POSTGAME: Rd 03 vs Port Adelaide



Recommended Posts

Something no one on here would be aware of is this morning as I was getting dressed to do the grocery shopping with my wife, I dug out the “Give em Hell” t - shirt from the 2021 finals campaign. Had 2021 vibes this morning and tonight compounded that feeling.

ANB take a bow

Clarrys last quarter was immense

Windsor is an absolute jet, that goal 😲 - thank you Freo 😂

Lever and TMac stood tall with May out and Petty moved fwd in the 2nd half

Congrats Jack on a great milestone win - I think the players were especially happy they got it done for him, he is the definition of a heart and soul player.

That last quarter was outstanding, but I've been writing about this a bit - we either try to win an extremely aggressive clearance or we're happy to lose clearance and play the game more in our defensive half. It leaves space in behind for our forwards and makes them look better and us function so much better. I like it. It's potentially more nerve wracking, but the slingshot is absolutely on with our game now.

ANB, take a bow. What a game. Viney incredible in the first quarter and then a really even team performance after that. Well done, BBB and Lever's early intercept play was excellent. 

Up the redlegs and Goody must be an alright coach, I reckon. McQualter a great acquisition as well.

Where are all the whingers who had a go at the club for retaining Tmac and BB 🙄

We are a genuinely good club and we have a genuinely good team, and we need to stop taking that for granted. 

A brilliant result considering we were definitely not always on top. We hung on during the momentum swings against us and were able to grind out a win in the last. 
Kudos to Clarry for lifting in the last. He was clearly hampered by his hand but when the game was on the line, he pushed through. 

Sensational game from ANB, and Windsor just shows elite glimpses. Knowing we got him from the Jackson compo picks makes losing Jackson hurt less.  Howes also quickly becoming a solid defender. 
 

Overall a fantastic performance and a big FU to all the pathetic disgruntled ex employees trying to bring our club down. Suck a big one!

I am pleased to say I was wrong about BB. Big time, but thats life.

I think he is is in the best form and fittest he has ever been in his time with us , including 21. Hope he stays fit.

We have another group of generational players coming through.

Just saw Clarry in rooms after game with his shirt off.

 

Am amazed that someone with his ‘conditioning’ could be playing so well.

Gus used to joke that he could never get a 4 pack, let alone a 6 pack. Muscles don’t equal fitness.

Certainly our gutsiest win for a long time. Only disappointment was conceding 89 points. 

Without May and with Petty going forward in the last, that is a bloody good result considering the patches of absolute dominance Port had in the middle.

    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

    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.
