Chook your dreaming !T MAc was sacked from the backline for very good reasons

My recollection was the TMac wasn’t sacked as a defender, he was moved forward because we lacked tall options and showed he could actually hold the role quite well.

must be like Jackson who i said is a good 0layer but simply not a natural forward. people were saying he is close to kicking a bag etc. surely people can see im right now?  most of his goals have been from ground balls so far.

Everyone loves you Doc. We all see you are right. Well done!

Melksham won't be dropped. 

Out: Tomlinson, Baker

In: Weid, Harmes/Sparrow

Not that Baker played horribly he just wasn't the right type to cover the Viney loss. 

Tmac looked great back so hopefully he can slot in there.

You play one bad game and win by 5 goals to go top of the ladder and all the crazies are out of their boxes yelling at the sky.

Can I bring up that Kozzie Pickett thread from last year?

Got that ready to go if you're not wanting to be embarrassed once again.

On Viney, he had a hot spot on a big toe.

Possibly not as bad as a hot spot in his troublesome foot area. 

Out:

Fritta, good chance he is suspended. Heavy hits to the head need to be stamped out, even if unintentional. His eyes did look at the opponent. Will be missed, as he is the forward most likely at the moment. 

Tomlinson

Baker, good depth player. Needs a bit more, team first stuff, and to fix up his lobed/slow kicks.

In:

Weids, big boots to fill with Fritta possibly out. Hoping he and BBB click.

Sparrow, need the big body, in, under and around to replace Viney's efforts.

Petty, knows the backline system better than Tmac.

Jones to be the medical sub again. Knows what is needed when/if, he comes on.

Whoever we bring in to replace Tomlinson, we are going to miss the flexibility he gave us by basically never coming off. Prior to today he averaged 98% time on ground. Ed Langon as a comparison is 93%.

Leans me towards wanting to try Tmac (90%) down back so as to not disrupt rotations through the rest of the team too much. 

Petty as an FYI is at around the 75% mark

It's ok 'o'...then Jackson will give Hickey a bath.

Jackson was key to our resurgence in the 2nd half, we're not a one trick pony.

Fritta will get a week. The media witch hunt has already begun. Unlike the accidental elbow Hawkins delivered, which was universally excused. 

That David King is a mofo. " Fritsch he has to go you, can't raise your elbow and make deliberate contact to the head".

What a [censored] peanut.

You'd suspect Sparrow would have come in for Viney if his injury was known Thursday. The most like for like IMO. 

So out Baker, in Sparrow. Toughness is a must given the swans mids. 

Out Tomlinson, in Petty. It's his time. 

TMac was only one wayward kick away out of defence today for the sentiment to be entirely different haha.

Is Viney out for an extended period? 

At least two to three weeks according to the club via the Fox commentary today.

I suspect we'll have to manage his loads for the rest of the year.

That helps in terms of a possible punishment.

Do you think it was a reportable incident?

No way. The North player was falling into Fritta and led with his head. If he was upright then the fend off was at chest height. I reckon he has nothing to answer for.

Yep, but you can swing your elbow back in an unnatural action when being tackled and hit a 6 foot 6 bloke and brake his eye socket

Am I the only one that thought Baker was ok today.  I'd give him a block of 3 or 4 games.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
