Hope we win but realistically it’s probably going to be a 30+ loss. 

Mmmm, i thought that, then I realised I was referring to form from the 2019 season. A whole range of things have drastically changed. I'm optimistic.

I'm quietly confident based on our pre season form, and the very  little I saw of an under-manned WCE over summer.  Quiet confidence will no doubt morphe into loud supporting during the match, and I hope to have good reason to keep the volume on high post siren.

6:40 is such a late start. Still can’t believe the AFL scheduled the game for this time considering what we all know about Perth’s weather this time of the year. 3:40pm Perth time? Sun will be absolutely peaking! 

But we’ll still get up, so...

Based on a few games I have partially seen , a good start is essential, either kickaway or stop the opposition. 
the short quarters just make up catch up near impossible. at least no 4 crowd free leading to goals 
A win would mean foxtel playing this game all year in the best of 2020 if we dont get to rnd 2 :)

Checking in from . . . Darwin! 

Was excited that for the first time in years I haven't had to make complicated calculations about when to set my alarm to catch the match. Then realised that it's being played in Perth while I'm in the Territory in what remains of the various Australian daylight-savings periods.

Wasn't previously a fan - but thanks for setting up the game-day countdown clock Demonland!

Yes a hard start most important  slow like the dogs,  goodnight irene !    After watching Tigers and GWS  not so confident anymore, but anything is possible.  No support in the stands gives us an even break.

I thought Gameday would not get here,   GO DEES !!

funny time though !

I'm Perth born and raised and been going for this club for 22 years now. 

Every time this game comes round I pray to God we beat the Eagles. 

I think we will go down but anything more than 3 goals will be concerning. 

Looking at Brown + Viney to have big ones.

Definitely need to be up and about early, several teams have been jumped already.

Really looking fwd to today’s game, Kayo is up and running....

I’m excited at the prospect of Kozzie and Bedford running around, hope they play together for many years to come. Our forward line has the ability to be very dangerous with a good mix of players. 

All eyes on Petracca, quality opposition away from home and in form, we need him to dominate.

If Salem was playing would Hibberd miss altogether?

That’s true. Let’s hope pre-season form carries on into the season proper. The only thing better than beating the eagles, is betting them with a stadium full of eagles supporters.

Forget the tv rights (that the AFL, 7, Foxtel & Kayo are doing nicely from), surely the AFL if it was genuine about helping Clubs and fans, could allow the MFC to live stream to members (who will receive little benefit otherwise this year)? ?

32c and little breeze. The ground here gets hot anyway but with reduced quarters and normal interchange cap we shouldn’t be under any great duress. 
 

I think today we just need to be the more physical side. 
I tip that Kennedy won’t make it through the game if May punished him every time the footy comes in.

My only glimmer of hope is that the weagles generally don’t start the season well. 
 

I REALLY hope that trend continues. 

HMM they lost Rd 1  in 2015, 2018 AND 2019

I think you can sign up for a 14 day Kayo trial or $10 for 2 weeks. Quite reasonable really..

Yeah i hear you, McQueen... just looked like a strange decision for a day game in Perth for Rnd1. Anyway, feeling good about today regardless.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
