A win. Yippee.

Well great comeback from our captain.
Oliver well and truly back.
Chandler some much needed signs of old.
May absolutely rock solid down back. Nice game from Billings and Hore.
The biggest take away for me was Bbbs performance.
Didn't kill it but a very good serviceable game nonetheless. Our best tall fwd.
Tmac pretty good down back.
That's two key talls I had in all honesty pretty much written off. Im having some humble pie for dinner. Tx all.

A moment needs to be taken, to try and comprehend playing Laurie and Spargo ahead of Billings last week

Especially when Spargo had such a poor end to the pre season

  • T Mac a disturbingly competent game, didn't see that coming..
  • Chandler best game for 6 months
  • Windsor & Howes both belong
  • Sparrow better hope Tholstrup is miles off...
  • Billings miles ahead of Laurie, Spargo......how didn't he start round 0!?

Much better and there’s still improvement - like fritta not missing what he’d usually kick. 

Billings and Chandler great (let’s hope it sparks momentum, like his work out back as well), Clarry awesome to see. Tmac handy and BBB looked good. Maxy immense. 

Generally kept them at bay and monstered them at the end.

103-44 after the 20-6 fast start to the dogs. 

Let’s consolidate against the hawks next week to give us confidence and momentum for a tough few weeks after that. 

Go Dees!

Very good win! We looked like a very different side to last week. We actually looked to use the corridor more and take the game on. Good signs.

Gawn was BOG for me. He absolutely monstered English. Oliver, May, Trac and Viney were also very good.

Also a special shout to Billings. He should never have been used as a sub against the Swans. His ball use was brilliant.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
