POSTGAME: Rd 04 vs Adelaide



Recommended Posts

It was two wins from two games on the road for the Demons as they easily cruised past the Crows before the 5 day break took it's toll in the last eventually downing Adelaide by 15 points.

Incredible effort. Surely we've just done something no club has ever done before - knock of both of a non Vic state's sides over there in consecutive weeks.

Great effort to beat both Adelaide clubs in 5 days. Major confidence builder. Awesome stuff Melbourne!

Oh yeah - TOP OF THE LADDER - Go DEES!

What a trip for the club. Take the points and get the hell out of there!

Strange night on the stats sheet again. Lots of players down on numbers. Got it done though

Great effort by the boys tonight. Up against a team with extra players, short break, banged up and a playing in front of a hostile crowd. Great to get the win and now have a little extra rest before we are back at home!

Was not hoping for nerves in that qtr but we would have been gassed and held them up really well in the end.

We take 4 points and won both games in Adelaide, with only 5 days break. Can’t imagine that was pencilled in at the start of the year.  Can’t argue with that! How good is McVee? Caleb was impressive.

Great effort boys - bring on the Lions then a well deserved break.

Not one for a 'Name a Game' VHS but great to win ugly off a 5 day break and three extra players for the Crows.

Blake Howes being a gun defender was not on my 2024 bingo card but I'm all for it.

Would have taken 3-3 before opening round and most certainly after it, to be 4-2 or 5-1 at the bye is a HUGE result for this team. Our best is yet to come.

Steven May take an absolute bow. What a star!!!

A great team performance, against the umps, off a 5 day break, against a team that desperately needed a win at their home ground. 
 

So proud of this club, after all the garbage we had thrown at us this off season, we didn’t let it impact us instead we said “watch this” 🫡

Can’t complain about getting 8 premiership points in Adelaide 

As sweet as it gets.

Stuck it up the Afl.

The umpires.

The fans.

And commentators.

Now let's get home.

A win was all we needed. I knew Adelaide were going to be competitive as they were under enormous pressure coming into this game.

Trac was our best by a fair margin. He set the tone in the first half. Windsor continues to impress. His composure is next level for a 5th gamer.

Winning two games in Adelaide within five days is a bloody good effort if you ask me.

    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

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
