Just like to correct you on the game Jack. I was watching it on TV and there was an almighty roar from the crowd when people listening on their trannies spread the word that Hawthorn had beaten Geelong. We were in front at that stage and it was then just a matter of staying there which we did. Ironically, it was the Hawks who got us into the finals but sadly, it was them who kicked us out in the prelim. Regards mate.

The energy and emotion that carried over and drove the side to thrash North ...... is something I have never experienced before or since.

The creme de la creme was the standing ovation Robert Flower received when Northey took him off for a rest with 5 minutes to go in the final quater of the elim final against North. Sheedy and Hird - you ain't seen nothing.

As you would know RR, the mighty Russell Richards came on in his place, immediately going for run with the ball through the centre.

Not quite right.

The roar you heard was when the hawks hit the lead with 5 minutes to go.

Our game finished first and the crowd waited in dead silence to hear the final siren at Kardinia Park.

Pandemonium followed.

People forget often that the game always looked like being lost up to half time, until the great Robert Flower single-handedly put us back into the game with 2 3rd quarter goals on the Bulldogs members flank.

I am actually with Bobby on this one. I recall the Hawks- Geelong game finishing first. Hawks hit the front just before the siren. When it went at KP, the crowd at Western Oval went berserk players stopped and thought it was their game over. A special day.

You were quite right though about Flower. Played with a broken finger and brought us back into the game.

Russell Richards at his Brownlow missing peak!

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
