The Saints have been boring and wont be missed but I won’t trash talk their finals exit until we beat the blues and save ourselves from another straight sets exit 😬

Even the cheer squad has a sign that reads ‘I’m definitely not an AFL employee’.

When in Melbourne they book the broom cupboard at the Mountain View Hotel for after game functions.

Shocker of a 1st finals week.

Coll and Blues winning by a kick  GWS looking dangerous Bedford kicking goals  WTF

All i need now is for Lions to win.

That #&@%## McRae can wipe that smerk off his face. Pies obviously had a plan to get one of our mids.

Result? Brayshaw obliterated and JVR suspended.

Maynard?  Tuesday He gets weeks.  Thursday  50/50 he gets off on appeal assuming hes suspended. It was all just an unfortunate misunderstanding.  Water under the bridge.  0 weeks.

can’t remember many people complaining when we let him go

It's amazing how many have forgotten that we didn't let him go. We offered a three tear contract and Toby asked to be traded because he believed he could not break into our side. GWS contacted Tobys management and asked to meet when they knew Hill was leaving.

You aren't paying enough attention Dub...

 

Chandler's game against Willy was pretty decent i thought.  Will probably need to kick the door down to get another look though me thinks after his very ordinary first up performance in Rnd 9 vs the Blues last season.

I liked Bedford's first up game this year.  Looked more switched on to the high end tempo of AFL and brought some serious pace and reasonable finish at the highest level.  However, he pretty much only played half a match so would need to see a chunk more and playing a large part of a match before being convinced he is ready.

Laurie i haven't seen enough of of late at VFL level to say.

If i had to pick one who is more ready out of the three i'd probably say Bedford but not with a high degree of confidence.

Has shown signs of brilliance in some of his games and hasn't had a real run at it given he's later in the pecking order behind Spargo & Kozzie.

Some of his ground ball gets under pressure are as clean as i've seen.  Same goes for the finish.  This bloke knows where the goals are and is pretty accurate on conversion.  Bit of a rarity nowadays.

A good back up for Kozzie in my view and an up and coming option if we need to go with three smalls depending on match ups. 

BUGGER OFF BOMBERS...NO TRADE!!

It will all depend on what they give him, if he gets two he can fight and win but if they give him the four or five that's being talked about there is no way he gets off on appeal. PS if he only gets the two it was prearranged anyway.

Bedford played exactly as we thought we would.   Pace.  Pressure. Goalscoring. After being sub for 8-9 games and dropped , he wanted to be given a chance. Goodwin and others seriously got this one wrong imv.  He always looked like a player.  This is not hindsight.  We called it out over the past 3 years when he was on our list.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    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.
