That was Nero's fault. He fiddled instead of calling the fire brigade.

McKay is actually listed at 204cm.

It's a significant difference and that's where I thought Tomlinson battled well even though he was beaten.

I'd play him on Brody Mihocek.

Mihocek is an aerobic beast fwd he works his [censored] off and Tomlinson can go with him better than May

Let 2021 go mate. We're not going to dominate every week.

That's the thing. Some people think the last three minutes of the third quarter of GF was how played for the entirety of 2021. Recall the loss to GWS. Their midfielders waltzed out of centre bounces and our forward line was anaemic (picture high kicks to Spargo matched against two tall defenders...). Re-read the postgame thread; midfield rubbish, Fritsch to be dropped, Goodwin to be sacked. 

Form fluctuates. Sustained success is hard. Premierships are a possibility not a certainty.

Lots of focus on our opposition not being amazing but our gold coast win at metricon looks really good to me, as they knocked off the doggies who are in great form.

Such a tiresome stat that actually shows how we beat up on lowly teams and struggle against top 8 teams.

Following your logic you must be thrilled with our scores of 76, 72 and 61 in the last three weeks, lol

We have Coll, Cats at Geelong, Saints, Brisbane and Adelaide coming up, reality check time.

Good posting

Absolutely! See also the essendon win, hawthorn draw, loss to the bulldogs (stats were ok but we were really lacking connection), even the wins against West Coast and Adelaide at the end people were not very comfortable with. We played a lot of footy similar to last night in 2021.

I sort of like it how we are going under the radar with mainstream media at this stage of the season. 

Same. Bar a couple of close losses this season is trending like 21.

Good for you 

You would probably declare season over at three quarter time.

Probably should be talking about Petracca's game more.

32 possessions, 6 marks, 4 tackles, 7 clearances, 15 ground ball gets (next highest for either side was Walsh with 8), 9 score involvements but also 27 pressure acts, 11 of which were in the defensive half, all from 83% game time. Did it on offence and defence. Truly superb.

He played with a chip on his shoulder last night, good to see

And you're not?

I don’t know. Am I? You tell me. In what way am I just too much?

If you’re gonna post your little rhetorical question how about you elaborate while you’re at it.

100%
The backline held the joint together for much of the middle part of the year.
Front end of the ground didn't work much better than ours is now though Kozzie and Frittta were kicking a few.

You have the power to choose that - don't hold back, treat yourself,  you deserve it!.

You understand this is blatant hypocrisy, right?

We win ugly, you talk about how we played terrible football.

Collingwood win ugly, you talk about their W-L record (i.e. suggesting the win is all that matters).

Collingwood had one ugly game while we've had quite a few ugly games.

Did you watch their win against North last week?

Imagine your reaction if we only beat North by 35 points and allowed them to kick 6 goals in a quarter. 
You’d be calling for a National inquiry

I'm sure you wouldn't be happy with conceding six in a quarter to North

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
