POST MATCH DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

Glad I couldn't watch it, as the combination of bias umpiring, Brent Harvey kicking 6 and North winning a close one would have pushed me over the [censored] edge. 

Sounds like a decent effort at least after last week. But again why did we let them kick 8 in a row? It's [censored] like that we need to eradicate out of our DNA so that we can stop chasing impossible wins.

Showed good grit to get back into it and but held out my a more mature and experienced side. We were spent in the last and with that went the run and execution. The frustration now is when we are on with the inside and outside balance we are breathtaking to watch but we fall into old way too quickly. Take that effort and style in and you win most weeks.

Was just unfair.  The umpires gifted North the game.

I [censored] hate that team and their pathetic cry baby coach.  Bunch of pretenders

I'm really looking forward to the day they completely drop off a cliff and fall back to the bottom.

Have the oldest list and are not likely to win the flag.

Well said. Umpires went blind when we were due for free kicks. Very proud of the boys. Go Dees

Overall free kicks even.

but the decision not to pay the mark to Harmes at the end was a disaster, compounded by the absurd free to Goldstein in the second quarter. It's not the number of frees but where u get them

Fancy letting that little runt get 6.0. You'd be hard press to find an easier 6 goals. 

Hate to say it but we should have had all the run in the last and to have fewer rotations available was yet another major coaching error. We were getting smashed in the last and that should have been expected given North's experience. The game was ultimately lost in that 10-minute window, half-way through the last, while we were trying to slow down our rotations to stretch them out. They had more run and it showed.

Also, Dunn is finished. I am so sick of him and Garland dumbing up our team so damn much. You have a game there to be won and you look sideways. Astonishing. Just a dumb footballer. Can't wait until the final weeds of the Daniher and Bailey eras are pulled out of this club. Massive liability down back, once again. That mis-timed jump as Boomer and two other North players fell behind was just astonishing. Should have stayed grounded. 10-year experienced player making a rookie mistake.

Anyone know how many goals they got from frees? Be interesting to know

1000. 

 

Also the amount of times I'd have watched this game if we won. 

 

I'm so angry. 

 

Also would more funds fix this site / get a new one? I'll chuck in, this site is a lemon.

Jaded effort at the contest in first was pretty good but we turned it over and they killed us on the outside and were kicking with a big wind. Cant say I was happy at quarter time but the score made it look worse than the application.

LOL loss 16 against a mob of pretenders, and some are trying to blame it on the umpires.............. again............

MFC have WAY too many supporters who are too easy to please.

Glad the sugar-coaters fund this chit. Means i can keep saving the money i would have spent on membership for stuff i actually enjoy.

This was a statement game believe it or not. Makes me laugh.

Or not.

Geez, the umpires better be careful. Gave us a rough run in rnd 1, we're appalling and had real impact in rnd 3...

One thing you couldn't wish on anyone is the pent-up rage of 1000 years of Demon frustration suddenly turning to you and holding you responsible!

Meanwhile, some congratulations are in order -

Jazk Ziebell, 19 tackles, equalling Jude Bolton's all-time record.

Max Gawn 63 hitouts, equal 4th of all time.

Brent Harvey (you utter, utter, jammy bstrd) outright career-high goals. Should we take comfort that we were beaten by a once-in-412-games achievement?

Gawn monstered Goldy in the ruck, but Goldy did the job around the ground, including a couple of soft goals from frees. What a battle, 172 SuperCoach points each.

    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

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
