Does Demonland ever write to the club? I reckon it has the standing and authority to do so. It would certainly have my support.

Appalling clear bias, NB #22 who always screws us, but we did lose it in the first quarter.

We don’t have an Eddie Maguire to yell all over the media about it like would happen if this was Collingwood so I’d support that for sure. 
 

That level of umpiring can’t just be let go.

Thank you so much.

Not just the ones not paid but 11 frees to Carlton in the first to our three was putrid. That's equivalent  to 44 to 12 for a game. Who wouldn't object to that?

Most of them were just soft gimees and then in the last quarter the umpires remember there is a htb rule.

Instead of all the ones they missed prior.

I really hope we ask for an explanation but it won't change anything.

Umps seriously looked like having an agenda tonight and that free called dangerous helped them achieve it.

Despite our poor start we would have won if the umpires did their job without bias.

They got sucked in four times with dob by the crowd.

Cowards . 

It really puts one off the game when they get umpired like this.

Bad calls both ways, particularly in first half. It's not the reason we lost.

IMO, I think with the JvR tackle, Blues player's left knee digs into the turf and drives the hips up and upper body forward and down with momentum and JvR's body weight, his body jerks and doesn't go down smoothly. Just unlucky.

He had zero ability to stop hitting the ground the way he did. It was holding the ball 100% but I don’t agree that he milked it in any way.

Yep. Needs to be fined 10k for staging if the AFL are serious about head injuries. 
He could have really hurt him self by his attempt to cheat.

I respectfully disagree. I reckon it was holding the ball too until I saw his knee dig into the turf. Lucky we didn't get 50 metres playing on thru Langdon and Pickett.

Not how I saw it. He got caught , panicked and did what he could to make it look bad.

And now the touched Curnow kick, instantly claimed by the toucher, May, AND the player right there, Rivers.

SO much to be riled by.

We all know that the AFL are total hypocrites about the head being sacrosanct.   They pick and choose when to crack down.  They are as disgraceful an organisation as FIFA and the IOC.

My main beef with umpiring is when bad decisions in the first half effect the momentum of a game more so than a bad one towards the end.

No it was not why we lost, the first quarter did that,  but poor umpiring should not be acceptable and if one particular umpire only pays frees one way. There should be questions asked. 
we should ask the head of the umpires why. Make them justify those decisions.

make ourselves heard. Not necessarily in the media.

In the pre match thread I said I was not bullish about the match because of a huge number of variables, including:

- what, if any, impact will the umpires have on the game?

You don't think 11 to 3 in the first quarter was unreasonable,? Those dob were very soft. That none or our tackles got us a htb decision in the first 3 quarters then it's paid everywhere? That the call of dangerous tackle cost us a goal and the four points?

You should get a job umpiring.

Seriously that was an atrocious effort by the umpires tonight.

It actually put me off the game.

That they could give that many soft frees in the first twenty mins of the game was just silly and uncalled for. About four of them were strong frees and they missed about four of ours. 

Then they stopped giving frees pretty much. Half handed out in one quarter. why?

The game was over at quarter time so I guess they didn't have to do anything else.

A classic case of over umpiring. And yet not for genuine htb. They ignored all of Carlton's incorrect disposal for three quarters for some reason.

Last week we couldn't sneeze without the umps pinging us for htb.

So, what are you all going to do about it?

Don't rely on the club, they obviously won't. They never have.

How about giving some feedback to the AFL yourselves.

Seriously, if we want change, we need to take action ourselves.

(Booing like Carlton fans doesn't count )

Anyone want to drag up the email address for the head of umpiring and the AFL ceo?

I'm happy to give direct feedback.

We didn't deserve to win but... we would have with effective umpiring 

DM me, their email address.

They are politicians.

200 demonlanders lodging their feedback directly might make them do something about the woeful standards of umps and cryptos.

    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
