GAME DAY - Round 7



Recommended Posts

I don't think those words would have any affect on Clarkson or the players.

Although Clarkson may use it against us in his pre match talk.

Why do our guys open their big mouths. Talk is cheap.

I would imagine that every game both teams think they can win so (yes even the Dees players otherwise why put yourself in harms way) it would be of little surprise for the Hawks to hear that Dawes thinks they are ripe for plucking. Hardly fighting words. I can also imagine that if we are getting beaten the Hawks players will get into him. He will probably belt them.

I am not normally delusional but want to be today so I am going to put $100 on the boys. Now if somebody could tell me how to here. When we win, its long island ice teas for the rest of the weekend at Raffles. If by some perverse quirk of fate the Dees don't get up then its long island iced teas for the rest of the weekend at Raffles.

You may as well just set that $100 on fire and be done with it. There is blind faith.. and then there is Hawthorn. No other team across the last 7-8 years has smashed us like the Hawks have. I don't see it changing today.

Absolute snow flakes chance in hell we win this game. Just look at our record against them the last 8 years or so.. We'll do well to get within 10 goals. Just like last week facing sydney last week at the wrong time after the dogs loss, no way hawthorn will drop another game like they did to GWS last week. We can just hope for a competitive effort (depressing we are still at this stage of development)

I really wish that I could believe what Chris Dawes said this week about coming up against the Hawks and his personal battle with Chip but really ...

What would you have preferred him say? " I think we will get beaten?"

Lots of negativity on this site at the moment,

Look at the positive

1. Hawks aren't playing well

2. No Lewis and Mitchell or McEvoy

3. No Watts

4. Hogan, Brayshaw, Stretch.

5. And Chunk!!!!!

I think it will be closer than you may think

I love how people quote the form of 6-8 years. Our form line against most sides over that time would look similar. We are on the way to not being the same team. That guy buddy no longer plays there, their two best this year in Hodge and Lewis are out and they have brought in two players underdone. Things are not the same. I do not expect to win but give us a sneaky chance and anything more than a 4-5 goal loss would be unacceptable. I am hoping we hit hard at the contest and spread hard away from it. Be aggressive and creative going forward even if it means some frustrating clangers. Do this and we will give ourselves a shake.

I rate Hawthorn's attack higher than Freo and Sydney so I agree that this could get ugly. I'm setting realistic expectations - I can't see us doing any better than last week against Sydney. I'll be vacating this thread shortly before kick off.

Would be good to see Hogan take a few contested grabs on Frawley just to rub it in. Wouldn't mind if Brayshaw was in the conversation for a rising star nomination. Looking forward to seeing Stretch again too. I'm mentally preparing to grimace every time Matt Jones or Rohan Bail get a touch. Would love either one to prove me wrong.

I am realistic about the result however, I want to see some passion effort and leadership from our senior players. Dawes, Dunn, Grimes, Howe, and Lumumba. Some others who are playing for their careers include M Jones, and Bail.

Actually it's time we stopped getting flogged by the Hawks!! It's time this club puts in a close competitive game against this mob.

Feeling good about the game and looking forward to the mids shutdown game.

Backline is still coming together quite well and without expecting a win,still hoping to see if 4 quarters of PR footy can be put on show today.

So,option are?

Pedders?

Max?

I liked Dawes comments. Not something we have heard from the team very often in recent years.

It is important we play with aggression to back him up.

After comments like that, losing is Ok but rolling over is not.

Hawks 9 x 100+ games (5 over 200) and 5 x <50 games

Dees 8 x 100+ games (2 over 200) and 10 x <50 games

Even without Hodge and Lewis they have loads more experience.

Its more than games played for me, most of their players have elite/above average disposal.

Had a dream last night that we belted Hawthorn by 84 points. Lumumba kicked 6 goals and Spencer kicked 5. We got this!...maybe...yeah alright, probably not.

    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
