Paper and form, we should prevail comfortably. 
But I think the Suns will give a good account of themselves and really push us at times today. 
 

4 goals would be solid, 6 or 7 would be a strong win.

GC are good at the moment. They easily handled Richmond last week where we struggled to suppress them the week before. I wouldn’t take this game lightly.

In the same game last year they gave us a fright and many of their players have matured since then. They have a few big outs but they have depth now so they are no pushover.

Demons however, have too much at stake so take it from the horse’s mouth - we win by 20 points.

A mate is staying at the Sofitel in Broadbeach, the demons are staying their also, he was in the Spa with Viney, Van Rooyen and two other demons he didn’t know 🤦‍♂️ (bandwagon Lions supporter). Viney mentioned to him that the suns at home was the Demons hardest away game last year.  They should be on ready to go!

No way was WCW missing that early morning flight to GC; just for a few hours sleep. 

In the lady's own words:  'Sleep is overrated'!!

Last year when we played them it was very wet from memory. And slippery. 
Conditions today are vastly different. 
Fingers crossed we don’t take this one for granted and come out strong and deflate them early.

Rowell has lifted, in trying to make up for Miller being out, but Miller is a huge out for them, as is the in form Weller, who has become their run and carry player.

They are playing well and this is no gimme game.

My ample gut tells me this is a danger game but one we cannot not drop if we want to stay in the hunt. Just get the job done Dees. By one point or 10 goals, get it done!

You’re sure to like the front of today’s banner, SA…

Yes, respect every opposition. I just don’t think the Suns are playing as good as most are saying. They kicked 11.6 last week and that’s not much. 6.1 came in one quarter. They will have to play a hell of a lot better to beat us. 
They’ve lost some key players as already mentioned, we should be winning this.

Witts is a class ruckman so will probably come close to evening out the ruck contests with Gawn/Grundy. We have to take full advantage when he is resting on the bench.

Their midfield is on a massive learning increase and are no easy beats. Their forward line looks underclass but has multiple paths to goal. It is their defence where we will get them. Fritsch, JVR and Kozzie to go nuts today, and Chandler to continue his good form.

Dees by 25.

Last year was a cracking weather. Slipperiness would just have been the humidity.

The slipperiness was due to the state of the ground after a heavy downpour on the night before the game. And yes it was humid during the course of the game.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    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
