Does anyone know how much the Afl paid kiss? Can't find it on the internet. Just curious.

Whatever it is its probably more than the cost of modernising the goal post video equipment.

Pathetic rabble the AFL. Atleast we wont have to put up with Gil McLachlan after tomorrow.

Good riddance.

Not holding my breathe on Dillon  being any good.

You Victorians really know how to pick 'em .

Kirner,Comrade Dan then Tricky Gil.  jesus.

Would it be healthy or maudlin if I watched the 2021 GF witth Dennis Cometti commentary.

This one hurts even more than last year... What a waste

That's what I'm doing. No idea why anyone but Pies or Lions fans would watch it.

I've structured my work arrangements so that I'm working for the entire match

Hoping that the Lions win but can't bear to watch Collingwood play at all - full stop!  I just detest them

Anyone painting? Good viewing (relatively) there, too.

Grass growing for mine, T. 😁

I’m not going to watch it but I’ll keep abreast of the score. Then if/when a Brisbane win is inevitable I’ll turn on the TV at the loudest volume, sit a few inches from the screen and drink it all in.

The Dees just won a game in Mordor. Absolutely sheeted it in.

Who cares about the GF?

No One Tumbleweed GIF

For the life of me I can’t understand why any Melbourne supporter wouldn’t be interested in watching our W matches. There’s a Melbourne team absolutely carving up any and all opposition there for the viewing. A genius game-plan, 100% passion and dogged determination, a team displaying sublime skills and the tightest cohesion under a coach who pretends to be a coach but in reality is a wizard. 😁 All this in our beloved red and blue. Who wouldn’t be keen to come aboard?!?! Seriously, these players aren’t just amazing female players, they’re amazing players. Period.

I just hope that daniher and hipwood have their kicking boots on. 

I just think Brisbane can kick the bigger score as they have more forward options.

It would be great if Fagan won to. A coach that never played at the highest level but had the smarts to coach smartly at the top level.

Also what a perfect way to shut up the critics about not being able to win on the G by knocking off the pies in the big one

I'm thinking of changing my mobile number in case the Pies win.  I keep sending them pictures of Trac in beast mode in 2021 and asking them when they last won a flag.  I'm on thin ice

But, did you know despite being seen in general as a successful team, the Pies have only one 2 flags in 65 years? Still chokers. I hope Daniher kicks 10 goals

so you know, [censored] them

They deserve to be on a board EVERYONE sees. Personally I’ve never had so much fun going to the footy. They put smiles on faces. It warms the heart to see so many happy Dees fans, especially the little kids, of whom we’re seeing more and more each week.

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, growin' like a breeze
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads
All my memories gather 'round her
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads
I hear her voice in the mornin' hour, she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Drivin' down the road, I get a feelin'
That I should've been home yesterday, yesterday
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads
Take me home, (down) country roads
Take me home, (down) country roads

Brisbane have to win so I can reply to some of these Collingwood fans on social media.

One Collingwood fan actually wrote he'd rather make these grand finals & even if they lose, than be a hawthorn who won 3 in a row then gone backwards. 

Really? They haven't won a gf in 13 years & are you really proud to boast about it when your club has the most gf losses.

Don't get me wrong I wish we would make more gf and yes I'm annoyed that we have stuffed up our chances but I'll take 2021 than losing 2 hopefully 3 in the last 13 years. 

You'll take 2021 over Geelongs last 10 years as well I guess?

That's as implausible as the Collingwood nonsense.

A flag in 1964 then 2021, then  a  "dynasty "..... 2 seasons  of straight sets  fails,

I mean seriously?

From lions.com.au: Premiership Pride: Jonathan Brown 2003 Grand Final

……Following the first centre bounce for the afternoon, Browny was collected by Collingwood’s Scott Burns in the face and immediately fell to the ground.

He spoke at length to Lions TV, as part of the Premiership Pride series, about this defining moment so early in the game.  

“I got to my feet and thought, geez this isn’t part of the script,” he said.

Bronwy was integral to the Lions’ game plan for a Lions victory that afternoon. After the hit, he vaguely remembers talking to the team doctor but admittingly was frazzled. He welcomed halftime, as his wobbly legs were about to give way.

“It was nice just to have a seat at half time,” he says.

The Lions’ medical staff took care of him but admits, by today’s concussion standards, he may not have been allowed to play on.

    The Demons head back on the road for their fifth interstate trip this season when they head up to Brisbane to take on the Lions under lights on Friday night at the Gabba. Who comes in and who goes out?

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    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

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
