joeboy - keep on punchin’

A consistent and fair appraisal overall. Goody in his presser seemed pleased that Sammy Mitchell persisted with his master tagger. Just leaves the hawks one short offensively at the centre bounces and ball ups. The Demon onball collective appeared to enjoy an even team orientated performance. Clayton Oliver contributed manfully with 23 possessions despite quote ‘couldn’t shake opponent’ and being the focus of some extracurricular physical attention. With 14 disposals in the Round 23 clash last season that triplet would fit. Given the coach’s tactical response and the fact that #13 had an over 60% improvement in possessions this time.

Oliver - cunning plan gazumped 

Ed watch 26 disposals at 76.9% DE 4 tackles at 92% ToG%. 

Langdon - kicks klicks quick

Young Caleb’s GPS data must be impressive considering his youth. Great addition to the Winger’s club.

Windsor - has the tank

Nice on Fritta - loved it when he outbodied Sicily to mark and goal in the last qtr, who went down like a sack of spuds

Good to see him back to his best.

As much as I don't like Sicily I can see why the Hawks fought to keep him in. They would have been beaten by another four goals.

And I reckon if the paid even a quarter of the incorrect disposals against both teams the game would have flowed more and we would have scored more.

With three talls playing Fritta is at his best. Admittedly Bbb was down, Petty moved back and Jvr in the ruck may have given him more room.

Also since the inclusion of more talls, Chandler, Kozzie and Nibbler are kicking more goals.

I'm sure the Hawks threw extra numbers around the ball after the first quarter and it became a bit of a bog fest.

I'm wondering if Chol has form for using knees and feet out. Was all legit against Maysie but still punishing. He also led with his foot out in the ruck and clipped Jvr on the head. Very dangerous. A touch of Toby G perhaps.

I've also thought Hawks are a dirty team and the way they went after Oliver confirmed my beliefs.

Anyway, for so very long we have been their bunnies so I'm revelling in the amount of wins we've had over them recently.

Petracca - laser like bullets

van Rooyen - our 2nd ruckman

Petty - versatility is gold

Howes - most improved player

Windsor - pace to burn

That was right in front of me and i had perfect real time view. I will hate anyone for life if they wrong a Melbourne player. May was flying back like the clappers at an angle courageously, Chol had every right to do what he did.

Having seen the replay, I suspect the damage to May's ribs was caused by Chol landing on top of May who was partially lying sideways on the ground. I doubt it was the collision itself (and even if it was, Chol did nothing wrong).

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
