GAMEDAY: Rd 09 vs West Coast



Recommended Posts


  • Demonland changed the title to GAMEDAY: Rd 09 vs West Coast

Just had a look on Big Footy and Wet Toast supporters are concerned that the rest of the AFL look at their team as tanking. The thought had crossed my mind as some of their selections are surprising.

I’m in Fiji currently and am considering a weekly sub to WatchAFL to watch it but all the reviews I’ve read bemoan the quality of the stream. Can anyone confirm whether it’s worth it?

I use WatchAFL to watch every game in the UK and it’s fine for me. Might be more of an internet quality issue than an app issue

The all-conquering Melbourne Storm were stomped on by the Penrith Panthers last night after some monster wins. Beware Melbourne!

In all fairness, that game was 1 vs 2, not 1 vs 18 and the Storm had injury problems.

Hopefully all our Perth brethren can get along to see the boys run around on the hallowed turf of Optus

Eagles a shambles, we're chugging along nicely

As much as i'd like to see an Eagles bloodbath, it's not our style

Dees by 40 points

Assuming you have a decent internet connection, yes, it’s absolutely worth it.  I’ve been a subscribers for several years.

… as well as running through the banner!

*cough* I personally cut out all of the Ts and Es and the K and the exclamation mark, including the dot, which is not really a dot, more the size of a dinner plate. *cough*
Long cough right there. I needa quit smoking. 😁

Started work early so I could make the matinee down at John Foord Oval with Corowa taking on Yarrawonga. Despite Corowas improvement (only falling 2 points shirt of Albury, and should have won on expected score) I think Yarra will be to tough an ask.

 

Leg of lamb on the rotisserie and a fat cuban I'll be round in the forward pocket scoreboard end if anyone's hungry.

A fat Cuban? Is his name Fidel?

When I was in Fiji in 2017 we were playing Carlton and it was close. The stream was reliable for the whole match except for the last 2 minutes when the game was in the balance and it was a goal the difference. The steam was buffering and the hotel internet went to [censored]. I couldn’t even get the score online for about 5 minutes after the match. 

Apparently we kicked a goal and won by 8 points. 

I’d put the blame on Fiji’s internet infrastructure in 2017 rather than WatchAFL.

Apart from that it was great.

I had a similar experience in round 13 2014. I was also in Fiji.

Essendon vs Demons. Game was superclose. My connection came back for 30seconds as I watched the ball move from half back, up to Salem who marked 20meters out. 

Connection goes down again and I know it's going to take 3 minutes to buffer again but I didn't care. I knew Salem was a good kick and would kick it.

This is the most weird Gameday thread I’ve ever read …….... I hope it’s not a portent of events at Optus Stadium this evening!

I can’t see the Eagles challenging our beloved Dees, that is, unless some greater power intervenes with thunder and lightening, or some such ………… but even then, knowing the Dees as we do, I’m sure we would ‘find a way’!

Another regulation ‘Melbourne’ win coming up, with a margin between 40 and 60 points, I reckon.

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca

    NIGHTMARES OF NARRM by Whispering Jack

    Narrm Time has arrived in our city as the Melbourne Football Club takes the name Narrm Football Club as part of the 2022 AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round. This week will see the reigning premier pay respect to the region the club calls home — the land of the Wurundjeri people and their culture, language and memory. The team will wear its indigenous guernsey designed by Wurundjeri/Dja Dja Wurrung artist Ky-ya Nicholson Ward and what better way to wear it than with a win over North Melbourne Football C

    WESTERN SUNSET by George on the Outer

    It was the top of the table Demons who inflicted their highest ever defeat of the Eagles, thereby ensuring that the sun has finally set on their long dynasty out West.  The final margin was 74 points but it was the final quarter barrage of seven goals which definitively signalled to the meagre West Coast opposition and supporters exactly who was in control.  That was after a similar six goal to one opening quarter, but hey … why not boo and complain about every decision that went aga

    ON THE RAMPAGE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons had it easy on a windy day under sunny skies at the home of the VFL Kangaroos at Arden Street on Sunday. They caught the hapless Roos who were badly depleted by injury on the hop and disposed of them with little trouble. It was the second time in consecutive seasons that Casey inflicted a 100 plus points defeat on the Roos who had no answers for an opponent on the rampage. When the game started, Casey was without three important forward line components in Mitch Brown, Ka

    RISING TO PHOENIX by William from West Perth

    On Sunday, when the Melbourne Football Club returns to the scene of the club’s most famous victory of the 21st Century, the feeling out there on the ground will most certainly be different. The dying moments of the night of 25 September, 2021 at Optus Stadium marked a team rising to the level of a Phoenix, bathing in the cheers and adulation from an adoring crowd in the wake of their premiership victory after so many years of hardship and desolation. This time around they can expect a main

    TO THE SWORD by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons closed off their game against the Southport Sharks with a comfortable 30-point win off the back of a monster six goal opening term in which they put the Southport Sharks to the sword and kept them scoreless.  Despite losing Toby Bedford to AFL medical sub duty, Majak Daw and Bailey Laurie, the Demons still fielded a strong list of 13 MFC players and also managed to blood two more local newcomers in Tyler Edwards and Tom Macrae after adding four debutants last week.

    NO HEAVEN FOR SAINTS by George on the Outer

    Just when St.Kilda thought it was heading toward Saintly Heaven in Season 2022, it was brought crashing to earth quickly by the ruthless Demons machine. It wasn’t a long drawn out process before the Saints discovered how fragile they were. The Demons simply took the game apart in the first quarter piling on four goals against a paltry three  behinds. Even when Membrey was going to score a major right on the ¼ time bell from 15m out in front, he failed to bypass the outstretched hands of Har

    COVID PROOF FENCE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne fans breathed a sigh of relief last Saturday when their team managed to beat Hawthorn and the Covid19 outbreak that left it without coach Simon Goodwin and five premiership players – Luke Jackson, Kysaiah Pickett, Tom Sparrow, Harrison Petty and Alex Neal-Bullen. The 10-point win was meritorious not just because the Demons overcame the loss of the coach and key players but also due to the way in which they survived the tension surrounding the club in the 72 hours leading up to the

    YIPS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a bout of goal kicking yips and a last quarter Box Hill Hawks comeback to record a thrilling 7 point away from home victory on Sunday. With senior affiliate Melbourne fighting a Covid breakout and some injury concerns to their listed players, Casey turned to youth and called up locals Zac Andrewartha, Matthew Johnson and Harvey Neocleous to join Matt Buntine, a local product who was part of the inaugural GWS Giants list.  The team made a slow start but took co

    DEPLETED NOT DEFEATED by George on the Outer

    With Covid 19 ravaging the club, forcing the absence of five players from last week and some more premiership players still sidelined or returning after isolating, it was certainly a depleted Melbourne side that turned up to front Hawthorn in their Round 7 match up at the MCG. Normally, when a team loses ¼ of its soldiers, you would expect a less than favourable result but after the Hawks opened up a 2 goal lead in the opening minutes (and indeed, it could have been more) the Demon machine

    NO COMEBACKS by The Oracle

    Q:  How do the Hawks come back after being 32-0 early, leading at every interval and then conceding nine goals in the last quarter to lose to the Swans by 41 points in the comfort and safety of their second home down in Launceston? A:  If they’re playing the Demons at the G off a five-day break, there are no comebacks. They simply won’t come back! That’s the short form preview of the Melbourne v Hawthorn match up at the Home of Football this weekend. That is not to dismiss the you
