You lost me as soon as you said it was on preseason form then included Hore for round 1 who is a recruit who has not even trained with the main group. How does this logic stand up?

Surely Natalie Portman is in the conversation if we’re talking about pre season form

You wouldn't have a team based on pre season form. I said I considered pre season form. That's why Frost, Spargo and Fritsch are in and O.Mac, Hannan and Vanders are out.

Yet you have included someone with no exposed AFL form nor even any pre-season guides to allude to... Sorry still a bit lost.

Er apart from Hore, I have watched Viney, Brayshaw, Jetta, Harmes, Oliver, Petracca and Melksham in rehab so their pre season form has been hard to judge, although they have trained well

I think we should wait until at least the JLT games til we start to put new recruits in the best 22. I think the only exception at the moment is May. KK and Pruess probably get a look in too but the 18 years olds and ex-VFL will have to earn that spot and it's way too early to make those calls.

What about VFL form. He back to full training now anyway. I think he's the perfect replacement for Lever.

...only weakness is OMac at CHB instead of Frosty. Shame that Hannan fits as an emergency but this is the state of the list, I guess. OMac should be an emergency in our opinions, with some serious running time and practice in the Casey team for some time.

Barring any injuries VandenBerg is a shoein and is in our best 22 IMO. The kind of player with the big body  aggressive and hits hard.

Yeah I agree with that. Even though his disposal is sometimes deplorable the rest of him makes him an important member of the team

I'm with you Werridee. Love a pre-emptive 22. My mates do them all off-season. After draft day. After trade week. They're fun.

Hore is a break in case of emergency guy. He'll come in for maybe 6 games as our KP defenders struggle or get hurt. OMac as usual is the whipping boy, but people do seem to forget the match committee absolutely love him. He played every game last year for some reason. Demonlanders should probably get on board, or at least understand he will get picked despite what they think.

I reckon you always have to earmark one, maybe two surprises in there as well. Goody loves to play a debutant round 1. Fritsch last year. Smith the year before that. I feel like with Oliver rehabbing they might get Sparrow a game, as he's physically ready.

Vandenberg's ending to the 2018 season was astonishing to me.  I didn't think he had it in him, to that level.  His impact was fantastic. And his speed, I hadn't realised.

We were finally playing like men.... and opposition did not know what to make of us.  Some sure  got out of our way in a hurry.

 

Watch out for the Cat-attack re-Match...   Selwood and coach Johnson have a plan for us... pencil it in.

    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

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne atoned for the heartbreak of its frustrating finish to the 2017 season by, at long last, making the finals and then disposed of two highly credentialed and experienced teams in Geelong and Hawthorn before it capitulated meekly to eventual premier West Coast in the Preliminary Final in Perth. The club’s progression has been forward and upward since it finished 2013 with two wins and appointed Paul Roos as coach. The number has increased to four, seven, 10, 12, and now 14 games. The

    DRAFT STORY: THE BYSTANDERS by Whispering Jack

    It was an eerie feeling, like floating on air high above the events taking place on the ground below. This was the New Draft, a two day festival of little importance to Melbourne supporters on the first night and seemingly, of little consequence on the following day. It was as if we were the bystanders of the 2018 AFL National Draft. From the time the Demons traded away their first round selection in this year’s event as part of the deal to secure Jake Lever more than 12 months ago, it was
