Changes against Hawthorn


Dr. Mubutu

Recommended Posts

Nice job Dr, very mature of you!

Out: Sellar, in Pedersen (deck chairs on the titanic)

Out: Bail, in Rodan (not that I rate Rodan but bail needs to work on his game)

Out: Gawn, in Fitzy (Gawn isn't going to well, time to try Fitzy)

Out: Terlich (inj) in Strauss

As we've seen multiple changes doesn't achieve anything. And Pedersen and Fitzpatrick are the two at Casey really making any impact. Rodan I think is next best.

We've got some more underperforming forwards at AFL level (Jetta, Tapscott) but I see little point in Kent, Blease or Taggert at this stage.

Nice and easy I think.

In: Strauss, Fitzpatrick, Pedersen

Out: Nicholson/Bail, Seller, Jetta

It reduces our run slightly, but it gives us much more versatility to have extras able to pinch hit in the ruck and also significantly better disposal. Pedersen goes back in place of Seller, Fitzpatrick into the forward line and Strauss to replace Nicho/Bail and hopefully kick it better. I love Nev, but from all reports he was putrid today.

The President Board and Coaching Staff...Out.

Please.

Yep

...and leave big Fitz out until after the bye or at least until the QB game. He doesn't need to cop Hawthorn and get dropped again.

Let him play a good run of games and give him a chance to show what he's got. They also have to make a choice between Gawn and Jamar. Big Max is not a forward he's a ruck man, one or the other boys. Fitz is the forward relief ruck until Clark gets back, Watts is the 2nd tall forward and when Clark gets back he is probably the number one ruck looking to next year with Dawes and Hogan taking key forwards, develop Fitz as the forward ruck.

Flood the midfield.

Clearly we don't need a traditional forward set up so bring Watts or Howe into the midfield.

Until we have Silvia, Viney, and Toumpas back we need to get creative.

Sydney use a similar plan, only 3 players front and back - the rest in the midfield... look how well that worked against the Hawks.

5 changes for mine this week, I know some of these are a bit late coming but they logical changes and for most of you these should have taken place.

Out: Hope, anticipation, optimism, confidence, positive expectation

In: Maudlin, crushing, unforgiving, despair and desolation

I'm looking for a huge tweo weeks from despair and desolation they have been buidling up really nicely over the season and against two sides like Hawks and Pies I'm really going out on a limb to say they will be best on in the next 2 weeks no questions asked!. The Hawks and Pies have nothing to stop those two for us.

Actually, I'd rather do it the other way round.

Out: Jamar, Sellar, Bail

In: Fitz, Pederson, Rodan.

Fitzy at FF. Pederson on last line of defence.

If T Mac is good to go then somebody should miss from Sunday's team because those 3 blokes deserve the call up.

We all would La but the coaching staff have been really pushing up with a few of the in's, maudlin has been on a real upward curve over the season since round one and unfortunately the 5 outs have been on the downward curve since round 1.

Agreed.

If we werent playing Hawks and Collingwood i would definitely want to bring in some youth. But that would be silly IMO. After the bye, as long as youth get games Id be happy.

Bring in youth? Apart from a few, the whole team is 'youth'. :mellow:

Pedersen IN for Sellar - Pedo deserves it after his last few weeks in the VFL.

Strauss IN for Nicholson - Should never have been dropped and his disposal although limited is that much better then Nicho's that he only needs half the touches.

Fitzpatrick IN for Gawn - Gawn's our future no 1 ruck,but he's not a forward, he's a ruckman. Fitzy on the other hand is a forward who can chop out in the ruck and his form for Casey earns him a call up. Gawn to get some game time as no 1 ruck at Casey.

Rodan IN for Bail - Rodan's been in good form for Casey and Bail's been in ordinary form.

MacDonald IN for Dunn - Joel's had a few games back now at VFL level and is a better defender then Dunn.

FB: Garland, Frawley, Terlich

HB: MacDonald, Pedersen, Strauss

C: M. Jones, N. Jones, Evans

HF: Howe, Watts, Tapscott

FF: Fitzpatrick, Dawes, Byrnes

FOLL: Jamar, McKenzie, Magner

INT: Davey, Jetta, Trengove

SUB: Rodan

EMERG: Davis, Nicholson, Toumpas

Nicholson on standbye in case Terlich doesn't come up. Ideally I'd have Davis come in if any of the key position players are late withdrawls. I'd have no real desire to play Toumpas, but need to have at least 1 midfielder in the emergencies in case there's a few late injuries and there's not to many other midfielders to choose from!

Not a bad line up......

im only hanging by a thread like most these days

but the improvement of jhowe has been a weekly watch for me

i am getting excited with the change of duties the fd is giving this young man every week

really looking forward to the job he gets this week

wonder how many other players are getting something out of this rebuild and learning SOMETHING different

its a regular weekly thing these days to see changes and wonder if improvement is made by players coming into

the team and getting free games at afl level

please tell me about a player that can come into the team and improve himself and be an asset next season

Agreed. Fitz needs a run of games to gain momentum and confidence. He's played well at Casey of late. He's earned an opportunity, but don't drop him after 1, 2 or 3 games. He needs 5-6 or more for his worth to be assessed more accurately. God, were giving numerous games to so many who don't produce, why not give Fitz a go?

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
