I worry about Spargo after that game and it sucks for him. He does everything right, for a player about a foot taller.

let's be honest...there's not much at Casey.

Lewis and May back raise the question of who goes out.

Could Keilty get a game in place of Hoare?

Forecast for next Saturday is a maximum of 16....much better for us I hope !!

Preuss should have been played today if he was any good. Geelong are light on in the ruck department so Gawn should be sufficient.

Spargo has good footy smarts and I thought he tried today and did some good things. 

As usual, when the whole team Plays poorly, it’s easy to signal out individuals but  Spargo was okay for mine. Just needs to remain in the game at times.

Tried to impact the game with numerous tackles but ball carrier still easily able to offload.

Cant fault his endeavour.

Drop: Weid

never ever play Petracca in the centre when  Weid is ruck.

Neither can play that role. They are both talented but hopeless.

I don't want to see Frost in the Seniors again. Salem can hold his head high, the rest were generally average/poor today. On field Leadership non existent. Jones was awful. Same one dimensional "bomb it long to a contest" game plan, with no evidence of Plan B. Out coached.

Both didn't have great days at all today, but you can't say they're hopeless.

Spargo was bordering on pathetic. As was Frost, Oscar and Hore. But the problem was the performance of the leaders Viney, Jones, TMac and Gawn.

May and possibly Lewis come in but it's going to be much the same next week.

Get rid of Oscar and Frost. They were both diabolical! May and Petty/Keilty comes in. Both of them are just plain shithouse and add nothing to side.

Hore is meh.

Jones won’t chase and incredibly casual dropped simple mark, when mark and captains goal may have kept us in it.

May, Preuss for Frost, Wagner

Lewis will be standard 21 Day hamstring recovery 

Disappointing if so.

He's made for a16 degree game at Kardinia Park

KK could be an inclusion if he gets through the Casey practice game

Sorry, that may have read wrong. I agreed with what you wrote. I didn’t mean to imply you thought that, it was simply an extension of the narrative. Right spot, right time but struggles to influence.

Too many errors from Spargo, agree with you re the leaders, also why didn't anyone return fire with the aggression ?

May & Lever cant come in quick enough! Will change the whole dynamic / structure of our play. 

Backline was an absolute mess today. Salem the only winner down back... could argue our only winner for the day. He was fantastic.

Any or all of Hore, Frost, O. McDonald and Spargo to come out.

Sparrow and Wagner did enough.

No idea who comes in at this point besides May.

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re
