Too hot for footy

Hombre it’s just not cricket. Too many gringos chasing leather.

OLD MAN ALERT:

The team sheet on the MFC site hurts my eyeballs.  Not the players on it - the font, the sizing and the spacing. Took me way longer to figure out who is playing (and where) than is necessary. 

Hopefully that is my only gripe with the MFC today.

Not an old man alert (or maybe it is and I’m now an old man). 

That team sheet graphic is terrible. There’s a great post in the now-closed pre-game thread explaining all the reasons why it’s awful.

I missed the other post, possibly because my retinas were amidst an acute bout of PTSD caused by our media department

 (and anyone else who was unable to get a ticket yesterday)...  it looks like things are ok now as I just tried again and got my ticket  👍


 

Thanks JTR, got my ticket.

Possibly would not have searched again without your prompt.

Addit, what was the 77 cents to secure the ticket about.

I had a ticket, they say to upgrade for $8.40 to guarantee entry, then say something about getting it secured (more than 100 did it).

Funny, I guess if they don't ask! Reminds me of the beggars in Kathmandu.

Not all that fussed about the result but I want to be walking out of Ikon Park tonight with confidence that we’re ready to hit the ground running against Sydney next Thursday and that we’ll manage ok with a weakened forward line.

Not only is our forward line not getting any better next week it’s actually getting worse without Kozzie.

Our forward line are missing a few but I'm still bullish about those we will put out on the paddock. Also reckon Swannies backs are not that good. All depends on the mids. We win the pill and at least deliver it into the forwards a bit better than in the past we will win this.

It looks like a CFC document.

Yeah aside from McCartin and Rampey I can’t name another quality Sydney key/tall defender.

As you said, it will depend on our quality of inside 50 entries and what kind of angle we’re taking our shots from.

They signed Joel Hamling who will fill the void left by P McCartin and they also have Blakey.

From a buddy who just arrived at Ikon…

For those driving to the game, at 5:10pm (now) plenty of parking within metres of Gate 5 (south east corner) on Princes Park Pde (between cemetery and Princes Park).

35 and strong northerly winds... wonder what it has to be to call it off

It’s gonna be uncomfortable enough for us supporters, I really feel for the players, playing in this stifling heat and it’s just a practice match. Really should’ve been rescheduled.

Filling fast. 10:1 blues:Dee's ratio 😛. As a brunswegian I know this is hostile territory. 

Half the players having very chill warmup on royal parade end. Kolt is warming up. Spargs doing media. Player families lining up with the genpop to get in. Weird scenes but good to be here.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
