POSTGAME: Rd 05 vs Brisbane



Recommended Posts


Haven't seen them that cooked in a long time, Adelaide trip killed us. Only 22 points in the end as well softens the blow a little. 4-2 with a long break to come. Ain't all too bad.

Where was the effort from the 4th in the first 3 quarters?

As for Petty, 2 touches from an entire game………a limbless person could do better. He can go, thinks he’s a king and yet is lazy with a poor attitude.

What a soft lazy effort this was, outnumbered at the contest all night, second to the ball all night, worst performance for years. Premiership contenders don't put on performances like this.

Sorry boys, not a performance to be proud of. Smashed everywhere. Score is flattering. Should have been 50pts.

I had us at 3-3 at this point, so I’ll take 4-2. We need to rest up and regroup over the bye to make sure we treat this as the exception in our season.

That was abhorrent.

As disinterested as you could look from the start.

Smashed at the contest and lazy spreading away. 

I believe we sit around 6-9th. 

Don't play injured players out of position.

3 tough weeks, everyone clearly spent from the get go. I'll take 2/3.

Salem out hurt us early and nobody but Max able to get to the level. 

Posters throwing toys out of the cot need to reflect on all the other times they've overreacted. Shouldn't have to go back too far to find examples.

Move on, take the flattering scoreboard into the bye and hit our winter at the G from a solid 4-2 position.

Go Dees.

For 3 quarters that was the worse we've played in a very very long time.

The backmen can hold their heads up high, so can Ed Langdon and Trent Rivers(if you don't include him as part of the backline). Rest of em utterly terrible.

Also, how we added Grundy(lol), Hunter, Schache, Billings and McAdam to a premiership list is a big reason why we haven't won another flag. Utter [censored].

I honestly don't even think we were that bad. We were slow and battered and Brisbane absolutely came out firing. If our worst equates to a 22 point loss against a full strength Brisbane then I'll take that. Richmond and Collingwood both had far worse outings in their Premiership winning years.

Just now, whatwhat say what said:

I know it was only 22 but that feels like the worst loss in five years
 

3 games in 12 days was a bridge too far

It’s a long season

It was

    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
