This is not going to be a walk over. The only certain win right now is West Coast. We have to come out and start well to take the crowd out of the equation

Like we did last week vs port?

Half of Adelaide actIng like it’s Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Elton John and Pink in one big mega-show. The other half are all, oh that football thing is on now, is it? What’s it called… The Gathering? (A woman actually said that to me. 😅)

The best traditional (jam style) donuts in Melb.

The piece de resistancee... the plum jam filling 👌🏻

Not to be confused with the hot (ball) jam donuts at the footy et al whIch are also pretty special.

Probably thought we were card nerds or something.

This game and West coast are probably our best chances for 100 point win.    Other teams will do it to them so we have to as well.   Percentage could be king at end of season.  Fill your boots Dees!!

Lol, you're kidding right?

I'll eat my hat if we win by 100.

Hunter, Laurie, Spargo, AMW, Woewodin, Fullarton, Tholstrup, Melksham, Tomlinson, McAdam, Adams, Brown, Turner, Sestan all are attempting to break into the side. It's funny when you're winning, even your depth looks fantastic. It was less than a month ago I was bemoaning our thin list. :) 

That's because you flip flop, ya duffer.

I think I'm the most nervy when people start talking margins as if the win is Fait accompli.

Forget Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Elton and Pink. Whenever I see it written as "The Gathering" I keep thinking of Diana Ross and the Supremes singing "The Happening"

Will miss the first quarter or so of this game travelling on an interstate flight.

The last time something similar happened, I switched onto the footy in my hotel in Perth and saw the MFC amazingly in the game on the scoreboard against Geeeelong at Cat park in Gawn's breakout game.  We know how that turned out!

...hopefully that's an omen.

Nah no walkovers this week. Getting a win alone will be a pretty good achievement against a mob who is desperate and in their own park. 

Spot on.  Flying out tomorrow with two wins from two in the toughest gather round draw for sure (playing both SA teams in a true home ground advantage to them) will be the in-season highlight for me.

A one point win will satisify me.

Our draw BTW is scandalous but predictable AFL stuff up of the important things.

Quiet on the old boards 90 mins before bounce. You'd think it was a weeknight.

Trying to frantically get everyone fed, showered and [censored] off is a marathon on a Thursday night post work and pre football. 
I absolutely loath Thursday night football. Such an unfriendly fixture for anyone under the age of 70.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
