Petty, BBB, JVR and Fritta a combined 0 marks between them.

Well Fritsch did have a mark but the Brisbane player illegally chopped his arms.

It all comes down to the midfield. We are getting smashed in clearances and contested possessions. That’s the game. 
You can’t blame the forwardline when the midfield is not able to win the ball.

Look very flat, 2 hard games with 5 day breaks … not sure why we never  have tall fwds  when the ball is going fwd 

BBB should be deep inside the 50 and trying to attract Harris Andrews attention. Instead we keep hoping that JVR can compete with a veteran Backman.

What's disappointing about that is that he used to clunk everything for Casey.

He's OK when the ball comes in soft but not when it comes in with pace.

Tall key forwards Petty BBB JVR - one solitary disposal to half time.

Add Frittata - 2 disposals between them

As a team performance this is about as bad as it gets, hardly anyone winning their position can't see us getting out of this

We look tired;  BBB, Petty Billings nothing

 

Shot to bits.

We butchered two attacking thrusts in that last little peroid.

We had them cold and reduced the deficit by a couple of goals.

Terrible football.

No it's his marking technique full stop.

Well he's two disposals above Bbb. .Fritta and Petty the latter who has had zero touches.

Petty no touches in a half.....hmmm.

This is simplistic. We are down in all areas aside from goal accuracy compared to last year and we are getting smoked by a team that is going moderate to good in all areas aside from accuracy. Just so happens there slotting them tonight.

Easy shots given.

You may be right. I do know that he can't be dishing up what he has been. Take the damn game on. There's a point in time where we may as well give Jefferson an earlier than expected crack.

I think Norf put up a better fight against them last week. 

We are kicking a score similar to a Hawthorn or North tbh.

The inexperience of our youngsters, Windsor, Howes, JVR and McVee, is showing.
And our experienced forwards, Brown, Petty, Fritter, are out of position when the ball comes in.

Clarrie is obviously hampered by his hand and is pretty much useless tonight.

Agree we’ve been [censored], but I’m ready to jump the fence and deck one of these useless umpires.

* violence apparently doesn’t solve anything. I might find out later.

And when we win it we give it back.

Did anyone else get the feeling we were talking up our wins in Adelaide too much.

Like we had just one a final.

Clearly we were very happy with these wins 

So much so we have given up on this one 

A very poor performance.

Very poor 

From the top down.

And a shout out to Kozzie...well played sitting on the sidelines.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    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

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
