NON-MFC: Rd 11 2023



Recommended Posts


Hate Carlton but maybe let them win tonight to get it out of their system.

Still don't rate the saints but the Hawks have their season quota now

Narrm have to win, the train ride home is just to long otherwise

Cats will win but only because it's at home

Suns to get it done for Dew, F/U Hardwick

Bombers. AFL has a comp where you pick one winner a week, different team each week. If only I had picked the W/C opponent each week.

Tigers to get the new coach bounce against Port. 

No stopping the Pies just yet but it will come.

Crows were too bad to be true last week and the Lions are due to drop a game.

My thoughts exactly. As much as I want them to lose every single game we're never good in those situations. We're always the team to play another team back into form. Heaven help us if they get trounced this week and their coach gets sacked.

It's a big one tonight

Go Swans (simply because I don't want a resurgent Carlton next week)

Continuing on my what's best for us theme

Wins by Hawks, Giants, Tigers and Suns would be good.

Time to concede top spot to the Pies and back them to beat everyone but us. (Yes I hate it but it makes sense and 2 is as good as 1 in the top 4)

Anyone else feeling a sneaky Hawthorn upset or do I need less coffee today?

Probably not but the art of good footy tipping is sniffing out a realistic update.

One thing for sure is that Hawrthorn are a step up in class from North and West Coast and are largely injury free aside from a couple of best 22.

An under the radar upset could be Suns beating Dogs in Darwin.

I was wondering when the last time it was that a team won by 100 points one week, then lost by 100 the very next?

Dorks win was to appease the masses (and WCE are truly that awful). If Hawks want Harley Reid then they're gonna need to get their percentage back in order (and the Saints are good at an easy kill)

There’s something beautiful about Carlton and Friday night footy. 

You mean sort of like a dazzling meteorite falling from the pristine night sky and smashing into the ground with a thump?

    SISTER ACT by Meggs

    In the twilight at Frankston Oval, for the first ever match between Melbourne and Hawthorn, the Demons were clinical winning by 59 points and remain undefeated in Season Eight.   The Melbourne team ran out to a wonderful #DeeArmy banner paying tribute to Ron Barassi, ‘a football legend, the greatest Demon’.     So true!   Meggs was super excited to see Irish recruit Aimee Mackin playing her first game.  Aimee quickly showed us that she belongs out there with composure, ga

    ON SONG by Meggs

    Meggs asks is it time to heave ho the melodies and words of yesteryear and update Club theme songs with some Australian composers and singers?     What prompted this reflection was the discovery that this week’s combatants’ themes were written by the same early 20th century American composer, George M. Cohan.     Cohan’s melodies The Yankee Doodle Boy and You’re a Grand Old Flag have been used by Hawthorn since 1956 and Melbourne since 1912.   Even earlier, the clu

    RUN UNBEATEN by Meggs

    The Demons withstood a spirited challenge from the Western Bulldogs in the 10th anniversary of the Hampson-Hardeman Cup to run away with it in the last quarter and take their unbeaten run to 12 wins on the trot, an AFLW record.   The Doggies were tenacious and their losing score of 6.5.41 was the highest score against Melbourne since their last loss against Brisbane in Round 4 on 18 September 2022.   With the sad passing of AFL football legend Ronald Dale Barassi, champion player

    LEARNINGS OR BURNINGS by GOTO

    Well, the 2023 season is over for the Demons after a two point loss to the Blues in the First Semi Final. All season WE have been hearing about the “learnings” that the team needed to make after each loss, but how much have we actually learnt when they:   1. Lost four successive finals at our own home ground;   2. Fell in five of their last six losses despite having more shots at goal and in the sixth, they had an equal number of shots;   3. Lost seven games by under two

    LOST DOGS by Meggs

    The Western Bulldogs and the Demons have history. Prior to the creation of the AFLW league, the AFL ran four years of exhibition matches featuring our two teams between 2013 and 2016. The winner holds the Hampson-Hardeman Cup, in honour of two women who were founders of the national women’s football competition. After 13 games the Demons hold nine wins, four losses record and currently hold the Cup after trouncing the Dogs last year by 64 points. The exhibition games were a precursor t
