Interesting no Salem?

They’ve basically never really said he’s injured or with what. They sort of referenced it in passing in a press conference. I suspect he’s struggling a bit with groin issues that they’re managing. Don’t think they want to advertise it tho which is fair enough. 
I think Tom is a good chance to play. If his back was really bad they wouldn’t have put him through that flight or made him leave his family for 7 days to stare at a hotel wall.

There was also a rumour on Demonland that he was injured but seems as though it was just a rumour.

Such bad luck for Hunt. He was one of 12 (I think) players to have played every game to this point, wasn't he?

We can cover him I think (Hibberd), but hopefully our season progresses long enough for him to be able to push to get back into the 22.

Bad luck for Hunt. Sent back to his natural position on halfback this year and he’s flourished again and played every game. He’s not the cleanest player, but he’s one of our most impactful when on. Shame he might miss playing finals after being a consistent part of the team that got there.

Super disappointing and his pace will be really hard to replace. I hope he can make it back for prelims if we make it that far. 

I would say Hibbo is the natural replacement there and Bowey can play a more attacking role with Hibbo defending. You lose pace with Bowey but you gain better ball use. 

Let’s hope Salem’s groins hold up n

We loose a lot of run out the back half, hope it's only 3-4 and with the bye he's still a chance

That is really rotten luck for Hunt, he’s really looked a lot more settled this year and has used his outside run well (particularly when he partners with his twin). This is without a doubt a loss. Hopefully he can get himself back in for some finals later on.

Um is Hore going to play this year? 

Yes but not in the seniors unless absolute disaster strikes with injuries.

Wouldn't have thought we'd lose too much pace with Bowey. Kid is quick.

Yes but Jayden is a seasoned campaigner and line breaker and can take a lot of physical pressure, we couldn’t expect Bowey to withstand that tempo in his first few games. Very sorry for Hunty one of my favs. Maybe deClasse to wing and JJ half back??

Doubt we will debut any more players this close to the finals but could be wrong. I would expect Hibberd to come in with his pace and experience. Hope he has freshened up a bit because he looked way off the boil in his recent games. 

Perhaps Hibberd can play a lockdown role on opposition defenders like his game against dusty earlier in the year. Should free up Bowey for some more  attacking plays and remove intensive defensive responsibilities.

Unlucky for Hunt but I still am not sure how he would go under under finals pressure. Would prefer players that are more reliable than those that might get caught HTB on a long run. Harsh I know, he had been good this year. But we can cover him with Bowey and Hibbo

judging by alan richardson's video i would guess plugger mac is less rather than more likely

If so the question will be will do we look at Weideman one last time? Felt we were a tall short against West Coast.

Hibberd is finished too slow and fumbly we need to include pace into lineup this week maybe Bedford??

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
