Just waiting for the re-signing interview to drop now where Petts says he never seriously considered leaving. 

Rumour is it’s potentially to 2028-29 — let’s hope it is as he’s shown now that he now comfortable again on the leaping-foot & that’s HUGE! Anyone still not convinced he’s a fwd is absolutely kidding themselves (yes, he’s also a defender, but my point remains — he’s also a fwd & right now that’s where he’ll be until something major changes in personnel. I do like fact that Rooch backed it up later with specifics by stating he’d heard it from two crows recruiters which does paint a narrative you can imagine ie call comes & clubs recruitment team was flat..
 

The worst parts about him leaving was that we’d lost our obvious May replacement in 2-3yrs but if he keeps the dukes firing like Sat night we MAY have lost him as The replacement anyways (pun may or may not of been intended, I can’t actually remember) — I know things change fast in footy but for now it’s good news & like to think it’s fact we stood by him through all the prev injuries & showed faith again by sticking fat this year as he wants to play fwd, maybe he feels it was a tipping point for loyalty or who knows maybe crows seemed like he’d be more a back man?  Either way let’s hope he stick around as his trade value was at MAX lvl LY especially in terms of maybe getting Harley (which if we had traded him LY, would’ve been 💯  ON & meant we likely had enough to get deal done) can’t see us getting anything like that as a return again (whatever we got for Petty +other early picks could’ve netted us Harley not JUST what we got for Petty, just getting in early for anyone poised to comment) and seeing Harry taking grabs like that just felt RIGHT — would’ve been REAL close to a flag if not for one errant pass by ___  (not giving it away free — who recalls???) but thems the breaks I suppose.

That doesn’t make sense. You mention LY was on. What does that mean? 

Lewis Young??? Or last year????

He definitely asked us to facilitate a move. We’d just struck out on one of our targeted players from Carlton and were not ready for a trade request from a player that we thought was not a flight risk. 
He made a mess of the situation by allowing the Crows to setup that awkward golf course interview. 
We held firm. As we should’ve. We can’t win a flag this year with him not on the list. No matter which end he plays at.

Any reason this player isn't mentioned specifically? Very intriguing.

Good lord get him out of the forward line forever.

Half way through the last quarter and he's had 2 disposals next to his name.

Experiment needs to end immediately and he needs to either be dropped or go back down to the backline.

In fairness, his 2 disposals today was only marginally less than the 6 disposals he’s averaged over the last six weeks.

Goodwin turned a premiership winning defender into a hapless forward.  Hes a key back.  wtf Goodwin.  It worked once v tigers.  He’s not a key forward. Do you want him to go to the Crows.  Send Petty back NOW!!!  he is going back to Casey at this rate!!!

He is such a lazy footballer. And a bit of a pea heart. 

Trade him come years end. He gives us absolutely nothing.

I also reckon Turner isn’t much chop either and is a list clogger. JT has no idea when it comes to tall players.

Get rid of him, how Goodwin is gifting him games is outrageous.

Play Jefferson or Fullerton, anyone!!!

Its beyond embarrassing how he is getting a game

totally disinterested at the moment.

I would trade him for picks to the Crows and be done with it. Use the picks on some young talent.

He’s not worth anything now. 
Should have been done last year when he was in demand

I thought he had potential forward and we'd see more games like he had against Geelong. Sadly it hasnt been the case and we can't persist with this much longer. Get him back to at least regain some touch.

I have been a defender of Petty's but I was particularly disappointed in his pea hearted effort in the ruck.  The aim was to give Max a chop out, but all he did was enable Darcy and Jackson to increase confidence and influence.  Did anyone else notice Max did the entire last quarter on ball?  A shocking effort by Petty given how little influence he'd had in any other spot.  Hopefully JVR is back next week.  His contest work is underrated and a template for blokes like Petty.

If we trade him this year we won’t get anything near what we were offered on the last day of trade period last year, two first rounders, might as well keep him and turn him into a full back like we know he can be

The problem is we have plenty of tall defenders. Tommo covered well for Lever today but when Lever's fit Tommo will be straight out. Unless TMac is going forward again there'll be no room for Petty down back. However, as he has not fired up forward TMAC forward to go alongside JvR is probably all we have left. Then yes, Petty can be banished to defence.

We aren’t keeping him. He will be traded at years end while he’s still under contract.

He was obviously brought back into the side underdone, lacking form and fitness but there's something going on with him , that was a while ago now. It's inconceivable how he can play the way he did against Geelong and then serve up the dross he's putting up now. Put him back or send him to Casey.

He’s a liability right now, and rightly so. Many players never recover from the injury he’s endured, but it’s time to give him some time at Casey to build some confidence and fitness. It’s doing him no good to go out each week and not be able to give anything to the team. It’s not thru lack of trying either. His body is clearly not up to AFL standards right now. 
JVR and Disco should play forward together for the next month while Petty goes to Casey and get some time just playing as a forward without pressure.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    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

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
