Recommended Posts

Last year's game 13 Aug
Tonight
1. Players not playing tonight (who played last year): Oliver, Hibberd, Petty, Melksham, Brown, Jordan, Hunt, Jackson Sub: Bedford
2. Players in (who didn't play last year): Chandler, Roo, J Smith, Grundy, Hunter, McVee, Tomlinson, Bowey 23rd player: Jordan

Last year
1. 55,705 on a Saturday night
2. Cripps plays after (a 4 & a half hour session) getting off at tribunal. Boo'd heavily in the 1st q
3. Had the Blues won (or drawn), they played finals for 1st time since 2013. Plenty to play for then...and tonight
4. Lingers booed regularly, didn't realise the Blues liked duck for dinner. Geez I miss the hair
5. Dees continued staying top 4 all year with the win (40 weeks in total)
6. This Canberran fan got to attend this thriller

1st
1. Cerra plays after getting off at the tribunal (didn’t play last year, abductor strain)
2. Setterfield to McKay (who's on Maysie) within first 30 seconds. Harry kicks it out on the full, May feeds it to him
3. Milkshakes (game 205) & Viney both miss terribly with shots on goal in first 5 mins.
4. 1st goal Melky after Trac sublime delivery. Brawshaw takes next centre bounce (& plenty more) already up to 3 clearances
5. 6 zip contested marks (we ave'd 11/game last year), 24/18 contested possessions, 4 zip free's to us after 10mins. Tackles 10/7 to them
6. Blues 1st score is a May rushed behind with 8 to play
7. McKay round the corner kick for goal (after run down tackle on Gus). A Silvagni point on the siren gives them the lead. 1.2.8 to 1.3.9
8. Gus (11 disp) & Gawny (& Dogga) enormous this q

2nd:
1. 2nd goal a Kozzy special, superb tackle causes a free on the 50. 33rd goal for the season. Geez I miss the hair
2. 7-4 tackles inside 50 to us
3. 11/4 contested marks to us with 11 to play. Gawn at his best. Free's 10/4 to us.
4. Curnow given [censored] downfield free from Petty off the ball, misses...badly. Petty then saves certain goal a minute later
5. 26/20 contested possy's to us, 13/7 tackles to them, 10 to play.
6. 2.4.16 a piece with 6 & a half to play (average score each team is 87 Dees, 85 Blues at this point of 2022). Lowest scoring half for the year with 3mins to play
7. May & Petty owning McKay & Curnow respectively. Pressure from both teams elite
8. 3rd goal Melky incredible crumb & goal
9. 4th goal Fritta after a downfield free
10. 4.6.30 to 3.4.22 Dees win 2nd q

3rd
1. 5th goal -GAAAAAWNY! Big mark in the 50, goes back & slots it at 15min mark
2. 6th goal - Melky with his 3rd after a lovely entry from Clarry
3. Floodgates open in 3rd. Blues take the lead with 12 to play 6.6 42 to 6.7.43
4. Contested possy's 22/20, tackles 11/9, clearances 8/5 to them 7 & a half to play
5. 7th goal - Dees back in front with brilliant checkside Trac (from Clarry brilliance) goal
6. 6 lead changes thus far
7. Blues win 3rd but Dees lead 7.11.53 to 7.8.50. Brawshaw with 30, 9 clearances BOG. Crippa 24 (15 contested, 8 clearances,  8 tackles)

4th
1. No Blues fans have left the ground.  Weird feeling
2. Max's marking a factor. Curnow 4 behinds for the night
3. 7th lead change put Blues in the lead with 14 to play
4. 8th goal (& lead change) - Lingers brilliance on the goal line
5. Get one go our way, score review says Petty touches one as it sails through the middle with 11 to play. Given the result, nice to get one
6. Free's 22/11 to us 10 to play. 9th lead change, Blues lead (J.Martin with 3)
7. 9th goal - BIG mark. Big Benny Brown. Crowd goals wild
8. 13/8 inside 50's, 62%/38% time in forward half to them 4 to play.
9. Curnow finally kicks one (62 for the year, leading the Coleman) with 3 to go
10. 10th goal - HUUUGE Melky mark kicks 4th, first time since 2018. 2mins left
11. With 30 seconds left, Lever famously kicks to the corridor, Hunt delivers to the perfect spot aaand Melky superb to....KOZZY!!!! (10th lead change)

• Fritta & Brown (although both applied GREAT inside 50 pressure/tackles) quiet
• Backline fantastic; Salem, Hunt, Hibbo, Rivers & the big 3. McKay kicks 3 but gifted 2 by the umps
• Hopefully Smith can have a 'Melky' game

I was at a festival in Czech Republic and was checking scores, showed scores to a mate next to me, both said we are cooked. 
A few mins later I saw we had got closer, saw the score tick even closer with little time, kept it open and watched the score go in our fav and elbowed my mate super hard and laughed and laughed and laughed.

    POSTGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
