But they won’t. They’re tanking hard. 

They didn't look like they were tanking last weekend against North.

I guess we'll find out on May 6 when they play each other

Our 2023 draft picks based on last year's finishing positions are: 

Melbourne 13, 14, 32, 33, 88

I'd be ecstatic if that turned into 1, 18, 19, 38 & ? On Fremantle's revealed form those picks 13 & 32 are going to be a lot higher. I hadn't quite appreciated how easy a draw Fremantle had early. I assume that as they finished 6th their remaining draw is pretty tough. Which 6 teams do they play twice?

The teams they play twice are:

- Sydney

- Brisbane

- Geelong

- Bulldogs

- Hawthorn

- West Coast

Make of that what you will.

Great viewing today!

Freo sitting 1-3 (lucky win after injuries plagued WCE) and have this the next few weeks:

GCS (in Adelaide)
Dogs (Home)
Brisbane (away)
Hawthorn (Home)
Sydney (away)
Geelong (home)
Melbourne (away)

If they are better than 3-8 I'd be surprised. Could be as bad as 2-9 is the Sun's get them this week in Adelaide.

I can’t wait to play them. Gawn should be back by then. Jackson will have a real fun time out there.

Just some of the wisdom on the Freo board

Melbourne are really going to love the top 3 draft pick we'll be gifting them this season.

Great no first round pick either to at least get a bit excited about

The Luke Jackson trade is a disaster and we will have to live with that but at least he's an okay player.

Going to be great watch Jackson spud it up whilst Melbourne's pick 2 wins 3 Brownlows.

So as it stands it we have essentially traded in Grundy, Jefferson and a 5-10 pick for Jackson.

It could end up one of the all time best trades albeit its early days.

Not sure if the club saw it this way, but Grundy had the runs on board and we got him at the same price. I just hope Grundy’s length of contract stands up..

Okay, I'm being purely sadistic here but how about we aim to use our 2023 draft picks to take the best tall defender (Curtin, from Claremont) and best ruck (Edwards, Peel, and Freo Academy) just so we can watch Freo supporters implode?

Handily, they're probably the two most suitable first round picks for us, anyway.

I mean, recruiters always debate 'best available' vs 'needs', but I don't think there's enough consideration of merciless trolling as a draft strategy.

...and then they trade Jackson back for a salary cap dump.

It's not cool to claim someone else's joke, rpfc. Next you'll be saying you're high on potenuse.

    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
