NON-MFC: Round 04



Recommended Posts

Interesting how Quaynor just escorted that bouncing ball over the boundary with a minute to go! What is the rule on insufficient attempt?

Gee I didn't see a minute of the game because of work but it seems the hawks gave away a to big a lead at half time. 

It also seems they dominated the final quarter but found it hard to get that extra goal.

It's a shame they couldn't get that final goal & steal it by a point

Just left the game, as bad as Hawks were to half time once they worked Collingwood out Magpies had no idea, very lucky to hold on.

Collingwood are putrid. 

For three years they have gotten away with their dead ball gameplan whenever they're threatened. It is putrid football and Carlton does the same thing. It doesn't work without good ball users which they have. But if you stop their outside runners and in particular Daicos as Hawks did to some degree tonight, you can beat them. Hawks should have won that and would be hitting themselves over throwing that away. I reckon Pies are in for a rude awakening when they play GWS, Melbourne, and even GC.

Think of it as an emotional hedge.
We all want Collingwood to lose  but if they don't you're financially rewarded. I have a number of friends who have won/lost lots of money betting against their own teams.

Dennis….Rod…???

The AFL should all be sacked over this. But of course they will all survive. 
They had 6 months to fully sort this out after the Adelaide debacle, and have done Sweet F$&@ all. 
The Arc is pathetic. They spend time reviewing shots that are clearly fine, but refuse to make serious calls because the Cameras are total garbage 

we the Fans and the Clubs must demand that the AFL fit 4k Cameras at every AFL VENUE 

Paid for by the AFL, not the Broadcaster 

Maybe the suits will have to take a Pay Cut

 

I take it that you are a little disappointed with the AFL.

Bobo, presumably you are a fan of Radiohead. I assume you have a critical lens when you look at the world. I think you know the answer to your question 😊

On a side note - this morning, I was reading about the death of 'music videos' and the art the goes into making them. I'd suggest that the music videos for the OK Computer singles were some of the best of all time as a combination.

Huge fan… YES! The film clip to ‘Just’ is my favourite of all time. No surprises is also up there.

That’s interesting, now that I think of it, I can’t remember the last time I really watched any music videos 🧐🧐🧐

Have you seen the behind the goals vision BoBo? 
Clark must’ve given the ump an almighty spray after Cottrell kicked the goal because you can see his teammate in Walker waving his arms telling him to stop. 

I saw it last night yeah, I guess my inclination is, if umps had been paying the dissent rule more often, players wouldn’t feel like they could keep going? It’s another rule that is a victim of being applied seemingly at random thus players are now doing it more often. If it’s a rule then apply it every time it happens or get rid of it is my thinking.

Yes he did. According to other media reports, it was quite vicious.

Wouldn't exactly be something they haven't heard before, if they listened to it at the games i have attended.

Pavlov's dogs only needed occasional reinforcement to stop. 😄

    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.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
