The voice of reason, has to happen. Those of you saying that Cook isnt ready and will get destroyed, how about you look at Jeremey Cameron, he seems to be doing fine and he has done half an afl pre se

All this talk of cook getting smashed because he is too small makes me look at Chris Dawes and wonder what his problem is? It's not a body building competition it's footy. As has been said Jeremy Came

I hear what you're saying, but I just think from a culture point of view we have to reward him with a game.

I know it's popular to drag on about the Couch, but it's starting to seriously annoy me.

What more does he need to do?

Give Mags a rest if need be (if he's holding his spot, although that's now as a defensive forward so not sure about the logic there either). Just play the kid. We're third bottom and we have a guy whose racking up 25 possessions and kicking 4 goals, and performing close to that level consistently, considered not to be best 22? Why? How?

Davey must come back into the side.

One of the rare MFC players that can actually hit the side of a barn.

You have my vote BBP,

Ten kicks from Davey is worth more than 30 from Bail and 5 of his mates

Whats peoples obsession with Cook and Couch.

I honestly can't see Cook being as good as Dunn yet nor can I see Couch being as good as Moloney yet.

VFL to AFL is a big jump. We saw what happened to Jack Watts when he got brought in early...

I agree with you on Cook but Couch is not a kid he is 24

Why did we recruit him and elevate him before the first game?

Give him a game mate we are constantly losing by 10 goals how can he do worse than about 10 in the team.

Becuase both Dunn and Moloney are offering very little at the moment, at their best agree with your comments but in particular Moloney his form this year has been extremely bad, he needs a rocket, he needs to find confidence he needs time at Casey. To me playing Dunn is looking in the rear view mirror, we need to give Cook a taste, we are crap playing Couch and Cook won't make us any worse.

Cook I'm happy that they're taking their time, he's a young KPP and he would be monstered by the defenders in the AFL and I reckon he'll get a game at some point this year just to give him a taste.

The "obsession" with Couch is that we elevated him at the startof the year and were told we'd only elevate if they were going to play in the seniors. He's been pretty consistently in the best for Casey, and now this week has had a stand out gave only overshadowed by Greens bag.

Magner is also out of form/exhausted, so I reckon if we're ever going to play him it'd have t be this week.

Because in the culture of competition for spots and hence developing team improvement we need to reward guys who perform at Casey with AFL games.

That's how we become a better team.

Yes, Davey is a better kick than Bail. What about ... effort? persistence? tackling? endurance? not spitting the dummy? etc etc etc

For people bagging Cook - What target are you planning on kicking to when we are struggling for goals???

A couple of backmen?? Or Stefan Martin who can't play forward??

Its not going to destroy our finals hopes (although you were probably the ones who had us down for 6th spot), play Cook, let him learn, give him a taste so he knows what it takes at the top level. We have nothing to lose & we have to see how he goes sooner or later, for those of you saying hes a twig hes the same size as Watts & Cameron.

From all reports he's been doing well at Casey, may not of been kicking bags lately but has been performing his role well up the ground. I just don't understand the people who cry because we have no one to kick to yet don't want to see or give a chance to a pick#12 All Australian CHF. He may not play this week but I'd expect to next week for sure.

If you kick it out on the full or to the other team it is often a worse result than not getting the ball in the first place.

Two weeks in a row we have missed Davey's accurate kicking, Bail has murdered us with his kicking out on the full or direct to the opposition.

it is hard to kick goals when you give the ball to the opposition

What is the process involved to get Couch back on the list of available players to be selected. I understand he was taken off a few weeks earlier.

Magner comment: IMO he was played out of position in both Brisbane and Tigers games. He seems to me to be a midfielder/Tagging role not a goal scoring forward. Swing him back in the Guts.

Cook is learning at Casey. Must promote on Form otherwise everyone gets upset. Green and Couch could go before him. Anyone know how L. Williams is travelling?

Maybe we should draft Travis Boak at pick 4 then!!! Boak averages 64% disposal efficiency and 3 clangers a game, so much better than Bail who averages 61% disposal efficiency & 2.6 clangers a game!!!

I guess Boak gets alot more footy and thats what makes him pick 4 worthy!! IWUAEHIIUE.

I reckon Green in for Dunn (suspension)

Gysberts in for Magner

Jamar (if fit) in for Spencer (stiff, I liked his game, showed some grunt and confidence grew throughout the game).

cheers

I like these changes Stinga-I bet the club does also .

Isnt Boak the saviour of our football club though.....?

Too right Mr Gates, Boak is overrated and I would gladly take cloke and still have pick 3,4, 13.

I am taking a bit of a punt here (but listening to the injury report) it sounded as though Tom McDonald is a pretty good chance to play this week...

In: Jamar, Green, T McDonald, Davey

Out: Spencer, Bennell, Magner, Tapscott

Gysberts and Couch considered unlucky, but 4 changes is probably unlikely as it is.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
