No chance Tmac goes back when you have developed Petty for 5 years for this exactly reason. He didn’t go back when May was out, and he won’t now that Tommo is out. It was a stop gap today because Norf were playing tall down back. 

Out: Tommo 😓, Melksham (wishful thinking), Baker 

In: Petty, Chandler, Sparrow or Harmes

Weideman comes in if Fritta is suspended.

Feel like Ben Brown had an 'almost' game. Could have easily kicked 4 goals. His 3rd shot was inches away from being over and the last quarter he spilled a contested mark in front of the square. Couple

OUT: Melksham As said the last few changes threads

Can’t believe the calls for brown to be dropped, zero chance that happens was his 1st game fir a new club will take him a few games to gel with his teammates

To be honest, I'm a little unsure of where to go with our lineup.

I sense that a Brown/Weed combo might make us too sluggish for our game style, but I'm going to run with it anyway on the back of the Tomlinson injury.

Out: Baker, Melksham, Tomlinson

In: Weideman, Sparrow, Bedford

TMac to stay back.

I wouldn't have a clue whether this works or not. Gee, it's a tough job picking the team at the moment.

Nibbler was very poor today but has some credits in the bank.

Sounds about right but Hunt played today

Likely to be slightly wet next Saturday night

Petty for Thommo. We need TMac forward where he's been very good for us this year.

Both Melks (other than 1 kick to Brown) and Baker very ineffective. I think i'd give Baker another game to see if he can find form. It's just too hard to justify carrying Melks.

Jones needs the rest so sparrow in for him.

Lol fixed it. 

Commentators called Hunt Josh Hunt. At least I didn’t stuff that up 😂

Petty didn’t play at any level this week. He’s the mystery injury. My guess is he won’t be ready. Tom stays back which makes me nervous but we don’t have a lot of other options.

Fritsch would get off if Chrisso has any idea. Let’s hope so.

Harmes didn’t look fully right in the VFL. He’ll need another week at least.

Melksham was Melksham but he still does some good with the bad. 

Brown was ordinary. We can try other options. He has to be trained to keep his feet, contest and contribute at ground level rather than gifted games.

In: Chandler, Sparrow, Weideman
Out: Tomlinson, Baker, Brown

What's with all the "drop Baker"? I thought he was ok, ran really hard in the 2nd half, and won some individual contests.

OUT: Tomlinson, Melksham

IN:  Petty, one of Chandler/Bedford/Sparrow (whichever 0ne is the most natural forward)

I saw the Fritsch incident. A fend off elbow to the head.

If the MRO charge him he’ll be missing at least 2 you’d think as the North player was hurt.

So I expect him to miss unfortunately.

Surely it's the Tomahawk defence. Just accidental, didn't even fracture the eye socket.

For the love of God, yes. I can't fathom how he continues to get a game.

He won’t be dropped as Fritta will get a week, so need a midsize forward

He was dreadful for the first 3/4’s. Just runs to all the wrong spots around the contest. Won’t put the body on the line. Even in the last he let Cunnington walk through him.

Brayshaw was also awful on ball. We’ve all seen why he doesn’t get more centre square time. He should move back to the wing. Jones, Melk, JJ as the 3rd option.

Petty in for Tommo is a must

Conditions will determine team structure.  If the weather is ok, Weids in for Melksham. Viney to return for baker.

Petty got banged up last week in VFL?

How does that differ to Tom Hawkins collecting Maysie?

And Viney was named in the team. Doesn’t mean either were fit.

I saw Chandler as the travelling emergency, likely to be the sub if needed. I didn’t see anyone else in the rooms post game.

Ben Brown isnt getting dropped. Its his first game back into it. Was played well by McKay and delivery was bad at times.

he was bloody horrific!!! he was weak on the lead. he never got separation and he gave a costly free kick away in the last quarter which resulted in a north goal. He also dropped the easiest of marks that would've sealed the game. he is a must drop.

Is there a precedent for a fend off report?

    DUCKING A PLUCKING by George On The Outer

    With seven consecutive wins for 2021 behind it, and not having played well in its previous game,  Melbourne was ripe for the picking (or plucking) by the Sydney Swans. However, in the end, it was the Ducks who found themselves plucked by a Demons side that continues its relentless successful roll for the Season. Or did the Demons narrowly duck a plucking themselves? Sydney brought its usual game style to the M.C.G.  Get in front and then shut down the game, scrap and refuse to mov

    THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY by The Oracle

    The month of May was a little more than halfway into its second day when the news came. Melbourne was on top of the AFL table for the first time since Round 3, 2005. As usual with the Demons, there was no time for celebration. They had just lost tough nut Jack Viney with yet another soft spot in his foot, Adam Tomlinson’s year was in ruins with what was subsequently confirmed as an ACL and Bayley Fritsch’s careless but unintentional fend off on North’s Tom Powell was about to see him charge

    BLUNDSTONE BOOTED by George on the Outer

    The tough Aussie Blundstone boot is made for true blue collar workers, and so it was at this aptly named stadium in Hobart, that the Demons were made to work their hardest for their seventh consecutive win of the season. From the outset, North Melbourne put scoreboard pressure on Melbourne with two majors at an early stage in the first quarter. The Demons fought back and temporarily had the lead but the Kangaroos responded to lead by five points at quarter time. This was not what the public

    UNTROUBLED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were untroubled for the third week in a row as they went on a four quarter romp at Marvel Stadium to record a 107 point win over an undermanned bottom-of-the-ladder North Melbourne VFL. The scoring riot began about ten minutes into the game when Sam Weideman notched the first of four goals that could easily have been six or seven but for some uncharacteristic misses from close in. The Demon forward, spurned so far by the club’s AFL selectors, demonstrated a strong work rate

    I’LL GIVE THEE A WIND by Whispering Jack

    The football world was reminded this week about the last time Melbourne opened a season with six wins or more in a row. That was in 1965 when Sir Robert Gordon Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia and the country was fighting a war in faraway Vietnam. It was before Jack Viney’s father, Todd, was born — a time when the game was played almost exclusively on Saturdays and when Demon fans used to wake up in the morning mostly safe in the knowledge that there was not even the remotest possibility

    MAKING HISTORY by KC from Casey

    This was a weekend of history with Anzac Day commemorations throughout the community including the sporting world including the VFL. For the Casey Demons, which originated from the Springvale Football Club founded in 1903, it was a double celebration as Saturday’s game was a celebration of the club’s 750th VFA/VFL match since admission to the competition in 1982. Springvale became the Casey Scorpions in 2005 when the club moved to Casey Fields and since 2017 has been known as the Casey Demo

    THE TWO ELEPHANTS NOT IN THE ROOM by WJ

    After another slow start when they conceded 2.3.15 to nothing in a handball-happy opening 15 minutes, the unflappable Demons delivered a warning sign of major proportions to the rest of the competition with their 34-point win over the reigning premiers in their Anzac Eve contest. And what made things even more ominous is that they did it without two elephants in the room - key forwards Ben Brown and Sam Weideman who have been amassing goals at VFL level while coming back from injuries that

    A TALE OF TWO HEROES by Whispering Jack

    On Saturday night at the ANZAC Day Eve game between Melbourne and Richmond, we will give recognition to the achievements of two great Demons who made significant contributions to the Melbourne Football Club over substantially different time spans. The first is the late Frank V “Checker” Hughes who was born on 26 February 1894 and began his career as a Richmond player in 1915. Shortly after, Hughes was called on to serve his country when he went to war during WW1. He returned from battle and

    TURNING POINT by The Oracle

    It wasn’t that long ago when Melbourne held sway in its Anzac Eve matches against Richmond. The early versions of the blockbuster saw the Demons home by 32 points in 2015 and 33 in 2016. When the turning point came it was dramatic and sudden. The Demons might have been on an upward curve in 2017 under new coach Simon Goodwin but so were the Tigers who had finished a disappointing 13th in 2016. When the teams met in Round 5 under lights in front of a crowd of 85,657 — the highest ever betwee

    STARTING OVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons made a successful return to the playing field with a 51 point away from home victory over the Box Hill Hawks. The visitors were starting over after a hiatus of almost 20 months and fielded a strong team of 14 AFL listed players against an undermanned opponent. And they showed from the first bounce that they were out to make up for lost time with an aggressive opening that saw them off to 21 point lead at the first break with thanks to a dominant midfield and two key forward

    NUTCRACKER by George on the Outer

    Q: How to crack a tough nut? A: Use a bigger hammer! It took Melbourne until the last quarter to crack the Hawthorn nut. These days, the Hawks under Alastair Clarkson simply don’t have the talent that served them so well in years gone, and they have to rely on not losing rather than trying to win.   The result is that the match became a slog for three quarters, as Hawthorn clogged the game, flooded heavily and simply stopped the Melbourne run.  Even in the first quarter the signs

    CANCEL CULTURE by Whispering Jack

    I’m not one who likes mixing politics with sport but it should be noted there have been some unusual trends in the world of sport lately. In the US, Major League Baseball announced that it’s moving the 2021 All-Star Game and the 2021 MLB Draft out of Georgia, in response to the state’s new voting law. Over here, there’s a move to force Carlton to change its club song because the original song on which it was based (written in the late 1800s) has “racist connotations”. The Blues maintain the curr
