I know that just because we were less than impressive in a 10 goal win and the Pies were impressive against the Cats that it means absolutely nothing when the two teams play each other a fortnight later. To say the Pies will smash us is a silly comment.

I agree. The Pies especially haven't shown a lot of consistency this year. Sure, they might beat us, but I wouldn't confidently punt on that. In fact, If I were to punt on this game I would back us in (against Collingwood). If you were to factor in the NAB cup we would be the more consistent side. How anyone could confidently tip Collingwood is beyond me.

You don't know much about footy if you think the matchup will be the same. Collingwood are a completely different side than 1 mth ago. We would've got beaten by 15 other sides last weekend

And we have only added Petracca, Stretch, ANBHunt, Garlett, Newton, O. McD and Vince, so l guess that we'll get smashed by the 'new-look Pies', especially when we also bring in Oliver and Trenners!

How much are you in for?

I'll take $2000 we finish inside 6 goals of Collingwood

I'll put 10g on it. Third man up may just be Jeremy Howe who's confidence would be sky high after 2 good games in a row, something he previously couldn't do in 99 games with the dees.

Wherever jack returns, bank on him being 100% fit and ready to go. Roos does not bring in players who aren't ready physically or mentally. He doesn't have to with adequate depth this year.

If he is fit enough then I hope he plays. He's a versatile player and it will be great to see him back in red and blue. He could play midfield, half forward or half back. With Viney out for a few weeks and a few youngsters struggling, hopefully he gets a gig.

OMac last week, Tyson this week definitely wasn't 100%. Lumumba played, was horrible, and then was found to be suffering concussion and has since missed 3-4 weeks.  I appreciate the sentiment but I don't think it's correct.

Especially with no Taylor Adams, Fasola or Moore for up to a month.

that hurts them far more than no Viney hurts us.

Just because a player doesn't play well, doesn't mean they are injured.

Lets just hope that he has a good one and can hold his place long term. Go Jack - Go Dee's

How was omac not ready? Lumumba has played 200+ games, if he tells coaching staff he is ready, they believe him. Difference between playing poorly and not being ready.

Spewing from a personal pov if it is this weekend. I've said from the start that I would travel anywhere to see his return but with my young blokes Auskick gala day this weekend which he's been looking forward to, I'll unfortunately have to switch priorities and make it over for the QB game.

Will get just as much joy watching it on the Tele.

OMac may not have been injured but IMO he hasn't been ready physically or mentally.  This has been discussed at length on other threads.

Roos said after the St Kilda game that he (Lumumba) was suffering from concussion and probably shouldn't have played.  

Tyson's form had been improving before he picked up a virus.  Last week was either an incredible drop in form or he was still suffering the affects of the illness.  I'd back the latter.

Also Roosy has acknowledged a few times now that they should have dropped some of the younger guys because they were sore and/or tired.  In effect they weren't 100%.

I think they'd be quite reluctant to rest Tyson given Viney is already out, but otherwise i think he definitely needs a week off.

Would be amazing to see Trenners back, but gee I'd hate to see him come back in a game where we get smashed.Hold him backs week. QB comeback in front of a massive crowd, we roll the Pies and Wattsy kicks 7. That would be fitting

How about we not try to manufacture scenarios and just play the bloke if he's ready and makes us better ?

And also allow him to get re-acquainted against the best competition in the league. No point debuting him against Collingwood who will probably be softer than Hawthorn.

    JUNGLE KINGS by George On The Outer

    The top of the table Brisbane Lions came into their game against Melbourne thinking they were kings of the AFL Jungle. However, by game’s end they were shown to be toothless, as the rampant Demons gave them a lesson about the exact level you have to be at to justify that mantle.  The first quarter saw Brisbane squander some easy chances in front of goal, which kept Melbourne within striking distance and, as a result, the Lions led by a mere goal. Of course, it could have been so much d

    A STEP FORWARD? by The Oracle

    The winds of change have blown through the Melbourne Football Club over the past month or so as the team previously known for applying relentless pressure on opponents dramatically fell from its pedestal to a low not seen for some three years. This is a team that had the luxury of going through last season with one of the healthiest lists in the competition. And that health was not only reflected in a weekly injury list that revealed very few key players missing, but importantly, even fewer

    HUMBLE PIE by George on the Outer

    Seventeen wins in a row followed by a trio of losses.  The invincible Demon juggernaut was simply humbled by the Pies in that third loss, as once again they gave up an early three goal plus lead, to be over-run in the end. Is it loading? Perhaps. Is it the loss of players? Perhaps More likely, they are a combination of the two. Certainly, we have seen the side take an early lead in all of these games only to fade as reflected on the scoreboard where Melbourne has been outscored

    EARLY FREEZE by KC from Casey

    If the publicity ahead of Queens Birthday Monday was all about the Big Freeze and the game to follow the pre-game entertainment then the hardy group that braved the country’s cold snap to travel out to the windy plains beyond Cranbourne were given an early taste of what was to come in the Casey's big 52-point win over Collingwood VFL. The day started well with the Demons comprehensively beating the VFLW Magpies in the curtain-raiser elimination final and then their male counterparts donned

    THE CURSE by Norm Smith’s Ghost

    Melbourne’s fortunes took a dramatic turn for the worst on the day the Anthony Albanese was elected as Prime Minister. Since that fateful day, Steven May pinged his hamstring early in the match against the Dockers, Harry Petty came off the ground in consecutive games feeling the worse for wear, it was revealed that Tom McDonald’s foot was in messy shape, the Herald Sun exclusively reported that two years ago, Demon committee members exchanged emails critical of the team after it lost a game by 5

    BANGED UP by George On The Outer

    Melbourne v Sydney. City v City. Two top eight sides fighting for finals spots.  Sydney having beaten the Demons in ten of their last twelve encounters.    In what would turn out to be one of the most hotly contested games for the club in 2022, the physical damage to players was probably the deciding factor in the end.   Once again, Melbourne lost Tom McDonald pre-game to a yet unspecified foot injury.  More importantly was how much his work up the ground and bullocking influ

    TEN by KC from Casey

    The slippery surface of the MCG was a minor detail for the Casey Demons as they waltzed away from the Sydney Swans to record their tenth win on end in their Saturday afternoon curtain raiser. The Demons conceded the first goal of the game before recording the next three (two to Sam Weideman) to hold a 16 point lead at the first break before the Swans pegged that back to a mere three points at half time. Casey dominated the third term with four goals to nil and thereafter the Swans’ resistan

    THE COMEBACK by Whispering Jack

    How will Melbourne react to losing a game after such a long time since tasting defeat? That question is on everybody’s lips after the complete collapse of the team in the second half against Fremantle last week. When Bayley Fritsch missed his shot at goal 23 minutes into the second term, the Demons were 30 points ahead but from that point onward they were comprehensively overwhelmed as their structures fell apart all over the park. Unlike what occurred on a number of occasions during their

    SURVIVAL MODE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons managed to survive a day of challenges that in many ways mirrored their AFL counterpart Narrm from the previous day but Casey emerged undefeated from their Round 10 encounter with Frankston at Skybus Stadium. Like the Demon seniors they were undermanned and lost players due to late withdrawals, went through an arm wrestle in the first quarters, took over the game in the second to set up a big lead before a late goal gave hope to their opponent and limped through a last half

    DEES-MANTLED by George On The Outer

    Well the streak has finally ended, but in the worst possible way, when Fremantle absolutely dismantled Melbourne to record an emphatic 38 point win. This ended the 17 game winning streak of the Demons, but worse to report was that Melbourne led the game by nearly 5 goals in the second quarter, before the Dockers banged through 10 straight goals. In fact they kicked 13 goals to 1 from that point just before half time. So what happened?  Melbourne aren’t accustomed

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca
