GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs Geelong


Demonland

Recommended Posts

The Demons have made their yearly trek down the Princes Highway to GMHBA Stadium to take on Geelong in a match where we have the opportunity to solidify our position in the Top 4 in addition to putting a dent in the Cat's finals aspirations for season 2023.

Confident about this one. Kat Park doesnt worry us, although we have been worse on the road this year.

If Tomlinson was any stiffer, hed be dead.

Good opportunity today to bank another win against a struggling cats outfit and make our charge for top 2. 

Pretty confident we will get it done but it will be a slog, especially if it rains. Let's hope we don't put together another wet weather performance like we did against the bombers.

Dees by 22 point, come on!

I thought we buried the Geelong era in that prelim in 2021. Surely tonight is the chance to truly end it. 

You can't bury a club like Geelong in a preliminary final - they'll only get stronger.

The only way to truly get the job done is to kill 'em on a cold winter night on their home deck, far from the spotlight of September, when there are no witnesses and nothing on the line but their own pride and dreams - crushed at last.

Never easy at taxpayer funded park as their home record attests.

They are undermanned and vulnerable. If we're about our business we should win. But it'll be tough. Always is down there.

Dees by 10 points

Yea, Finally game day has arrived. 

As Bruce would say...A mouth watering feast tonight.

Can't say I'm happy about Tommo but must move on.

This will be tough at their fortress. They always are.

But we have their measure.

Go you good Demons.

The last time I went there it was a cold wet night like tonight and they smashed us,kicking something like 20-3, kicking them from everywhere.  We were our usual inaccurate selves, missing from straight in front, 20-30 metres out.

I am confused by the confidence.

Yes on paper we are a better side. They are missing some key players, but playing in Geelong always means they have the upper hand, especially in terrible conditions.

We SHOULD win, but when you play them it's never more than a 50/50 proposition.

Their season is one loss away from death. They know that and will come out super hungry.

This is one game in which I have no hesitation admitting that viewing from the comfort of The Manor is far preferable to live attendance.

However, I must also pass on my admiration to those hardy Demonlanders who are making the trek.

I'm feeling very upbeat about this game and foresee a comfortable win. The ****ty weather won't help their key forwards and May, Petty , Lever etc will finish the job.

I'm predicting a tense first half and then the Dees to runaway by 4 or 5 goals. The Manorial staff will be busy refilling my shiraz.

Thomo is so stiff to miss.When he first arrived I thought when he played back we had a ripper of a player.He missed a GF and many games with his ACL and has slowly taken his time to get confidence ,fitness and form back,it takes some longer than others.He hits form so they kick him in the nuts again,hope he knows why because we sure dont

I was explaining to Frau Nekkid that she is welcome to join me on the couch for the TV coverage (including any half time jollies), on elf the rare games I will watch from home.  I was explaining to her that GMHBA stadium is unfit to hold cattle, let alone an AFL game.  Basically chop a third off one side of the ground because there is a road there, and pretend it is up to standard.  Frau N will barrack for Maxxi (her favourite) and will sing the song if we win.  Otherwise she will take off to less touchy freely parts of the chateau.

It's very refreshing to hear all the confidence in this thread and for a game against Geelong in Geelong.

People keep saying they're undermanned but the only line they're undermanned in is the midfield. Sure that could be enough but they have 2 Coleman medalists and a talented backline.

They will also no doubt have the umpires on their side egged on my their supporters.

why are we confident? Cats are 1-3 in the last 4. lost to giants at alphabet stadium, lost to tigers and freo. 

Duncan is their only decent inside mid. Cameron out of form (touch wood)

We will smash them in the middle. bring the pressure should be an easy win

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
