Mitch Brown coming in off a 4 day break just won't happen, another  non performance from the tall will see him in for the Lions.

He won't play at Casey next week if this the case on Friday Night, they'll hold him over till friday week.

I tend to agree so IN :SALEM OUT: JETTA

Interesting that Lockhart and Baker were in the best.

Always wondered if Lockhart gets an extended go at AFL level whether he can make it. Has pace, courage, can mark the ball and is a neat kick.

Yep, it would be sensible to rotate Bedford, ANB and Kossie. I like ANB (sometimes), but can be very inconsistent and Kossie as an early career player will undoubtedly need the rest soon.

I'd add Chandler to that mix, too.

I know he looked out of his depth a little against Carlton but he has shown enough at the lower level to suggest it's only a bit of belief that is required.

Then you have 5 players in that role - Spargo, ANB, Kozzy, Bedford and Chandler - plus a few mids that can do it as well e.g Viney and Sparrow.

We need to make sure that group is fresh every week because our game plan is highly reliant on those tackles sticking and it was evident against Adelaide that those boys were tired. 

It's not a running issue - they were gut running. The final part of the pressure puzzle just wasn't to the usual standard.

Locky has all the attributes of a back pocket and IMO should mind Weightman on Friday night.

He was cruelly discarded about 2/3 of the way into 2020 by Goody. It seemed they any error he made was totally against his selection.

Niw that he had be played a really good game ( and regained fitness) he should be given the chance instead of Lord  Nev who is sadly not fast enough.

If Goody had played Locky all year in 2020 he would have had another few games and be really ready for the AFL now.

We need a smaller player with speed  as all the mediums and talls flew last week and resulted in a goal out the  back. 
 

Hibbo May get the call up for Bont minding but has he the full tank?

We need to look at our list and not keep going back to Melky  and Nev and give younger players a chance that will  improve our speed and run!

This will mean  they are ready for Finals  type pressure as injuries and form can dictate selection st any time.

Give Locky a go and I was disappointed Chandler ( yes he was not great vs Blues ) but needed at least another match to be fair. 
 

We need to pick a running side because if we don't we will be too slow chasing the Dogs!!

It was definitely peculiar that Lockhart had played quite a bit then just disappeared and never seemed to be in contention again.

Agree with you totally on Lockhart ..he has class speed and passion-goes 150% all the time.. Also agree on the need to bring more players through for the experience rather than waiting till later in the year if injuries occur. They need games under their belt. I would include Crawford and Daw in this too.

Ill conclude with this ....

" If we do not succeed, we run the risk of failure and failure without risk is not sustainable or attainable" PF 

Picket the perfect antidote after crowgate!  Your insightful and entertaining prose painted the rural idyll of the  Fields of Casey magnificently. 
We almost had visions of Geoffrey and Leigh-Anne flying in pre-bounce in a pink helicopter!

Admittedly we are still contemplating your allusions to Swanettes and Slitheras. Advisedly keep out of the long grass!

Found your pen portraits of the listed MFC most insightful. Would be good for some of those lads to get a call up to AFL level and perform well.

Still processing your homespun philosophy overall a top read cheers!

Any chance they could try Jake Bowey on a wing or forward flank, his delivery i50 would be handy

He seems to be coming along very nicely. He looks set in that back half role.

I think our forward half pressure players are doing well because they're all fit with mature bodies that can stick those tackles, so I wouldn't be adding him to that mix.

The wing could work, though.

We’ve checked this out and KC is correct. Munro kicked three goals. 

Watch the all the goals replay. Grey kicks a goal.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
