It wasn’t so much mistakes, it’s more that they were bordering on flukey with their ball movement . today is a typical Collingwood game, they just beat a bunch of mediocre sides then put on their best game of the year against us. 
 

I reckon the Blues are a red hot chance next week. 

Blues played their Grand Final yesterday, will have nothing left.

Not just collingwood.
They've all lifted when they've played us.
All wanna take down the big dog.
 

So far Geelong and Sydney appear to have the goods to make it to the big dance. The Swans game style won’t hold up on GF day though as it’s not strong in the contest.

The Lions buckle when the heat is on and the Dees look gassed and clueless.

Ginnivan must have the most punch-able head in football.

Hate to be that person, but cannot help myself.

Why would you want to punch anyone!

So what, you don’t like their personality or something. Why violence or the threat of it?

We have a world struggling with accepting diversity. 

I am just amazed that there are still those who hate others.

You don't even know them on a personal basis.

I don't see the joke!

Oh, I see it but it is so tasteless and harmful.

They're just people.

Punchable head does not mean anyone is going to go up to him and punch him. It's like calling someone a d**khead. Their head does not actually LOOK like a d**k, but is a great way to describe their attitude, in a fun, mocking kind of way. 

And in relation to diversity, how about allowing Mr. Steve, who made that comment, the freedom to express HIS view. Or is his view somehow outside your definition of diversity?

I knew the Ginnivans, and I reckon they would laugh their heads off at this stuff, and don't see it as harmful or distasteful, just footy banter.

How hot was that. Has that been payed before this year.

The deliberate rushed?  Doesn’t come up much but that was the correct call.  Took the mark (and he knew it despite claiming he didn’t), so therefore no pressure excuse, then walked it over.  Brain fart by the defender.

Worst umpiring decision of the year. First it was paid a mark, pie player runs over the mark, umpire calls play on, mccartin under immediate pressure & rushes a behind. NOT A FREEKICK! That umpire should be SACKED!

It was both correct and very obvious.  He claimed the mark and was paid the mark.  Then he played on, panicked when the pressure came and walked it over.   Easy free kick call to make.

Normally I'll barrack for the result the suits us best but in this instance i don;t care. I just want to see the pies lose because i'm sick to the back teeth watching them win tight matches

And yes, I hate them as well

Could always donate your back teeth to the Colinwood cheer squad.

mate.. the rule clearly states that you’re allowed to rush a behind if you under immediate pressure. The mark has nothing to do with it.

No.  If you take a mark you have an un-pressured kick to take if you want it.  If you play on and the pressure comes, that’s on you and you lose the get out excuse.  Otherwise we return to the dark old days when rushing behinds was abused terribly.

You gotta love Elliott playing the game of his life last week against us, and then doing stuff all today.

They’re not anywhere near as good a team when they 50/50 their set shots. Far more normal today, against us they couldn’t miss. Still I wish I could see the alternate universe where Gawny kicked all his set shots against the pies. That would’ve been a very different, very fun night I suspect.

McCartin played on, took two steps off his line, was pressured, then took it over the line. Should have been a free kick to Swans because the Pies player ran over the mark, or a behind if the ump did not see that Pies error, a  behind.

Yes it is and has been since they tightened the rule up when it was getting abused by several teams.  Playing on from a kick in, mark or free kick and waiting for the pressure to come then walking over the line is a deliberate free kick.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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
