Thursday is less time for Moore and Daicos to get up too. That's also a win.

They ruled Daicos out already. He’s two weeks off from even running. Will be lucky to play the prelim.

Salem has been non-existent for the last few months unfortunately. What's up with him?

He'll step up, he's a gun!

I'm away so haven't had the chance to see the Sydney game.

The Melksham news is devastating on all fronts. Having cemented his spot and done so well this year, to miss out on the finals campaign will be heartbreaking for him. Meanwhile it throws a massive spanner in our forward line thoughts. Having him and Petty go down in the final month is just no good. 

I suspect it will be TMac who gets that spot. Fingers crossed whatever form he got today, and perhaps next week for Casey again, can translate into AFL level, because if we get the slow, early-2023 TMac, that won't work.

I don't need to have seen the game today to know that we won't be dropping Turner for anyone except Tomlinson. We are not abandoning that plan now.

Because it’s a final we absolutely should win against a side who can kick goals quickly if we nap. It’s also Collingwood and losing to them would ruin my day, possibly my weekend.

Don't worry mate, just enjoy the fact that we get to play an age old rival with packed G!

If we lose, well [censored]; I'd rather be involved classic contests against the teams we most want to beat!

If lose, we'll also get a chance to smash em again!!

I'm sure it's already been said but this QF is possibly our make-or-break at the flag.

Win it, we get a home prelim against Brisbane/Port/St Kilda/GWS.

Lose it, we get Carlton/Sydney (likely Carlton) in a semi before having to travel to Brisbane/Port.

The stakes are huge.

I don't see any other matchup shaping the finals series more than this one.

Maybe if Port get over Bris that is bigger but still not sold. I think all eyes will be on the G.

Could you have Grundy as the sub or is that the stupidest idea since dog goggles?

That suggestion's an insult to dog doggles LZ.  Brutus says hello!

Thought it was Montagna that gave us the pump up. King just nodded his head.

King had us number one seed last week, but when asked to give his GF and Premiership tip, said Collingwood would beat Lions in the GF. The man changes his mind on everything for no good reason every week. Only a few weeks ago, he said Collingwood couldn’t win the flag. They’ve not beaten anyone of note since, but all of a sudden, he thinks they’ll win the flag again.

The ‘expected scores’ only had Collingwood beating Essendon by 30-something points. Essendon were terribly inaccurate and Collingwood vice-versa. Essendon probably also have the worst form out of any side atm. Not sure you can flip an opinion or change a view based on Collingwood’s win. Essendon literally shirked at contests, it was unbelievable.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    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
