What a weird game!

Hated the ball pinging around early and likes of Dusty getting on the end of three.

Second half was excellent and the last quarter thanks to Max and others the ball just stayed in our half.

Less mistakes by our backline this week.

Petty's contested marks brilliant.

Viney is such a warrior.

JVR great kicking at goal.

Some of McVee's running out of the backline was spectacular.

Salem came good in the second half.

Woey and Harmes were a huge worry.

Max's clearance work was sublime.

Well that was some second half from the boys.

Who said Petty will never ever be a forward!!??

Max's entire game was phenomenal including 100% game time in the last.  Epic 2nd half.

Salto with eyes only for Max on a number of occasions and not on the ball at all...charging straight at Max.... NO BLOODY FREE.  At least one was a clear block and still no free yet Max puts an arm bar out with eyes on the pill and gets pinged for a block.  Hilarious stuff and Nichols in charge of all that.  Disgraceful umpiring against Max from him.

Joel Smith a fab sub.

Melksham superb once again.

Big effort and best game from Roohey in his short career and just missed with the speckie attempt.

Chandler was solid.

Tracc was immense barring a few shonky disposals.

Maysie & Lever played their part.

Hunter's best match for the Demons so far??

Stoked with the win.... hopefully Clarry & Sparrow get back for next week.

Carn' the mighty Demons!!

Sparrow, Clarrie and Fritta make that team better on paper, pig too. Going to have some selection headaches soon.

I think it’s relatively easy for 2/3.

Clarry for JJ

Sparrow for Harmes

Fritta will be the hard one as it’s not a like for like with Melksham. Maybe it’s a Chandler.

You’re drenched, I’m jealous, would have loved to have been there.

 It was a great game. Richmond brought it. They were just running us all over the place. 
The best part of this win for me, other than Petty being a genuine forward, is that we ran them off their feet in the last. 
Music to @binman ears. We look to be hitting peak fitness at the right time.

Not only did Petty grab a bag he blanketed Bolta who has been their leading interceptor.

Viney since Oliver went down has been supreme

Kudos to the coaching staff that changed their offensive attack 3/4 weeks ago We are letting more scores through but have multiple avenues to goal

Last week it was the smalls this week it was the Talls. We are very hard to match up on and have great flexibility.

Gee I like Pickett when he goes in the middle. Just wish he would go their mid quarter rather than just at the start

Is Fritta the last to kick six for us two years ago?

Certainly has happened this year.

Pickett in the N.T last year against Port

Chandler has to stay. We are light on for defensive forwards when Kosi plays higher. 
Fritsch can replace Woewodin who is playing high half forward.

Haven’t read the whole thread due to eating dinner but the turning point for mine was Smith on and onto Dusty, completely shut him down!

Max just switching into overdrive for me.

I think early in the game, especially the second quarter, there were too many moments where we thought too much about how cool we'd look while doing the fancy stuff. Really good mental reset to get our focus back. Aside from a collection of excellent performances, that's the big thing I'm taking from the game.

Jake Bowey still make me so very happy. Every time he gets it, our situation improves a little.

There’s no way of saying this without sounding like an absolute smart****, but I don’t care. I said in 2019 that Harry Petty would be our next best KPF. Never wavered (just kept quieter when the selectors looked like they might lose their nerve, so as not to be a repetitive bore), and today is why. In that assessment, I said his move forward from CHB would be like that of David Neitz. Too good a contested grab, too good at reading the play and too much a competitive beast who feeds on small wins to leave down back. And kicks STRAIGHT. No question he’s been great in the backline, but the boy was always gonna be a forward. Well done Petts, (I told you so, hehehe).

This is downright pathetic by the umpires. He's one of the best players in the game and time and tuime again Soldo would charge straight at Max with no eyes for theball. The goal he got was a free to Max. In the centre Max was dragged to the ground with the ump looking straight at it but no free. Happened everywhere. 

 

There needs to be a major complaint laid. Teams cant handle Max If Dusty gotthat treatment he would get 40 frees a game.

Watch the” Petty can’t play forward” posters jump on the bandwagon now.

Max was sensational again and Viney is our bull.

Maybe Binman is right too with the loading, as we certainly ran away from them in the last.

Hopefully we can now run over teams, right through to the flag.

I can put my hand up as being in that camp, but to be fair no one saw this coming. Nothing he’d done playing fwd this year gave any indication he had a game like that in him.

How good has Melks been since fritta got injured. He been outstanding 

Doesn’t get enough credit for being a very traditional forward. He’s a finisher, and he’s done his job magnificently in the last month.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
