POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast



Recommended Posts

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.

The Eagles played out of their skins - no doubt about that. That is common when a lesser ranked/younger/inexperienced team plays a contender.

Sadly , we could not lift  to match that effort.

We are kidding ourselves.  We are not contenders.

Worst performance in the last 4 years. We were monstered by them and I hope we’re absolutely filthy with ourselves. Very keen to see next week’s response.

Here's the good news: we now must play Jefferson. We now must give new recruits a game ahead of Billings - i.e. Tholstrup. It's now patently obvious that our current team being selected is lacking.

A game we lost because our opponent was simply better. I don’t think this new game plan is going to work. We simply don’t have enough elite ball users to create attack off half back. Nor do we have the forwardline. 
Time to reassess what we do for the remainder of the year, because if we are willing to go back in order to go forward in 2025, then we need to invest heavily in better ball users in the trade period.

I don't pile on after a loss often but that was pathetic. This one less at the stopage, play it from our back half game in nonsense.

How often does the ball come from an opposition kick in go straight through the midfield like there's no one there? It's going to cost us a shot at it this year. Really poor game plan

The 2021 cup is in the trophy cabinet and there's no asterisk next to it.

We have been exposed as not a real flag chance.

A shame.

Midfield was flat footed again

Who do we have banging down the door?

It's a worry 

I think most of us had an inkling about this and our team this year.

We couldn't win a final in 22 or 23 and this team is far worse.

Will be years before we contend again.

Over reaction 2021 was no fluke. You always need a bit of luck to win one. We've been up for 3-4 years but I think we are not contending this year and will need changes to be able to contend

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
