its amazing what winning games of footy does. Lose today and Gawn foot turns out to be  more of a 6-8 week injury. 

I heard he was dead halfway through the first…

Bowey is struggling? He was perfectly fine tonight. Played his role.

Not struggling, but he’s fumbling some tough ground balls and losing some winnable aerial contests. I think his speed and smarts still give him the edge, but down back there’s at least genuine pressure for spots.

Gawn said he'll be back to play Adelaide I'm backing him in. Out Weideman.

Agree, no change for next week.  As an aside I heard Neal Bullen say on ABC radio after the game that Viney’s speech to the players prior to the game and at half time was inspirational.

Just like Gawney in last year’s GF told the coaches to keep Jacko on the ground in the centre bounces in the 3rd quarter  I wouldn’t put it past him to let Viney speak to the playing group come this GF when we are playing whoever if he thinks it will help the crew.

If Gawn plays I will be disappointed. I love the guy but get him right. Don't take a risk with him.

I wouldn't mind seeing Disco coming back he was good until he got knocked out but Rivers is the obvious choice if we drop bowzer.

If Viney has the slightest niggle rest him until the finals.

He's a clean as Oliver at ground balls as a rule. He didn't nail them last night, but we were rarely caught out defensively after the first quarter, so he executed his role.

Bedford deserves a run of games. 2 very well taken goals, applied pressure and linked well with kossie a few times. 

no changes for me

yep, forward line had a nice balance last night, was good to see the small forwards dancing around the slow Brisbane backline.

Um I dont think Bowey is in the side to win aerial contests. Often he stays out of them.

I think his form of late has been ordinary, perhaps Rivers in.....

Was that a call out to the WINGers club?

Hopefully no change, but slightly worried about how Viney's corky might pull up during the week.

I guess Dunstan in for him if it's needed.

He will be fine.  We have another 9 day break to the next game.

Wild horses and wild bulls couldn't keep him from playing.

Even if Max wants to play I would give him another week off. No change

Yeah, bring him back for the following one vs Geelong.  Because of the bye/fixturing it will be about 3.5 weeks since the injury.

He said a highlight of 2021 was beating Geelong three times!!  Like their feline mascot, they would be hissing and spitting at that comment. 

He won't want to miss a trip to the kittens' playground.  Inflict more hurt.

    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
