In: Viney, Fritsch (I hope)

Out: Laurie, Pickett

I'm thinking this. Probably have May rest another week, especially given how well Tommo played.

Some serious selection headaches coming up though and isn't that just grand.

  • If May is available, then sadly it will have to be Tommo that misses, though he'd travel to Bne as an emergency.
  • If only one of Viney or Fritsch is available then he would replace Kozzie. If Kozzie escapes suspension then Laurie misses.
  • If both are available available then both Kozzie and Laurie miss. If Kozzie isn't suspended, and both Viney and Fritsch are available then it's Laurie and Melksham and some other unlucky player gets moved to sub.

I don't think Salem will be available next week.

It'd be good to give Laurie another game. Though he only had 4 possessions, he was involved in a sweet bit of play in the third quarter, exactly 5 seconds after I told my brother "I haven't seen Laurie much, I think he'll be subbed" ony to be rebuked "You mean that kid". But with quality returning players, we can't really do anything else.

In Fritsch out Laurie

Pickett will cop a fine.

No need to rush Viney and May.

Harmes is the real worry for me to be honest. 

He started the game straight into the guts but was barely sighted at times.

With Viney out and given the opportunity for more midfield minutes he only finished with 15 disposals. Seemed to fumble a lot last night and had little influence around the contests.

When Viney is fit and ready to then he comes straight back in. I think Harmes is most vulnerable here to lose his spot to him.

What?!

I have said it through the pre season I am out on my own on Demonland with my views on Hunter and he did nothing last night to convince me he should be playing in front of some of our young players or even Harmes on last nights form. And if Salem is fit I am definitely playing him in front of Hunter, just my thoughts. 
 

I don’t expect Hunter to be dropped but I would.

Sparrow too. It’s odd being judgemental for a team that started like that but that’s selection with 4 of our best 8 players out.

Harmes had 42 pressure acts which is exceptional. Next best was Kossie with 30. Your views on Harmes are no longer objective.

Saw this about five seconds after I saw that Daniel Rich had eighteen (18!) rebound 50s, about 40% of the Lion's total. I'd say Harmes has a definite job to do. I'd also argue that 'negating half-forward' has always been his destiny and we shouldn't be worrying about making him a midfielder.

And now I'm going to mention his long kick to Fritsch at the pivotal moment of the 21 grand final. Why? Why not - do I need a reason? 😄

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
