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.

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.

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

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

... 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

In: Salem, Neal-Bullen

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.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
