Changes v Gold Coast Suns

I disagree. Weiderman never looked like trying to take a mark or even attack the football in the last 3 games. Keilty is ready to give it a red hot go. I dont think his efforts turned the game, I do however think the umpires did. He just did slightly more than I expected the Weid to do. I hope Sam W. turns it around but Im down on him ATM.  

I disagree. Clearly you and I were watching different games. Apart from the one ruck clearance, I thought Keilty looked lost. I like his enthusiasm, but that's not what he was picked for.

I too hope he gets another game this week, but Weid has been better this year, though that's not saying much.

If Preuss is fit, I'd play him in his place

You are a bit tough Mr Shadow. Last year and this year we gave the Weid numerous games when he was contributing nine tenths of bugger all but you won't give Keilty a second game!

No changes.

Kielty, Wagner and OMac probably the bottom 3, but all deserve more than a week after only just coming into the team.

Of those who are a chance, I would prefer they play again at Casey for another week e.g. Weid, Preuss

Did you not read the bit where Moon says, ''I too hope he gets another game this week'' ?

Fritsch didn't have his best game but that is the first time he has been below par. He always looks a level above those around him in terms of skill. As for Lewis, Goody has made his feelings on the subject very clear: His value as an organiser is worth the occasional clanger. Until May, Lever and Jetta come back I can't see him being dropped.

Dropping Fritsch from a team with limited skills would be an error at this stage.

It’s difficult to have no changes if Pruess and Viney are available .

Im thinking Wagner and Lewis, which means Kielty or TMac can swing down back, but I don’t think Goody will drop Lewis.

Lewis aint getting dropped..The last 2 weeks we have been so better defensively.. coincidence? im not sure but i think he must organise a pretty limited defense.

For what its worth i believe he is totally done. but i dont think he is getting dropped.

Guys who try hard learn things and improve. Guys who try less enthusiastically generally fail.

Keilty deserves another game or two for adaptive reasons and the improvement of his awarenesses. He has the skills.

Oliver played the least amount of game time, and seemed to be on and off all game. Not sure if that is a fitness issue or a game plan to have him on for bursts more than long stints, but the danger with that is you can get caught on the bench at the wrong time. Maybe it's a way to try and shake any tagging, as they would disrupt their own game plan bringing players on and off for no reason. 

He looked very sluggish during the warm up. Maybe he wasn’t 100%? Not sure if sore or sick but he looked to be hampered.

We finally found some form on saturday or some players found some form.

They say winning form is good form so unless there are any injuries I would not change the 22.

Keilty deserves a second week, there is a considerable difference between the pace of an AFL game and the vfl.

Give him a chance to adapt to the increased speed. 

The main thing I noticed was that we were horrid in the first half with turnover after turnover but we kept at it where as in previous weeks we would have fallen away. 

The second half we still had turnovers but less of them and again kept at it. 

We have to start somewhere and hopefully we continue this week against gold coast.

He is in everything and is nearly always in an advantageous position. Works like a trooper across a game. Incredibly talented clearance specialist. Glad he had a little respite brought about by improved teamwork. He can be overworked.

Also want to get a gauge on how he compares to the Suns young players, at this stage.

Agree, first half was shocking, and interpretation of 50m rule hurt us. At least in the 3rd quarter we had 10-15 minute patch when we almost looked like a decent team.

Hopefully we can build on the good pieces of play from the 2nd half and have a few decent quarters against the Suns.

If Pruess and Viney are fit they will get a game this week. Wagner out and probably Kielty, even though after a long wait don’t mind if he gets a couple on the trot.

Lewis on his last legs.

Good to see Hibberd looking a lot better and TMac showing some signs in the 2nd half. 

Fingers crossed we get on a roll and have a good win against GC,  would generate some confidence and with a couple of other players coming back, you never know when it comes to our Dees!

Just watched the replay after not being able to make Saturday’s game.  O Mac is so out of form and i’d say Saturday is a perfect game for Petty to come in.

If Jeffy is out for a week or two , Id like to see Oliver tried in the forward pocket  for a qtr or so with Pruess or Gawn at Full forward.

Someone said he is getting less game time because of fitness, if correct he is still fantastic at roving packs and it would make him go for his shots more if he is closer to goal. Pruess with Clarry and Hunt in pockets could be workable.

Watching him on Saturday, I think the problem might be his back, rather than his legs. He seems either unwilling or unable to bend over which may explain why he goes to ground so often when there is a ground ball to retrieve. He's still willing to stand his ground in marking contests, knows where to position himself and (most times) kicks with precision, but it's not sustainable to keep him in the side for much longer if he can't pick up the ball from the ground. The time will come for him to retire -possibly quite soon -  and I hope when it comes it is done in a respectful way.

Hoping it’s the corky that was reported on game day. Encouraging second half by Jeffy and one I thought he could build on for the rest of the year.

If he does miss C Wagner seems ahead of Spargo for a recall.

I hope it was a corky too, but he was off the ground a fair bit in the last quarter including the final siren.

Hopefully Edmund has got this one wrong, but the fact he's gone out of his way to report a hamstring injury is not a great sign.

    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

    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.

    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
