GAMEDAY - Round 23


Whispering_Jack

Recommended Posts

North Melbourne has indicated its contempt for our team by resting five players for the finals. This is the first time in many years that I won't be going to a final round game in my home state. Won't even be watching it on television.

I have something else on but my message to the AFL is that if you don't treat equalisation more seriously and do nothing other than support the stronger clubs then you will end up with fixtures that attract neither crowds nor viewers.

I don't see our challenge to win today as being much different to Richmond's against the Swans.

The opposition really have nothing to play for. The result won't change where they finish on the ladder. There will be an element of self- preservation involved among some of the players who won't want to get injured and miss finals games .

The answer is to hit them hard, tackle them, pressure them and let them know that they're in for a tight physical contest.

This might be a departure from the way they've been playing lately but it's the last game of the season and they need to make a statement for their fans and for themselves.

i'm genuinely excited about tonite's game, Jamar should have a party in his 150th with no Goldstien, Someone could snag 4 sausages with no Furrito maybe even Watts,North forward line doesn't seem to have enough goals in it to bury us. Warming up the vocals for a little singsong tonite.

Not to be too negative about our chances but let's look at our last 4 games before we start declaring this as a cert.
We have received three genuine thrashings (Hawthorn, Eagles and GW BLOODY S!) and would have been thrashed by the Lions had their skills not been as woeful as ours for 3 and a half quarters.

We are deluding ourselves if we don't think that North aren't in a position to do that again. Our expectations as supporters are that the best we can expect is the team to give a yelp at least. The group should always be aiming to win but some expectations of the support group, as witnessed here, are way off the mark.
I still have a sly chuckle to myself when I read all those posts proclaiming that we should get excited if we knock off North or Hawthorn but beating GWS or Brissy was no big deal. It would appear we are still a way of beating those two teams as it is!

I bet you thought the same thing when we played the GWS reserve team a couple of weeks ago.

I hope you're right but we are just that bad.

Yes i did, & when we played Sydney, Port, Crows, Essendon & Doggies, didn't have the feeling when we beat Blues & Tiges thou.

where are Norths goals going to come from? Drew Petrie? He's not really Mr reliable. Look, we probably won't win...but at the moment I can't see us getting thrashed by 60+ points with the outs that they have. Hence why I was shocked when i saw most of the tips here: http://resources.news.com.au/files/521/227/cb43e256-2f07-11e4-aafa-2c4cfd90ea1d..pdf

Look at Norths forward line coming into this game. Probably worse than ours...

then it ought to provide an abject lesson in how you conjure something out of nothing...something our lot is too timid to

I am with you. No Harvey is a bonus. I reckon Michie will kick 4.

Just get it over. 2014 in some ways has been far worse than the 2 previous years.

The excuses we heard before were just that.

The "problems" were addressed. & still the players have shown little respect for the jumper and members.

Since Round 13 it has been diabolical. Kicking 3-4 goals in a full game on a dry ground.

Fcuk That.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    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.
