Carlton stopped dead in the last. We just need a good start and we'll run all over them 

Yeah Sydney 7.8 to 4.3 in the second half tells me of a team that does it’s damage in the first 2 to 3 quarters.

You only have to cast your mind back to round 22 when they stopped to a halt in against us in the second half of the last quarter.

We need to set the tone, take initiative and hit the scoreboard early as we’re clearly a last quarter team. Can’t be playing catch up all night.

Gary Lyon suggests ribs in the Fox post match. See what transpires.

It’s bad enough seeing Collingwood win, Carlton is right up there, I had to turn it off, I was waiting for Cripps to thank the boys in yellow for getting them over the line tonight….

Why were the Fox commentators lauding Sydney for their comeback but bashed us even though we did exactly the same thing?

Read the room. Nobody likes Melbourne. Sydney are brave. Maynard is a hero. Carlton will win the flag.

Its Carlton next week. McKay out concussion. Martin likely to get a week for striking.

Usually they say on AFL site subbed out with injury if concussed. 

Doesn't say anything. But he was clearly unbalanced and his feet were buckling as he went off.

Would have to be concussed you would think, but it's Carlton.

Concussion protocols and tribunal rulings do not apply to Carlton. Pass jail and collect $100.

I’m not fussed about McKay playing or not. If he plays we will probably play a third tall which will suit us. The weather looks dry all week so it’ll be a dry deck. Martin not playing is a bigger win. He was very good against us last time.

Even at draft time it was weird watching him slip down. Was praying we took him but alas wound up with Bowey and Laurie. Not JTs best draft that one.

Pretty much every week a non-MFC player will be killing it and someone on here has to post 😩 we should’ve drafted (in this case, Errol Gulden) instead of (in this case, Laurie and Bowey) 😩 Such a redundant comment and it’s so tiresome.

Did anyone else notice how dazed and confused big Harry looked singing the song with the team?

Bloke looks like he’s got 12 pints onboard.

If the goal umpire is unsure or unsighted then why call it anything? Just say no call!! Then the system has to decide and WHEN it cant, they can start to fix it.

It’s a complete mind-boggling out-of-this-world load of [censored]. Default is a goal, overrule by evidence. It’s the simplest rule tweak possible and yet nothing.

Yes. Did see that. 
 

Between that, and his two absolute clangers on goal tonight, I hope he plays.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
