If not us, then..?

1. GWS

2. Anyone, that is, ANYONE other than Essendon. I’d sooner a Collingwood three-peat than one Essendon flag.

GWS midfield:

Kelly - Whitfield - Taranto - Green - Hopper - Ward - Coniglio

If their talls stand up - Himmelberg, Hogan and Ricardo - they should be top 4 easy and my tip to lose the Granny against us

I'm of a different opinion. We're not the only club with talented players, but what was our point of difference in 2021? I think it was the selfless approach which the players talked about. Given the follow the leader mentality in the AFL, I expect to see those teams that get the selflessness approach right to be the ones who challenge us.

A club that has just made Toby Greene its co-captain hasn't understood anything about selflessness. Greene is the poster boy for selfish behaviour.

What a hideous decision to make. 
Soft spot for the Aints…No way. let them suffer in the wilderness for a few more decades. 
they were a Nightclub back in the 80’s 

I really have no one else I want to win the Flag

Live is too short. I want to see at least 4 in a row 

At least!

I just want to say to those people saying negative and mean spirited things about Essendon…

I completely agree.

The funniest thing I've experienced recently is Carlton and Essendon supporters having a go at Melbourne supporters on BigFooty for being arrogant! Obviously born this century, I had to let them know about the reputation of Blues and Bombers in the 80s and 90s and even into the 2000s which really only got wiped away after salary breach penalties/two decades of being crap and drug cheating penalties/a decade plus of being crap.

If not us then I think then Port will win.

If not us I would like to see the Saints win. I know there are plenty that laugh at them having only the one premiership and now the longest drought, but we showed that they're made to be broken and I'd like to see them win it before the likes of GWS, Freo, and (lol) GC win their first.

I thought Brisbane were the second best side last year, so if not us, I think they'll win it.

GWS and GC would be the easiest teams to watch win it though.  Does anyone know someone who seriously supports (not vague, nominal support) either of them?  And winning the whole thing is probably the only way the AFL will see any return for the huge investment that has been put into those teams, which begrudgingly benefits us all.  Apart from Greene, they don't have any players I dislike.

I'd like for the saints to pinch one... however not this year. This is ours again.

I'd also like to see the $uns get one before GW$. Theres been far too much arrogance from that western Sydney team for the last few years despite their newness and lack of clout and lack of supporters ... I also hate the Sun's the least out of any other club

Don’t you get enjoyment out of their suffering? I know I do. The thought of anyone winning the GF other than us makes me feel ill. 

Yes I do fill ill but if we're knocked out it has to be someone else. My preference is Saints, would feell a little less ill.

Worked with a bunch of them back in the day. Didn't know so until Sheedy came and they started to win, boy did they come out of the woodwork and so cocky with it.

I’m a [censored] and hope that St Kilda’s drought continues for decades to come.

That’s me but with Essendon’s final winning drought. It’s just so funny. Long may it continue.

    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
