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

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.

    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

    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.
