Out: May, Melksham

In: Tomlinson, Langdon

One of Brown or Weideman will most likely come out for McDonald pending the fitness of Petty. If Petty misses due to injury, McDonald to play back and Brown and Weideman get a reprieve.

BBB has credits in the bank. Weeds hasnt even opened an account! He cannot get another game as a forward IMV

BBB is a genuine chance to be dropped this week.

Personally, I'd leave him in, but that's the current goss.

(Not sure what that means for Weid)

Would not surprise me at all, he has basically had minimal to zero impact the last 3 weeks. Id give him another go as well, but he is on notice for sure.

All our Fwds led to the same spot all night, 3 big men going against each other, it really was an awful display of forward line set up.

That how May got concussed as well competing with Lever and Petty for the same ball doesn’t look good when your three tall defenders all go for the same mark and one gets knocked out by his teammate.😢😪

Petty and May both on their man, Lever coming over to intercept. That's pretty much our defensive plan every week. Was just bad luck.

If Petty is out along with May, I'm more than comfortable for T Mac to play down back along with Tomlinson who appears an obvious in. T Mac is an excellent one on one defender who is hard to be out marked.

Of course allowing T Mac to go down back  is predicated on BBB and Weid having more than 3 possessions between them, and dare we say it, Brown kicking a goal or 2 which is what we brought him in for from North.

 

Would bring Plugga (for Petty) & Mitch (for Weid) in if Petty doesnt get up this week.

I agree.

Seeing your two KDs well on their men (at a glance), i would think either wait for the spill out the back or side.

Alternatively look to come over the top and punch it away but in that situation someone needs to stay down and play the rover role IMV.

"In more positive news, Harry Petty will be in the clear to play after some concern around his fitness against the Dockers.

The key defender was dealing with a knee niggle throughout the match, but scans have cleared him of any damage, allowing him to continue training in full this week."

Petty pictured in training with tape around the knee today, hopefully good to go.

He had one decent game against the Bombers.  I don't like to write any player off but if we have alternative options i would be using them before Weid.  That includes Mitch Brown (ahead of Weid every day for this season for mine).

Re BBB ...at least one more credit 😅

Before we decide the Weid is totally useless at AFL level. I would like to see how he plays I. In The back half. 
he can grab the ball or punch it I don’t care but try him at Casey for a few games and suck the lemon and see. He has a  lot of positive attributes . big, agile,  can he read the play NBI

but u would hate to see him succeed at mthe pies in the back line.

we will win this weekend

Encouraging news for Petty according to our Doc:

“MRI has cleared him of any structural injury, and he will look to full train this week leading into our game.″

That is a worthwhile idea if he could actually tackle or had a competitive bone in his body. 

Would love to be proven wrong but unfortunately his days as a forward at the Dees are well and truely over.

I hope his biggest backers can admit defeat in their opinion of him being a better Forward than Tmac and BBB.

Hopefully a revitalized Petracca returns this week. We missed his beast mode in the contests last week.  He certainly wasn’t 100% imv. 

Goodwin said today on radio that Tracc’s decision to play came down to him saying he was ok, but that decision was a chance for him ‘learn’. I interpreted that as code for ‘shouldn’t have played, and possibly won’t be trusted with the decision making in the future’. He was clearly very ill. Goodie said Tracc told them during the game he didn’t have the energy to get to the contests - so they put him forward.

I had a different interpretation.  It was a chance for Petracca to learn what his body can and can't do.  Really, neither Petracca, Goodwin or the Doctor would know how it would go until they tried.   We don't know whether the illness was ok during the day but got worse as it went on.  I think someone posted that he was seen vomiting at the ground.

Anyway, we had limited options on who to play instead of him.

Yep agree, Horribly out of form. Needs to have a strong second Fwd to help him.

He was supposed to be supported (for much of the match) by Weideman - some chance! The Weed ensured he stayed out of the action, leaving BBB in most circumstances with two defenders to  overcome. Sometimes, three; then one smaller opponent would get under his knees with a lateral body push just after BBB left the ground in a leap, casting BBB outside of the exact marking zone. This is not an excuse for BBB, it is just an observation that he should have anticipated and leading-up, he could have avoided.

Thanks just the same, Weed. Not many teammates are going to seek your assistance and scant teaming from now on...

The passage of play when reviewed is a surprise ... it is almost Lever's right to mark with his tracking of the ball, and the Petty/May cluster did not appear to see him coming.

Oskar Baker would have been a better option than half a Petracca, much better.

It's an interesting question, especially with Majak Daw and JVR both outs due to illness at Casey. Perhaps there was more going on than we know/knew about. At this level, if you're even 5% off it'll have an impact.

There’s a lot of flu, RSV and a super cold getting around . Could have been anything though

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
