Christian Petracca a chance to win the 2023 Brownlow Medal?

I reckon it is between Bontempelli and Daicos. Dawson from the Crows is a possible smokey. I suppose Neale also has a chance but he had a big potion of the season in unusually average form.

I can't see Trac winning it. He will receive a lot of 1 or 2 votes. He will lose votes to Oliver (early in the season) and Viney (who has been our best player IMO).

Taranto has had a very, very good year but not Brownlow worthy.

I would love Tracca to win but wonder if his interactions with the umpires may preclude him from the number of 3’s he should get down to a 2 or 1’s. He had a ripper year most disposals, most score assists but failed on scoreboard pressure. I would be horrified if he isn’t top 3-5. He had a better year than the Bont and Clayton was out for 10 weeks.!!

He shouldn't win it based on his kicking lately 

He really needs to work on this in the off season, sometimes he goes for the harder option which in turn opens up the play in our favour but he has been shanking alot of them this season. His set shots you can see the stress in his face and his gone from a great kick for goal to average. That calming work he does isn't working IMO

Daicos is already pencilled in if you believe Gil's hints on the Front Bar last night.

I would advise any Demon who doesn't want to have a horror experience to not tune in to chanel 7 for the next 2 weeks.

Gil wanted to go out with a bang and that's what he's getting, by hook or by crook.

A big stinking discusting dirty filthy black & white bang.

Never happier to ignore all AFL related content since we lost last Friday.

Based on the comments about tonight's game, it looks very scripted doesn't it?

Just waiting for the off season and draft.

Tbh I feel like we never took a stand about Maynard sniping one of our best mids to get an advantage. Just thinking about it makes me upset. I wish the club took some kind of stand. Maybe abandon the Brownlow. Empty table. Petracca win it and not be anywhere. [censored] them. But melodramatic but so what

I would admire the club very much if they tell both the AFL and the media to [censored] off and have an empty table on Brownlow night.

But we both know it's not gonna happen, the club and the competition as a whole is very corporate aligned.

But I will be happy if next time we face the thug and his mob, as I have said numerous times on Demonlad, May decks him hard (footy act of course).

I agree

we allowed the media to defend him and made it about Maynard, as did gleeson

I emailed Kate Roffey about it as I think it was really disappointing

It’s actually making me rethink my membership next year 

can you imagine Collingwood’s response had Greene knocked out Daicos?

I put 100 on Tracc at 6s. I think he might pinch it by a vote. 
 

Flopcos misses 6 weeks and the Bont plays in a [censored] side that lost half their games.

The big worry is Butters.

Bont has to be the favourite.   Stood out for the Dogs.  Likely 27 votes. 
 

Daicos gets 25-26 votes.  
 

Trac might end up around 23-24 depending on how they give him votes.  Should poll in 10-11 games at least so a big chance if he gets the 2s and 3s

Bont is such a big name and presence on the ground now that the umps are just going to give him the 3 votes if there’s any doubt between the 3, 2 and 1. I think this is what gets him over the line. Heaps of 3’s. Frankly he deserves the medal - what a superstar over such a long period now. Has been the best performed player in the AFL over the past half decade. Bona fide Champion. 🏅

That's what some of the media said. Why didn't Pert or even Roffey come out and say something after the Maynard decision. 

Silence.

With the luck the demons have had in the last month. He will be leading with two rounds to go and lose by one vote

Agree. Given the horror show of our last  month I somehow expect Nick Daicos to get 3 votes in our game against Sydney.

    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

    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
