I thought Melksham had one more chance as we were winning but no good pick on form which is always a good thing hope Chandler and Weid take it with both hands.

I do like Melksham as a down hill skier, he has a level of polish in swift ball movements that isn't replicated by many. 2018 Finals, his Hawthorn goal off 2 steps and the kick to release Hannan. Those efforts are priceless.

But given the increasing strength around him, good to see him forced out on form

Speaking of downhill skiers... it snowed today people!!! ⛷⛷⛷

Wow, Melky out, playing a role but not quite enough impact, though I thought he was improving over the weeks. Could be the med sub.

Great for Chandler to get a chance, would like to see him hit the scoreboard early and get the confidence going.

Jackson out will cause a disruption, hope we can adjust. I assume Gawn will take the majority of the game on the ball.

C'mon Dees get the clearances, hold our marks, have crumbers and kick goals with greater accuracy.

Go Dees!

What do we see as a Weid pass mark? 2 goals, some assists and tackles?

Will depend on his whole game rather than stats - if he gets double teamed all day and finishes with 4 touches but allows Brown/Tmac/Fritta get off the chain he'll hold his place!

Nothing to fear from Carlton's changes:

Out: Jack Newnes, Michael Gibbons, Jack Silvagni

In: Marc Murphy, Will Setterfield, Nic Newman. 

Cripps will probably put in a blinder as he did a few weeks back when the media put the blowtorch on him.  Harmes to take care of him.  May will take care of McKay, if the ball even gets down there.  A dark horse is their ruckman, Pittonet.  Last year he really lifted and was the reason they got back into the game and nearly won.  Max needs to be on the ball and dominate.  Hibberd to keep Eddie quiet.

There will be a day when we lose but I don't think it will be tomorrow.

Was incredible, an awesome response to one of Gawn's all time most dominant quarters.

Always think Melky is good for a goal or two or at least a few goal assists with the penetration in his kicking. But fair enough, I like Chandler and it looks a better balanced forward line with this change. 

On a side note - refreshing and good to to see the team named how it lines up on the day. Why play games. Must have been Choco’s idea.

I’m hoping that Melk being dropped might quieten those who seem convinced Goodwin favours his selection. TBH - I’ve defended the selection of Melksham but mainly in terms of not being our worst and that Goody is not Gody at selection. I neither love or hate him.

What it does suggest to me is that one of his attributes - being an occasional marking target in F50 - is not needed with Weid in the team. Dees more than ever need genuine crumbers at the feet of BB and SW, which Chandler will provide. 
 

I like this decision as one of the concerns with Jackson out is we lose a tall who is a genuine gun below his knees. Chandler balances this a bit.

I’m excited for tomorrow, wish I could be at the game.

 

go Dees!!!

Agreed. Jack Silvagni usually plays well against us as well so glad he's out. 

interesting selections, i don't rate Newnes, but he is a better chance of being able to go with Langdon than Setterfield.

And the thuggish Petrevki-Seaton isn't playing so expecting a 'bruise-free' Carlton. He, he. :cool:

Would Weed offer more or less to the team than Melksham at the moment?  

Would rather see Chandler get a run at it for Melk vs Weid ...mostly for team balance up forward and see how he goes in general, especially with pressure inside 50.

I like this team. 
 

TMac to have a lot more movement up the ground and to be fill in ruck.

With Chandler in the team I can see Spargo playing a bit more expended role a little further up the ground as I believe Chandler is a natural closer to goal. The other option is to have Pickett play in middle a little more.

Good luck to the young fella! 

Agree. He has shown enough at Casey for his chance. 
 

Jake might have had a tough week with the newborn coming home.  Might be a chance for him to get 2 hours sleep on the bench. 🤣🤣

    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
