NON-MFC: Rd 11 2023


Demonland

Recommended Posts

Hate Carlton but maybe let them win tonight to get it out of their system.

Still don't rate the saints but the Hawks have their season quota now

Narrm have to win, the train ride home is just to long otherwise

Cats will win but only because it's at home

Suns to get it done for Dew, F/U Hardwick

Bombers. AFL has a comp where you pick one winner a week, different team each week. If only I had picked the W/C opponent each week.

Tigers to get the new coach bounce against Port. 

No stopping the Pies just yet but it will come.

Crows were too bad to be true last week and the Lions are due to drop a game.

My thoughts exactly. As much as I want them to lose every single game we're never good in those situations. We're always the team to play another team back into form. Heaven help us if they get trounced this week and their coach gets sacked.

It's a big one tonight

Go Swans (simply because I don't want a resurgent Carlton next week)

Continuing on my what's best for us theme

Wins by Hawks, Giants, Tigers and Suns would be good.

Time to concede top spot to the Pies and back them to beat everyone but us. (Yes I hate it but it makes sense and 2 is as good as 1 in the top 4)

Anyone else feeling a sneaky Hawthorn upset or do I need less coffee today?

Probably not but the art of good footy tipping is sniffing out a realistic update.

One thing for sure is that Hawrthorn are a step up in class from North and West Coast and are largely injury free aside from a couple of best 22.

An under the radar upset could be Suns beating Dogs in Darwin.

I was wondering when the last time it was that a team won by 100 points one week, then lost by 100 the very next?

Dorks win was to appease the masses (and WCE are truly that awful). If Hawks want Harley Reid then they're gonna need to get their percentage back in order (and the Saints are good at an easy kill)

There’s something beautiful about Carlton and Friday night footy. 

You mean sort of like a dazzling meteorite falling from the pristine night sky and smashing into the ground with a thump?

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    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

    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.

    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.

    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
