FWLIW, Alison O'Connor on AFL.com.au is tipping us to win this by 7 points. Interesting...

https://www.afl.com.au/news/1024726/mega-preview-magpies-v-demons-the-stats-that-matter-who-wins-and-why

Yet the odds are still slightly favouring Collingwood. I suspect they might come in again (as they have today) with the announcement of the teams tomorrow night.

Squiggle has it bang on 50% with a slight tilt towards Collingwood. Not sure how that calculation works given most of the models are tipping Melbourne. Although the aggregate model that looks at the top 10 models has it at 50%, with Melbourne to win by...0 points.

The only people I've seen confident about thia game are Collingwood supporters. The level of disrespect and disregard for us as a team as staggering.

Is it just me or are others going through game scenarios in there head and how tomorrow night will pan out when they're either at work or just having a quiet moment on there own?

I'm feeling nervous as all hell and tomorrow will be a long day. I think because my biggest fear is sitting there having to hear the feral fans at the end of the game because they beat us.

When do the teams get released?

Not sure, but the parole staff release the Magpie fans just before game time.

That might just be Mr Squiggles inherent Collingwood bias ;) 

The guy is a filth supporter i understand  😉 lol

It’s only week one of the finals and the media requests have already started to come in. Channels 7, 9 and the ABC have asked that cheer squad members (those who can) turn up at various locations this Thursday and Friday mornings for live crosses during their breakfast shows, beginning at 5:30am. We’ll have members turn up, just as we did last year. 

Our Collingwood counterparts were also approached for the Thursday morning outside the ‘G live cross at 6am but declined the request because it’s “too early for them.” True story. 

If Centrelink opened at 6am it wouldn’t be “too early for them.”

I had a dream we kicked the first 3 goals of the game and won by 45 points. 
My dreams are never right but take this one to the bank 😂

I had a similar dream where we came home with a wet sail and kicked the last 5 goals to win.

But my dreams are really weird in detail, the game was at Fawkner Park for some reason.

It will be Fawkner Memorial Park for Collingwood 😈

tmac in the mix

Melbourne key forward Tom McDonald is on track to play his first game in almost four months in the Demons’ blockbuster qualifying final against Collingwood on Thursday night.

McDonald was overlooked for selection in the Demons’ two finals last year due to a foot problem and underwent surgery mid-year due to a serious ankle injury.

But the premiership forward looms as the ideal replacement for ACL victim Jake Melksham after bagging five goals in the VFL last week to press his claims for AFL selection against Collingwood.

He is expected to partner Bayley Fritsch, who has received the all-clear from a foot complaint, and young colt goalkicker Jacob van Rooyen in attack for the clash against the Magpies.

If you can't get in and find your set in 35 minutes something is wrong.

Having said that it will be a bit of a logjam with digital tickets,bag checks and those fake metal detectors can really bog things up sometimes. On second thought get there at 6:30 if you can

They've got detectors for fake metal now? Who would have thought.

And they don’t even (pretend to) scan everyone entering the ground anyway.

It is a scam - but then it is AFL (“draw”, MRP, tribunal etc etc).

I really dont think it will rain much at all now, a shower or 2 maybe.

 

The forecast has definitely changed. The cold front they were expecting on Thursday night is coming in Friday now. There will still be a weaker front coming in the late afternoon, which will make the ground wet. However the wind is predicted to be up, which 1) could help dry the deck out more quickly 2) would add a different challenge to the game in goal kicking and general kicking accuracy.

Pity the AFL are so tight that, like the score review system, they won’t expend a few dollars to provide roaming mikes to the questioners at these press conferences.  I guess directors’ bonuses and overseas junkets are a higher priority.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
