POST MATCH DISCUSSION - Round 8

Gee I love this club!

Positives everywhere!  Leadership was brilliant tonight - Viney, Jones, McDonald, Lewis etc. all stood up brilliantly tonight.  

Clayton Oliver is quickly becoming not just the best midfielder at our club but one of the best in the competition.  What a player.

Petracca into the midfield changed the game for us as well and hopefully he can spend more time in there in the coming weeks.

Big shout out to the backline who, with help from the midfield, kept the Crows to just 66 points.  This is a side who regularly spank teams with huge scores, yet their forwards barely got a look in all night.

I could go on and on and on.... but I think I'll go and watch the replay!

DEMONS!

Viney is back, and brilliant coaching especially putting TMac in the forward line.

The boys really wanted it and they got it!

Goodwin also showed tonight that he can react and change to suit the game - his move of McDonald forward was terrific and adding Petracca to the midfield was a masterstroke.  He isn't afraid to change things up and we are reaping the rewards because of it.

It also shows how much the players trust him as well.  Great stuff all round.

Great win but just goes to show that's it all between the ears for the boys. 

We lose against teams which we should win against and win against teams we should lose against. 

If we can fix that on a consistent basis the the competition is our oyster.

What was that?!

Kept Adelaide to 66 - their lowest score at Adelaide Oval since Round 9 2015 against Fremantle (minor premiers and defensive kings that year). Indeed, that's Adelaide's second lowest score at the Adelaide Oval ever.

What an incredible win.

We're out of the 8 at the end of this round but we'll only be a game behind 4th (which is a Geelong team that is average at best).

Clearly, we have the capacity to be a dominant side this year.

Cannot wait to watch the replay!

Un(bloody)believable.  I'm hoarse from watching the game on TV for God's sake. So, so proud to of our boys.  Courage, determination and desire to stick to the game plan.  We found a way to win, and then we went on with it!  I'll be wearing my member's cap to bed tonight.

Oliver's goal is one of the best I've ever seen because it was 100% deliberate.

Up there with Carey's in 1999.

A banana is usually hit with the foot swinging back into the field, Clarry just decided to aim his foot towards the stands and hit it so hard that it curled like an absolute mother!

Well 99% on here wanted Kent in for JKH and whilst the latter did kick a telling goal it sounded like Goodwin may have been vindicated somewhat (Kent didn't play a great deal better than JKH).

Picking up Hibbo also Goodwin's choice by the sounds of it. Just need Trekkers and Gus to make a move.

    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
