Huge chance Dees to make a huge statement.

One change only - Kozzie will be missed but the excitement of a new Kolt may almost cancel that out.  Certainly looks as dynamic and as strong as Kozz.  Will he make Kozz earn his return for ANZAC Eve?

Backline settled and working beautifully as a UNIT / TEAM.  Midfield always prepared for good hard go and a forward line working with better structure and some smart delivery to space by the likes of Duke Tracc Spaz ANB with Frittata slipping unnoticed out the back often enough.  And Clarrie at 70% is so much better than many others at 100% - just wait,

I must add JVR's back up ruck work is very good for one s0 young who is not a "natural ruckman".

Tonight's game is just about one of those famous "eight pointers" !  Going into the bye with 5 in a row and just one loss would be a huge start to the season.

Brisvegas , on the other hand, is facing a disastrous start so they'll be  flat out to recover their season.

Our backs have been pretty slick. Big Joe will find May rather more difficult than some kid from Norf and I can't see Dipwood getting on top of a rejuvenated TMac. As always Charlie ( super player)  will be the danger and a real challenge/experience for McVee.

Max Trac and Viney will win the crucial Mids battle ( Neale's 250th notwithstanding) but what would really seal the deal is a big one from Oliver - it's due.

Kozzie leaves a hole for sure but it has provided an opportunity for the "Kolt" - good luck kid.

Hopefully BBB draws a crowd and allows the others a little more space. Fritta kicks 4 and we win. A couple from Trac sneaking forward would also help cover Kozzie's usual contribution.

Really looking forward to watching Windsor again - this kid is pure class and quickly becoming a favourite. ( I'm also starting to understand  the comparisons with our famous number 2)

That's a bit long winded for me but your poor old Uncle Bitter has been a bit under the weather of late and couldn't sleep! A life time of hedonism may finally be catching up.

Prediction. Dees to win by 9 or a full blow out and a 39 point victory.

Happy days - go Dees!

Back in Amsterdam for this one. Due to all the global daylight savings going-ons, this is the most friendly intercontinental time-slot that I can recall for some time, such that I can order a beer while watching with . . . not exactly pride . . . but less shame. For the local peeps, is Coco's the only go?

The 2021 vibe lid will be completely blown off if we win it tonight

And I'm very confident we will 

Haven't much to add, reckon BBO nailed all the talking points

Stil think Salem is well below his best at the moment

Perhaps if Bowey was fit Salem would be dropped

For me that lid will become slightly ajar when we beat Geelong and Carlton in successive weeks

I thought Mini and BBO. Nailed it. 
 

important game. Not one to lose, 

JVR work around the ground is so very important.  A work in progress. But getting better each time. 
 

is it going to be wet  pity. Hope it stays dry

definitely an eight point game.  Make a statement Demons !

Salem has lost his drive. Lacks acceleration and kicking penetration.

We are winning , but the stats say that we are doing it  little differently. Losing inside 50, easier to score against and less effective at clearances. 
 

Will have to reverse a lot of that against Lions to win. The Lions are offensively strong but are really poor defensively so we will definitely get our looks. Kick accurately, apply pressure around the contest and take advantage of our chances and we will win.

Easy, right?

Nervous for this game, especially with Oliver being a rumoured late out (suspect Laurie will be in the inclusion if this eventuates). 

One of the biggest threats for tonight will be Bailey, IMO. He always seems to bob-up against us. 

So far this season I've been incredibly impressed and surprised by what I've seen on-field (by far surpassing my expectations at this stage). A win tonight will help instil belief and agree, that it may be a prelude of things to come (dare I say it), à la 2021.

It would be wrong to expect a walkover.

We'll do our best.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    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

    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
