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.

    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
