Question:

Where does fritters goal rank in the great Demon goals?

The one he kicked after Harmes hit him lace out? 😅

Second to Allen Jakovich's over the head one for me... 👆

I mentioned our I50 efficiency last week and this week it was good again at 51% with 27 shots from 52 I50 entries.

Why are people bemoaning our gameplan when we're getting more looks at goal per I50 than we've had in a long time?

Not a question rather an observation. Tommy Mac has been enormous for us and had another great game tonight. I don’t think he receives the plaudits he deserves. The backline looks even better with Tommy back down there.

Love the podcast - never miss an episode.

What about Jakovic's scissor kick?

How mammoth was Max in the last quarter. 9 possessions, 4 clearances and a goal?

I was worried that Max might have been injured early because he was off the ground for a large chunk of the 2nd quarter. Didn't realise until the end that he had a concussion test.

I reckon you also have to take into account the stage of the game and the importance of the game. Super late in the 4th , less than a goal the difference,  4 v 1 ( with 1 unbeaten) is a big time in a big game. Jacko kicked that scissor goal as part of a big win against the roos just before 3/4 time. I vote for Fritters

What are your feelings / thoughts on Billings. Im not sure he's bringing that much anymore.  Does Bowey come in and switch some positions around to replace him.

Agreed. He's also just a great foil for Cameron. Has the legs and the height to go with him.

I already know the answer but I’ll ask anyway. Will the media give Goody the recognition he deserves for the tactical masterclass? Scott mentioned that his players were off, which they were, however they were off because Goody didn’t allow the cats to play the type of game that they were expecting/wanting to play. Thoughts?

Maybe the additional question is - what reasons woudn't the media give Goodwin the recognition? I just assume Scott is trying to protect his players, and will be quite concerned behind the scenes... he's a great coach with a great team around him, and they've got a bit to nut out. They'd also understand  we could have won by 4-6 goals...

Totes agree!
 

TMac in the backline seems to have lifted Levers game allowing him to play back to his intercepting best. TMac has also taken the pressure off May having to take on all the all the Gorilla opposition forwards and resting rucks. May seems to be back near his best as well.

Hello men,

Love the podcast and you're contributions to the club. We are very lucky to have you guys involved and your positive analysis (although Binman would suggest it is an even analysis) has helped me to appreciate the game a lot more.

My observation last night in a tide of positives, all well deserved, is of an opposition player in Zac Guthrie. He had a great game. I know we held (possibly through Turner ) Stewart to a low involvement in the game, but I wonder if they were happy to let that happen as long as Guthrie was having such an impact. I thought Nibbler had a poor game by his standards, but was more worried by the efforts of Billings and Chandler. I think Guthrie played on, or more, ran off Chandler for most of the night. Do the team see this as a concern moving forward.

I think we should look at developing a taller half forward option as it looked to me to be one of the only negatives on a great night. With the availability of McAdam and Melksham after the bye, I think Billings and Maybe Chandler have put their spots in danger.

Thanks and Go Dees

Is Fritta one of the Afls premier forwards? Both Cameron and Hawkins kept scoreless. 

Fritta's not far from Coleman leader in Curnow. I think he's very underrated. Is he?

Can we talk about our elite kicks on the list?

What's our top 5 for kicking skills?

Fritsch 

McVee

Salem

Windsor

Kozzy

Do you agree?

Maybe you can add Bowser and Rivers.

He's definitely in AA considerations this year.

Billings is a better field kick than say Windsor ans rivers.

Def elite. His field kicking yesterday was sublime.

Hi guys,

id like to get your thoughts on the 49 possession and 21 marks combined for the Lever and May combo.

i watched them closely and they hold each other so accountable and are always providing real time feedback. I believe this has taken their game to a new level.

id also like to hear the praises for our young star Duke Windsor. How unbelievable were his 2 tackles, so strong for such a young player and he does now remind me of a young Robbie Flower. Run down tackles that end up in goals are my favourite!!!

keep up the good work - love the pod.

No he's not. Why was he subbed off? Ironically he was good in the third before being subbed. Watch his disposals in the first half.

Huge win, very pleased.

Good to see Petty run into some form, i like this role too, up the ground more where his leading patterns don't matter as much but we can move the ball quickly if he clunks it around the wing which means we can change angles and get better fwd options.

It also allows him to help the defence out and play his natural game of attacking the footy in the air.  The inclusion of Turner has allowed this to happen. 

Also, i wasn't sure about you Woey as a def, but could he be that lock down small defender we have been craving since Jetts retired?

I tipped us - and we kept the cats to the target score or 60-70 points.  We can beat anyone if we manage that from a defensive perspective.

Simply want to shout out to the crowd - it was great to be a demon amongst that crowd.  When we won, it was wonderful! Go Dees!

Hi guys, looking forward to another great podcast. The stat that we had 5 players with 10 games or less, and McVee with not too many more, is just so heartening. The fact that these guys, Windsor excepted are “no names” as far as the afl industry is concerned, gives real confidence that our beloved dees have finally matured into a modern great club.

Your thoughts?

    GAMEDAY: Rd 19 vs Fremantle

    It's Game Day and the Demons have a golden opportunity to stamp their 2024 finals credentials as well as make amends for their disastrous first meeting against the Dockers earlier in the season when they take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a

    HEAVENS ABOVE by Molly Melbourne

    Who said the football gods and scoreboard attendants at the MCG don’t have a sense of humour? The gods spent a whole week teasing Demon and Bomber fans alike about Saturday night’s game. About how the entire match would be dominated by the hulking, brooding figures of 205cm Sam Draper and his 2IC Peter Wright lapping it up in the absence of Melbourne skipper and the club's No.1, No 2, No 3 and No 4 ruckman Max Gawn in the wake of that ankle injury. They painted pictures of Simon Goodwin ne

    It’s game day and the Demons face a massive test which may determine whether they have what it takes to play finals this season. The task has been made all the more difficult without their Premiership Captain Max Gawn.
