Recommended Posts




6. Vince. Played a massive midfield role AND kicked 3 goals.

5. Gawn. Another stellar ruck performance plus 2 goals and some key defensive marks.

4. Viney. An absolute bull who also flies the flag for his team-mates.

3. Tyson. His first really good game this year. 31 possessions and 2 goals

2. McDonald. Held down defense exceptionally. His disposal is the only thing stopping him from being elite.

1. Garlett. The best forward on the ground all night.

Gawn. Dominated and clearly BOG for mine.

Vince . Tough when it matted and kicking goals from the midfield

Viney. Wow he is a machine 

Garlett. Had a big impact either kicking or creating goals

Tyson. He makes a difference to the team when he is on

Watts. He is becoming very consistent and on track for a great year

6 - Viney - just dominated at ground level and 3rd efforts amazing. 

5 - Gawn - our second most important player. 

4 - Tyson - best game at the Dee's and set the tone early. 

3 - Vince - missed you. 

2 - Garlett - missed you more. 

1 - Watts - you are a star in the making.

6 - Gawn (supreme)

5 - Viney (dominant - he is a beast)

4 - Tyson (best game for the year)

3 - Vince (stepped up when we needed him to)

2 - Kent (ran hard all day and he's in good form)

1 - Garlett (played an excellent small forward's game)

 

Others who played well ... basically everyone else.  Like last week, we didn't have a poor player (IMO)

For 3 weeks in a row, we haven't got an obvious candidate to be dropped (Stretch was dropped after the North game but he didn't play a poor game in that match)  Some of our players who didn't figure well in the stats still played their part.

So in essence it was a great team effort with some absolute standout performances (Gawn, Viney & Tyson) I could have easily given Watts, McDonald & Jones votes and it was a toss-up between Viney & Gawn for the 6 votes.

The top two were magnificent tonight. No other word for it.

Hard to fathom giving T Mac a vote with his turnovers, but the rest of his game is so unbelievably good. He toys with you as a supporter.

6 Gawn - Set the win up with an amazing first half, before tiring a little in the second and he got done over a bit by umps again.

5 Viney - Originally was having trouble with Townsend's hard tag, but then willed himself and the team to the win in he second half.

4 Tyson - What a game by him. How many times was he caught with it this week - I think only one. And his kicking was the best it's been.

3 Vince - Sometimes you forget what a great kick he is and then you watch his left foot snap for his first and realise he's got skill and hardness covered.

2 T-Mac - Rance is the best defender in the league (and after tonight quite a few other things), but T-Mac isn't far behind him. And only one clanger kick for the night when the game was all over.

1 Kent - how many hard chases, how many unselfish hand offs before he finally snagged one himself in the last. By far his most complete game yet.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
