No Fritsch in the top 10. Sack Goodwin.

Needs to kick 7 in next year’s premiership to secure a top 10 spot. Don’t be stupid. 
 

Congratulations to all the winners, and especially by to Clarry. Our unicorn in red and blue.

Just watched the videos and was super impressed by Kate Rothey our president. She spoke so well. I think if any of the boys disrespected a female in any way she'd rip them apart. She has a real warmth as well. Her good wishes and inclusion of Glen Bartlett was great to see. She is a very good leader. We are a good club in good hands.

Go Dees

Must have been a great night unfortunately I couldn't watch the live stream as I was watching Spiderman with my daughter. It was great to see Neale Daniher inducted into the hall of fame. Great send off for Nev and the legend Jones. 

Fritsch not in the top 10 says how strong a list we really have. Great to see Neal-Bullen in the top 10. Salem in the top 4 shows that the AA selectors got it wrong he should have been AA ahead of Dale. The top 3 will go down as greats of not only the club but the game as well.

Of the wings, Langdon was superior. Bradshaw had an amazing GF and sacrificed for the team to play defensive wing but he still did struggle to perform offensively. 

Not a criticism coz someone has to do the hard work but I can see why he’s outside the top 10.

He didn't struggle to perform offensively,

His role was to support the backline and link up with the forward line which he did in a calm and efficient role playing manner. He was never going to be in the top 10 after he relinquished his on ball position for the team.

Will always be able to stand tall for his play all season and magnificent best game ever ( for impact and team play) in the Grand Final. 

Angus  like Tmac is a total team player !

Well put Desp. 
we will be great if we can keep up the standard of 2021 and win another or 2 more flags.

Classy and competent. on two points

 One above acknowledging Glenn Bartlett, and secondly her comment on the directors and thanking them, most have been along for the ride for much of the dark times , stating her thanks and that people don't see or hear from them, "...which is how it should be..."

Pert is our spokesman and does a brilliant job at it.  

Take note Pies and Hawks please. Interestingly the who-ha of the Pies Board elections saw 5000 members vote out or a qualified 12,000, out of a toal memebrship of 80,000 or so. Talk about elitism.

A special shout out to Nathan Jones-  boy did he speak well and from the heart. The standing ovation he received was priceless.

Nice refence to Tmac 58.

Tmac's shepherd in 3rd quarter will go down as the most effective in the Dees history. His finest moment too, to get Sparrows  goal (his finest moment also - so far) done was a GF turning point. Will be in highlights reels forever.

Great result.

If my maths is correct there's 1000 votes on offer if you play all 25 games.

When I look at the numbers there must be some pretty hard markers among those coaches.

Take Brayshaw for example. 332 votes from 25 games.averaging 13.28 votes a game from 4 coaches. 

 

Ie each coach on average gave him on average 3.32 votes out of a possible 10.

 

Is that right. Sounds too low

 

Oliver scored 6.7 votes on average from each coach..

What criteria are adopted for the votes is unknown. Impact on the result, commitment to team plans, fulfilling roles, plugging gaps, versatility, innovation at the contest, exceeding expectations etc may also be relevant criteria in addition to accumulation of possessions and scores.

Be proud of all players. They all contributed.

If the voting system is exponential and a 3-4 out of 10 is doing your job for the team then that sounds about right. Gus had a huge number of games where he really was ordinary at best, I'm thinking at least 6 or more where he wouldn't have hit the 3 mark. Then a lot of his games were probably around the 3-5. With a small handful of very good games scoring 6+ that counter out the games where he didn't play well.

Petty had 293 votes in 19 games. 15.4 a game.

Lever 498 in 25 games. 19.2 a game.

May  431 in 23 games (or 22.5 really).  18.7

It's another leap from an average of 3/10 per coach to 4/10 and the role in the team for Petty is easier than the other guys but I thought that was interesting from the leaderboard. Clearly the coaches really liked Petty's year.

Just finished watching the speeches. I saved the Daniher hall of fame induction until last. The tribute from Nathan Jones and Neale’s speech as delivered by David Neitz hit me straight in the heart.

If you don’t like people seeing you cry I recommend watching it in private.

The Norm Smith Memorial Trophy is a coach’s award and this year the winner was Alex Neal-Bullen.

ANB is a testament to persistence and determination, with faith and guidance from the coaching staff thrown in.

Were round by round scores given?  Interested in particular who would have got the votes in the PF (Max obviously) and the GF.

Clarry will go down as an all time great not just of the club but of the competition. Congratulations to him and all winners of various awards. 

Interesting (and really good) to see that ANB won the coaches award. I remember when he got unfairly screwed by the MRO for his dangerous tackle against Adelaide last year (deserved suspension but not the length), I genuinely thought that could be the end of him. But the club stuck fat with his, he came into the pre-season same as TMac with a clean slate and rejuvenated attitude, and became the true definition of a clubman and a role player. He clearly loves the club, and is loved by his teammates. I’m more than happy to eat humble pie with my previous beliefs on what he would be as a player. 

The other thing to note, as you’d expect from such a great year, is the players that ended up outside the top 10. Fritta had an incredible year, Brayshaw sacrificed to play a team oriented position, Spargo always cracked in, and Jackson won the Rising star. I don’t think any of them would begrudge their positions, they ultimately got to taste the greatest victory of all!

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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

    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
