    Go and get Gaff!

    As much as we gave to Lever but over 5. Media have said opening price will need to be $4 million over 5.

    Casey Demons v North Melbourne VFL - Round 14

    Why is Dion out of the side?

    AFL Player Ratings

    It rates the off the ball stuff as well which is why Cunnington and McEvoy are up there. The other thing it rewards is playing games. I would assume that Cunnignton and McEvoy havent missed a game in the last 2 years which is why they are up there. You'll see them replaced by Fyfe, Gawn, Kelly and co. as soon as they have played 35 of the last 40 games.

    Still one of the easiest teams to score against

    Also this is a very selective statistic. We are ranked 9th for scores against, which is much better than the 16th once they are inside 50. The point is correct that because of the press that opposition score against us when they get it over the back. But to go from 9th to 18th (i.e. the best) team, it is reducing our scores against by 2 goals a game. To be up with St Kilda and Carlton as Gary has put us, teams would need to score 4 goals a game more each week. Yes we do need to reduce a goal or 2 per game that we give to other teams (although if you take our 3 blow outs - Haw, Rich, Coll, - and only make them 2 goal losses, it gets us a lot closer to the pin) - but there was something quite interesting Salem said today in the press conference - that Bernie and Lewis down back are helping Salem improve his game. Long run here, yes a fairy tale would be nice, but it is about getting the pieces to have a dynasty - not just a flash in the pan.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    @Deemania since 56 if you are talking about Stretch - probably 70% of his possessions were first touch possies and 30% receiving from others. Really good game from him.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    He lurks well and he is in the right positions just isn’t having that pick me game. I don’t know what the coaches are looking for but I thought we’d see him deep crumbing but seemed to play high half forward. The Hannan role. Interesting to see what happens for the rest of the year. We have to be a better team with him than without him.

    He does great things off the ball. He did great work off the ball in the forward line and was responsible for some Hogan goals. If he can get a break out game at Afl level it will really worry backlines. As Derm says: Hogan and McDonald could be the 2 best forwards in the comp. we’ve also got a really good third as well.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    Interesting discussion. Think back to the fact that we played Oscar underdeveloped because long term it was the right call. How long until we do the same with Petty? I think that the next 3 are perfect for Weid to see how his form is tracking. I think he just offers something different from our other talls. @DeeSpencer agree with Pedo. A see how this goes. He used to play back so it’s not new. @wizardinoz I don’t know if Pedo was near it enough to have a bad game =p what did people see in Garlett’s game? @dl4e?

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    Weideman had his breakout game. He has a 6 goal game last year against better opposition but for me this was better because the conditions were not key forward conditions, he took some unbelievable marks, he was not beaten in a contest, he was good around the ground, and played well in the ruck as well. Billy - Trac and ANB aren’t making way for him. He was fantastic around the contest and if Viney, Oliver, Jones were injured tomorrow he’d be first in. Maybe he might come in for someone like a Harmes but he is there ready to go when he is needed. The old cliche just be in good form when an opportunity is knocking and he was. Good he hit the score board, would have had a heap of metres gained as well. Both things that aren’t trademarks of his AFL career thus far. The backs - Frost was better this week because he played unaccountable football. And we know how good he is when he can run, kick and do what he wants. The issue is that this is not what we are asking of him at AFL level so it’s a bit hard to see him making it back in next week. Wouldn’t be surprised though. Pedo was good and locked down well. Petty played quite well but it wasn’t a day where the backman could star as it was an easy day at the office for them. Baker - sorry - not for mine just yet. Ran well, smart taps, good football sense. You can see he can make it, but not yet. JKH - really great inside outside game. Played some nice minutes as a high half forward. Will play great AFL football next year for a team that picks him up. Balic - time and space. Didn’t have a great game but you just can see AFL qualities and class in him. And a will to make it happen. This year is a Building year and looking forward to what he does JLT next year. Bugg is a tough one. Was not near it in the first half and then was great when he went into the centre. I’m interested to see what happens as the year progresses. Wouldn’t have had many metres gained, but was good in tight.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    Stretch continuing to be best on. Clearance numbers would be Oliver-esc. He is kicking really well and finding space. He does look like he could come in and play a role - I wonder though if Harmes and ANB are playing his role so he can’t get in? Weiderman is playing really well. Conditions not helping him but hasn’t been beaten and presented really well. I can see him being called back in sooner rather than later. Just a super talent and does all the basic stuff right. Playing really well in the ruck as well. Frost playing really solidly in the backline and his running and kicking setting us up. I think he will be an emergency next round at least. Spargo looks like he has hit the rookie wall. He looks spent! Playing inside mid though and doing some nice things. Does look classy but tired. Bugg quiet so they’ve moved him into the middle. Garlett sitting at the back of packs. IF he is brought back in its based on his training and team things, not on his performance. Petty and Pedo are solid. They aren’t really needed as it’s not in the back 50. Been impressed with Johnstone - changing my opinion of him. Balic pressuring but not having a great game. i know a lot of love for Baker out there. Not the sort of conditions or game for him. Coach would be happy with his pressure and running patterns though.

    Rain coming down now sadly. Would be good to have a clean game for our talls.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    He is but I’d be interested what he’s doing as he doesn’t seem to be the deep option but he’s not around the ball like a high half forward. @Drunkn167 can you confirm? Thanks. He just appeared with a good smoother.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    Pedo playing back - but doesn’t seem to be having an impact. Solid though. Really impressed with Bil and Weids. Just look so classy at this level. The 2 id be looking at for next week. Spargo playing inside mid. Doing alright but not dominating. JKH should have gone to Carlton. Would have played 13 games in the AFL next to Cripps. Frost probably the best of the backs for the second key forward. More for his run rather than his lock down work.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    What happens with games like this is that say Stretch and Garlett do the warm up with the boys in Adelaide and as soon as the game starts they are off to the airport and usually land before the game ends so they are ready to play on the Saturday. The issues lie when the game is on at the same time / the day after Casey. Agree that we do need to get more game time into some of these boys who havent played for a while.

    Correct. I don’t know where they were on our board but know that we were pleasantly suprised they fell that low. And both I feel have now shown they were worth more than their pick. Langdon starting to do the same.
