What was the point of getting Schache we could have just kept Weiderman, we invest in another premier ruckman & yet win the hit outs but don’t dominate the clearances… is it structure or players not working hard enough 

Weideman indicated he wanted to go, so we managed a trade for Schache to cover for Weideman.

Which was no surprise as he got absolutely no continuity at senior level. He’s been doing well at Essendon. A change of scenery was definitely good for him. I’m not sure he was going to progress any further at Melbourne. 
 

I am still mad that we gave up Hunt for nothing.

So you want to replace our entire forward line with what? Casey’s forward line, so you can then complain about them?

Seems unlikely to be a successful decision.

Jeez pf we could have won both games with an ounce of luck or some decent umpiring you can’t write off the whole team. Also based on Casey form the only three deserving players on the weekend were Tomlinson, Schache and Brown.!!!

Out of that lot I'd drop Spargo, rather give Chandler more opportunity, Nibbler is doing his job imo. I do agree Tmac looks cooked probably give BB one more chance.

Pickett seems to be second guessing himself as are alot of our players not taking the first option and stopped playing on instinct.

WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

While we are at it let’s drop Petracca. I’m sick to death of him missing goals. Trash player. Directly to Casey and would trade for a third rounder.

Never rated Jayden, so I'm comfortable with it.

I reckon I’m just sentimental because he was one of my favorites and I feel badly for him because he was so close to winning a flag, and never wanted to leave the club. 

I know rationally that he’s just an ok player and would make no difference to our team currently. 
But watching him play for that abomination of a side, is very sad.

Will at least stop us dump kicking into the forward line.

Milkshake stared in our last gasp victory against the blues last year. 

Our form seemed better when he was in the side early in the year.

I'm Sold. Milkshake is our Talisman haha

Out of all the players that left last year it's Hunty the one that I feel for the most. Baker or Weids I couldn't give a stuff about.

Had he not done his ankle we would be talking about a premiership player.

Unfortunately he's now playing for a trash WAFL club which to me just doesn't look or feel right after all the [censored] years he went through.

How long does Goodwin last if he loses to Voss?

 

Depends on  whether Melbourne again wants to look like a football version of a banana republic. Thankfully those days appear to be over.

I really feel for Milkshake. In the finals last year he was essentially our main man down forward and his main strength - excellent kicking - just disappeared. He could have been the key.

Carlton love to attack through the corridor and quickly, they also like to switch the play (our Achilles’ heels).

We need to study the Blues vs Lions game earlier in the year. Brisbane denied them the corridor at all costs and so must we.

I've read this four times. I might be misunderstanding your point, but don't these two statements contradict each other?

An additional tall defender must come in. I guess it has to be one of Tomlinson (most likely) or Smith or Schache. I'm not a huge fan of any of those gents, but Lever can't play on McKay or Curnow. As has been said repeatedly, he's not a particularly good one on one defender. He needs to be the third man up/inteceptor.

Found myself screaming “YOU’RE NOT THAT GUY” at Harmes on too many occasions last Saturday 

Apart from the goal that Fritta gifted him everything else was error ridden. 

Having another look at the replay, ANB gave him a run for his money as well. Both liabilities.

The Chandler and McVee experiments are probably over.

They aren’t experiments they have shown enough, maybe they need tests but both of them have had impacts across their lines

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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.
