POSTGAME: Rd 02 vs Hawthorn



Recommended Posts

Really professional win v the Hawks.

Played a great team game. Didn't get put off by their faux toughness tactics

Let them over-possess the ball before we turned it over time and time again.

Smashed them in stoppages. Killed them with pressure. Covered some big holes in defence with ease.

Great camaraderie that we haven't seen since '21

They look like they have steely determination  

Go Dees

I just finished watching the Replay. 
The “Love Affair” with the Wizard was embarrassing. 
Who is this nobody?

A nickname such as The “wizard” needs to be earned through extraordinary deeds on the Field. 
To call this newbie the wizard was absolutely disrespectful to The Great Jeffrey Farmer, who was indeed a Wizard.

Dunstall pondered that Fritsch wanted number 31, after being drafted at pick 31. Then noted, it's odd because it is nit as though 31 is a popular number. Huddo jumped in to remind him that the number 31 is actually quite famous at Melbourne. 

This isn’t true, anyways. Fritta wanted #35 since he and his dad wore that number throughout their time playing for Coldstream. #35 had already been given to HP so he took #31 which of course he’s happy with.

I love you like I love Brussel sprouts… rather unpalatable, but very good for me. 😅

Your comments keep people like me on their toes. Without folks like you the world would be unbalanced and boring. 😉

I only know what was reported on Kayo. Three broken ribs and a fracture of a vertebra. They said he’ll definitely miss both Adelaide matches and “probably a couple more after that.”

I’ll be going to Gosch’s tomorrow so I’ll see what I can find out.

Currently 10th on our all time goalkicking ladder, should pass Yze soon and could get the Ox and Greg Wells this year too - I’m not as worried as some about defensive efforts, he knows what his job is

How is Norm Smith not on this "all time goal kicking ladder"?

Neither Watson nor Farmer gave themselves their nickname.

Similarly, both had that nickname before they were even drafted.

It's not the kid's fault.  The commentators, on the other hand ....

Very good point. Turns out I was in the modern stats side of AFL Tables that starts at 1965 - on the all-time all-time list Fritsch is down at 21. Rookie mistake by me..

Agreed. Did you hear the line about Kozzie? "He's been good the last 2 weeks after a quiet game against Sydney" He clearly didn't remember Kozzie was suspended for the Sydney clash. The rest of the commentary team fell silent after that line 

Most commentators have no idea about football these days.

I suffered broken ribs about 13 years ago. Ouch!! I've never fully recovered.

Langdon took a season and a half to recover fully.

Same here, so painful. Took me about a month to be able to turn over in bed. Don't know how these players come back so quick

He's getting dementia and forgets names of players regularly. Speaking of dementia, I am not sure he was captain when he left. I thought it was Ditterich to Robbie to Greg Healy to Lyon

Yes you’re right. I got my Healeys mixed up. However he did win a B&F and leading goalkicker for Melbourne and then more than one B&F for Sydney and a Brownlow for Sydney. And his brother was captain of Melbourne at one stage!

Nope, the padding is counted as the post.

thanks to those who commented. It seems the line is marked at the back of the padding, so no goal for Bennie.

Yep. So if the padding hasn't been attached properly and is dangling off the post by half a metre and the ball hits it then that would be hitting the post.

Stay tuned for this future controversy when it happens..

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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.
