CHANGES: Rd 10 vs North Melbourne

Agree, although I read Goody say Harmes could play next week, which means no change IMO.

You’d be stupid to risk Harmes off a short break and a long flight against North, when our next month sees us playing Freo, Sydney and Brisbane. 
Playing with fire. 
Wouldn’t be against playing Bedford and pushing ANB further up the ground to cover the Harmes role. Bedford deserves a full game. 
Dunstan doesn’t cover Harmesy’s role for mine. 
 

BBB’s 150th next week… appropriate 👌

Dunstan (if not injured) for Harmes (inj).

Bedford (medi sub) for Chandler (susp)

Out: Harmes (Inj), Chandler (Susp)

In: Bedford, Laurie (Sub)

Give Bedford another crack at the level,  and Laurie a chance to experience game day prep.

Those that think Chandler won't be suspended are crazy, it wasn't a good tackle. They are all trained to tackle to the side and drop one knee if possible.  Motion in the tackle is exactly what the AFL don't want as it leaves the tackled player in a much to vulnerable state.

there was no malice in the tackle and he didn't mean to hurt him but you have to tackle smarter than that in today's game.

Chandler "guilty" before being tried...  Must be a new way of doing business.

They look at the result which was a badly concussed player. With the duty of care you’re assumed to be guilty, rightly or wrongly 

Not guilty your Honour

In: Bedford Out: Harmes.

Chandler wil stay as the sub as he won't be suspended it wasn't a sling tackle so he won't get suspended. He pinned his arms if he didn't pin his arms it would have been holding the ball.

I don’t think Salem is anywhere ready. Didn’t he just start running last week? Still think he is 2 weeks away. 

If Dunstan is out then it might be a shuffling of deck chairs to bring a defender or Forward in. My guess :

In : Weid to CHF, Tmac to wing , JJ to mid / HF

Bedford for Chandler as medi sub. 

 

Weideman has had his chances and failed to capitalise. If a wildcard chance was to come into play, I would rather get a game into Van Rooyen. Having said that if Dunstan is fit he plays if not Laurie might be a chance.

The last 2 games have shown why Tmac is well ahead of Weid.

I'm sure i differ with virtually everyone else on this forum but I think that Bedford deserves a one week suspension for that tackle.

I'm not a great fan of Melksham, but I think he would be a suitable med sub if Chandler cops a suspension, particularly to help him get closer to 200 games.

Chandler should get suspended before Bedford.

I hope they bring in Laurie or Van Rooyen - we're playing the bottom side and its important they get a taste.  Both are playing well at VFL level.

Problem is to bring them in for just one week isn't Goody's style, and not really a fair way to judge a debutante

Disappointing to lose James "Chompers" Harmes. He has been in good form and his kicking has certainly improved over the last 12 months.

I would love to see Bailey Laurie get a chance against the Kangaroos even just as a medical substitute. We definitely need to give our younger players a taste of AFL experience.

However, I think Toby Bedford, Kade Chandler (if he isn't suspended) and Jake Melksham are the front-runners to replace James Harmes.

What I'd like to see: 

Out: Harmes, Ben Brown
In: Laurie, Van Rooyen

Just to breath a bit of youth into a game we'll win anyway.

What will happen:

Out: Harmes

Laurie was named as an emergency last week (St Kilda game) so he's certainly on the radar.

Shame if Dunstan is injured. He played a good role against the Saints.

Then there's Melksham

Going forward I would like to see a few more goals from the midfield group. Gawn aside they haven't been giving the 4 odd goals a game you would expect from that group

Have we lost him? Haven't seen that anywhere yet.

Goody said it was tightness and they were hopeful for this week, although that was post-game and pre-scans of course.

If Laurie gets a game I hope it's not as the sub. Imagine having all your friends and family come to your debut game where you might sit on the pine all day. Or get in the ground for 5 minutes for 1 handball. Don't like it.

If I was a one legged prawn in a flock of hungry seagulls, I would have more chance of surviving than Ben Brown getting dropped! Just will not and should not happen!

I get peoples excitement with JVR but lets let him develop in the 2's and get him doing it consistently over a few weeks before giving him a call up.  Also, the idea of swapping him for Brown really wouldn't happen this week noting:

  • Brown is leading our goal kicking average
  • He's about to play his 150th game
  • Which is against his old mob 
  • Who shafted him
  • Who really are playing awful footy
  • And released there best defender last year to the Tiges.

BBB will be training the house down all week in preparation for a bag.

Edit:  Also, it just won't even happen this year for Brown

lol lets not exaggerate. He was very close to getting dropped a few weeks ago when the Brown vs TMac vs Weideman started to circulate. 

He kicked 2 on the weekend and 6 possessions against very very weak opposition.

I agree its important to keep young players flowing through the side no matter how well we are doing and this is the perfect week for a debutant against the youngest side in the comp - we havent had a first gamer since Bowey last year have we?

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air.

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
