CHANGES: Rd 15 vs Brisbane



Recommended Posts



OUT: Sparrow, M. Brown, Disco
IN: Rivers, JVR, May

Can't rely upon Harmes/Sparrow as mids, need Brayshaw or Jordon to have stints back in the guts

Out: M. Brown, Turner, Bowey, Sparrow

In: May, Weideman, Rivers, Hunt

Rivers and Hunt to the backline and Brayshaw to return to the wing.

Probably doesn't matter what we do. Our pressure and structure has fallen away and I don't think we have the fitness to correct it. We played our best footy last year as a front half team and we have barely seen a hint of that this year.

Out: Mitch Brown, Turner and Pickett.

Van Rooyen is apparently playing better than Weideman right now.

Like Brayshaw back to the wing. He has been uniquely terrific, he can still help in D and we can use his ball use going forward.

Need to give Weideman an extended run now and simply hope for the best.

Who stays in 

Brayshaw Oliver Trac (but he looks sore or sick)

Petty Gawn Lever Viney Jordon Jackson Hibberd

Safe : Salem Langdon (too wide and shutdown easily) Fritsch Bowey

on notice 

ANB getting the footy but completely ineffective - destroyed many forward chances 

Pickett - stay inside 50 please - Quaynor owned him all day 

Sparrow  ummm looks like he could be on fire then extinguishes himself with poor decisions 

Harmes  hit a target !! 

Spargo great 1st half  was Noble’s gimp in 2nd half 

BBB is lucky Tmcd is injured and Weid is a marshmallow 

OUTS  

M Brown Turner (concussion) 

Chandler - was like a rabbit in headlights (really!!!) 

INS

May  Rivers 

sub. Baker

Jeez we are looking exposed.

Turner out (concussion; bad luck he looked good esp. early) - May in

Rivers in for Bowey perhaps (give Bowey a little freshen up in the 2s)?

MBrown out ... but for who?  Loathe to throw JVR to the wolves unless he's truly ready, and Weid/MBrown probably offering similarly little currently - F it, bring JVR in.  He looks hungry at Casey.

People here calling for May in.  But, I thought he was suspended by the Club for TWO matches.  Surely that doesn't include the Bye...??

Harmes was terrible all day and ANB has reverted to type with his kicking. Sparrow is too slow and Trac has lost a yard. And thanks May for your absence - it really made a difference. 

Harmes got hit hard by Maynard and was vomiting on the sidelines. 
 

I am actually really sick and tired of sides coming out and physically  hurting us and getting away with it. We don’t want suspensions, but Jesus give them some back. Protect your captain at least.

One match mate.

Really?  Thought it was two, but very happy (and relieved) to be corrected...!

He was poor before the hit.

Some of the decision-making 

 

taking players on ? (Lever)

 

the last 3 weeks have been profitable with the bookies

 

credit to the pies - high pressure and good footy (or better at least)

He was. My point was about us getting smashed by opposition and just coping it. I’m over it.

Agree Rivers should be in. Should have played today, not that it would have mattered. May in, obviously, unless the AFL decides he should have ten strokes of the rattan and 5 years' solitary in the clink. Sparrow has been mediocre all year - at best. Is he good enough? Omit.

The team looks dour, slow and lacking in imagination. They play like Goodwin's press conferences. They look, frankly, like a 10-14 side.

Think it was Sidebottom not Maynard.

The cupboard is bare.

So hard to win back to back flags, especially with a young group. The finals themselves take so much out of you, then you lose 4 - 5 weeks break in the off-season. Lots of players look drained, and not just the younger ones. I always wondered how long Ed Langdon could keep on being the running machine - starting to find out.

Hopefully the bye helps, but not holding my breath.

    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
