jay Kennedy Harris 

billy stretch 

Christian Salem

T Mac !

the guys has played two bad games in his career at the MFC. 

Have you forgotten the 5 goal winning game  against the Eagles a few short weeks ago?

Trade tmcd ??  Sure he fumbles, makes bad decisions and creates turnovers. But that was half the team based on last week. He is a big strong back needed to match up on opposing big Fwds. Just needs to be smart. 

Trade sam Weideman??? Wtf?? He is developing nicely and next year will be a key to our growth into a top 4 team. Needs a summer in the gym. Compliments Hogan.  He will click and watch out !!

Delist them all then make them fight to the death for a spot back on the list. It's the only way, I've thought long and hard about this. 

Maintain that rage!

How is he developing nicely?

Curnow and Hipwood are developing nicely. Weideman has shown little to get excited about.

The gym is always a cop out for a reason. Hipwood is much skinnier.

I am still as grumpy as a Scot at a charity donation, but I can't believe some of the stuff being proposed on this thread. 

Hulett, Trengove, Kennedy and White look the closest to being delisted. Apart from them, even as bad as missing finals is, it would be a total waste of the Roos era to start swinging the hatchet anywhere it can strike blood. Our list doesn't need some wild, unfocused slashing - it needs a surgeons precision to help a very talented list improve.

Possible to trade - IF we can improve our list:

1) Frost or TMac as much as I don't want to lose either of them. Might get us a Lever type defender.

2) Salem or Tyson if we can use them in conjunction with other draft numbers/current players  to recuit an A grade midfielder. Probably not possible, they are probably not enough currency to get what we want.

Garland might move on to coaching, and Spencer will get a gig somewhere else.

With some recent rookie elevations,  I actually can't see too much more movement than this, so no more than 6 list changes.

How much do you expect from a tall coming into a system after playing next to no footy in his draft year? When drafted if they said he might get a taste in his first year then play 5 - 10 games in year 2, we all would have thought that was fine, at last we aren't rushing guys in before they are ready and developing them properly.

Hipwood had to be played as they had nothing else up there, plus he seems to have a bigger tank already, Curnow came in as a smaller ready to go player. If you want to compare look at the pick straight after Weid, Harry McKay, he came into the draft with pretty big wraps and has only played the 2 games and was very very ordinary in them.

In your Opinion

A problem with the stat quoted is it only looks at one end...i.e the disposal..the qualifier imho..is effect

Now ol' Christian was far from alone in kicking it to the opposition, or a poorly thought and optioned contest..or the wrong side of a contest or to the middle of f'n nowhere..He wasn't alone in doing any of those things..I sometimes wonder if we don't have training drills in this because we've bloody brilliant at it

Im not sure how far the knife will be plunged come circus time.

The obvious..Harry Who...lamentably also JT :(  Such a valiant effort.  If only some of our lot had his heart, his dedication, work ethic etc

Im not sure what Wagner offers really going forward so for mine his MFC must be iffy.

I think it's sayonara Ben. Hes been there-abouts but ...just don't think hes what we really need at the top paddock.

Hullett and White must be looking over their shoulders. Kent a major disappointment; just doesnt seem to really want it badly enough...sort of sums up the team really.

Garlo...maybe he has the year as depth  and numbers at Casey. Harris is a poor mans..'any number of names'   Dead lucky hes got paperwork in my view.

Stretch might be on a list alongside Frosty as bargaining chips. Kent might be on it to come to think of it.

I reckon Vince will get ONE more year.that'd be it. He might wax between Casey and Dees though

Jake will test the waters but unsure who'd offer him the #1 gig so might stay

 

I think in the end we'll only change the list by 6-7 players .  Now next year..!!

No way that will happen now, did you read the team review for round 23?

Watts received an apology cause he could've gained a vote.

He was good in the last game but was horrible in his 3 games b4 that.

I hope he goes and plays well somewhere else .......best of luck to him. 

He had a great year last year but he fell away at the end of this one. 

Hes a seasoned player and needs to show leadership. He didnt and If we can get someone who can in his place we should.

I seriously reckon Watts was one of a handful playing with restrictive post injury  bodies.

That game against GWS when he took 2 shots on goal from outside 50 only taking 2 or 3 steps showed how little confidence he had in his hammy. I thought we'd be better at injury management this year, but we got it wrong with Watts, then everyone slams him for it.

All well and good to bring up McKay, but I don't rate him and think he will be a bust as well. I was responding to a poster who said he was developing nicely. I don't think anyone thinks McKay is developing nicely.

Curnow and Weideman played the same amount of footy in the two years prior to the draft. 

Hipwood played because there is no one else? That makes it more impressive, we gifted Weideman games this year and he didn't produce. 

I expect him to show qualities that will make a good AFL player, I have not seen these. Some believe they have but I doubt the same people would be saying they have if he was drafted at pick 66.

There were times you could see him struggling with running..I doubt it was for the want of going. I think he started to come good only in the last two games tttt

Watts should go. I'm just sick of his bruise free footy.

- Stretch will stay on. I don't rate him because his foot skills are poor but he's still young.

- Kent: dogged by injuries, when he is on he plays great footy. I'd definitely keep him.

- trengove: muat and will go. too slow

-  would love to see oscar go but obviously the club loves him. At the very best he develops into his brother who drives me up the wall with his decision making and poor skills

- garland has to stay. at least it will send oscar back to casey.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
