ANB ruled out for Saturday. Anyone hear that Hore calf might prevent him from playing on the weekend?

Good to see everyone in the media is trying to fire up Walker to have a big game! [censored]

I was thinking the same thing. Bet you he smashes someone from the first bounce and plays a massive game.

Based on Smiley’s injury report:

In - Salem, JFK, Weideman

out- Spargo, C Wagner, T Smith

Meanwhile Adelaide probably get back Lynch, M Crouch, Gibbs, and a rejuvenated Jenkins in the one week - aces...

JFK probably still suffering some concussion issues from the head injury. Best to wait a week for him.

A bit stiff. Video inclusive. I'm not convinced LHO actually did it.

Heard a rumour the coach directed players to target JHK.

This has been one of the more challenging weeks to pick the changes with all the almost, kind-of, not quite ready players returning/not returning from injury. I suppose with Lever and ANB both officially ruled out I guess that shortens the list a little

Petty (form or knee inj take your pick) seems likely to go and one of Spargo/CWag. Then I suppose the next few on the list would be Garlett, Stretch and Lockhart (who also had his knee heavily strapped on Sunday). Hore hopefully gets up. I suspect he'll be picked but might be on late out watch.

As for the ins, Salem and Hibbard are most likely ins. Not sure if JKH and Hannan both need another run at Casey. But if they're ready then they'll both be real chances too.

Walker is and always has been an average footballer. I’d be more worried about Tom Lynch he is a gun!

The MRO was a lot tougher in those days, too. Jack Ruby made sure his decision couldn't be appealed.

Seems like Hibberd and Salem are fit and ready to go.

Does a Pruess/Weideman also come into consideration? I feel like we are at a point now where i think we need to start getting games into these two.

Adelaide have a tall back line in Keath, Hartigan and Talia. I would try and go match for match and be accountable for Keath who has played as that 3rd tall intercept marking role.

Four match winners.

As much as I am not a fan of JKH I think he comes back after a good return game last week. He is a better option than C.Wagner.

Weideman returns for T.Smith. 

Petty looked sore last week so he makes way. 

Lockhart also looked sore if not rested then Fritsch can go, had enough of him. 

IN: JKH, Salem, Hibberd, Weideman

OUT: C.Wagner, Petty, T.Smith, Lockhart/Fritsch 

Can not wait till sub par VFL footballers are no longer making up the numbers.

C.Wagner

J. Wagner 

Lockhart

T.Smith

Stretch

Spargo

Fritsch is borderline.

There in lines one of the main problems at the moment.

Talia will struggle on Preuss, he is too big for him.

Bit of a silly statement there. We overrate Pruess on here too much.

Talia is a dual All Australian full back and the other is a VFL ruckman/forward. Talia has way enough experience playing on the monster forwards.

Exactly.

I wonder how Richmond or Collingwood would go if they had to replace their 6-7 injured players with the above lot. They are simply not good players at all.

The last time we played Adelaide in Darwin (2017), Tom Lynch killed us. I recall he had some respiratory disease but he breathed back to life against us and had a night out.

I actually thought this game was going to be in Alice like last time; at least we belted them there.

Mitch Hannan, underrated “spark” player for Demons, also on board for trip to Top End, finally injury free. First AFL game of year looming.

This has my attention too. I've been hearing allot about this guy for the last 18 months but in the guys games at AFL level I haven't seen much to excite. Hore and Baker have both come in and shown enough to suggest they could become regulars. Pettys still young and I haven't given up on him, but he still looks a long way off AFL level.

 

How many games has Petty played? Three? Yet you dills give up on him. What did Tom McD look like after 3?

its the same really with Kielty. Has hardly played. You give guys like this a decent go before you write them off. Don't  You?

J Wagner and Fritsch are decent AFL players. Fritsch is a genuine forward having to play back because of injuries

I remember and was hoping Lynch would miss this game.

According to Adelaide's Bigfooty board, Lynch and M Crouch trained really well today and will likely play - because of course it's 2019, and this year sucks!

    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

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores.

    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

    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
