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.

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air. A Magpie win against the Demons wo

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
