Demon fans traveling in Turkiye. Me and my die hard son. Managed to find a bar in Istanbul to watch the Dees and Maggies. But now heading into more rural areas. Can anyone suggest a way to watch the Carlton dees game on our phone? Would appreciate any help. Go red legs!

 

Watch AFL App. Used it while I was travelling OS this year. It costs. I hope you can find a good internet connection there.

I enjoyed Istanbul heaps, but quickly got tired of everyone and their dog trying to rip me off. 
 
Have a great vacation.

This sounds a bit like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

I think I'm gonna tune in to the SEN fanatic channel to listen to the MFC biased call. I can't stomach listening to Brian or any of the others after last week.  Robbo, Tom Morris and Lily Mithen will be a better experience!

I really do believe we will win this. Not so confident about the Pf.

But it feels like the whole world is against us. Not just the Maynard  Incident. 

But we will coming out breathing fire and jump this mob. Their campaign is finished. They are in for a very rude awakening .

Here we go, the football supporters week

Post Loss....We're doomed, our flag was a fluke, Blues will smash us

Tuesday.....Tomlinson in, Jordan in, Goodwin presser felt upbeat

Thursday....Back in town Baby, Blues are doomed, we are clearly the better side

Well at least that's how my week has gone so far :)

Exactly! We finally found the game through TNT English broadcaster.  A very excited Aussie couple barracking for Melbourne joined us half way through. Just fly in from Egypt.

We look a lot better when Tommo plays, and think we have a high Win% with him this year.....

I reckon there is a bit of a myth in that.  He has played just 8 games this year.  Subbed out in two (winning games) and we lost two.

If he plays this week it will because we have no better option but his performance this year (KB aside) hasn't been convincing or finals worthy.

6w, 2l with Tomlinson in the team. I like him and hope he plays, although it might depend on how we feel about Carlton's decision to go small with their forward line.

We're 1-2 this year when Tommo plays and either May or Lever is injured.

We're 5-0 this year when Tommo/Lever/May all play.

I'm sure we'll eventually lose a game when all these 3 play, but the facts are we haven't lost a game when these three are in the same side since 2020.

In actual fact, our defence was brilliant in the early rounds of 2021 with Tomlinson taking a key forward each week before his knee reco. Petty took over his role successfully.

Just to clarify what I read in the last minute regarding Tomlinson & Hibberd:

We had a team that was winning and playing well with Tomlinson alongside Lever & May.

We dumped Tomlinson after Richmond, brought him back against Hawthorn, then dumped him again for no reason to play Turner against Sydney. Turner wasn't great, but the team still won.

We then dumped Turner to play Hibberd against Collingwood. After a slow start Hibberd was okay, but the team lost.

We are now bringing back Tomlinson to play against Carlton without McKay, even though he didn't play when McKay did play in round 22. 

The question is why, oh why, would you keep stuffing around with the competition's best defence at this stage of the season?

Look I think it's mainly to gaslight you - and it's working, you've never posted anything remotely positive.

Yep, I've done the full swing in mood. Feeling like if we can take out Carlton we're better than 50/50 for the flag.

That's partly because I think Carlton are actually in the very top level at this stage of their momentum, and partly because if we manage to get our forward issues worked out enough to get past Carlton, then we'll have a plan in place for dealing with the rest.

How unfortunate 

False alarm I just found out. His source was having a joke with him to lighten up the mood in their group chat. Seems they are nervous at Ikon.

I love Hibberd but it's clear to me we are just better overhead and even at ground level with Tomlinson. Hibberd is the smarter player and better run-with player but if we're to win on Friday then Tomlinson will be better for the run ahead of battling Elsa and Porpois Spit in the Lions forward line.

    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.

    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
