Give me a spell.

I didn't name names.

And I wasnt rude and I didn't take any pot shots.

Unless you call the truth a pot shot.

And frankly I'm heartily sick of posters spewing vitriol against my club after a loss.

And then going silent after an impressive win.

If you are gonna call out the club - repeatedly- after a loss then show some spine and put your hand up you might have got it wrong.

It's the opposite of fair weather supporters.

I wasn't one calling us out last week but it will take a lot more than a win against a pretty average team to get me really excited. 

It was a good win though and that beats losing everytime.

A reminder that was the first time our 2021 draft class have all played together in the one game.

Jason Taylor just doing his thing once again.

Yeah, Ralphy just showed it at half time of the Lions V Freo game.

Fair brain fade by Harmes.  Not that I think he would have got a game next week, but I think he'll be sitting one out in the cooler now, not even the mugoos

I should add that I use to have alot of respect for Harmes (and still love him deep down too), but also have more love and respect for May.

Dogs are a good side.

But I think that we can all agree that the Swans are very good.

Especially at home.

It was a good win in sweltering conditions.

With some key players back in form.

I'm excited enough.

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.

Whilst I enjoyed todays win very much the Dogs aren’t much chop. They applied little serious pressure and gave us plenty of space. And seriously can’t we bring up the issues that this team and club face without being derided for being overly negative? P.S. You’re very good at being sanctimonious

There was a wonderful moment late in the last quarter where Clarrie ran to the bench after a magnificent goal assist effort. The Demons crowd stood and clapped and cheered him for that and other obvious reasons. Showing him love and respect. Kayo did not show this scene at all. Disgraceful editing. Doesn’t suit their narrative.

As an asides, I actually think playing Rd 0 was an advantage to us.  Rd 1 teams are usually a little scratchy, but we had a proper game last week, not a practice match per the dogs and think we are that bit more match fit as a team compared to them.

Well at least that's what I told myself during the week after our loss to the Swans and I guess it transpired as such.

BBB & TMac , who would have thought ? Marty Hore looked like he'd never left the club.

We ran them into the ground in the second half. Used the width of the ground and took the ball out of the contest. Waited for a good handball receive and went deep instead of bombing it. 
Credit where it's due, this was a good coaching performance.

As an aside Daz, I would seriously think about MonizXX next week possibly replacing Woey!

Here to celebrate a 4th straight season of knowing early on that at least my team can play good footy. So grateful for that. 

Our ground, our game

Clarrie showed unbelievable skill and strength on the field and in himself

Gawn imperious

An angry Steven May is the best Steven May

Don't know what 'goals' did to Jack Viney but he's got them in his sights and is gonna keep kicking them

Kozzie + windsor combined pressure on the flanks is going to be my new favourite thing

BBB knee be free, please. We look so much better with him holding up the cartilage

A great win for the "Salo effecters"

Go you mighty Dees

Lever's disposal has never been one of his strengths. Kicks the ball in a rainbow trajectory

I'm surprised we don't have a player running by for the handball.

What about spotting up Big Maxie v Geelong a couple of years ago. Possibly won us the premiership with that kick.

Can I just say to start with, I really enjoyed Sunday arvo 1pm time slot. All those years we wanted to be relevant but being a part of those Thursday night matches that make getting to the game really difficult to get to but Sunday arvo MCG bathed in sunlight, nowhere else I’d rather be!

Plenty of positives to take from today, and really looked all over them for most of the game apart from the very beginning. I thought we got back to the basics of who we are and going hard at the contest, while also setting up well for the interceptions. 

What was really pleasing was to see TMac and BBB play well, I’ll admit I had no idea what to expect from them in terms of output so I set the bar pretty low. I wanted TMac to compete and not get beaten in the air, and I want BBB to lead up and present to demand the number one defender. Both did those things and so much more. 

I was also really happy that Hore has taken his chance and run with it, very strong game from him. 

Apart from that I feel like one of the other traits that looked more like “us” was looking to provide opportunities for each other, it felt like players were more interested in doing team first options rather than blazing away. No one epitomised that more than Clarry when he passed off to JVR for his last kick. I think every Dees fan wanted him to take the shot and kick the goal, but he did the right thing by the team and that’s what we need more of. 

Going to be very interesting to see team selection for next week, do they give Petty another week in the two’s for match practice? Based on that performance you can’t drop BBB, he did everything asked of him.

    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
