Just arrived in Brisbane. 
 

80% humidity hit me as soon as we walked down the stairs off the Virgin flight 

(ps. Virgin - wonderful!!? What a joke !!!! - delayed 40 minutes arrival ). 
 

Dees will need good rotations through the midfield 

Having a sub will help ! 

Virgin are a disgrace these days, always delayed, bump prices up for events or school holidays.  

Hope the rest of your weekend is enjoyable

I think we would be. Use it as a bit of motivation along with the semi final.

Turn the heat up and Brissy will go to water.

I can only go Virgin, because they ( in the past) keep their flights.

last 4 times I have booked Jetstar. Each flight has had its time amended and one cancelled.

I heard a captain’s run tomorrow morning at Gosch’s. 

I've been wondering for a while, but what does the expression "Captain's run" actually mean?

Is it (1) the captain takes charge of training with no coaches present? (2) it's just the squad picked for the game including emergencies? (3) it's training like always but a shorter or lighter load? (4) any other option or combination of the above?

The coaches are still present and there’s more than just the squad there. I always thought it was that the captain directs this particular session. Also, it usually is a shorter, lighter load.

Pretty much all these. Sort of like a 'walk through' and light hitout with minimal coaching.

I highly recommend Rex!  They have good specials, give you a snack, and have some of the best on time ratings for the past few COVID years.  They only do the eastern seaboard really, but very solid service.

For example - flew up to Brissy today.  I was running late and they helped me get on board and arrived on time!

Yeah I thought they just did regional flights on the East side, I'd give them a go for sure!

Sad reality is Brisbane are mentally soft, they can't handle a hungry team coming at them, and they're just not that well coached. they're going to be 0-2 after this weekend, they'll beat up on enough lesser teams to play finals but they won't fire a shot again this off season

    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

    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

    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
