GAMEDAY: Rd 07 vs Richmond



Recommended Posts

It's Game Day and the Demons once again open the round of football with their annual clash against Richmond on ANZAC Eve. The Tigers, coached by former Dees champion and Premiership assistant coach Adem Yze have a plethora of stars missing due to injury but beware the wounded Tiger. The Dees will have to be switched on tonight. A win will keep them in the hunt for the Top 4 whilst a loss could see them fall out of the 8 for the first time since 2020.

Managed to get out of a 7 pm meeting, can't wait to watch and cheer from the couch 😁  Encourage the boys for me, those of you lucky enough to go in person!

Shame you can’t be at the game, DP. We’ll cheer extra loud for you! Hope to see you at the ‘G sometime soon. ❤️💙

CARNA MIGHTY DEES!!!

Thanks WCW!  You always blow the opposition out of the water with your shouts of support 😁  I'm working on my next escape plan for the 'G and hope to see you (and our boys!!) soon!  ❤💙

I'm certain OOZE will be pushing every coaching button known to win this one. But it it just aint going to happen!  

I predict we will be up and about tonight and get away to a flyer and go to a comfortable win.

I would really like to see a blinder from Clarrie to show the footy world he's back to being the superstar we Dees fans know. I also reckon Kozzie will enjoy the big stage and produce some magic.

Dees by 30 points.

This night has become my favourite home and away game. It's hauntingly beautiful build up is something to behold. So proud our country and game continues to give the respect and love to those taken from their families and loved ones. 

This one will be the first without our beloved RDB, which makes it even more emotional. 

I personally lost an uncle I never knew on HMAS Sydney. Another uncle was a POW in Changi. A postcard he sent from there is a one of my most treasured possessions.

Fortunately, both my, and my wife's, father came back to us, relatively unscathed. Of course, we never really know the mental scars they lived with. 

Our club lost at least 30 players in the word wars and countless injured and I love that our B & F is named after one of them. 

I will be there, no doubt with a tear in my eye, but it won't be due to the result. 

❤️💙🇦🇨

Turner offers us flexibility forward and back, as does Petty and even TMAC.  Also there could be a weather dependence on who gets a run - Laurie .woey if wet, Disco if dry.

We've got so many of them now, they might need to form their own club like the Wingers.

Maybe call it The Swingers Club?

Oh dear

Our coaching team sometimes doesn't seem to respond quickly to counter opposition strategies at times.

Could be quite fascinating to see what Ooze puts on the table tonight. I don't know if he's got the cattle on the field but it should make for great viewing. Especially with BT and Selwood's thoughtful insights.
"Woweeeee" - "The tigers aren't getting their hands on the ball."

Might find that SEN app

Go Dees and enjoy the night to those getting along. Shout your guts out for us

Have we ever been as excited to see a player who was a mid season rookie draft selection and has played 3 games in 3 years, as we are excited to see Disco?

 

From what I've seen he looks the goods and I'm excited for him to play! I just reflect on how anti messiah he is.

are we too tall for a wet game?

Possibly. Although that would be worse with BBB than Disco.

We could see Disco as sub still, leaving a winger (Windsor), a mid (Laurie), a forward (Sparrow) and a defender (Woey) on the bench.

The only way to watch. Is with no sound.

why listen to drivel, if you are on D’land you know as much about football as the clowns on the box. Very few have much insight, and not the main ones.

Closed room, the dog in the other room, yell as loud as you want. Go Dee’s

I think the weather will be okay tonight, according to the Bom anyway the bulk of the rain will be done by lunchtime...hopefully.  Bit ordinary that we get worried in the wet though.

Laurie would want to absolutely "bring it" tonight, bit miffed that Kolt got dropped but hopefully he'll be back soon.  

GO DEES GAME DAY HELL YEAH!!!

The time is here and I’m putting out a gameday PSA.

If you have never been to the ANZAC eve game before I strongly encourage you to get along tonight. I know it’s an away game but the pre match ceremony is truly something the be seen in person. 

“They shall not grow old” and great words but I believe that nights like this really put that into practice. We all enjoy living in this great country and this night is for all of us. 

I myself have a deep personal connection with WW2. While my background is Greek, my grandfather and my great uncle served in the RAAF in New Guinea. They both returned but had their lives changed forever from that point on. I’ll always be proud of what these two and many others sacrificed so could live the lives we do today and I’m always thinking of them during the minutes silence. 

Regardless of your background or what you believe this night/day is for you and again if you’ve never experienced it I would seriously consider getting along tonight or to the dawn service at the Shrine tomorrow which I’ll also be attending. 

And lastly, go the mighty Dees!

    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
