All this  analyses of Weideman makes it seem as if Lloyd doesn't know  he's been in and out of the team for the last five or so years but can't come good..

 

He's a leading marking forward who can't catch the ball

He's a good kick 

He looks as dopey as Mathew Lloyd but isnt as talented which is a pity but still  maybe the Hawks have long memories about playing against him and will be a little worried.

 

BBB plays like Mr Squiggle but is better at footy.

Tom is the best of the three but can't keep his form over a full season and he's had nearly 200 games to prove it

 

These are the kind of correspondents we need in the trenches as we continue our 2022 campaign.

Classic MFC fan revisionism of BB. He was fantastic at North and has been, and currently is, the best tall forward we have.

There seems to be a strong anxiety on the board about us losing a KP Defender mid match, and thus TMAC is the only way to manage such a scenario, thus he retains his spot in the side... 

I'd argue there a range of other options, that don't include TMAC. Including one of the rucks to drop into the hole.

If we lose a defender mid match... then so be it.... it happens.

Agree - I think that's why match committee also like Smith.  Will be interesting this week to see if TMac stays out and Smith is dropped for Lever.  I have a suspicion that despite his good form, it could be Hunt that goes out instead.

Wonder if Ooze will coach from the bench

Goddamn Covid, why such a biatch?!

I doubt it.  He is the eyes and tactician in the box.

In an interview recently he described the coaching role on the bench as giving player feedback and keeping their spirits up.

We have Williams on the bench who they players are very used to having there so it should be fairly seamless.

With Goodwin out there is no doubt that Lever and Viney being experienced on field leaders will be a welcomed addition to the side.

The boys have risen to every challenge and this should be no different. You know your roles and  you know your game, just stick to it and back each other.

At least Oliver (and everyone else) won't need sunscreen.

First game in 3 years live... staying up in Melbs also for the first time in 3 years (Jolimont) on Friday and Saturday.... anyone got some good recommendations for food that isn't fish n chips or good ol australian country town chinese takeaway?

By the proverbial county mile too.

In fact he seemed to have improved his ball handling and an ability to gather off the ground. Some of his work in that regard against the tigers was super impressive.

A key role for Weed is to block and screen for BB because opposition teams look to double and triple team him all the time.

Which, by the by, is further evidence of how far ahead is of Weed and Tmac, as with all due respect to both, neither get doubled teamed.

The 3 outs with covid could be Bedford, Jackson and Oliver?

All live in the one household and this purely going off Bedford's instagram..

👎not ideal.  Enter Big Majak and Dunstan to stay in.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k
