POSTGAME : Rd 19 vs Western Bulldogs

No one to blame but ourselves. Some very costly errors and name someone that stood up to their desperation in the second half. Very disappointing to walk out of there with a loss.

50 points conceded beyond our 60 point target. Eerily similar to sane round last year, dead on our feet and overrun at the end. The difference this year is we're not as healthy and settled, so some huge weeks ahead if we're to be dangerous in September.

Dogs were the better team. Much hungrier than us. Particularly second half

We’re not the same team defensively this year. Not sure why.

No comment about the umpires

Let's re-group and go again next week

Go Dees

Time to not only send a please explain to the umpriing department but make a video of it public. Every 50/50 decision went the dogs way. It was the most indisputably biased display in a long time and the club needs to act. The umpires beat us, not the dogs.

22 to 13 TKO

Seriously at what point is something done about it. It’s beyond a joke now. I saw a dozen throws HTB , DTB and none of them were paid. Not 1. 
 

We are not undisciplined , but the dogs seem to get the run every week without fail.

We lost the game through some poor coaching and play - obviously tired after heat last week but play a helter skelter game all night too the point it caught up with us, poor thinking

got too also wonder at what point do you man up on a player that kicks 5 goals on you ?

Absolute disgrace, a game that should have been won, remind me who is the midfield coach is we were lucky Trelor went off the ground subed out, once the dogs tightened up in the backline they knew we only going to go down one side of the ground again, unless they start to change course we will struggle to win the flag playing this way.

Put Jackson in cotton wool for the rest of the year so Freo don't cold feet

Well done to Weid for having a good game but not sure how he goes missing for such long patches without even seeing him (and why Goodwin plays our only key forward for only 72% game time)

To conclude, shoot Harmes out of a cannon

Putrid. We could easily lose the next 4 games if we can’t even beat the Dogs. We are in horrible form. 
Gawn is playing hurt and it’s costing us. Apart from Oliver and Petty, we haven’t had one player this year play good consistent footy and deliver week in week out. We are missing the spark and hunger that got us the flag last year.

If Kozzy kicked the last opportunity we probably would have won.

Our forward line was a shambles in the 2nd half.

So Brisbane and Geelong both get challenged and manage to win. 


Melbourne lead for most of the game and then chuck it. Give it up. We’re not doing anything this year but making up the numbers.

Correct way off the pace play one final and put finish 8 th.   The loss is dedicated to May.  Mouths off at team mates   I bet a few cannot stand him. Then makes a Clanger that just cost top 4.      We will one more. 14 wins and out first week.   Maybe next year we can hit top form again.     They can never take last year off us buts this hurts after winning 1 st ten games.   Freo at freo loss the golf th a loss. Possible Carlton one maybe.     Brisbane at Brisbane loss.

What TF was Gawn thinking grabbing the ball out of the ruck on the flank... dumb, dumb, dumb. Too many stupid errors made to have won that.

On the other hand, would have been a great game to watch for neutral fans and Jamarra's goal at the end was epic.

    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

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
