Straight Sets Simon was made to look very silly after he came back into the team and played well after the horrendous decision to drop him after the Collingwood game earlier in the year.

Holy Grail Goodwin finished the season in the top 4 on the back of this and other necessary decisions. Injuries to key forwards crippled us in the finals nothing else.

I think people forget that Melksham's spot was really a make up spot because of other injuries to KPF's

If we look at our preferred structure, 2 KPF's and a ruck/forward.

..If BBB is fit then we have 2 spots to fit him JVR and Petty for starters.

Plus a lot of pressure on for the small/medium forwards.

Interesting 2024 ahead.

Bbb is a wild card.

A fit a firing Bbb would make a world of difference but I feel he's a long shot. (Tmac even much longer). 

Therefore playing Petty forward seems like a fait accompli. So Turner full-time is a good fit but is Tommo a better option?

Would love to see what Jefferson airplane can do but maybe he needs more time at Casey. Besides Max probably needs some help in Fullerton playing. Can Fullerton be a forward for us?

I'm not fully sold on Laurie as yet but here's hoping he has a stellar season.

I wish we had found a proven big forward to replace an aging Tmac and Bbb. We have to hope Petty' s body is up to the job. It will be exciting for sure if it is. He hasn't really had much time forward but the game when he kicked those six goals shows he could be the next dominant ff for us.

I have high hopes for Jvr this season too. He has come a long way in a short amount of time.

A lot to look forward to this season. I feel confident of playing finals again.

1) Learn how to use the sub

2) Hire a chauffeur 

In all seriousness Tomlinson deserves first crack at the third defender position.

As someone else here said"...puerile..." comment re Goodwin.

Viney has the outlet kick with under a minute. He nails it we win.

He hits a blues player on the chest.

We lose. Game over.

Simon can't be out there kicking it.

Grow up and move on.

Well he’d want to improve on his last match……that was a howler

Silly me, I forgot Goody injured our forwards himself. Dontchya hate when your Coach does that. 🙄 

I also forgot he refused to select a player who may (or may not) have made himself unavailable. No excuse though, right? Goody should’ve forced said player kicking and screaming onto the ground, right?

I also forgot he only won us one premiership and not three consecutive premierships, an easy peasy feat one would think, right?

Seems I’m super forgetful since I also forgot Goody oversees the score review system and is in fact the one who declared Tracc’s goal was touched vs Carlton.

The list goes on.

The Carlton game was annoying/frustrating to lose but the Pies game was the one that cost us. A KO'd Brayshaw and terrible kicking for goal (eg guys like Fritsch who usually never miss) cost us the game and possibly the flag. Had we scraped past Carlton we wouldn't have beaten Brisbane in the PF anyway.

How do we get rid of these [censored] trolls ?

Unfortunately, nothing we can do about them, DZ. I’m sure they’re slowly driving posters away, though.

Correct on both imo Dr G. Sums up the season but should have had more than 2 goals against the filth at half time also.

I suspect a lions prelim would have been a hiding to nothing. But at least it would have kept those 5 year olds in the media at bay

I’m not attacking him personally but the team discipline in that game was atrocious.  The week prior we got jumped by the Pies and wet our pants. We’ve now lost 4 finals in a row. We just missed a golden opportunity to win a flag and we all know how rare that opportunity is…..so yes I’m a bit cranky about watching the pie scum with our medals. We have a list that demands we play Preliminary finals as a pass mark. We now sit below that pass mark and he’s the Boss. I’m pretty sure he’d be the first to admit the last 2 games weren’t his best. Also it’s a footy forum, surely we can pot the coach occasionally! 
Anyway you’re clearly a passionate supporter and I like that you go into bat for the team.

Pure comjecture here. I reckon we have had Brisvegas measure in the main in the last 3 seasons

When fit...

First you have to have a good list, then it needs to stay fit and on the park.

We only had one half of the equation at the end of the season.

...and to add to it, most of our injuries occurred in our weakest area of the ground where thy could be least afforded.

All good, RiF. I shouldn’t have quoted your post (which wasn’t terribly inflammatory) but I just couldn’t bring myself to quote another poster who one could say is a belligerent know-it-all and needs to find a hobby, or something to do other than trolling this forum and changing his username from one  childish and unfunny name to another just as childish and unfunny. I mean, I have a strong constitution, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some things that make me projectile vomit.

And yes, I do go in to bat for our players and our coach, and I’ll continue to do so forever, despite the fact that I shouldn’t have to on a [censored] Demons forum. 🙄

You mean people whose opinions differ from ours? Like it or not, everyone can contribute.

You’re right. Except that’s not the case here. No, in this case it’s the name-calling, the relentless and repetitious bagging, the stubborn narrow-mindedness, the disrespectful treatment of our own. This is NOT simply a matter of someone having an opinion that differs.

What’s endlessly frustrating is that they aren’t breaching any DL rules and won’t be unless and until stupidity becomes the grounds on which someone can be banned. Until then, they’ll be called out on it.

Every. Single. Time.

No mate, not the ones that have different opinions.

I’m talking about the repetitive name-calling and same lame azz sub jokes from the ‘Straight Sets Simon’ brigade. These aren’t contributions whatsoever.

I think having differing opinions is one of the great things about footy and sport in general.

As others have pointed out however some of the name calling is puerile.

The thing I find most disappointing is those who don't really stand by their opinions with a solid reasoning.

They will throw things out there but don't back them up and/or come up with an alternative strategy.

This seems a common problem with society in general these days.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
