Well at least it's after the seniors game so the super sub and emergencies (touch wood) hopefully can play

the usual deal is that the emergencies hit the next plane out (say 6pm) so they should be right to go at Casey.

The sub.. who knows Even catching the 8am flight means you arrive Casey at around 11am Possible

Actually interested in seeing Matt Ling from the Swans in this match as well. Former top 15 pick a few years ago. Injured over 2018-19 but apparently back in good form. He is a fast skilled left footer who plays half back- wing. Swans have a few similar types so Dees might reach out at year end for a chat.

Currently averaging 16 disposals at VFL level. Not exactly big numbers as a midfielder mate..  I know you're big on looking at sub standard AFL players who contribute well at VFL level.

But, gone are the days the Dees go just go for bit players mate. They chase blokes that we well established AFL players that can slot straight in and make a sudden impact like Lever, Langdon, May etc.

List clogger would fit the term if we are looking at blokes like Matthew Ling.

I am surprised Bowey has been picked. For a vfl side that is not a bad forward line.  Wonder if Jones will play.

The number of plodders that Demonlanders suggest we go and recruit is quiet hilarious.

It's mind blowing..

We haven't recruited club plodders since the Michie, Ben Newton and Aiden Riley era.. yet some think that it's still needs to be a thing with this footy club.

Goodwin and co don't operate that way. List management have shown that we'll either go to the draft to get talent or stock up on established AFL talent.

Just interested in seeing how he goes. 
Your vitriol towards fellow Demon supporters is unbelievably tiresome. Do you really enjoy it? Obviously you’re still on the mods watch list.

You got offended over that...???

How was that vitriol or offensive?

Bit over the top DD. Injuries have meant he has hardly been able to get a good run at it.

The Wagner brothers were literally on our list last year. Mitch Brown and Majak Daw are both on the list currently. There's very little established about them.

This isn't the thread for suggesting retirements/delistings but there's going to be plenty of changes at the end of the season and we don't have a first round pick nor do we probably have all that much salary cap space.

I reckon we'll be adding a few mature players, be they late pick trades or delistings. Somehow we don't even have any half back flank depth, nor any wing depth. I'm willing to listen to suggestions about anyone who can run and kick.

Josh Wagner was picked up in the national draft mate. You've missed the point I'm trying to make.

The difference with Mitch Brown and Majak Daw was that they've shown to be really solid role players at AFL. Daw was considered All Australian half way through 2018 playing back and has also kicked 6 goals in a game playing up forward. Mitch Brown as well has already shown he can step in and make a decent contribution. 

They come in having already played solid AFL football and can impact straight away when needed.

Matthew Ling has played 4 AFL games and averaged 7 disposals in those games  One of his weaknesses as a junior was he was classed as more athlete then footballer and needed to work on his ball winning capabilities. All you're adding there is another Oskar Baker. 

Don't just add players just for the sake of it.

Dazzle is the worst poster in the country so I wouldn't worry about it Norm his vitriol is tiresome I have him on ignore the best thing I ever done for my sanity remember he's the only one that is ever right. I would be interested in Ling too still young and can run but is injury prone. Keep up the good work Norm and Dazzle do us a favor and stay off the boards.

I hope every Melbourne listed player was watching the Adelaide game licking their lips. Put in a good performance and a call up could be on. 

BBB in particular should really put his hand up for selection now.

    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

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc
