Lucky to be in front at halftime. BBB's AFL career must be very close to the end on that showing.

Both Brown and TMac are at the end. Both contracted for next year. Expect both to finish up then or retire early. Their bodies are shot sadly. Both great servants of the club and will be fondly remembered premiership players once they hang up the boots.

At the game, and the lack of (defensive) pressure in the forward 50 is staggering! Ugly signs, and we’re going to get run over if we don’t improve our contest and pressure, Jack Viney excused, and assuming Crows have the legs. Can’t exit defensive with any conviction, can’t keep it in our own. Awful football, except for that bright 10 minutes.

He's been lacklustre. No doubt about it. I think Petty is a better option. But it won't happen. 

I think Bbb gets another half a quarter before Smith is subbed .

Good to see Chandler back in the goal scoring.

We need to biry this side in the third. Are we seriously competing for a cup this year. No more just scraping in fgs.

I think Max is tired from last week. Nice goal in the first but only three touches since. Lever not doing much. Anb needs to lift again.

Milk is continuing his good form thank goodness

Keep M Crouch and rankine quiet in the second half and we win comfortably 

Easier said than done

All about starving supply, but they’re attacking much more than us, just have wasted shots.

I hate jumping on the bandwagon when it comes to our KPF’s, but BBB is not providing a contest. 
 

 

Has definitely been the case today: reckon he’s been better in the previous few weeks

M crouch hadnt been able to get an AFL game, we should be able to quell his influence but I agree keeping rankine quiet is a challenge

Maybe it is time for Petty to play forward and make Tommo a permanent fixture down back. I thought BBB was turning the corner a bit last week but he's off the boil today.

Adelaide desperately need the 4 points to stay in the finals race. They're not going to go down easily

Minding their pacy forward is proving to be testing and the hit up mark on the wing hasn’t been there. Need the forwards to rotate up to be that option. Brown, trac, melk and JVR.  Adelaide doing lots of block/grapple work to keep them quiet. Umps will chirp in if our forward go the ball in air (as they have a couple times already)

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
