Just finished watching the replay.

Can someone tell me if that Fritsch last kick was really not a goal?

They never show if the ball goes through the goal line before hitting the post on the opposite side of goal.

Hit the right hand goal post unfortunately

It can’t have gone entirely past the goal line if it hits anywhere on the post. It was a behind.

Can we really know that?

Weird angle, and the post is thinner at the top. I can see a scenario where a ball with too much spin goes through the goal line and then out to the post on the other side.

That was one of the great wins.

Made more remarkable by watching some sort of mirror footy game.

One team dominated territory, clearnces and inside 50s. But often entering into a crowded fifty and missing key chances. Not taking full advantage of momentum.

The other team staying in the game  absorbing pressure in the back half,entering into an open forward line and taking key chances. Taking full advantage of momentum.

Go redlegs.

I think sometimes some of us take our defence for granted. Having a look at the votes thread not many defenders are in the votes and you summed it perfectly binman. 21 more inside 50s and our backmen absorbed the pressure time after time.

Absolute heart and soul of our great club. Loved his old man and absolutely love the way Jack goes about it. 

IMO he will be one of the best to ever pull on a dees jersey by the time he retires

Interesting thought exercise, possibly with a snap and a heap of wind. But in the real world if it hits the post it hits the post, at least until they bring in ball tracking technology.

The unfortunate mistakes led Fox Footy’s Ben Dixon to say: “Ratugolea is now ‘Ratugol-error’.”

Outside of the GF it's one of the best wins I've seen live. ANB deserves a hug.

You guys at the game made a heap of noise in enemy territory.
Was proud of yas.

Doesn’t surprise me. Happy to be on the other side of the coin this year instead of trying to bash through a crowd to kick goals.

A bit of inbreeding going on I’d say

Hard to believe there’d be any breeding going on amongst that lot

    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.
