Sydney V GWS

Hard to see this game with the stadium half in sun and shade.

When in the sun the colours are hard to pick ..... the AFL need to have a think about their product !!

It is surprising that in 2016 TV technology can't cope with sharp contrasts 

And of course the AFL in their infinite wisdom could never force their favorite children to wear crap white, or other alternate strips in their first final

He'll get 2, poor record I'd think DT.

Yup, usual SJ, going to far and it will cost him.

Kennedy back on, very scrappy game now. GWS look like the much better team but can't find a fwd inside 50 this qtr.

Stevie J certainly deserves at least 2 for that dog act, especially given his history, but given his importance to the AFL love child club he will no doubt be free to play

It is just wrong, in the interests of player safety, that Stevie J can in effect head charge into an opponent's midriff and be rewarded with a goal.

This needs to be discouraged, not encouraged. 

Someone WILL break their neck one day.  Only then will the usual AFL knee jerk response come into effect. 

And another just before half time

So dangerous yet not discouraged in any way.

Yes but they have to face what all successful teams face, how to keep them all well paid and happy

In the context of three years the irony is that they can stay around on lower salaries , rack up a premiership medal and then still have 3-5 years at another club on top dollar.

Or GWS can do another Treloar... trade one or two for another pick in the top 5.

Has to get one game, as he ran past the ball and took Kennedy out with what I thought was an elbow to the head. It was intentional and high contact and at least medium impact. He will get at least a week.

And to think.... GWS will improve over the next 3-5 years !!

Johnson, Patfull, Shaw and Mumford are all over 30 and all played at least 20 games this year. 

If they can cope with their loss (especially Mumford) then yeah I agree with you.

Swannies only 2 points down at the half but with it all to do. Mills hammy, Tippet and Kennedy not 100% after a couple of head knocks each, GWS with so much pace. If they can hit a fwd target it will be a big win for them.

Basil Zemplis (?) looks like a giant goose come to life.

Plenty of tradeable assets to fill those holes, let alone development within the franchise.

Maybe they'll draft Harvey to replace them? He's probably good for another 400 games!

This match will end up as close as last night. Right down to the wire!

    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

    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
