Looking at that team, to me, it looks light on midfield rotations. Of the 8 named on the IC, 5 of them are defensive players and 1 is a Ruck/forward leaving just 2 who can have time in the midfield. Not at all balanced to my mind.

Just mentioned on TV ~ Brisbane have only 2 players on their injured list. 

We get four new players on ours every week!

Wtf???  Which Oscar are you referring to?  Is this an attempt at humour by Goodie?  How did he get on the emergencies list??  Surely he will be at Casey

Weird that Oscar was named given the club said during the week he would play VFL this week.

Hibberd for Wagner seems like it could be the only change, unless maybe C.Wagner replaces ANB? Or could Lewis come in for Petty and we go with just the two talls?

Only confirms, once again, how out of the loop the average fan is as to what's really happening. Selection is not just based on what's on view to the public. Thankfully.

Good for Oscar to be putting his hand up.

After his in and under game last week Lewis may be part of the rotations,. I think final I/C will be Hore, Hibberd, Petty and 1 of Lewis/ANB

Rotations through middle Viney, Oliver, Gus  Trac, Jones and Harmes + 1 of Nibbler/Lewis

Good to see Selwood's knee-dropping, ducking protege, Rhys Mathieson has been dropped.  That is a few 'head high' frees we won't 'give away'.

Was originally thinking we might only go with Frost and May against Hipwood and Mcstay, but they also have Mcinhernney to throw forward and give Martin a chop out.

Will be interesting

I suspect it about confidence. The club is saying we rate you. You are in the frame and will be back soon.

That and trolling the naysayers on demonland.

Hibberd for Wagner seems like the only change for me although can't see how Hannan holds is spot with 3 absolute stinkers......(he wouldn't get a game for Casey at the moment)

I thought I knew a little about the game but like what bing181 said, as supporters we obviously have no idea what goes on in the inner sactum.

What, you don't think the club agrees with the demonland posters who seriously believe he will never be selected again? I mean don't they know he is not AFL standard?

I very much doubt he'll be selected but will go back to Casey with a very public and clear statement of support from the club (no doubt partly to counteract the white  noise of virtoil out in unsocial media land) and get some form back. Good man management.

As I have said he'll be back soon enough. Some elephant.

I think Lewis comes in too and ANB is the likely out.

Hannan is very lucky given his last couple of games.

Hannan has been average since 2017. Let's be honest. He had a good finals series and like a few others appears to be running on fumes this year.

To provide context, The blokes been injured, is that fair and reasonable? The FD clearly rate his flexibility and a prepared to back him for a run of games, rather than drop after 2.

It didn't say his averageness wasn't justified. I just said he'd been average since 2017. His versatility is obviously important but how long do we carry players who need 1+ months to find form after injuries? At least AVB has immediate impact.

Petty is a better investment in the backline than either Lewis or OMac.

    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

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
