GAMEDAY: Rd 06 vs Richmond

Recommended Posts

A few years ago, I went through the Straits of Dardanelles and sailed past Gallipoli. The morning was calm and serene and the place where fierce battles were fought was silent. It felt surreal to think of what had transpired there. Sport and war are two entirely different things but I have to admit that I have that same surreal feeling today.

Me too WJ, and a similar result in a sporting sense will unfold tonight.

Game day or Shame day?

At a minimum I want the team to exhibit some fighting character and courage to honour the Anzacs.  2 soldiers were in talking to the club, lets see what rubs off.

I will be stuck in another event until about 1/4 time and will be looking at the app.  The service at the start is a highlight, and will miss that part.  Not so sure what I will miss for the rest of the night.

Go Dees.  Wishful thinking - we break down their system and win by 32 points.  Reality - (god help us)

Went to the game 2 years ago when Trac was hobbling, Gawn was out and Smith bdly injured putting his body on the line. We were up in the 3rd but Roo put on a show and our injuries made a difference.  We were hard and tough. 

Seems many many years ago.  Not confident  to say the least.

Call me insane, but I think it will be a pretty competitive game.  We generally match up pretty well with the Tigers and there is still plenty of talent and ability in our side.

I'm not sure we can win and play good footy for long enough, but I don't see it being a blood bath.

Hopefully Wiseblood bans himself from optimistic assessments today pre game that only depress me more (I generally do agree with you WB)

Apparently not but I guess its needed.

It was a gutsy performance that night, simply ran out of legs after dominating for the first 3 quarters and should have been up by more than 20 at 3 quarter time. We also lost Spencer during the second quarter and Mr Watts was rucking again. 

Just make it tough again for them where they have to earn their goals all game. Toiges fans have become arrogant, want to see them shuffling in their chairs for as long as possible.

Garlett to kick 5, including the sealer from the pocket on his left foot.

Tom Mac to have 8 marks and kick 3 goals.

Frost to keep Tom Lynch to one kick, which goes out on the full.

Hibberd to dash from half back, take 9 bounces at full tilt and dob it from 20 metres out.

DEMONS!!

This team has lost any and all credibility it earned last year, and not one thing gives me any confidence they’ve got any idea how to come back in any meaningful way. I fear it’s gonna get very ugly on the biggest night of this club’s year, and if we’re not considered an embarrassment already, tonight will nail home our shame good and proper.

    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
