CHANGES: Rd 07 vs North Melbourne

Weed would be privately miffed after kicking 10 goals in 2 weeks.

Presumable Melksham or Jones will be dropped for BBB unless there is a mystery injury or resting required.

Very much doubt the Weid comes in too but you never know I guess.

 

Whether Brown and Sam Weideman both come into the side this weekend remains to be seen.

“Albeit we love having them at VFL level, they are certainly far too good for VFL football,” VFL coach Mark Corrigan said.

I reckon the coaches will be absolutely loving what Spargo brings to the forward line. I've never seen a Dees team put on the forward pressure that this one does and Spargs is a huge part of that

Out: Melksham In: Brown   We didn’t get a 60 goal a season forward to win games for Casey. It’s time. 

Spargo is playing selfless footy. He puts his body on the line in every contest. People have to stop looking at his stat's. Spargs role is not about winning the ball but making sure the ball doesn't l

Why wouldn't they use the north game to try something a little different:

Out: Jones and Melksham

In: Ben Brown and Weideman

I would have scoffed at this a few days ago, but now, not so much...

It’ll either be Melksham dropped or Jones rested.

Jordon also an outside chance to go out .

Harmes not far away from returning either.

Jordan should not be dropped ( only managed if necessary ) for Harmes to replace him. Harmesy needs a good 2 game block at Casey to earn a recall as JJ has done as asked from about 70% game time only.

I have no idea where Harmes fits in our side

Jordon is proving he is just as good if not better than Harmes on the inside. 

If Jordon could hit the scoreboard that would be huge, but I like his role

Bringing Brown in is gonna cause some structural shift. Unless you drop LJ & Brown contributes in the ruck. Neither of which is on.

So Brown forward, Melksham Casey and TMac to take over Melksham's "connector" role which is essentially a large part of what he's been doing anyway.

We lose Melk's distribution skills but TMac gets the ball more, is a more obvious target & far better in the air. He kicks fairly low & flat into the forward line so that may be to our advantage. He'll throw in the odd howler but who doesn't.

This gives the least disruption to our structure.

I've no idea how to fit Weid in at this stage

No No No 

Tmac DOES  NOT take over Melkshams role. HE continues at CHF and plays as he has done. 
 

Mediums and LJ are now in Melky role same as BBB at FF with LJ next to him running around or leading or marking with  a small forward in the pocket.

LJ is the X factor who can play HF FP or FF if necessary or ruck  as required. 
 

It may mean Maxy limits his time up forward depending upon the game situation etc.

Amazed some posters want Harmes back in.Whats he done since 2018? Definitely keep Jordon maybe also bring in another recruit with a full tank. Brown must play.  I just hope it doesnt rain or blow a gale on Sunday.

The two outs are obvious.

I tend to agree with you. I would play Jordan over him at the moment - he has a better footy IQ and will only improve with age and experience. 

Harmes may become trade bait at the end of the year given lack of game time.

I see him and Jordon fighting it out for the one spot, and until Jordon is dropped or rested, Harmes will be at Casey for the foreseeable future.

If they try and jam him into the team it will be a terrible mistake.

Would rather see any of Bedford, Chandler, Sparrow or Lockhart in than Harmes.

Jones and Melk playing VFL and Rivers out according to @Dannyz mail, so there could be more changes to come along with Brown.

I'd like to see Bedford or Chandler get a guernsey.

Harmes could not have injured himself at a worse time, he will (should) be pushing [censored] uphill to get back into the side.

Whats this?  Is Rivers injured?

If hes out then Bowey is a sneaky chance for a debut.

Agreed, hope we've seen the last of him. May get a few possessions but butchers it every time.

I know weiderman has kicked a bagful, but I still think Brown is more reliable and experienced. We know how good a player he is. He can mark the ball and is a pretty good kick for goal. I'd just have more faith in him kicking a few goals than Sam.

Regarding Harmes, i don't want him back in as i'm not sure currently he makes us any better. Maybe he does, i think he was best as a tagger, but viney is doing that role, so could he come in fora Jones? I'm sure he will be back soon regardless!

The visible fact is that Jordan is getting red-hot! A few more consecutive games, he'll most probably be white-hot. This is a wonderful conundrum (which player to utilise) for the selectors - and each provides a variation in the team's productivity. Great times ahead ...

In 2018 he nullified every team's best midfielder and got possessions himself. 

Now you're going to say "Yes in 2018".

Agreed, he was great in 2018. But on current form you would have to question whether he could get a game this year. If we are not looking to trade in, I think he will request a trade out given lack of game time.

Yes he's done it consistently at AFL level.  The jury's still out on Weideman.

Harmes had a pretty awful year last season. He even admitted this in the recent Gus n Gawny podcast. He was placed across half back where he really struggled to make an impact and settle into the position. He's been moved back to HF this season where he prefers to play and more comfortable in the role with his marking ability.

I think he's another guy that provides depth. I'd imagine the role of mid/HF will be rotated throughout the season between Harmes, Jones, Jordan, Melksham and Sparrow. Another area where we have great depth and competition for spots so I can see this being the most common area we will see ins and outs throughout the season to keep us competitive.

Harmes in eventually for Jones to me is a stronger side. His contested work, fitness/agility and marking ability gives him the edge over the old head of Jones who hopefully will be in and out for the rest of the year as depth.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
