Maynard unscathed



Recommended Posts

I thought he'd at least be on the receiving end of one or two crunching tackles.

He gave them instead. And his mate Moore pushed his knee into Tracs spleen.

Way to wave the flag for Gus.

Maynard not bruised even fairly isn't a great look.

Especially after all the talk about a response.

Could have crunched him and still lost by 6 goals; that doesn’t make me feel any better about losing Gus. The retribution I wanted was to smash them on the scoreboard.

Our guys don't do physical pressure that well full stop.

We don't body spoil.

We don't run hard enough straight line at opponents.

We corale too much.

We don't know the sneaky art of hurting opponents. Ala Moore knee into Petracca.

We play happy happy joy joy footy under Goodwin.

No wonder Maysy gets so [censored] off.

Would have preferred him on the trolley rather than Tracca.

There was no need for Moore to put his knee out. It was always a spoil.

Just like Maynards act wasn't a footy one.

That's the dirty way the pies play.

About time for once we did the same.

We were a good player down just like last time.

It's straight out of the filth playbook.

And we let it slide.

Just like we nobody gave Moore a hard time.

Again another weak response.  Aside from Viney, how many blokes actually fly the flag.  Not many soldiers in the trenches !!!! 

Yep ... And though he's tough as they come he aint big or scary.

Don't want to be too harsh on Petracca but did you guys notice the shaking hands he had with the thug as they were lining up for the start of the game?

He should have at least ignores his offering tbh.

Nothing was ever going to happen once I saw him & trac shake hands before the game.

Same here. That was bizarre.

Leave it alone. The goal was to win today not to take Maynard out.

Problem is that we, as a club, are too nice.

It's good to be nice and gentlemanly when warranted, but against the likes of Collingwood... Spare me any sportmanships.

When you’ve got a supporter base full of members who find it to emotionally distressing to turn up. Why should the club go after him? 
 

There isn’t a softer club in the AFL than us. We have as much backbone as the apologists on this forum that think it’ll be ok and we aren’t that bad..

I’m sure I’ll be torn down for this comment. But I couldn’t care less. I went to the game and stood in the outer until the final siren went.

I was one of the 5k melb members there.

Really Layzie.

If your best mate was retired from his career wouldn't you wave the flag for him.

Not talking about illegal whacks but some crunching tackles by several players to at least put him off his game.

Not like he didn't deserve them.

And as for winning the game we didn't. So the two things are not mutually exclusive.

In fact some agro would have served us well I reckon. Maynard played well. We didn't make him panic.

And at the end of the day at least probably put a smile on poor Gussys dial.

    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.

    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
