Port vs Sydney at 1:15pm on a Saturday, so basically anyone that has any commitment to any local or regional A or B grade club can't go, probably the most likely bracket to want to go.

The AFL continue to put TV requests ahead of the loyal fans and then wonder why attendances aren't better.

Port play Richmond in the June long weekend in Melbourne - if that had been slotted in for Friday night then many Port fans would have flown over to Melbourne on the Friday, gone to Port that night and then take in Ess/Carlton on the Saturday night and boosted the Vic economy and airline profits for that long weekend. But no - with only 6 games scheduled for the long weekend, TV wants a game on a Thursday night. So Port get shifted there, Ess/Carlton goes to Friday night and there is no game in the city of Melbourne on the Saturday of a long weekend...


And in totally unrelated news you cant get a chalet at Mount Buller 11-13/6 for love nor money....
Let that be a lesson to you Port, no one beats the Bays five times in a row in a GF and gets away with it!!!

MELBOURNE Football Club will rebrand itself as Narrm Football Club for the 2022 AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round and AFLW Indigenous Round celebrations.

Narrm, the Aboriginal name for Melbourne, comes from Woi Wurrung, the language spoken by the traditional owners of the city and its surrounds.

The initiative is one of more than two years in the making, where the club worked closely with the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation to gain invaluable knowledge and permission of Narrm’s use.

Alongside celebrating and educating on Australia’s Indigenous history, the rebranding is designed to generate awareness and encourage productive conversations among the Demons’ member and supporter base.

The club will introduce a representative Narrm Football Club logo, which will take pride of place across all digital touchpoints, including website, social media and broadcast throughout the respective rounds.

The Narrm branding will then be integrated in-stadium for Melbourne’s Round 11 AFL match at the MCG, as part of Sir Doug Nicholls Round.

Melbourne CEO Gary Pert said the launch was a significant moment for the club.

“Today is an exciting day, as we announce Narrm Football Club to our members, supporters and the wider football community,” he said.

“This initiative has been a focus of our RAP Committee for the past two years and is as much about acknowledgement and education as it is celebration.

“We have a rich Indigenous club history at Melbourne, from welcoming our first Indigenous player, Eddie Jackson, in 1947, to launching our second Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan earlier this year.

“It’s exciting to be building on this and taking a step further on our own journey, while bringing our fans along with us.

“Our vision for reconciliation is, through AFL, to unite Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with non-Indigenous people, to understand and embrace history, culture and community.

“We hope with the Narrm Football Club initiative, we can continue to do just that and work towards a fully reconciled Australia.”

Narrm will first feature during AFL Round 10, when Melbourne faces North Melbourne for its away match at Marvel Stadium, before the Demons return to the MCG to host Fremantle in Round 11. The club will also take on the name of Narrm during Indigenous Round of the next AFL Women’s season.

Melbourne intends to continue this in Sir Doug Nicholls Round and AFLW Indigenous Round moving forward, beyond 2022.

Pert expressed his gratitude to those that have helped bring the initiative to life.

“I would like to thank the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation, which has been invaluable in sharing knowledge, guidance and permission,” Pert said.

“I would also like to recognise our Indigenous Projects Officer Matthew Whelan and our RAP Committee, who have been incredibly passionate and committed to ensuring this project is successful.

“We look forward to our members and supporters sharing in this journey with us and acknowledging the history of the land in which we call home.”

To celebrate the launch of Narrm, Melbourne will release a limited edition Narrm merchandise range, with all profits going towards the club’s various Indigenous programs.
PAFC. Forever.

Horne-Francis, who was finally rewarded with a Rising Star nomination this week, remonstrated twice with Blues players during North’s 50-point loss last Saturday nigh

The 18-year-old has been lauded for how he handled himself with Jack Silvagni after the Blues tall gave Horne-Francis some choice words following a late hit.

Horne-Francis confirmed most of what Silvagni yelled at him during the fiery altercation, just leaving out some expletives.

“(Silvangi) just said that we weren’t very good and I wasn’t very good,” Horne-Francis said.

“But it was a lot of heat of the moment and didn’t take anything to heart.

“It’s just in my nature, sticking up for my teammates, it’s something I love doing and I think a lot of it was just heat of the moment but that’s something that comes naturally.



I love this kid, I don't think the same of Silvagni.

And in fairness, if there’s anyone qualified in knowing what “not being very good is”, It’d be Jack Silvagni.

Question. When push came to the shove there was JHF and second gamer Curtis. Where were the senior players? Dog act all good.

Probably not the worst....if I was GWS I would be looking to appoint the next permenant coach ASAP so they could have the second half of the year to assess the list, try and start to see who fits into whatever style of play they are looking for and to build relationships before the end of season trade period etc.

So how do we rate Cameron?
Didn't win a flag but got pretty close with a list chockers full of talent.
Injuries and suspension hurt them at the wrong time.

Will he get/want another head coach position?
