POSTGAME: Rd 03 vs Port Adelaide



Recommended Posts

Such a great win for the team, club and us supporters. In hostile territory away from home against a good team, no May and definitely not favoured to win. Our game plan just stands up under enormous pressure, credit to Goody and the coaching staff and off course the lads for executing that plan. Stats mean diddly squat with that commitment and execution to a game plan that works. Even tho JVR didn’t have a great game he still made his impact felt for the team and ferals, I thought he was great relieving gawny. And how good was bbb and fritta sticking it up em? The boys certainly amped up the grand ol flag in celebration too. And too the dee army, although small ova there understandably, I could hear ya’s on the box plenty of times, well done💙❤️. Congrats JV your a legendary warrior for our mob.

My favourite way to watch the replay is to watch Ben Brown’s reaction to every goal we kick. He’s set up his own one man cheer squad in the goal square. Hilarious.

The ‘steal’ debate is an interesting one. I get the statistical argument but on the eye test it just felt like a classic game of momentum swings. We arrested theirs when we needed to and took full advantage of ours when we had them.

Not to mention coming home with a wet sail which should be praised in any sport.

As Max himself noted we are often on the other end of those types of battles so a refreshing change and a damn good win. 

More steel than steal.

Big few weeks coming up.

Short turnaround, Adelaide in Adelaide, they're desperate for a win. 

Brisbane back at the MCG, bit of spice in our recent history against them, another team desperate to get their season on track.

Dare to dream of being 5-1 at our bye? Then two games at the MCG against big teams with fading talent in Richmond and Geelong... sets up for a mammoth clash against Carlton.

Getting ahead of myself but I'd like to feel positive for once!

The entire team came to run along the boundary high-fiving after the match. Ricky Lever though! He went rogue, ran ahead of the others, let loose with a guttural scream that lasted for ages, excitedly waving his arms, absolutely whipping us into a frenzy. It was nuts!!!

Just curious: and mind you, I’ve not yet had a coffee, I slept only a couple of hours in a noisy hostel therefore I’m cranky af, but why would somebody react to this post with a vomit emoji????! No harm done, like I said, just curious.

Gee Petty loves to be a pest. Would be annoying to play on. Was at Alir all night. 

I’ve noticed this in both his games this season. Seems to be playing with a bit more mongrel in him. Quick to defend other players and seems to genuinely enjoy getting in the face of the opposition. 
 

Gee I hope he signs another contract with us.

Now you might say the bounday ump's view may have been obscured at the critical moment, but I recall a field ump was just a few metres away on the boundary on the other side facing the ball.  I can understand umps making mistakes in difficult situations, but amazed they can't get the simple things right. For example, in the Casey match a player kicked a goal after the siren after going 2m off his line.

Charlie Dixon went off his line with his set shot after the siren as well.

There would be few umpires who have the guts to call out a player running off his line kicking after the siren. Consciously placing themselves to be heavily scrutinised and swamped with vituperation. Has it ever happened before?

To be fair, I think they've also relaxed the rule to allow some 'natural arc' rubbish that pretty much means you can run off your line the same as if you are playing on and make it almost impossible to umpire as well.

to Brereton. He really is a wordy pompous fool. Went on about Port and their players all night and directly after the game immediately raised the point of the projected scores showing that Port should have won. Trying to claim the English cricket team's mantle of cheer leader for 'moral victories'. 

It's a great post but in some respects, He's right.

Statistically we should not have won.

But we did through sheer determination, straight kicking at goals and a magnificent backline.

Just like Port shouldn't have won the last game against us.

That's the way it goes.

And what happened when Max wasn't allowed to run off the line and kicked a crunch goal any guesses?

So I'm pretty sure that was you centre screen of the broadcast after the Kozzie goal.

not a bad game btw, much more to say soon.

I just hope i wasn’t crying at the time 😅Fair chance I was though, emotions were running roughshod through the cheer squad for pretty much the entire match. Even folks who aren’t ordinarily as psychotic as, for example, me, ramped it up a notch or 100. There was something different about last night. It’s hard to put into words, except to say it was very, very special.

Dare to dream we'll stay injury free, finish Top2 and then win the flag on the MCG.
Just like Gawny said they would.

I thought it is not the 'natural arc' rubbish, but now you can start off your line, but must be on the line when you kick it. So Dixon's would be hard to judge, especially from the TV.   But the VFL case I mentioned...blatant

I'm confused.  When humans start to turn in any zombie apocalypse i've watched, any remaining humans usually put it down before they are bitten!!

Does this mean they're happy to tear each other apart!??

Just imagine how different it would be if we'd lost by a goal or two.

Need more data for imagining.

Did we lose cause we tried our best but weren't good enough, or was it because of howling mistakes and poor kicking?
Did we have a huge I50 count, get a sheet call on the goal review or did we get screwed by the home town umpiring?

There are levels of discontent.

Gee DL is an enjoyable read with a coffee this morning 😁

If you want a real enjoyable read, head over to Big Footy and check out the PA comments post game, seems every second post has blamed the umpires for their loss. Oh and Hinkley is not the right person to coach their team

I did love that mark Esava Ratugolea took.  Imagine being a fly on the wall of the Port Adelaide supporters forum about that one!

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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.
