I wouldn’t write off De Goey, at anywhere near his best he’s a devestating center bounce and forward half mid. He can easily break open a game.

Gawn has a 50/50 record against Cox and the Pies rucks the last few years, again, not sure where the blind optimism is for that.

Gus was fine, but now he’s less at the contest and less on ball he’s less at the coal face and it would be nice to have someone who can kick a drop punt in that role. We might have to use him to tag De Goey or Pendles to get maximum value out of him. He’d be soft tagging Neale if we were playing Brisbane 

Disco did some good but there was a lot of being caught out forward or unable to jump or hold position at a big marking contest. He looked like a promising young tall in his 3rd game who’s main strength is intercepting and is a shaky as a deep defender. That’s not a negative, just the truth.

I’ll leave you to worry about DeGoey, personally I think Sidebottom is far more effective. 
Gawn knows the deal, he’s fit and I can see him tearing Cox and  Cameron a new one. 
Disco may not even play and with our structured, whole ground defence I’m more than confident that he can play his role. 
This game will be won at the coalface and they can’t match us there.

Magnificent finish to the H&A with a Top 4 already cemented. We should really appreciate this team, how we can change the game when all was against us in the 3rd is truly fantastic. And we’ve done it all year.

We are really hard to beat and that gives all supporters heart.

I seem to recall that in some big game in 2021 we only took off just before ¾ time and did ok after that. 🏆❤️💙

The battle of the fittest teams coming up?

Not so sure. A battle implies that there are two matched combatants.

How many games are they in front at the end of the season that is why pure and simple.

As the great Simon GoodWin says, the season starts again next week.

I really feel for Melksham. Hopefully it’s not an ACL. 

Terrible for him if it is - could well be career ending if it is.

We flexed our muscles a little when we needed to, and it was decisive.  Outstanding win when the odds were stacked against us.  Love it!  ❤️💙

Liked our win, and the period starting near the end of the third to the end of the 4th quarter.

The fumbling in the early parts of the game worried me. I wanted to see crisp, clean footy.

We're a powerful team and outmuscled the bloods.

Turner worked his way into an OK game. Love his extender arms when spoiling from behind.

Fritta's leading patterns are hard to stop, didn't miss a beat.

Hard edged, with will power, and self belief. Not pretty, but effective as we win the territory battle. Played reasonably on a small oval, we are best on the big ones, I reckon. 

Looks like a few of the MFC team are carrying some niggles. Good time for a mini break. Bad luck we don't get two extra days, like the favoured ones do.

Could be anything, but ACL seems very unlikely given his ease and no apparent swelling. If I HAD to guess, I’d say medial ligament (MCL), gde 1+, which would make him a non-starter for the QF anyway. 🤞🏻 it’s nothin’.

Yeah, that's my guess too.

Unbelievably proud of the boys- to come back the way we did in hostile territory with nothing to play for and with blokes going down left, right and centre was seriously impressive.

Fingers crossed for Melk-it looks bad but am hoping this is like Stevie J in 2011. IIRC he was stretchered off with what looked like a certain ACL in the prelim and then got up to play a huge role in the Grand final. We can still have hope until the results of the scans come in. Hope we get a better result than we did with Petty a couple of weeks ago

We almost clinched it. 

 

I know we're on the front foot with respect to anti-gambling, but with performance like that we should really be at the casino as part of our developing our future fund kitty for the new facility.

Seriously De Goey isn't fit to lick Petracca boots.  You know the guy that broke the game open today and the 2021 GF.

I hope you’re right.
My friend who is a doctor said immediately that it’s not an ACL due to the lack of twist. But the club is saying it’s probably an ACL which is strange. They wouldn’t say it if they weren’t somewhat confident.

And that is true but they won the minor league and they should be favourites doesn't mean they will win it.

    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

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
