Great win, but FFS Jaded and the others having a whinge about Brissy getting the last two goals have a good look at yourselves absolutely pathetic 

Wait until you see what Sydney come up with.

I doubt very much as a club we would be happy with conceding some soft goals in the last. 
I would hate to play Sydney at the SCG and so would the club. 

Leave it out. Just destroyed a fellow contender in their home deck. Smiles all round

Are you serious?

(PS not sure about the premise of your argument anyway. We're 7-0 on the road, whilst 5 of our 6 losses this year have been at the G, including to Sydney).

Finals is a different ball game. Not to mention we want the home ground and home crowd advantage. After missing out last year I think we want our fans at the G cheering the boys on.

Players beating the chest together in the room after the game. Jonesy was talking about that on the radio today, he said it was a team thing that the focus was in 2021 keeping the opposition below 68 points

HA HA HA

If they make a movie of this game it will be called "BACKFIRE".

They come out with their hard man act, against guys like Viney, May, Harmes ... none of our guys will shirk a push and shove and even big lumbering old Benny Brown doesn't take a backward step. Even the boy who's still in high school (probably) won't back down from a skirmish.

What did they think was going to happen???

It was good to see in the first two minutes our pressure was on.

And what was this new thing ... low hard forward entries in space to leading forwards? Since when has that been part of football? I congratulate whoever invented that. We should keep doing it.

Hitting our straps at exactly the right time of year.

GO DEMONS!!!

Why it has nothing to do with it, we achieved a win, players reaction with the chest beating means we clearly achieved our target of keeping them below a certain score.

you ever had anything to do with footy at a decent level and when you’re way ahead you start managing your players

Big win

no injuries

top 4

Good night but others always need to whinge

Our last four matches have been against top 8 sides, three of whom have been playing for top 4. How much more different are finals going to be?

Tonight we were underdogs and you yourself acknowledged pre-match it was supposed to be a tight one.

Reacting like this after we've belted our literal contender for 2nd spot is silly.

If we'd just played North, sure, be upset with junk time goals.

    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.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
