Max’s kick for goal last game v Cats 2021 showing 5 Cats players within the protected area of the man on the mark.

No 50m of course.

But no need for a 50 as it was a goal.

Note last night the 50 wasn't paid until it was clear the kick wasn't a goal

Tough, hard fought win. Thought ANB held it together for us at crucial moments. Lingers and Hunter won some key contests and great to see Grundy and Gawn both taking hold of the game in different areas of the field. Interesting to hear Max say that Goody tells them who is starting ruck at the beginning of quarters and then they work it out themselves. I'm excited about the possibilities of that growing chemistry between the big fellas. Chandler, ROOOOOO big plaudits.

I applaud your your overt cynicism.

Tell us your version of what you would say in the press conference?

The question is whether there is a record of actually responding effectively. 

But if I were the Coach I'd model Ross Lyon and leave everyone confused until we ran out next week with a different line up

Dees 65/35 zero doubt 

Best turn out of Dees supporters at a Home game in years we had the tigers covered and how good were we in the 2nd half.!!!

To say nothing of the injury toll on their lift.

Nothing to be  optimistic about from  that win. 

As usual Goodwins presser was a pretence of having  a " plan".

He talked about working on the forward structure for the last half of last season..and did nothing!

This season it looks like " structuring" the big men on game day .

Chaos to come for sure.

Essendon,St.Kilda and Carlton better collapse or the Dee's will miss finals

Carlton? 🤣

Serious? 

It was cringe as [censored] interview until Chandler came in and composed himself well. Gus could barely put any full stop to his conversation he was talking that fast that you could barely keep up with what he was saying.

Majority of the interview was spent talking about Brayshaw's engagement and nicknames of the players and barely anything about the game. This is why Channel 7 is the worst in the business led by Hamish. They honestly think this is exactly what the supporters want to hear post game.

Rubbish content by them once again.

The remote control is your friend Dazz

Don’t think he did. Umpire explained the rule on the goal line, when May asked what happened.

Yelling at each other is May & Lever’s love language

The ANZAC day stuff is so over the top. There is no such thing as ANZAC eve, it isn’t Christmas or New Year. It shouldn’t be a giant commercial exercise and although it’s good for the club’s bottom line I wish we didn’t play this match.

Okay, we can just call it the match before ANZAC day

When we walked back to the car we were all excited and happy, it was a great night the pre-game experience was moving and well respected. Both teams played hard tough footy and even though they got the rub of the green from the 4 adjudicators we still managed to kick 9 of the last 13 goals and were still running hard at the end of game. They took us on early and ran out to a 25 point lead and we took them on and clawed our way back to an 18 point win that’s a 43 point turnaround despite numerous poor decisions against us. Our better and most experienced players All played well, our second stringers all had a crack and our 5 kids all did themselves proud ( Bowey, Chandler, McVee, JVR and Laurie) and all in front of a crowd of almost 84K noisy excited fans, how good does it get.!!!!

PS( The Anzac Eve game for those of us that have had family members who fought and were damaged in the Great Wars and those that are still representing us in the Military this game is an expression of our care and respect for all who have served.)

Good to see wiser heads somewhere in the coaches box prevail and shift Gus in the middle. Correlated with goals. 

Interesting observation. Fully agreed - he does see things ahead - and across. Plus, he can bob up against oppo players and take the unexpected mark.

Melbourne supporters easily outnumbered them. Richmond has a very big bandwagon when they're up and about. I put Hawthorn in that category as well. 

Not related, but I was astonished by the amount of merch the Richmond fans had.  Must add a serious amount of cash into their coffers.

We all have our cultural observations - to many, some, a few or individuals, these are important for many reasons and for others, less important, perhaps. However, observations are respected, not banished. It's all part of the diversity of what it is to be an Australian, whichever way it might otherwise be interpreted.

Well there isn't Xmas Eve or NYE either they aren't official public holidays.

This just happens to be a night to play a big game on that we happen to be part of every year now, I'm not complaining.

It isn’t a tradition to cheer some army bloke with fire and 85000 people waving phone lights around like you’re at a Coldplay concert the night before ANZAC day.

I lived out at the end of a road on the banks of the Yarra in Kangaroo Ground.

A nature reserve.

The  first settler there was a digger back from WW1 who was a hermit and wanted the peace.

Pre nature reserve he planted daffodils which have spread and carpet the bush in a mist un Aussie way but work as calling the regeneration of life each season.

My bet is you'd never have got him to join  90 000 [censored] pretending to honour the fallen before a football  match,let alone the night before.

The Dawn Sevice is something altogether different

IT IS IN MY HOUSEHOLD, REPRESENTING PAST REFLECTIONS AND EXPERIENCES WITH A TOUCH OF SOLEMNITY. LEST WE FORGET, THE SACRIFICE.

What should we do instead?

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    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

    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.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    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.
