  • Demonland changed the title to FINALS: Week 01 2021 (NON MFC)

If those two finals in Tassie aren’t a packed house (to maximum COVID allowances assuming there are some) then they don’t have a chance of getting a team of their own.

I'm a big proponent of Tassie getting a team of their own (or a relocated team) however if they don't fill the stadiums this week then I will change my tune on that and say that they don't deserve a team of their own.

Dogs got stiffed big time after nominating Adelaide Oval as their preferred venue for this week. HQ will want the Bummers getting through this week for sure.

I want the dogs to win, as I know we can beat them and they are down on form.

And

I HATE the bombers!!!!

If we lose a final, that will be bad enough, but if we lost to the Bombers, I would be so so so so shattered and angry!

Happy to see some games in Tassie, though I'm a little surprised that both games are in Launceston and that Hobart missed out?

If we end up hosting Port in the Friday Night Prelim, I expect it to be in Hobart myself.

The loser of the Port - Geel game has to play a confident Swans or GWS. 

Us and BL have got the softer side of the draw - no excuses for either not to make a Prelim.

Would love to win this week of course and won’t get too far ahead of myself but… 

My bet for prelims is;

Melb v Syd

Port v BL

Dogs have gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in a blink of an eye. Clear on top before losing their final three games & main key forward and now being shunted down to Launceston to play a sudden death final in a late Sunday time slot. Judging by the pro Essendon crowd at the recent Hawthorn game down there it'll feel more like an away game in more ways than one.

I wonder what our plans are. 

 

We trained in Melbourne today.

I assume we will also depart to SA shortly and stay there if we lose. If we win I wonder if we go home and then fly out to WA instead? Or do we stay in SA regardless then fly to WA directly with less quarantine restrictions having spent a week in SA?

Either way, I am glad nobody is expecting a baby soon (except Jones).

These are my desired outcomes:

  • Dogs to dispatch Bombers in Elimination.
    • I think the Bombers are the real smokey if they get past the Dogs.
  • Swans beat GWS (pretty indifferent on this one to be fair)
  • Port beat Geelong (Cats out in straight sets is my Utopia this Finals)

Both games sold out within minutes of tickets going on sale.

Interesting that old mate Chris Scott just said on AFL360 that Geelong expects to go to Perth a few days after its Port Adelaide clash, regardless of whether it wins or loses.

Does this suggest the same will happen with us? Meaning, if we got beaten by the Lions, we would play the winner of Bulldogs/Essendon in Perth, but more importantly, Port Adelaide in Perth if they beat Geelong (so they don't get a home preliminary final)?

Hinkley then says he thinks Port would get a 2nd Adelaide home final...

Faith restored.

Are you going?

Nah. Both games are in Launceston (3 hour drive each way from my place), I’m busy on Saturday and don’t want to spend my only weekend day in the car. Would have gone if it was in Hobart though.

Bombers have a pretty solid following in Tassie so that was expected. I’m pleasantly surprised the Sydney GWS game sold out so quickly too though.

    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
