PODCAST: Rd 21 vs Collingwood



Recommended Posts




I have two topics in mind:

A) Is it worthy give JVR a go this late in the season? At the very least can be an unpredictable player for opposition defenders.

B) Where have our members gone? I sit in the redlegs reserved area, which is supposed to be sold out. Have only missed a couple of home games and not once the bay I sit has been at more than 50 or 60% capacity (the best I have seen were round 1 and last Friday). I feel us as supporters need to do better 🤷🏻‍♂️

Looking forward to the podcast, need some catharsis after last Friday night.

That is annoying to hear, as I tried to get a Family Redlegs membership, but was told they had all sold out, so am down on L1. Which, by the way, pi553d Pies supporters still managed to infiltrate and spill beer over everyone.

I’ve got a couple of questions::

1) Why can’t we handle opposition pressure as well as last year? This was evident in the Pies game which led to massive over hand balling.

2) How are we going to stop fast ball moving sides? The Pies played on 15% more than their average to ensure we couldn’t set our defence which really rattled us. Is this a midfield issue for us?

Who is going to tell Max how to kick a set shot from 20-30m out? He seemed to sort this out and now has reverted to too long a run up, swinging the ball around and hooking out to the right. Is it even worth playing him deep forward at the moment with the yips he has in front of goal? Would we be better off with Jackson deep forward and Max primary ruck?

Regarding the attacking fast ball movement teams that have exposed us, and minimised our defensive weapons. Do you think teams like the pies, swans and cats will be able to execute this in the more contested finals? Or will it just be as simple as whether or not our pressure/tackling etc gets to a high enough level?

The Pies were in constant movement even when switching across ground they'd take the mark and keep moving so our zone defence never got a chance to set. We need to push up on them and when they switch/rebound out of defence make them go back over the mark and take their kick.

If/when we face Collingwood again in September what do we need to do differently to get the win. 0/2 so far, 3rd time lucky?

Play a higher zone off the kick out and lay more forward 50 tackles. 😉

Hey guys, love the podcast and the website. I don't post much but I read almost everything on Demonland and I listen to the podcast each week.

Just wanted to get your thoughts on the comments Ed Langdon made on radio the day before the match. As you well know he labelled the Pies a one trick pony and "all Duck, No Dinner".

Comments like this were always going to be used as motivation against him and us. What do you think about those comments?

I'll need more than that. I might need an exorcism.

Not sure how many we laid, but at least 4 should have been rewarded. But you know, umpires.

For me they were not that big of a deal and the Pies took it as an insult.

On top of that their thuggery at the start and during the match is unwarranted. They have anger management issues and umpires shouldn't condone unnecessary violence.

We had a chance to go over 4 goals up when Bayley had that close range snap that he missed and a 2 goal turnaround followed cutting the margin to 17 at HT. We had a 3 goal lead late in the 3rd quarter with yet another chance to consolidate (can't remember who missed) but the Pies ended up snatching two late goals to pull it back to single figures at the last change giving themselves a real chance. The game really felt like one where we would threaten to break it open but Collingwood would somehow minimise the damage with a 50-50 chance turned into a goal and this kept them in touch. 

It's happened a lot this season, there's been multiple games where a series of things needed to happen for us to lose the game from the seemingly winnable position we've had. Do we need to take a good look at why this is the case? Possibly on the mental side? If this was any other team I feel like the media would be branding us 'chokers' every week.

Whether they should have been awarded or not in another game is questionable but in the context of the frees award to the pies directly in front of their goals they most definitely should have been awarded.

Many clubs are using their subs, whether above board or not, to their advantage bringing on fresh legs late in the game.

The Pies subbed out the underperforming Hoskin-Elliot.

We seem to be on of those good guys clubs that haven't used this loophole. Do you think the Demons should have "found an injury" and perhaps substituted James Harmes into the game to give us some fresh legs?

Don't forget there was also the no calls on some of our tackling in our back 50.

There was one goal that came directly from Ginivan dropping the ball while being tackled that was then picked by a Pies player and kicked a goal.

Question from Andrew H from the Demonland Facebook Page Messenger:

Question for Pod if able. Do you think Geelong will be at a disadvantage playing finals on the MCG rather than their home ground.

    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
