Gawns post match comments 1000% confirms Oliver won’t be dropped. 
Selfless game apparently lol.

Fascinated to see the impact of having lever back.. not a coincidence that our form dropped away when he left the team. Critical for structure and leadership

Underrated observation. 
Lever makes us much better. His leadership has been sorely missed. He’s a totally different leader to Gawn and Viney.

Can wait to see the mighty f#cking dees rail the Lions on their home deck. 

In: Lever

Out: Tomlinson

I'm a two hour drive from Brisbane and my heart says go but my logic says no.

I purchased the tickets and the flights after the Geelong win. Things were looking fine back then. Think I’ll put the 8yo on the iPad w/ headphones at 1/4 time 🤷‍♂️😀👌

Max must have missed Oliver trying to give away a 50 with 5 minutes to go.

In all seriousness, they're just trying to keep him well and nurse him through. Unclear whether that is okay or not.

Make a holiday of it and head down to the beach and safe yourself the mental anguish.

Even if we play our best performance of the year, we are miles off the current Lions form.

Look at our list v theirs. We simply have way too many inexperienced players and a forwardline that is simply no match for their backline.

So you would prefer that our captain, whilst still on the field, criticises his teammate, who we all know is trying hard to clean his life up and come back from a poor pre-season, because he couldn’t shake a tag?

Yet every chance you get you complain about our club’s culture being broken?

[censored] me.

Lever would be a welcome inclusion. 
What is going on with #31?   Preseason some were talking him up as a Coleman prospect.
A good performance tomorrow by any Casey medium / tall forward would be welcome.

The logic may be there but the same post would have been made about Hawthorn a month ago, the week prior to them beating Brisbane.

Going along with kids and Grand Kids but fearing the worst. We just are not playing well and our kids, whilst going Ok are just not improving enough. Plus, our middle players are also not doing enough and the less I say about Mr Fritta the best.

Could be an ugly showing at the Gabba.

As I mentioned in the non MFC thread today, how is it that Brisbane keep drafting and successfully blooding goal kicking forwards, and now have 2 more in Lohmann and Morris that are now established in their best 22.

    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.

    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.
