Majak would be wondering what he is doing on the list if one of the mid season draft blokes gets a game down back

Would be a very strange time to give players a rest with one game in 22 days.  plenty of time to rest.  ~12 days off post Pies game

perhaps there are some actual injury concerns

He’s back up ruck. I don’t think it’s so simple. Max should have a rest at some point. That is his best opportunity to play IMO.

Got some notes from the practice match yesterday: 

- Chandler was phenomenal.  Had ridiculous numbers with very high possession and kicked 4 

- Jones played well and is a class above at that level 

- BB was good without dominating 

- MB very quiet 

The games were joint teams from Pies, Bombers and Blues 

Where did Chandler play? As a Mid, or small forward.

Pretty sure there is a quote for the club somewhere saying he was drafted as a (backup) forward. Then Tommy  stepped up to A grade and Brown is in the 2s.

Majak's best year by a long shot was when he played down back for North. Can also play ruck.

So............

Mid and half forward 

When he played against Carlton? he played with a lot of energy and was in a lot of pack/fall of ball contests, but didn't get much of the ball.

Maybe he is a Mid; that's gonna make it hard for him.

I agree but he is still very young and has time on his side.

In: Langdon

Out: Melksham

Only the one change this weekend. We would all love Weids to be marking more and kicking a couple of goals each week, but he went out and didn’t lose a one on one which bought the ball to ground. He was directly involved in a few goals whether it was from a handball or off his own marking contests, so I would like to see him given a bit more time. The goals and marks will come, but at the moment he is crashing packs and halving marking contests which allows Spargo, ANB and Pickett to get to their work of crumbing and pressure.

Ok, I'll just reiterate this is all unconfirmed so take it with a big grain of salt:

Salem and Lever out. One other player out too but not sure who. Apparently one of the brand new blokes a chance to debut as well, I'm assuming Turner as he's a similar role to Lever from what I understand.

Again, very very much unconfirmed at this point.

Still no Gawny n Gus podcast (I'm at home with a bung back not much else to do) They normally record early in the week. I recall one episode a few months ago they spoke about a resigning and had to delay the release of the podcast (Benny Gibson even said "we'll have to delay this now")

 

You might be on the money. A convenient "getting to know" video released a day or so ago too... 🤔

OUT MELKSHAM, HARMES, WEIDEMAN

IN LANGDON, VINEY, B. BROWN

A really good fit for Collingwood, that's my take on Weideman.

His hands are poor and his kicking skills at goal are very poor. Season 2021 so far, 4 matches, 3 goals 4 behinds, says it all.

There is no lockdown role for Harmes this week, so for team balance he goes for Viney.

Melksham is simply omitted due to his lack of defensive acts.

Sparrow stays due to his work ethic and upside.

Welcome to demonland, but please read the injury updates. Viney isn’t back until after the bye. Also there’s no way Harmes would be left out even if he was.

I doubt this is the week they give up on Weid with Brown lacking serious match practice, but that’s a different issue.

Ditto. Welcome weg.

It's great that so many new posters are jumping on board the demonland express. Love it

Ditto on harmes too. Has been fantastic since he came back in.

And whilst he is a good option to tag an opposition gun mid he doesn't need to tag.

Didn't really tag lag, well not hard anyway, week against one of the gun midfields. 

And I reckon goody sees him as a key player. A best 22 lock for the rest of the year.

Would love Jones in for Big Freeze game, but probably fanciful.

Wouldn’t it be magical if Jonesy becomes our medical sub in our winning grand final side and he plays out of his skin in the final quarter. What a great way to go out for such a wonderful servant of our club. 
 

We can only fantasise!

Go Dees!

I have a feeling that Goodwin will give Sammy W one more week to prove himself.  If he has another poor game, he is out and B Brown will play for an extended block post-bye.  

IN:  Langdon.

OUT:  Melksham or Sparrow (liked Sparrow's game though).

Is there any further word on the rumours earlier this week about Salem and Lever potentially being a bit sore and having a rest?

Unfortunately Viney has been ruled out this week, available post-bye hopefully!  Langdon comes in and in my view Brown will replace Weideman post-bye, although Goodwin may have lost patience and might strike early (I am just about ready to push him back to the VFL).  Harmes might get freed up if there is no one to tag and play as a pure mid, let's see what he can do!

Agree - I think we are a better team with Harmes on the field

The only change I see is Langdon in - who goes out not sure 

Really hope Lever and Salem are fine - they can have a rest after Monday

Be great to see Weid have a good one - at least a few strong one grab marks and 2 or 3 goals, anything less and he is on thin ice. BB needs to really earn a recall IMO not just be gifted a game because Weid is not firing on all cylinders

Given that we have a Bye next week and Buckley's resignation probable effect, I would hope that if Salem and Lever are sore they can rest up over the BYE. I would think that a lot of the players may need a rest. Salem certainly looked patchy last week.

    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

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
