He's referring to Paul Roos making excuses in last weeks presser. We already know David King hates Paul Roos.

The way he over analyzes the game is just embarrassing

The way HE analyses the game is pretty rudimentary but there needs to be more analysis in the media. At least he's having a go.

I don't mind him or it, he is never afraid to call it as it is and people sook up because they often don't like hearing the truth about their respective football clubs.

I'd like him more if he wore suits that actually fitted him

To be fair, from what I can tell 50% of the people here are blaming the umpires. So seems he was spot on. :P 

I have read a few of your posts and I think you are simply trolling.

if it has " :P " then it is usually a joke, if it does not then usually I mean what i said. Besides although i said that in jest, you have to admit there are a few that seem to be a little too conserned by the umpires on the weekend, they didnt help but they didnt cost us i dont think.

I always thought he seemed terribly anti-Melbourne too, but maybe he's just objectively a good judge - after all, we have actually been pus for the best part of a decade. Could be a good sign!

First impressions are, more often than not, correct Nasher. Over the past few years Healy has never missed an opportunity to put the boots into us when we were at our lowest. If he drove past 4 blokes kicking the poo out of someone on the ground he would turn the car around and push his way to the front of the queue if the bloke in the foetal position was the MFC. 

The only positive I take from his mild backtracking is that he can see fight in the prone body and he is trying to put some distance between him and his past behaviour.

G. Healy is a [censored]'s [censored]

Was that our ex captain you are referring to or his turn coat brother?

I'm not a huge fan of David King, but i kind of agree with him, some of the things i hate most about listening to Roosy speak are the willingness to shift the blame, the players are mentally scarred, the fans are mentally scarred, victim mentality, losing mentality is ingrained, 

having said that he would have looked like a tool if we'd managed to snag one more goal and got over the line.

I gather he would have sent this around qtr time? He would have been framing up the week ahead, at the same time supporting his own argument about the Roos-Goodwin handover.  

Rest assured he'll put this on the back burner for another week, waiting for a performance to support his claims.

I think you are 100% correct.

The free kick against Gawn in the middle to Goldstein was one of the worst for the day for me.

I've seen two shockers in the first quarter.. Viney gets absolutely smashed, clear free kick and Kent comes in to get into Firrito about it, pushes him in the chest, he falls over, and the free is reversed.. even Firrito looked like he couldn't believe it.

Re-watching the game, still feel the same way about the umpiring.

 

absolutely rubbish, bordering on cheating.

If North copped what we did on Sunday, Scott would have gone through the glass in the Coaches box and then dump on the umpires in his Press Conference.

We remained very quiet on the issue.

Wait until you get to the Goldstein free in the ruck, 20 out, when he is behind Gawn and puts his hands on Gawn's neck and back. The commentators were dumbfounded, as was our Captain. Take just that free back and we win.

I've always wondered what happens there, can the club put in a complaint or something? the game was clearly decided by poor umpiring decisions.

They generally take it up with the Umpires' boss on a monday review and if they are lucky get an apology for all the wrong decisions.

Fat lot of good it does.

Could you imagine if we were one of the big boys, it would have been headline news.

He was even smart enough to give Ringwood Nissan a plug. If memory serves me correct it's definitely not the first time he's done this in the media for Nissan. Must have got a great deal for himself.

edit:

Funny that. Out of curiosity I looked up King's Twitter feed and found this...: -

Pumped to be on board as a Ringwood Nissan ambassador. Always terrific to be associated with marvellous people. Great wheels!

Yes RL I looked at that one a number of times and still cant work it out. Was is for blocking or something? There aren't that many rules in the game I can think of that penalize the man in front. Totally absurd decision.

It was for gawn holding his jumper at the front. At least thats what we deciphered from where we were sitting. I think he was just conserned it had been too long since he had blown his whistle

As I understand it, this was tweeted during the first quarter. 

Then that shows what an ignorant DH he must be. Dees kicking against an 8 goal wind.

    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
