AFL Finals Week 1 - 2016

There's nothing you can't love about watching West Coast play awfully on their own home ground. It's a lot harder when the umpires don't gift you the game.

Amazing that the Dogs have done so well with Stringer having absolutely no impact (until that goal) and the Bont quiet for more than a half.

A very well-deserved win.

They're a slick outfit the Doggies ... and their teamwork is immense.

They'll trouble whoever they play next Friday night

Feels a lot like West Coast has done a Melbourne with this one (except we obviously never do this in finals). Just feels a bit like they thought they had the win before they started playing. Selection error (dropping Jetta for a tall and then being cut up by the Dogs' run), some of their stars playing selfish football (it feels like a team vs 22 individuals).

Yep i agree. Dogs took them on from the first bounce. 

Great to hear Basil's commentary...

I love watching the West Coast midfielders duck their heads into tackles and then, when the umpire correctly refuses to pay a free for a high tackle, the midfielder has no idea what to do next.

The crowd know what to do though.

BOO BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Well aren't the Meth Coke huge pretenders.

Can't wait to hear Tim Gosage on SEN tomorrow morning. He was on today raving about Eagles and how they were super confident of tonight and going deep into finals.. Ox was all over him and asked him if he would be in tomorrow if Eagles lost

Caleb Daniel is a gun. Is so composed and doesn't waste a possession. 

Well done to Luke Beveridge. Never heard him complain about their constant injuries or use youth as an excuse for lack of effort. Hopefully Goodwin takes a leaf out of his book.

Hate to sound like a broken record but to all those who excused our last two games on the basis that we were young or tired.... have a look at what a "TEAM" can do.

They had every right after their incredibly bad run with injuries  and then ending up with the almost impossible finals assignment to say... we are too young and too tired but they played to their strengths and won easily.

Yes ... I am very jealous !!!

So so happy for the Dogs. At least there is one team in the finals that don't make me sick to my stomach.

They were fantastic tonight, and credit to them for not giving up despite their mounting injury list. Here's hoping they knock out Whorethon next week!

Well done Doggies!!  Its great to see the Weagles bomb out on their own dunghill. Particularly pleasing for me as a Victorian living in Perth.

Kennedy has not fired tonight which doesn't surprise as he has always been a down hill skier. Most of his goals have been against the lowly teams where he kicked a few bags. Hope the Doggies can repeat the dose on Geelong or Hawthorn next week.

    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
