and what would you do with Stretch... renewing all three could be a challenge

Stretch is very much at the crossroads and I would not rule out him being elsewhere next year!

I'm a big JKH fan

So dissappointed his injury happened as he would've gotten a good senior stint to prove himself

I know he's depth, probably ahead of Stretch with skills, but behind ANB for size and tank (but better skills)

I hope he gets another year 

I was actually surprised he was dropped a few weeks ago I thought him serviceable.

Keep for another year, possibly at Stretch's expense!

Slim pickings for the AFL team...

On a day which should have suited Spargo 13 possessions is not a great return! I would have thought!

Still think he can make it, but we will make changes at season's end and he could be one of them.

Five seems to be about the minimum number of changes we make and Lewis will be one, so a few boys will need to perform, unless a couple want out, which will free up places.

Out of interest would you put Jay k-H in the seniors ahead of Alex N-B?

I think ANB is a much better pressure fwd than JKH.   JKH is an outside mid and I believe a bit soft and that’s why he doesn’t get a look in.

The selection criteria (from the outside) appears unfathomable at times. JKH was selected after an extended period of recovery from his knee injury and performed credibly at Marrara v crows. To be omitted after one game in favour of  Mitch Hannan for the big freeze game v  pies. Who appears to have had an extended opportunity to gain match fitness whilst playing at AFL level. His performances thus far have not been particularly overwhelming. Michael Hibberd who has struggled at times to replicate a semblance of his All - Australian form post 2017, when available seems to be an 'automatic' selection. Whereas Josh Wagner (who has a chorus of detractors on this forum) is the first dropped but continues according to pundit(s) yesterday at Casey "to give 100%". Admire his attitude and commitment. Beyond the "gruppe denk", fair and objective observation, whilst noting his on-field performance parameters, suggest his contributions are overdue for some revision and perhaps grudging respect. On team selection the match committee would do well to defer to "reputation never has much to do with reality".

Things do tend to disappear when you swallow.  If you mean Sparrow, he's injured.

Only 2 of our recently drafted youngsters are not injured, Jordon and Bedford.

This story seems to be a bit hard to swallow, but  being a sparrow, Hope he hasn"t bitten of more than he can chew?

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century "spearwa", Middle English "sparewe", a sparrow. The surname was originally given to a homely or chirpy person,

Wonder if he lives up to his name

Maynard has no chance of making it at AFL level but I'd love him to get another go before he's inevitably delisted just for the tackles.

Does anyone have a take on Dunkley's game?  Looking like he might get an AFL game on merit this season or perhaps not?

Wasn’t a standout at all. Couple of average games in a row. Not banging on any door atm.

Did Bedford play an average game this week Chell?  I think he wants to debut next week!  😉

Dunno, wasn’t out there, but I do know tht Dunkley has had ok form only at Casey. Was surprised to see him picked ahead of JKH. I am no JKH fan, but he had been in better form. I guess we are just rolling the dice now that the season is cooked.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    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. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell
