How can "threads the needle" not be in the Dwayne bingo card?

His commentary is as pleasant as listening to someone dry retching

We need a commentary drinking game.

In the snow?

I went there with Moonshadow a few years ago  (Jack Watts was still with us) to see us flogged by GWS.

One of the coldest/windiest days I've experienced .... anywhere.

Brass Monkeys were calling for oxy torches.

Good God man, it's never that cold!... but yea the coldest day I've ever experienced was an August day trip there with my dad . He said it was colder than where he worked in Northern Finland. It's 9 d c but the wind chill makes it 9 below.

Hogan may not be a great set shot but his contested markings still pretty good. And after he crashes a pack open is good at following up, collecting the pill and finding a teamate quickly.

We could really use him now.

Sits back and calls for the ball to be delivered most of the time & most of the time from behind.

If it falls into his 'preferred' drop zone he looks great and occasionally a million $$

When it doesn't ...well.

And it often doesn't, which then sees him sooking for it a la Richo.

The diff is of course that Richo had a massive tank and worked his opponents over by running them allover the park and capitalising on the fall out.  Nick Reiwoldt the same.  If Hogan had that work ethic/attitude he'd probably be a diff kettle of fish.

So Neale picks the ball up and blind turns away from potential tackles, but then runs straight into a tackler.

Had prior.... 4 umps.

That's immediately HTB right there...blow the whistle.

But nup..... im gonna give Neale all the time in the world to get out of this tackle even though he's already had more than sufficient prior.

So what happens.... tackler spins him around as Neale's trying to escape tackle and Neale ends up on the turf with one arm pinged.

After all that the umpire finally makes the call..... dangerous tackle!

So whose fault is the end result?

It's the umpire for not calling HTB immediately Neale spun away from his opponents and straight into that tackle.

Ditector of Umpiring &/or AFL need to fix this blight on the game & pronto.

    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
