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

Of course it was a good night but a bit of the gloss will come off if Sydney edge past us on percentage. Last game of 2017 anyone.

Mighty impressive performance.

Trac was back tonight! Our barometer.

Loved the straight kicking.

Luke Jackson's best game since Gold Coast game.

Beating up Brisbane is a good feeling!

Clarry maybe a Brownlow vote or two?

BBB brilliant.

Hibbo's job on Cameron.

May' physicality!

Hunt great game for four quarters.

Rivers excellent.

Who is mathematically able to work out how much Swans need to win by to overtake us?

Don’t reckon it matters.  Of course would be nice to be there at the G but travel holds no fears.  I think we are the feared again 😀

Well in the end we won 3 of our last 4 which is an excellent result, all things considered.  Pies the only hiccup but we'll have learned a lot from that loss

2 wins on the road against 2 top 4 aspirants as well ... 2 thrashings in fact.  Combined scoreline Freo/Brisbane 13.18 vs 30.20.  Away from home!

We've hit our straps at the right time.  And you need a bit of luck to offset the bad luck.  Close win against the Blues vs injuries to our key personnel at various times

And is that now 12 or 13 wins in a row outside of Victoria? 

We can win anywhere and we look very comfortable outside of the comfort zone. Not sure it exists in the minds of the players.  We are focussed

We are a very confident bunch, nothing intimidates us and our teamwork tonight was fantastic

Great to watch

Great game!

Kozzie a brilliant first half!

Fritta all class!

Neal-Bullen's projectile vomit was like a scene from the exorcist!

Dane Zorko's nasty personal comments to Harry Petty that upset him were pointless and didn't help the Lions one bit.

Anyway, a fantastic win by the Demons!

Onto the finals!

To all the naysayers out there …this is our game. To paraphrase “Binman” … listen to Goody in his pressers …he is or has built a team for finals footy . You don’t play that footy during the year …especially this year as we were also the hunted . Doesn’t mean we will win “back to back” but we will leave everything out there. So proud of that effort tonight & hope the disrespectful media contingent has a good look at themselves . I expect our pessimistic supporter’s will no doubt have heaps of criticism’s but a superb performance Dees 💙❤️

That was bloody fun to watch.

Even when Brisbane kicked those last two goals I wasn't fazed at all.

I reckon we went into conservative mode in the last to save from injuries and happy we did.

Go dees!

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. 

Yes but even if we don't get the G in week 1 we will in weeks 3 & 4 😉😈

We’re the first VIC club to go 7-0 interstate in a season.

(I just made up that stat but I reckon it’s correct)

This post warrants the use of multiple reactions not just the one.

Yeah we lost that game, we won tonight

don’t  compare Oranges and apples, turn your lights off and sit alone wallowing in self pity, whilst the rest of us enjoy the win

Great win. So efficient inside 50. So patient but also brutally quick to space when they could go quick. Melksham is so smart, Kozzie and Fritsch are natural forwards and everyone else did their role well.

A great team performance, everyone is to be commended for their great effort, this is one of the top teams in the competition and we gave them a football lesson. 3 more games like that to take back to back premierships. Disappointed in the commentators, they kept stating that Melbourne was essentially beating up the poor brisbane players and zorko was being harassed constantly. I dont know how many times I saw Zorko tackled put the tackler into a headlock and would not let him go, or punch and push players and the commentators blame the melbourne players.

    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.
