Langdon Concussion

Baker has not shown anything and does not run as hard devensively, I’d give someone else a go.  Push ANB to the wing and bring in Bedford 

Couldn't agree more. Langdon isn't just a foot soldier that does a job on that wing he brings things to the table that almost no-one in the team has and that is his aerobic and anaerobic ability. Big loss, will need to find a way to simplify the role for whoever takes it.

Sparrow in for Melksham's role, Melksham to Langdon's role?

 

Well I know what I’m doing if I’m Brisbane. Run off Melksham. The man has absolutely no defensive running in him. He can kick a footy, but Jesus he is soft as butter.

Outside of Oliver, I reckon our most important player. This could be dangerous with Brisbane. A massive massive loss.

We have had a number of players off for 1 week like Salem and Jackson.

Could we be low-key resting players in a distributed way under the gause of injury?

Left field thought but could we move Salem to the wing for a week? He definitely has the tank and works hard both defensively and offensively. 

Arguing against myself we need our small defenders at the top of their game next week and Salem is pivotal there... Jetta is past it. How has Lockhart been performing at Casey?

I’m just not a Baker fan. Maybe it’s Jones.

Maybe, but does Melksham have the required tank? I'd like to se him on the wing to find out...otherwise I'd be confident of ANB filling the role...

If Ed is feeling ok to play next weekend shave his head, cover him in tats and call him “Nathan Jones”.

Don't fully get the lack of love for Baker.

Yeah he's no #positivelingers (let's face it other than the man, who is?), but I think he showed good intent and attack on the ball when we played him late last year and again against North.

If his Casey form is decient enough (mind you that's hard to evaluate with the lack of games) if we are not prepared to play him in scenarios such as this, you wouldn't think that fairs well for keeping him on the list.  However I doubt that's the case, since he was promoted for the North game and an advantage of Casey not playing this week is that he'll be pretty fresh as opposed comming off a six day break that Brisbane will be.

Jones in to play the defensive wing tbat Gus has been playing.

Gus to offensive wing

That's robbing Peter to pay Paul 2 potential Losses there on both wings.

1. ANB to one and Angus to  continue his team defensive play on the other.

2. If not then Baker gets a chance.agsin. 
 

3. If we are very brave Rivers to Langers  wing and Lockhart to  mind the Lions smalls. 
 

DONT MOVE Angus he is going fine in his side of the oval.

Interesting that no-one has suggested T-Mac to the wing and Ben Brown forward. What a difference 2 months makes.

No  it doesn't Tommy  i s not a wingman NEVER was and NEVER WILL bE 

He played  about 3/5 mins on the wing  to get mobile then went forward in 2018. 
 

How any one thinks he is best in our team on the wing full time  as against a KPF is not watching the game very well.

Gee what rubbish Salem was listed as soreness but we don't really know the real meaning of that.

Jacko did have a real hand  injury and Ed let Sparrow on who I believe is concussed also.

Huge loss because the reality is we don’t have an adequate replacement.

We’ve seen Baker and chandler this year in cameos but I’d like to see Bedford brought into the side. See if he can step up. He’s done enough at Casey so has earned the right.

I’d try Hunt on the wing. His tank has improved (particularly remember the tandem running he did with Langdon vs the tigers) as has his defensive game. 

bring Lockhart in to play defensive on either Bailey or McCarthy. Hibbo for Cameron.

Ed Langdon cannot be replaced like for like. He’s a HUGE loss for us - devastating news from an incredibly impressive win last night. 

Baker very unconvincing in the North game…and no chance this weekend to make his claim with the VFL cancelled. 

ANB or Hunt on the offensive wing for mine - all have a good tank and have improved their disposals.

Did anyone notice how and when it happened?

Not mentioned in the commentary as far as I recall.

No one has a tank like Langdon, so it's probably likely a couple of players rotate in that role. Gut feel is they'll bring in Baker, but it worries me having him and Gus on the wings, neither are great with the ball atm.

    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
