POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs Fremantle


Demonland

Recommended Posts

We were comprehensively outplayed by a very good team, with one of our best and most crucial players injured in the first quarter, and his key lieutenant also playing hurt. If that's how we go down then so be it - I'd prefer that than being beaten by a pus side because of our own inaccuracy or something like that. It's why it's so important to break away and bank wins whenever you can, because there will be times when you can't.

We had to taste defeat again eventually. Still tastes like poo; one serve of victory next week please.

The writing was on the wall. Struggled with momentum vs North and Eagles, made them look like the 2013 Hawks at times. As soon as a decent team shows up we get smacked, being inaccurate was no surprise.

 

Whilst getting wins on paper we have poor connection inside 50 and inconsistency.

 

Now with some decent teams coming up the MFC can no longer just show up, scratch a win and everyone on here act like 2 flags in a row is happening

A terrible day from start to finish. 
Don’t want to panic but last year we didn’t lose to a single top 8 side. This year we’ve only played 2 really good sides and Freo has not just beat us, they smashed us. 
 

So disappointed in so many of our players. Trac was embarrassingly poor. If he’s injured to the point where he can’t chase he needs to have time off. Brown and Weideman a disaster today. Backline had a complete meltdown without May. Smashed in the air. Smashed at ground level. Really bad day.

What a demolition in that 2nd half Freo were scintillating - very reminiscent of us in the GF.

Hopefully the coaches pick this one apart because this wasn't like our losses last year, Longmuir completely outdid us. TMac, May, Salem and Langdon back help but it doesn't help us around the ball and it doesn't fix our contested marking (TMac and May help but don't fix it).

Interested to see how we rebound next week likely without May.

Freo did a Melbourne on us. They were excellent particularly in the third quarter. Superb midfield effort, tackling pressure, solid defensively and their forwards fired when needed. Deserving winners

No shame losing today. Just wasn’t our day. Injuries finally caught up with us and our defence for once was off. Its been a brilliant run but it couldn’t last forever

Let’s regroup and beat the Swans next week

Go Dees

This has been coming for a long time, but ugh, seriously I'm struggling to find anything positive from today's game.

It's a loss we need to have, some of the boys need a kick up the pants, and the natural motivation you can only really get when you lose and have to start chasing again. We were hunted tonight. 

We need to reset, and get back to hunting others, for 4 quarters. It's been a long time since we did that and there are some tough games coming up so we'll need it.

Fremantle is a very good team.

They played their brand of football and beat us without having to change.  They’ll struggle to play that well every week, but on their day they’ll [censored] anyone.

Not everyone is acting like 2 flags in a row is happening but their are some and a lot of others who can lay claim to the arrogant supporter type.

    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

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    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
