2 carlton supporting morons sitting next to me keep asking, "where are all your supporters?" and one even just made a joke about the Snow

I was like "Mate, you realise your season is hanging by a thread here right?"

Fritsch and Melk need to start leading. With no movement, the only option for our midfield is to aim long for BBB who is surrounded by 3 defenders. And one of Spargo and Kozzie needs to rove the back of the pack where Saad is floating unattended.

I’d just go all chips in on Weid for the last few weeks. Brown isn’t the answer. Him making a contest but winning the ground ball is mutually exclusive. Never seen a worser a player when the ball hits the ground.

We just look slow. In all aspects: Running, reaction time, seeing options. When we won the flag we looked a step ahead of the game and right now it looks like everything is coming from sheer hard work. There are some crappy games on the board from most of our players, at this stage I'd only be giving Gus votes.

How do we get Brown into the game? Gonna be hard considering he's always taking the best defender right now. Need to kick to space and run onto it I think. I don't know, it's a tough one 

We need to play on instinct, first option is best. We also need a couple of goals early and the confidence will rise. We are probably not going to hit the form we would like to in this match but we need to squeeze out the win. That is pretty much it. My god we just need the win, please just win it.

Oh the irony if Weid were to lead us to the flag 😆

Brown playing on Young and not taking a mark is a huge worry, he's got him for height, weight, leap and experience, and he's just had a couple of weeks off. there really isn't much excuse for him

I can’t stand our coaching anymore. Even if we win this, bombing long to small forwards like Spargo, with McGovern on him is bloody madness. Kick it low or wide to space. 

We don’t adapt to our selected side at all.

Our handball turnovers must be a world record.

Our disposal is garbage.

We are not a shadow of last year’s side the way we are playing.

Eight minutes left in the second qtr and I watched us switch sides across half back for what seemed like the first time in weeks.

We raced forward and then fluffed it.

I wish we'd had the courage and dare we used to have to switch and run it through the guts quickly.

We seem a shadow of last year's side

Brown has been crunched by 2 or 3 defenders in about 20 contests 

If we're continually going to bomb fwd, someone has to do that job

So many experts on here can't see he's continually bringing the ball to the ground. Has he been outmarked yet?

He needs to run and jump at the ball to be effective. Kicks in need to be up in the air sure, just not into outer space before coming down. As @Bitter but optimisticalways says, a little extra penetration never hurt anyone

Spagbol has time and space with ball in hand, he needs to park his ar$e at the fall of the ball

    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.
