Wiseblood, are you sure you're not a Collingwood supporter that's logged in to the wrong site?

I don't remember 'Wise' ever being so cynical & vindictive from years back???? 

 

maybe something has happened to wise over the lat 12 - 18 months, which may have banged him up a bit. changed him?    lets cut him some slack.

Maybe he should give himself a rest from the site now and again like I do

For the regular track watchers at this time of year, to assuage those concerned with the size of the rehab group at the moment,  if Round 1 was next week,  who would realistically be unavailable for selection? 

I assume it would be Lamumba, Dawes, Trengove and Petracca?

Was talking to Max King during the week. He cops heaps from the boys because he is forced to eat 3/4 steaks for dinner every night. He has to eat to the point of making himself sick to put on size. Not much fun he reckons.

Wish I had that problem!

Why doesn't he just eat a whole steak ? :rolleyes:

Big crowd expected at next training session.

Monday 15 February - Gosch's Paddock - 1.45am

Saw that.  I like the commitment. 

I also saw Saty say that the intraclub will be Friday.  Good thing we're supporting Collingwood so none of us have jobs we need to be at or anything.  Sorry, Anyfink.

Especially for the insomniacs.

I was thinking more of the werewolf & zombie crowd. The Demons would be the natural club to support for the undead. They embody our "never-say-die" spirit.

A part of our supporter group we don't often get to see.

That said, I've never had Matt Jones and Terlich in the same category. I reckon Matt Jones is a good player who can perform a role in the seniors. Think he's unfairly maligned by many here.
 

 

Agreed. Some posters should re-watch our win over Geelong last season. Matt Jones was one of our best.

 

Also wish people would remember that neither of these players can be faulted for their effort, endeavor or comittment. These things matter. They do not deserve the venomous attacks that are all too often made against them on these forums.

If Matt Jones and Dean Terlich are even close to our best 22 then we've gone backwards.

I don't give a toss what they do at training, they've already proven they aren't capable AFL players in any way, shape or form.

It's great they are training the house down, under no pressure, which they've done for years.  I'm glad they are having a dip, but if they are anywhere near our side this year (unless we have no choice due to injuries) then every single supporter should be worried.  Very worried.

Same goes for Grimes then.

I also recall Terlich was pivotal in a game where we upset the Crows at home. Maybe our coaches have ironed out some of their issues. They will have to prove themselves in the NAB and at Casey but if they are knocking on the door it will be a good thing. Hopefully any game they get will be on merit and not because they are the last standing because of injuries.

I believe we need depth players if we are to become a top 8 side.

No, we need A-graders to become a top 8 side.

Your best players determine your fortunes far more than your also-rans.

Btw, this isn't an argument against depth, more-so a recognition that it's quality players that make the difference in any climb up the ladder.

It is highly unlikely to happen but I'm barracking for both Terlich and M. Jones to show significant development and become top 15 players in a rising Melbourne side this year. Some on here have been particularly unkind about these two. For whatever their failings both are competitors who have played well above the pay scale in the past. It would be nice if they could shut up some of their harsher critics

Be careful what you wish for. If those 2 become top 15, we will be lucky to win a game

It is kinda funny that Terlich having a great game in a match sim can cause a minor freak out. Players can elevate their game at almost any stage of their career. He no doubt knows it's now or never and full credit to him.  If his training and performances warrant selection, he gets selected. It's not a cause for panic or necessarily a sign of the team going backwards.

Agreed, this year I am slightly more upbeat, we have depth finally across all areas, and some real young talent being allowed to develop, whoever is in the 22 each week will be there because they are consistently performing at a very high standard and deserve to be there

It will have to be a massive turn around for Terlich - he was rarely mentioned in the best players for Casey last year, and his match reports were hardly glowing, often criticising his positioning and decision making. Will keep an open mind, hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

He has to perform this year, who knows whether he can crack a spot in the 22, but he is giving it his best shot, which is good on him, interestingly he was very good on Friday, with the main culprit for turnovers being Viney, so you can never tell..........last year because of the mass of injuries we had, he played with a couple of hampering minor injuries, ankle and hand.....he is hard and competitive, and yes some of skill errors in the past have been horrible, but who knows we may have fixed those

I'm not going to do it Saty because I don't really mind but I reckon you said the same thing last year.

Last year McKenzie was very good for Casey week after week and was overlooked while Lumumba was disappointing week after week.  Lumumba wasn't dropped and McKenzie wasn't elevated because the coaches knew that Lumumba had a future and McKenzie didn't (I'm not suggesting one for the other BTW).  The same thing will happen this year I reckon and Jones and Terlich will only get games if things are very bleak as they fit firmly into the McKenzie situation given a normal run of injury.

But we got ravaged by injury las year BB if Kent vandenBerg and Salem had stayed fit hopefully this year we have a better standard of cover

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
