GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne



Recommended Posts

It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

Following (a tad less keenly than previous years) from Schinoussa in the Greek Cyclades.

In truth, just braggin'.

WE’VE GOT THIS!!!

Hopefully we get a decent crowd tonight and the boys know we’re there. It means a lot to them when they can hear us, and who knows… it may just be the difference between winning and losing 🤷‍♀️ 

Was gonna say Dees by a Pup (41pts) but even I’m not that delusional so I’ll go Dees by a Knuckles - 4pts, since he last wore #41 ❤️💙

Maybe it's time Brimbank Council adopt the same rules that Greece has. Passport and bag check at all entry points. Problem solved.

BTW been to Greece a dozen times. Never scared. Never been to St Albans. Thanks for the heads up.

Norths youngsters will be no pushovers. 

we've been playing like a bunch of strangers recently. hoping to see some rhythm and connection in our game.

not overly confident but if we play like we can and should we'll win.

Dees by 20 points

Awesome - I’ll take a win and some heart palpitations along the way.

That would be the third time we’ve beaten North by 4 points this century for the footy nerds playing at home.

I can’t help but feel North’s midfield torch ours. They are better on paper, better on form and have a lot of confidence after significant improvement of late. How we cope over the rest of the ground will be the key

I think North get this done in a tight one and they cement their upwards trajectory from here.

All I can hope for is JVR having a big game

We need to be brutal at the contest today. Enough is enough. 

Agreed.

Carltons pressure was at a season high 200 last night.

Our’s was a season low of 162 last week vs the Pies, despite getting humiliated the week before vs Freo.

Spot the team that wants success more this year. We either can’t or won’t apply the minimum standard of pressure of late.

North will make some hideous mistakes tonight which we need to punish on the turnover. However if their pressure far exceeds ours, they’ll beat us tonight. We can’t handle pressure.

I’m thinking you are a ‘glass half full’ kinda guy bub. You certainly have resurfaced and come out strong in recent times.

I'll give you an insight as to how i think.

Firstly... the glass half full, half empty correlation I all but dismiss as I don't agree to the merit of those relative outlooks.

Im actually more inclined to favour my Engineering and suggest that that Glass is not fit for purpose as is obviously the wrong size...and it always seems to be  ;)

Speaking of not fit for purpose.... we have the MFC .   I don't like that it is this way. 

We're currently playing like a committee designed horse ;)

Will be very interested to to how we go about the game today. Personally the bookies have it arsecabout ... imho.

But... Go Dees

Just try and get going.

So you are always 😢 spilling your milk? 
 

I agree, it’s not a good fit, get a new glass 😳😂😜🤓
 

I woke up confident for a win tonight, but I am losing my confidence coming on here and reading other posts. The nerves are starting to kick in already

Game day baby. Pumped (not really)

No Trac, no problem. Back on the winners list today and a return to form for Petts (will bounce back with at least 4 goals).

Go Dees. See you tonight at the G

Treat it that way and we win. If we don’t, we won’t!

You forgot to note 'back in the 8' with a win!  Then its a finals spot to lose.

    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.
