Goody, you're the one who's blamed.

Selwyn, do my work

Do my dirty work, scapegoat

Stafford, do my deeds

For you're the one who's shamed

I was just at the ground. When the siren went I just got up and walked out.

The 50 metres to Windsor was right in front of me: to the letter of the law that’s a 50. THE EXACT SAME THING HAPPENED TO TMAC 2 MINUTES LATER - AND NO 50. 

The players were going berserk. The standard of umpiring can’t even be consistent for 3 minutes.

The AFL is losing me. The umpiring is so inconsistent. Everyone waffles on about ‘the game is so hard to umpire’. It’s not an accident. It’s happening too often, and making them too much money.

I did the exact same thing. The moment the siren went I was gone.

North are finally showing what so many first round draft pick will do to improve your team. We have too many passengers who don't get enough ball. Sorry to the Fritch apologists he is soft, is waiting for the cheap out the back and is no longer able to compete 1 on 1 he hasn't given a peep up forward for a month. Ditto Chandler he doesn't do enough for the role he plays. I c cannot for the life of me work out why Chandler or ANB are station at CHF for centre bounces..

The umpiring was putrid. % frees in a row to N.M resulting in 3 goals and 2 50 metre penalties one of which was wrong. The 4 umpire system as drained the talent pool. Early goals to North gave them some confidence and momentum. Lever controls the backline and organises everything and comes over the top and makes great spoils,

The forward setup is a mess and with no Trac we are going to have to come up with a better plan moving forward.

Me too, then I remembered I left a 10yr old in the front row.

And I realised why it’s good to win, he couldn’t stop smiling after the game.

The good things. 

1. Rivers in the middle playing great.

2. Tholstrup showing he has what it takes.

3. Judd McVee in the last quarter was silky smooth. Fantastic. 

4. Young kids getting game time.

The bad things.

1. The brain dead supporters in here bagging the [censored] out of the players. Seriously, you guys are [censored] thick. (Not all of you, just the loud dumb ones) Petracca gets injured. Everyone with half a brain knows that Oliver is getting the hard tag for the rest of the year. Drop Clarry? Drop him? Seriously? Who are you bringing in? Laurie? We are already playing just about everyone we drafted last year. Do you even engage your brains before posting?

We aren't a premiership team anymore. Adjust your expectations. It's a year of change. The old game plan doesn't stack up.

Then why play Clarry?

Run him as sub and start brown on the field.

Make Clarry earn a full game.

I've seen plenty of games where I thought the umpires were trying to get a side over the line , but I don't think I've ever seen anything as blatant as tonight

We were diabolical but the umpires had them in a multi for sure.

That Petty "mark" on the outer wing with a couple of minutes to go, how that wasnt paid is beyond comprehension.

It's so pathetic that posters despise the arrogance of Chris Scott at PBP. Yet, few on here are prepared to acknowledge how good Norf played today, and indeed over the last three weeks. 

i tipped them to win based on their form coming into the game

they've got some super talent

other than the first quarter and a patch of the third, they were on top

Any reason why there was more Kangaroo's supporters tonight? It's our home game right?

If we serve up the same [censored] we served tonight why TF would anyone go. 

Totally [censored] performance. Heads need to roll

Be gentle, Brisbane.

I don't even reckon they'll use lube on us.

How did Goody go in the presser? Plenty of learnings i gather from todays performance.

If Clarry doesn't play then Viney gets the tag and doesn't play well and then we don't win. The tagging player doesn't just disappear because Oliver is the sub. 

I'm as frustrated as anyone about Olivers  form this year, but he is still streets ahead of anyone at Casey.

Engage the brain before posting.

I was there but there was little to cheer for.  I'm glad we played so many young players, but someone deserves a go ahead of Petty next week. 

Many of us were dying inside watching our midfield unnecessarily hack kick the ball up high and lose it to a 2v1 or straight to an opposition mark.  Then not chasing back and letting a bad side score without being tackled.  

It felt like a car crash where everything goes in slow motion and we would inevitably let the umpires and the bottom placed side win.  That last quarter was excruciating to watch and I'm not sure I've ever enjoyed a win less than this?  

It a truly a Bad Win

Just a bit out of form and 6 goals in a Granny for the Mighty Dees, he can stay in Cranbourne for mine.

Was tagged heavily by Philips. Max said Clarry went to LDU or another mid to make it two on one and release Jack Viney

Clarry spent his time wrestling with Philips

 

Shows no interest in attacking the ball. Gave away 4/5 free kicks?

A shell of his former self. Would have been better putting him at full fwd and dragging fritch

After that last quarter fade out I too had the feeling of a loss and not a narrow win. What is happening with Fritz?

we have posters bagging our players

posters telling fellow supporters to [censored] off if you didn’t attend the game without an acceptable excuse

of course we have supporters bagging our coaching

none of this happens when we are winning. a strange phenomenon 

think i might take a breather from this ‘supporter’ site

    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.
