CHANGES: Rd 11 vs Adelaide

Recommended Posts

It's probably too early to get this thread going but whatever.

In an ideal world, we'd get back Salem and maybe Hannan too. 

I'd be looking for replacements for Petty, Spargo, C Wagner and T Smith.

So maybe that's Salem, Hannan, Weideman and ANB?

Was there and stayed till the end. The season is a shambles and is over. I think a couple of high profile players need to be dropped as a statement if nothing else. Gus and TMac come to mind. Work out which of the young ones have the right attitude and stick with them. Thankyou.

Probably too soon for Hannan, though given what we've currently got on the park ...

Ins from Hibberd,  Salem,  Neal-Bullen,  Weideman, Lewis.

 

Too soon IMO :

Lever,

Hannan

May

Kolodjashnij

Kennedy-Harris

 

I think these guys need more game time in their bodies,  before selection in our AFL jumper.

Out - Spargo, C. Wagner, Smith, OMac, J. Wagner

In - Salem, ANB, Weideman, Lever, Hibberd

I don’t know if those ins are possible, but that is 5 clear upgrades and makes us at least competitive.

Ins: Lewis, Salem, Hibberd, JKH, Weids, ANB

Outs:  J Wagner, C Wagner, Fritsch, Spargo, Stretch, TMac (even if just a rest, he's spent)

Tim Smith should stay in, only one remotely looking like key forward today

A few others looked sore... Petty was limping a bit

For goodness sake anyone but Lewis, the game has passed him by. Ideally he’d retire from AFL now (give us another pick in the mid season draft) and play out the VFL season as an on field coach.

... time to re-start this teams evolution.

Theory is,  not to go in too tall,  up in Darwin.

For my mind it’s simple now, season is done, so make sure we are best prepared for next year:

- Don't play anyone unless 100% fit, healthy and with appropriate game time at VFL level under the belt

- Play everyone who needs to build experience and game time at senior level with a focus on learning and development. Play a really simple game plan that encourages them to use their natural instincts

- Make sure anyone who will need surgery prior to preseason has it done ASAP so that they can actually do a pre-season

- Start the search for new line coaches, fitness coach, kicking coach ASAP and get them on board immediately to maximize time to gel with the group prior to next year

- Cop the AFL fine for not tanking with good grace and move on

Out: Spargo, C.Wagner

Surely none of Lever (supposedly injured at Casey today), Hibberd or Hannan are ready yet. 

Fritsch goes as well if we want to play Preuss.

Weideman was very good at Casey, Lewis was our best... Surely they get picked after the complete Sh!tshow that was presented today

JKH is a shoe in for next week barring injuries. Thought l would let you know early.

Oh! the rest of the above look good as well.

You could make the case for some big changes if the injuries come up:

Weiderman, Salem, ANB, Lewis, May, Hibbard, Hannan. Goody also mentioned KK and JKH. 

The only time you make 4+ changes are when you have a heap of players who are best 22 coming back. We could make the case that 7 changes are just getting our healthy bodies back and Wagers, Lockhart, Petty etc are just heading back to the 2s.

(Jake) Lever, (Mitch) Hannan, (Michael) Hibberd, (Christian) Salem, (Alex) Neal-Bullen, (Steven) May, (Kade) Kolodjashnij, (Sam) Weideman and (Jay) Kennedy Harris 

All to come back. 

Hibberd, Salem, ANB, Kade and Weeds were all in the side when we were arguably playing our worst footy for the hear.

Hannah helps, Lever is obviously a huge inclusion, JKH is okay I guess.

We have huge depth issues.

    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

    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
