  1. Stinger Bennett has got the channel 7 memo. Thank Christ we're kicking straight. This feels like the men's team playing Collingwood. We're the better team Hanks needs to take a step up. We're going to have to beat the lions and the umps tonight. We can do this.
  2. Oh, not stopping play for Goldrick but happy to stop play for a sore lions player
  3. We are not going to get one htb or incorrect disposal free all night (unless it's junk time)
  4. Great goal Tayla Jason Bennett has had a channel 7 labotomy. Shouting more and more. Looks like it's gone numb..... Your brain has mate
  5. They shut down Hanks well that quarter too. Our defence hasn't been challenged like that much this season, so it was good to watch them tighten up as the quarter went on. Umpiring seemed pretty dodgy. We'll straighten up. Go Dees
  6. Loved the Hawks pride jumper. It's a real trip man.
  7. I'm really pumped for tonight's game and the finals ahead. Harris back in at just the right time. Go Dees.
  8. The aflw has bugger all money involved and I'm focusing on enjoying the women play instead. And yep the AFL smells like a dead fox
  9. I actually think her opponents give her a wider berth than most players for just that reason. One punch and you know you're going to be on your bum. Tayla plays incredibly hard but fair I reckon. She shows some pretty good discipline.
  10. Shouldn't let your chooks drink coffee WCW. They'll be up all night. You might get some tasty eggs though.
  11. Yep @dazzledavey36 been thinking for ages that Mick should be in helping Goody in some capacity at aflw seasons end. It's not just culture, he seems to be a great tactician as well. He's a gem
  12. Every week I find something new to be impressed and deelighted by this team. What a wonderful team.
  13. Haha, fierce ugly crying! love it. Yeah, that's been one of the wonderful things with this team. Being part of watching them just get better and better. The evolution of their skills and game plan has been so good to watch. Remember when we couldn't score even though we'd dominate games. That wasn't so long ago and it's now a thing of the past. The demons of 2023 would smash the demons of 2021 yet we're a pretty similar team personnel wise. This probably sounds a little condascending but it does remind me a lot of watching my local footy club. Watching a great team of juniors coming through from U17's and by the time they hit the seniors, you've got a gun team that you've just watched grow in confidence and skill. Very excited for the rest of this season. Home ground advantage for the finals would be awesome.
  14. I can't help but reflect on the blokes and the differences between the two teams. Campbell and Pearce have found their groove tag teaming in the ruck. I wondered last night why we expected Grundy to be a goal kicker. These two women aren't really expected to score that much, they just do their job really well and rely on a high functioning game plan and forward entries to creat the scoring opportunities. I wonder if we just expected too much of Gawn and Grundy to somehow band aid our forward line woes.
  15. Haha yes. Witnessing my first dees premiership in the flesh. An unforgettable moment ❤️
  16. Bugger. Running an open mic session at our flood recovery/ community hub on Saturday arvo. Will be watching on delay later that night by the looks. Enjoy the night. Go Naarm
  17. I'm with you @Palace Dees. I was thinking the same thing in the last quarter. Battle for top position and we were just incredibly relentless. Both in our tackling and defense but I also loved our attacking. Until we iced the game, every opportunity we had, we seemed to just turn and play on. We just kept moving the ball forward as fast as we can. This is the best Melbourne team I have ever witnessed in my life time. Better than our 2021 premiership team. I'm off to the culture thread. How cool was it to watch them laughing and dancing as they left the field after destroying a decent opponent. Btw. We're in northern NSW and would love to see them play Brisbane in two weeks time. But we don't know when or where they'll be playing. @WalkingCivilWar any ideas?
  18. What an incredible welcome to country that was. I've only had a little bit of time with elders, that fella covered so much from what I've learnt from them. Mentioning children born on their land are considered part of their country and from their country is beautiful. Loved it.
  19. Makes you wonder hey. Saw a fair bit of footage on fox last year showing our forwards being very static. You do wonder if the bomb into a pack is the last option because there's no-one in space worth kicking to. Bringing it to ground and trying to score from a stoppage in the forward line seems a very low percentage option to me. Can't completely blame the mids, can't completely blame the forwards, or the injuries or the kicking. A bit of everything really. Whichever way you look at it, our systems need a refresh. That's something completely under our control. It cost us a place in the grand final this year I reckon.
