Yep, true, got my Kys mixed up with my Shepps. I lived between Barooga and Berrigan in 1981 till 1983, worked for a winery in Echuca financed by a Ky doctor.

Tom Campbell as stated has signed with North and had first training run today...a missed opportunity in my opinion .He has belted Pruess before hand and Scott believes he can play senior footie next season.

The Dogs have gone with fill-in rucks the last few seasons with some cameo's from English who looks a good kid.

If Campbell was so good he would have locked that spot up as his own. He rarely got a look in.

I will admit he's looked good to me at times but for some reason Beveridge doesn't think he's up to it.

I might defer to his better judgement, I might also defer to Taylor and our recruitment team.

I take what Scott says with a grain of salt...

No several others have joined me.....sooner have a ruckman more proven than Pruess on my books.Campbell has killed him in games previously.We will wait and see “What hapopens:” in 2019.but note, all I am crowing about is ....sooner have 3 possible ruckman than 2 .Could have picked up Campbell as a SSP rookie,Campbell is far more proven than Pruess.Campbell had 72 hit outs followed by 60 in the next game ,was an emergency on 3 occasions yet did not get on with Beveridge ,similar to Roughead, Dahlhaus etc..I have trained with the Bulldogs at  Victoria College for years .Campbell was interviewed and tested by Essendon, Adelaide and North and had enquiries ,I believe from Suns, Brisbane and Swans.....therefore genuine interest for many.As stated, I believe he was a classic case for us to bring on Pruess as well as a backstop for Gawn.Also, he played many games last year at Full forward .Therefore, a ruckman/ forward type..Anyhow, we will see whom WINS out, and if indeed I was the only one picking Campbell was, so be it..Drysdale demon...lovely little place Drysdale By the way DD have a look at the Herald sun and AFL .com to see the reports they have had in the last week on him... y the way, he could have gone to Brisbane last year.but stayed and honoured his contract.

Obviously and rightly so, the footy dept. disagree.

Do not discount Preuss - it takes time for rucking to develop, just like it did with Gawny although he was a little quicker than most. There are fairly obvious reasons why Preuss is vital to us; mongrel swing forward with ruck attributes to relieve and eventually carry on the Gawn legacy, and mongrel-like mobility, growing experience plus a penetrating kick and very OK in front of goals from 50m - all packaged in one essential athlete.

Round 12 this year. Dogs v Roos VFL

Hitouts;
Preuss - 36
Roughead - 25
Campbell - 15
Xerri (NM) - 9

Disposals
Preuss - 15
Roughead - 24
Campbell - 14
Xerri - 10

Looks to me like Preuss was probably the best tap ruckman of the group, but Roughead the best around the ground. 1 goal for Campbell forward. In terms of instant back up Roughead was probably the best of that lot, the Pies moved to get him.

Preuss is 23, Campbell is 27. That's really what a lot of it comes down to. Preuss is yet to enter his prime. Campbell might lose athleticism quickly, some big guys do and then they start to struggle.

Yes, I see the point about having 3 rucks, but unless we are planning to play 2 at AFL level - and I don't think we are - then we've got a 3rd guy sitting in the VFL getting in the way of development and team structure. Austin Bradtke can do 5-10 minutes a quarter in the ruck and 5 minutes forward and develop at Casey, whilst the forward line stays open for Tim Smith and (at this stage) Keilty to get some space as tall forwards.

With the new pre season and mid season rookie spots we can add a 3rd ruck if needed during the year. They might not be as good as Tom Campbell but we'll have all the state leagues to pick from if need be.

Fair points you make, however, it was my understanding English played in that match and Tom played basically full forward which is not his rightful position.As Roughhead was interviewed by the Dees , I am told, Campbell would have been either a good backup to Max, a great development for Pruess whilst at least 9ne of these most probably playing at Casey developing Bratke.

This did not happen so, we will await the season to see how these players have gone.

Hang on.. you said Campbell beat Pruess outright in the ruck, and yet you were proven wrong..

You should stop while you are ahead.

Please note that is over the last 3 years not one game and Campbell was voted 2nd best for Bulldogs in that DeeSpenser report.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    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.

    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
