We’ll all be decked out in our new “Possessed” cheer squad T-shirts. Ryan, our chant leader, flew to Brisbane to pick them up this morning. Shipping was quoted as $1,100 so Ryan found flights for half the cost, and now we’ll have them in time for tonight’s match. PUMPED!!!

… and POSSESSED!!!!!!

Ryan, what a legend!!  I'm wearing a 2021 premiership top to the G, to be subbed out for the Possessed top on arrival 😄

It would be fortuitous if our Filth brethren read our 'Cox Sausage' comments and informed him not to worry about it - it would put him right off his game, deliriously.

I haven’t done a game day tip for some time, but I’m trying to convince myself that end of season form does really matter and that’s why we were exposed in the finals last year and went out in straight sets. Surely the end of season form we have this year and the end of season form the Pies have does mean something and we will see that translate into a win tonight.

Dees by 22.

If we lose tonight and lose against Carlton next week, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to trust in-season form again!

I thought out form was pretty decent in the last 4 rounds of last year. That's why I was blind sighted by going out in straight sets.

Beat Freo by 7 goals in Perth, a 7 point loss to Pies in a high quality game, a 5 point win over Carlton and 10 goal win at the GABBA. All were top half of the ladder teams.

I think last year was more injury related than form related.

Losing to Collingwood and Carlton in straight sets will be 55,000 times worse than losing to Sydney and Brisbane in straight sets.

Maybe nervous optimism but the more I think about it I feel like we have selected well for the conditions (or at least I've been able to apply logic to justify it). 

Hibberd not tall but tall enough in wet conditions when marking is tough and brings some ground ball agility (theoretically moreso than Turner / Tomlinson). 

Smith again tall (but not huge) bu super athletic. Very fit, good foot speed and great leap. Can be used forward and back (again more flexible than Turner / Tomlinson). 

Laurie sub. Small, quick, agile, good kick & performed well as sub last two weeks. 

Go Dees!

That’s true, but Sydney had won 7 in a row before facing us, yet the amount of confidence going into last year’s QF was pretty high from memory.

I’m hoping the Pies are like us from last year and we’re like the Swans (except for the GF thumping)

@Bitter but optimistic this is just what this thread needed. Calming dog energy 

Bear is pumped. Magpies are his favourite bird to bark at!

He was getting his voice warmed up this morning to cheer on the Dees

To stay calm I have not looked at one weather forecast. However I just got home from work to find my kitchen sink swarming in ants. Definite rain to follow. The ants are never wrong.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
