Also can’t outrun his shadow. Punxsatawny Phil ain’t the answer 

Is 'Punxsatawny Phil' Laurie? Interesting because he was said to be an elite runner when drafted.

Good 3km time, but no speed. Needs to build repeat speed, repeat efforts and size to go on ball where endurance comes in to play. If he could start playing midfield at Casey he’d really offer our midfield something, but as a half forward he’s just an inferior version of Spargo, we can’t carry 2 of those types

Rivers hasn't rediscovered form and we really need some more dedicated small defenders. Not sure Bowey is the exact need but closer than what Rivers is giving.

My feeling is that Hunt is not effectively limiting his opponent, at the same time as not delivering any counter-attack. So my gut says we have to push Brayshaw back to half-back and bring Harmes back to our midfield.

Melksham has been given his tryout and not delivered. His consistency tells the story.

Where does that leave it...

Out: Rivers, Hunt, Melksham.

In: Bowey, Harmes, and whoever has a solid body and wants to prove they can fight and scrap in contests up forward.

I think ANB has had enough chances this year. So much momentum is lost when he finally gets the ball after fumbling. My only concern is that Chandler and Bedford has has a few opportunities and never really grabbed them. I wonder if Laurie is the best option. Seems a good kick and sure ball handler.

Bedford took a few of his opps when given the chance.  Some of his pick ups of loose ground balls then finish for goal were stunning with limited TOG.

Why does everybody want Hunt out? Kept Ginnivan quiet. I think everybody is overreacting here. It wasn't a bad lose. We lost by a goal. Gawn missed a sitter and Jordon's holding the ball decision was a joke.

Only 1 change Harmes in Sparrow out

I got ridiculed for calling for ANB to be dropped this week. His defensive efforts fall short for what a liability he is in attack. How many times did he get caught with the ball or fumbled?

Enough is enough. We need to take advantage when we have midfield dominance. 

Out: ANB, Rivers

In: JVR, Bowey

Hibbo was putrid tonight, but has been good most of  the year.

ANB roles is one of defence. He plays a role that allows Trac to roam forward. I’m not sure there is anyone else that can do it. Even when he stuffs it up with the ball, he’s a role player.

JJ plays the wing role well, but he’s too slow on the outside and Ed was getting schooled by Sidebottom on the other.

I would be very tempted to target one of Spargs and Kozzy for Chandler. They have too often let us down defensively this year. Cannot reward mediocrity. 
 

I thought  it was the non playing 23 that was supposed to keep us honest.

ANB 22 pressure acts, our third-most behind Oliver and Viney.

I reckon that's going to keep him in the side.

However, ANB, Pickett, Spargo and Sparrow combined for 0 tackles inside forward 50. Bearing in mind Fritsch and Brown also laid 0 tackles inside 50, that's not going to win us games of football.

Lever only played 85% TOG. Would not at all be surprised if he's carrying an injury.

Meanwhile just as Hibberd and Hunt both regress back into the form that made us all suspect neither was best 22 this year, we've flipped Joel Smith back yet again to a forward at Casey.

Quantify ANB's 22 pressure acts and subtract the number of times he fumbled or got caught with the ball.

ANB fails the eye test. He's been a liability up forward for a while. Needs time at Casey.

I just want to see reward and accountability. Reward for the guys at Casey that are performing in an undefeated team. Accountability for players in the ones that are underperforming to keep them honest and have that competition for spots.Unfortunately with another bye this week for Casey I think there will be minimal change again. Naming players in the squad or as a sub isn’t enough for me. Get them in and give them an opportunity.
In : Kade “ viagra “ Chandler. He has been dead set stuff this year. 
Out : ANB. Been underwhelming for weeks and I think Chandler could do his role but hurt more offensively. Possibly Bowey for Rivers.

Ben Brown had a season high 16 possessions last night and kicked 2 goals but he is such a massive liability when the ball is in his hands in open play, on the ground and defensively. I don’t think he is accretive to us winning.

I am not saying Weideman is the answer but if TMac was fit, Brown wouldn’t be in my side.

I was on Jordons wing all night, we worked his guts out and one of our better players I thought. Actually was looking to attack most of the time

Worked his [censored] off and his second third and fourth efforts weee great.

JVR has to come in until TMac is ready. Maxy/Dogga can drift forward, but they are not forwards.

Lever played on Ginnivan most of the night and destroyed him

Hunt was ok

If Smith does well at Casey, he might replace Melksham

Harmes for Jordon - his knee is stuffed - painkillers aren’t cutting it for him

Hunt was on McCreery. He should have contributed WAY more to us offensively given his matchup.

Correct. We need another bigger body in the forward line whoever it maybe. Can't just have Brown as sole big guy. Max and in particular Jackson have trouble playing forward although Max has performed on odd occasions. Other than about 15 mins in the GF Jacko has done next to nothing. All the hype on him is highly overrated IMO.

If anyone saw the Viney interview after the game have look at Brown in the background. Can hardly walk. 

BBB was enormous last night. If people are expecting him to do all the donkey work in the air as our lone KPF, and provide defensive pressure, they are kidding themselves.

Our mid/small forwards are letting us down. And if the Unicorn is agile enough to play as a mid as some say, then he's capable enough of applying forward pressure.

    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
