GAMEDAY: Rd 20 vs Fremantle



Recommended Posts



3.12am and I can't sleep - and the Gameday thread is already up!  Gotta love Demonland!

Go Dees - get the job done and the remaining games will look a whole lot less formidable!

Confident going into this.

The key focus over the week would have been defence and pressure!

If ever there was a season defining game it would be this.

An AFL game played on an oval which will have an extremely dangerous surface! MADNESS!

Win or lose, It might be season defining for both teams, if it's an epic tussle that proves Freo (and us) have very strong premiership credentials.

It would be awesome to smash them and begin a campaign of demolition again, but the neutral in me kind of wants an epic match of the year contest where both clubs play a brand of ruthless defensive pressure to the death, that makes Geelong and their media sycophants [censored] themselves about another prelim disappointment. Carn the Doggies at GMHBA too!

I’m bizarrely confident about tonight’s game although I could sleep much. 

Only 14 hours til first (recalled) bounce!

I want to see pressure, intensity and desperation. A return to our 2021 brand

And some inside F50 tackles please

The march to the flag starts tonight

I'm buoyed by the news of Brayshaw's re-signing and hope the players have had a similar boost.

With no evidence at all to back me up, I just feel that a corner has been turned and we'll win tonight in the first step towards a strong finals run.

That first line says it all. Bring that, and we win this and it sets us up for the next 3. If we don't, then it says a lot about our chances from here.

Odds watch. 

Opened 1.90 equal favs, which seemed fair enough given the form lines of both sides, the relative ladder positions and the fact the game is on freo's home deck. And surely no-one would be keen to trust us with their money given we are apparently not hungry or ruthless enough

Into 1.86 soon after.

Into 1.80 by Tuesday (even after it was announced bb wasn't playing).

Into 1.77 on Wednesday.

Remarkably, on game day, now into 1.72.

The weather might be a factor, but today's forecast is that whilst plenty of rain will fall today, and so the ground will be slippery, it will clear by the arvo.

I wonder if Lobb is going to be late out?

May drift, but unlikely to get into anything shorter than 1.80.

The pros must really think we will magically rediscover our 'hunger'.

Because being people who make a living out of punting by being hard nosed, unemotional realists put a lot of stock in such nebulous concepts.

Thought I'd randomly check weather radar. Wet deck on a dodgy ground that recently had turf changed.

What could go wrong.

Pros must believe we will suddenly remember how to pressure, run both ways, be sharper with skills, be mentally more ruthless, have greater inside 50 connection. Can’t think of any other factors :))

Play well Demons and lets get a much needed win - if we are to really challenge and go back to back this is the game we need to win

    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
