We have definitely lost that hunger and mongrel we had in 21.

This uninterested mob will struggle to even make finals this year.

Surely coaches will be under the pump if the season continues like this?

Hard to comprehend we extended Goodwin before the finals last year.

We have to arrest something in the second half. Diabolical atm but a percentage smashing makes it two losses. Taking a 5 goal defeat and come out fired up next week.  I think I'm clutching at straws.

Coaches can only work with what they have. Look at Clarkson at North.

It's the players and the list.

Who do you think is responsible for generating and developing that list?

I can only imagine what’s being said — but to me it’s looking as simple as perceived pressure and general poor disposal and decisions that are killing us. I50 tackles were up 8-3, but we just have lost all ability to make the right decision — game-plan adaptation or implementation issues, or just poor run of disposals/decisions? Makes d50 looks really poor but I’m not convinced it is, whilst it’s not great it’s more about where we are turning it over and our inability to get chains together. Intercepting non-existent at present, but Freo look like a COMPLETELY diff side, very strange I’m not throwing baby out with bath water despite being obviously shattered at what I’m seeing..

Becomes all about confidence for next week now I guess — let’s hope for some spirit at least.

I think I might petition to have no Binman on the pod this week because I just can’t put up with 2 hours of this isn’t our midfield’s fault.

It's like they think he's some sort of tactical genius 😂  

Just dribbles on rubbish. Embarrassed himself with the loading stuff the last two years now he's finding his niche as the midfield isn't the problem excuse.

U think it’s the mids? Today has been contest in general not just the mids imho I mean seeing O‘meara be made to look like Ablett hurts but I’m not sure it’s all mids we’ve just been off our game completely trying to be some sort of cutting kick team which we’re not.. it’s certainly just very strange we’re at sea without a boat let alone a paddle!!!

Coaches have a say on the list and recruiting surely, so we just keep this insipid output until we can no longer justify changes in the FD or coaching staff?

So I did not see 186,  luckily enough. But I am watching this absolute garbage. 
to me some are playing with no concern about the result.  We are behind our opposition all the time.    3 or 4 players would not get game time at north with this type of effort and skill. 
so that begs the question what is wrong within the club.

imagine 2 first rounders for Mr Petty. We would have stolen them.

Maybe Oliver's lack of pre season is starting to catch up with him.

He's had a shocker.

Tom sparrow front row. Teachers pet

Maybe he was just last in the room and everyone else had filled the chairs from the back to be as far from the spray as possible?

I know I put this in when we're going badly, but we're going to waste this list, aren't we?

I feel like I'll never see a mcg gf. 

At least you got to see a premiership. How about all those that passed before 2021 who were long suffering.

If the entire team doesn’t have Covid or explosive diarrhea, then I have no idea what is the possible excuse for this embarrassing performance

    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

I will post the show here once I receive Binman's stats files. You can also find it wherever you get your podcasts from. We will return in our regular format once I return after the Dockers match.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    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.
