  1. Some of Shelley Scott’s and Kate Hore’s marking would have been considered good on a dry day let alone in the pouring rain. A lot of smart plays in general too with tapping the ball over the back and trying to keep it moving our way. Played the conditions perfectly. It’s also nice coming on this AFLW match day thread and not have the “skill level isn’t as good as the men’s comp” crowd to contend with.

  2. Daisy playing with and organising the backs could end up being an inspired move. The Luke Hodge of the AFLW.

  3. I don't care that there are people out there rubbishing this game. I enjoyed watching tonight. Our pressure was great. Maybe because it's just great to see Melbourne win if it's the male or female team. Plus we have some awesome players & a great leader

  4. Just watched the second win for our Women’s team... fantastic win against the other inaugural women’s team ...the Bulldogs. Thought the standard had definitely improved last year but found this game very enjoyable to watch. Are the skills there ...not yet ...but intent & willingness...100%...What I love...the passion for the jumper...something exciting happening this season ...Go Dees !!

  5. Great win! I've loved both games from Zanker this year. She's got a great future in this comp. Size, pace, good decision making, overhead marking and kicking; what's not to like? (You may recall the set shot goal she made last year as a teenager from 45 out on the boundary late in the 3rd against the Bulldogs.) Also liked the games of Shelley Scott, Kate Hore, Shelley Heath, Maddie Gay, Aleisha Newman, Meg Downie and Libby Birch. It's been a great start for us given the loss of three key players with season ending knee injuries before round 1 (Lauren Pearce, Katherine Smith and

  8. The secret agent had to be clever, about how he was going to get a viewing of the top secret training session, it is so classified that everyone was only told 1 hour before training on its location. I have the coaches phone tapped, the notification buzzes on my phone, I quickly listen into the phone tap, Goodwin is talking to Burgess about the training ahead, what he was saying was amazing and mind blowing, it could be so revolutionary and crazy it could change football for ever. I arrive 15 minutes before training starts I am hiding in a tree, in camouflage gear with my binocu

  9. The rort: "How are we going to lure de Goey from the Pies? They're offering him 5 mil over 6 years. And WCE are offering 6 mil over 7. We can't match that." "We'll offer 12 mil over 8 years. His management won't be able to sign fast enough." "Sure, but we can't afford that!" "No, but we can afford 4 mil over 8 years. We'll back end the 12 mil, and when he's old and useless we'll pay out half a mil and won't have to wear the rest on our salary cap." --- If "player A" is Alex Neal-Bullen, no one is going to upset at us getting an extra 250K back on our cap.

  10. I read somewhere before the season that we had a tough start to the season with two games against premiership candidates in North and the Bulldogs. A long way to go and we are in a very tough conference but so far, so good.

  13. She is a beast. Plays like a linebacker. Loves putting on a hit. Managed to have herself a Jimmy Stynes moment as well Thought young Eden Zanker really set the tone for tonight's win.

  16. Daniel Kerr had a rough summer That game was classic (was 1990 you're thinking of) Players walked off the ground arm in arm giving the supporters the finger while singing Grand Old Flag (Bennett, Grinter and Wilson being prime offenders from memory). Unfortunately they had the last laugh knocking us out of the semis one month later Collingwood was always my most hated team but Hawthorn and West Coast weren't far behind as a kid. We won the 88 Elimination Final but they knocked us out in 90, 91 and 94 and then again in 2018. I really hate the Eagles, arrogant tossers as well who alwa

  17. It goes without saying that Daisy is the true champion of the league she helped create. Elise O'Dea will just become unstoppable as the benefits of professional level conditioning and preparation have their effect. I do feel a little sad that O'Dea couldn't get any of that, say, ten years ago. But my gut says she'll be around for a while yet to reap the benefits. May even play out the later years of her career as a difficult forward. But what I can't shake is the regular feeling that Karen Paxman is just that much more poised and fluent than most of what goes on around her. That collect

  19. I know that this is not directly MFC related, but I do think it's great to see an AFL player/person come back from a pretty dire situation and making a good fist of it. For Norths sake, I hope he is able to deliver some star performances in a struggling side. https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/afl-2020-north-melbourne-intra-club-report-majak-daw-bridge-fall-round-1-ben-cunnington-forward/news-story/904ab94281fd8ed76f1b839498d35cc2

  31. Agree 100% We paid pratically nothing for KK trade wise and the MFC knew what they were potentially up against when we signed him up. If KK had have shrugged off these concussion issues, then everyone here would be doing cart wheels. Just because the punt we took hasn't paid off, then that doesn't mean the MFC should drop KK like a hot spud. I think it's important that the club maintains support and treats injured players in a respectful manner, as they appear to be doing and personally, I that also extends to us as supporters.

  34. It's a farce that Nesbitt is still in that role, he was the Architect of brushing everything under the carpet. 15 years on he talks differently in public when questioned about the health of some of those players now, but he knew a lot of what was going on and they chose a flag tilt over players long term health. I've had a fair bit to do with the Cousins family and it's a tragedy how Ben has turned out, as a parent it's not nice to witness and the media actually need to just leave it alone

  38. Arguably the most underpaid 4 time premiership player in the modern game. When he played for us he used to work at Swan Auctions in Richmond manhandling furniture. Struggles with the demon drink cursed him. In today’s games with the right attitude he would be worth close to a million a season.

  39. Lions were his 4th team. I saw an interview with him where he said he thought his career was over and then Matthews gave him a last chance. He said he had to play there for almost nothing the whole time he was there through 4 GF’s and 3 Premierships.

  40. A very enjoyable game to watch from start to finish. Even with the close score it didn't stress me as the team always looked in control. Big 8 point win early in the season. Interesting to see how the team wash up across the two conferences.
