Danger game this week... our heads get inflated after a win. Game v Bombers showed not to just "turn up".

ins... Vince and Garlett

out... Hunt and Oliver

Stat over at Demonblog. Of the last 16 times we have gone in as favourites we have won 4. I don't know about you guys but four almost feels too generous

Anyone asking about Brayshaw hit. He got absloutely crunched by a Collingwood players hip unsure which Pie it was but seen it on the replay today sometime In the 3rd QTR, commentators also missed it and was not mentioned when it happened. Watch the replay and you will see it Punt road end.

Cant see too many changes other than Vince straight in, Garlett in if fit.

Cant see them dropping Wagner or Hunt after their performances.

Might be a good chance to rest Oliver, not that he played poorly, but purely to manage the battering he is and will continue to get through the season.

Sadly it may be one of Frost or Pedo that makes way, though neither deserve it.....nobody deserves to be dropped actually, one of the better team efforts in many years.

Had a concussion test at 3/4 time. Looked dazed in the huddle!

Viney's become pretty good at it too. Would love Mr Miyagi to try it on Viney.

One game of the year I miss Frawley

Forget Chip, he's poos and wees now.

Hmm, I worry about TMac getting caught behind too much given the way Riewoldt leads up. Perhaps Wagner can help out, also might cover him when he floats up the ground.

Hunt was okay, he's had a taste,now he needs to go back to Casey and learn how to use the pace he's been blessed with. Vince straight in for him. Not sure who goes out for Garlett? Pedo? Bit harsh on him, but Frost won't be dropped. Petracca maybe in if Brayshaw doesn't come up, or they think Oliver needs a rest.

I believe Melbourne, Richmond and the AFL have come to an agreement for this match. 

Both teams can have an extra 3 players on the bench - at our request. 

Hardwick agreed, as long as he can call the game off early when it's not going well.

Ultimately, our new zonal defence will be fighting Riewoldt, so Tommy won't be battling alone.

It is very difficult to tell when watching the game on TV how well defenders are doing their job. As the TV generally follows the ball, you can't necessarily get a sense of what defenders are doing to prevent their opponents from getting to the ball and how hard they work off the ball. However, what was noticeable about Dunn's game yesterday was the excellence of his kicking. I believe he has completely changed his kicking so that rather than the long but high kicks which covered distance but gave every man and his dog time to get under them, he now delivers more direct, low passes which hit their targets more quickly. Whether it's Dunn alone, or the coaches who have made that change, kudos. It makes Dunn's kicking a much more powerful weapon. (Now it's time for someone to teach that skill to Garland).  

Well doesnt matter who corrected the kicking,it should have happened years ago. Cannot believe the coaches allowed high slow ball kicking at anytime. Made for more presssure so happy it appears to be fixed

He broke the first rule of film by staring straight into the camera. Though I really felt like we connected in that moment.

Yeah watched the replay last night and instantly remembered, im not really sure how i forgot, it happened right infront of us. We were surprised he got up face hit the dirt and looked out of it for a bit, tough little bugger and thats why we love him.

After watching the game again, Bugg's stats flattered him. Very few of his possessions were creative, and his disposal is poor. He does offer defensive pressure, but I think others offer more. Frost had his best game, but still made a lot of errors, and not sure that he's required against the Tigers.

That's the way I saw Bugg's game.  He would have been a walk up start for every game over the last 5 seasons, but now that level of untidiness in disposal won't keep getting you a game.

Agree on Frost too.

You don't get dropped after 29 and 9 tackles in a win....... It's illegal

Outs

Oliver, Bugg, Pederson 

Ins

Vince Garlett (If fit) Petracca

I think this is the best game to unleash TRAC, if we can get the win it will be great for morale and will boost him even more playing in a winning team under lights at the G 

He ran out the game well on the weekend so fitness wise should not be too bad, Put him on a HFF so he can ease into it

 

I understand Bugg was servicable on the weekend, but if we are truly to move up the ladder we need to be ruthless and cannot accept continuous poor disposal

Petracca is only up to 85% game time at VFL level.

He's not ready. Simple as that.

 

This is all talk from the coaches, There are a lot of players who play 85% game time even at AFL level, he is pulling up fine from games so then he will be ready. I understand they want to be cautious but as I said no one plays 100% game time at AFL level or VFL level anyway

85% game time at VFL level is a long way off 85% game time at AFL level.

He's just not ready, and after the selection committee messed up in round 2 we won't be taking chances.

Liking the management of Tracc. Another game or 2 at Casey. Get more gametime into him. Bang down the door harder.

Vince in for Oliver (rest)

If fit, Garlett for Bugg or MJones. As much as those 2 are playing well, Garlett is an upgrade.

Yeah you're right but he played 85% for the first time and with alot of time resting (i know its not a huge rest but not as hard as in the midfield) forward, give him time he will get there. A few more weeks all around 80-90% and he will get his chance. He is a class above already so he will get call up as soon as he is ready.

I also think the percentage of game time can be misleading.

Brayshaw found out ( as did the selectors) that the inability to go flat out for sustained periods whilst you are on the ground will cost the team at AFL level. 

Oliver has had limited time but his time on ground has been at frantic AFL pace.

From reports of last week at Casey even at limited time Petracca was struggling in the last quarter - which means at AFL level he would be shot.

I want Petracca to play as badly as the next (Melbourne) man. There is no knock on his ability, there is confidence in his knee - they just need to be sure that he can go hard the time he is on the ground. There is no substitute for game time in your legs and that is exactly what Petracca is getting at Casey.

Don't mind the Tiges, long suffering supporters like the Dee's who have endured years of despair and disappointment. In more recent years they have had to suffer the ignominy of being called chokers.  Despite my Marxist views, I do see the value of the Indian caste system. It is the glue that keeps Indian society together although increasingly it is being challenged by the evils of capitalism. However, the Dalits or untouchables are a proud caste in their own way. I see the same characteristics of Tiges supporters. They have little hope of achieving Nirvana or even a better life in the next life.  The Melbourne Brahmins just need to watch their step as they walk through Yarra Park particularly around the trees and light towers where Tige supporters tend to urinate and defecate. It's always an idea to have a banana or apple to give them. Having some lose change is also recommended as part of having a charitable disposition. Food is always better than money so that they don't use the change for cigarettes or bourbon and coke.

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comm

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c
