Some Priest would have fit nicely! There's going to be a lot of music played that's for sure. 

I hope you’re well and truly over your injury in two weeks! There’s another match for which you need to be cherry ripe. 😁

I thought I saw Rivers near the boundary  pleading to come off in the last 5 mins and was kindly refused entry to the interchange. 
Sorry Riv, All-Australians only permitted.

May will be fine. 
 

Looked up and about post game. 
 

Even Goodwin post-game said they are quietly confident he will be fine. 

They said it was a back related problem causing his hamstring to tighten up and if you watched him when he came off they were working on his glute area not the hamstring

Un-bloody-believable. Just an incredible performance. Refused to give an inch all night.

Hearing the Gawny chant go around the ground was magic. Lots of red and blue in the crowd. It was great to see my fellow West Aussies get around us.

I hate Geelong with a passion. Like, I properly hate them. Tune it and barrack hard against them every week. I've never felt physically ill before a game until yesterday because of this. Last night (and Rd 23) have just about made my life complete. Max Gawn is literally the Demons GOAT. 

I could have written this word for word. Perfectly summed up the way I feel

I know they call soccer the beautiful game but that was beauty in chaos like you will rarely see. Gawn with one of the great individual premiership quarters and the list could go on. We have a spread of talent in attribute and age that list managers only dream of building. We have a culture and connection that few clubs ever create. We are in rare air but will still need to beat one more quality opponent to bring it home. Well played number 11, number 5, number 3 #team effort

In the victorious and dominant years ahead we will acknowledge this win as a turning point.

Maxs crumbing skills are on par with Kozzies.

In all honesty his ground ball skills are very good for someone his size

Just watched the replay.

May came off midway through 3rd 1/4 when we got to 70 points lead. No way our medicos would have left him on up to then if it risked a GF for him.

Absolutely. At 0ver 200 cm I am astonished at how he gathers the ball.

Yesterday he combined that with dare i say it...CATlike reflexes in getting ball to boot on the run, through the goal. Its freakish.

Jackson isnt far behind either in this department.

I'm not so sure

If it's a 3-4 week hammy, makes no difference if he plays on and makes it worse

It saves the Sub for a bit longer to protect a concussion to another player

He looked sad when he came off, and Mark Williams was in his ear I assumed it was to make him keep his mood up and important for team morale.

I hope he's OK, but not confident

Well that was a night I'll never forget, easily the best game I've seen us play we were relentless and how good was it in the last, we manically tried to stop Geelong from scoring, absolutely ruthless display that was incredible to witness. And wasn't it good to see TMac drop back in the last, it was like hmmm? we have that option too. Boy did big Max get us out of our seats he was gobsmackingly good I can't believe the level he went to and then topped it off with that chase down tackle. Everyone contributed a highlight it was such an even performance. I particularly want to mention Salem, my goodness he's as hard as a cats head and patrolled that half back line with aplomb. Young Bowey the kid is ridiculously clean, keeps his feet and consistently makes good decisions he is a gun!!

Being in a pro Melbourne crowd took me back to my early teens when I was with friends in the members stand at the MCG. My family moved to Perth when I was 16 and besides going to a Melb v Coll game in the late 90s (we won by 54 points which is the second best live game I've been to) every game since has been a WA home game. To be part of a large contingent of Melbourne supporters was amazing and on reflection nurturing and therapeutic we miss out on that over here. There was so much excitement during and after the game high fives with random people, we broke into the song with others on our long walk back to the car and heard a Transperth bus full of supporters singing as it went past us. It was a truly memorable night and everything I'd hoped for and to top it off the Stadium and Bridge to East Perth were lit up in Red and Blue after the game. Amazing.

What a great way to wake up for my birthday... Melbourne heading into the Grand Final, whilst also giving Geelong a good thrashing. 

Gawn, Petracca, Oliver, Salem, Lever were amazing again last night, as they have been all year. But I was so impressed with Brayshaw's defensive efforts and Bowey's skill and composure from a 7 gamer in a big final. This kid is something! 

Soak this feeling up everyone. We don't experience these days often! Go Demons!

Happy birthday to you! Enjoy🎉

Fair point. Having had one when I played it looked to me was moving too freely for a serious one and the back massage may have got him going to stay on. Then use the 15 days to get right

    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

    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
