Round 21 it was and we went down fighting by seven, looking gassed and only scoring 3 goals in the second half.

But the thing too remember is we smashed them in the first half. The numbers were all our way

They only stayed in it because they kicked everything (five zip in the first) and we were wasteful. 

It was 10.7 to 8.2 at half time.

Seven more scoring shots for only a 17 point lead. 

From memory, we were something like plus 35 expected score.

We really could have knocked them out by half time, we were running that hot.

Worst football show on television. Would never watch it on principle - and I have low standards 

Agree, I almost felt shameful that I mentioned it in my post.  My paltry excuse was that I channel flicked at the end of the over in the cricket game when the ads came on. I honestly was searching to see if ‘The front bar’ was on.
I know, it’s a poor excuse. It will never happen again. Sorry

Mihocek, Johnson and Cox may not be the best tall forward unit around but they could still give us some problems. If Hibberd is back he could take one of them at a stretch but I'd be inclined to keep Tomlinson in this week. 

Think it depends if Elliot is in or not.  Will probably need Hibb here.

Unless we think Rivers is an option to play hin back of shoulder?

In that case we could still keep Tomo

Sorry doesn’t cut it. You’re grounded.

I can’t stand the majority of football media these days, they reek of morbidity.

I remember a a young tacker most of the footy commentary was either precise , factual and analytical ,( actually talking about the game), it was more fun and positive too.

These days it’s who can we pot, and how many people can we make feel bad in one show?

As far using the statistical information, they spin it to suit their own opinions in a negative way.

Jesus now they’ve severed it off???!!

We always got blisters (in the Army) - both feet, really all-day nasty ones in the old GP boots. The medics came around every evening and lavished methylated spirits very generously on our feet. Wake up in the morning -  - - gone! Ration pack, coffee, march on for another day, every day.

I literally can't take it. In the space of 12 months I've gone from watching First Crack, On The Couch, 360 2 or 3 nights a week and the Monday FC to almost none of that. 

I almost see these shows now in a WWE wrestling kind of way with manufactured viewpoints and scripted 'feuds'. I wouldn't even be surprised if some of the disagreements on these shows are scripted because people like arguments and they get clicks.

Lucky we've got such great comedic relief with Bounce and watching two of the all time great comedians in Dunstall and Gaze. Pppft

Their sophisticated himour are likely to release any pressure build up on your crack @chook fowler

The Wednesday Footy Classified is a joke with Monday not much better.

There's two?

Many years ago I watched it religiously. Haven't seen an episode in years.

For some reason the words 'excruciating' and 'execrable' spring to mind. Can't believe that people actually find that dross entertaining ... Dunstall comes across as a nasty piece of work and Gaze seems like a pleasant enough bloke but not much upstairs.

When Daicos was supposedly targeted early in the season the Pies were in the media claiming nothing is being done than weeks later Daicos was cited and fined for striking (punching opponent in the stomach). I hope like hell we come switched and ready for the contest on Monday.

Spot on. It has to be seen in the same way as footy is a marketable product in the field of sports entertainment. Simply a business and the footy media have become entertainers. Professional standards, integrity, truthfulness, and considered debate and conversation are old fashioned terms that are not relevant anymore. Although this can be said of society generally. There is a community of people that lap up reality TV and the dross of footy media and a community of people that don’t. Like many I have switched off and have no intention of switching on. I still love the game but not the nonsense that goes with it.

I doubt footy shows have become any worse. Your declining interest in footy media may be less about the quality of the shows themselves and more about the passage of time. I know that I would consume almost anything football-related in 2021 and while we were reigning premiers in 2022. Now that we've been displaced, I'm less interested in all forms of footy media.

I’m with you. Every time we lose I’m off all shows for the week.

    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

    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

    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
