i agree he was porridge yesterday. Does Weidemann deserve a go?

That's an awful lot of left-fielders to pit against a top four side!

With VInce and Jones back, I wanna see Tracca up forward. He has looked unstoppable there when hes played there.  Hell, he took Michael Hurley to the cleaners when we beat Essendon.

And with Jesse out we need firepower there.

In - Vince. Jones,  Maynard (if he continues his dominant form today at Casey)

Out - Hogan, Trengove, JKH

Weid won't play again this year. Read plappy's latest review.

Out: Hogan, Trenners, JKH

In: Pederson, Vince, Jones.

Trac has to go forward. Would like to see Watts in the ruck again to get some disposals out of him, but I'm afraid Mummy would eat him for breakfast.

Agree. I was really disappointed in his game yesterday. When hogan went out he needed to will us to victory. I have to say though he should have got a free straight in front whwn thompson dropped it. Hopeless umpiring.

Petracca was also poor. 

I reckon maynard will come in and maybe smith

Wouldn't be surprised to see Maynard come in after being promoted this week. 

His latest VFL review was:  "Corey had 30 disposals, including 20 contested possessions, seven clearances and five tackles. I thought he was the most influential player on the ground on Saturday night. In a game that was tough, due to the conditions, it required players to be strong over the ball and really drive through contested situations...Plapp."

Given that North won the clearances, tackles and contested ball in the last quarter we could have done with Maynard in the game rather than as emergency.

Who comes out?  We have a few players who look underdone after injury (Watts, Gawn, and Viney) or carrying an injury (Hannan, Jetta and maybe Hunt who have take a few hard knocks in recent weeks).  Then there are those who had a shocking day yesterday:  ANB, Harmes and maybe others altho I wouldn't automatically drop a player for a bad game when the whole team played badly. 

It may sound sacrilegious to say but Viney may need a rest as he is playing in great pain and was severely hampered yesterday.  We will have Jones back next week, albeit underdone but he will provide a lot of the grunt.  With Maynard in it would help the midfield contested cause.

In summary, Maynard in.  Take your pick as to who comes out.

What if he has a shocker in 2 hours from now?

Hogan & Trenners out for Jones & Vince.

Then it's gotta be Hannan or Harmes out, both have struggled the last few weeks and reward the best form at Casey from (Smith, Wagner, Maynard, Pedersen or Weideman-but he might be another pre season away).

It's easy to get angry, okay really angry after a pitiful last quarter effort, but talking about dropping ANB after one bad day when he has been showing improvement and even JKH whom I'm not a fan, but has been reasonable the last couple is an overreaction. 

This year has been a rollercoaster with so many upsets, to be 10-8 with our injuries to key players is still a good season to date. If we make the eight and could win a final, it will have been a great season.

A few people calling for ANB to be dropped. He definitely had a poor game yesterday but he has played pretty consistently over the past few weeks. I think considering he's in our best 22 and has only missed 4 games this season it seems a bit odd to drop him in the most critical part of the season.

Without Hogan now I would think this would be the best 22 we would want in form for the remainder of the season:

B: Jetta Frost Hibberd

HB: Hunt Omac Salem

C: Tyson Oliver Lewis

HF: Hannan Watts Melksham

F: Garlett Tmac Petracca

Fol: Gawn Viney Jones 

Int: Vince Harmes ANB

If we need the extra tall so Tmac can play deeper fwd obviously Pederson would come in with backup ruck duties where he was successful earlier in the season.

may be tricky, mongrel...

i would expect that hogan, trengove and one of jkh / anb / harmes would go out for pedersen, vince and jones but the other factor is whether hannan is crocked with that elbow, and how much longer we can carry a clearly under-performing watts - i suspect if hannan is passed fit it'll be jkh as anb had a down game but has otherwise had a good season, and harmes offers more than jkh too

hopefully brayshaw has a blinder in the vfl to back up last week's return and is a sneaky chance of coming in too

IN: jones, vince, pedersen
OUT: hogan, hannan, trengove

B: Jetta - Frost - Hibberd
HB: Hunt - O Mac - Lewis
C: Tyson - Jones - Vince
HF: Petracca - T Mac - Melksham
F: Pedersen - Watts - Garlett
Foll: Gawn - Oliver - Viney
I/C: Salem - JKH - ANB - Harmes
Emerg: Trengove - Stretch - Weideman

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
