Great. I’m flying to Melbourne from Alice the same weekend of gather round, hoping I could see the Dees play in Melbourne, something I haven’t done in about 10 years. Thanks AFL FFS. Even any game would have been good…

Hope we play at home the following weekend when I fly home. 

CEO Dillon knew you were coming.

One day someone will be able to explain to me the point of the "gather" round.

Whats the point of the Gather Round?

 

The point is to get a tourism department to give the AFL heaps of cash for the honour. It works.

In a parallel universe that didn’t have Gather Round this year, we finish second and play Brisbane in a week 1 MCG final.

In that Parallel Universe we play one less game during the regular season and Melksham doesn't do his ACL

Yes we drew the short straw next season but that is so predictable. I said on DL a few months back we will play Crows or Port next season in Gather Round. Its so predictable.

Last year Collingwood got 10 days break before Gather round. We got 6  and we lost.

Will lowly Hawthorn play at the Cattery. Theyre well overdue but will they?  We'll know soon enough.

Dees to the Gabba again and Norff in Tassie- our injury graveyard?

I think Crows will get  red carpet service next season due to AFL making amends for the Swans debacle.

Just eyeballed now. Gather Round,  Pies v Hawks  AO

Hilarious.

A FESTIVAL OF FOOTY  (Afl)

Morons

They could screw is more by deeming our gather round v Adelaide to be our home game 🙄😮

Honestly I agree with this.

I don't love them from an attendance perspective, but I was a big fan of having Monday and Thursday nights on tv.

I found it very hard to follow when some Mondays and Thursdays had games and when the start times of Friday night games kept changing around.

Having a consistent product is so important for tv.

That’s a great post Deb. 

Probably your most positive one yet.

You are becoming the most negative poster on D/L. 

Always looking at the negative side of any thing the AFL and sometimes very often the Dees as well. 

Dare you to change at least now until the season starts!!

As mentioned above, Carlton and Bulldogs drew the short straw in 2023.

Us and Essendon have drawn the short straw next year.

Two other clubs will draw the short straw in 2025.

I personally don’t see the issue.

Some posters can’t see any thing positive at all.

Wait until he sees we play the Swans in Round1 in Sydney as well. 

As a result we should probably expect Rounds 2 and 3 at the G one at least a blockbuster!

Dare the AFL to send us to the Cattery instead to take on the Cats in front of their 40,000 sellout crowds now achievable!!

AFL 2024 Fixture out this Thursday 16th. All our fears will be revealed!!

Round 12
Sunday, June 2
Melbourne v Fremantle
TIO Traeger Park

Like others I'm getting a bit over the Alice game, but obviously the club needs the $750K or whatever it is these days.

Pleasing that we have an 8 day break into the following week as opposed to the usual 6 day break we have after Alice.

And given how we've fared against Freo the last two year at the MCG, it might be a blessing to play them in Alice rather than at the G.

I have no problem with 1 game a year in Alice. Quite like it in fact. We have a longish history there now and a growing fan base as well. We have done some good work there of which I'm proud of the club for.

Sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture and applaud the club for instigating projects like the Santa Teresa Oval Project as well other positive community work.

I hate Thursday nights. If we’re playing it’s tough enough to watch it on TV, let alone get there if it’s in Melbourne. I’m sure ratings were solid, there’s nothing else to watch, but the question IMO is whether fans like it when their own club plays on a Thursday.

Couldn't agree more. 

Most people I know like Thurs night footy for the TV aspect and something to do but very few of them are prepared to go to the G on a Thurs night and do the whole nine yards with transport, crowds, expenses etc.

I'm sure there are people here that are happy to go on Thurs night and the TV ratings are great but I personally don't like it.

    The Demons head back on the road for their fifth interstate trip this season when they head up to Brisbane to take on the Lions under lights on Friday night at the Gabba. Who comes in and who goes out?

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    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

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
