I hope we don't play either forward.

Maybe Frost to the wing. I want to see a smaller forward line hopefully Hannan petracca hunt are the go to guys which means we will lower our eyes and be forced to hit a target. Gawn/ pruess the last resort option

He's also a gun key forward, and we don't need a ton of tall defenders against the Dogs.

Not saying it will happen, but out of Frost, Petty, Lever and May, I would say he's the best forward option.

May can play big and small.. He  is a thinker...he can intelligently sum up the play and do something constructive.. Take him out of the backline and it WON'T matter who is up front...they'll never see it

Would only be a 'break glass in case of emergency" kinda deal, just saying that if we move a defender forward, I think it will be him.

Their forward line is hopeless, and our backline is stacked. Can’t see them scoring enough. We win this

I shall be viewing this game from the ever warm and welcoming bosom of The Manor.

It will interesting to watch the impact Preuss up forward. I do not expect him or Max to kick a bag as they will be swarmed by defenders whenever the pill gets anywhere near. The ball will come to ground.

However, hopefully the likes of Hannan, Petracca, Brayshaw and Hunt will be presented with resultant opportunities.

I will not be surprised if we get a sneaky win out of this.

If we are close at 3/4 time, I shall lock the maid up.

Uncle If you lock her up can I come over, I have rare liquid refreshment and I know you just Love my taste in Music

I shall be attending.

Tried to get BBO to attend with me, but he couldn't stop complaining about the weather, the time slot, Docklands stadium, the great unwashed in GA.... blah, blah, blah.

It's hard to maintain interest in his conversation at the best of times, let alone the 2 hours it takes to put on his make up before the game. Those poor kids at the face painting booth get very frustrated with his selfishness.

Oh well, I suppose I'll just have to face the rain on my Pat Malone. Phew!

Petty if we have to.

We need to be getting games into May, Frost and Lever (along with Hibberd, Jetta and Salem, and Hore if/when we can) as a defensive unit.

Yeah that's a great point. I'd obviously prefer that, but if we're moving a defender forward it probably means we're pretty much screwed so I think all that stuff goes out the window as far as Goody is concerned.

Has Petty played forward at all for Casey? I know Keilty got tried at both ends for a while, but any idea if Petty has shown anything at that end?

Forget everything I said haha, Goody just said on radio Petty will play forward today.

Another game I decided to watch from home. Between our form, the cold and the lack of trains it’s a TV game kinda day. 

Will be interesting to see Petty forward. Can’t see how we can kick a winning score today, but luckily the dogs aren’t big scorers either.

Gawn and preuss should dominate the ruck today. Our midfield should get first hands on it.

Yeah goody said on mmm petty will go forward.  That will be interesting.  I'm also looking forward to seeing what hannan can do today. 

Good to have jetta back

All these people saying the Dogs have no forwards have t obviously been paying attention to Naughton. The young guy is a gun.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z
