Well, by Demonland logic Geelong must have fluked last years Premiership?

They fluked it far more than we did*
If Pies don’t go down to Sydney by a point in the prelim, I reckon Cats don’t win it. 

*there is no such thing as a fluked flag ffs

Hard to believe that we could still be fourth after the weekend. 

Need something special from GC!

 

Also a Richmond upset and Crom defeating Brisbane at home would be greatly appreciated.

Lots of sliding door moments. Luck, avoiding injuries, building momentum etc will be decisive in second half of season. We are not there yet. Last season Collingwood rode their luck with winning all their close finishes in regular season but 2 close losses  killed their finals campaign. Their game was matched in heated finals pressure.

Just watching a bit of GC$ v Dogs just why (for one of hundreds of reasons) there must never be a Darwin based team.    Just never suitable for AFL winter footy.  
(And if they did any guesses how often Collingwood, Carlton, Essendon Geelong would ever have to go there?)
Of course Gil or Dill May say yes if they have a billion dollar taxpayer funded covered air conditioned stadium.

he would have made a wonderful transitional forward for us as I tried to explain last year. Laughed at by many but tell me who is better Hogan or TMac

Yes.  But, Tom is a MFC player and as such deserves support of all true Demon fans, regardless of his current limitations.   It is not a choice we have.

If there was ever a team based out of Darwin, I could understand the AFL demanding a stadium with a roof. Not so much Hobart.

    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
