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).

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    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
