What a ripping game. Surprised the Blues got up, but happy for them. Pretty confident that the Lions will get up at home next week.

So now that the dust has settled, can we all agree the Melbourne absolutely bottled that one? I wonder if their supporters have stopped turning on themselves. Their board was pure anarchy last night. Stay classy, Dees supporters.
You're assuming they had any class to begin with...
 
Yeah we played the pies and lost by a goal. Who'd you guys play? Sydney? Who shouldn't even be playing finals. There's finals and then there's finals.

Played the Dees last night, Danny. Can understand why you've tried to forget about it already though.

We'll see next week. I'm actually going to go for the blues but they're just making up the numbers. It's a dangerous game when you're relying on other teams to miss shots on goal.

Devastating loss. 17 behinds. Massive choke. Nothing really went out way. Goal reviews never went our way, 50m penalties against constantly, we hit the post so many times, and costly misses.

Carlton were ok, but we simply couldn't kick the ball through the big sticks. It was just so frustrating. A massive choke.

We were never the same team once Petty went down. Melksham was the cherry on top. Van Rooyen was the cherry on the cherry.

Agreed. Carlton played at their C game level, if we brought our A game would have been 6+ goals. Melbourne brought us down to their level.

Impossible. not with Steven May down there owning you guys. He wouldn't have allowed it. In tennis terms, we lost on our racquet but happy for the blues fans to say they made a prelim. but they'll be 5th/6th favourites going into next season.

Please , don't go for the Blues. You have no idea about our team , and you're nothing but a pessimistic twat. Take your support elsewhere . Please

Do you think the Dees played a better game against Collingwood or Carlton? Just curious.

Kicked a lot less behinds against Collingwood. Plus 3 of those 8 were rushed behinds so it wasn’t an issue of inaccuracy in that match but more so that some of the behinds were rushed.

Against Carlton 15 behinds. 2 of those rushed. Almost double the amount of behinds with less rushed behinds.

yeah the genes, such a masterful stroke of genius by pies recruiters. No luck involved at all.
Mate Collingwood beat you, and we beat you twice in 5 weeks. You aren't that good. Stop making excuses. You suck, and your team are soft.

Cheap shot kings and laid down last week when Maynard cleaned up Brayshaw, then laid down down against us at the end when the ball was there to be won.

Accept it and move on

This is going to be a fun week. Carlton fans all bathing in the same giant communal bath and gulping up the water. Truly some eyes wide shut stuff going on. Love to see it.
Mate we have nothing to lose, you are the one with eyes wide shut. We have a punchers chance next week. We lose, who cares everyone is still happy. You guys lose? Oh s**t thats a disaster. Good luck

Reported that they were seething about the Maynard decision yet have their own cheap shot kings hitting left, right and centre. Hypocrites if I ever seen it.

Pretty close. The misses against Collingwood were worse but we played against better opposition. There were more misses against the blues but there weren't any howlers like there were against Collingwood. hitting the post a few times, 2 goal reviews touched on the line, umpiring decisions not going our way. So I'd say we played worse against Collingwood.

last time, you needed a goal umpire to make a mistake to win. last night you needed us to kick 17 behinds. You got lucky. Obviously.

The Pickett one wasn't a cheap shot. He hit Cripps in the shoulder. Cripps head then whiplashed onto his shoulder which was just unlucky. The punch was just soft.
