NON-MFC: Round 12



Recommended Posts

Some big games there

If the Dogs beat the Pies and we do the same the following week that's definitely the end of the Pies' top 4 chances.

Of course if Collingwood wins those two and we lose the next two that dire fate may apply to us.

Gold Coast beating the Bombers would finish off the weekend nicely.

Not sure who I want to see win between Port and Carlton. On the basis that we need to replace a top 4 side you could go for Port but hell a Carlton win... Another draw perhaps

Gold Coast were ordinary against Carlton last time out but they’re a different proposition at home. I reckon they’ll get the job done against the bombers. I certainly hope they do.

i find it bizarre that footscray are playing an 'away' game at docklands against the filth

Agree. If non-Marvel tenants must play home games at Marvel then it should not be against a tenant of Marvel.

Pendlebury is out for the Pies...

Collingwood star Scott Pendlebury has been ruled out of the blockbuster against the Western Bulldogs as the reigning premiers count the cost of their mounting injury toll.

Pendlebury failed to complete training at Olympic Park on Wednesday, leaving the track early.

The 36-year-old has been battling an arm injury since last week’s draw with Fremantle.

clarko out for north?

under investigation for 'vile language' direct at port's bench

He copped a suspended ban for the incident early in the year so you would think they activate that now.

They're investigating whether it was directed towards the AFL officials on the sidelines.

Seventh vs eleventh is a blockbuster?  Yeah, nah.

My tips

Power - although i did not see the changes, at home they are still formidable and overall probably are in better form but Blues will know they are very capable of winning this game. 

Doggies - they looked great vs Sydney for most of the match, Pies injuries mounting. 

Hawks - form building, at the G i think they take the chocolates. 

Weagles - at home are a problem

Puddy tats - ez

Dees - in a slog, but we have the weapons 

Suns - At home are dangerous

lol indeed!  ‘Darwin factor’ - are they referring to the Darwinian concept of ‘survival of the fittest’?  Most adaptable wins??

As a social experiment, I decided today to wear an "I Love Collingwood" t-shirt for a week.

So far I've been spat on, verbally abused, punched and had a bottle thrown at me.

I'm curious as to what might happen when I leave the house.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
