PREGAME: Rd 04 vs Adelaide



Recommended Posts

Currently on a family roadtrip to SA. Today we stopped at Kingston SE for some fresh lobster and fish n chips for lunch. Turns out the couple that run Lacepede Seafood are massive Dees fans, as discovered when I rocked in wearing my Narrm beanie. 
Other customers lined up as the bloke and I chatted footy. My kids then started singing Grand Old Flag as we ate succulent fresh lobster and perfectly cooked fish n chips - highly recommend. 
Oh and his Mrs reckons we’re a shoe-in for the flag. 
We’ll be on Kangaroo Island tomorrow night, but I’ll shout CARNAFCKNDEES across the water.

Playing with broken ribs won’t make the injury worse (unlike other injuries). It’s a question of pain management and whether he can withstand the pain or not. I reckon he has a high pain threshold.

Im wondering if there will be a fitness test an hour before the game. I think Mad Micky Malthouse hoppo bumpo someone before a final about 30 years ago until he made the late change.

The only fresh legs are on a bloke with 2 cracked ribs and a hurt vertebrae.

Very strange given 5 day break,  but I am not in the FD.

They have known and planned for this 5 day break. I trust that they have a carefully executed plan heading into a bye soon.

Really thought they would give May another week. 5 days doesn't make a great deal of difference with ribs.

But then again this is Steven May, the Terry Funk of footy.

It was Malthouse who failed the bump test on his previously dislocated shoulder at Thursday training and missed out on playing in the 1982 Richmond flag.

Carlton won the 1982 premiership.

Big danger game. Yes, the club wants to win but it seems crazy so early in the season to select players who are injured, banged up or sick. I expect all the players even the fit ones are going to be fatigued but to include a guy with broken ribs and others with a range of injuries is high risk. A case of the walking wounded. It’s one thing to get through a limited  training session but quite another to get through the physicality and intensity of 4 Q against a desperate opposition. There should be no risks taken at this time with any player.

SEN Sportsday’s Brad Johnson explained why he has the Crows winning despite the side sitting 0-3 and not welcoming back any big names bar Butts.

“I just think they’re not going to start 0-4, I just can’t see them losing at home to Melbourne off another short break,” Johnson said.

“Steven May of course (comes back) … but I just think Adelaide will get it right on their home deck.

“It’s a big game, Thursday night footy and I think their stars will come to play.

“I think Jordan Dawson will lead extremely well even though the pressure is on

Compelling argument by Johnson.

Not.

danger game v Crows. 

Crows have their backs to the wall and under pressure to not go 0-4

Dees on alert 

Is thinking this too,  it the pressure equally will make you do under characteristic things too that may deviate from plan. 
 

You can take a lead out of Pies book from last week. They still look horrible out of form but they did the basics well. Pressure and contest and they ended up winning.

At least the Crows only have one extra day, but with a trip back from Perth. So both are disadvantaged in a way. 
 

It sounds like the club are turning this fixture debacle into a positive and setting up a mini hub for the week. The last time we were in a hub we won a flag. 

I think so.  I thought it was a mistake last year not to stay in SA for the week.

    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.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
