She loved it at first sight. Although for a relatively recent arrival to the country (she does her citizenship ceremony on Tuesday) she really has developed a mental disorder when cheering for the Dees. I swear she would physically harm anyone in our house who spoke negatively against the Dees on game day.

.......aaaand so I will do the right thing just as soon as it is listed in her size on the Demon shop. Cos, you know, i don't want to die just yet.

She sounds like the kind of person this country needs a lot more of!

Yep - that about covers it. Something rib related is the result.

Ta.  Watched the game (and the tackle) but news on the injury was limited.  Hope the red vest was a precaution.

We were in cruise control the whole game. I had no worries throughout the game and was just waiting for us to put a foot down. Players knew it also and were just wanting to bank the win and move on.

We could have won by more had it been for accurate kicking but it is what it is.

Really big test next week. Hope Viney and Langdon are good to go.

A few players are out of form which is a bit concerning..

I thought North played a very spiteful game. If we come up against a team that plays tough and spiteful and plays with far greater skill than North we will be really tested.

 The hit on Langdon was right in front of me and the stuffing was knocked out of him. Whilst the kick for goal was taken Clayton ran over to him and looked like he was asking how he was and Ed just put his head down and Clayton wrapped both arms around him. It didn’t look good. We need Ed to play next week. We missed his pace and run today.

Thank goodness next week we are at MCG and not in WA. We need to lift.

I was at the ground today and I sat myself behind the Melbourne goals in the final quarter. The kangaroo defenders were taking it in turns to block Max out of marking contests and after succeeding 3 times the umpires penalised them the 4th time.

Gross cheating by North who could do nothing else

Personally I felt it was fair and just hard, if the shoe was on the other foot I reckon most would say it was good attack. 

Pickett loves doing tackles like that as well, just a bit of bad luck for Linger.

I tend to agree. The head is sacrosanct but the ribs are fair game. 
 

He got the free which is just about what it is worth. 
 

If it was concussion, then it’s 2 weeks.

Someone should tell Jackson that when he gets a mark or free and he doesn’t yet have the ball he should run back from the mark. He doesn’t far too often. Sometimes he even goes forward of the mark.  Result is he loses options for a quick kick or playing on beyond the statue on the mark

I think the entire game plan was to negate. It was a bit of a shame they didn’t take it on more. Those dinky kicks from HB are very much Geelong like and we know that brand doesn’t stand up.

I think Noble is in a bit of trouble tbh - Every rebuilding team should be modelling their game on ours (defensive) in the first few years (ala Roos) and build offense from there. They play a different style each week - today was one-on-one and uncontested.  Two things you don’t see in finals footy.

And most were Melbourne supporters. 

Still not good enough.

We have 60k members and yet could only bring in 13k for today.

I made the 4 1/2 trip down to watch the game and the atmosphere was pathetic.

    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
