 He was tagged by 29.  Who had hardly any of it himself

A player so incredible he’s been in the papers all week looking for a trade, with everyone wondering how the hell he’s going to get a game somewhere else when he can barely get one for north

For those bagging Oliver, watch the reply. No, he is not at his best and it wasn't great by him, but he was held, scragged, pushed away from the contest by players facing away from the play, and huge Xerri was sometimes the 2nd player in on top of him.

Loved the Kynan Brown tackle. Well done son. I loved it when the camera panned to dad - Ooze and Daniel Ward either side of him were going off their heads but poor old Doggy was crapping his dacks. I could relate.

May was a match winner. Larkey is a star and was invisible.  Most important player in the team . Rising 33 and he is irreplaceable. Champion.

He was very good but also seems down on confidence and form. Just going through the motions.

Take the four points, because we won’t be getting many more this season. But jeez… we suck. 

Maybe West Coast?

One more surprise win potentially, but no more than 8 more points.

Ladder predictor has us at 12th.

Meh.

We are an absolute shadow of our former self and its a sad state of affairs watching perform the way that we did.

I'm scared for next week.

Tholstrup playing his second game really showed a bit. Thought Rivers also lifted his work rate and played very well.

Not the disaster so many are wanting to paint it as.

Tholstrup good early before fading

Rivers needs to be into the midfield permanently

Yep he would have been had Gus not been retired and Oliver would have played 8-10 games at Casey too.

On the TV it looked like it, maybe the MCC had the majority of our supporters. On the AFL members side it did look like dominated by North supporters.

At the ground we outnumbered them 3 to 1, if not more.

I can’t handle people saying ‘on the TV’ and then having a crack at our supporters. The MCG is open to all.

Don't know what was worse, England's performance after Kane's goal or us after half time.

There are many parallels to draw between England FC and the Dees. Fantastic list on paper, but no rhythm and seem to play weighed down under a cloud of expectation.

Garbage final quarter. 

Potentially our last win for the year.

Slow, unfit, average skills, no discernable method or team rules, no midfield depth.

What a shambles.

Goodwin probably happy with himself after that win.

Sure, umps had a few howlers but not scoring at all in a final quarter is pathetic.

I am gobsmacked by that. Scoreless in the last quarter. Holding the ball whenever we had it on the wing and letting them flood.

We have zero confidence. Zero synergy. No structure. 

We are poorly coached and playing like huge plodders. We are bottom 4 the way we are playing.

We’re playing a host of under 22’s, have Oliver hugely out of form and Petracca out. I think we’ll finish bottom 6 but your post is over the top. Currently we aren’t that good but there’s talent on the field.

We are not the team we were. Clearly. 

A third of our team are kids. We doesn’t deserve to be favourites against any expect the bottom few. 

Lets develop the kids, try to lay down a decent game plan and plan for the future

28,000 people. Outnumbered by the 18th team and a minnow of the competition. 

Our supporters drop their bundle very, very quickly.

And yes, we played some very ordinary football, but are you a supporter or not?

Free kicks were 24 to 27. Had nothing to do with how we capitulated in that last quarter. You can blame the coach and team trying to protect the lead. Pathetic 

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

    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

    The Demonland Podcast will not be LIVE again this week.

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.

    POSTGAME: Rd 18 vs Essendon

    For 3 quarters the Demons ground out a lead against the Bombers in tough wet conditions at the MCG before putting foot down early in the last quarter eventually winning by 17 points and putting them firmly back in the hunt for September action.

    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.
