My 3 word player analysis V Adelaide, the dumb crowd and the dumber umpires



Recommended Posts

Gawn - great without dominating 

Viney - great first half

Petracca - class above everyone 

Salem - not always convincing 

Fritsch - classy ten minutes 

May - brave and impressive 

Lever - continued excellent season

McDonald - turned career around 

Neal Bullen - some impressive moments 

Sparrow - is becoming elite

Howes - maturity belies experience 

vanRooyen - was almost exciting

Langdon - running game returns

Oliver - lacked smooth transitions

Rivers - was mostly classy

McVee - career best game

Windsor - a smooth operator 

Petty - slowly finding form

 Brown - was rarely sighted

 Chandler - great first half

Woewodin - had limited opportunities 

Billings - wasted easy conversions

Pickett - exciting but undisciplined

Billings will not want to watch that game again.  Snatching at chances is one thing, but that attempt at a tackle on Rankin was not our brand.

Needs at least a few weeks at Casey

joeboy - nailed it convincingly 

As an encore for the last Saturday’s heroics not an easy watch. Bayley Fritsch’s cameo almost worth the cost of admission.

Back to regular away game service from the adjudicators. The team within the local team.  Holding the ball, incorrect disposal simply erased from the rule book. Either serial non- decisions, a crow ‘rewarded’ with a free kick or balls it up.

Steven May - man of steel

I can't remember doing the double against the Crows and Powa in the same home and away season, this seems to be a first for mine.

Stand to be corrected.

In 2022 we beat Port in round 4 and then Adelaide in round 16. Both in Adelaide.

Fritta only needs to play about ten mins a game to change it's trajectory.

Definitely an issue. Many would have seen him grimace (at a training session?) when a fan went to shake his injured hand.

I'd like to know the exact problem. A broken bone? Does the club expect it to heal over the bye?

MacDonald  continues with commitment 

He started as a backman, but his disposal was diabolical.

Moved to the forward line where he just had to kick at goal! His disposal has improved 100%. 

He has got slower, so getting the ball and turning towards goal is no longer feasible. Much better defending/attacking the ball without have to turn. Good on him!!

Re BT. Total fool. "Wowee" and "no trouble at all" seem to be his favourites.

Re King. He flip flops so much. Someone referred to his "inane overanalysis". That description was spot on! 

The one commentator who loves the Dees is Montagna.

Those pesky umpires caused Billings to miss 3 goals why didn't they just let him have them again I say....

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
