Silver lining is that maybe this precipitates Goodwin's farewell?

Not sure the board has the guts but one can dream.

We'd have to miss finals for it to be considered I'd say.

All the talk about Petty. Fritz has contributed zero and roo 2 hit outs. Getty nothing from them and have for the last month.

They're killing us around the stoppage and killing us around the ground. If they tighten up their possessions and keep running they will score quickly. I just can't see us winning this. We are so, so bad.

Is this a north home game? Melbourne supporters totally checked out

Not where I’m sitting. Out number 3-1. It’s just that quarter we didn’t have much to cheer about.

If Kozzy is going to spend time in the middle, he can't continue to avoid contested situations. He goes in one handed and is timid in contested situations. He also lowers his body as he goes into the contest to try and get a head high free, and when the opposition doesn't get sucked into giving away the free, he ends up on the floor with the ball and then rushes his disposal.

Needs to cut it out of his game if he is going to continue to get minutes in the midfield.

There was a bit of a melee. Shame we didn't put in this much fight against Collingwood.  

What started that.

That's very likely with no Petracca, I can almost put some money on us missing the 8.

Poor quarter, bodes badly for the rest of the game. Forward line have packed it in after a good first quarter

I hope North don't find their shooting boots or we could be in trouble

We're already in trouble

I am not normally one to try ridiculous player shifting mid game but I'd honestly put Oliver deep in the pocket and put Kolt next to him. Shift Petty back and McDonald forward. Leave JVR in the ruck and have Gawn play defensively exclusively. Pickett on the wing and Windsor playing a defensive wing. Give Langdon more space to run. Then sub Chandler and bring on Brown to play an attacking flank role.

It’s interesting that we are more than 10% down on our season average disposal efficiency.

Clean that up and we’ll be much more likely to score.

Yep we’ve been butchering it.

North’s contest work was very good that qtr. If they keep it up we’ll be done.

Pretty poor second quarter. Good to see Rivers getting a run through the middle though. Oliver still looks  miles off being the player he was and I am not sure it’s his fitness that’s holding him back.

    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

    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.
