Fill the ‘G’

The vast majority of supporters around me were fantastic.

I have to say, and this is a criticism I’d gladly tell anyone at the club who’d listen, it’s incredibly difficult to go to our home ground (which we’ve been banned from for 2 years prior) and see the side get beaten in such a comprehensive and consistent manner after half time week in and week out. I know people have been critical of the supporters but each game was so eerily similar I think it’s a lot to ask of supporters for them not to go into their shell and think ‘here we go again’.

The support was great last night

I don't buy the narrative that we are a quiet fanbase. We're just as passionate and noisy as most other clubs (i acknowledge the pies fans are next level). 

And our cheer squad is excellent. I was close to them last night. they sang their hearts out

It was probably 70-30 crowd to us. I thought they were louder than us and I was there. Heard Bucks say same thing post match and he was there.

It's not hard to see why. A combination of a very old demographic and a lot of supporters with hearts in their mouths waiting for the 2nd half fade out.

Maybe I’m being pedantic and these are very small things but they add up and it didn’t feel like a Melbourne Home final to me. Firstly the purple illumination of the exterior of the MCG. I understand why but I personally thought that the tribute done prior to the game was fitting enough and lighting should have been red and blue prior to game and maybe go purple post game. For the second game in a row a supporter in opposition colours tossed the coin. Finally the lion noise after a Brisbane goal. As a club I don’t think we are parochial enough. In no ways does this influence the result of the game but it does influence my feeling of it being a Melbourne home final having gone the last few weeks.

What was with the music after the goals gave me the absolute shi TS. Also the lion roar it was our home game FFS 

Was about to post the same thing. We earn the right for a home final and they play the roar after evey lions goal. Would they do the reverse at an interstate venue for a final? If MFC wanted to support members attending, they could at least send a please explain to the ground or AFL or both. Salt in the wounds!

That bloke worked for CUB. They sell the coin toss as part of the multi million dollar sponsorship packages.

I banged on about this last week but I thought the supporters were great tonight. Decent turnout with 62k and the place was electric at times especially during the 2nd half. Unfortunately the team didn't get the job done but the supporters were fantastic. 👏👏👏

Agree, thought everyone was really gee'd up and when we had those little bursts late they tried to get us over the line. Thought Brissy's fans were pretty good late in the game too which sucked though.

    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

    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
