Massive luck in a few instances got the niners going and the way cashed in. Detroit fell apart in the end. 
The Reynolds drop wide open was pretty much the end.

Chiefs will on form win back to back.

Recorded both games but followed the games on gamecast

Looks like the Lions imploded or was it just the 49ers stepping up at crunch time?

And the Ravens just couldn't score TD's despite being at or near the redzone a lot of the times.  Couldn't get it done?

Niners got what should have been an interception that turned into a 53y gain, a one handed catch across the middle that was epic but also such a bad option/attempt. 
Goff slightly missed Reynolds on a fourth down that really he prob should catch and Reynolds also missed a sitter on 3rd down, he just flat dropped it with no pressure.

Purdy suddenly became Lamar and made great plays with his legs. 
Lions should have been able to hold on/win that game but their second half was as bad as the niners got good, but either will be up against it in the SB. 
What made the niners great through the year is not working at the moment.

Great fightback. 24-7 down at half time but didn't give in, there was no way we could stop their run especially on the outside. 

We were just flat out poor in the first half. Already mentioned defending the run but completely unable to get any pressure on Goff as well. I thought the Lions were outstanding in the way they approached this game and really exploited our weakness. 

Some massive slices of luck helped get us going, the tipped ball Jennings catch and the Aiuik fluke. You need these rubs sometimes and if Purdy doesn't air it out there it doesn't happen. Then Dan Campbell's aggressive approach on 4th down. While it may have been wise to kick the FGs you have to remember its this approach that got the Lions to where they are. They weren't totally void of fortune themselves when Moody missed the field goal from 48 or Purdy couldn't get it to a wide open Jennings to start the 2nd half but that's football, take what they give you.

The bright lights kicked in and all of a sudden Gibbs fumble and the 2 Reynolds drops, the pressure was on and Detroit seemed to wince in the moment. Once they lost the lead and had to rely on pass to get it back the momentum had well and truly shifted. They will be better for it, congratulations to Detroit for getting this far.

Arguments could be made we weren't the best team on the night but I think we still deserved to win. Not thinking about the SB just yet happy to enjoy being NFC champs for the moment. Any picks for who's going to win would be extremely premature at this stage but the Chiefs have done it and know what is expected.

For the time being, go Niners!

Chiefs pass rusher Charles Omenihu tore his ACL yesterday. 7 sacks this season and was massive against the Ravens. 

Massive loss, means the pass rush on Purdy won’t be as good, they were great at creating pressure with only the front 4.

Vegas has set the SB as a virtual pick-em

49ers are at -1.5 which is close enough to a point after

I was reckoning -3.0 KC but I'm 4.5 points out

Very good player and he'll be sorely missed. Tragic for him.

Still a hell of a defense though.

I honestly think both offences should beat the opponents D, it will possibly come to special teams/turn overs. I think both teams score 24+

Yeah I think there will be points scored as well. Stops and turnovers will be worth their weight in gold. 

It's a horrible thing to think about for me but it's easy to see it coming down to a 2 min drill where #15 makes the big plays and gets them over the line. Can't win if you don't buy a ticket though.

Tbh if it’s 2 mins and you have the ball you have nearly as much chance as they do.

(I feel dirty writing that and will go for a bath full of sanitizer 😁)

@Gorgoroth @Go the Biff @DeeSpencer @titan_uranus @Clintosaurus @JV7 @Dee Zephyr @Dr. Gonzo  @DemonDave @BDA @layzie  

Tips Gentleman (and margin)

5 points for the win & 5 points for the correct margin bracket (1-6, 7-13 or 13+) 

San Francisco are -1.5 favs over KC so that's close enough to call it a pick-em

Here's the leaderboard so good luck!

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
