Very solid win. Bombers to their credit stuck at it and didn't make it easy for us

Can't see us making up the percentage but you never know. Would be great to get a calm day next Saturday and go hard at the Eagles, who are very ordinary. Pies might keep it close against the Lions but won't beat them.

I feel somewhat uncomfortable saying this but I hope the Pies win next Friday or at least hold Brisbane to a close margin. 

As it stands, we need to catch up 50 points on percentage

We’ll smash WC once the wind isn’t too bad

The Pies are solid. It’ll be close

Strong lineup and great to see us building towards a fully fit list (McNamara and Colvin excepted) coming into finals

i expect a professional performance today. That should be enough to translate into a 40 point win for us which will keep within range of Brisbanes percentage 

1 point off!

Mackin is exciting and I’d love to see her kick a goal. Has she kicked one this year?

Not yet! Never forget that she kicked a goal with her first kick in a game of footy during the praccy match against Carlton. I've got high hopes for her to snag one before season's end - and she seems keen to get one.

 

Just got the job done in this one. Frustrating that our one chance against an expansion side came in such conditions though. But flipping that on its head, our percentage is impressive considering that - plus the fact that Essendon is easily the best of the new teams.

Way too many kids eating ice creams in the wind turbine of Casey Fields that itself turned into a bit of an ice block after half time. Good choice on the long sleeve jumpers by L.Pearce, Bannan and Sherriff. The preemptive tape on Paxy and Mithen was also a good look.

Our intensity at the contest at the start was top notch to start and almost difficult to maintain though they stuck at it. There was some champagne ball movement, as well as some overly ambitious stuff that won't fly against better opposition. Seemed like a few undisciplined acts (or words?) occurred, but I was too far away to see them. My money's on Birch though for at least one of them. Related to that, off-season, after a respectful post-Daisy time, it would be interesting to discuss the options for our next captain.

Hanks was everywhere, Paxman breaking lines with abandon, Gillard had some good stops, Heath is a big improver this season (again) and Bannan had the crowd around me super pumped especially early. Great spoil late by Mackin who finds more involvement every week. A few had quiet days (Fitzsimon, Zanker, Goldrick to some extent) but hopefully that keeps us hungry.

Looking forward to Lampard's 50th game next week. Well deserved, and hopefully in front of a more Demons-dominated crowd than this week. Get there, Dees fans!

If we win 40 - 10 then we end up at 248%
 

If Brisbane win 50-35 they end up 247%

Collingwood kicking a decent score (win or lose) is the key to bridging the gap

That's three weeks in a row now we've kept the opposition to the exact same scoreline,  1.3.9

Which is incredible really,  4 scoring shots for the entire game for the last 3 weeks.  The blip is the Fremantle game,  a comparative shoot out where we conceded 5.6.36 4 weeks ago,  but the game before that it was 1.2.8 against Carlton. 

Our defence is water tight and  the goals are being shared around so we don't have to rely on Harris alone:

Hore 14, Zanker 11, Harris 10 and Bannan 7 and Pearce 5 is a good spread. 

The speed of ball movement by the mids has been outstanding.

Overall this is the best balanced side we've put out on the park, I assume Wilson goes out for Gay once she's fit,  hopefully for the finals.

Nice win. We laid some really hard tackles and hurt them today.

I think the last quarter arm wrestle was probably good practice for us before the finals.

I thought Paxy might have been on the slide after last season but Gee she's playing well this year. One of her best games I think.

How do you win a footy match by outscoring the bombers by a multiple of five and yet lose the free kick count 11 to 16?

Baaaaaall!

Just finished watching. Outstanding performance in those blustery conditions - no@WalkingCivilWar, no banner! 
Agree with others on the Essendon gronk near the broadcast mic and Underwood needs to stick with Offsiders where there’s an auto cue.

Fantastic win, fantastic day!

A great even team performance with a lot of room for upside. Paxy BOG, my favourite Heater putting a blanket on Prespakis in the second half while providing dash herself, Bannan electric, Kate classy, Harris killing it in the air and doing the team things, Gillard starring for a first year player, the engine room of Loz, Hanks, West, Purcell and Mithen excellent although perhaps a bit scratchy and overusing it a bit in the first half. 

A great, if very windy day at Casey fields, the only thing getting smashed as hard as the bombers was the tornado spuds wagon which sold out half way through the third. 

Next week we will at least know the target before we play, that’s an advantage. Hoping the pies kick 5+ goals and stay close at least. Then we’re a shot. 
Whatever happens we’ve locked away a home QF, a home GF would be nice though…

To put up with the Comrades on 'Land takes a special type of derangement @WalkingCivilWar. So we're all deranged in a good way - except maybe @Bitter but optimistic of course. 🤣

The crows sit 3rd and highly unlikely to drop lower. They’re not as formidable as last year but still a tough opponent to play in the QF. I’d rather avoid them

i think we need to go hell for leather against the eagles and try to make up the percentage. We’re well capable. And then hope the pies do us a favour. They have something to play in terms of finals position so you never know

Odd that you say that Quean D as I have recently been reflecting on my state of mental health. 
I have concluded that yes,while I certainly am deranged , I see no point in attempting any change to the status quo

Congrats to Gillard, well deserved

Another milestone:

That brings Kate into the top 5 alongside and ahead of some players who get lots more kudos.

Check out 17th - Duffy! Very respectable average.

And 18th, our old friend Scott - she's revived form to kick 7 for Geelong this season, good for her.

I’m kinda glad I didn’t arrive in time to join banner crew. Not sure I could’ve kept my [censored] together when this happened…

My buddy M ended up on his ar*se and while he didn’t make an ar*se of himself (see what I did there!) I know for a fact had that’ve been me, it would’ve been in the most ungraceful and embarrassing fashion…

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
