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.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
