O'Mac punched it through... probably the right thing according to the commentators

Omac didn't punch it through. He was flying for the mark but a dark haired casey player punched it through. Can't remember the name.

Spargo no goals and wasted kicking. He has a long way to go.

Unlike him - usually it’s the other way around with very few possessions but good decision making. Probably lacking confidence. Still think he will be ok long term. He needs to develop some upper body strength to be able to stick tackles

Doesn’t sound like the right thing to do given the scores and the time. But sounds very OMac

have doubts on Petty, not sure he is quick enough (pace and decision making)

Maybe Petty is just still thinking his way thru footy... and not yet playing on instinct.  Lets give him time. 

Oscar is the one who needs his finger surgically removed from an orifice...  someone give him a rattle,  so he can move along to its beat.

Sparrows performance was pleasing to read about. Seems to be a likely inclusion for Viney next week.

Was hoping to read a bit about Sparrow’s game in the VFL match report. Nothing on him, not even named in the best.

Saw Sparrow was an emergency for the Richmond game which suggests he’s still in the coach’s mind for a call-up.  Seems a likely inclusion at this point.

Maybe he can be put in the forward line to add a bit of pressure

Yeah- would have to be a half forward role.  

Petracca to the midfield for Viney, Sparrow to half-forward for Petracca.

Kielty WILL play VS Hawks, Mark it down. 

Chance Oscar replaces him but I hope not - think we need potential of someone taking grabs up forward or going back. Could both come in to replace Weid but unlikely. Really need Smith, VB, May, Lever back and I think Baker will play in 2-3. So annoyed we put smith back on field to make groin worse he was PRIMED for marking fwd pressure dual role!!!

Kielty, Sparrow in for Viney & Weideman.

Thats the risk you take.  You dont rush a behind with scores level that late in the game.

Yes you do as it gives you clean possession and the chance to move it 70 metres toward goal with one kick

Preuss will come in for Weid. Keilty has done very little, only 10 touches he doesn't get the ball enough. ANB is injured too isn't he Corey will come in for him.

I would wait on baker. No pre season remember. 

Didn't really look the goods before he was injured..

How the hell could you tell that about bedford yet.

As a junior he didn't get a lot of the ball and was not a goal kicker.

At his size he has to do more than just tackle, run fast...and get a couple of kicks

He's following a similar path to another couple of kids that have been on the list, Dom Barry & Dion Johnstone. They looked ok but couldn't find enough of the ball.

So...just a feeling I have. Hope I'm proved wrong...

On today’s form, Sparrow and Keilty could come in.  Add Preuss back as well. 

Think Viney out injured, with Weideman and Hunt to be likely omissions.

Why are we drafting these types, small forwards who don’t kick goals and don’t have too many tricks, that is X factor?

Did Keilty do enough to put himself in contention? We are in need of a forward who can mark.

    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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
