Yeah, they’re called the Daicii.

I know that. I remember learning it in Biology at high school.

Yes totally comparable to a weekend long camp that traumatised Indigenous players and attacked players who had lost family members. Totally comparable.

Areas, not replicas. Didn’t they bombard them with the Richmond theme song?

Forgive me I'm sure its been posted on here somewhere. But there's a terrific interview Max did with Whateley on SEN this week (search youtube) where Max mentions that the team wouldn't really be chasing the level of form shown in the last 7 odd games of 2021, simply because it was fairly unstoppable football at the highest level and it seems unrealistic to reach that height of play again. But he followed up by mentioning we didn't need to play that extremely high level to win a flag.

If you stop striving you go backwards....... Sounds like bath water to me

My apologies, I couldn’t remember the exact number.
But as Goodwin said, they’re the team to beat. 


Are they unbeatable? Of course not. Nobody is. 
But when you’re playing the most in form side in the competition, you need a lot to go right. 
Missing our best or second best (depending on your rankings of Trac and Clarry) player, certainly isn’t a good start. 

Can we win? Of course we can. I’ve seen far greater upsets in my time. But to suggest this won’t be a monumental task, especially missing Clarry and Petty (and yes they also have key players missing, which definitely helps), is blind hope. 
 

FFS blind hope, give it a rest.  Whilst you acknowledge they have key players missing you have to focus on the negative 

We knew Petty was out 3 weeks ago from this game, several knew Clarrie would be pushing it to get back from a hamstring for this game. So it was a possibility he would miss. They don’t have 2 absolute guns in De Goey and Sidebottom. So on a positive that’s a good start. Elliott, Mcstay and Lupinski all coming back so I would hazard a guess they won’t risk all 3 of them.

But you just need to worry about the 23 you’ve got, not those you haven’t

We didnt struggle...   what bloody game were you watching ??

We struggled to play coherent footy..   we struggled to string 2 recognisable passages of footy together...  fmd...it was hideous to watch.

We won mainly because Carlton are rubbish...  lets not sugar coat our ability, our game,   we won by less than 3 straight kicks.

We'll need to bring a much better game come Monday 

Go Dees 

I did not say we were good

But let’s not rewrite history, we were in control of that game and our inside 50 entries were putrid, not to mention our conversion. We may have won by under 3 goals, but at no stage we’re they a serious threat nor could they breakdown our defensive set up

I’m well aware that we will need to lift the bar several notches on Monday, which we are well capable of doing

Carlton are a highly ranked centre clearance side and we smashed their midfield. We'll be OK

Exactly and it makes us less predictable without Clarry in there. 

Don't get me wrong, he's my favourite player and we need him there for finals, but we can and will win without him.

In a way I am glad he is not risking ripping his hammy. He will now have 4 weeks to get it absolutely back to pre injury.

How about we all just think what we want to think and you don’t come here and get aggressive or rude towards my opinion, just as I have not done towards yours. 

I couldn’t give a single [censored] what you think about our odds of winning the game. So why do you care about what I think? 

I am so over this attitude on Demonland where nobody is allowed to say anything other than “we are a great team and we will win the flag”, without someone having a go at them. 
Oliver out is a massive loss. He’s twice the player De Goey is. And I am entitled to be disappointed and worried about his absence from this match. I’m sure the club isn’t thrilled that he’s missing either. 


Edit: let’s also not forget that for the past 6 or so seasons the Pies have lived rent free in our heads. When we were good and they were terrible, they still beat us. They have the wood over us, and psychologically we are coming in on the back foot. To suggest this is not going to be a tough game to win is just wrong.

The story is Christina Petracca has special edition footy boots for the game which will be auctioned to raise funds for MND 

Great gesture by him.

Very glam footy boots!!

I’ve come to the conclusion that we won’t miss Clarrie at all on Monday.

His last two appearances for Melbourne vs Collingwood:

• Queens Birthday 2022 - Kicks 21, Handballs 22, Disposals 43, Contested Possessions 16, Marks 7, Tackles 3, Disposal Efficiency 81%, Clearances 6, Scores 1.0, Goal Assists 0, Score Involvements 6, Frees For 3, Frees Against 1.

• Round 21 2022 - Kicks 14, Handballs 28, Disposals 42, Contested Possessions 24, Marks 3, Tackles 8, Disposal Efficiency 69%, Clearances 14, Scores Nil, Goal Assists 1, Score Involvements 7, Frees For 3, Frees Against 1.

Meh!

No pressure on Tom Sparrow and James Jordon who collectively will probably be called upon to replace him. At least they don’t have blisters.

You lost me at this.

🤔Either your "thought-bubble" is a brave attempt at denying away the influence that Oliver exudes in a game so as to calm the expectations.......or results.

...or you've gone completely bloody bonkers Jack... 🤷🤷🤷

Again, Clarry is the best player in the competition IMV, but we will beat them without Clarry.

    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

    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
