I played at the Anzac Day game this year. Was all live. 

The grand finals are all mimed. The vocals are live with some extra in the mix to fill it up. I think powderfinger played one live many years ago but that’s about it.

Nah, Meatloaf also mimed his. Was just a poor mix. Wasn't Meaty's fault.

True.  Paul Kelly played live too apparently. That’s why you don’t play live. You end up sounding like poor old meatloaf.  The afl doesn’t spend anywhere near enough on production to give the music a chance.

The absolute state of Collingwood supporters whenever someone dare suggest that Melbourne might win. My god they are a fragile bunch. 

It has come to my attention that apparently plenty of Collingwood supporters hate Melbourne. I’ve had quite a few comments along the lines of “especially against Melbourne”. I never noticed this before. Perhaps it’s just cause we are playing them this week and that’s how they operate. Some serious arrogance amongst them.

I legitimately hope it's just us fans that read into the 1st vs 4th stuff and how 4th place never wins a flag. 

With everything that these players go through they hopefully don't get caught up in all the superstitions and would just be stoked to get this final on the G. Win and all bets are off. 

Plus in my mind we finished second. 4th spot due marchbank point . And poor umpiring.

We're a bona fide 2nd in quality.

Good call Tommy in, I reckon Spargo will be the Sub.  Start with 3 tall forwards, Smith can go back if Turner struggles.

Wouldn't surprise me if Hibberd took Turners spot

Spargo is a bad sub. No versatility and he’s a low possession player at the best of times. 
My guess is Hibbo will be sub if he isn’t in the team. Or Laurie again.

I think after a H&A season of the media telling them and they thinking they are 2023 premiers it has finally dawned on them that they actually have to win Tomorrow , are in average form and play against a really tough opponent  and that it could all go [censored] up for them.

Tmac staring down a possible second premiership medal. At his age and with the state of his body, he would be silly not to relish this chance and leave nothing out there.

He has absolutely nobody pushing for his role either, unless Ben Brown can get a knee replacement done in a week. So no fear of messing up and losing his spot. 

Just needs to stop Moore. If he scores goals then all well and good. Thats a bonus

Spargo more if it does rain and we are struggling to mark the footy up forward.  He is clean and skilful the type of player you need in the wet

Or maybe it's because in the seven grand finals where Melbourne has played Collingwood, we've won six of them. 

And even if this isn't the reason, it's always nice to read this statement of fact in any context.

I was joking haha. Not a very good joke. Meatloaf's voice was shot.

Apologies if posted elsewhere. This might make some breathe a little easier when it comes to our forward line.

Melbourne can be just as effective no matter which seven players are ahead of the ball.

Hooray. Someone finally looked at the figures, not the injury list.  🔵🔴🔵

Tonight channels 7 and 9 are sending cameras to banner. I’d recommend watching channel 9 on this occasion since Nick McCallum will be there. He’s not just doing his thing then leaving, he’s gonna hang with us for an hour and a half.

[censored] got real when we knew tonight’s banner was upon us. We had banner on Monday as well, made the women’s and the backing for the men’s. That night it was all lighthearted and fun as it usually is. But today, as we left the sausage sizzle we were all very solemn and quietly saying “see you tonight.” It’s like we’ve all conspired to commit a murder and it’s happening tonight. 😁

    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
