Adjudicators

Statistically surprising free kicks in favour of the visitors 25-24. Decisions were subject to momentum swings reflecting the hotly contested game.

Broadcast

Enjoying the terrific visuals of the action sans commentary. Until some bright spark decided to turn on the volume. Which distracted from the overall viewing experience. Nathan Jones preferred though. Dermot to the quiet corner with the dunce's hat please. Never repeat never to be given the microphone in adult viewing hours.

Opposition hyperbole watch

Adelaide has a worldwide reputation for cultural events such as the Adelaide Festival, classic wines and the saviour faire of its people. Yet at the high theatre of the Adelaide Oval. The audience is proletarian and 'the players' are second rate provincial actors. In the last act after the adjudicators reversed the holding the ball decision in the goal square. Up steps Connor Rozee with all the sincerity of a cloak room Lago. Struts centre stage with the self-conglatory aplomb of a bantam rooster to mass applause of the proletariat. Give him the golden banjo. (Wasn't that Tamworth?)

Overall comment

Can't readily recall a match where the team goal kicking performance was so exemplary. Given the heat of the contest in a closely fought match. Plus the degree of difficulty over distance and crowd hostility. Ultimately kicked the lights out in Port Adelaide. Now on to a quick recovery before taking on the sanctimonious Chardonnay sippers set.

Interesting to note this morning that Gawn is in second place on the Footy Show Lou Richards Medal, behind Heeney who'd have 9 Brownlow votes already.  After his performance in round 1, Max has certainly sent a strong message to the competition.  No other Melbourne players on the leaderboard.

@Demonland do you still count votes after you post the running tally?

6 ANB

5 Maximus

4 Trac

3 Viney

So stiff arguments for any of these guys to poll as high as 3 - Chandler / Rivers / Langdon / Brown, epic team game.

Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    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.
