Thought Bode played well last night given it was his first match. His tackling is great.

In: McLean, Buckley

Out: Frawley (inj.), Brown (was good in patches last night, but his kicking is killing me!).

it says on injuryupdate.com.au that brock will miss 1-2 matches with a groin. :(

With the way the boys played against the bulldogs last night i would leave the team as it is and keep playing the youngstars, however if frawley doesn't pull up then bring Bate in for him (if fit)

Not so sure Bate will pull up if he didn't play for Sandy this weekend.

And before he was injured he was very average. There'd be a few others I'd put before him to play a part in such a huge game.

I'd even prefer to see Yze in playing alongside his longtime friend and teammate but if we're going for a win, then my choices would be:

In: McLean (if not fit, then Buckley), Garland (from all accounts seems to be deserving of a spot, and we are all about 'playing the youngsters' ;) )

Out: Moloney (only because I agree with YMs sentiments - he should be rested for the remainder of the season or he will do some serious damage), Frawley (injured)

I really wouldn't like to see too many more changes made than that as Saturday night's performance really was a group effort and it was difficult to isolate top performances, with the exception of Jones.

No need for any big changes.

Bring in Mclean or Bate if fit. Out goes Frawley injured, replaced by one of those 2.

Brown was close to BOG. Its a harsh call. While Bode just went.

If you want to win against the Pies, you drop them. On the other hand if you want to lose........

When you get 5 votes in the Herald Sun and BOG, its highly unlikely you'll be dropped.

Brown we'll be there for the big occasion.

Yes Bode just went, but he'd been in the best for Sandy for weeks on end. I'd give him more of an opportunity to rise to the pace of the game before dropping him back. By the same token, Buckley had been ordinary for weeks in the firsts, but went back to Sandy and looked a class above. You could argue a case either way; reward him for some very good form, or leave him at Sandy to consolidate it.

After Saturday night we have as much chance of seeing Brown dropped as we do of seeing Nathan Jones dropped. His game was as good as they come. He stays in.

I have no preference for Jamar over PJ. IMO Jamar was okay on Saturday night and Collingwood's second string rucks are average. PJ at this point looks like he may be the superior player, however like old55 I've not completely written Jamar off.

In the absense of Rivers and now Frawley we have a key back position available for one of the NQRs to fill. Bizzell is my preference over Ferguson. Both are "tall backs" who can "play forward" (i.e. they're ordinary backmen and worse forwards), but to me Bizzell is the lesser of two evils.

Are we expecting Bate back?

Why not Garland?

I know we desperately want to win this match, but we still shouldn't lose sight of the bigger picture.

Garland was named in the bests for Sandy, Bizzell wasn't.

And I know Brown won't get dropped, I'm just hoping.

His low kicks send me into a fit of rage. Just kick the ball a bit higher Browny, PLEASE!!! :unsure:

We also need to look at how Collingwood will line-up.

I'm worried about Cloke. Do we play Carroll on him?

Dutchy on Rocca and Bell to give Didak a spanking again.

I think Miller might be back this week, especially if Frawley doesn't come up.

I actually forgot about Garland. That said I don't think there's much to be gained by playing him again at this point. Let him slowly build his confidence and skill set at Sandringham, that's why we have the alignment.

Playing kids who aren't ready yet is like trying to start a car in 4th gear. Sure, you eventually reach top speed, but it takes a lot longer and it's a pretty bumpy ride along the way.

I disagree completely.

Playing youngsters before they are ready fast-tracks their development significantly. They might struggle for a few games, but in the long-run a player who gets runs with the seniors will develop quicker than a player that rots away at sandy.

people do not realize what a massive skill level and pace difference their is between vfl and afl. it's like playing 2 different sports afl is that much better standard. young players gain alot from senior experience and it really bugs me when people outrightly declare that theyd prefer to see pickett and brown in the team ahead of Buckley, Dunn and Garland when our season was over 8 weeks ago and have openly declared we are playing for 2008 and beyond.

All in all, I want our best side in against the Pies. I want to destroy them!

They have a young team & it's proving costly now at seasons end. We need our strongest, most reliable team for Friday night.

B: Brown Carroll Bell

HB: Wheatley Holland Green

C: Johnstone McDonald Moloney

HF: Pickett Newton Davey

F: Bate Neitz Robertson

RR: White McLean Jones

Int: Jamar, Bizzell, Sylvia, Miller

Emg (from): Buckley, P. Johnson, C. Johnson, Garland

I believe with this side in, we should get over the line.

But a pretty good side none the less. ;)

Worn out record! Jaded, did you watch Brown closely on Sat night? I took particular note of his kicking and there were very few times he didn't hit his target. Give him a break, and focus on his guts and determination. You could never contemplate dropping him after last week.

Brown wont be dropped. He played well on the weekend, and has been giving his all in this bleak season. He will definately be there for his good friend Neita's 300th, and likely play every game left this season, then probably retire at the end of the year.

Brown was sensational on the weekend, no way in the world does he get dropped

He will be there on Friday night vs the Filth, giving his all for the skipper and for the Red and Blue

    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
