages, and lacked any system going into the forward 50. Concerned about our need to break tackles, but eventually we were able to do it.

Our tackling was great, though we were not rewarded by umpires for it.

Zanker took a while to get into it.

Loved the way Hanks reads the play, thought our best was her and Purcell.

How about Bannan, take it on, wow.

Others who played well were Mithin for her role of closing down others and the number of hard hits she took, also Lampard, Macklin, Gillard, Chaplin, Sheriff, Daisy, Paxy, Lauren, West, and Goldy.

Taylor gets a hard run from the umps. First Quarter, blocked when in mark contest, pushed in the back when rucking and a hit to her head. Doesn’t complain, just keeps going harder.

Great coaching again, Hore, to on the ball and used as an outside carrier really messed with the Crows set up. He got the match ups right after the first, and closed down their ball getters/movers. Loved that he talked to Mithin at half-time, maybe about how to avoid the tackler and to prioritise tagging.

Hore needs to goal when out front, know the moment, a 12 point turn around and gave them a sniff.

Well fought after that, by the team. The Crows didn't like it, LOL, (somebody did belt Randall) we gave them no room, our pack running and tackling hurt them.

Birch loves her footy.

Chaplin looks to be the talker at the start of the second, all buying in.

Good win Dees.

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.

Colin Hay was great...got home and just finished the replay.

How good was that!

Will read everybody's posts tomorrow but a couple of quick thoughts.

Mackin is improving with every game and super important tonight. How good will she be when she learns the game.

Gillard is surprising me, another improving with each game.

Bannan! that 6 bounce run was insane. Then add the rest of her game. X-factor plus.

That was a free to Hore at the end...Randall dived and took her legs out.

Bannan is such an x factor.  Athletic traits with skills to match. Very few, male or female, can execute a 6-bounce run at speed. Or have the presence of mind to run around on the mark to get within range and kick the vital goal. She's next level footy smarts and a phenomenal weapon to have in the team

About 2,500 I think 

2,555. Very passionate support came through on screen and sound right into my Brisbane living room. 

Very proud of the support last night and our AFLW Membership record.

Lets see if we can beat the membership record in crowd numbers for the Prelim even if we play an interstate team. 

BTW just as proud of the team and their footy and team spirit and support of each other.

They clearly play as a team and for Mick Stinear who is clearly coaching at the top of his game. 

Absolutely  remind me of our 2021 Men's heroes this season the way they have improved since the Lions beat us earlier in the season. 

Go Dees.

So impressed by the way the coach and players stayed calm and stuck to the plan, enabling us to get the game back on our terms after a fumbly and flat-footed start. 

That’s the kind of belief in the system - and each other - which helped the boys triumph last year. 

Mackin sells candy and steps around opponents like she’s been playing footy all her life. What a jet and a joy to watch. Likewise Bannan. 

Liv Purcell best on ground for mine. Gets lots of it and always uses it well.

So happy for Edo!!! Her sister and her partner were with us out on the field pre-game. The DA gave her partner Eden’s giant head to keep and she was stoked. The support the girls get from family and friends is phenomenal. And that’s here as well as interstate. Pity all Clubs aren’t so invested. So proud of our girls 💕

Eden’s partner is in the centre holding the giant Eden head. And her sister who possesses neither her height nor her footy prowess (her words, not mine 🙂) is second from the left.

Doesn't appear to be a thread for  Bris v Richmond. Loved the girls performance yesterday. I'm watching today's match and it's frustrating/ doing my head in that so many instances of incorrect disposal or caught in possession just get waived away.

I watched a fair amount of last night's game RTGand thought the same thing.

I'm wondering whether the umps have been instructed to keep the frees down. It certainly adds to the play on free flowing nature of the women's game. As a poster noted above the women's game is evolving in its own unique way .

This is a good thing of course as it will always be "different" to the men's game

I wondered the same thing BBO. And maybe I need to adjust if that's the case.....but jeez 😁

There's no question that the AFLW has come a long way since that first season skill-wise and perhaps the umpiring will evolve as the skill level continues to lift

Brisbane are impressive, although inaccurate in this match, but they still don’t worry me. Our best is infinitely better than theirs.

Im watching the Brisbane V Richmond game too. If the Tigers are the 4th best team they may as well just let Us and the Lions play the Grand Final next week and let the other teams play off for draft spots.

This is a constant week in, week out. The umps allow way too much leway re incorrect disposal. It penalises teams that are more skillful and want to take the game on, and benefits teams that just want to bash and crash.

It's time they start umpiring to the standard of the better players, rather than the new recruits from other sports.

And I’ve highlighted the word that makes me even more confident. 🙂They’re ok. And we’re more than ok. We’re on 🔥

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    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
