On the membership numbers, obviously a lot of our attention is elsewhere at the moment, but it's one of several topics about our team & club's future with AFLW that I'd really like to hear others' thoughts on, especially since this site is the main hub of men's members. I suspect that's an area where we're perhaps not getting as much conversion as other clubs. Will try to remember to re-visit this after we've all finished celebrating/commiserating!!

This time in 48 hours...

I've already got butterflies 😬

What's your tip DIO?

I’m tipping Demon by 20+ points going away in the Grannie  with Bannon and Harris both playing blinders. The perfect introduction for the men’s 2023 season where they will be unstoppable with their elite All Australian ruck combination……..

Some squadders take their love for the Dees to a whole new level…

After watching Paxy last week, I'm tipping her for BOG. She's looking so fierce. I hope she rocks the friendly fire head gear one more time.

Dees by 3 points.

I assume considering they didn't have goal posts a week or two ago the penultimate showcase AFLW game of the season will not have VTR goal line review technology in place.

No, that’s Sophie our esteemed leader. She told me she’s had randoms approach her at matches, training sessions etc. asking her, “are you WCW?” 😁

35 predicted for game time at Ipswich.

Great timing Gil

Probs a good thing I can’t be there tomorrow. There’s not a sunscreen in the world strong enough to stop me from being burned to a crisp in 35 degree weather.

That’s what I’m telling myself, anyways 😢

He is apparently not attending the GF.

No surprise. Clearly the AFLW is not high on his list of priorities.

The FAQs include "can I bring my dog to the Grand final" haha

Probably fits in with the age old Ipswich tradition of betting on dog fights.

We're pumped for tomorrow. Just been to Logan and bought a tricked up twin turbo Hyundai excel. We've fitted a brand new set of retreads to the rear. We'll be lighting her up with some victory donughts in the Springfield shopping centre car park after we win.

Booked in for a southern cross neck tatt this arvo.

Go Dees

Great we go in with no changes.

I saw some vision of the Springfield venue, the surface is looking good. Amazing job by the curators. Earlier in the week I saw some vision, where the waves between the slabs were obvious. Looked like they rolled the area where the slabs join, and have now rolled the entire surface. Lots of sun, has probably also helped. Would have hated to see the surface effect the game.

Enjoy the game everybody. 

I think we are a well balanced team and have what it takes to create a good game.

Go Dees.

    RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the Demons are to win their Round 3 encounter with the Sydney Swans this week, then the frustration of last Friday night’s uncharacteristic performance against the Brisbane Lions cannot be allowed to live in the collective heads of the players.   What made the mediocrity of the first three and a half quarters of the encounter with the Lions so uncharacteristic was that it defied every aspect of the impressive months of preparation for the season the players underwent along with the

    FLAG DEFENCE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons unfurled their 2022 premiership flag early on Saturday afternoon at Casey Fields and commenced their campaign to earn the honour of back to back champions in 2023. They did so emphatically beating Footscray by 37 points in a contest they dominated throughout and, but for some wayward kicking for goal early in the piece, they could have determined the issue a lot earlier in the day than during the final term when the Dogs finally hit the wall. The Demons were forced to make

    DARK NIGHT by George On The Outer

    A pleasant, balmy Brisbane evening with perfect conditions for football turned into a bleak, dark night in more ways than one for the Demons on Friday night at the Gabba. Coming up against a Lions outfit which had been truly cut to shreds by Port Adelaide the previous week, with the Demons having accounted for the Dogs emphatically, it was reasonable for the droves of Melbourne supporters to expect to witness more pain being inflicted as payback for their loss to the same team in the previo
