CHANGES: Rd 12 vs Sydney


Demonland

Recommended Posts

Out: Melksham, May (, Dunstan)

In: Harmes, McDonald (defence)

BBB was worst on ground. While he has credits and is obviously important, that was way below par. Mitch Brown should be under consideration.

Bit hard if all we do is bomb it in to packs for any player to mark we do not have a park mark player time to change it up.

It will be very interesting to see who comes in and out. We have a lot of sore, tired players (Gawn, Petty, May, Petracca and others) and we also had a heap of our very reliable players playing poorly. But you can't drop half your team. 

Surely Dunstan, Melksham and Weid go straight to Casey and used only if desperate. Rivers needs a break, he has been average at best this year and defensively our weakest link.

Thinking that Hibbered, Salem, May, Langdon, Harmes, TMac and Smith are all out shows how

Milkshake and Weid out, should not play ones again. May will miss with concussion. Petty may be doubtful, but he did play on after his injury (looked like an ankle). Dunstan is depth at best. Hopefully Langers and Harmes come in, TMac in but does he go back? If so, is it time for Van Rooyen if he hits the scoreboard at Casey tomorrow? Would like to see Hibbo in,but maybe another game at VFL, get him in for Collingwood to smack Ginnivan into the universe.

Not Carey but van Rooyen. Brown's had it and Weideman never had it. His combination with McDonald will go a long way to us winning the flag again. Lets face it we have a great backline a great midfield but an average forward line. van Rooyen is our only hope in rectifying it.

Tomlinson for May is a certainty.

After that depends on Petty, Petracca and Lever's fitness, and the fitness of those who we desperately need back.

Melksham, Dunstan and Weideman should all be dropped. Who replaces them is TBD but hopefully Langdon, Harmes and McDonald are fit.

If Langdon's not ready we can't go into the game with Spargo the starting wing.

I'm prepared to give Brown one more game, in the hope that the delivery is better than it was tonight. And because Weideman was just as bad but with fewer credits in the bank.

BBB has learnt the Melbourne way ( or whoever we are called at present) running up and down the field  maybe he could stay forward a bit more and use those big levers to snag marks and leave Lever to intercept down back.

Langdon, Harmes, McDonald come in. Tomlinson replaces May. Weideman and Melksham should never play a game again, that leaves one more out sorry Bedford it's back to the sub again. van Rooyen or Mitch.Brown should seriously be considered in replacing Ben.Brown.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
