POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs Adelaide

Recommended Posts

That loss has been a few weeks in the making IMHO. Its almost a relief to get it out of the way. I will be happy to split the next 2 games 50/50 and reset at the bye.

Not the end of the world.

Umpires would be proud getting their team over the line. 

That missed holding the ball call and missed deliberate were disgraceful.

That was deliberate, not that it matters. We played like trash and deserved to lose that. We would have lost by more if not for Clarry.

Fancy losing to those posers. 1v 16. And with Tex kicking the winning goal.

I feel sick.

No more 'we get the job done despite being sloppy', we need to fix things for next week as the Doggies, and then Lions will not be as forgiving.

Maybe it's the loss we needed to have but gee we need to be a lot better.

Premiership contenders don't lose to teams like Adelaide.    We might make a prelim but we wont win the flag.

The  Dogs and Lions will beat us the next two weeks.

 

Tigers lost to Adelaide in 2017 and 2019.

We had a lot of chances going forward and didn't take them, so we shouldn't have given the opportunity for those late decisions to matter.

We played badly and they played well. Sometimes that happens. We missed Salem's presence behind the ball quite a lot.

To blame anyone but ourselves for that loss is to wallpaper over the obvious cracks that have been there since we beat Richmond. 
I hope this is the loss we had to have because boy did we play poorly for large chunks of that game. Oliver kept us in it,  but beyond that we had a really embarrassing amount of players who played like selfish millionaires. 
In footy you get out what you put in. We put in no effort for an hour. We’ve been getting away with it, but eventually your luck runs out. 
Salem is also basically our most important player. Our backline was exceptionally poor without him. He covers for the mediocrity of Hunt and Hibberd.

Obviously, you don't want to be relying on those free kicks to win a game, but the holding the ball before Walker's goal and the deliberate out of bounds at the end were very poor.

    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
