should be a very good game

I’d be happy to leave with the four points, not wet to the bone and not crying and not copping abuse from the feral Port fans. Not a big ask. 🤷‍♀️

GO THE MIGHTY DEMONS!!!!

We've won two against no one special .

Today ( and next week )will give us a real clue as to where we stand this season.

Are we any good?  [censored] yes we are !

Dees by 27 ! This will include a blinder from Jack Viney and four goals from Kozzie.

 

The Manorial staff all have rather fetching red and blue Bunny outfits for tonight's celebratory after party.

Does anyone know our recent record without May in the side?  I have a mate who always tells me "No May no Melbourne" and has loaded up on Port.  I want to know if there's any truth to it.

I’ve never been to a Power game at Adelaide oval but have a couple of mates who reckon their supporters at home games are the worst in the league. Are there any worse you’ve encountered WCW?

We've banked a couple of regulation wins against ordinary sides which has built confidence and momentum. Port are a step up and will provide a proper examination.

Curtailing butters and rozee is half the battle. Can't give them the freedom of Adelaide Oval this year. If we do we'll pay.

Viney is a champion. He'll put in a big shift on his 200th. Max trac clarry to the fore also. win the midfield battle and limit the amount of ball into our Mayless defence should be the go.

I'm confident as always. 

Dees by 20 points

I believe it's something like 4 - 7 or roughly 37% of games

Same or very similar when both Lever & May are out

When he's in, no surprise it's a big turnaround but i can't recall the exact number that was put up.  If my memory serves me correct it was somewhere between 70% - 80% but don't hold me to it.

We need to start looking for a serious replacement pronto.

I'd be taking a good look at Sam Collins from the Suns if we can prise him out (signed to 2025) but he's not a young fella either so still need a medium term replacement. 

Adams was recruited as such so fingers crossed there and hopefully he will come on in the next few seasons at Casey.

In Torquay but will hopefully be back in Melb for the start and a good TV screen. Go Dees.

Torquay might be a bit  backward.  But surely they have good TV reception  no need to drive to town to see the Dee’s

Without May:

2021 - we beat Hawthorn and Adelaide both at the G but they were bottom 6 sides.

2022 - Lost to Sydney and Collingwood both at the G who were top shelf sides that year.

2023 - beat Dogs at the MCG but lost to Brisbane at the GABBA in the first two rounds.

It’s arguably not good.

Nervous and excited about this game 

Port are better than Hawks and dogs.

A real challenge game on an away ground.

We are good enough but will we?

Yes we bloody will.

Dees by 23.

In a word… NO.

Sure, Collingwood and Carlton and Essendon supporters are bad, but that’s in Melbourne which makes a huge difference. Port supporters are next level feral when you’re on their turf.They have zero qualms about letting you know how [censored] they think your team is… loudly.

LOL… was just chatting to a Dees supporter who was on my flight. As we parted ways he said, “I’ll see you in the trenches.” 😑

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    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.

    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
