Spargo playing maybe his 15th game. I think he has had a great first season, and while he wasn't brilliant today, he wasn't disgraced. Think you're being a little harsh.

A lot of Tyson's touches today were very effective.  He played a very good game despite a couple of stereotypical Dom floaters.

Spargo was very ordinary and should not be in the side.

A lot of us said he needed the rest and JKH should have played instead.

They ran the ball out of our forward line without any pressure and that was his role and ANB's.

Spargo as I said before will be a good player for us.

As for ANB he is a game killer for us. His turnovers and fumbles are so momentum shifting.

I don't know about his grunt work I hardly saw him lay a tackle, or get close to an opponent, except when he had the ball and then turned it over.

Anyway well done guys you deserve your finals chance after a very good year.

Win next week and we get the chance to pay back the Cats on the G.

JKH should never play a game again list clogger I'd take Spargo any day of the week over him. Spargo wasn't too bad.

Your sizeism is tiring, Bugg was at Casey and poor, Spargo was in Perth

He was poor today plain and simple did not mater how tall he is. I said nothing about his height.

the simple fact is he did pull his wait.

First year player who is clearly showing the signs of having played too many games. Badly in need of a rest.

I thought all 22 did well.

Tyson was good, so I'll put that down to the usual tiresome sledging he cops.

Spargo wasn't bad, but wasn't good either. His spot could be up for grabs going into finals if the likes of Garlett really get going again, but I'm beginning to lose faith that could happen.

Hogan - Was not missed

Petracca - Went missing late

Spargo - Not AFL standard (yet)

Melbourne - Speed achilles heel

Kent - Bad and good

Frost - Makes us better

West Coast - Few keys out

Weed - Break-out game

Salem - Rarely wastes it

Hibberd - Most important defender

TMac - Goody used wisely

Jetta/Clarry/TMAC/Gawn/Brayshaw - Need a paragraph

Tyson - Joe Boy Correct

 

 

I have never knocked Tyson for memory, but today he frustrated me a little.  Running into traffic for a hand-ball receive.......is obviously slow and takes on the tackler too much, yet has difficulty breaking a tackle.

I'm with Joeboy.  Today's game was nothing to write home about for Dom.

 

BTW, I aint a Tyson-hater.

 

How the hell did Frost stay at Casey for most of the year, and why did we sell the farm for Lever?

I though spargo lost us the game last week against the Swans and almost this week through his inexperience. This can’t happen in finals. For me, Jesse Garret needs to come in for him.

He needs to get fitter, needs to streamline his body, more muscle, he’s an 18 year old kid and will be a good midfielder in future

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s

    MUD HEAP by KC from Casey

    In the opening round of the 2018 VFL season, the Casey Demons enjoyed an emphatic 107 point victory over Coburg at Piranha Park. The team was loaded with Melbourne listed players (half a dozen of them were in the team that beat Fremantle on Saturday) and the side was in its way to a grand final appearance. A season and a half later, the club returned to the same venue in the hope of kick starting a season that had gone somewhat awry under new coach Sam Radford and while they tasted victory (as y

    PRETENDERS SENT PACKING by George on the Outer

    Fremantle, the Perth pretenders at sixth on the premiership table should have easily accounted for the Demons, sitting barely a game off the bottom of the ladder.   And for the majority of the game, it certainly looked that would be the case, until the final quarter, when the Demons stopped giving the Dockers easy chances, or making plain, dumb decisions. Not that their situation was helped by some simply appalling umpiring during the match, that kept gifting Fremantle easy scores.  Th
