TEAMS: Rd 22 vs Adelaide


Demonland

Recommended Posts

So Hibb for Hunt.

Would have liked to have seen Baker in for AVB for this match at least.

Gus plays AVB's minutes in the middle.  Baker covers Gus's wing for this match.  If Gus goes down between now and finals or in finals i would be reluctant to look at Baker with only one AFL match under his belt many months ago.

Like to see how his disposal goes under AFL heat as well.  One of the quickest in the team, he could also (potentially) play the Hunt role (in the short term) if Hibb goes down as a last resort until Hunt returns.

Would like to see Weids and BBB work together in the forward area. They did alright out at Casey.

Vanders and Sparrow struggled in Perth, so both out for me.

Interchange could be: 

Jackson, Jordon, Weids and either Hibbo or Smith.

Hibbo is a known quantity, so Smith  to get a run and see if he fits in, Hibbo as med sub.

Not sure there is a forward position for Bedford unless they go small and have given up on the Weid.

Weid in, given we have no TMac?

Or stay short given O'Brien is out?

I’d go short as Adelaide’s only chance is to play a fast ground level game. Also, Weideman doesn’t need to audition for finals while every small on our list good enough does. We all know that if McDonald or Brown go down in a prelim (says 77 hail Mary’s) Weid is straight in. But what if ANB gets injured, or (says 777 Hail Mary’s) Ed Langdon?

 We need to know who comes in for them.

Didn’t see Bedford coming. 
 

AVB gets another crack. Gotta wonder when we’ll see Chunk again. 
 

 

Thought the same, and wondered if Toby has been included to give Koz a break, after the s#!t he copped on social media after the WC game.  Goodie suggested that it cut him pretty deep.

Looks like it's just Hibbo in for Hunt I like it would be nice if Jones could get a gig at least as a sub maybe later in the year. I think vandenBerg will be in the 22 for his 50th and Sparrow the sub.

15 minutes ago, whatwhat say what said:

gotta stick with our preferred dry weather mcg structure

IN: hibberd, weideman
OUT: hunt (inj.), avb

avb for medi-sub

vandenberg was already the sub. Jordon or Sparrow must go out then.

Weid needs to come into the side. At the very least to get some match fitness.

Hibbert in for Hunt.

Sparrow perhaps lucky to keep his place in the side. Jordon to stay too.

Don't want to see Baker, AVB, Jones or Belford in the side. None of them should be in a finals side, although I'd be happy enough for Jones to be the med sub.

I would go Jackson, Jordan, Sparrow and Bedford as IC with Hibberd as Sub.

That would give us a reasonable midfield rotation and might allow Kossie a bit more time in the middle with Bedford covering forward.

So the four ins join Jackson, vandenBerg, Jordon and Sparrow on the bench.

Jackson's not going anywhere so vandenBerg, Jordon and Sparrow are likely to be the candidates to make way for Weideman, which IMO is the move we should make, get back to our preferred forward line mix ready for TMac's return.

I'd go Weid for vandenBerg along with Hibberd for Hunt, with one of Jordon/Sparrow the sub.

I doubt Bedford will ever make it at AFL level, but perhaps he deserves one more chance. 

Wll, we've all made quotes like that which have come back and bitten us on the butt. So I hope you're wrong

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
