  1. Under pressure, only Hanks and Paxman and possibly Lily M & Kate H can reliably execute skill. Pies seemingly have a strong blend of girls who can kick well and with distance. Of our defenders, no one can really hit a target in comparison to Collingwood. This needs to be a focus for 2022 recruitment. Quite a few quiet girls today, Heath, Paxy, Mithen and Parry has been unsighted since her 3 goals against North. Zanker and Bannan need to do something in the second half. Low expectations, there was little to enthuse and Pies are playing so well.
  2. Our decision making is terrible so far. C’mon girls.
  3. Good to see Spargo tackle being rewarded with a free and goal. 87:76 with 8:12 left on the clock.
  4. Are you suggesting Gary is coming up with these rule ideas and advising his brother Steve at AFL house? Buddha was Whiskers temporarily in 1999.
  5. Yes absolutely but I won’t be watching the replay 🙄
  6. Backline is missing Goldie. Need a big final quarter from Paxy. Parry is being well held and Bannan quiet. Next 15 minutes will tell the story. Go Dee girls!
  7. Yes, what a great win by our girls. The match showcasing some of the highest skills in AFLW, a thrilling edge-of-the-seat finish, plenty of goal scoring and best of all the Dees won. The North midfield of Kearney, Garner, Riddell, King et al has drawn many plaudits along their 8-game winning streak but on Saturday night our midfield led by Paxy, the dynamic duo Hanks and Mithen, a welcome return by Maddi G and L Pearce was equal to the challenge. At quarter time Stinear asked for better connection and more predictable forward entries and got what he asked for with 6 goals. Ge
  8. Hardly surprising North came back, they are very good and very fit. If we match their intensity I think we can win. Our backline was a wobbly, Daisy’s kick-outs, Birch’s missed marks. It’s the North pressure. Go Dee girls.
  9. St Kilda Coach, Peta Searle, bemoaned the concessions North has been given. “North are an outstanding side. They’ve got a great list. They started with a great list and they’ve been gifted top-10 players every year to top up,” Searle said. Not surprisingly North are the flag favourites. There looks to be a number of likely teams in the next group including the Dees. The draw will influence where we finish as there are some less competitive teams and we don’t play everyone. There has been obvious improvement with all our girls this year. With Petrevski out with a hammy and Ma
  10. Have we ever scored 7 goals in the first half?
  11. Suns looking good. Their backs are quick, our forwards seem lumbering in comparison. Hanks was great that quarter. Keep Goldie on she creates run. Liking Eliza so far.
  12. The strongest team available has been selected. No Maddi Gay or Meg Downie, they will be a loss but we have added some run with the three newbies McNamara, Bannan and Fitzsimon and it’s great to see Shelley Heath in the side. Love Goldie, the girls love her too and walk taller when she’s out there. Expecting our team to perform really well tomorrow but as we’ve never played the Suns there is the unknown. Expecting Hanks, Zanker and L Pearce to dominate and hopefully our connection and conversion will win the day. Can’t wait until 3:10 tomorrow. Go Dees.
  13. From MelbourneFC website: THREE new faces will be pulling on the red and blue this weekend, as the Demons announced their debutants for Round 1. With the players’ families gathering over the fence at Gosch’s Paddock, Alyssa Bannan, Eliza McNamara and Megan Fitzsimon received their guernsey’s before the Tuesday night training session begun. Megan Fitzsimon has been drafted with pick No.35, joining the Demons from Gippsland. The 18-year-old is an explosive footballer who can play through the middle and up forward, and she knows how to kick a goal. Fitzsimon has had a major
  14. Meggs heard that Bannan and McNamara are likely round 1 inclusions and is hoping Paxy and Downie recover from their injuries against the Cats.

  15. Season 2021 kicks off against Adelaide at Casey Fields in a fortnight, so not long to wait now. I hear the Irish girls are still in Brisbane quarantining, so hopefully they get down here soon and get in some AFL practice. Would love to see Goldy line up against the Crows, she’s so fierce and full of run as evidenced in the Dublin v Cork Final and in 2020 AFLW. Apparently the girls had an intraclub hitout last week and there is a practice match this weekend at Geelong. Of the newbies I understand Bannan and McNamara are shaping as likely Round 1 inclusions. An offseason im
  16. Meggs loves to execute the drop kick and show his kids. He recalls Paul Goss, Norm Goss’ brother, kicking a drop kick goal from a free or mark about 15m out from goal at the G. It was really odd at the time as no one did drop kicks in 1976. Paul only kicked 2 goals in 4 games for the Dees according to Wikipedia and I didn’t see the other goal.
  17. Whoever drafted the advertisement and or approved the final copy should be admonished. The opportunity is a really good one. As an undergraduate I would have applied in my day.
  18. Our own Lachie Hunter thread has understandably gone cold. Heard he might be seriously considering the warmer climate with a 2020 Preliminary finalist. He is a gun player, no doubt, and will be only 26 yo when the 2021 season starts.
  19. I hear Mitch McGovern might be part of the Saad deal...not quite Curnow, Walsh or Mackay but he's probably ok for them.
  20. Supporting, not disrespecting, our loyal servants who have bled red n blue for their entire career is very important. 6 more games for 300 and or 13 more for the all time games played record as a Demon. Can Jonesy do it? Yes possibly, but to do this he must earn his spot each week, train hard and stay uninjured. His durable track record and professional approach will tick 2 boxes. It’s the first box which will likely prove the decider in how many matches he plays next year. Best of luck for 2021 Jonesy and go Dees!
  21. Pleased about this, a real Demon warrior!
  22. Bellyache versus C Scott career win:loss ratio - both 69%!
  23. So is DrE = GNF and most probably FOS? OMG IAGTB...go Storm
