Apologies if this has already been discussed at length, I haven't had a chance to read through this thread, but I just saw Rivers got a fine for a sling tackle.  Am I the only one (apart from Tom McDonald) who thought Rozee threw himself on the deck trying to milk the free?

He absolutely milked that free. There was no 2nd action to his tackle. His technique was flawless as far as I can see.

Absolute BS. No arms pinned and Rozzee played a dead fish to draw a free. Madness. Should appeal.  Opposition player did zero to protect himself and had both arms free. What was rivers to do?

Watched a part of the replay again.

My hat is off to all those who went to this game.

Seriously, those Port fans are feral and it's a committed supporter who braves that.

I think @WalkingCivilWar mentioned someone talking about being in the trenches. 

I can genuinely see why.

To use an old Soprano line..." Did someone leave a cage open at turtleback zoo?"

Looks like someone walked in off the street to photo bomb.

Looks like one of those silk robes boxers come out wearing.

Also, why is Howesie pulling that face?

It looks as though Blake is holding one in and needs to go to the toilet. 💩💩💩

This hasn't been widely reported, but a large group of Port Adelaide players and coaching staff took the time to visit a local orphanage on Easter Sunday.

"I feel really sad for them.  They looked so lost with no hope for the future" said Jack, a five year old resident.

Billings is worth persevering with. He’s coming off two years plagued with injury-setbacks, and is finding his feet at a new club. He was never going to play his best footy in the first few weeks. 
 

(Oh and, my phone seems pretty determined to spell his name as “Billing’s”, so I can understand the errors)

At this point, I think he is worth persisting with. If he keeps missing tackles in subsequent games then the conversation changes.

Sorry Mel, I read your post as a question. Fully agree with you.

He also said he reckons most other clubs would envy our culture. He’s about the only one who’s backed us this whole time, so you know he’s not just jumping onboard now that things are on the up. 

Yeah even last year he was still backing us in

This win really stacks up the more you think about it.

I get that statistically we perhaps shouldn’t have won, but stats don’t account for the last quarter’s tenacity, determination and nailing the clutch moments that we did.

I would be surprised if Port lose more than 2 games at AO this year.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again headlining another blockbuster at the MCG to kick off the round of footy. The Dees take on the Blues and have the opportunity to win their third game on the trot to solidify a spot in the Top 4 in addition to handing the Blues their third consecutive defeat to bundle them out of the Top 8.
