POSTGAME : Rd 18 vs Port Adelaide



Recommended Posts

I thought Tomlinson was good, which is significant.  He might be needed next week, even with the likely inclusion of Petty.  If I’m not mistaken, Rick Lever winced when he tried to put his arm around a teammates shoulder during the song.  It was only  a fleeting moment.  I think I’m correct, but obviously hope I’m wrong.

Well I am actually relieved with the win. It is no great surprise we got beaten in the midfield as having Oliver out is like having a giant puncture mark to the chest. Also thaught there were some positives. Kozzie was a bonus and hopefully he can put some more performances like that in for the rest of the year. Tomlinson was surprisingly good today as well. BBB played his best game for the year and hopefully take some confidence out of today. The high kickers in to the forward line should also learn to pass it onto his chest.

He’s gotta be sore after hurting his shoulder like that, but hopefully not injured.

Very few people in history can step into Oliver’s role 

Geez - I never said to have an Oliver impact. Someone who can break even and not get walked over. didn’t think I needed to spell that out. But as Goodwin says , learnings.

Back pocket Brayshaw is the only one

Our second tier mids in Harmes/Sparrow aren't good enough to get close

Brown starting to hit a few straps.Early days but some signs

Got almost 10 marks, which is saying something. Hopefully can expose the Doggies backline next week.

When's the loading end party?

30th July, day after the Freo game 🤞🤞

We were very bursty today. Periods where it looked like we were running in treacle with concrete boots on, then we activated for 5 minutes and put a few goals on the board with high pressure and gut running forward chains. Call it momentum or whatever, but it was a strange one. 

So happy for Kozzy too. Put on an absolute show.

That would really test his aerobic capacity.

And speaking of being petty... 😄

Tommo in Tomald's spot and Petty down back is what I meant.

I'll bring the vino, cheese and Jatz Crackers!

Everything looked so hard, skills were way off. This performance from Kozzie is what it's all about though!

It's odd, Trac and Viney had good games but our midfield was run over to easily.

Rivers and Tomlinson exceptional down back today. Salem solid although i've never seen him kick the ball into the man on the mark before.

Brown showed up for 1 quarter,  we didn't do anything differently to make him play better he just randomly started clunking marks.

Really think we need to run another tall forward, Bedford was nowhere near the ball today. If McDonald is injured surely JVR has a tank to do the running that Brown just can't do.

Really?. Geelong look far better than us at the moment. 

They are playing at their optimum. we are not. If we can hit peak form in September we will beat them. I've no doubt about that

Kozzie was electric, a joy to watch.

Backline very solid. May & Salem can both improve.

Trac, Viney & Lingers all good.

BBB showing positive signs.

Spargo did some good things that led to goals.

Maxy not great but serviceable and will get better!

The two players Demonlanders didn’t want in Bedford almost unsighted and Melksham did a few good things and slowed Alir first half, but he does look slow & fumbly.

All in all take a win against Port team that had a crack, a bit frustrating that they kicked last three goals.

Still happy to win.

We're only equal top!

Equal top and with the stingiest defence in the competition while not having been at our best.

People with better knowledge than me say that defence wins premierships.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
