Recommended Posts

Gawn - willed to win

Viney - great first half

Salem - almost a liability 

Rivers - not always reliable 

Lever - held his opponent 

Petty - outstanding most game

Sparrow - was not sighted

May - strength and application 

Jordon - not moving freely 

Oliver - class and input 

Langdon - limited since injury

Brayshaw - prolific and courageous 

Fritsch - career worst game 

Neal-Bullen - was rarely sighted 

Spargo- another uninvolved performance 

Brown - saved by goal

Pickett - hero but limited

Petracca - not as dynamic 

Jackson - just a game

Hibberd - loose but important 

Melksham - only winning forward 

Hunt - great last quarter

I think the praise for Melk could be higher. It wasn’t just the 4 he kicked. He started to look like the player in 2018 who was so crucial in setting up our forward fifty forays.

He also gave Kozzie the ball for the winning kick. He actually could have had 7. Missed 2 and was robbed of a mark late in the game 30 out.

Wow - I watched another game as well -

Salem - Fritsch both played well - the balance were competitive including Brown Spargo Langdon and most others you bagged - Watch the replay ! Slowly !,

Fritsch played well.!! . No. No. No 
4 disposals. 1 goal 1 kick (both from the down the field free kick on 1/2time). 3 handballs (I think two to Carlton players) 8 tackles but that’s because he was always second or behind or trying to chase. 

I love Fritta and he always will be a star. But he was off tonight.

I don't a mind a bailey fristsch game with 1 goal 8 tackles

 

I’d prefer eight goals and one tackle.

Forwards are there to kick goals (something we struggle to do now) so the obsession with forward tackles for a player like Fritsch is weird to me.

Our forward line has been hugely critiqued for a lack of forward pressure.

Indeed, Fritta was off and didn't kick his usual handful of goals. Instead he knuckled down and applied plenty of pressure. Would love for him to kick a bag every week but he has shown improvements to his game when he can't manage to get involved on the scoreboard.

Fritsch is an impact player like in the gf. when he gets on a run hard to stop but can go missing for the odd quarter

    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
