Two questions 

1.  What’s the tactic of kicking to the forward pockets rather than the central hotspot in front of goal ?….  It’s such a negative “defensive” play and easily stopped (Perhaps explains why we have 50-60 inside 50s yet goal scoring rate of 18-20%) 

2. 90% of the time , Steven May kicks out to 60 metres out , to the pack on the half back flank!!!  So predictable. Question - WHY? …… -( it’s very boring and other sides push numbers and punch it back. - How do other sides vary it , like the Swans who brought to ball to their inside 50 on 5/8 occasions without a Magpie touching it!!! ) 

The thing I wonder about the stats proving both the kick-in to one side, and inside 50 entry to pocket is the “percentage play”, is surely those stats are factoring in an opposition, that doesn’t know exactly where we will go a majority of the time. 

Ie surely mixing it up a bit, allows us to maximise the “percentage play” by having an opposition that can’t setup with near certainty of knowing what we will do?!

FYI although it’s far from clear on the AFL site, betting sites and premium ticketing site all have a pre finals bye for all teams 26th-28th of August, first week of finals 2nd-4th September with no breaks leading to Grand Final Day on 24th September.

I hope this is the case because if we play interstate I want to go and won't be able to if there is no pre-finals bye.

Thanks for reading it out.

When I listen to podcasts I have it in my head what the podcasters look like and its never anything near the reality.

Do you think the three of you would do a podcast together in a the same room and get a photo together and if not have you three caught up at the footy at all through out the year?

This is the only known photo of us.

Remember the Three Stooges? "Soitenly!" - CBS News

We do the podcast remotely. We now use video which makes it easier to give visual cues if someone wants to say something. We have met up a number of times the latest being at last friday's Captain's Run.

I met them at Demons' training last week.

I can assure you that they are very handsome gents !!

Do you just use Zoom/Skype for the video or one of those programs like Zencaster? Would love to know how you get the audio in tip top shape and what mic you use Andy but I know magicians don't reveal their secrets easily.

I will take a photo of my set up when I get home.

We used to use Skype but the audio coming from the other hosts was horrible. We now use zencaster and the audio coming from it is pretty good.

Great listen as usual. Surprised that Binman is still talking up Loading as being such a major factor to our form. There's 1 round to go not 6. Sure we can be fresher but the difference between 1st round of finals and now will be incremental at best.

I look forward to smiling wryly to myself as we swarm all game and power away from a tiring lions in the last 15 minutes of the game.

Oh and i'm going to love the post match review of the game as the Fox 'analysts' fall over themselves to say the dees are back, and do their their level best to walk back their grim predictions of our demise.

Might even get Andy to clip it up and play on next week's show.

I hope we're not 10 goals down at this stage 🤪

I think the 2nd point is a bit overplayed. In the 1st quarter May kicked it to just the left corner of the centre corner square a handful of times which led to inside 50s and overlap run. We have cards up our sleeve.

A +40 point differential to us in the 2nd half this week, and the loading cult will be signing up new  members thick and fast.

We need a new recruiting push. Smashing the lions in the second half will help.

Hey @binman, you guys were discussing the expected weather/ground conditions for Friday night. This is from a Brissie Dees fan. I know their definition of freezing is different to ours, but the dewy grass bit might be true.

The unwavering faith in our ills being predominantly fitness related is impressive. 

I think we stack up well against the Lions so I agree with the predicted result,  but not because our side is an incrementally fresher team than the one that took on Carlton in a brusing affair.

Happy to memorialise, anoint or erect @binman‘s nudey-run onto canvas if he (or anyone who commissions) so wishes. Done nudes before, so shouldn’t be a problem.

Let’s wait and see DemonWA. Your ability to 100% discount it, is equally impressive.

Mmm predominantly - i feel like we have been here before. Words in mouth and all that.

Looks like you are not going to hear me - so hell I'll make it easer for you:

Our form is completely and utterly dependent on loading. Loading is so much the biggest factor that really, it is not even worth discussing others. 

I get it DWA (Demon With Attitude?), you are not part of the cult. That's ok.

Just enjoy the win because we stack up well against the lions and be confident it has nothing to do with being incrementally fresher team than the one that took on Carlton in a bruising affair.

    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
