Good news week (positive news only)



Recommended Posts

We don't give up.  When the Swans piled on goals in the last, we still fought on and snagged a couple back.  Since start of last year i don't think we have been monstered in any game (except for Essendon early in the season... even then we pulled a few goals back).

defense held up very well except when the ball came in on the deck and slippery.

sydney are a top 4 side IMHO (or close to) and we wont be the only ones who get beaten up there.

Let me drop off something on your behalf when I'm there in June and bring back you some vodka in July (not if you're doing dry-July though 😁).

Never mind the vodka, Lex. But maybe you could drop these off for me…

I think your spot on about Sydney.

I think they are very good team.

They knocked us out us in 22 and have drafted very well since.

We beat them up there last year with a much better fwd line with milkshake in great form.

Our fwd line is totally missing and selection wasn't great.

We just need a couple of talls back and several of our known players to lift.

 

Missed another key ingredient.

They have an excellent coach in Longmire. Performs well over a long period. Apart from the beginners error in 2022 gf playing injured Sam Reid that is.

Envious on that aspect

I have got bets on for Clarrie and Trac for Brownlow, Dees for Premiers, JvR for Coleman and Windsor for Rising Star. Looking good I reckon…………..

……..  To alleviate any concerns my max bet is $10 and I only bet on Dee players and games.

Yes good point D17. 

I was surprised how their depleted midfield performed.

Looking on the upside as bad as we played in patches we were in front at the 3 quarter mark and could have taken the chocolates.

Thank you, DZ. But because they live in Poland I’ll not be able to hold the little bundle of joy probs until mid next year when they visit Aus. All good though, meantime I’ll be spoiling and fawning from afar. 😅

My son and his partner aren’t into footy at all. But of course they know how much I adore our beloved Dees. Last night I told them I’m gonna buy MFC and DA membership for the yet-to-be-born little one. My son’s reply…

Funny [censored]-er, isn’t he. 🙄 

This presents a strong case for a new rule (and the AFL loves those). Cheer Squad member/grandmother rule.

Did l hear to be listed "available" if successful session on Thursday? (Petty)

 

So there's a sneaky chance he might play on Sunday

I took that to mean available to be selected to play at any level. Reckon he'll get a game or two at Casey first, build up the match fitness. But I'm just guessing

Can't help but love Jakey Melksham. What an ultimate professional he is!

Here’s some positive news: this Sunday there’ll be a sea of these behind the goals…

We’ll put a splash of red on them and will wear them while banner-raising as well as for the entire match. (31 degrees on Sunday so we’ll likely need paint-scrapers to unstick our hair from our heads 😅)

Unlike the Carlton cheer squad, (who looked amazing in their Blues Brothers suits), we don’t have to fork out $165 per person to look great. 😁

Also unlike the Carlton cheer squad, in the event of a loss, we won’t look silly, which is how they would’ve looked had they lost. Because our accessory isn’t for S&Gs, it’s part of the celebration of the career of a much-loved champion, it could never look silly.

And in case anyone’s wondering… HELL YES we’ll be wearing them again on KB.

I got given a $20 gift voucher from Bunnings when i exchanged a defective product.

I got a full refund from Uber Eats after waiting an eternity for my food to be delivered from the restaurant to my door, as my food was stone cold.
 

Thought it was a winner. 
 

As a result of that complaint, at the slightest delay to getting a delivery person, my orders get cancelled.

 

Now, I'm not so lazy and get off my [censored] and buy the same food for much cheaper direct from the restaurant 


The Morale to this story, swings and roundabouts.

    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

    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
