POSTGAME: Rd 20 vs Richmond


Demonland

Recommended Posts

Our side is showing some great resilience at the moment and that never say die attitude. I think we're in a much better headspace at the moment than a month ago and we are evolving as a side as well. I used to think we wouldn't stand up in a shoot out but they are bucking the trend there!

Holy [censored] that was one exciting game to watch!

We just griiiiiiinnnnd them away!

Petty and JVR were [censored] unreal.

Maxy on that performance alone should be a 7 time All Australian. That was [censored] nuts

Give Melksham another contract. He's best 22 for the rest of the year.

Go you [censored] dees!

A really solid performance. What a win!

An intense high pressure cracking game !!!

The toiges did us for pressure and intensity early and had our measure.

But .... along came Max ... big bad Max the mountain!!!

You will NEVER see a better performance in the ruck - EVER !!!!

A number of other top performances but I must single out Petty. He played more like  a forward than any other forward ( bar Fitta ) than we have played this year.

A very tough game - fortunate to have Norf next week.

There is a feeling in the Bitter nethers that says, " this is our year" !

GO DEES !!!!!

Good post Uncle. Credit to Richmond who swang all day. Props to Petty. Maybe the fwd line is fixed. But Max was on another level after half time. 

Vintage Gawn. Can't be stopped.

That win is  a  strong message to the other clubs.

EPIC upon EPIC!!  We are on the march to September, and in it up to our necks!! We have sorted our forward structure ….  as Goody said we would!  Who says Max is no longer the AA ruckman?  Pffft!  Go Dees!!  We all love you!

That’s footy!

Hate to be that guy but (like I suggested) they left the press at home and just let the boys play and it was fun!

And actually, you know, HELPFUL FOR EMBEDDING A BATTLIN’ FORWARD LINE WITH CONFIDENCE AND PURPOSE.

Keep doing that the rest of the year and we will finish wherever in the top 4 with a forward line that knows itself.

How good was Petty! I was sceptical of playing him forward but I've changed my mind. Everything he touched turned to gold.

All in all, I'm thrilled with that win. That was a very high pressure game and we held up brilliantly. Still got another four games left but I'm much more confident heading into the finals than I was this time last year. 

Just imagine, Clarrie and Fritta are to come into that team to strengthen it...truly!

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
