In: Vince, Garlett

Out: Stiff player 1, stiff player 2.

Yep, putting the big calls out there today.

Serious answer: early gut feel says rest Oliver, and send Hunt back to Casey.  It makes me squirm omitting Hunt off the back of a seriously solid debut, but I can't mount a case for anyone else.  All our other somewhat marginal players such as Bugg were excellent today.

Appreciated the laugh from the Lumumba droppers though.  I love what he's adding to the side at the moment.

Have to agree with you the Prince has been way better than I expected.

Contrary to some other opinions I think VDB will be coming back via Casey.

His form wasn't great before injury and with the display today from both the Casey players and the seniors he won't just automatically slot back in once he's fit.

Bernie will come back in and I reckon Oliver will be given a week off.

I know Roos doesn't like dropping a debutant after their first game but I think Hunt will be unlucky as Garlett should hopefully be back, but the again Garlett could be another 4 weeks away... who knows!

If it's not broken, don't fix it ... But I can't see Bernie, Jeff or vanders playing at Casey any time soon.

I can - Vanders in the two's , to run him into a bout of form...Bugg definately needs a run into the two's.

Id do the one change with Vince in and Oliver to have a rest.

I have serious man crush for Garlett but i think another week off will do him good. Especially with ankles as they can just stay and niggle with you for a while if you try and play on them. Bit like whats happened  to Vandenberg who has looked so rusty since his ankle injury during the nab cup.

I want Garlett 100% fit.

How are we going to fit Petracca,  AVB,  ANB, and eventually Weeds into this team. 

This is  what success feels like. It's a strange feeling but I can get used to it!

Garlett (if fit) and Vince are certainties to return ....... but no idea who the outs might be!  Our Footy Dept got it spot-on this week, despite the widespread criticism / incredulity around this place.  Very happy to leave it to them again ....... they are far smarter than me!

And what magnificent position to be in

Who ever gets dropped will be unlucky. It is nice to have decent backup players for a change. Getting senior games into the young players is also a good move by the club,not so long ago people wanted Wagner and Frost to be dropped. Great win.

Great to finally have afl quality depth. I'd give tracca another week withe the idea of debut against the saints. This week, Vince in for Oliver . I wouldn't play him at Casey let him have a spell. Name him as first emg. From what I hear Garlett won't be ready. The only possible change could be ANB for hunt and Oscar Mac for Dunn as they will swap quite a bit this season in a handover situation.

I liken our situation with Petracca to kids being given a brand new game console for Christmas, them knowing it but only being able to play it on Christmas day. They all know what it is, they all know how good it is, and they know how much enjoyment it'll give the kids but they're still going to make them wait!

Eight tackles.

He's a beast - even if he's tired he still works so hard.

69% TOG too - only Kennedy played less.  Incidentally, Kennedy had it 22 times on 65% TOG.

I was in favour of giving Oliver a rest, but it would have to be with his feet up.  It would probably be inhumane (to the opposition) to play him in the VFL.

Don't think they should drop him but wish Frost would hang on to those regulation lead-up marks - drives me nuts.

That's all I got - cheers!

Yeh would have to be Vince/Jeffy for Brayshaw/Matty i would think.

Ok ill have a shot

 

In -  Vince, Garlett

Out - Oliver, M Jones

I think this is the most realistic change too, although could be a wet moist night where clearances are key and would love Oliver smashing into the Tigers.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
