You don’t think Brisbane is worried about their record at the MCG, given you gotta win there to win a flag? 

edit: I just listened to Fagan talk about this in the post match conference. He seemed to laugh it off but ultimately said he doesn’t know if it’s an issue or not. 

After losing to a bottom four club coming back from a big loss in Adelaide i can assure you.... he now knows it's an issue.

I'm a bit  confused about that Red  ..... nonetheless  I have squashed a few sheilas over the years

Going by your avatar, that doesn't surprise me one bit.

PS: Squash Courts are inside and you play in court, whereas in tennis you play on court, even if there is a roof.

If the Daicos bros have what I just had, I legit feel sorry for them.

I have never felt so unwell. 

Woke up with white tonsils, sore throat, headache, running nose... slept almost 20 straight hours. Zero energy. Couldn't eat. Lasted 2-3 days. Then suddenly better.

Can't see them getting up for Monday if they're still sick today. What's goint around Melbourne atm is brutal.

Apparently they are 10 times worse!

GOOD!🤣

They were paddling in that last quarter, which is why the hawks attacked with run all game.

Incomparable to their running power they have shown most of the season, including their first half blitz of us in round two.

It didn't look like a target match for them.

They are no different to us - it's all about September.

@binman interested as to why you think Brisbane have shown running power all season.  Statistically, they are at the bottom of running power and have only outrun Essendon this year.  My guess is it’s why they struggle at the G.  Also, the Hawks are actually a good running team and are the only team to match us in total distance and high speed distance this year. They are inconsistent like any young team though.

So it’s probably not a surprise the hawks, despite being near the bottom, have beaten the Lions, who have been pushing for top 4, each of the last 3 years at the G.  You could argue it cost the Lions a top 4 spot last year. It may cost them again this year.

There is vision of Nick Daicos training today on Collingwood’s social media platforms. Where are these rumours about illness coming from

Well I just spent about 3 hours around crowds at Rising in the city tonight and will be at the game with 85k+ on Monday.

I'm doomed aren't I?

Just had a look at the Collingwood training thread on Bigfooty forum.

- Elliott didn’t do match sim and apparently said to supporters that’s he’s not playing.

- McStay didn’t do match sim either.

- McCreey a solid chance to play.

- Cox trained well despite COVID rumours.

- J Daicos didn’t train due to illness.

Was comparing their running.power against the hawks to their normal levels.

You're right, they are not quick, or great runners, and it is no doubt a factor in their poor record at the g. 

But they had no spread at all in the last quarter against the hewks. No zip either 

And not much better in the second (I didn't see the first half).

That was not an issue until the last couple of rounds.

The hawks really looked to exploit that flatnes.

But as you point out, they have done so for the last few years.

The story is Christina Petracca has special edition footy boots for the game which will be auctioned to raise funds for MND 

Great gesture by him.

Very glam footy boots!!

Lets hope that all of these players under a cloud wake up feeling lower than a shizzenhuiser carters top hat!

There must be a chance that more Magpies will be under a cloud  because of their interaction with the infected players recently.

One can only hope!

Too many words and it freaks me out. Just say…

…Collingwood infected cloud.

Yeah, that’s better. 3 words. Better.

If any Collingwood player have had the flu/covid and play they will fall in a hole in the second half of the game. Seen it before with teams including our own many years ago. The Pies also played in WA last weekend and are they have had an extra couple of days to get over it, but The Bomber are the only team to win after that trip this year and they just fell in. I am expecting us to run them off their legs in the second half.

Many views, but mostly I like to think this is about messaging from the media outlets, preparing the great Collingwood unwashed  for a loss. It’s either that or our game is now more transparent… 🤷‍♂️😊

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
