Are we all on the Giants bandwagon?

Reckon it's ripe for the Lions taking. They should belt a banged up Blues and will beat Pies or Giants in GF.

That's what I'm hoping for.

I'd enjoy watching GWS eviscerate the Magpies first though

So it has come this.  I have to support Brisbane and GWS. The latter being one club I had despised since that smirking pr*ck Sheedy paraded Tom 'im only going up for a look' scully in a press conference.  I had begun to admire some of Collingwood but after having to sit near their band of orcish supporters whipping themselves into a frenzied mob a couple of weeks ago they moved back on top of the hated list.  Now joined by Carlton, whose supporters seemed to have one thing on their mind last week and that was to goad Dee's supporters into some reaction. They came down the aisle to wave their arms about, getting into faces and starting fights.  Watch out if there's a Carlton v Collingwood gf .. Then the media hopped on the bandwagon.  Please footy gods, do the right thing and have GWS play Brisbane in the gf and spare us all the local media hype garbage.

I would rather stick toothpicks into my eyeballs than support either Collingwood or Carlton. Can’t stand either team and their feral supporters. I heard some media [censored] on the radio over the weekend stating ‘Collingwood is everyone’s second favourite team now’. I don’t think so.

I sat through two Collingwood GF with my husband- Geelong and WCE and openly supported the opposition. I had to tone it down a bit but there was no way I was cheering Collingwood on on any shape or form.

TBH I don’t care if Brisbane or GWS win - as long as it’s not either of the two Melbourne clubs.

The Giants seem to have everything in sync right now especially their midfield. We shouldn't be overly surprised considering there's still plenty of good talent in there and guys who have played together a long time and know each other's game. 

This has been Josh Kelly's best season for a while in my view and Coniglio who really fell off the cliff as captain is back to playing some really good footy. I also can't get enough of watching Tom Green, that's the player you want first if you're picking your side, game on the line with the clearance there to be won that's the guy.

I don't seek out former Melbourne players and actively cheer for their success but watching Jesse Hogan and the way he's going about it is bringing me a joy that I don't feel often in this scenario. He's moving well, taking some ripper contested marks and he seems to have got his set shot routine down nicely. Working beautifully with Bedford, Daniels and Greene when he gets down there.

Backline is ultra solid and it just shows how much they missed Sam Taylor during the season. Buckley and Himmelberg as well who hold their own in one on ones.

Hopefully Briggs gets up but apart from that I think the Dubs have a bit to offer in this prelim. If they start well and take their chances early they will be pushing the Pies all the way.

If it is Carlton vs Collingwood I'm not watching it!!

I hope so! i just can't see the Giants, off a 6 day break being able to beat the well rested Pies, with Daicos back in front of 95k rabid pies fans. if they can pull it off it'd be one of the best AFL wins of all time

It’s pretty shocking they weren’t given 7 days

Just read an interview with Bedford where he said he now feels valued and the team appreciate the small things he does - or words to that affect.

I still find it astounding that we put 7 years into Toby's development, only to let him slip through the cracks when he was on the cusp of a break out. It's truly painful given we could have done so more.

We have a surplus of small forwards, we were always going to lose one or two

Kozzy & Toby would of been the two to prioritise with AMW developing. 

Totally agree, baffling we let him go.

GO GIANTS!!!  Hell yes on their bandwagon, few ex dees players I'd love it if we still had plus they're playing great entertaining clean fast footy, the type I wish Melbourne were playing more of this year...plus they can kick straight!

I just want to say I told you so. Not you, exactly but everybody. When the hacks in the media started on last year how Collingwood was everyone's second team because everybody "loves the way they play" I said that horse s%&t would not survive an afternoon's exposure to their supporters.

As for hating GWS and Sheedy, yep that was me too, but since the Stolen One's career amounted to nothing much at all I don't give a rat's anymore. I mean really, Tom Whathisface has no presence, is not much remembered except on demonland and had not much impact on the game. If he had stayed with us he would have something, some history, be a one club player with the distinction of helping us through hard times. In other words, he would have a home, but he is just another forgotten figure now. A nobody.

Would love to see the Yank give away a free kick with 30secs to go and either Jesse or Toby kick the winning goal that would be a payback for his knees jumping into Max 

Nah...I want them destroyed in the manner of Sydney in last year's GF plus some. Give them a belting that will damage them psychologically for seasons to come.

    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.

    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
