Would rathered Harmes for Milkshake! Spargo extremely lucky

Think you should throw in Hunt and Hibberd 

can only think each had specific goals or run with roles to shut down specific players. Not sure that held with our pour conversion into scores or the ease the ball came out of our 50

still think this side should beat the blues

go dees do it Saturday just for me!

My initial response was FMD ……. but  I took a deep breath and reflected on last weekend.  It was perhaps the best game of footy for the season, huge stakes between two top teams, enormous pressure and some important breaks went against us.  We lost by only a few points, with lots of upside to the level we know that we can play at (eg. goal kicking and delivery to our forwards).  I’m okay with no changes in those circumstances.

Dees by 7 points after almost being run over in the last quarter. 

I'm predicting a similar outcome to the Freo match. Dees by 6 goals and change

Dees by 29 points after some wasteful kicking for goal. I am not a praying man but I am praying that we are seeking an extra goal kicking forward to play beside BB, Fritta and JVR next year.!!!!

What's the chances of a shock Weid comeback at Milkshake's expense ?

 

Surely Goodwin is not that foolish? In the eyes of so many supporters and members, he'd lose his job.

Maybe goody thought a sneaky late change of the Weid in is better than Thurs night, in case Sam reads Demonland?!

Putting aside the “one week at a time”…..

Obviously we need to win out last two games to finish 2nd. In addition we need the Swans to beat Collingwood this Sunday, the other factor is percentage. 
Sydney play Collingwood and the Saints, Saints are still a chance to play finals although it seems unlikely. I think we can beat Brisbane next week but it may not be as easy as it was after the bye. This Saturday night is our chance to put some space between our percentage and that of Sydney’s. Leigh Mathew’s said during the week he didn’t like discussing percentage with his players as he thought it detracted from the task at hand, I thought players were better than that. Break it down in it’s simplest form, aim to win each quarter by 4 goals. Cripps or no Cripps we have them covered. Time to start handing out some lessons again. 
 

Dees by 70 +

I didn't expect it to happen either 'mania. The point I was getting at ( and I stated it explicitly later) is that I don't like the idea of going into the finals with only one tall forward. Unfortunately, unless they were going to give the kid ( JVR) a go we have no options except Weid.

However, tonight's selection confirms that that is the way we are going

Wouldn't matter if he did read Demonland, '64, he's already had thousands of treatises, reports, theses, intense and widespread analysis including measured advice and fault correcting suggestions (ad nauseum) from the foundation of the football club - US!

Such extensive contributions to his onfield well-being have so far been wilfully ignored or 'placed into the too-hard basket'.

 It does not auger well, I am afraid; still, who are we to consider alternatives?

Let’s hope if Gawn is forward more that he fixes his goal kicking. 

Not much point in having him there to kick points. 

Gawn has a career goalkicking record of 86 goals 78 behinds and this season has kicked 11 goals 13 behinds.  After the Swans game he was on 11 goals 9 behinds.  By comparison Petracca has kicked 16 goals 27 behinds.  Gawn's last couple of games have had some average shots, but over the season he's not far off 50/50.  If Tracc had been anywhere near that we win at least two more games, and top 2 is locked away.

    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
