Salem has been our best, for sure. And by some margin. But has had a couple of games where he was off his game.

Hore has played well every game I reckon. 

Wasn't Hore dropped earlier in the season?

Nevertheless, and more importantly, Hore has been a great recruit for us. It's obviously a shame he'll be out for the next few, but he's already done enough to be our best first year player.

If Jetta returns I wonder who would have made way for him should Hore not have gotten injured. I suspect potentially Lockhart or Dunkley. But would have been interesting. Hore has slotted into Lewis' and Bernie's role rather well.

Think he struggled in his first game and was dropped, which led to a couple of posters saying he was no good and would never make it. Since his return he has been great.

Fritsch forward to replace Tom.

Gawn back in his usual brilliance. 2 weeks for a sprained ankle is about right.

Keep Preuss in. He’s a great mark and a long kick. He had a good game today.

Lever to the backline to replace Hore. 

Maynard or Jordon in for potential and development. They did well at Casey. The Wagners are just no good.

I still think that the Wagners can further develop given further opportunity - moreso than some whose opportunity opportunities have yielded very little in a developmental sense. The Wagners are mobile, for starters, and at different times in different ways, get the pill and use it fairly well, fairly consistently. I'd expect that their stuff-ups will wane somewhat as their own processes onfield automate.

I've said before that I would prefer Jordon gets a call up.

JKH deserves a run on form and Jordon has shown enough in recent games to put him ahead of the Wagners to my mind.

Must be getting close.

Assuming Gawn plays, is Preuss a certainty to keep his spot considering they're so reluctant to play Gawn and Preuss in the same side?

In - Lever, Gawn

Out - T Mac, Hore

Jetta to have another week at Casey (IMO) considering he's missed 10 weeks and didn't even play a full game at Casey on his return.

JFK would probably be border line. He probably didn't deserve to cop a bullet after the Adelaide game considering he was only promoted for 1 week after a long lay off, and has regularly been in the best for Casey.

Jordon's put up some high disposal games since shifting from the backline to the midfeld/forward rotation at Casey, but I'm not sure that means he's anywhere near a debut. With a late December birth date, skinny frame and limited TAC exposure he'll probably be better off just playing the year out at Casey. He's not going to get midfield time in the AFL team and we might have enough backline options for the rest of the year. Maybe if they give Dunkley a couple more games and if he then goes back to the VFL you could give Jordon a go but too many young guys at once if they haven't really bashed the door down at VFL level is a recipe for failure.

In: Gawn, Lever, JKH

Out: TMac, Hore, ANB

I noticed in the Carlton game and (IIRC) the Freo game, ANB was on the bench at the end of both games. That tell's me that when both games were going down to the wire, with players fading fast; the player with the most run, who covers all the kms was on the bench (only one spot on the bench for the Carlton game). Speaks volumes to me.

BBP - that was with Tom there too ... now I would see it as a no brainer (which doesn't necessarily mean it will happen though).

Gawn and Lever obviously in if they are fit.  

If Petty is not right, then I think JKH is the most likely.  We will need leg speed against the Bulldogs.

Exactly the way i took it.

Gawn and Lever most likely to be our only changes for Tmac and Hore.

Jetta another week at VFL level.

Possible but so far this year he's usually been pretty up front to say when best 22 players are going to pay vfl. Usually when they've said available they mean they'll pick them in the 1s. Unless he is suggesting that Jetta is not a walk up start anymore

Have a mate who's a Casey regular and he was saying Nev told him at the game that he would play another 1-2 VFL games as part of his preparation. Obviously things can change quickly in footy, but my personal opinion would be he should play another 1 at least. Only played a half last week.

I'm interpreting this from Nev as more likely VFL, but AFL a possibility.

I took it to mean they’re in. Lever played in the VFL and only had a minor injury to start with so there’s no way he’s not ready. Jetta was mentioned in the same breath, so I’m interpreting him to be in similar condition.

In: Gawn, Lever, Jetta

Out: TMac, Hore, Petty (whether injured or not - team balance)

I know we differ on the whole injury rehab/preparation vibe, but surely playing 1/2 a game of VFL football in 11 weeks isn't enough preparation for a full game of AFL?

and it wasn't that flash a half from what I noticed... one absolute clanger of a kick and outmarked on another causing two direct goals

Very rusty I thought...

So we are going to bring in Nev - Slow and slowing and underdone, Lever - Slow, underdone, Max - Big and slow, keep Pruess in, Big and Slow, with Weid, Big and slow. plus we expect ANB to be the small forward.. which he is nothing like a small Fwd.  against The dogs who are quick and on a really fast deck. 

Why are we rushing Jetta back in? I

Quite often an experienced AFL player with many preseasons comes straight back in after a long injury out, without a VFL game. 

So, I don't see a problem bringing in Nev with one VFL game.  If he comes in he will be ready to play and will perform to his usual high standard.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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
