god there are some miserable [censored] on the game day thread... would you take a 50 point win? Yeah... but, I'll [censored] whinge about it not being enough, and some players haven't done enough.

nah nah, I just expect a lot from my team and want to see consistent improvement.

Anyway

Youngsters keep doing well.

We don't seem to be toooo predicitable as per the earlier thread this week.

Battened down the hatches in the 4th.. but you can spin that narrative that because we're not in the 8, you need to continue and put the 'foot on the throat' to be deemed to be worthy by some supporters vs being in the 8, and it was a day at the office and responsible.

Good win especially when the youngsters were the better players. Still big question marks over Oliver and Sparrow, as well as our backline.

Bring on the Injectors next week.

the boys did amazingly, especially the kids. Second halves could use some tidying up still but super proud of them.

Standouts in rivers, windsor, kolt and JVR and theyre all 22 or under!

Bring on the Dons, we've got this.

Loved what I saw from the young kids. Kolt, Windsor and Roo fantastic. 

Last quarter without Max was always going to be a battle. Anyone know what’s wrong with him?

They mentioned he tweaked his ankle. Nothing serious, more precautionary.

We were never going to replicate the 1st quarter for the whole game. Happy with the win and form of our younger players especially. Tholstrup looking like he belongs and Windsor's best game for a while if not the year.

Hope Gawny sub was just precautionary. Hard to see any changes for next week unless Petty is ready. Woewodin maybe the only one under consideration after 1 touch as the sub but would be a touch unfair probably.

Has there ever been a backline that cracks the sheets and points at others more than this mob.

Still historically they're very good

I liked the fact we look to move the ball quicker and at times through the corridor. The fwd line seemed less congested and we delivered it a hell of a lot better than we normally do. 
 

TMac should be offered a one year contract for next year.

Iced the ankle, didn’t look to distraught, would think with 6 day turn around precaution. Wouldn’t be surprised to see crutches/moon boot for a few days and light week for him

Ankle was being iced when he came off.

JVR’s post-game interview. What a sweetheart. 

Did you see his interview this week in the MFC social? (YouTube) 

Looks like a very mature and down to earth bloke.

I think we're gonna have a lot of youngsters in the B&F top 10!

Would’ve been nice to claw back a bit more percentage but no complaints - we smashed them. It was a game dominated by youth - Rivers and van Rooyen in particular as best players. Despite the disappointing season this list has a lot of upside, and this season isn’t over yet.

    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.
