No. Stand by means wait.

Story should be rolling out soon that Caracalla mentioned dusty is out on sen.

I didn't hear the interview but others have said that he didn't sound overly confident but never mentioned he was actually out.

I reckon Richmond will roll the dice and play him.

I'm sort of thinking they'll err towards miles playing seeing as he went ok in the Vfl... but if you're right it begs the question... which would demonlanders prefer? Dusty underdone, or miles? Not a simple one.

What's that?  5 posts to make the same point?  You start off 'worried' and now you are 'honest'...

Spencer is not Gawn.  Nankervis is NOT Sandilands.

Nankervis is an OK ruckman, Spencer at least that, if not more.  Give him a chance.

for a long time lurker and a short time troller, you are off to a solid start

Tough one. Think I would rather Miles. Dusty's strength up forward in the wet could be crucial if he plays mostly there. 

 

I could see him kicking 3-4 whereas Miles won't have the same impact

I tend to agree. I do like Miles as a player though, and he takes away some of our in and under dominance.

Unfortunately true.

Sun shines out of the entire club and all our players according to some here

No there's a difference between looking at the club critically and just coming on here to stir up BS. 3 new accounts in a couple of days, let's see how long you all stick around for after Mondays game.

Dusty underdone is still dangerous. I think he's turned a corner as a player and might lack explosiveness but he's strong in the air so Hardwick might put him forward. He's a danger regardless.

He is not the greatest but as ruckman go he is no spud either. Nankervis is hardly worthy of a permanent hard tag.  Just needs a solid ruckman to compete against him and neutralise (or win) as many contests as possible and compete with him in the air in marking contests. Although it would be helpful, you don't always need a superstar ruckman to win matches of footy as long as they can break even most of the time in the one on one contests. Anything more (goals, goal assists, tackles, hitting up leads etc) is a big bonus

Imagine the team meeting with Goody telling the players we're going to tag Nankervis. 

Jones and Viney would gently escort him from the premises while some rookies clear out his office.

Will see what happens Monday and I hope jake plays well bit o think it is a huge danger area

Their midfield are still hard ball winners, which I think we trump them in even with Dusty there. Prestia adds some grunt but Caddy is a spud. If we were playing GWS with the same ruck setup I'd be worried, but, as we knew with Spencer, our mids simply need to go up a notch to win around the stoppages.  Best Spencer can do is contest and bring the ball down into a 50/50, which is what he did against Freo for the whole game. Our mids let us down in that situation. A lot of people overlooking the performance by Spencer so as long as he brings that and our mids perform we're okay.

It's one of their improved areas. But tagging a ruckman isn't a thing. Even if it was a thing, Nankervis is hardly Polly Farmer or Max Gawn.

I still don't get it suggesting Pedo as second ruck,he is only 193 cm tall. Those who have once again mooted this idea,please explain?  Apart from Oliver we don't have anyone with the "it" factor.

So a large number of people attacked me for my opinion but big Nank was best on ground and the reason they won 

No mention of Spencer getting hurt? That's two dodgy posts now Jayd.

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error. The pleasing thi

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt
