Aimee Mackin is playing her 2nd ever game of AFL. Next year she will be our best player

 

I thought I was optimistic saying 2 years! 

But I suspect it will only be Hore and Hanks in competition.

This team is something special!

How they adapt to each oppositions strengths is just exceptional. Cats were super tough at the footy early and we just ramped it up around the footy and took away their strength whilst allowing the rest of our game to shine. Unbelievable! So rapt for them ❤️💙❤️💙

Very impressive again. Cats brought the heat early but we absorbed it, steadied and put them to the sword.

We’re a very well-oiled machine and a joy to watch. Ball movement and connection first rate.

Purcell, Heath, Mithen and West all cracked in. Pearce good in the ruck.

Paxy very good. She doesn’t seem to be aging at all. Zanker physical and a handful for the cats defence

Hore with the votes. Outstanding again.

Aimee Mackin with flashes of brilliance. Reckon she’ll be better than her sister. We’ve hit the jackpot with those 2

14 in a row. Fantastic consistency. Smashing all comers so far this season.

This team just don’t look like losing. What a pleasure it is to watch them play

Go Dees

Methodical.

Its so commanding - you get annoyed when players aren’t perfect. The connection they have with each other on the counter is pure gold and glory. 

The men’s team can learn something from this group when it comes to decision making and using hands and not panicking around the 50.

Decent crowd on the camera side and that Aimee Mackin move off the back flank toward centre wing was absolute dynamite.

How great to watch are these women!?!? Brilliant. Their end to end handball chains for goals are the standout. And the last quarters - wow.

But who was that commentator? Lots of ex-footballers and commentators show bias, but she was grumpy, ungracious and unable to even commentate about the Dees. She often just went silent when someone gave us a compliment.

On top of the ladder with a % of 306.9 after 5 games. Not too shabby at all. 
 

Can anyone do the math on that last quarters stat for this year? Must be something like 140 points for / 5 points against. 
 

Can’t wait to watch the game later!

Best win of the year. Geelong had a real go but just lack polish. 49 points against a side pushing top 4 is great. Imagine if we had Harris in rhe fwd line. Even bigger test next week. Hore, Paxman, Zanker and Pearce our best. Hanks was great as well. Love it when Goldie gets the ball as it is real heart in mouth stuff that.

No team has kicked a goal against Dees in 4th quarter this season! 🤯

...or the 9 games before that!

If my quick maths is correct, 4th quarters are 125 points for and 4 points against, the last 3 rounds the opposition in fact hasn't scored a point in the 4th. Incredible.

I thought the Hawks got fumbly last week because they're at that standard.

But tonight I realised it happens because that's what this Melbourne team makes the opposition. Real pressure becomes implied pressure, and, the real pressure still continues, unabated.

Crows and Suns game on Sunday evening will be a worth a watch. haven't seen the Crows play yet but the commentators reckon they're our nearest rival. Suns are decent so will hopefully test them. North and Lions aren't as good as us based on their game last week.

    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
