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

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
