POSTMATCH: Rd 22 vs Carlton


Demonland

Recommended Posts

We kicked a goal after the siren against Geelong in R23 last year and then steamrolled through the finals, this year we kick a goal with 13secs left in R22 to win a crucial game, now we’re going to steamroll through 4 more games for back to back flags. 😉

Wow now that was a game for the ages. Carlton had everything to play for and we still beat them. No doubt they have us their all and we still won. So many games we’ve lost like this and for once we beat them. 
Melksham, Kozzie were back in form. I was a bit worried about a town at the start but he came good when we needed him. Now we’ve shown we can win when all hope seems lost. So proud of the boys tonight. Well done ❤️

Reckon Jayden Hunt is the only reason we won that game and it was due to a bit of dare - be nice if collectively we could employ that mindset across more than the last quarter.

It was funny, May said after the game "the pressure came off us once we got behind at the end and we started attacking"

That is our brand. We need to play four quarters of hard running attacking football. We didn't for most of the game. It was slow and predictable.

Such mixed feelings.

I'm really happy we won. I loved Kozzies trash talking at the end just as much as the goal.

Petty is just a mountain down back.

Melksham and Hunt, who woulda thunk?

I'm off to the Gabba next week. We have so much work to do. Hopefully this win will give us belief to start playing daring exhilarating football again.

It was an amazing and completely frustrating game.

I reckon we're playing at 70 percent of our capability.

A big win next week would restore my faith.

Geelong are looking ominous. We need to take another step up next week.

I mean come on. We're prepped for the finals after this run of high-end matches that's for sure.

Meanwhile Geelong have a series of soft games which will not prepare them for finals footy. It happened to them a few years ago too.

Confession time. 3 minutes to go I got up and said "we're done, we can't do it from here. We've lost all our close ones this year". Well, bugger me.

That was as close to a final as you will get. Not a great spectacle, but as tough as hell. Both sides will be very sore over the next 2 days. 

Delighted, shocked, annoyed, Exhiirated. 

I left my seat and headed to the exit but waits and saw a Lazarus style revival.

Carlton threw everything at us, we won.

 

BBB, please remember, you have two hands

Thats the thing I've noticed with our forwards we are constantly bombing the ball forward to a stagnant forward  who has 2 or 3 defenders to compete with, this has to be game plan related did not notice 1 leading forward all night. When BBB is able to run and jump he takes the mark and goals otherwise he is just trying to bring the ball to ground. I think we need to adjust our methods going i50

Egg on my face right now. Put my hand up and openly admit I got it wrong with the Melksham selection.

I've bashed him hard this year but the last few weeks he's completely changed his game to the point where he's important member.

Sorry Melky, you were [censored] unreal tonight.

Yawn. You do this all the time. How about you just stop bagging Melbourne players all the time?

Hamish McLaughlin just openly admitted that he was barracking for us to kick a point so that it guaranteed Carlton a spot in the finals.

Hey Hamish, how about you and Gil [censored] off to an island and never return.

Their island would be beautiful beyond your wildest dreams unfortunately 

Between them and their relatives they have more dough than than many a small nation

We are so lucky to have Jack Viney in this team. 
The bloke is a beast that scares the absolute s**t out of the opposition.

Not winning it this year is a bust

We must have got flogged based on all the comments with the same sentiment as this. We are up to our eyeballs in this Premiership race. Confidence and momentum are a wonderful thing. As is the fact that we have three undeniable champions in our team.

My God there are some sad sacks here.

We have lost all the games until tonite where we have been in it in the last quarter. Finally we nailed one so lets hope that they can get a lift in confidence.

I’ll happily take the 4 points, although it feels like we stole it.

we’re just so predictable over the past 10-12 rounds, we have lost all our offensive dare, Second to the ball, hate to say it but soft at the contest at times tonight.

unless we’re about to hit a switch but we’re struggling under the pressure of being reigning premiers it feels.

I’ll be cheering on at the Gabba, let’s hope some offensive is found during the week.

it would be nice to kick it to BBB on the lead just once and not to him with 3 defenders.

Don’t expect a response any time soon Nashy. 
Called @dazzledavey36 out last week and have been ear-bashed by crickets since. 🤣

c’mon Dazz…. You know I’m not having a crack but rather curiosity about how you answer this. 
Viney should’ve been traded a few years ago though hey?

    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.
