Glad to see the flags added - that's new isnt it?

Personally I'm torn between appreciation of Indigenous representation and dislike of 'love hearts'.

As for the flags being on this year, I suspect that's a product of finally resolving the long and bitter legal dispute about commercial IP 'ownership' of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags.

I believe that we got absolutely everything right in 2021 including our Indigenous Guernsey and that should be our “gold standard” going forward. Once you reach perfection it is hard to emulate.!!

Long story of the representation of the flags.  In short a few years ago the rights to the flag were sold to a clothing company who decided to exploit it for monetary gain, to the point where they were charging exorbanent fees for the use of the image and not investing it in indigenous programs like they promised. In fact they were threatening to sue people for using the flag without paying for it, which lead to a campaign to reclaim the rights and boycott that company.  AFL were supportive of that campaign and they refused to pay to use the rights.  Last year the federal government bought the rights back and made the use of the flag available for everyone to use again.

i may have shed a little tear watching that

i was sure that the kid wasn't going to still be with us

fabulous he is

It's such a beautiful story, I'm so glad KC is healthy now.  How amazing is Mali for her paying tribute to her little brother like that!

I don't know why we don't wear these jumpers as the default, so much better than the default.  I get the history, but this shows history and progress.  Absolutely love it.

Love the front, hate the back. You’d think Hertz might get into the spirit and have a logo that worked for this special jumper.

Cannot stand the inclusion of Hertz. If you have time, listen to "The Dollop" podcast when they did a review of the history of the Hertz company.  We really should think a bit more about who we are partnering with as a club!

Here’s hoping we can do these jumpers proud this year. Our recent indigenous jumpers haven’t seen much onfield success. Need to fix that pronto.

p.s. That is a magnificent piece of art by Mali.

A lovely story and a beautiful design.

Very proud of our players and club.

The Hertz logo looks like dogs knackers on the back though. Imagine how much better it would look if the colours were at least matched up. 

On another note, being interstate, we've had foxtel for years and I've always felt a bit bad about funding the Murdoch's. We've at least dropped back to Kayo now, so less money to them.

That sky news interview with the 18 year old kid that won the million bucks was one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen from that channel. And there's a lot to usually choose from.

I'll find it very hard to listen to the fox footy platitudes being laid out thick for the Doug Nicholls rounds when their sister station delivers such dog whistling stereotype racist BS.

Ahh good old Sky News. The Australian equivalent of Fox News. They’re soooo far right, they’re almost left 🤣

    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
