I heard that every television viewer from MFC  is turning off the sound for the whole game in protest for rubbish commentary .I also decided to get a texta for my screen as an added bonus, to ink out the maggots.

I have for some years willmoy. I don't get a commentator when I go to a game so why do I need one on the tv!

Huge test for Ben Brown. Out of form for some time and now very little tall support around him in a big game against a quality opponent.

Would love to back him in, but I've not seen much from him this year to warrant any faith.

If he doesn't fire this week he absolutely must play VFL next week to try and find some form before finals.

With two ruck men returning from injury surely Weed (or Tommo) must be the medical Sub

For future reference. When Goody says  this about Weid, "we're happy with how he's developing", it's code for "he's shown nothing at AFL level, and will be playing at Casey in the foreseeable future".

He hasn't shown much in his career alone. 

Just thought they would have used him as a forward alongside Brown.

All good, just means more opportunity for Bedford.

I think Goody made a great point today in his presser today in saying that a lot of people are saying our forward line is struggling but we have had 37 and 24 scoring shots in the last 2 weeks

I’m anticipating Gawn will play half the game forward.

Bailey Fritsch on the Bench,

Come on SWYL, you've been around long enough to know that the named team bears no resemblance to how they will line up on matchday.  Might as well just name a squad of 22 these days.

Toby Bedford deserves a run of games. I'm delighted he has retained his spot

Ditto.... as i said a few weeks back.  He's the Bowey of 2021 but in the front half.

Jake Melksham must be in some red hot form on the training track

Doesn't even play any footy last week and gets named 1st emergency. 

Kade Chandler has 29 and 5 snags and doesn't even get a nod on the Em list.

Poor fella lol

That's classic straight bat Goody though. Personally I don't think you judge how the tall forwards are performing based purely on total shots on goal. Don't think you'd find many who would say they're happy with Ben Brown's form and fact is he has barely contributed to the forward line even taking into account non-scoring efforts.

We need him in reasonable form by finals, if he can't find it this week then it's back to Casey IMO.

Showers and 13 degrees forecast perhaps not a night for Big men. Cats will ruck Stanley and Blicavs and Hawkins in the forward line pushing everyone in the back

30% chance of rain, with a possible fall of 0 to 0.4mm.

Don't think it's a factor.

Love the change of course on the talls front, and that they’re backing Toby in. The development of Bedford and Jordon has been a real highlight this year. Can’t wait for this one.

 I would suggest that much like the last two weeks, one of the rucks will rest forward so it’s really no different. Brown will have a much better time with Gawn in the goal square than he did with Mitch Brown and Weideman down there. 
 

Gawn lives rent free in Geelong’s head

 He'll be saying that when the Weed is 30 years old.

He doesn’t need to ‘fire’ - he needs to play his role. No one else can with TMac out. That is his starting expectation and pass mark.

Neither Jackson or Gawn are really forwards though, and I remember Gawn and Ben Brown mucking up contests for each other earlier this year. Our best lineup is BBB, TMac and then Jackson and Gawn, Goody has even talked about that being our preferred structure, so I don't think Brown having an, at best, part time forward as support sometimes is going to help much with him finding some form.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    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
