POSTGAME: Rd 01 vs Western Bulldogs


Demonland

Recommended Posts


GREAT START!

We were missing 4 of our top 10 but the rest of the boys stood up. Kozzie, Lever, Trac awesome. Judd awesome start. Great to see BBB get 4. Grundy worked a treat first up. 

BUT, what I loved was how we were still running and hungry at the end. We could easily have rested in the last 5-10 minutes. We did that a lot last year. Not tonight. We put ‘em away. 

Once the machine is firing. We get a few back, Grundy is full power, we are gonna be scary. 

Great job, boys!

Trac changed the game in the second quarter I thought.
My favourite play was in the second when Grundy roved off the pack, did an underground handball to Langdon and Lingers centred it to Spargo. 

Spargs and Kozzie electric.

Some great signs. 
 

Defence was rock-solid. Tomlinson was fantastic. Had my worries about May being out but that proved to be unfounded. Tommo deserves high praise. 
 

Maxy, best ruckman of my lifetime hands down. I’ve never seen another ruckman cause as much damage, as consistently, as he does. So adding Grundy on top of that is absurd. 
 

Couldn’t ask anymore than a 50 point win!!!

I wont underestimate the Dees again this season. If you can win with four guns out against supposedly good opposition then you have significant depth. 

Great to hear Tomlinson played well.

Probably will play next Friday.May can rest up. Well done McVee. Anything about Laurie?

Kozzy is a genuine superstar now. Please offer whatever he wants Tim Lamb.

Trac, Oliver and Gawn just changed the game when they decided to put their foot down.

McVee is genuinely cool and calm under the heat. With more experiences and game he'll get better and apply himself with much more confidence. Jason Taylor has unpacked another gem.

Good to see Benny Brown up and about. 4 snags is a good start

Lever was BOG down back alongside Tomlinson and Bowey.

Just an overall great team performance. 

Unfortunately Oskar Baker and Mitch Hannan are VFL standard footballers. Still amazed Baker got given another chance at AFL level.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
