Still loving this Bruce-less commentary team. It's amazing what the substitution of the thoroughly unappealing Luke Darcy with the mature head of Dennis Cometti does for the Saturday night team of BT, Richo & Ling.

I'm convinced that whole Saturday night commentary performance is all a deliberate act by Channel Seven.

That comparison has been made many times.

On a side note, who is the last decent South Australian we have recruited besides Stretch or Trengove?

Rivers?

Vince and Rivers are/were handy.

A tug of the arm I think. I actually rewinded it to come up with SOMETHING to justify it.

The umpire is used to thinking big players losing contests to small players is so rare that it must be a jumper tug or hand obstruction. Nah it's just an American player

Why is it that you can bump a bloke in the head when running backwards for a mark (which you entirely miss) and not be penalized just because you had your eyes on the ball? Sure Varcoe was brave, but there are lots of other situations where a player is looking at the ball and gives away a free for high contact.    And lots of frees for front on contact when both players are going for the ball. But if you are brave it somehow forgives the infringement.

The only good thing about watching this match is realising how much better then both of them we are.

And on another topic i just noticed Howe taking a kick out. First i've noticed him all night!

Sue have to totally disagree, the game then is netball. One of the beauties of our game is players coming from all angles with there eyes on the ball.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
