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.

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
