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!

There is something to be said here.  Also that brain snap decision to kick to the space that Spargo had lead to 4 seconds prior which he initially ignored .... with only a Hawk then present taking the resulting pass to Spargo's shadow!??

His tapping appears to be just that.....a tap anywhere.  And his only other option at this point is to bash it forward where the opp often has a defensive sweeper who often then gets first use and/or runs off with it on the counter.

Time to get down & dirty and play smarter footy big boy!

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

Will cost us finals, our sh*tty kicking.

Clarry by a country mile (set shots).  Clarry, Spargo and Kozzie should almost always look to dish the ball off to anyone if they aren't 30 meters out or less.  I would even get them to go backwards if needed they are that bad.

Need better kicks in the side sorry but butchers need to be weeded out.

Also set routines for kicking for goal, players should stop tossing the ball around as they walk in - just hold the damn thing steady and concentrate on kicking straight. So annoying professional footballers who can't kick straight

gawn just did not seem to be on the same page as his midfield, a few of times he hit it to the side with 2-3 hawks while melbourne players were on the other side. Do they actually discuss where each midfielder should go each time or is it just hit and miss.  he at least tried his heart out.

When their midfielders got the ball we just did not seem to put them under enough pressure. we may go at the man with the ball but leave other unmarked to receive and run with it.

Viney tries to do to much, tries to bullock his way through but gets caught too often. Brayshaw does seem to have a problem kicking, a few games this years he has kicked the ball out of bounds multiple times when not under pressure. maybe they need to check out his technique. quite frankly brayshaw shooting for goal does worry me.

we have some of the best forwards in the business then why are they not leading out in different directions instead of staying in one pack making it easier for opposition to corral them. Too often all of our forwards fly and leave the opposition to clean up without too much pressure. our small forwards needs to exert more pressure when the ball goes to ground. and preferably kick straight for a change.

In conjunction with many other problems lining up a goal - including the frequency of what is appearing as a preference for those speccy 'around the corner' set shots - we must concentrate on leading out to alternative angles and spaces, forcing a clearance of the hot zone (and development more kicking skills across a 45 metre distance / range), plus more midfield /half forward shots and accuracies 'on the run'. We do not 'set' the ball, we fiddle with it; we over-value static forwards, falsely thinking they are our strengths; our smalls have talents yet are easily dispossessed and/or knocked off an intended line; we have too many forward passengers who should really be working hard and smart to create alternative opportunities in seconds.

We must have an enormous insufficiency in our training methods and forward-line creativity for such basic errors to be so prolific.

    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
