GAMEDAY - Round 13



Recommended Posts

It's a big day for the sport today with Essendon taking the field for the first time since the issue of the SHOW-CAUSE notices on top of last night's results which mean that the Bombers will be in the top eight at the end of the round if they win.

I imagine that there are many Bomber fans not happy with the course of the latest events re the ASADA investigation and it might be good policy for supporters to treat them with caution and respect.

After all, if we lose today, our players are likely to be served with SNOW-CAUSE notices and you know how we would react to that sort of a ribbing. :)

Good advice, if we are winning may refrain from yelling

"your no good off the juice, you dirty cheats"

As tempting as it is, self safety must come first.

I think they will come out firing but be mentally weak. If we can get on top their wheels may fall off. Last years 145 point loss is still very painful to me so I am really hoping we smash them.

The Essendon supporters that I know can be downright scary at the best of times - as well as arrogant , delusional and smug.

I really hope we smash them today - I won't be there as I am in beautiful Daylesford.

Those going - be careful. I have been verbally and almost physically abused at Richmond station a few years ago by disgruntled, angry, possibly brain dead opposition supporters. I was standing on my own, minding my own business but my only sin(in their eyes) was my Melbourne scarf and the fact we had beaten them.

I have never caught the train since to the footy.

Go Dees

Gee that's sad Jane. I hate it when the actions of selfish [censored] cause people to change what they happily and lawfully are entitled to do.

Very winnable game, work has me in Melbourne for a couple of weeks so I'm able to attend the pies/bombers/North games.

My mate who is a pies supporter says that nearly every game is a blockbuster of sorts for his team because teams prime themselves for a big one when playing them. Clubs like us, the dogs, North and the saints do this because it's likely to the biggest crowd they will play in front off if we fail to make the finals. I like what Roos has done with changing the players mindset so that the players believe that every game is a winnable game. In years gone by interstate games were lost before boarding the plane, clubs celebrating someone's milestone or a club playing after a coaches sacking or the passing of a club great were a danger game (I know.....ten years of hell every game was a danger game). As we strive to become a dominant club we must accept that every club is a danger game but also a winnable one, not sit back at the start of the year and earmark certain games as winnable and the rest as automatic losses. Had we been playing like we are now from the start of the year we may well have another 2-3 wins. Yes the bombers will come out fighting but we shouldn't be viewing this any differently to any other game. Stick to our process, stick to our structures and do what we have trained to do. I think clubs that do this will be better served in the long run then clubs that come out full of hot air for the 1st qtr and a bit.

Yes it is sad because it's always been the easiest way for me to get to the footy. Nowdays I drive or catch a lift with someone else. It was on Queens Birthday - the last time we beat Collingwood. They were total morons and to be honest I am tall, fit and have practiced martial art and participated in numerous self defence courses. But who knows if they had a knife ... Complete cowards but it did frighten the hell out of me.

You just cannot predict what is going through opposition supporters heads. I don't trust any of them.

I've been to literally about 500 games and I don't recall ever seeing a woman get verbally/physically indimidated

Don't let that one bad experience taint your experience forever, odds are very much in your favour of it never happening again!

Well for the 1st time in ages actually since they trounced us last year im missing my first melbourne game at the G. But geez I hope we shut them out early because if they start well there fans will be loud and give them a lift.

I just hope we win. Dont care by how much but we have to be move up that ladder. It would be great to jump richmond and the dogs.

If we win by about 80 points we'll jump Carlton also and be 12th :D

Really excited for today's game. A big chance to jump up the ladder to 13th or a loss will see us drop down behind GWS to 16th, not huge in the context of things but a win like this just gets the club a bit of reward for effort to go to 13th on the ladder n jump up above the doggies & Richmond!!! C'mon dees

Wasn't Nathan Jones's father beaten up by the magpie thugs after a draw with us some years ago ?

According to SEN Fletcher is out today

He is still waiting for his infraction notice via telegram. He has had this portable phone thingy beeping off its head the last couple of days but he can't figure it out.

After a QB game, yes. Don't remember which one. Nathan's younger brother was with his father at the time too.

    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
