I know it's unlikely but if we manage to beat West Coast this week I really believe that finals this year aren't completely out of the question.

IF we somehow win this one, we then have Bombers, Lions, Saints all at the mighty MCG. Deadset chance to be sitting on 8 wins 8 losses and 5 consecutive wins. Some say it's dreaming but if you look at the facts it is seriously on the cards. Having said that, our final six games are tougher and we would have to win 4 of them at least... but if we did get into that position where we are 8-8, anything could happen

I've said yes to the poll - mainly because I think as a club we're finally headed in the right direction.... No instability and everyone should be on the same page moving forward as a club

If we can keep Howe and Garland in the off season, top us with some classy kids again we really should be pushing for Finals in 2016

As for the next 4-5 games, C&B I would love you to right - WCE in Darwin is a bit of an ask... and Ess on the rebound from Darwin with the Bombers being the underdog for once might be a big ask.

My rational side is saying don't get ahead of ourselves as there will still be some a few more disappointment to come this year - but hell to rational, 8 - 8 would be an awesome we should be aiming for - Bring it on Dees! Get on board!!

All of our wins this year have resulted in, "How good is out list" or "Our good is X player" threads, only for the following week to lean into, "Where did it all go wrong" and "We still have a long way to go" threads.

Finals are a possibility this year. We *can* make it if we play consistently good football of the ilk that we saw last weekend.

Ultimately, the team still hasn't managed to play consistently good football for longer than a week.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    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.
