GAMEDAY: AFLW Preliminary Final vs Brisbane Lions

I think there’d be more than a few that were disappointed with that crowd. Free entry, first crack at finals, grand final on the line. I understand it was really miserable weather but I didn’t feel the club and the AFL pumped it up enough. 

I would’ve hoped for 10k+ in these circumstances. 

Anyway I’ll go to positive now, what a great achievement for the girls and club. So proud of them, they played like the MFC across the board. We have built a culture and that goes from Casey Mens, to AFLW, to the mens team. So glad a few of the boys were there to watch it. 

McNamara’s goal could’ve been our best of the weekend were it not for Langdon. Paxman was tireless as always, and Bannan has some serious jets on her. Adelaide are a very good side and as I speak seem to be doing a number on Freo, so hopes of a home GF look extremely unlikely. But either way we are in it, and if we play our best it stacks up. 

What a great time our club is having. Keep your eye on the red and blue! 

I thought it was a disappointing crowd. There was plenty of Lions supporters there as well, reckon the Dees contingent was no more than 4,000

having the mens game the night before had an impact. I couldn;t go to both so chose the womens prelim but most would have chosen the Essendon game. Pity it wasn't played on a weekend when the men were inter-state

Real pity it’s not played in spring in clear air but that’s hopefully getting fixed soon.

Also we have to wonder if the Casey crowd won’t go to the G and the G crowd never get to Casey so we don’t build a following.

But again, that’s another more complex issue 

It was disappointing no matter the excuses

I definitely agree that the men playing the night before negativity impacted the crowd. I know many people would’ve made the call that they could only get to one match for the weekend, so I can’t begrudge that. I also agree that if the guys were interstate it would’ve been a very different story.

Agree wholeheartedly on disappointing crowd. It’s national representative footy and deserves better. Will happen, but too slow for mine. Was a great atmosphere at the game (Warney Stand) and the footy was tough, hard-fought stuff. Frustrated me that the Lions so often waited for us to take possession, just waiting to lay tackles, then to be rewarded by some poor umpiring. Congrats to the mighty Dees, who rose above it, they were fantastic. Alyssa Bannan gets my excited anticipation going like watching Kozzie Pickett, and when she runs away from opponents it goes through the roof. She’s a gun. Fabulous stuff! Usual suspects were great - Paxxie, Daisy, Lauren Pearce, Libby Birch, Tyla Hanks, Eliza McNamara. Go Freo, and let’s get 40,000 at the G!!!!

Totally agree Webber.
Lightning quick and finishes beautifully at top pace.

On the umpiring: why doesn’t the AFLW draw from the same pool of umpires as the blokes? Not that the men’s umpires are always that good either, but if the AFLW is the elite competition, they should have access to the supposed best umpires in the business right?

AFLW umpires is the their down from AFL but above league level for umpires (these are the one's coming through the system into the afl in the future).  I have a feeling they umpire it differently due to the skill of the girls competition. Many things that would be are int he AFL are not paid in the AFLW, which makes it frustrating to watch.  It like they give them more time due to different skill levels.  Not that they should.

Really glad I went. Smallish crowd, but great energy.

And it was fantastic that the team were able to spend time on the ground after tge win, such it up and engage with the fans

Appalling standard of umpiring

The weather didn’t help. Horrible day to go outside.

Yeah, the whole interpretation of holding the ball, incorrect disposal seems to be non existent. You'd wonder if it's a worthwhile tactic for Mick to tell the team to just try and bust through tackles because you're never penalised for holding or dropping the ball. I think we got our first free for incorrect disposal by a Brisbane player with a minute to go in the game.

Anyways, super proud of the girls. A great grinding win.

I really think the women can draw in a whole group of young fans if we promote them properly. It's a different standard of footy but still enthralling to watch.

Go Dees

Still flying high, go Dees! Some incredible efforts in this game and a nailbiting finish - although, of course, never in doubt!

I moved on from the poor umpire about three seasons ago but understand why it annoys newcomers. And like many decisions in AFLW, the MCG venue for today was short-term pain for long-term gain.

Sweet Grand Final dreams, Demonlanders!

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
