Brock played last time and struggled

Thanks I mustve blocked it out! Or I was too busy booing.

Sylvia should be included. If Viney was fair dinkum about making a statement then he would have benched or dropped Green.

I hope the 22 that end up taking the field on Saturday put in, unlike that deplorable effort last week. If there wasn;t enough motivation to win after the week we've had, the claims of bruise-free footy should inspire us to want to hammer these blokes.

Sylvia was the one photographed out and about on Saturday night last week wasnt he? So perhaps theyve taken a dim view of this.

Possibly the first time since his debut year he's been dropped? Same for Jurrah.

I've been cryin' out loud for some Real selection Statements this year, & it looks like they've Scratched a line in the Selection Table top!

Not one of the so called "leadership" group dropped. Great statement "pi*s weak performances are accepted at Melbourne". Nicko dropped?? the only one who went into battle for Dunn when Chappy lost it!!

Other than Jamar injured, And Sylvia looks like a discipline thing, the others are physically weak.

Looking like all power to the people week... 'Bring It On' !!!

Nicho will be out simply because Bartram has forced his way back in- not as a statement.

Sylvia and Jurrah are the statements.

Part of being in the leadership group will be to put it right on them to extract the digits this week and for the next 5- they were never going to get dropped.

He is the captain that has given another week.

But I agree if he was not the captain he would have been dropped weeks ago or should have been

I reckon it's rough to single out Sylvia for ommssion. Jurrah has been below the required intensity all year but Sylvia has been one of our best players and there should be plenty ahead of him in the queue to be dropped. Green is an obvious choice, Garland is out of form and even Moloney is lucky given he hasn't fired a shot against decent opposition all season.

Sylvia can eat it.

He was supposed to have given up his petulant routine and matured.

Evidently not...

agree all talk and little action.

I like him but he has given little this year.

He may be trade bait in 5 weeks time.

Green may well be benched at the start of the game.

I think you are wrong- Viney has been fair dinkum. From his first press conference he appears to have carried himself the way he played- hard and fearless.

Let's hope the boys play like that too!

Reckon it is good night at the selection table.

They have made a statement with a couple of blokes and our team might actually still be stronger this week (Jamar aside).

I suspect he is one of the players giving trouble.

Has not resigned for 2012 and is looking like he does not care a lot lately.

The last 5 weeks are put up or shut up time under Viney.

He does not want the job next year and I think he saying well fellas

show everyone what you have got.

I doubt we will see the likes of Maric, Nicholson and Bennell again this year.

The older players will be under full view.

Green needs to do a Lloyd, and Sewell Chris Judd at the opening bounce to win me back.

Some horrid foot skills with those ins, but at least 3 of the ins are hard at it, and one has something to prove.

Perhaps it is redeem yourselves boys.

I reckon anyone of that group who puts in a poor game this weekend will be watching for a couple of weeks.

I agree ..... and nobody from Casey was exactly putting up their hands for promotion. Next week is the time to drop the 'wanna be leaders' if they serve up crap against the scum. They have the message, no more [censored]-footing around with selections, we are fair dinkum, 'respond or you're out'!

Green should go toe to toe with Judd, he may get beaten but at least we will once and for all find out what he is all about. LEAD FROM THE FRONT or stand down.

Green couldn't compete with Port Adelaide's midfield, let alone Judd.

Terrible suggestion.

If anything, he should be playing in the VFL.

Strauss's repeated inclusion in the team is evidence of the ongoing belief at our club that it is okay to be timid as long as you can kick the ball well when you've got 20m of space. He is the quintessential Melbourne softy.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
