5. And they were good. And terrible. But they were gifted to him.

He marked well, but didn’t dominate as he marked them.

Hope that’s clear.

I beg to differ, I watched him very closely today and I was super impressed. He ran his AZZZZRSE OF presented well clunked marks, worked hard, praised team mates and generally was very very involved. Unless you want Spargo to be the Go to forward which occured when caught one out last night! ( (No disrespect to Charlie who continues to play well) Then we are CRYING out for someone who will 

1 Take no1 Defender

2 Can Mark

3 Can Kick

And who kicked 5 today in very flukey Casey Type conditions!

HE PLAYS NEXT WEEK. I HAVE DECREED IT SO ???

Cannot see any candidate to replace Hibberd next year if needed. May need to trade for that player.

 

Tomlinson back to his previous/ Petty’s role,

Petty to FB, 

May to Hibberd’s role,

Releases May to a more attacking role.

Not only can Weiderman not hold a mark, or kick straight, when the ball hits the deck he’s totally exposed and shows no desire to chase and tackle.

Catch the game today Chief?

Dreadful first half but I can understand why Casey played the way they did....... lack of matches due to lock downs. B.Brown was o.k without setting the world on fire but he needs to play seniors . Jones was good. Vanders played well in patches. I would like to see Daw and J.Smith play forward with the Weid playing wing/ruck.

Watched a different game to me RPFC.

The big man did his job and did it well.  Stayed mobile, presented well.  Ran hard both ways.  Took some ruck contests and got involved in some decent links of play.  Marked overhead from behind and on the lead (creating space on his tall opponent).  Kicked accurately from distance.  He even hit up the Weid at one point who went back and missed.

One game doesn't a summer make but he's earned a call up for a block of games starting this week.  He looks more match ready (fitter) than his early season fail.

Lucifer knows we need a genuine tall marking target who can hit the scoreboard from anywhere 35 to 50 meters.  Most of our other forwards are serviceable at best but most can't kick beyond 35/40 and even if they do on rare occasions the distance is mostly beyond them which sees them too innacurate.

The question is who comes out?  Fritschkreig must be under some consideration. Tried hard last night but he is a forward and kicked zero goals, 1 tackle and only 6 effective disposals.  Was easily in our bottom 3/4 players last night.

Agree with most of summation Rusty. One change Sparrow for BB 

BUT warning to Kossy, Fritsch .. Perform this game or you might find yourself at Casey as Jones and Vanders Super impressive! Bowey not that far of either, Plays like Caleb Daniels and might just be better than him in time to come! Even Melk showed some desire today!!

Melk got better as the game went on PF.  My bug bear with him (mostly at senior level) is that in congestion he too often wants to hand responsibility to others and panic handballs into trouble as first option to avoid the heat.

Seemed to get down and dirtier though improving in this aspect in the 2nd half and his ability to evade and  dangerous kick came into play providing plenty of serviceable ball and connecting i50.   Was in the top 6 for mine today.

Vanders similar.  Started off a little Rusty but came home like a train in the 2nd half.  At this level he is mostly solid.  I just feel the speed of the oppo & game catches him out a little now upstairs but who knows.  He might prove me wrong and force his way in at some stage.

Bowey was ok in patches.  Still a fair bit of work ahead before he is ready for mine.

Thought the 2nd half of Rosman was a beauty and showed some of what we have to look forward to in seasons to come.

Baker was the other who shone on the far side wing for mine.  Aside from one or two poor entries he was in everything and his run off half back was superb.  Delivered the ball quite nicely i50 at times and 2nd efforts were there.

Lockhart had a very nice quarter and a half from about half way through the third.

Bedford had a nice last quarter as well.

Close picket. I prefer the Mignon a tad over medium. Little Giant was fine but I went to the cellar for a preferred choice tonight.

The Maid is being coquettish and wearing Essendon colours.

That is simply not going to happen at all. Neither Jones or Vandenberg could possibly replace Kozzi or Fritsch. We don't have a another player on the list who could replace Kozzi.

Vanders and Bedford are ready to go.

Yes, Vanders was excellent and clearly gives us additional grunt inside as well as another dimension outside. I think as we get closer to the end of the home and away, we may turn to additional experimentation to test best combinations. . Vanders and BB  even Jonesy would have to be close to the top of the list. Also BB today made his case. They will be having close consideration to excluding sparrow, even Kossie in the finals line up. No doubt there will be some experimentation once our top two position is secured. In any case there are sure to be injuries which will require replacements.

We need to try something else. Play him at  CHB in the twos . It worked with both G Lyon and Neitz.  They both returned as much better forwards 

Wow . . . just wow . . . . 

I watched every game they both played. This is a complete distortion of reality.

wouldn't mind seeing him played a little further down back as "Hibberd insurance".

We know he is okay as "Langdon insurance".

The forward deliveries after some of those long runs was a little disconcerting but that is system footy or should I say ....

question... with GWS and the Sydney lockdowns what's the chances of a VFL game for Casey next week?

Doubt they brought the VFL team down with them. Perhaps the AFL/VFL could be inventive and allow some supp players from somewhere.

Couldn't stand another practice hit out

Perhaps a game against one of the Melbourne non aligned sides assuming they have a bye

A really enjoyable look at our up and comers. Most of the players showed something after a bit of a scrappy tussle in the first half.

There were plenty putting their hands up for a senior call-up - Jones, B Brown, Bowey, AVB and Melksham. Unfortunately, there aren't too many spots up for grabs.

I was really keen to see some of the draftees and I wasn't disappointed. For those that didn't see it:

Bowey - great composed game. He was on top of his opponent(s), skilled and smart with the footy. I hope he gets a game at some stage this year.

Bedford - had an impact in the last quarter after a quiet game. There are nice aspects to his game - speed, endurance and pressure. He seemed to impose himself on the game late and might have had more of an impact if he'd done so earlier.

D Smith - He strikes me as a neat, committed player with plenty of skill and game insight. I look forward to seeing him develop.

Laurie - slick ball use  and an impressive skill level. Got caught once or twice but first game after a long time. I recall him easily spinning out of trouble in his draftee highlights videos. A tougher gig at this level and he may need to work on that.

Lockhart - a mixed game from him. Showed a bit and also let himself down  couple of times.

Chandler - at times he showed he was a class above this level. At other times he seemed to get tangled up in the scrappy stuff. Good pressure.

Rosman - his composure improved as the game went on and there were a couple of impressive plays. He needs some games and experience under his belt. He's got the endurance to get to more contests but that'll come. He looks like he's wearing a rug!

Turner - plenty of composure and intercepting. Didn't make any mistakes and shows promise. A great first game

Bradtke - Curious that he was in the backline. I assume he's learning the defensive side of the game. He didn't do a whole lot wrong (out-bustled once or twice). Good disposal and agility for a beanstalk. Twenty kgs would be very helpful for him.

Declase - Another good first game. He was solid without being spectacular. Disposal was good and he improved as the game went on (following an early bomb into the forward line). Potentially a good role player. Good skill set.

Baker - Had a good game and he got better as the game went on. I think this is his level.

Just a question for anyone at the game today.....

How really fit did BB look today and i mean not equal to the previous stint.  But equal to other KEY forwards in AFL now?

    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

    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.

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021?
