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 💙❤️

I am a devout follower of the binman

Brilliant high intensity win at an oppo fortress. EXACTLY what you want heading into finals. As for the Lions, they embarrassed themselves tonight with their ‘tough guy’ rubbish,  and they’re winning nothing with Zorko as captain (couldn’t be a worse leader) and players like ‘Floppy’ Joe Daniher and ‘Slo-mo’ Harris Andrews running around.

Fagan is a nice bloke and seems like a great father figure but he isn't right for Brisbane anymore. I actually think he'd be great at a club like Essendon. He doesn't have what it takes to win a flag.

Coaches did them, good study of the oppo's player, their ball movers and game winners were given nothing. No lesser lights stood up in the vacuum. 

Great start, kept the foot down and didn't let them get away in the third.

Good transition footy (the change from offence to defence), predicted their attempts to get the corridor, great scoring from the turnovers.

Galvanising win.

Cameron got Hibbered again.

Too happy and a tad blotto to give votes but I’d put Rivers in there somewhere, his best game of the year. Cheers Demonland!!!

Kozzie's electric first half, rock solid defence from May, Petty and Lever, vastly improved delivery into the forward 50, ferocious contest work from Oliver, Viney and Petracca, accurate goalkicking and season's best performances from Rivers and Hibberd, who once again blotted out Charlie Cameron. Add in Jackson's return to his best which gave Max freedom to harass the Brisbane defence, and we couldn't ask for anything more.

I hope he talks about forward pressure, and decisions moving the ball into the forward line. Absolutely elite.

Bradshaw yakking about the treatment of Zorko by Melbourne but not wanting to go near Zorko’s two headlocks and some clearly not right sledging. Total misread by him. 

Chook ease up on the grappa FCS!

Fagan’s an assistant coach

Nah he's done pretty good to get Brisbane up and about. They were a rabble when he arrived. But should have moved on two years ago.

Our ability to pull out of tackles, not sure who it was but Neale felt the slightest of contact and fell forward but the tackling players released and kept his feet. Gawn turning the lions player in the tackle on his side so as not to fall in his back. This is massive in the context of games as we are not giving away costly free kicks. Even more impressive when you’re playing a team where their players and looking to dive at every opportunity.

Dancin in the street tonight! What an emphatic performance. Could mot be more proud of the way the boys approached this one. How 'kick selection' into the 50 was brilliant tonight. Every decision we made and execution was just perfect. Totally bullhorned them in contested ball. We got in their heads and they knew it, no amount of retaliating was ever going to change the result. The Lions have become hunted, which is no such thing.

Choosing a BOG is impossible, so I won't. Throw a blanket around Oliver, Trac, Lever, Brayshaw, Hibbo and the rest. They were dead set legends tonight!

Whatever happened with Petty at 3 QT is not over by a long shot. Clearly something was said that crossed the line and there will need to be consequences. So proud of the guys we have in charge at our footy club, Richo was not going to let this fly.

Jayden Hunt played like he just won the WWF title. His attack on the footy was ferocious and they even looked scared of him at times. He really wants his spot and why wouldn't you give it to him? Thought (relief at the) bowser did his job too. When you need to hit a target he does it.

Matthison is a bottler.

We targeted Zorko and the poor sod couldn't take the heat. Get pitted mate.

I could go on and on but I need to get home to the darl. Maybe another one for the road.

Love you all, GO DEES!!!!

    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
