Post Match Discussion - Round 5

Recommended Posts

Fro have made a lot of good teams look dreadful this season.

Every team they have played this season have been losing by 50 points by the first quarter then they Fought back in the last because Fro had switched off.

We made Fro play hard for 3 quarters instead of one like everyone else has.

Fro at a serious contender this season wear we are 12th at best.

I think the boys can hang there heads high after that performance considering were we have come from.

Just wondering if you agree or disagree with the captain? Or is he making a 'garbage' comment?

“It was really embarrassing, we were pretty disgusted with the result, particularly that last 20 minutes of the game,” Jones said.

“It was obviously really disappointing.”

“One of the real keys with Roosey is team first, and as the game unfolded on the weekend we saw guys put their own individual goals and decisions above of the team,” he said.

Wow, you really must not have much going for you in life if you have time to write up a come back like this!

Good work, You really showed me.

But thing is I don't give a [censored]!!

JKH was a positive from Sunday for mine. Hadn't noticed him much priorly this year, but won some meaningful possessions in the middle. I think he has the potential to be a good ball winner rather than your typical small forward

wow

I thought it was interesting that Freo had 12 players who played last Sunday that also played in 2011 when we beat them by 89 points. Just goes to show that if you can build around that core group you can turn it around relatively quickly.

Yep. It's about so much more than just personnel.

Ross Lyon is a pretty handy coach, having the best player in the comp probably doesn't hurt either

Just watched the replay.

Cannot believe how badly Watts played. We would have been better with a witches hat. How he gets a game this week is beyond me.

Mitchie did SFA. Jamar had no impact around the ground. At the game I thought he battled pretty well but on review he was outclassed.

Pederson did nothing. Grimes was largely on Mayne.

The amount of space and time we gave to Mundy and Fyffe is simply unacceptable.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again headlining another blockbuster at the MCG to kick off the round of footy. The Dees take on the Blues and have the opportunity to win their third game on the trot to solidify a spot in the Top 4 in addition to handing the Blues their third consecutive defeat to bundle them out of the Top 8.
