POSTGAME: Rd 01 vs Western Bulldogs



Recommended Posts

Keen to hear the thoughts of those posters who practically wrote our season off and blasted the coach and players after our loss last week.

Some remarkably definitive comments were made, given we were beaten on the home deck of a pretty good team that the bookies had as slight fav.

You know who you are.

Gonna agree with Kane Cornes about Aaron Naughton, used to be seen as the next big thing, he's a massive NAUGHT. They gave him an 8 year contract.

Sam Darcy kicked 5 in the VFL team, and I don't think Lobb was horrible, but if they don't move Naughton to CHB, he's not going to look like a great investment. Dogs would be better trying to make him like Darcy Moore.

Petty response.

Enjoy the win rather than jumping to pot shot

I was wrong about TMac,... thought he was slow, just think it's slow to turn, so having him down back isn't too bad, and was good by foot.

 

me too. humble pie for dinner

It truly amazes me how the Media World have talked up The Bulldogs list as being elite for years. I am not taking anything away from today’s performance, but the Dogs are very ordinary. 
Particularly Radio 📻 scribes, their whole analysis is just totally wrong 

Nice 👍 to kick relatively accurately today for a change. 
Makes a huge difference 

Go Demons

I’m with you. Based on what we saw today, Billing’s clearly ahead of Laurie. 
Spargs has credits, but is quickly running out of them. 

Let’s just celebrate a win, rather than look at Spargo’s and Laurie’s performance last week. Sydney are a better team and  the conditions were much different.

Got to be analytical in defeat and victory. Acknowledge what has worked and what hasn’t.

Happy to admit I was wrong about TMac and BBB both were very solid today…most pleasing thing for me was how tough and hard we were, had Bulldogs players jumping out of the way…I thought last week the Swans out hunted us so great to see the “1 wood” back

I was working today and could only glance at the scores. Looking forward to the replay.

Great win, and very pleasing to note we didn't allow 3 junk time goals to win by a meagre 10 points. We put our foot on their throats and ground them into the ground. THIS is the Dees of late 2021.

And I will continue to believe that we are a better team with BBB in it, with 2 qualifications:

  • If he is able to do 2nd efforts, he stays in the team, if not, his time is over.
  • He needs to provide 1-2 goals a game, and keep contesting in the air.

It sounds really promising about Hore, Windsor & Billings. I am very surprised about Billings, but happy to be wrong.

No doubt you will analyse it all for hours and hours during the week

    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

    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
