PREGAME: Rd 12 vs Collingwood

Recommended Posts

Apparently we held two players over for tomorrow -- Stretch and Josh Wagner.  Hope it doesn't mean either Lever or Hore as late outs!

Just saw there is a fair chance Oliver wont play tomorrow. Billy Stretch was pulled out of todays game 2 hour prior.

That’s a great swap, like for like ??

Another master stroke from the selection committee. 

Is Preuss still playing for us????

Shows what you know.

Srsly though, how is a 19 year-old who made his professional debut last year (and has thus far failed to set the game alight in any tangible sense) considered a leader? I’d love to see him grow as a player (at our club) but how does a word like that get bandied about in this instance?

Clarryy Choo Choo to be a late OUT! I Reckon!?

Of course he is. Goes with the season. We have had a late out the last few games to go with our long list of injuries and always good players.

Meanwhile other sides we play have close to their best side in and then the week later lose key players. This week Lynch out for the Crows and Hurn and Yeo for the Eagles.

Clayton Oliver leaves track early... ??

Clarry is a machine I don't think he will miss. However I believe that Lever is the one that might be the out only because of playing a half of football for Casey and doing his ankle missing the week after and then being selected to play Queens Birthday.  Training or no training it doesn't sit well with me.

Half a game of football in 12 months after a knee reco?  IMO not enough game time No game fitness in a blockbuster a recipe for disaster. I hope not.  Genuinely hope I am wrong.

Just down at Rye for the weekend and every second car in a very busy car park at woolies has demons member 2019 stickers on the back. Don’t think we we have many at the game come Monday ?

PS no snow here so not sure what we’re all going to do for the weekend? Drink?

I played for the Rye Demons in the seventies

The. coach then was Danny Jennings son of the President 

Danny played at Melbourne under Norm Smith

Only about 7 games but a reserves 

Best and a Fairest 

So lots of Melbourne Supporters lived in Rye back then

The Mornington Peninsula was a key and designated recruitment zone for the Dees, for years. The Healy boys came from that league near the end on that allocation. Footy at Chelsea was hard, skilled and tough - dreaded playing down there across a 2-year period as the 'visitors'.

Why do some posters call Oliver Clarry Choo Choo? 

Perhaps there is some clever or witty reasoning behind it?

Only one poster calls him that and there is zero wit or reasoning  behind it.

Spargo is fine. Has earned his place, certainly in relation to the other small forwards down there. Not to mention, not sure who he's keeping out ... Bedford?

Team looks solid, just missing Melksham and Jetta for mine, Vandenberg would be handy as well.

Spargo needs to get more possessions, but typically uses the ball very well when he gets it. Is probably low on confidence, like a lot of the team this season!

Team looks a lot better this week, agree adding in Jetta & Melksham would be ideal.

Should put in a solid effort against the Pies, pity we blew last weeks match.

It’s only picket fence, and it’s because he (picket fence) is a madman.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
