GAMEDAY: AFLW Rd 10 vs Carlton



Recommended Posts

Was watching the game at TGIs without sound but assume the commentators were saying that the umpiring was well below standard. 

I get they want to keep the game moving but so many non decisions against us - head high contact, marking interference etc. 

Putting that aside, Carlton did a great job in  nullifying our ball movement. Reminded me of our game vs the Hawks. would have won the game if they weren’t so defensively orientated.

A couple of things after half time. Paxmans 3rd quarter was excellent and Mithens final quarter as well. 

The only positive I can take out of the game was that we wont play as poorly again this year. It could not be possible.

Mithen needs to have Mark Williams in her ear - she could be something special if she made better decisions and executed her short kicks better.

Libby had a mare in her 50th. Just looked in her head all night. Maddie Gay and Colvin bailed out the backs a bunch.

That game was probably good for them going into the prelim.

The game we had to have after a soft win against Freo. A wins a win but we have to play better to win the premiership. The tackling game of Carlton and Adelaide has found us out a little bit.

Not sure I’m following the umpires were terrible narrative. They were better than the last few weeks I thought (not saying much I admit). Carlton went harder at the ball mistly and hit the frees. Still some dodgy decisions there but didn’t influence the game too much

Big thing I noticed tonight was the amount of scrub kicks and times caught holding the ball we did, speaks of heavy legs from last weeks run fest. Hopefully look a heck of a lot better next game after some solid recovery work.

PS for anyone that was there, my daughter was the girl on the field at three quarter time in the 3 shots on goal thing they did for BCNA with the 3 kids. She got her third one through and was super happy about the cheer the crowd gave her. Big thank you if that was you cheering, you made her night!!! 🙏😊❤️💙

Nothing like a reality check before finals, but I could have done without QUITE such a bad performance!

Several players put in season-worst games. Many played as though they expected a repeat of last week, which is wild considering the stark difference in setting and opposition.

It doesn't exactly fill you with confidence for what's ahead, but here's hoping we can regain some form and understand why Carlton's approach was so effective in curtailing us. It doesn't take a rocket scientist, so you'd think we'd be onto it, it's just a matter of having the legs, mental freshness and persistence to apply what we need to do.

I only saw one end of the game due to my seating position (trying and failing to gain some wind protection), but based on that it felt like the one who had the most zeal was Heath. She's sky-high on confidence right now.

P.S. According to Zanker's interview with the ground announcer pre-match, she'll be right to go for finals.

Yes, Shelley Heath was awesome and continues her very good season claiming another impressive  assignment win over Georgia Gee.

ps fingers crossed for Zanker, we desperately need her strength and dynamism

Whisky Tango Foxtrot?

She’s all ego and bluster. Dishes out little cheap bumps and shoves after contests but won’t stand under a high ball and can’t execute quick handballs under pressure that require her to wear contact. Prefers to chase free kicks by dropping the knees or falling forward. Gets turned around easily when chasing opponents too.

Shes excellent at reading the play and positioning but otherwise doesn’t play the right brand of footy for finals. If she wants to be a media personality she needs to show she can play for her team mates first.

    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

    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
