I just dont get Melk and Fritta together.

Its too short.

Yea ..Fritta if fit is a lock.

Not only are we too short but Melk has played 2 games this year.

One poor and one just above average.

Wied and Bbb with ten goals are not rewarded.

I just dont get the Jake love.

 

Agreed with you 100% on Melksham, but 80% chance of 1-5mm in the arvo tomoz.  T-Mac and Jackson is all we need up fwd. Don't need another tall.  If anything Bedford for Melksham I'd like

I think Im just dissappointed not see one of those gun fwds in.

Maybe the trade Tmac thread I scoffed at wasnt so bad except maybe trade Wied or Bbb.

Not a pot shot at Fritta as hes been a star this year but I kinda almost hope he isnt cherry ripe and Goodys playing games.

That’s what I think.

Otherwise I can’t understand how you keep a young key forward out, who has kicked 7 in the VFL the week before.

I think we are more balanced and dangerous with another key forward.

Maybe the selection committee has chosen a side they think is suited to beating the tigers....

 

Just a thought

Next week, if Covid doesn’t ruin things, is the time to bring Weid or Brown back and see if we can play 3 or even 4 talls. 
Richmond are too potent on the counterattack and having to many forwards who don’t apply defensive pressure is risky, especially when they’ve never played together cohesively. 
Good move to pick Fritsch IF he is 100%

It's a strong team, love May back in,  very quick recovery for both Fritta and May,  hope the doctors have assessed them and they are 100%.    But the whole idea of Rewarding the Winners, keep the side settled  as much as possible.

and the beauty is If someone does not perform, then there is someone belting down the door kicking goals at Casey.

 

Love the pressure to perform, keeps them on their toes and against the Tigers they need to be.  Richmond with the extra couple of days off should win, BUT we can jump them and beat them.   They know they have had more time as well.  To get over niggles and to relax into over confidence. Something we can not have given how short our preparation has been,   I think we will win it, Run over them in the last.    Go Dees

Forgot about the forecast. If it’s wet then 2 talls is enough. Need more ground ball pressure.

Fritsch is as good defensively as Melksham.

Lucky he is a valuable attacking option.

Never expected to see Weid and Brown in this week, but am disappointed to not see Weideman named.  Goodwin talked a lot this week about not wanting to lose the ‘chemistry’ in the team and I suppose it came down to that.

Would prefer to see someone like vandenberg as the injury sub and the young guys playing full games to develop at Casey.

i think they want to see if weid can back up his form for more than week. was poor in practice match prior.

they also want to get a better comparison of form between bbrown and weid, because once they pick one, the other is effectively locked out for a few rounds

So, a few of my takes are:

The claws out for Melksham this week are pretty harsh.  Bloke kicked 2.5 pretty good goals and setup the game turning Max bomb last week.  Yes that's similar to M.Brown, but Milkshake has a bigger upside and is better embedded in the side;

Weid has only averaged the same number of goals at VFL level over the past 2 weeks as our top goal scorers of last week and the same as B.Brown.  How many people were singing the Weid's praise after his performance two weeks ago when he hardly touched it.

I'm far happier to make bigger changes next week than this one.  It's not like another run in the two's will do either of Sammy or BBB any real harm.

I reckon if he’s named sub then it’s a dead giveaway that they are not 100% on Fritach’s hand. The Tigers will definitely take that as a sign to test it thoroughly.

Fritta doesn’t strike me as the Jack Viney, keep going until you drop dead, type.

I don’t think he can nurse a hand injury with his game style

The Tigers are weak. They will always be the rabble we know and love who were in the wilderness with us for 40 years. I don't care what anyone says.

I don't rate any of their three flags especially last years Covid circus flag.

I don't rate their 2017 flag either where they beat a rubbish robotic Adelaide team.

And I don't rate their 2019 flag where they beat the fake soulless GWS with all of their 11 fans cheering them on.

I don't rate Richmond.  Never have and never will.  Hardwick is the 2nd worst premiership coach ever (2nd only to Chris Scott).

Lets end their fake little dynasty and make them 'The Tigers of old' again.

I’d be ecstatic  to win 3 of the next four Premierships and have other supporters not rate them.

I was looking at some stats and although Luke Jackson is doing a great job in the ruck as a ff has kicked one goal for five games.

Is this accurate and is it enough?

He is getting the ball to ground and helping Max win games but at this rate will be lucky to kick five goals for the year if he plays a full season.

Needs to hit the scoreboard a lot more.

This is a brave call from Goody.  I reckon the easy option is to bring in Brown or Weed, but do you sacrifice you fwd pressure?

this seems like a very measured selection.  Respectful to those who have got the job done and keeping the system stable

Fristch and May are Massive in.   I am proud of T Mac to give the selectors no option but to keep him at CHF.

    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

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
