GAMEDAY: Rd 22 vs Carlton

Recommended Posts

BBB is contesting and getting to where he needs to.

But the strength of his contests has been poor. No explosion and one arm contests do not make for good forward craft.

Melky is looking great. Remember a few years ago that he got the highest SuperCoach score recorded against Carlton? Good times.

Forget Grundy.

Do whatever it takes to buy a genuine key forward.

Our forward line is a mess.

100% bank the cash and make a huge play for one of these Blues boys

Every time Saad gets the ball, we need to absolutely smash him, even if it means a free or two. he's so soft and it really seems to rattle him

Did anyone see what the free

 down the ground that resulted in frittata goal was for. Did not see it here at the ground. And it’s bloody cold freezings

We would have to be the worst in the league at getting back of the man on the mark and being the slowest to move the ball from a mark. Not many players would get a pass mark at this stage but where in front and hopefully find something in the second half.

Commentators gloating over a "great tight contest". I reckon it has been horrible to watch. Tacklefest, followed by Dees bombing it into the forward line with BBB attempting to mark with 1 hand, followed by more tackling, Blues kick a horrible blind ball to half forward, Dees intercept... rinse and repeat.

Well done Melksham. Pittonet is a dill. We are a better team but need to CAPITALISE.

Why was that “a gift” for fritta, he marked it anyway… 

much happier about this game than the Collingwood and dogs games, blues without their stars are clearly playing as many tagging/negating roles as possible. 

They won’t be able to keep it up the whole game. I think we will break away and win by 40+ keeping the blues to under 50 points

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    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.
