Did Pig travel up with them? I see he isn’t on the emergency list but I do worry a bit about what the plan is to shut down Charlie if he gets off the leash. Melk was great as sub last week but I wonder if Pig is a better choice tonight (assuming Tommo plays for May and Pig is elevated onto emergency list).

We are better than Brisbane: more even and more stars; stronger; more confident;  and with a better game plan.  Ruthless Dees by 6+ goals.

Lions are flat track bullies.

We are a better team than them. We are fit and primed. We will deliver a proper performance.

Dees by 35 points

We are better than them, smarter than them and more attractive than them. Let's do this.

Last year we were well and truly the hunted. This year we are the hunters. Got a doggie scalp last week, tonight we are going to bring down a lion. GO DEES!!!

Someone please get the graphic skills out with a Demon pitchforking both these animals. 

I'd try but not in the mood..

This is a big game. Too early on to be season defining and also a tough one to be back on the road. But we travel very well and certainly have the motivation to beat them for beating us in the final last year. A win up there will be huge and I think we will. With Jv back our midfield and dynamic ruck combo will be simply too strong. Bbb is firing and Fritta will be itching to get on the scoreboard. Tmac to get back to his best and take a bucket of marks.  Can't wait.

Need to bash them up in the midfield, last week they looked soft in there despite the big names they have

Soft underbelly all round.

MFCSS is back in full swing. They will be hard to beat this week and they are at home. Yes we travel well but they are a much better team on their home ground.

Weather report from Brisbane. Was the coolest morning here for about 4 months with the MoeMobile saying 20 degrees at 7am. A week ago it was 28 at the same time. 
 

Some dew on the windscreen which I have not seen in about the same time. 
 

Nowhere near as hot and humid as it has been. Should be a nice night but will likely get a bit slippery later in the evening.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    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
