Recommended Posts

The Demons cruised to an easy 55 point win over the Hawks at the MCG but but paid a heavy toll on the injury front with Steven May & Jake Lever possibly sidelined for a number of weeks.

We did what we had to when required, in the face of a scruffy opposition and hot and cold umpiring. Trac, however, was consistently a class above.

A win is a win is a win and a strong finish is what good teams do.

PS  I think the Fox commentators may have given Hawthorn the 4 points !

What a smashing

What team can lose their two best defenders and not even blink

Petracca has moved up a level somehow. BOG by a mile

Hawks chip, chip, chip and we still had 20+ more tackles. 
Trac’s work rate was off the charts.

Go you Demons !!!

One of the more complete games you'll see from Christian Petracca. 29 touches 7 clearances, a goal, 11 score involvements.

And that effort tracking back to spoil! The game was done and dusted be he wasn't!

Lever said not a whole lot about what's up with his knee, getting a scan, maybe a week or two.  He's more worried about May.

I missed the game. How bad were the injuries?

May went to hospital at half time. Looks like he broke some ribs. Lever said he has something with his knee cap, it doesn’t sound mega serious but might miss some games. Petty swung back and looked like he’d never left.

I think our ball movement has taken a massive step forward. Using different angles to get those handballs to running players and trying to get through the middle more. Looking good!

Great win all things considered. Disco Turner may need to step up

Disco is injured. Not too worried with Petty, TMac, Hore and Tommo to cover. Hore can play that interceptor role

What's Gerald Healy's problem? Did we push him out or something?

Also, currently searching online for a novelty jumbo sombrero to eat re. Tomald showing composure and restraint down back.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    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.
