PREGAME: Rd 02 vs Brisbane

Recommended Posts

The changes make sense. Obviously assuming May is unquestionably fit. If there is any doubt he should be a late out for Tomlinson. Otherwise, it is so tough for Tommo. It’s more than just he did nothing wrong, he was genuinely good and would be playing for most other sides this week.

Laurie out for Viney makes sense too. He’s had a taste and will be ready for another crack if/when we need a replacement.

Will be very tough once Salem and Pickett are ready to return. On last week’s game, McVee can’t be dropped.

Thanks for the info mate. We were planning on just rocking up and buying tickets 🤷🏽‍♂️ we have a country family membership but not sure that'll help with a Gabba game. Either way we'll be there

 

With the country family membership you get one free ticket (per family member) to an interstate game in which Melbourne is playing. This is that one game?

Regardless, try to get to the ground really early and if you have an issue PM me and I’ll see if my DA BFF can do something to help.

Terrible ins 😅

Gotta feel for Tomlinson, he played so well and deserved another go.

Fingers crossed May's calf doesn't blow up.

Tommo can play fwd too. Could have been Sub if May or Tmac struggle.

McVee and Chandler I'd say, sadly... though I worry about Harmes at times but I'm just glad I'm not a coach or selection committee trying to figure it out lol

Nah Chandler has been in good form all summer even in the practice game.

It's Sparrow for me. If he has another nothing game then I'm sorry, he's my immediate out for Pickett when available.

Yeah I reckon they’ll give May till the last minute and Thommo will be traveling emergency and a possible late in.

Melksham the sub again.

I smell a late change with May not being risked…

No insider info, just a faint whiff of footy dept nonsense.

31. Tight calf. Friday night in Brisbane in March.

100%. Intel or not, it is round 2 - it just doesn’t make sense to rush a 30+ bloke back after a very recent calf injury (especially after his replacement played so well last week)

Feels like he has played a LOT more. Exciting future ahead for this bloke.

Right? That’s the first thing I said at banner when I saw the 50 and the #35. Feels closer to 100.

Need a big night from the local Brissy Demons as the Lion players are gonna come after HP big time i reckon.

Likely to get pretty willing early me thinks and he'll be a target throughout the match.

Hope the boys are mentally prepped for this to happen

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
