We’re finishing INSIDE of the Top Four

About time for a bit of balance.

Gee, we would want to click. 

Brissy at their home. We are similar, in that, the style of momentum shifts in the game.

Fight for 4 quarters, a little like how we did against Blue, but from the front and we win.

Go Dees.

Win.  Likely play Sydney in Sydney. Double chance 
Lose. Likely play Tigers at the MCG. Elimination final. 

Big stakes aren’t they. Tiges at the G is not a game I’d be looking forward to. lose and we well could be out in week 1. Gotta come with all guns firing in this one.

Why wouldn't we finish top 4 we have no fear of Brisbane. It's a 50\50 game at worst.

Harmes comes in and shuts down Neale. Who wins their clearances?

we have the wood on them. Bring the intensity and we should win. Hopefully by 30pts and sneak past the swannies into 2nd spot!

We will win.

Brisbane are down hill skiers who fall to water when the pressure goes up. They have lost to Essendon, got run over by Richmond, almost got run over by Carlton and should have lost to the Saints in recent weeks.

Plus I just can't take a team with Daniher in it seriously.

Harmes did a number on Neale last time which is why I think he comes in. Don't know who goes out tho

The fact that we are even still 3rd at this point is pretty astounding. Having played 5 top 5 teams since round 15 it has been an incredibly difficult draw in the second half of the season. The more I look at it the more I realise how unlucky we've been with our fixture this year.

I can't help but think what would have been if we had played Freo and Sydney during rounds 1-8, we would have blown them away imo. Then, had we faced Essendon, GWS or the suns during our heavy midseason loading which obviously heavily affected our 3 performances before the bye, I think we well could have won them too.

We could have potentially been 12-0 before our QB clash and gone into the bye sitting on top with a 12W-1L record. No-one would be worrying about potentially dropping out of the top 4....

I hate it how some stupid journos keep bringing up the "they've lost 6 of their last 11 games" narrative and use that to compare us to the formline of Geelong, Sydney, Brisbane or even Collingwood. They have had a pathetically easy fixture since r12 or even after the bye so it's really hard to properly assess or compare the dees to the other top 6 sides.

Based on the "premiership" metrics where we sit 2nd overall, our interstate record, our wood over Brisbane and Brisbane's struggling form over the last month even against poor opposition, I have zero doubt we will win on friday, so get pumped everyone.

I hope we win, cos not finishing top 4 after 10-0 is poor.

No matter what happens from. Here they must review the hell out of the “loading” period and make sure this [censored] is never repeated. 
Im hoping for some shake up at selection and a real edge, anything less and we get belted. We go in with a tough ferocious attitude and kick semi straight we win.

It's been big games one after the other and more to come

I'm very bullish about this one

The manner of the Carlton win will energise us and the Lions just can't get it done when the chips are done. 

We'll finish 3rd and head to Sydney for the QF. And I'll be confident about that game as well

These are great times to be a Dees supporter

I don't think you quite understand what loading is but that's fine, it was one of the main reasons we were so dominant in the finals last year and won the flag.

Imo we didn't play enough top teams from rounds 1-10. We were incredibly unlucky to come up against mostly good teams in the 2nd half of the season. Unfortunately you can't choose the fixture and who you come up against at what point in the season...

I agree we would have wasted that start, but weren’t that good tbh. The losing/loading period does need to be reviewed but selection doesnt need shaking up. 

They need to go in with what we have and get our confidence and trust going and pressure and move the ball accordingly.

The Cats seem to.

Well they had Hocking doing their work and now Brad Scott does it. Be nice to have that level of influence. Similar to what Eddie had over the fixture.

Much has been made of the LIons record at home ,  won 16 or their last 18 , yadda, yadda, yadda......  as per AFL 360 last night. Classic Leigh Montagna skim over data, with no in-depth.

Lets look at that record for this season.

Beat only 2 teams in top 8 at home. Their 9 wins this season were all teams like north, suns, eagles, bombers for gawd's sake. etc. 

Their 2 losses were April 14 against the Pies who would have overrun them with 2 more minutes to play

And the Blues 2 weeks ago, and we all know what that means. 

Their Gabba advantage is an illusion . 

I'm not worried now and i like this thread.

. We're interstate champions with 12 straight wins on the road to now.

    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
