  1. I agree with all of the arguments about early picks etc not being the answer but I would still like to see the club throw out a curve ball by applying for a priority pick on the basis of our mediocre performance this year. After all, even Garry Lyon thinks we’re cr@p and we’ve played in the finals once in 13 years. Oops, sorry. We’re nice guys. We don’t rock boats, we sink in them.
  2. 6. Angus Brayshaw 5. Christian Petracca 4. James Harmes 3. Sam Frost 2. Clayton Oliver 1. Bayley Fritsch
  3. We really have to be very careful with our team selections now that our season’s well and truly cooked. We don’t want some hack journo with an agenda coming up with a half-cocked conspiracy theory based on us dropping an out of form player that we’re tanking for draft picks.

  5. Casey win by 13 points. You have to have faith, my friend.
  6. On another tack - Carlton’s website does an opposition watch every week. This is the one for Melbourne.
  7. The only guarantees we have is that for once Preuss plays. He’s a lock if Max is unfit to play but if Max is declared fit to play but re-injures himself, there’s going to be hell to pay if he doesn’t.

  9. Probably wouldn’t have made the difference between a win and a loss but we did lose a key forward before the game and a key defender five minutes in - this sort of thing is a weekly phenomenon.
  10. Missed last week due to “soreness” and misses again this week. Translation: at Melbourne this means a likely 4 - 6 weeks if he can avoid surgery to overcome the “soreness”
  11. The VFL hasn’t had a “reserves” competition since dumping the Development League at the end of 2017.

  13. Could history repeat and Petty get another game against St Kilda.
  14. The injury toll will certainly be reflected in the team for tomorrow’s game. Here’s my list of Melbourne players available for Casey based on the injury list* - 12. Toby Bedford 15. Billy Stretch 16. Kade Kolodjashnij 20. Corey Maynard 21. Braydon Preuss 23. James Jordon 33. Harrison Petty 35. Oskar Baker 37. Kade Chandler 41. Jay Lockhart 42. Josh Wagner 45. Declan Keilty 46. Austin Bradtke * assuming Steven May is not available to play for Casey due to his suspension.
  15. How many thousands who normally go in by train are missing out today?
  16. It’s becoming a common problem with footballers these days. Hopefully, he’ll come good.
  17. Just thinking about it. A long drive to Shep. Twenty bucks admission to watch a game played in close to 40 degree heat. Alternative - go to the beach. Tough decision.
  18. Mumford is already due to miss two games because of a club-imposed suspension for an off-field incident. This is an opportunity for the MRP to show there’s no place for thuggery - 3 weeks.
