POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood



Recommended Posts

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.

That was just more rubbish.

Zero confidence. Zero intensity. Zero clue.

Deplorable skills. We are playing like a bunch of drunks. I can’t believe how far our form has plummeted in the space of 6 weeks or so. There is something rotten in the club. There’s no demon spirit anymore.

Goody survived one near death experience. He won’t survive another. He needs to sort this out and fast otherwise he’ll be in the jobs market come seasons end.

If the issue with the club over the last couple of seasons has been inaccuracy and scoring efficiency today was the day where it became completely unavoidable that both the skills coach and forward line coach have to go.

I expect significant off field changes before next year. We continue to under deliver forward of the ball.

One positive at least is that those that think JvR won’t make it can stfu now.

In less than a month we get smashed by the former worst team in the comp, get smashed by the most fickle side in the comp, get smashed by the most undermanned side in the comp and next game against another former worst team in the comp. I think we will win that one.

Drafting high-contest vs high-skill players got us a premiership, but is coming back to hurt us.

Inaccurate has nothing to do with it. 

Our shots are from the pockets. Collingwood kicks theirs from direcrly in front. We have a shot directly in front from 50 and hit a target on the pocket. Daicos slots his from 55 out directly in front.

This is 100%, undoubtedly, unequivocally structural. This is a coaching decision. It's how we played in 2021. It's how we're playing now.

We have a 60 goal forward in Fritsch who consistently can't get into games. 

We consistently kick to spare defenders.

We are poorly coached.

From the ground, there was plenty of want and intensity, particularly early. All the indicators said we should have been much closer at half time - on top in clearance and contested possession. The simple fact is they converted all of their chances (and most of their half chances) and we didn’t.

Pack your bags Simon, you're done..

While you're at it take Richo, Pert, Roffey, Chaplin, Williams, Stafford  and Tim Lamb with you on the way out.

I'm trying to think whether getting beaten by a Collingwood team with 11 of its first choice players out is worse than being beaten by an Essendon VFL side like we were a few years back.

This club has no heart.

The can take their pay checks and far8off for all I care

I feel sick. I feel embarrassed that we turned up like that after Freo. And I feel like I'm losing my mind seeing so many people be optimsitic and suggest goal kicking was the difference today.

Goody will make some huge, huge changes next week. Billings to start. Laurie sub.

Bizarre that after last week's smashing we go with the same Petty and Turner forward set up.

    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

    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
