New players to watch.  A bit if a surprise 

but it’s live on ABC Australia in Bali

so I can sit back and watch. Feet up 

Bintang ready.  Go Dees

It'll be flat by the time the game starts.

Getting 2021 vibes:

Goody copping criticism and media thinks he’s on the chopping block

Young kids being injected into the 22

Team looking hungry and united

Now you’re talking. Hungry and a little angry is how I want us to play the big moments this year. I thought we were a bit tentative and reactive at crucial times last season. No room for doubts….Go Dees

A week after I booked my flights and accommodation in Sydney everything slowly felt like it was falling apart for this game.

now I’m pumped! Especially with Oliver back. I feel mentally refreshed for some reason… haha

hopefully players feel that way too!

That’s the beauty of being totally delusional and having blind faith in our Club/players at all times 😂 I never experience the slowly falling apart feeling. I’m forever in the I’m pumped mode. I highly recommend it! 😃

That is, his bite as an enforcer/thug. His bite as a forward was consistently underrated.

If I recall correctly, he ended up on one of the American wrestling shows; possibly WWE? (or whatever it is).

I said this to a mate but he pointed out how wrong I was.  It's the Norm Smith for Clarrie.

Odd choice of words. We know what happened the last time something was put in front of him.

I would have him on the interchange bench all season mentoring the young guns.

I would make him the runner - even if just against Collingwood 😈

Brings to mind one of the great songs, and one of my all time favourite covers.

By the by, this version is 21 years old.

Listen to the first 20 odd seconds of this video, spoken word from Joe strummer (not on the cd or any other version) - incredibly prescient about the world today (and pretty relevant to clarry too).

Genius gets thrown around alot, but it's apt for Joe Strummer.

 

Love it… two of my favourite people involved in that song… Bob Marley for writing it and Joe Strummer for that superb version.

And just like that the Dees have gone from $2.28 into $1.94.

Where are the Swans at please?

I better not hear anyone giving Clarry a hard time.

I certainly wouldn't put it past Pies supporters.

I really hope Oliver has an outstanding year.

Seeing him do all the photos with fans over the last month shows what a decent bloke he really is.

Can't wait till Thursday.

It seems like an eternity since footys been played.

What a great way to start the week, with the debutants listed - and the goat, Clarry to play!

The media won't retract a damn thing, nor will the numpties on socials apologise (with their 'inside' info re his health and progress) - so I am overjoyed that Clarry has obviously been doing the right things to get his body and mind on the right track. Now it's a matter of every day, every week, just continuing the process and letting his footy do the talking. Would be amazing to see him just demolish, and take out a Brownlow. But one week at a time :-)

I know we're missing some stocks here and there, some permanent (Gus - which will create a good opportunity and Salo moving up certainly helps that), some temporary, mostly up forward, but we have some exciting kids - Windsor looks like he knows how to kick' em. Max looks genuinely possessed out there. 

With all the noise and media beat-ups I wasn't sure whether those ghouls would damper by usual excitement for the first (lol, opening) round - but they haven't. I am so pumped. The Swans up there is a solid first up challenge. They'll play some good footy this year. With their outs, and ours I think we're fairly evenly matched. There was a lot to like from, admittedly, a praccy against the Blues, but I'm pumped to see Windsor on the big stage, a bit more of Howes (who I wasn't convinced about, yet - but the boys look to regard him very highly and that's enough for me), Jibba, and Trac, Jack, Lever, May, Salo on the day, Fritter finding his goalkicking feet, the kids, and our boy Clarrie lighting it up!!

Let's go!!!

It’d be nice to see a few of those doom and gloom posters who are a part of Demonland doing the same. I can’t recall who exactly, but there were those who’d written Oliver off for the season at a minimum, not to mention those who cast aspersions over his character (hence Demonland having to lock the Oliver thread).

Our awesome new #14 Jack Billings

Ok , fair enough. Hopefully he'll give us more than he gave the Saints.

Dees need to bring in more new blood. Got to bring freshness to our game plan. Been too predictable in past two seasons.

21 of the available players seem to pick themselves.  There might be a couple of either/or such as TMac and Thomlinson.  I hope they give the last spot to someone either new or old who has shown improvement, rather than just potential.

YEP!! There have been a few of these.

But I suspect we won't hear much from them. 

Doom and Gloomers gonna doom and gloom

They're very loud until they're not.

Atleast Collingwood cant boo Brayshaw and they definitely would have.

Dont see any point in booing Oliver.  Boo him for being a naughty boy??

I cant see  SCG booing him.

Clarrie for Brownlow would really stick it to the media pack of hyenas

The only footy thing better than that, would be he also wins the Norm Smith, in a Dees Premiership this year, which starts off a threepeat.

Oh stuff it, make that a sixpeat.

At the season launch, Max’s speech had a noticeable undertone of being pretty peed off with all the external criticism and I think he said something to the effect, the players need to respond through on field actions not words. His performance v Carlton was at an exceptional level for just a practice game. It’s a long season though and early motivational drivers could easily slip away, time will certainly tell. 
 

Looking forward to Thursday.

Yes! And the way I feel I would go seriously balistic and I am older than Rodney and would not be adverse to seeing how tough this (censored) is!

Nicely posited, representing many of us. I'm most probably much older than you, Picket Fence, so please excuse me if I do only the follow-up work after your dismemberment of the Loved One.

    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

    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?
