I reckon we just play him in the forward line. He is hard to match up on because of his height he can jump and he is a great mark. Mitch needs help and we need more goals kicked.

Even if its just kicked in high he can at least bring it down to the ground for the small forwards.

Play him one out.

Easier said than done.

Opposition teams still do their homework on our players and watch how closely 2 or 3 players block his run at the marking opportunity.

This has happened to Jack Watts in his first two games - he has been tagged heavily to stop his delivery.

Play the Role Russell Robinson did well for all those years.

Russell who?

He's a different beast to Robertson anyway. He's a much better runner and works defensively, but he's a poorer shot for goal. I still support the idea of him rotating between midfield and forward to keep the opposition on their toes.

Agree 'Nasher', and he is a great let out kick for the defence.

His mark today was one of the best I've seen. It won't be rated that highly because the camera doesn't explain the difficulty, but it was extraordinary.

Running at pace, the wrong way, he leaps on his opponents shoulders to take the mark. Amazing. He was hopelessly out of position to beat his opponent. I've never seen a mark of this type in 40 years.

Thankfully it was "right in front of me".

Agree mate, it was an amazing mark. One of the best I've seen, usually they come from behind and get a ride but he came from in front, turned and jumped on his opponents shoulders without the lift.

He was loose man in defense in the second half. A bad decision by neeld.

I hate the spare man in defense, it just means the opposition is able to link up with a free man all over the ground and we just keep chasing tail. Always out numbered when we go into attack, a stupid idea, man up, i.e. one of our team on one of the opposition team... and stay will them.

My guess? He has licence to go where ever. Reckon he went back half to help out. Same as Clark.

Ed: spelling

It reminded me of Adem Yze actually. Used to do that all the time in his heyday.

I was screaming in the second before he took that grab, 'Get back, get back, oh f***, you've f***ed it up - ... wow'.

Don't agree. With the ball coming into their talls the way it was, it was a way of getting someone with a bit of aerial prowess in to spoil.

But it's the old story, dammed if you do, dammed if you don't.

I thought that mark was going to be a front on contact free before he jumped. Couldn't believe my eyes, he made it look so damn easy.

And he went back and took the kick this time, bonus points.

I'm thankful for some highlights amongst crap I watch.

We needed a link up man through the middle of the ground yesterday. When Clarke moved up the ground we had no one to kick to. Howe could of played as a half forward who then kicks to Clarke. Howe is too dangerous to be the spare man and he went missing in defense.

Look at how long he was looking at the ball and not the man for. His judgement is amazing, as without even looking, he was still able to ride on the shoulders of someone he couldnt see

    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

    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
