  1. Oliver 28 possesions 15 contested 7 tackles,Seedsman 36, Keys 29. Obviously too lazy to assess on the park, just looked at the stats after the game
  2. Come on Port, do the right thing by us and GO THE BIFF!
  3. First game - round 1 1983 v Collingwood. Peter Moore and Kelvin Templeton first game for Dees. Lost by 4 points, first time i had seen grown men cry at the football - Melbourne supporter near me had his hands over his eyes at the siren with tears pouring out between his fingers. Best game - elimination final v Geelong 2018 - never heard a roar like it. Worst game - 2013 late August v Freo. It was my 60th birthday and my wife had booked a box for me and 12 friends. Food and drinks supplied. Got thrashed in front of a dismal crowd on a cold overcast Melbourne arvo - as bad as it gets.
  4. Wow, some really viscious stuff going on at Big Footy on the Brisbane page. As well as scorching the umps, lot of people jumping off the game (supposedly), fans from other clubs piling on, suggestions that Toby should habe fixed Matt Stevic up properly last week etc etc. Funniest one though was the poster who couldn’t believe they lost to a team with Scache in it. Priceless.
  5. Gee the game has passed Marc Murphy. Didn’t watch the whole game but seemed like he got caught every time he got the ball. Limping to 300.
  6. My very perceptive wife commented,after I whinged about our performance against bottom 4 sides “at least you don’t have to play bottom 4 sides in the finals” - clever girl.
  7. My instruction at half time would be “don’t give the ball to Viney” . Seriously the worst skilled in the team even when he’s got the ball in the open. Confuses ambition with ability.
  8. Fox commentary - “north Melbourne a young side on the rise.” Well, I guess when you are stone motherless last, the only way is up.
  9. Holey money, tigers look like us on a really bad day.
  10. Thoroughly deserved. Meanwhile, Peta Credlin OAM - go figure.
  11. The goal,in the last quarter where they flipped the ball through traffic from the back pocket, got,it to Jordan in the open, followed by a Tommy goal. I was next door with a mate and we went through the roof. We don’t kick goals like that! Oh yes we furkin do now! Getting wacked watching the replay. Happy days!!
  12. Can’t believe the market on this one. $1.34 to $3.40. Think it will be much closer than that. Have the betting agencies just got some chimp in a back room bashing out random numbers?
  13. Beep beep beep - look out the Kama bus is backing up, you cheating handbags!1
  14. Are Grundy and Moore playing injured or do they just don’t give a flying fruitbat? Done absolutely squat. And as I speak, Grundy pops up for a consolation. Pendles spent as well.
  15. Doggies should be booking the Hotham chalets because,boy have they got some downhill skiers in that team. Daniel McCrea, Bruce Schacke, Treloar - put them under pressure and out come the poles Nearly forgot Smith. Bet Naughton doesn’t get a clear run at the ball against us either.
  16. Work colleague (Collingwood supporter) got into me one day about owning a Range Rover and renting a chalet at Hotham during footy season. I replied that at least the value of my car didn’t fluctuate (had to tell him what that means) depending on how much petrol was in the tank. And by the way, we Dees supporters don’t rent, we own. And we don’t let our 14 year old daughter smoke at the dinner table in front of her kids.
  17. Has turned himself from Whipping Boy into the Human Cannonball. Becoming a favourite.
  18. I am not surprised that Weid and BBB didn’t get a gig this week. I watched the game against Box Hill and thought BBB looked rusty and the Weid got a few softies. Win or lose this week, we should get a bucketload of ”learnings”, with a pretty soft draw to follow to ease the big boys back into the side. No flags awarded in April to my knowledge.
  19. Not a gReat fan of AFL360 but enjoying watching Collingwood, cCarlton, Saints Suns getting the living suitcase kicked out of them by these guys, as well as On The Couch. Also content to fly under the radar to an extent after the pasting we have received over the last couple of years.
  20. No games going to be easy this year. Pleasing aspect is that my mates looked at each other after the win against the Pussiecats and said “ Jees the had a real crack, didn’t they!”
  21. I thought Oliver dealt with the tag beautifully on Sunday . He took O’Connor well away from the circle, then pushed off him to the contest instead of being clogged in at the tap, so not being held in at the contest. And as someone else has noted, hit the contest at speed. Do I detect a growth in football IQ in the lad?
  22. We got stuck in the northern stand, right in the teeth of the southerly buster, while our normal reserve seats on level 2 in the southern stand were unoccupied. Not only that, at the end of the game the bar was closed! We were told only bars open on that side in that block were in the mcc members area. Thanks a freakin lot, whoever was responsible for that debacle. If this state of affairs continues much longer, might be spending games at home.
  23. Haven’t seen it mentioned in the media but didn’t we just beat last years grand finalist? With ten more scoring shots? By a comfy 25 points? And by clobbering them in every stat that matters? Must have missed it.
  24. Great game of footy. Both teams so clean with their hands. 34 Williams for doggies just about the coolest head in the game at the moment. Got the dogs out of a few tight moments in the last quarter.
