Was this done via public complaining? No 

We asked for it privately for 20 years and my understanding is that we finally got it, but were screwed in other ways such as being one of the unlucky ones to play an SA team in gather round, and travel to Perth twice.

Have a look at Carlton’s fixture and tell me the AFL isn’t frothing at giving them a flag this year. 

That's pretty much how it went down.

HQ will be mighty [censored] if we knock off both of their S.A. babies in consecutive weeks.  Bloody hope so.

Also reckon they are probably 'all-in' on the Baggers, GWS or any other interstater for the flag.

Geelong also have a 5 day break and they have to travel, and played in ridiculous weather with a delay. We are not that hard done by.

Agreed. I don’t think we have anything to complain about. If anything I think our draw this year is outstanding. 5 day break is a pain in the bum but having both games as away games in the one city eases it. 
Also we have an extra days break for the game next week and the lions are away from home on consecutive weeks in different cities. 
To top it of when then get a 2 week bye afterwards which I think is probably the best time to have our first bye. Gives us an advantage over all other clubs bar Richmond.

We really should win tonight. Adelaide are in terrible form, while we’ve been in good form.They have a complete no name backline and have rung in 5 changes with no-names going in for no-names going out. 

I know some will use a 5-day break excuse, but Adelaide have had a 6 day break and had to fly back from Perth. They just don’t have the cattle to beat us. Unless some flu goes through the club, I just can’t see us losing.

The 5 day break is a furphy . Adelaide had a 6 day break and had to travel back late on the Friday night. We don't have to travel as we are already in Adelaide.

Fitness won't be a problem for us.

It's a bit weird knowing we have been in Adelaide for more consecutive days prior to this game than the team called Adelaide.

Is he available for the mother ,son draft

Unfortunately he’s not at all interested in footy. Not one of my sons is even slightly interested in footy. I must’ve done something heinous in a previous life, maybe mass murder. They’re hipsters and I’m a loudmouth bogan mum, apparently. 🙄

This morning at 3:30am no one I know was awake so I sent a flurry of excited Go Dees messages to my firstborn who lives in Poland. He responded…

I just walked past four awesome Dees fans, namely Max, Jess, George and Louis Gawn. Pushing the pram and blending in just like any other family out shopping. Any other family where the dad’s a 10-foot beanpole that is.

I hope you gave Max your autograph. 😂

Hunter, Laurie, Spargo, AMW, Woewodin, Fullarton, Tholstrup, Melksham, Tomlinson, McAdam, Adams, Brown, Turner, Sestan all are attempting to break into the side. It's funny when you're winning, even your depth looks fantastic. It was less than a month ago I was bemoaning our thin list. :)

Bookies have us $1.60 when my gut feel is we should be unbackable at $1.10.

 

This is not going to be a walk over. The only certain win right now is West Coast. We have to come out and start well to take the crowd out of the equation.

My beautiful, bossy, molto talented wife is Polish. When I told the woman at Europa cakes in Carnegie that my wife is Polish, she replied, Polish girls keep you on your toes. I replied, But I'm not a ballerina!

My advice to people is: A; I have double Kneemonia. I was previously married to a Phys ED teacher - hence the roonation of my knees. Never marry a Phys Ed teacher.

B; Never marry a Polish woman unless you are a good housewife. ( My wife, a published Novelist, playwright, Short story writer has just shown me the new novel she has written. She is a Genius.)

We are absolutey the last team that you want to be playing against when your forward line isn't firing because the margin for error is so thin. a smashing is on the cards here.

I wouldn’t say there’s that much depth there really.

Still really irks me with the whole Hunter/ Jordan thing, Hunters got the old man calf injury & Jordon is flourishing at Sydney

    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.
