Agree, bur Spencer is unfairly maligned on here, never let the team down when given the opportunity

But if we are going down that path, not sure a VFL ruckman is the  'instant' answer, and there is not much out there, in my opinion

Some have mentioned Minson, he is playing VFL for a reason, we will see how he goes against Pencil and McInerny this weekend

Spencer certainly doesn't let the team down with his effort or agression, however his foot skills and footy smarts do from what I recall watching him at AFL level.  That said, bar the Geelong game (in which he actually looked OK), pretty much every other game he's played in I recall at AFL level, the whole team played like crap and that's always a hard environment to perform in.

I defiantly think he's worth holding on to and thought that the club should have played him a few times this year to help him develop, but also give big Max a bit of a chop out.  I'm a bit concerned that Max is going to get burnt out doing it all on his own, particularly against two genuine ruck types most weeks.  I also don't think it's good to use Jack Watts to relieve in the ruck on a regular basis, although it is useful that he has now developed a bit of a capability there now and perhaps it might help his physicality and combativeness in that regard to jump in there every now and then.

Both garbage posts. 

When you claim to speak for "most" on Land it's not your opinion chap, it's a lie.

But it is my opinion Moonie, if you consider it a lie, that's entirely up to you, think I can live with it.

Could say exactly the same about your epistles, but too polite to do that

In my opinion, Spencer has been in the delist or trade topics for at least the last four years

Wattsy is growing self belief from the ruckwork,  which 2 seasons ago he would have been too timid for.  So he may get sore, but he grows more as a man.

It's not the long term plan I'm sure, but its helping him realise what he can do.

Just out of interest, which players on our list do you think are fairly maligned?

So without being on an AFL list you can't possibly be in a position to judge AFL players.

better let Carlton know they should sack Brendan Bolten.

How about when the opinion of a poster matches that of a commentator/writer with three hundred games of AFL experience?

What a farcical comment. By that logic, if a doctor is responsible for the death of a loved one due to their negligence, you shouldn't be angry because you couldn't have done any better yourself. 

Are chefs the only people allowed to give an opinion on food?

Astrologists the only people allowed to comment on the weather?

Regarding the now deleted comments; playing at AFL level, or even having any talent whatsoever is not a prerequisite for posting football related opinions on Demonland.  

The day it becomes a prerequisite is the day I hand the keys in since I'm in the "none whatsoever" category.

Oscar managed only a 12.8 in the state screening beep test. Even by big man standards that shows he has a lot of work to do on his tank if he gets on an AFL list and wants a game at the highest level.

I don't think that's too bad. He's had what, 1 year at Casey? If he's coming off a low base of professional training that can improve a fair bit

I suspect Oscar is on people's radars at the moment because he did enough in the qualifying and preliminary finals, from seemingly nowhere, to excite a 'who-is-this-guy/where-did-he-come-from' reaction, particularly in the qualifying where everyone looked good. Are any 'landers aware of a bigger picture that warrants interest?

I think he should be in the frame. He was smashed in the VFL GF along with Spencer which looked bad and cooled expectations, but his overall rate of improvement last year was great.  He has a lot of scope for physical development.  We need to draft at least one ruckman.

Given that most turn out to be busts, i wouldn't bat an eyelid if we picked ruckman with all our ND and RD picks

Ah.   That old chestnut. 

I will ask you this.   If you can't  criticise the bad can you appreciate the good? 

And if so how do you know what good is if you aren't permitted to judge the standard if you haven't been on an afl list? 

What do you actually do at the football if you won't allow yourself to judge the merits or otherwise of what occurs in front of you?

It has been suggested to me that 204cm Oscar is likely to be drafted before Melbourne's first pick is called out at 47.

Here's a story in the local news on the young Casey tall - 

Scorpion Oscar McInerney, all 204cm of him, is attracting interest from AFL clubs

Seems we didn't hide him enough. You were meant to distract all the scouts with bacon and egg rolls KC!!!

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
