He did get 9 coaches votes in a game before his injury so he hasn't been what you call average the WHOLE year. Some very over critical posters on this forum I reckon.

Sure, but as I said he's been very average by his standards the whole year. I'm judging him by the entirety of the whole year, as opposed to cherry picking form from one match.

I've seen a lot of AMW and Woewodin, I rank AMW higher.

If Woewodin is getting an edge because of his illustrious name, it isn't only dispiriting to the players not chosen but is poor club culture, which is infectious.

But others better placed to judge than this correspondent 

You can't fault Chandler's effort. If his selection is marginal I might give him a tick. A player giving all compels his team mates to greater effort.

We all know that Oliver, fit and firing, is a champion.

It is simply a fact that he had a terrible game tonight in a midfield that was completely smashed by the opposition.

Petracca, another champion, also had an off night.

Obviously we all want to see Clarry back at his dominating best. But so far this season he has been a shadow of the player we know he can be, and if he does not regain form he would not be worth the money he is on. Again, that's simply a fact in the brutal world of football.

I would be delighted if he produces man-of-the-match performances for the rest of the season.

 

FFS HE IS INJURED😤

Looking past the disposal count in games, he's been very average by his standards the whole year (I'm not suggesting he's past it though, by any stretch). But to say he was 'killing it' this year, even prior to injury, is viewing his season with a high amount of recency bias with regards to his previous seasons. 

Wasn't he bog v the dogs?

He was good against Hawks 

But since his hand in the last two has struggled.

Maybe killing it was too strong.

 they remind me of young Stretch and JKH........... good at VFL level but not possessing the spark necessary to crack AFL

Hope I'm wrong

Pretty tough on AMW who hasn't even had a look at AFL.  I will reserve judgement.

This in a nutshell 👆👆

Didn’t worry  us last year with Clarry out.

Why didn’t the Coaches change the mids positioning and also personnel ie Rivers  say in 2nd quarter. Even say changing Harry with Tmac to get him into the game.

Hood too often makes changes to positions etc after the result is almost or a foregone conclusion. Needs to act in the 2nd quarter not 4th.

2023 was a hard year to watch re: Clayton out

I was hoping this year would be different, with our pressure on the ball carrier being through the roof

Lions smacked and cannoned into us all night

Goody won’t make changes - he sticks to structure

How can you judge over a WHOLE year after 6 rounds? Are you a seer?

    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

    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
