Check out the odds for tonight!IMG_4803.thumb.jpeg.0d9137b7e795d38e1bb60a5ae71dc911.jpeg

That’s nuts! But then, considering our current form, and having made short work of them in the *practice match, it shouldn’t really be a surprise.

*I felt sorry for the Hawks players that day. I spoke to a few of them after the match and they were actually in good spirits, happy to be playing at all, is what they said.

Surprised Bannan got up. i initially thought there was some concussion in that incident 

On Aimee am I correct in saying she is more of an fwd unlike her sis? we could do with a good user at HF

Hawks haven’t been blown away and results are solid. i don’t expect a blow out especially at night in Frangers

Hopefully Maddy Gay is purely precautionary, but it makes sense to give players such as Gay and Pearce a rest against the weaker sides to ensure they are available when we need them most.

Good luck to Aimee Mackin for her debut game. Dees to win by 40 points plus.

Maddi’s omission is 100% precautionary. 👍🏽 She could’ve played tonight but they decided to give her the extra week, because they can.

She’ll be back for sure on Thursday.

Aimee is even more decorated a player than Blaithin, which is really saying something. I’m thinking she’ll play forward and I’ve heard she’s a dead-eye-dick. 🥳❤️💙

Yep. Per her post-selection interview (see OP), in her own words she's been 'in and around the half forward line...trying to create scores for the girls in front'.

Looking at her Gaelic footy vision, if she's made the transition from round to oval ball, her delivery skills shouldn't be a problem!

It’s Prelim time in the AFL, and I’ll be taking a close interest in both matches, but nearly as much interest as I’ll be taking in Melbourne vs Hawthorn in the AFLW.  Go Dees!!

Absolutely pumped! On my way to Frankghanistan now and I really could do with a T-shirt that says “Yes, Melbourne are still in it, in the AFLW, anyways.” 🙄

It does attract wordplays, doesn't it,  often of the salty variety. DubDee's of an hour ago, innocently Aussie, is a mistake I once made in refeened company. Never again!

Who starts a game at 5pm on a Friday?

Surely 6pm would have been better for fans to attend or tune in.

Also, this means there'll also be a heaps of Hawthorn kids tune in and this may not be a (PG) result.

They may get scarred, swap clubs and barrack for Melbourne and then eventually follow our men's side and be tortured for the majority of their life!

Just (half) joking

That betting line makes me nervous!

Some more about our debutant: Aimee earnt her a senior football (soccer) debut for Northern Ireland at 16, before she switched to focus on Gaelic and was voted best in the league in 2020. The 26-year-old arrived in Australia last month with a hamstring tear and was unavailable for the practice games but has earned her call-up after three weeks of full training.

And the stats on the venue and oppo:

It's Melbourne's first game against the Hawks and first game at Frankston.
Hawthorn's Frankston win-loss record: 2-2
Hawthorn's 2023 formline: The Hawks have started the year with 2 losses and 1 win, with the latter coming against the Bulldogs in Round 2.

Will probably be a bit of wind about. I won't know because, dedicated to this team as I am, Friday at 5pm in Frankston is a bridge too far!

I bet they were happy. Theyre getting 70-150k? next year to play a handful of footy games while holding down fulltime jobs.They''ll pay off a house in no time.

They must be rapped. Easy.

Birch needs to be dropped now so her poor form is arrested before big games. She’s having an awful year 

I know she’s one of your favourite players but I have to agree. She’s been poor

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
