I've been waiting for us to play Geelong in Geelong since Geelong came into the competetion.  Casey may as well be on the other side of the planet from here. I'll be there with my three girls, hoping for another impressive display.  

Hey VC, your daughters are welcome to come to us pregame to grab a flag or other prop to wave during the match. They don’t have to sit with us, as long as anything borrowed is returned postgame. You just need to approach any one of us in the first couple of rows of the cheer squad pregame. 👍🏽❤️💙🙂

Only the posts I choose to show her. 😁

Pauline is my second-best DA bestie, only don’t ever tell her that, she thinks she’s #1 😂

Prediction or known ?

Not sure if it’s public yet, but they’re the changes.

Thanks for that.  Rapt that Gabby Colvin gets a run.

At the risk of pushing the friendship, do you know what the story is with young Georgia Campbell  ? Injured, managed, dropped  ? 

Georgia’s omission is not form-related, our guess is Mick is going smaller vs Geelong.

Also really happy for Gabby.

PS: friendship not even slightly nudged let alone pushed. 😁

Campbell stuff, she's been great. But I can understand Colvin ahead of her as a senior member of the team.

I would stick with Campbell at the moment. Form has been good and a big reason Pearce has been playing good footy...

Yes, this is true. Haven’t even played them in a practice match. And it’s not liked they’ve just joined the comp, they joined in 2019.

edit: this is the closest we’ve been to playing them…

😂

Another AFL conspiracy on that tin. 

Why do the cats players have two footys in play? Unfair advantage for sure.

Is their a Melbourne Milo?

Has a better ring to it.

We like borrowing your flags etc for the Perth based games, really good. The query I have, is when are they going to get rid of the nets behind the goals during games, really makes us not want to sit with the cheer squad.  Maybe the cheer squad to locate to the pocket as a group when in Perth.  This years game is at mineral resources park for the first time, so not sure of the best sitting possies.  Fremantle oval sucks.

Love the DeeBrief AFLW, best in-depth look at AFLW Dees out there!

They mentioned that the Dees Army are looking for kids for the Guard of Honour on Thursday night, as an FYI for anyone heading down with kids who'd like to take part.

Thank for the inside word. Glad for Colvin - she was our best on in the S6 GF and I really hope she can recapture that form. It can be a tough injury to come back from. As for the outs, I've got a feeling that the 3-4 next cabs off the rank outside the starting line-up are going to prove crucial.

The nets at most grounds are only up during warmups for goal-kicking practice. But sometimes at the smaller grounds they’re left up for the match, and despite a much lower chance of being hit by a ball, we don’t like having to watch the game through them. As for moving to a pocket or a wing, at away games we don’t get to choose where we sit as a cheer squad.

When I find out the relevant info re Mineral Resources Park I’ll post it here on DL.

Have never seen the Demons play better, more fluid football and we are still as tough as around the ball.  No-one can stop Harris, Bannan, Hore and Zanker.

Why the season is not at least 14 games long is a disgrace. They hurried 18 teams in too quickly so there are too many one sided matches and 7 teams you dont even play each year!

For anyone who has children who’d like to participate in the Guard of Honour-

Where: GMHBA Stadium, meet at Gate 10 (Ambulance Race) – there will be a Melbourne staff member there.

When: Meet at 5:35pm
Head out onto the ground at 5:50pm, with the team running out onto the ground at 6:04pm.  

Guard of Honour will conclude at approx. 6:15pm, with the participants returned to the Gate 10 meeting spot.

Outfit: As much red and blue as possible!

 

Also, the Demon Army will be sitting in Bay A28 in the Charles Brownlow Stand.

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
