joeboy

Recommended Posts

Oliver - Hollywood Olly returns

Viney - selfish and wasteful 

Gawn - tried but unconvincing 

Petracca - failed important moments

Salem - not as dominant 

Fritsch - took his chances

Brayshaw - regularly butchered disposals

Langdon - couldn’t hurt opponents

Jordon - was rarely sighted

Hibberd - never looked controlled 

Lever - safe without dominance

Pickett - needed more involvement 

Neal-Bullen - retention not justified 

Spargo - great first quarter

Hunt - successfully provided run

vandenBerg - a momentum killer

Brown - had little effect

Rivers - has lost impact

McDonald - was almost unsighted

May - safe and reliable 

Petty - continued to impress 

Jackson - just a game

Ridiculously harsh on Salem & AVB.  

Salem was a rock & AVB was a terrific game for someone who hadn't played for a very long time and had very little VFL football.  He had a big hand in 3 goal scoring chains and came back from a huge bump.

Way too complimentary on Gawn who had his worst game in his last 50 odd.

Jackson wasn't just a game, he was once again, very poor and just isn't giving enough.

Disagree on Gawn.  He tried very hard.  That chase in the third was immense.  My Hawthorn supporting mates said they win by 4 goals if Gawn wasn't playing.

The only reason they drew was that he was getting clear hit outs and everything went to Mitchell, Worpel & O'Meara.

Also, can't stand the smiling and lack of intensity.  The Captain sets the level of intensity and fanaticism  Never see Joel Selwood smiling!

I don't know who is a less convincing kick for goal, Jackson or Oliver. 

Will cost us finals, our sh*tty kicking.

I'm usually the first one to pot the umpires but not this time. The game should've been over at half time no questions asked, but we slackened off for 10 mins and lost the game. That's on our players.

Picture this, 3/4 time, our premiership hopes are on the line in terms of a top 4 finish. We recognise that we need to start winning more contests. So what happens at the first centre bounce in the last quarter? A straight forward centre clearance and kick to Lewis who strolls in to take the mark and goals. Enough said. 

It was a pea hearted effort by all players and coaches tonight.

Don’t agree with many joeboy. Trac and Clarry were among our best and what was safe and reliable about May? Poor game imo

Very selfish game by Viney... 11 tackles! He obviously is trying too hard! 32 Disposals... He should stick with 6 or 7 to warrant the criticism that the astute arm-chair critics of Demonland spit out! Only third for the team on metres gained... well that caps it off!

You're too caught up in the stats movement. The turnovers killed us. Time and time again.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    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

    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
