Responding to Mr Leg's question in the closed thread ....

I would say a combo of his experience and as a key member of the defensive crew he would be able to add that experience & input/feedback during the half time break and possibly from the bench in game.

Obviously rather see him out there but a good chance Tomo stays in me thinks.

There's an 8:35 pm flight to Melbourne. I suspect it will have a few players on board unless they want to get up for 7am flight tomorrow

I really don't rate the Lions as I feel they are missing any genuine hardness.  They seem to be the very definition of faux tough guys.  When the pressure is on they go to water and lose their composure and discipline.  A good, preofessional showing by us and we win by 6 goals.  If we are ruthless, a 10-12 goal win is on the cards.

This.

When it's red hot, they s&*t themselves. When it's white hot, their guys are in the beer fridge behind the hotdog stand.

The mail from some (not I) early on was Fritter and Viney were the two ins. I think there has been more chance May is just in the named to mess a touch with Brisbane's heads. There is no chance we would risk him if not 100% particularly with the form Tomo showed round 1.

Guaranteed the Lions will smash into Gawn. It has been a constant tactic over the last y times we have met. Port do it as well.

Melksham has to be the sub, he is the perfect footballer for it. He comes on when everyone else is exhausted, and uses his wonderful kicking skills and goal sense. 

Harmes to Rich.

Spargo, Chandler and Fritta to cause the Loins a massive headache.

Thanks very much for you help mate. Only tickets we could get are top their but above you guys at least, gate 8.

 

By red time in the last they'll all have left so I can bring kids down the bottom 😂

The kids can come down to the fence at the end to see our boys come over to clap us. I’ll take care of them. 😘

Brisbane has changed a little from when its version of a big day out was heading into the Valley for lunch at the TC Beirne's Department store

Still regard the Brisbane (ex-Bank) Hilton the best Hilton in the world - although those memories go back to my military days up to 1988. From distant memories, didn't the Valley have the greatest pub steak in Oz? Just cannot remember its name these days. Not as good as the Steak Stable in Ballarat, of course, but close. Fourex was the best beer to drink in Brisbane when the humidity rose to 3 shirts-a-day levels. As for the footy team in this modern era - sadly not as prominent or attractive as the Good Ol' Bloods. Always fun to go to Albert Park footy ground. I think the Dees are going to take some of that inherited blood from the Lions, tonight. Viney will be a raging bull looking for targets and misfits. We are going to kill 'em.

Silly by the club.

If there is a hint of doubt that he might not get up then just simply rule him out. 

No point doing further damage, especially with calves as they can become a recurring injury especially when you hit your 30's

I don’t get this at all. If there is any doubt why would you risk it. Seems they’re leaving it up to the player too. Of course May is going to want to play. I’ll be furious if he pings his calf.

Do you think a 6ft 3 130kg bearded beast will pass as a kid?

Reminds me of when they let Petracca make the call last year against Freo even though he was crook as dog in bed with the flu. 

Was MIA the whole game when we could have played a fit and healthy player.

Especially on the hard deck at the Gabba.

Troy Chaplin could not be less convincing that May will play. 
 

We clearly won’t risk him. We are just toying with Brisbane. They have to plan around May.

You really think that the Lions coaching dept will be in a mad panic when they see Tomlinson run out instead of May?

Every coach will tell you that late changes have zero impact on the opposition's game plan.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
