In: Robertson (plays QB well, need his goal kicking), Cheney (surely is doing enough at Casey to warrant a recall)

Out: I have no idea. Miller certainly will come under consideration. Otherwise, Bell? Whelan?

I'd like to think that Daniel Bell gets another week to settle and have a crack at it.

I agree that with our forward like functioning like an U12's we definately need a marking target, I'll probably get shot down for this one but I think Newton could be given another opportunity without Miller in the side as a lead up target.

Don't worry about the question marks NJ, you are spot on with this one ;)

In Robertson, Cheney

Out Martin, Miller

What's that for? I'd have thought that, given Collingwood's forward line, Martin could play as a forward this week.

Would be good to debut someone on QB but if they aint ready...

This team won't be picked until Sat so extended bench of Cheney, Newton, and Robertson is my guess.

In: Newton, Cheney

Out: Miller, Johnson

I'd be happy with any combination of the above.

I want to see Newton get a real crack. From what I've heard from Casey watchers, his work rate is good enough; he chases and applies defensive pressure, which makes him a better option than Robertson at the moment. Confidence is his biggest worry at the moment IMO; give him a chance to build on it. If he still flounders it must be just about career over. The worst thing that could happen is we lose. Big whoop.

I want to keep Bell in for another week as well. Like Newton he's currently fighting for his career.

I don't rate PJ. I'd rather play a small who can get the ball in his place. Cheney is my choice. He's busting the door down to be picked, which is great, and he's been stiff to miss out for the last couple of weeks. I doubt this move will happen though.

I think Miller's form speaks for itself.

Maybe, but I'm fence sitting aren't I...

Miller might be in trouble, Bell did little, and Martin is struggling to find a place at the minute. Two of those might make way.

Really want to see more of Cheney.

With Jamar back, Martin either plays down back or doesn't play. If Cloke plays Martin might keep his spot, otherwise a spell at Casey wouldn't hurt. Miller, form is the key, this guy has lost form.

I have a feeling that Newton's passport has already been stamped with the exit visa and no further entries.

In: Cheney, Robbo/Newton (please be Robbo. Don't think I can handle Newton again)

Out: PJ, Whelan

I will probably get crucified for suggesting we drop Wheels, but to be honest he is just not accountable enough these days and I think Cheney desperately deserves a game.

Miller could be under the pump as well, but in reality if you take him out we have nobody to replace him in that CHF position... unless we choose to play an undersized Sylvia.

Jamar to be given the chance to ruck the entire game, with Martin helping out in the forwardline. If we could manage with PJ as lone ruckman, we can manage with Jamar too.

As one who attended yesterday's Casey games, I would say that Robertson, Newton and Jurrah where the pick of the forwards in a good Casey win against good opposition. All three of them kicked waywardly at times, Robbo and Newton in particular. Cheney had a very good game.; Jurrah could be anything.

In Cheney, Newton, Robertson

Out Miller, Bate, Johnson

I love the IN:OUT threads, so many opinions none of them right. Or should I say correct.

OUT Bell

IN Cheney

I have said before that we shouldn't play a guy for 1 week then drop him, Bell is the exception.

Newton get a real crack how much longer did you want to keep him in there without a result. The crows game was the last straw for me sorry stamp that passport of to the Gold Coast.

Bell a little unlucky to get dropped but he didn't do anything to demand to be kept in the side. Robbo & Newton to add marking power to the forward line and allow Martin to go back to defence where he plays his best football.

Well, if you have a look at a couple of my "INS", you might have a clue.

We have Martin who can pinch hit in the ruck, to help Jamar. Which is what Melbourne have been doing with PJ, whilst Jamar has been out. Do you watch the footy?

Lets give Martin 2 or 3 weeks at Casey to play the entire game as a key marking forward and let him learn the position against weaker opposition than AFL and see if he can come back and have an impact up forward...

Bell won't be dropped. They've got to give him another chance, having only just come back into the side. I also think Robbo should be out for an extra week and Newton should come in. Cheney does deserve a game, but with Bell only just coming back, I don't see him fitting in. Bennell was a shining light in the Saints game, while Grimes was the other. Are they not both similar to Cheney? Also, the criticism of Martin is a little harsh. He's just being played out of position. Put him down back.

Our Backline is OK so martin to continue to develop as a forward. I think your spot on re cheney, maybe if Jmac does not come up after that horrible knee twist/bend he could be a chance. Robbo and LJ are both a chance for this week.

In- Hughes, Robertson, Cheney

Out- Miller, Whelen, Martin,

Hughes- has been playing well for casey, he has that sort of x factor, would rather see him have a crack before Newton comes back into the side.

Robertson- played well for casey on the weekend, having kicked 3 goals 6, the in e chased very well and he is a proven performer in queens birthday matches.

Cheney- was very stiff to be omitted for the stkilda game, he was in the best 2 on the weekend by far by taking 10 grabs, and having 30+ disposals.

Miller- Time For a rest at casey

Whelen- Game has gone past him, Its too quick for the wrecker im afraid.

Martin- Needs to go back to the twos and get some confidence.

Agree. I think Newton has one life left to make it as an AFL footballer. This may be it.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new Football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.  The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that 2 ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should have be

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
