    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    He’s showing some encouraging signs with the move down back and it’s great to see/hear that Nev has taken him under his wing. Would have to be the best possible role model for any young small defender.

    Round 14 Non MFC Games

    Blame shouldn’t fall entirely on Wallis. Inexplicably, the doggies played the last two minutes like they were the ones who were 4 points down. They ran, played on, scrambled, handballed and rushed the ball repetedly inside 50. No leadership or common sense to slow things down and maintain possession.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    He's a goal kicker and has consistently hit the scoreboard in the four seasons he's played with us. In regards to 'big games': 4 goals vs Geelong when we beat them at the Cattery in 2015. 4 goals vs Richmond ANZAC eve in 2016. 2 goals vs Adelaide in the AdOval win in 2017. Even in the round 23 match against Collingwood last year he kicked 2.2 from 18 disposals. He's kicked goals in every Queen's Birthday match, every ANZAC eve game, every opening round match and even this year his 4 goals against Brisbane were match winning. I understand people's issues with him as a player, but the fact of the matter is, he kicks more goals than any small forward we've had since Farmer.

    Run home to Finals - 2018

    Form lines never work in football, but let’s bear in mind that we played a very close, finals-like match against a team that beat Richmond at home a couple of weeks back. We’re playing some good footy, just need to find consistency against in-form teams. FWIW- I did a ladder predictor Thursday afternoon and by Thursday night it was already wrong after Essendon beat WCE. Impossible to see how the 8 will pan out at this stage.

    Demonland Podcast Tonight 20/6 Featuring Brad Green

    One day I'd love to hear what and how it all went down. I've seen some thumpings handed out to some truly terrible teams over the years, but still none of them came even close to a margin of 186 points. It's truly incredible and something of a statistical anomaly in our game.

    Delisting, Trade and FA discussion 2018

    I think he’s a gun and Freo wouldn’t part with him easily. If he’s wanting to come home though, I’d be very happy to see us pursue him.

    Bernie keen to lure Sloane to the Dees

    The problem with free agency is older players are accepting less money to move to a ‘successful’ well resources club.

    Changes v Port

    I worry about a 197cm 83kg KPD in the lineup. He’s got talent, but he’d be required to man up on players much bigger and stronger. Dixon 200/108 Westoff 200/93 Marshall 198/90 Ryder (resting) 197/96

    Deespicable's 2018 Player Rankings

    Great work- well done! Whilst I don’t agree with a few of the rankings, the analysis and consideration makes for very good reading!

    Changes v Port

    IN: Tyson, Frost, Garlett OUT: Vince, Spargo, Pedersen Have loved Spargo’s work, but the bigger bodied Collingwood brushed him aside. Want to see Frost as the second tall against a tall Port Adelaide forward line and Smith play his more suited third tall role. Tyson is a very good player and has found some form. Must play against a strong Port Midfield.

    Go and get Gaff!

    I can’t imagine a scenario in which he wouldn't be a band one... He’s young (turned 26 yesterday) he’s playing well (at least in AA squad at this stage) he’ll get a long contract, and he’ll be on good money. They’ll get band one, unfortunately for them, they look like finishing near the top of the ladder so they would only get a pick somewhere in the 15-18 range.

    4 new pages to this thread today... anyone would have thought there was some Gaff news...

    Ladder predictor

    Fox Footy (FWIW) are a lot more optimistic about our run home and have us down to finish 4th. They rate our draw as the 13th most difficult. https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/latest-afl-run-home-final-ladder-and-finals-series-projections-round-13-2018/news-story/86b0a6a1bf0d53ed16b21352b35f7f4f

    Delisting, Trade and FA discussion 2018

    I did forget about him! At 204cm and a lot of power in the genes from his mum and dad, he'll hopefully come along in 4-5 years.

    Delisting, Trade and FA discussion 2018

    The ruck situation is a worry, with both of our developing or 'project' ruckmen being on the 'could go either way' list. Hopefully there's some unsighted potential there and we can keep at least one of them on and look to trade in a mature ruck to help out. It's looking very thin below Gawn and we need King or Filipovic to show something in the second half of the season.

    Delisting, Trade and FA discussion 2018

    There was 'crazy' talk a month or son ago about Murphy possibly being offered big money that could earn the Blues and band 1 or 2 compensation pick. That would be insanity for any club to pay overs for Murphy. With that said, Murphy could opt for two years at a successful or 'verge of success' club on a small contract - essentially trading the cash for success. If he was willing to come to us on such a contract, then I'd be happy to have him. (But I very much doubt he'd leave)

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    When it was announced by the AFL that PJ was coming into the club, I was disgusted that a former Essendon boss was putting his grubby paws on my beloved club... I’ve never been more wrong. I'm prepared to give former Fitzroy fullback Gary Pert a go.

    Petracca in a rut?

    The media at the time reported it was for Petracca.

    Petracca in a rut?

    It was Brayshaw. (tennis)

    Petracca in a rut?

    FWIW, I have been told they were trading up to get Brayshaw.

    Dean Kent on the move... ?

    Kent lost me as a player last year on the back of a string of lazy performances. For all his promise and potential weaponry, he just doesn't get enough of the ball or effect enough contests. For a player of his speed, power and supposed physicality, he averages just 2 tackles and game and has kicked over 3 goals just once in his career (4 goals, round 3 2016). He's recorded over 20 disposals in a match six times in his career, 5 of those times were in 2016; did very little before and very little since.

    Seems to be going along nicely at Casey and may be worth having a look at him at senior level soon. There may be some questions asked about Spargo, Vince and Hannan at the next match committee meeting, maybe a call up soon rather than later?? Ive only seen Balic play once, and it was against us last year at the G. He didn’t seem troubled by the step up then, in fact he played very, very well.

    MFC Cactus for the rest of 2018

    We’ve played 4 top 8 sides. 2 of them beat us convincingly. We lost one by less than a goal. We convincingly beat the 4th.
