    Casey Demons v Footscray VFL - Round 15

    Fair enough then ...

    Losing Jack Viney

    Actually, on the basis of what's been reported, we have zero evidence that running out a foot injury is risky - because we're ignoring all the occasions when running it out works. We're only hearing about when it (perhaps) doesn't. As Tom Mac said re his own foot/toe issues, as a footballer, you're constantly having problems with feet and toes: you get stood on, you get knocks, you're doing a lot of running, and it's not called *foot* ball for nothing. Once again, we're only hearing about when these develop into something more serious, while ignoring the majority of times when they don't. Every player on our list would be nursing/carrying some kind of niggle, including foot/toes.

    Casey Demons v Footscray VFL - Round 15

    Based (only) on the stats, perhaps his confidence has taken a bit of a hit ... Learning curve.

    Changes vs Geelong

    Weideman for Hannan. Apart from anything else, lets us leave Tom McD up forward the whole match as Weideman would cover for Gawn. Tyson for Viney seems obvious, perhaps they wanted more pace against the Dogs, but do we need more grunt against Geelong?

    Casey Demons v Footscray VFL - Round 15

    Pinch hitting in the ruck for starters. Would enable us to leave Tom Mac forward the whole game, and ensure that even when either Tom or Hogan are resting, we still have 2 talls up forward.

    You do when you take him out ... which is one of the reasons so many were wanting him back in when Petty/J Smith went out. Though what Vince adds isn't really the question. It's what the bloke he played on adds, and from what I can see, it's generally not much. Bernie still knows how to shut someone down.

    Some of the best footy we've played for quite a while, hope we can take it forward, will need all we can next week down at Geelong. Bummer that we lost the Saints game. Would be sitting second now.

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    It's really simple. We have too many players who aren't good enough. (Also a few who aren't quick enough.)

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    You mean like Lewis was pilloried for doing last week?

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    Seriously? Frost has cost us 2 goals.

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    Sam Frost. Runs back to the goal and leaves Schache free: goal. Kicks to Gawn but in a 1 on 3. Johannisen clears, goal. If we lose this (possible), it'll be because of events like the above - and not only Frost. Just too many turnovers and sloppy disposals.

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    Regardless of whether JKH is decent or not, we have one more player that's not used to playing with the rest of the team. Him flying against Salem in the back line was a classic example. It's not just Viney out that's the problem, but that these outs upset balance and stability. Could see us losing this, but there are just too many players out there who are fringe players. This is NOT a well-oiled machine.

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    If ever that happens, try coming in through Channel (in the middle up the top), rather than Matches.

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    Not working out too well for Hawthorn at the moment.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 17

    Happy to have Vince back, not sure who he's replacing down back that's currently available. Wagner? Also pleased to see them giving JKH a go. As above, Last Chance Hotel, but at least no-one will die not knowing.
