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....

    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

    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
