Novak Djokovic wins French Open, will he win the Grand Slam?
More than half the team have played under 50 games. It's experience and pre-seasons. That's the only fix and it's not surprised we drop off.You have to question North's fitness, they always seem to drop off badly in the last quarter.
Turned into a comfortable win now for Melbourne.
Not so much another team has gone past you or the Dogs; before this I thought Dogs and Demons plus Richmond were the clear best three in the comp (you have to include Richmond for their record over the past few years); but the results sort of drag you a bit closer to the pack of top 8 sides, if you will.I also reckon we were being over rated by the outside, but who has gone past us now this weekend?
There were a fair few veterans that got North the early lead and kept North in it.Just lack the fitness, experience and class atm. Some ‘veterans’ not pulling their weight.
More so critical mistakes at crucial times in the second half when it mattered. The dee's have earned their top spot.There were a fair few veterans that got North the early lead and kept North in it.
Hall and Cunnington were North’s best. Goldstein was pretty solid. Ziebell was good in the first half.
The best period of North’s game wasn’t powered by youth.
Melbourne cranked up the pressure for that period where they came from three goals down to get a couple ahead, then North steadied for a while through their veteran players.More so critical mistakes at crucial times in the second half when it mattered. The dee's have earned their top spot.
What happened ? Thought u wanted to talk footy ? Seems like u wanted to come and troll when melbourne were losing because ur still salty from last week but U went missing when melbourne started winning.I’ve particularly enjoyed talking footy with the smug Melbourne supporters this week.
Only a matter of time before their soft underbelly gets exposed, again.
We would be stuffed without Goldy and Cunnington.Summed up by a earlier poster. Melbourne will lose at some point. North will win at some point. Both seemed possible today. A good sign for us that we can win comfortably after not playing so well majority of the game.
Really think north cut too deep on their list. Have a few soldiers out and can’t cover it. Saying that they’ll be a chance against pies next week.
Not that I think we will win the flag, but how do you come to this thought pattern?Melbourne to win by probably ~5 goals I think, North look done. That said, the weekend has taken the shine off both the doggies and Melbourne as flag fancies.
You want a genuine answer and that's how you sign off? Nice.That is pretty ******* dumb logic
tbf I think almost all Melbourne supporters think we are in the lower part of the contending pack (many still think we aren't even there) and aren't ahead of any of them. The North game was probably our hardest of the year considering we had to come from behind but that is a good sign imo as previous Melbourne teams would have rolled over and lost. The fact we could still turn it on and win when our number 1 asset our contested ball/clearance work was down and our 3 big players had quieter gamesYou want a genuine answer and that's how you sign off? Nice.
'Taking the shine off' doesn't mean your other wins are suddenly 'irrelevant' (and speaking of poor logic, I'm not sure how you used the first term to infer the second), just brings you back to the pack of contenders a bit more. The comment was aimed at how I would perceive opposition players from mid or lower level teams will now go into a Dees game mindset wise - previously it would be 'holy s**t, it's Melbourne'; now there'd be fair bit more positivity - 'if North can go with them for 3 1/2 quarters, then surely we can give it a good shake too'.
