GAMEDAY: Rd 16 vs Carlton

It was pretty much confirmed for me when he went off last week but I just wanted to know when a late change has to be announced/confirmed. 

Team sheets are due in xxx (I think around 30 minutes) before the game starts. That's the last time for a change save for a "fresh" injury after submission. (Travis Boak was withdrawn yesterday during the warm up for example. Interesting ... he suffered back spasms which one would think could be described as a pre existing injury.)

The official team sheets have to be in 90 minutes before the bounce, so I guess we'll hear officially sometime around 11.40ish.

Can't be McGovern, we've heard of him. Will be some bloke who has played three games as a defender now kicks five.

Utterly meaningless game today....but decided to go along anyway despite being hospitalised with a fairly serious issue 2 weeks ago (after the win over Freo funnily enough)....what else have I got to do with my Sunday eh? Looking forward to see Kyle debut if nothing else!

On a hiding to nothing today.

We win and they’ll say we beat a Cripps less and Curnow less Carlton,  and our coach will embarrass himself with his emotional hugging and embracing of all 22 players, like he’s done with all our other mediocre wins this year.

Lose, and we’ll rightly cop it left, right and centre.

If we don’t win today I very much doubt I’ll bother to watch another game this year. 

I’m actually expecting us to play out best footy of the year and hand Carlton their arses.

If MFC put our best player at risk of exacerbating his injury in a nothing game, in a nothing season, I will be livid.

Not going today. Frankly can’t be bothered anymore. I didn’t miss a game voluntarily under Bailey or Neeld or Roos. But I’m exhausted from this season. Gonna watch from home where I can turn it off and do something better if things go wrong as they have all season. 

Bring on 2020!

Well I have no idea what will happen today. No gawn is a huge loss but I'm looking forward to see preuss get a go and see what he can do. 

Also looking forward to seeing dunkley debut.

I really hope Preuss does well.  For him.  For the team.  For the sanity of all the posters on DL who have been begging for him to play.

Yes, but why the intrigue and disruption. Why would you risk Gawn even having to try and bit fit. Should have had his feet up, figuratively speaking all week.

At least you spared them the danger of seeing a win and getting hooked by  going with you.

Wish him all the best. I hope I'm wrong but I always thought his role was to free up Gawn not replace him. Bit of an unfair test if supporters are expecting more.

Preuss with support from Tom Mac and Weideman against Kreuzer... this could be instructive

The way the Doggies played. That is a team with spirit and s culture. Why can’t Melbourne play like that?

The Doggies had to fight to keep the Club alive and they now really stand for something in the Western suburbs with strong community networking, interaction and planning. Now they have the facilities that go hand in hand with the fighting spirit. That is why I see what they have achieved as a model for our future home base and a clean start.

    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

    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
