Can't keep carrying ANB in these sorts of games

Sorry adonski but you have to watch him live to appreciate his value to the team.

Cox trying to fight after the siren, what a clown.

Viney in the back not paid sums up why AFL is so frustrating for all supporters 

It was the lack of htb calls today that killed me.

Viney absolutely huge. Defence was so solid. May, Lever, Thommo, Hibbo was fantastic, Rivers got better and better after a shakey start.

Smith - so happy for him doubling his career goal tally today. Felt he started to look/feel at home at the level as the game wore on. Makes things interesting when Petty comes back.

Roo - crucial goal and did a lot of good things. Fritsch looking much more like his usual self - assuming he's worked through his foot issues from earlier.

Pathetic effort by the Pies publicising the supposed covid +flu sweeping their group this week. If the shoe was on the other foot we'd be crucified in the media for buttressing the excuse train like that.

We dominated that game. Make no mistakes this is the Port game in reverse. We kick straight and it’s a 6 goal win. 
Absolutely brilliant performance missing two very important players. 
 

I want to give a massive shout out to Smith and Tomlinson. Played perfect team roles. 
And McVee and JVR who are delivering beyond their years. 
 

A performance that makes you so proud. What an effort! 
 

Tomlinson has stepped in and played the third tall Petty role (which was the Tomlinson role pre-ACL) very well.

We badly missed that third tall back man while the Petty forward experiment was ruining both the forwardline and backline.

Wow.  Thought May had cost us that.. Very shakey.  

In reality should have been a 6 goal win, but we are devoid of confidence up front.  WHEN WILL IT END.

Defence was awesome today.  Contested ball amazing.

Special mentions to Joel Smith for competing - and the first halves of Judd McVee and Salem in particular.  I forgot how good Salem is, he just calms everyone down and some of the targets he hits, so good.

Disappointing again to get nothing out of Pickett, Spargo & Chandler.  Leaving too much for Fritta, we really need them to step up now.  Brayshaw was awful in the first quarter but battled on and got some useful touches.  Trac built and built but so wasteful!

Still painful to watch but we just beat the flag favourites.

We just carried our entire small forward brigade.

Amazing coaching performance and team effort. Our structure was set up really well and clogged them up in the right places.

God King is an insufferable [censored]. He used to love us and now sucking Collinwood's d.

Other than that an unbelievably dominant win, should've been 40+ points. We look to be back to our 21' Premiership winning best. We can do it this year, no team is untouchable!

If i would ask 1 question....

Is Chocco the best goal kicking coach going around? Its seems it was almost an afterthought when he was appointed. Surely this is an area in the modern game that seems to be overlooked. Cant we go out and get the best we can?

Not going to pretend that Van Rooyen was best on ground and I'm not going overcook the praise for what was overall just a pretty good game, but...

Van Rooyen didn't miss.

On a level with the Harmes-to-Fritsch clearance kick in the Grand Final for turning point moments.

And as he ran in for the shot he looked... happy. It was uncanny. It was as if he already knew it was a goal.

Umpire pooped his pants in the last ten minutes. Starting with the holding the ball that was called a push in the back. 

Having said that, go you mighty, mighty Dees. With the icing in the cake being a little more light shone on Mason Knobs

From AFL Members, lots of scattered pockets of empty seats. 83k seems spot on.

Embrace the imperfections people, we got it done!

Spot on!

It’s still only June - plenty of time to iron out the kinks and perfect our system and structure.

We just put the filth back in their place - let’s bask in that for a while!

Suspect umpiring in the last.  Petracca in the back, Viney not in the back, Brayshaw being hung onto when they got that last clearance.  Almost like they wanted it to go down to the wire.

Shouldn't have been that close anyway.  Good win!

Like Tomlinson down back - is very reliable and good for Levers game. 

one of the weaker forward lines it must be said.  Did well today though.

    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

    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.
