FMD !!!

I'll add to my above comment - for reasons of clarity.

Weid has had his chances but has shown nothing to inspire confidence.

However, having said said that, I hope he plays a blinder !!!!

And .....who knows ...... him being the number one ... the one and only KPF may be just the fillip he needs to get his [censored] into gear!!

Bit of deja vu there uncle!  Wish i had $100 for everytime i've read this about the Weid

I don't. Except for the odd moment or match, sitings of our premiership form have been few and far between. Too many players down on form/injured/out. If we win more than one match in the finals I'll be pleasantly surprised.

We saved our absolute best for September last year. Why can't we do that again this year?

BB has been proppy since he limped off at half time in the Adelaide game. We've done well to manage him through the last few games. I don't know if I'm more worried about him missing or that Weid is taking his place.

Going by the chatter about BBB this week, that he can't fully train and will always have a tender knee. (He isn't a Buddy.)

I think we need a stable forward line, going into the final series. If it functions well without him , I can see us not picking BBB.

He's performed better with a dickie knee than Weideman has produced in his whole career. BBB was very good last week. If Weid comes close to emulating what BBB does, I'll be shocked.

Eek...

Would have been happy with the Weideman/Brown combo but Weideman as the sole key forward doesn't fill me with much confidence at all unfortunately.

Clunk it at the highest point/or bust the pack and allow Pickett and Spargo to go to work

Agree, has to have a one grab mark.

I can also see ANB and Viney, taking some time deep in the forward area and getting some snaps, from the front and centre positioning under Weid.

BBB has been asked to do too much. Little wonder he couldn't get up. Our rucks were pathetic up forward last week. If they don't contribute again, can't see us winning.

Have some faith.

He is a big guy, gets lots of support from the club, has a good kick. Be great if we can get some ball into him quickly and allow him to get out back or some separation when on his lead.

A combo of Mitch Brown and either Tomlinso or Van Rooyen on the other hand!!

REALLY LAST CHANCE HOTEL FOR WEEDS I HAVE TO SAY

I'd be more confident if they used Tomlinson back (the backline worked well with him last week) and brought Petty forward.  Petty's better than Weid, even forward.

Gawn just has to be played as a permanent forward for this game

Go well Sam. 

The fast pace of matches at Marvel might help him. Coupled with the fact he will be the primary target in F50.

I was always sceptical of the multiverse theory Kev... until now!

Yes would much rather see this.  The Doggies have one of the shortest forward line ups.  No need for Petty down back this week if they bring Tomo as a late in (subject to Petty / team spending time training with him as a forward?).

    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
