GAMEDAY - Round 2


Josh

Recommended Posts

It's that time of year again, the world famous Corowa Easter Saturday Billy cart races. 10am start and we've had enough by 10.30 and start the pub crawl home. I doubt I'll see any of the game tonight let alone remember, but I have this sinking feeling I wont want too...

Interesting to see that Frost, Hannan, Kent, Weideman, Baker were Casey's best players against Frankston in the VFL according to Jade Rawlings, albeit that the Frankfurters are at present a lowly, re-building skill set. This augers well for the AFL team, with Keilty making his mark alongside Oskar Baker in defence/wing. Trademark runs and skills from Frosty were very good in setting up attacking ball movement across the whole game. His confidence is obviously high, despite missing 2 selections in a row with the firsts. Kent has worked himself up from a dislocated shoulder last season to kick 4 telling goals, to provide aggression at - and for - the ball, in the forward line and obviously has got his kicking foot working again. Weideman looks like he has turned a corner with contributions in front of goal and around the ground as a mobile ruckman. This is the news we have been waiting for and although it was a game at a different level, it was a good omen as far as skills, team balance and contested footy were concerned.

It won't matter. Something about this Brisbane team. If you give them a sniff they won't back off.

Any chance of some pictures of the billy cart race Josh.

Sounds like a wonderful event. Corowa is a beautiful town.

Dees by 38 !

Our Demons have a way of letting us down, that is way there is the negativity and nervousness on this site.

Fingers crossed, today is the start of something new and we pump the Lions by 10 goals, play four quarters, have 22 players turn up to play, and keep going when we get in front!

A win is a win tonight. The last two  formal games we’ve played have left a really bitter taste in our mouths. We need to get the winning feeling back and build some momentum. This will make footy fun again.

I feel exactly the same way TK  

It is really draining watching and supporting this team and it would be nice to start winning and having some fun supporting our team. 

I can’t remember the last time it was enjoyable to support this team on a consistent basis.

Like @Nasher I have no concerns about this game. 

You guys have the heart of a grape seed.

I'm just waiting to be told about how my attitude is what causes us to drop these games.  Pretty disappointing response so far!

We will win this game by 10 goals or more. You lot are off your chops if you think they will get near us.

I read that and I know you are right. We have far more talent all over the park. 

But the last decade of disappointment has conditioned me to expect the worse

Get off the acid. I do hope your right though. A win by a point would be enough for me.

I know exactly what you mean, I just made a conscious decision a few years ago not to allow myself to be conditioned.  I see so many Melbourne supporters on this forum who are broken (spend some time in the match day threads if you get a chance), and I refuse to let that happen.  Like everyone else, I went through the Neeld era always knowing wins were unlikely and I reckon my love for footy would have petered out long ago if I was still looking at everything through that lens.

If Brisbane unexpectedly field a competent side, then I'll settle for a hard fought win too.  I'm expecting them to field the team of pus they fielded last week though. Make no mistake, they are a hopeless side.

Lowering my expectations to start the season and still believe we will be 1-4 after five games.

Will be ecstatic to be proven horribly, horribly wrong.

Didn't you have a completely different attitude a fortnight ago?

What are we defining as the a drop? The 30 pt (5 goal to none qtr) as defined by AFL commentators or just a bad qtr where we are outscored by a goal?

I'll say the 2nd again - and we should hopefully be able to over run them like the  Aints did last week.

Attitude is important here.

While it's fine for punters like ourselves to mouth off on forums like this, the boys need to respect the opposition that's out there and pay them commensurate respect by playing to the best of their abilities.

Collingwood fielded a patched together side in round 23 last year. We had most of our best 22 in (minus Jack Viney) and proceeded to go out and poo the bed.

If you have made it to AFL level, you have some type of aptitude to play the game. Our boys best remember that.

That being said, I think we should win by 18 points if I were to put my tipsters hat on.

Too many broken supporters on here, we will win by 40 plus 

The statements aren’t for the rest of the forum really... it’s to help themselves reduce their expectations so they can’t be disappointed... self protection psychologically. And that’s fine by me - 50 plus points - Fritsch to jag 3 and OMAC to waltz down from full back and tumble one through from beyond 50 :)

You lot are more than welcome to think this will be a walk in the park. No easy games these days, and Brisbane are always a better side at home. I think we will win, but we need to play well.

    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

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
