I think we'll need a better plan than this to encourage players to Step Up if we're ever to get truly serious ?

I think this looks like jeffy's 2018 step ladder.  Note it's brand new showroom condition.  unused as yet jeffy.

Has McCartin ever played against us? I’m thinking maybe once at the G, but he always seems to be out against us. 

 

Breakout game alert. Big 3.3 coming up...

So why did they “rest” their most consistent midfielder and arguably their best!? Weird [censored]!

Plenty of the old  "list-management" going on, in 2018.

He’s has never had the chance to be one of Oscar’s b*tches.

Not sure if CP and Hogan play or if we win or lose, but playing them without Nick and Joey is a big plus for us.

Hopefully Hogan plays. I have never known him not to click against this mob.

So are you thinking they need to drop all 3 or just 1? Is leg speed your issue? 

I think leg speed is there issue but I also think they are needed to lead and direct on the ground. 

I would have one of either Lewis or Vince in the team at any one time. Jones would be in the team as Captain although I believe he is not a great captain during the game quarter to quarter 

i want to see more speed through the middle. With them there I see us as one dimensional at times.

If we can’t beat the saints by at least 40 points we are kidding ourselves. I really hope they come out with some intent to physically crush these muppets from Moorabbin.

He's actually played a couple of stinkers v's the Saints.

2015 - 7 possessions 1 goal - MCG loss

2016 - 10 possessions 1 goal - Etihad loss

 

Granted the other 3 games he played against St Kilda he averaged 5.

It's the Lions he has complete ownership of.

They will come out all guns blazing trying to prove they aren't the rabble everyone suspects them to be. Weather the storm in the first quarter then put the foot down. We should really be winning this one comfortably.

Acres is a big out for the Saints! He normally plays very well v the Dees...

Hogan and Petracca I don’t think play. Hogan is banged up and needs a week off! Petracca hasn’t touched any footballs this week and needs the same. This will be highly beneficial in the short and long term for the season. 

I will be shocked if either play. This is where Melbourne need to play 100% fit players. It would be a smack in the mouth to the players on extended interchange who are listed to replace these two.

OUT- Salem, Hogan

IN- Garlett, Tim Smith Or Pedo

I would like to see Garlett play high forward midfield this week. Pace around the stoppages in the centre and wings give us x-factor. I like Sparky in the F50 as our crumping player.

Tim Smith or Pedo play inside 50. I think Smith gets the nod here...

He does play well against us. The one game he missed against us (rd 1 2017), we beat them.

I didn't want to start a new thread, but given it's St Kilda v Melbourne playing this week, it's an appropriate time to ask the following: Is Carl Ditterich the only player in VFL/AFL history to have played with two clubs twice? That is, Carl played with St Kilda, then Melbourne, then St Kilda again and then Melbourne again. Has anyone else done that?

PS: This game should be played for the Carl Ditterich Cup, which should have a nice, white headband attached to the top.

This confirms my confirmation bias that jnr has a small problem with comprehension.
