Kangaroo hide? Really?

According to Sherrin "It is made from Australian top-grade cowhide leather".

I am old school. And possibly out of date, or maybe it's that kanga brand that fooled me. But it's not bloody pig skin. I'll cop Mason Cox but not Americanisms.

I am heading up to Brissy for our next match and need to book tickets, does anyone know which stands the MFC people inhabit? I only know the Vulture Street end from listening to test cricket matches! 

Ring the Club Membership Dept. There are often 2 or 3 areas in the ground that visiting fans sit.

Mostly it is at the Vulture St end ground level or in the top section at that end of the ground.

Rotate Lewis through the midfield giving others a chance to rest forward. 4 Premierships playing as a midfielder is the clue to where he plays best and evidenced by his performance at Casey last game.

The track maybe a bit slow in Brisbane.  It has been raining quite hard throughout the night and this morning with more predicted over the next few days.  That should suit Lewis.

It's been non stop in the Northern Rivers. I wish it would stop. Tanks full, #kthxbye

Out:

Wagner is depth so he will miss out.

Either ANB or Hannan will likely miss also as neither did much.

In:

Hibberd and Lewis.

Think Lever has had enough niggles post returning from knee surgery, to suggest he just needs to have a couple of injury free weeks on track and return without worrying about re-injuring something so he can focus on getting the footy

Pity about Lever's absence. I was interested to see how he fitted in with Hore playing more or less of his intercept marking role.

Time to get some stability into this team but it seems that each week brings a fresh (or extension) injury.

Give's Petty some exposure in the meantime. Big three weeks for him.

On his SEN interview this morning Goodwin said Dunkley isn't far off selection. 

Could it be this week?  Of last weeks 22, ANB and Hannan are at risk.  Hannan likely to get more time to find form, having had a long lay off so ANB to miss out when Dunkley comes in.

Hibberd ready to come back so should replace Wagner this week.

Sunday to be 25 degrees and sunny. Gabba track will be fast as it drains well. Will be there with kids  & grand kids

With most posters here. Hibberd for Wagner the main change and if Lewis gets a run then for ANB or Hannan and Lewis to rotate through midfield using his excellent kicking into I hope leading forwards.

Thanks for the weather update Docs, 25 is not too bad for footy. Dry conditions should suit us. Here's hoping.

ANB just returned from injury as well, and I thought he did what he's there for, run, chase, pressure and tackle. Hannan was down, but not sure that Dunkley is a direct replacement for what Hannan brings. I think they'll end up giving Dunkley another game or 2 at Casey before he gets a call up, but might have talked him up to keep his spirits nice and high. 

I'd like them to play Fritsch forward, along with ANB, Hannan and Lockhart and try and go back to a real mobile forward line, with the talls all mobile as well.

The only change for mine would be Hibberd for Wagner, with Hore to try and play in front of Cameron and cut off any chances he gets.

Would like to see frost on Cameron and bury him in a few tackles.

Get May to line him up like the Walters tackle in the first on Saturday, might have cost a free kick but I reckon it got under his skin for the rest of the game. Not sure Cameron would bite back as much, but would hopefully make him watch his steps.

Grossly overdue. Space-man on the fwd line. The person we need down there as an alternative lead and feed, even though the bombing to the goalsquare still occurs. His leads would make a few midfielders look before a statistic is accrued. Hell, an effective delivery is a better statistic than either 'metres gained' or 'ineffective delivery'. Fritta's second best skill is marking. Then come shots at goal; where he plays at the moment, both are taken from him and the game plan.

Having just watched the replay, I was pleasantly surprised at how much ANB contributed. At the game I don't notice how much he actually did, not just running and chasing, but also getting the ball to players in better positions etc. He's not fluid or silky, but I was surprised how much he was actually in the game.

Hannan, unfortunately, was mostly invisible live and on the replay. Hopefully he gets his mojo back soon.

It won't happen but in the relative heat of Brisbane I would like to see Preuss played as first ruck with Gawn used as a floating forward/chf for say 60% of the game and ruck the rest. He could even sit in the hole around chb.

We won't beat Brisbane playing our present gameplan and even if we lose we won't run Gawn into the ground.

Let's be honest there is no small/mid size player demanding a spot so we may as well try something new. I'd give Hanan a rest.

Goodwin's style is so slow and one dimensional Brisbane are probably lining up the MFC witches hats already for the attacking runs off half back.

What do you mean? Aren't we the team that plays on the most and goes backwards the least?

No, Lewis was purely BOG last week at Casey. Demanded selection. At his best is clearly in our first 18. We still need to win games to build for next season and convince the competition we are still a force.

    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.

    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
