Fill the ‘G’

No excuses next week,  just get there Demonland. I’d like to hear crowd predictions, if Carl v Haw can get 67k  earlier in the season, this game can get a crowd close to 80k.

typically crowds tends to pick up towards the end of the year for finals conmtenders. 75k-80k definitely likely especially if Pies win this week. AFL members is pretty much already sold out. Same for vs Carlton in two weeks.

Cold and showers.

Be fantastic to have full house except for the fact that you may end up next to a Filth supporter....particularly in the AFL members.

I think we end up getting 75K which would be a fantastic effort.

The last time we played a home game against Collingwood that wasn't Queens Birthday was in 2019 and we got just 31,000.

I’m sure we all remember the Filth booing Oliver when he got BOG against the Pies (40 odd possessions, great many contested) and that little piece of excrement Ginnivan, mouthing off at Gawn when he got injured, not to mention how all he seems to try and do is drop his knees and milk the free kicks.  Business end of the season now, bring it on.
Our lads said they looked forward to try and get the job done in front of big crowds this year and are fulfilling their end of the bargain. We have one job to do, turn up and make some bloody noise GO DEES!!

We owe it to the boys. Rain hail or shine, turn up.

 

Yes! We need as many Dees fans in attendance as possible. It’s gonna be quite the challenge to drown out their fans. But we can do it! We just need our fans to show up like never before.

Exactly, get on board everyone! The slopes will still be there on the weekend, get to the G on Fri and let your inner demon out!

If you're planning on stocking up on footy snacks before going to the game or looking to buy some waterproofs or winter woollies, avoid the supermarket in Collingwood whatever you do.

This is what happened to me when I popped in earlier this morning.

I got reserved seats for this and the Carlton game the day they released them. So annoyed at myself for not buying a reserved members seat for the year (and GF guarantee). Didn’t know if I’d be in Melbourne all year with work, and how covid would impact. 

Turns out I’ve been to almost every game in Melbourne, and paid $50 to reserve a seat at about 6 of them.

Agree, it’s OUR home game!  We really have no excuse.  We have been so proud of our growing membership numbers. We (I) bag out on teams like Collingwood, Carlton, Essendon etc.

But at the end of the day actions speak louder than words. Turn up and make some bloody noise.  I hate being out numbered and out noised at our home games.

You won't wanna miss this one.

Biggest Demons v Pies game since the 88 Semi Final.

2nd v 3rd. Friday night. Round 21. Should be a massive crowd. And we get to feed them some humble pie 😝

    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

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
