NON-MFC: Rd 24 2023


Demonland

Recommended Posts

This week’s round is a race to the bottom for a number of teams.  We will know the landscape before our bounce.  Want to death ride the shockers one last time and I hope we get up.  
bombers stung into action against pies who don’t care.  Roos hawks and lions.  Crows Port and demons.  And in the august premiers special?  The giants with Carlton getting a bag of injuries.

Can't help but have a laugh at the AFL who were salivating over all the final 8 contenders 2 weeks ago. How will we manipulate the fixture so we'll have maximum exposure.

Now all they have is a yawn fest with GWS v Blues being the only game of interest assuming Dogs can beat "cue in the rack" Geelong.

Perhaps the competing clubs could take a cue from the pole vaulters last night and just declare all the games a draw.

Also ironic that the one extra game of the season forced on us by the Gather round fiasco has been such a fizzer.

It’s hard for the AFL to make an argument for the ‘integrity of selection’ when you look at whose being rested by  teams outside of the 8 this week.

They should implement a draft lottery, or implement a system where a limited amount of changes are able to me made each week over the last 4 rounds. They do it with rotations, and they can easily do it with team selection.

This weeks footy is a joke. I’m particularly annoyed at Geelong. They waffle on about the importance to their supporters of playing down there, and then scrap half the team for this weeks home game because it doesn’t suit them. It’s really poor.

Not so sure Geelong ,particularly Scott would toss the cue in the rack and go fishing at Lorne. They still have a game to win at home in front of thousands of kitty cats.

They'll want to win. Pride??? One rung on the draft ladder is  nothing to them. Mother time has caught up with Hawkins Rohan , Smith and some. Time to go avacado farming.

Having said that,doggies wont get a better chance of winning at kitty litter park.

I wish the Crows would stop crying about last week. Entitled knobs. They kicked 4g +8pts to 1p in last qtr.!!!  Thats why they lost.

If GWS beat blues (highly possible) they wouldnt of made it anyway. Who says crows will definitely beat the Eagles in Perth ?

Stop crying. Your fault you missed finals.

The karma bus hit the AFL.

Stopped, and backed back over the AFL.

The AFL would have had their final round drama if the Keays goal had been awarded.

And the reason it wasn't awarded is they've had 14 years to get the goal review system, brought in to prevent exactly such howlers, right.

And have still not got it right.

Hmmmm I'd like to see the reaction on here if it was us instead of the Crows.

What if the AFL set draft positions (for bottom 8 teams only) in RD 22,  unless you go on to make finals? That way teams that can still make finals in R22, will be too far out to purposefully try and lose as it only sabotages their finals chances? Also means R23 & R24 have no impact on draft selections unless you drop out of the top 8. And if you drop out of the 8 with one round left, that means you can still get into finals. As you’ll only be percentage or a game out. 

Won’t cover everything but should at least mean only the 15th/16th/17th/18th teams will try and lose to secure draft positions in RD22 (which is what’s happening with field tactics anyways).

Have a sneaky feeling the saints could spring a surprise. They've been playing pretty well recently.

I’m 1 behind the leader of my work footy tips so I have to pick the right roughie.

 

hmmmm. Saints.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    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
