Thanks Magpiebat for the seasons updates. Being in Thailand it helps me stayed connected. If you are ever in Pattaya give me a pm and I will s shout you a beer of choice, a Ton Yung and a guided tour of a wherever takes your fancy.

On the game and whilst the Dogs were playing for a spot in Sydney it seems some of our blokes were playing for exit interviews and cleanout of the locker on Tuesday.


that last part of the statement might be correct for the last quarter. don't forget the footscray vfl team has been travelling well in the last few years. this was our guys first vfl prelim and i think that was telling. we struggled to get control of the play and when we did it was for long enough. we also spent a bit of time simply giving thhr ball back with some terrible turnovers; the intent was there but execution, or lack of, got us. it took us time to get close to clawing our way back and when we did they just piled on quick goals.

it didn't go our way yesterday but no one goes out there to receive a shellacking of that magnitude. this has been the vfl's best season for some time. if we can build on this it can only help the afl side with achieving success.

Disappointing pies......

I didn't see any of the game due to other commitments - how did my boy Hannan play?? (Sorry to be asking about an opposition player.....)

We really lacked Tony Armstrong's run and accurate passing.

After Kelly got flattened they looked like they were playing scared. Fumbling and not taking the game on as they should have. It all went down hill from there very quickly.

Request denied. Because it would rob me of the pleasure of doing it myself.

I must say, the more I think about it, the more angrier I get. To allow yourself to be beaten by 20 goals in any game, let alone a preliminary final, is a disgrace. Some players must surely have played their last game for Collingwood after that pathetic performance.

Belatedly, I'd like to offer a few thanks of my own.

Firstly, thanks to mattys123, who runs that VFL Pies Twitter account like a Swiss watch and who always is up for a yarn about our 2nds team, here and elsewhere (he also had a pretty good season across half back and occasionally in the midfield as well... Wink ). Thanks to 1892_, who has a sharper eye for detail and observation than I do at times and likewise always is eager for a chat about these games as a fellow VFL Magpies nerd (in particular, 1892_ made a massive effort to put together our list of eligible AFL players and complete lists for all of our opponents for handy reference). Thanks to Dave The Man, whose passion for all things black and white makes even Eddie McGuire look like a casual. A big thanks to my fellow mods for indulging these threads and the OPs they stem from, here and over in the VFL section.

And a broad, collective thank you to all of you here who made a genuine effort to engage in good faith and stay informed on (and care about) how this little VFL outfit of ours has traveled over this roller coaster 2016 season, one which has been our most successful to date as a VFL subsidiary (Saturday's monstrosity of a game notwithstanding). One which, after the debacles against Casey and Essendon and Sandringham in the first 5 weeks, the men in white coats would have locked you up for predicting would unfold the way it did from Rounds 6 through to the Qualifying Final. And as 2016 descended into yet another failed year for the seniors, the unlikely journey of this VFL team gave us something to smile about and reason to be hopeful for the future.

It was, truly, a Hell of a ride.

Finally, a big thank you to everyone involved with this team within the walls of the club itself, from the coaches to the players on both lists to the staff to the volunteers (and yes, even you, John Wren Smile ). You all have every reason to be proud of what you accomplished this year, despite how it all came unraveled in the end.

And on that melancholy note, a special parting thank you to Brent Macaffer and Alan Toovey, two of the immortals of 2010 who both contributed most substantively to the VFL team's fortunes this year, without complaint and with every last drop of petrol they had. Fellas, this little Cinderella story of a VFL flag wasn't meant to be. Alas, the clock struck twelve at quarter time and both glass slippers shattered (shards embedded, ligaments severed, blood hemorrhaging, might be right for next week but Blackmores will have to wait and see). But boys, you were warriors. And you will always be heroes.

And with that... well... it's over to you...

I stand corrected

I saw both live at the ground. Quelle horreur!!!


You're clearly the common denominator! You should be ashamed of yourself!
