CHANGES: Rd 14 vs Fremantle

Recommended Posts

If Lever is out then Petty comes in for me. Time to start getting some games and development into him.

Watched him play against Collingwood VFL game and his intercept marking and ability to provide drive from defensive 50 was fantastic.

Frequently dropping it too. Has Bull ever worn a glove? Might seem like an obvious and dumb idea, but.. just maybe it could give him a little edge in "catching" them like McGovern does with his sticky hands. Borrow Jayden's, he surely doesn't need em!

Simple solution, used by Sean Wight, Yze, et al; could make a big difference to him at the instance of the big grab.

I'd like to see tsmith play on Ryan, while still going for the ball. He's been there best intercept player so stopping him is a must

I'd like to see both TSmith and JSmith in the same team on game day, for that matter. It would have strengthened our Team, all year. Shame about the reality of circumstances....

That's what I'd do. Freo spread like crazy. Getting as many runners through the midfield and wings will be vital to stop their run. So even though he's a limited player Stretch comes back in to run with Langdon or Hill. 

Time to give Jones a good run at half back to see if he can reinvent himself. Time to give Smith a fair go at it as the 3rd tall forward to see if that frees up Tom and Sam as it did for parts of the game against the Crows in Darwin. Petracca should get some midfield time as well.

I'm not sure whether I agree or disagree, but I do like the way you've explained your changes.

Why the [censored] did they rush him? I just can’t with this club’s injury management. 

I commented on this 3 weeks ago Jaded about the Lever & May inclusions, especially with limited game time at Casey (Lever 2 quarters & May 4 quarters for Casey). Makes no sense whatsoever & shows total disregard for player welfare & care . I know the players just want to play, but really, we are no chance to play finals & achieves nothing! I would have thought that the coaching & medical staff would have learnt from the Viney experience ......

Dumb....

I keep saying it and i hark back to a thread i started "Professionals" - this club is so far off the pace when it comes to these sorts of things. It really does my head in. 

Changes should be:

IN: Smith / Lockhart / Lewis

Out: Wagner, Spargo, Lever (inj.)

  In Lewis.....Out J Wagner.......I hope Lever is right to play........  If not bring in Pruess and send TMac to the back          line..............In ANB........Forward pressure.....Out.....Spargo  for reservicing.

 

Tim Smith a chance........ Sorry to say that Garlett is on his last legs.

Lewis in? Are you serious?

Brad Hill, Stephen Hill,  Fyfe, Walters,  A Brayshaw, B Matera, Wilson.......good luck keeping up with these blokes!

ANB in and tell him to stick on Wilson all day. Pressure him so those Rebound 50s are uncomfortable all day. Can’t afford their gun players to create havoc once the ball is cleared from our forays forward.

May on Hogan would be a disaster, Jesse is an aerobic animal (despite also being  a party animal), he will take May up and down the field constantly and soon blow him up. Freo have far too much run, pace and are frankly a far better team than us this season can't see how we wont get hammered....

You might not like the pick and is a fringe now and certainly in his last season and he knows that. HOWEVER! IMO he still offers experience ,is injury free ,had his Casey games and his last game there was clean and direct with hand and foot. If he is picked then he has earned it not given.  LG we can still make the 8 so why not keep pursuing until mathematically we cannot. You have to keep the faith and l am sure others agree.

Your right, we are all trying to stay positive N but we have been poorly coached IMO, with a total lack of team balance whilst also playing unfit, out of form & injured players all year.

I don't like the pick & it stinks.....Earned his spot? One good game in the 2's? Getting suspended again & showing a total lack of discipline & team first habits.......

I do respect your thoughts, however, If you think he is the answer, then we are in more [censored] than we think.

Lever is knee soreness rather than the reported foot soreness. Hopefully not more than a week or 2 to settle down.

The loss of Lever is a serious setback, but his absence does not mean we have to pick a third tall, although Petty will be considered.

Lockhart will be a definite in and I'd hope ANB and JKH are brought back in to try and counter Freo's run a pace.

And as stated in my mid-year rankings, I'd be punishing Olly for playing safe and playing him at full-forward.

As with others, Wags, Jeffy and Spargo are first out . I'd have Salem on Walters, Hibberd on Fyfe to free up Harmes and Jones on Matera.

T.Mac should be rested until he is back to full speed fitness level and his omission leaves room for T.Smith and Preuss.

B: Salem  May Hore

HB: Jones Frost Fritsch

C Baker Brayshaw JKH

HF: Petracca T.Smith Hannan

F: Lockhart Olly Weid

Ru: Gawn Hibberd (Fyfe) Viney

Int: Harmes, ANB, Preuss, Hunt

Dunkley would have to be a chance after his great game.  Might need some more VFL time though.

Reckon you're on the money here DD36.

Petty for Lever (inj) and Lewis for Hibberd (inj) seem likely changes pending accuracy of rumours going around.

    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?

    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

    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
