VOTES: Rd 02 vs Brisbane


Demonland

Recommended Posts


I was at the game and maybe you see different things on TV, but I thought Grundy put in a solid effort and that Bowey and Spargo were very average. Hunter was really good, Lever and Brown good, and Oliver just never gives up.

6 Hunter

5 Lever

4 Oliver

3 Brown

2 Rivers

1 Grundy

Our bottom six were very poor.

6 Lever - steady and reliable all night 

5 Hunter - very damaging with the footy, smart and creative 

4 Ben Brown - played CHF and key forward  and kicked good goals

3 Grundy - battled hard against two opponents and reminded off his ruck craft  

2 Oliver - battled and battled as a warrior all night but fumbles and turnovers were costly (and some defensive switch offs were costly) 

1 Bowey- got less of the footy than others but disposal efficiency were effective and created 3 goals and intercepted well

I wonder what they are going to do with McDonald hasn't got going if van Rooyen plays well in the 2's he could be in trouble.

Yep best Melbourne player all night long

What’s he supposed to do!!!!!

People will say "poor disposal, despite getting a lot of it".

But Oliver went at 62% DE. Last week everyone gushed over Petracca's game and he went at 50%.

Oliver (9 x tackles)

hunter

grundy (45 x hit outs n 5 x tackles)

BBB 

Trac (6 x tackles) 

Fritta

 

With respect Nicko the votes are not a    1,2, and 3 "best in Show"  (or On Ground) tacklefest. 

Yes some players did not look like they were up for a tackle inc. Fritta. Tackled poorly. Still earns his 3 goals to prove his class.

The DE stat is often overrated and sometimes underrated.  And often a poor guide.  To be honest, it's a confusing stat especially when looking at the output of Petracca last week.  He was dominant yet his DE percentage indicated otherwise

The eye test is more pertinent and even that's subjective

Brayshaw went at 63% last night and had 27 possessions.  Sure, he was a bit wasteful as Oliver was but many of our players just didn't get enough of the ball and were largely invisible.  That's a much bigger concern

We had at least 12 players who underperformed in terms of actual possessions.  Didn't get near it

At times Fritta may look lackadaisical but at one point last night he never gave up  defending and laid 3 tackles from memory  within seconds in one passage of play-he never gave up putting on the pressure. Credit where credit is due. Does anyone know exactly when this happened-will try to re watch it on  replay. 3rd or 4th quarter.

    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

    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
