Had much worse seasons at the Dogs too like 2022. 

I thought that Hunter looked good in 2023 because I don't think Langdon had a great year.

.... then I had the thought that Langdon didn't have as good a year as 2021 and 2022 as we we played a large portion of our attack through him and Jordon and Brayshaw played more as a defensive wing.

Phew! Two thoughts before 10am there. I'm out till lunch soz

Anyway I want Melbourne to select me with pick 93.. just so I can fill my pockets.

 

Ok but expect to be unfairly maligned before you even pull on a guernsey. I mean, that’s how you roll, right?

He can't kick, he's slow, he's really soft, I hear his mum is a drug dealer, there are rumours going around that he slept with his teammate's wife.

Can't believe we wasted a 6th round draft pick on this hack. We could have recruited the next Bontempelli instead.

Unless he's a culture killer and St Kilda couldn't wait to get him out the back door, then I can't see one ounce of downside in getting a player who once had a 30 possession/5 goal game and recorded 12 Brownlow votes in one particular year, for a future 3rd rounder.

At worst he's simply replacing JJ or Harmes in the depth department at maybe 250K a year??

Sounds like a good bit of business at this stage.

A Jack, a Tom and a Shane.

We're so deelightfully old school!

(To ice this, I was hoping there was a Tom to join Jack Mueller (39,40,41,48) and Shane McGrath (41,48) in their premiership teams. Alas, there wasn't. 1900's Tommy Ryan and our TMac, who's been around seemingly forever anyway, must suffice.)

Good he'll fit in. The more players we get that keep Collingwood's premirship out of the news the better.

He’s been playing with the Saints no wonder he’s been ordinary over the last few years. 

He has had to deal with the fact that the Saints took him at Pick 3 and the Bont went at Pick 4.

StK fans have never cut him any slack and have ridden him hard.

Just disappointing we didn't pick up another James.

Nice bloke jack Mueller...used to say "how good would I have been with 5 fingers". ( Only had 3 on one hand.

I believe kicked 8,6 and 6 goals in the PF,GF and GF replay in 48?

For that contemporary, Petty-like, feel, too, he was at full back in his first GF, I think.

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
