NON-MFC: Round 09



Recommended Posts

Interestingly, if the top 4 win their games there will be a two game break (1.5 wins to be exact) between 4th and 5th. Either way, if we win we'll either move up the ladder or get that break on 5th to 8th heading into two games that are well spaced apart against teams outside the 8.

Some big "8" point games this weekend.

From an MFC viewpoint I think it best to look for an outcome that reduces the number of top 4 contenders (as Stu says above)

On that basis I'm hoping for wins to

Geelong

Sydney

GWS and

Adelaide

Another very big game for us

Seems such an overly long season although in reality it's simply that at this stage of our "window" it's all about the finals series with the Home and Away being a necessary prelude. (This must be what Hawthorn supporters perhaps felt.)

Of course this weekend's football is up against the phenomenally successful Eurovision Song Contest.

Don't miss Croatia's Baby Lasagna (singing Rim Tim Tagi Dim) . You never know might be a candidate for the Tassie team's theme song.

i reckon flagmantle can knock off sydney and norf to surprise gc17 in a slipper game in darwin, but i'm not brave enough to tip either

GC usually have their best fortnight of the year in Darwin and then fall off the cliff. Therefore tipping Norf would he be beyond brave.

Freo could definitely knock off Sydney in Perth if they’re at their best.

Why play two good games concurrently on friday night?

The round is pretty much done after Friday night

The double header on Friday night is due to having one less game on Mother’s Day. That one looks to be a staple in the fixture.

After Friday night, Ess/GWS and Adelaide/Brisbane should be good games.

I can see some upsets this round, specifically Hawks, Tigers and banged up Brisbane all winning.

Don't Port have a surprisingly good record at Geelong? Or am i just imagining that?

But their "outs" this week are damaging. Unfortunately I feel an easy win for the "puddycats". Scott's presser should be worth listening too. Ugh.

We've been taking all of Ports games at Kardinia Park.

Since 2013 Port have only played Geelong there 4 times. Geelong have won all 4.

They have met 17 times in that period. 3 of those were finals. 2 in Adelaide and 1 at the MCG.

All the remaining games (10) have been played at Adelaide Oval (8) or Footy Park (1) with 1 game on the Gold Coast during COVID in 2020.

Gee tigs v dogs will be interesting 

Of course Collingwood get West coast as they're getting back on the winning list. But at least they have to travel to marvel. 

Hoping gws can beat the bummers

    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?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    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
