Does anyone else want a 100 point loss so something can change? 

Doesn’t matter how big the margin is, the change won’t come

UOf course amiss doesn't miss against us. This is going to be a percentage killer, a top 4 killer & maybe a top8 killer

At this point I am seriously considering missing top 8 may be the best for this team.

New ideas are needed to keep pushing the side forward.  Yze bought in new ideas that had impact and success.  His replacement doesn't seem to had the same impact.  We need to go and find a high quality senior assistant to chalkenge replace Goodwin and push the team.

Getting smashed and people are blaming the umpires? Come on. 
First to the ball = first to the free. 

No one is blaming the umpires for us getting done. That's on you.

But are we not allowed to comment on the standard of umpiring?

It's the game day thread, FCS

Not thinking I'll need to WANT it.....

Not something I didn’t consider.. but prob don’t need 100pt to ruin confidence entirely but hey — modern footy is week-by-week proposition that’s for dang sure

Whilst not blaming this pathetic performance on the Umpires, aren’t people allowed to comment on poor decisions ?

While simultaneously kicking one goal a quarter.

Glad I turned it off

Any chance we could turn up to a game with the mindset of putting immense pressure on the opponent?

Frees 4 - 12 not one HTB

I wouldn’t be looking to the free kick count as a reason for the scoreline… we are playing rubbish footy, the likes of which I haven’t seen since the Mark Neeld days.

Can we still sack him despite having extended his contract last year?

Are our players just content to be on an AFL list? 

Said it before and will say it again, we arent that good.

We arent a big club.

And this sort of stuff affects membership too.

What a shame.

Freo player drops ball instead of returning to Windsor who won the free. No fifty called. More [censored] umpiring

The funny thing is, it’s change we’re trying — we could go back to 22-23 Brand in no time but WHY? Do what you’ve always done and you’ll get same result.. 

 

how can no one else see this IS trying to change????? Goodness me.. I’d rather we don’t change and just kicked straighter (ly) but I also see we can’t keep getting to finals, dominating i50 and LOSING!!! We lost 4/4 finals — We have to try and transition our game and we will, it’s a bump in the road, just hope for no injuries & put it behind us!

Like what?

This team is done and dusted.

Mentally lazy.

It reeks of .." but we have won a flag."

Us supporters deserve better than this.

Shame on these players.

Shame on the coaches.

I feel sorry for those fans that spent their hard earned going to NT for this game.

And why exactly are we playing in Nt to start with?

Like we haven't travelled enough this year.

We are still on time to try and do a mini rebuild. Starting with the coaching staff.

I think some peeps have been a bit spoiled.. I wish I could make it so that when you jump-off this quickly you can’t enjoy the high-rides but I know where you’re coming from and would’ve once felt similar but this is a perfect day for a team that’s choc-full of confidence and we’re barely there! Maybe this is a butt-smashing we need?
 

 No reason it can’t be.. I choose to keep faith, everything’s going right for them and it’s evident they’re chasing in. I can’t smash a team that’s given me so much resounding reasons to trust them.. I mean look at that Serong Goal for goodness sake off back if DARCY lucky goal and Frederick boundary goal, that’s just bananas & good on em!

We’ll bounce back next week.. you don’t lose ability overnight for goodness sake! 
 

Harden up ppl, it’s a crappy day — move fwd.  

 

I suppose for some it's the same it's as being a Trump supporter stuck in a bubble.

the fact our second best defender is probably also our best forward genuinely makes me laugh.

    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.
