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.

And the 7 commentators didn't mention it once.

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....

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

    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.
