Because we got our fitness terribly wrong and teams knew they could outwork us as we were exhausted.

Wrong in what way though THBT??

My gut feel tells me they MIGHT have gone too hard too early (built them up to a mad level of top end fitness) leaving many spent by the time we got to round 12ish.

Goodwin's poor player management in the second half of the season exacerbated this overkill pre-season prepping.

Big emphasis on 'might have' and pure speculation on my behalf.

Agreed, though it’s infuriating. If Sydney somehow don’t win, then this years premier must be considered extremely weak. Even Geelong are a bog average team away from home at GMHBA. This is excruciating watching this as we know we’ve wasted a year of our window. Our best would absolutely demonlish these two teams. Losing to Brisbane at home last week was one of the worst losses in decades IMO.

Don’t understand this thinking. This years premiers will be as deserving as anyone. We need to get our heads out of the sand with that view that our best is unbeatable. Well, guess what, we were very beatable this year. Geelong are strangling Brisbane, and I will guarantee you, they will not give Brisbane a sniff from here. Unlike us.

Another goal from a friggin free to Geelong. Game over. 
EDIT Hawkins choke.  

The only way I will credit the sheet the Dee's played in the finals ( mega choke) is that Hawkins wouldn't have kicked any more goals against May than Buddy did.

Why do Geelong have sequinned shorts on? Are they going to do a cabaret number at half time?

The embarrassing fact isn't fantasies about how bad Geelong and Brisbane are..its how bad the Dee's are for not winning

Well hopefully Fagan can recreate his magic at half time like last week. 

But gee watching Geelong they are just free everywhere and watching them kick it into there forward line where they spread and not have 3 talls all jump for it.

But I fear this game is going to turn boring. I think the queens coffin watching will be more interesting.

As predicted Cats to win how they like. They'll either choose to cruise home or smash them by 10 goals, just depends what mood they're in.

Gives them a run up start against the Pies or Swans who will likely smash each other for four quarters

😄 makes a great commander.

She's still saying how stupid we were playing LJ for the second half of the season.  Reckons it was like giving a pay rise to an employee who's told you they're finishing up at the end of the year.

Said he wasn't committed to the club and that's how he played on match days.  Should have gotten games into other player/s.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    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
