POSTGAME: Rd 03 vs Port Adelaide



Recommended Posts

Outstanding win, 4 qtrs effort across all lines. Don't underestimate it, on the road, rolled the sleeves up and went to work. 

ANB BOG

Lever huge

Trac measured

Gawn leadership personified

Brown & Fritsch finishing with class

Caleb absolute Jet 

JV7's heart is as big as the Adelaide oval 

Could go on all night...soak it in!! 

💪

Shouldn’t have won that. -21 i50s, 7 marks i50 vs 14, umpires playing catchup on the free kick count after half time. Lots against us but we were harder for longer.

Nibbler, BBB, Fritsch did what needed to be done when it needed to be done. Their “guns” are still soft as [censored] and they can look forward to another disappointing end to the year.

Go the [censored] Dees!!

How about all the smashed crabs wearing Port gear in the crowd? Couldn't leave quick enough after Fritta's goal 

That group behind Ben Browns kick were straight out of Deliverance.

I wouldn’t say an A grader. However, he’s an improving playing even at his age. It’s more the mental now. ANB is athletic, with a tank, but a cooler head than we see. He is aging well, and he will improve. 

What is not A grade about his current form?

15 goals from only 45 entries is awesome

Yeah I was skeptical after the Sydney game of our forward line, so I’ll eat some humble pie, things are working very well so I was wrong.

Massive win. ANB was superb. 

 

Also, well in T. Mac for getting into Rozee after that head flick during the tackle AND well done to Lever for getting the group together and getting them composed after it.

Kade Chandler was good again tonight and playing really well to start the season. I was worried about him but he's lifted after his end of season slump last year

Great goals from Windsor, Brown, Gawn, ANB and Fritta. 

Loved Fritta response to the ferals over the fence after he kicked that goal from the sidleine at 50, was priceless. Didn’t look like there were too many brain cells over the fence tbh.

Fitness - 11/10. we ran over the top.

Midfield/stoppage/clearance - 3/10 for first 3 quarters, 15/10 for last quarter. 

Field kicking - 1/10 for 3 quarters. 8/10 last quarter.

Lever, Viney, Max, BBB, - epic leadership. 

Goal kicking - 9/10.

Umpiring was poor to both teams, no advantage. 5/10

 

We really ran the wind out of Port, with persistence, higher levels of fitness and a more achievable 'method' moving forward. Great effort boys, inspiring outcome.

Thought Marty Hore did a good job down back. It's a pleasure having him back at the club. 

Thought his free kicks against were bit naive. But positions himself well.

Chandler was terrific, many times. He is like ANB, small profile, big efforts, almost a team saviour presenting himself in opportunities and creative chances. Very good goalkicker, too.

I'm proud to say that today's match was the first Melbourne game I've attended interstate. 

What a bloody win. Couldn't be prouder of the boys. 

I just hope your car isn't on blocks. They don't take too kindly to normal people over there

And we won with many not near their best and our No.1 backman not on the park.

Is Thurs too early for a Maysie return 🤔

Absolutely LOVE that we won a game where we lost the main stats and the expected score. There’s nothing better than seeing a team take their chances.

My favourite part was Fritsch screaming “[censored] you” at the Port supporters when he kicked the sealer.

Unfortunately I missed the first qtr, but the game looked pretty slippery even though it was a hot and dry day in Adelaide? Was that just the humidity?

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    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.
