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.

    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

    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.
