    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    Who didn't want it when it counted? Did someone go to give Viney a handpass and he shook his head at them? Was Nathan Jones sticking himself in a back pocket to get as far away from the ball as possible? Strange comment.

    Changes v St Kilda

    He did jag one goal in the third term, but I agree with the sentiment of your post regardless.

    Changes v St Kilda

    I heard what Goodwin said. He's right, our clearance/stoppage work was terrific. He made no mention of roles, let alone Tyson's, so we don't actually know if that's the role he had. Did he have a run with role? Was he there to give a chop out to other players? Did he rest across half forward? Play on a wing? We don't know the answers, and neither do you. You said he played his role, without knowing if he did or not, and when asked by Vogon you instead turned it in to what it is now. You didn't answer the question, as you often don't, and instead made it very clear that you're just going by what Goodwin said and twisting it as best you can to suit your thoughts, which is what you usually do.

    If you don't know what his role was then why did you say he played it...? You're getting worse and worse.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    Fair points, Steve. I guess there is a small part of me that hopes Garlett smashes the door down for selection, but I get the feeling he isn't doing that at all (although that's an assumption based on the reports from the games each week).

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    Spargo's stats (19 touches, 9 tackles) are what you would hope to see from Garlett, especially against average opposition like Coburg. It's why Goody has continued to stick with Spargo each week and the reason Jeffy is left at Casey.

    Can We Save Our Season?

    Good to hear that the sentiment in this thread is that our season is far from gone. Thank goodness for some common sense. Imagine if the players returned to Melbourne with the belief the season was already done and dusted? It's madness. It's not as if Port were some bottom 4 side who were struggling. They've now won 5 of their last 6 (with the one loss being by 3 points to the Hawks in Tassie) and are in very good form. We played our brand of footy and dictated terms for most of the night. Poor use inside 50 aside, we had them cooked. If we bring that intensity each week for the second half of the year then we'll play finals. No doubt in mind. I'm not convinced as to what we can do come finals time yet, but we can most certainly still play in them. Our season does not need to be 'saved' at all. It's alive and kicking.

    Some of you guys take things too literally. The tweet isn't necessarily comparing us exactly to the Tigers. It simply suggests that there is plenty of the season left and there have been other teams, in similar positions, who in the past have overcome it. Some make finals, some win a few of those finals and, in the Tigers case, they won a flag. Doesn't mean we'll do the same. It means that we can still make some noise if we wish to and have a terrific back end to the season.

    Round 14 Non MFC Games

    Brown gets a light shove in the back and falls forward like he's been smashed by Yokozuna. Disgrace.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    To be fair, there have also been numerous games where he has kicked a couple in junk time or just not hit the scoreboard in some of those big games as well. The above are good examples, but they are three from the last 4 years (I'm sure you and I could go back through and find them on both sides, though, so it's a moot point really). I guess my post came from the fact that he gives no reason for inclusion in our side. If he had jagged 4 or 5 today, or supporters said he laid numerous tackles and put on a heap of pressure, then I'd be more inclined to include him. It doesn't sound like he is doing anything of the sort, and therefore doesn't deserve a run in the side. He may still get picked, and I'd hope more than anything he would play well, but everyone pleading for his return are pretty short sighted after the year he has had to date.

    Round 14 Non MFC Games

    Ben Brown, with his stupid hair, ridiculous run up and annoying face, is probably the player I hate most in the AFL at the minute. Simply can't stand the bloke. It's slightly irrational but I can't help it.

    Changes v St Kilda

    1-2 changes, tops. Weideman is in the frame after kicking 7, which Stretch possibly deserves a run after a good month at Casey. We may add another tall defender too, but outside of that, we won't make any other changes.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    Maybe, maybe not. Lever not playing was not the issue. What we did forward of the ball was. If you can't see that yourself then I can't help you.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    Didn't see any of the game, but it's terrific to see Weideman kick 7. Poor opposition or not, he's still done well to jag that many and puts himself in the frame for an immediate recall. The rest don't exactly get me excited and, if we don't have any injuries, I don't we'll make more than 1 or 2 changes for the St. Kilda game this week.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 14

    Why are so many people frothing at the mouth for Garlett? He has shown, time and time again, that he goes missing in big games and when the heat is on. How many big games over the last few years has he not shown up for? His form has been average at best at Casey, and in a hotly contested, hard tackling game like last night, he would have had more chance of not giving us anything than being some sort of match winner. The issue isn't what we're doing when the ball hits the deck, it's the way we create space for each other and the delivery inside 50. Garlett wouldn't have change much of that, and unless he is ripping it up at Casey, I'd continue to look elsewhere.
