The absolute nerve that we can can come back after conseding 8 consecutive goals without 5 members from our premiership backline.

Watch out 2022, here we come!

So this is what it feels to be a good team, beat maybe the 2nd best side while playing mediocre 

Not even warmed up for the season.

Update on Salem?

Looks like a PCL. If so that could potentially be a 6-10 game stint on the sidelines.

if that’s the case I’m surprised he played given the strapping he already had on it.

Hey Rod, have you heard anything else RE. Salo. He didn't have his knee iced in the last quarter. Uncertain if this is a good thing, but he seemed pretty chipper.

We certainly missed Salem's congested clearances and his well-timed , more thoughtful clearances and play-making. But the menagerie backline actually held up well - enough to confuse the Doggies, that is.

Odd feeling. I know it sounds cocky but I didn’t feel stressed or tense at any stage in that game, even in the second. This team will get it done. I just know they will.

Same. Even when we were 22 points down. It's not cockiness. We finally have a team we can trust & believe in.

Jeaus christ I was nervous in that last quarter..

A great win after being challenged. Some really good signs from players who seem to continue good form into this new year.

Really disappointed about Salem.

Was interesting to see a few different things in the middle. Nibbler in there a bit was interesting, especially when we have Harmes and Brayshaw in the wings.

Nibbler definitely featured at a fair few centre bounces last year. Not surprising to see him in them at later stages of the game, especially earlier in the season, considering his fitness.

He is very good while working in close

Fascinating game. 

Just like every other game against them last year EXCEPT the Grannie  they let Macrae rack up big numbers and put no time into him.

That is one confident move. Keep your powder dry for the finals

Knew we had them Naughton over celebrated his goal in the 2nd qtr!

Felt strangely calm at The G myself!

During the last quarter we were just so good at parrying their forward thrusts - smothers, defensive marks and spoils etc. Fantastic work rate. 

Pleasing to see Bedford start to get some of the ball late. Loving how good ball users spargs and particularly bowey are. Jackson is starting to look really imperious - could be an exciting year ahead for him. Hoping Salem not too bad, that's a huge loss on top of petty/lever/hibberd/rivers. Kudos to Smith on a promisingly solid outing, relief seeing thommo get through when originally being held back, and nice cameos from tmac down back too. Phew.

He did the Bont “I’ve just won the Norm Smith” celebration.

BBB is in for a ripper season I think.

Doesn't get outmarked, brings the ball to ground at worst and makes a contest. Plus has a bit of a run at players to force them out wide before they kick.

Also knows how to do some nice taps if he can't mark it.

And kicks goals!

Weapon.

Takeaways from tonight 

1- we are a genuinely good team. We know how to win, we know how to swing momentum, we know how to kill opposition’s confidence. 

2- umpiring putrid. Dogs in for another golden run with them in 2022

3- we are lucky the Bulldog’s forwardline is a dog’s breakfast outside of Naughton who is a gun. We will really hurt without Salem and Lever against the better forward teams (Brisbane, Geelong etc). 

4- Benny Brown is in for a big year 

5- our Goal kicking is still putrid 

6- Petracca is next level 

7- Freed from Desire is a terrible song

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again headlining another blockbuster at the MCG to kick off the round of footy. The Dees take on the Blues and have the opportunity to win their third game on the trot to solidify a spot in the Top 4 in addition to handing the Blues their third consecutive defeat to bundle them out of the Top 8.
