We’ve only had 2 x 100 point victories this millennium. 
Both against Carlton. 

First in the naughties 

Second in the teens 

Get the twenties locked in. 

Telling stat. Really surprised.  And we have had some talented forwards in these years. With our fwd line depleted by injuries, form and experiments, it's remarkable the 100 plus ones this year. As much as I would love a ff kicking 4 a week, it's good we have such a spread of players hitting the board.

Have we ever played Port on a Friday night?

Yes, twice. 

Our first ever game against them was a Friday night. We lost at Football Park by 51. 

More recently we had a Friday night in 2018, in Adelaide. We lost by 10 despite leading at three quarter time.

We've lost our last 2 last quarters since this article was published. We need to break that embarrassing record.

We are the current league record-holders of the lowest percentage at the end of the season since 1966 (leaving aside the disintegrating shell of Fitzroy and the start of the GWS and GC franchises), with 54.1 in our reverse-stellar year of 2013.

I note that the Eagles currently are at 51.4 and will have the job in front of them to not take this particular unwanted crown from us.

They’ll be in the 40s by years end the way they’re going.

This is a record we have to wait for someone else to break, but we have the worst losing streak at any venue this century with 22 at Marvel stadium between 2008-2015. It's also the worst losing streak in the AFL era.

We'll be waiting a while for someone else to take the 21st century mantle, too. The contenders are Adelaide and Brisbane at Kardinia Park (13), Brisbane with 12 at the MCG, and St Kilda (11) also at Kardinia Park.

This seems a bit odd given they won their most recent game at the G prior to last week - obviously that was a final but why exclude it from the analysis?

We’ve slipped down a spot. 

 

The sub-record to this, which I suspect we'll never lose, is our #1 position, of the above top (bottom?) 7, in 'Degree Of Mercury' in the 'bookend' years: St Kilda bookended all its 3 years with spoons; Hawthorn almost did, with a spoon and a 2nd last (to us, 3 years after a premiership...); Fitzroy did even better, spooning then 'disappearing'; GWS spooned but scrabbled up to 3rd last; and WC, well...

We, on the other hand, bookended with an albeit very modest 14th but then a spectacular Prelim and 4th.

In two weeks West Coast play Brisbane at the Gabba. 186 could well fall 👌

The lions will have a training run. May even manage a few key players.  I cant see 190 & 186 points (Fitzroy)ever being passed.

Looks like we're stuck with it.

    PREGAME: Rd 16 vs Brisbane

    The Demons head back on the road for their fifth interstate trip this season when they head up to Brisbane to take on the Lions under lights on Friday night at the Gabba. Who comes in and who goes out?

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
