Post match Discussion "Fire away"


Recommended Posts

I'm getting in first. This is the worst defeat in ten years ! Worse even than the demolition job the Cats did on us At Skilled Stadium in the Bailey years.

We were and are  PUTRID! Too many players far too easily pleased! Chuffed we were about last week! Yeah that was our equivalent of winning a Premiership!

Let this sink in! We lost to a team of Top ups! What a absolute disgrace we are, Can we possibly get some players that actually will Bleed for the jumper!??

Poor coaching and poor selections contribute. You reap what yiou sow! The embarrasment I feel is is palpable!

What the heck is going on with Jesse Hogan? lazy, sooky, not leading, he is not even close to the player he was last year.

I don't even know what to say about that performance.  I really thought the players would see it as a terrific opportunity to smash a team and go 2-0 to start the season.

And we serve up rubbish.  I'm laying the blame solely at the feet of the players today.  They didn't run hard, no appetite for the contest and allowed them to do as they pleased.  I continually thought the players would take some responsibility at each break and look to make amends.  We did so briefly in the last... and then we fell over and completely lost the plot.  

I'm positive at the best of times but I can't take anything out of that game.  Nothing.  Maybe Kennedy was a positive.  Vince and Jones had a dip.  But outside of that the only word that comes to mind was 'putrid'.

BenKen was the only guy I saw that put in a 4 quarter effort.

They chipped the ball all day and we did nothing to stop it.

Ross' inability to change the gameplan.

Forward delivery was bomb it long to Hogan and pray, even though he was double/triple teamed.

Disgraceful disposals and turnovers. Kicking for goal wasnt much better.

We had guys jogging when the game was on the line. Its the 2nd round.

Could go on forever. A embarrassing loss to say the least.

Most if not all of their goals came from our turnovers..... let that sink in.

According to the AFL match feed:

All of Essendon's goals have come from intercept possessions in this match.

Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    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

    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
