It's the first time in a long time the Hawks have played US into some form.  No wonder poor old Clarko is [censored]!

After being one of our better players? I don't think so.

Dazzler might have to suffer through the ANB, omac show for another week.

Note to self: desist from predicting players won't be dropped.

Very very glad Keilty retained his spot, hopefully he can get onto the end of a couple of decent kicks this week and showcase his true strength as a Forward. 

How many minutes did Keilty spend forward last week? I was at the game and he seemed to be on the bench or in the middle for a good part of the second half?

Weird selection. 

Jack ain’t a runner and I’m not sure how fit he is. 

NB was ok last week so not sure what the reasoning is. 

Also would have liked Preuss to come into the side if fit. 

How Omac survives is beyond me. 

Agree on ANB as his intensity great last week........Couple of other boys continue to be very very lucky

I’d say it’s becuase Viney is a much better player. ANB was decent last week but has been poor most of the year.

Yeah but NB was starting to hit some form for the first time this season and to drop him now doesn’t make much sense to me.

Another week of hmmmm selections, ANB was far from our worst last week....Wagner or Lewis were more deserving of a run in the VFL

5 score involvements and 3 of those 8 tackles were inside 50.  One of our best pressure / tacklers inside 50 also in general.  Can only think the low effective disposals went against but he was super clean running above AFL average at 75% DE for his 9 effectives and a cheeky snap goal front & square.

Statistically his best game for the year running at 19.5% above his 2018 average output.  He only had 4 matches last season where he scored better and i had him ranked 6th in weighted composites vs the rest of the team last week.

Statistically our best team result for the year also.

Personally could not fault his game myself.  Extremely stiff.  Hope it doesn't throw our inside/outside balance out of wack which IMHO nibbler was a key part of correcting substantially last week.

So we bring Viney back in (who we know is prone to rushing his recall to the seniors) for a bloke who laid tonnes of tackles and applied heaps of pressure last week. Righteo 😱

Jesus.. i watched the replay on Sunday and ANB didn't do anything major to be dropped. And thats saying something coming from me....

Viney of course the [censored] would have said he's right to go when he's probably only 70%.. selfish as usual from Jack.

Fmd I hope this doesn’t bite us on the caboose. 

I suspect he's setting himself up for a big run now when we need him firing to hit the 2nd half running (r8-12) - if we lose these games then get him in for surgery and cherry ripe for 2020. If our season is alive then he'll set himself up for another late run rounds 18-23 after probably being injured r13-17 tbh. Hoping after the bye we can knock down some wins and then make a play for the 8 with him in there... then he rests in bye round.

Only one for me DV and that's the first one you listed.

Would have been better keeping a winning (better balanced inside/outside) team and resting/managing Viney for another week to bring him closer to speed to play the Weagles.

I assume they're doing this (managed) with Pruess for the same reason.

I know he is tall but the highest point is usually rather high. I think you and others mean at his maximum reach. I know I am pedantic but surely we could use the language correctly and not repeat imported idioms like "from the get go"  - "early doors" - "fat side"..............

As long as we are being pedantic, you can be pedantic but you cannot be a pedantic. You are a pedant. sorry annoying post I know...But like you I hate the bs terminology creeping into AFL discussion. Goal Keeper, lace out, etc.

Agree with others that ANB is stiff after well and truly playing his role last week. I have never been massive ANB and Stretch fans, but the balance has been a lot better since they came back in imo.

Also...a great opportunity missed to manage Viney for the Eagles and send a huge message to all in the group that we are back on track and it's now going to be much harder to break into the team if you're omitted (for whatever reason!).  Solid follow up performance against GCS needed from the 22 as well with Viney pushing up.

    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

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan
