GAMEDAY: AFLW Rd 10 vs Carlton



Recommended Posts

First has never been the priority. Securing second by grinding out a win after a Perth trip is the aim. It’s going to take a huge effort from here in to the wind. 
 

Harris has been caught in between deep and up the ground. They need to get her back in position. 
 

Would like to see Kate Hore have a run on the ball to get in to the game.

The lack of knowledge of the ladder and the implications of the commentators is pretty poor. If we lost we could have slipped to third which is huge

Well what a heart stopper hung on by a fingernail. Carlton certainly applied a lot of heat and tackled ferociously. Well done girls.!!

If Carlton win tonight, it's 4 in a row for them. They're one of the form teams in the comp, and I'm glad the girls were able to get the win, even if it wasn't the big win we all hoped for to give us the best chance.

Awful composure. 
 

The Mithen kick with 2 minutes left was inexcusable. Ball use the entire last quarter was crazy. 
 

But coming back from Perth is tough, even if you win by 80.

Hopefully the week off fixes Purcell up and Zanker too. The big body mids are just vital for us to be any chance.

Very lucky.  Succumbed to Carlton’s pressure,  but managed to survive (just) at the ‘death’.  ‘Bath water’? /  coming off a long road trip? Who knows? ……. but performances like that will not cut it in finals!

Jonsey Just called Vescio a she. Assume he’ll be cancelled by Monday 

One of his co-commentators called Vescio a they and a she in the same sentence.
I have an idea what that says about the whole situation, but I can't say it because I'll get cancelled.

Terrible performance and pretty difficult to argue that the better team won. 

Perhaps the trip to Perth didn't help but, with so much at stake, we looked incredibly half hearted, indecisive and overwhelmed. 

Hopefully they can take the week off to rest up, refocus and bring a much better performance in the preliminary final.

    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
