It’s either that or our game is now more transparent… 🤷‍♂️😊

The dees must have missed that memo.

For example bb is simultaneously a chance if being selected and having his leg amputated.

I'm guessing Coll applied for an extension given the illness at the club. 

Not much point listing the team on a Friday or Saturday if there are lots of changes come Sunday/Monday.

Other than supporter interest it probably doesn't matter much when teams are published.

I can't stand tom Morris.

One, his voice shots me.

Two, he is clueless about football and can't separate gossip with an analysis of the game.

Constantly looking for the controversial take that create noise.

So that knocks out another media optioon- tbe Sunday footy preview or whatever it is called on sen, because it is now co hosted by Morris- in addition to him being on the Saturday crunch time.

Insufferable.

Makes Sam McClure look like Dennis commetti

LOl!  They are a guessing game at the best of times!!

If we can't get 'em Monday we'll never get 'em.
With half their best players missing a win for us will mean nothing more than the 4pts.
A loss would be humiliating.

Assuming Adam Tomlinson plays tomorrow - Hibberd for Bowey the change, he has a great opportunity to establish himself with May and Lever and put himself in the frame for an elusive flag.  He has the trial by fire with McKay, Cox/Mihocek then Hawkins/Cameron but if he can weather the storm then he can put MFC and himself in a great position.

100%
If he finds his early 2021 form, it not only gives him a chance to get the flag he is after, it solves many of our problems as it will allow Petty to play forward. 
It really makes us a better side if he can fill that second tall role and allow Lever to play third tall interceptor.

The potential outs for Collingwood are frustrating. Only because a win means…

”Demons get the wood over depleted Pies”

(despite us having four of our ‘21 GF players out through injury)

Or in the case of a loss..

”Classy Pies have the tools to dig deep”

I dont care how they sell it....  how they package it....

The scoreboard will show a win....and a win is 4pts.  

That's all we need to concern ourselves with.

Everything else is irrelevant. 

4pts to us is 4pts not to them.. Finito

Go Dees

Pies have De Goey, Sidebottom, Howe and possibly Elliott missing.

Who else is missing from them?

Yep and we have Oliver, Petty, Tom Mac, BBB and Bowey.

I would say we have more important players out, our best mid and all 3 experienced key forwards.

true… but let’s not forget we’re also missing Oliver, Petty, Bowie and you could add tmac and / or brown to that. yes they’re looking like missing more but we are not full rat power either.

Lipinski is said to be playing - his first game this year at any level so very much lacking match practice.

Mc Stay also said to be playing - hasn't played for two months.

J Daicos, Cox, N Daicos and Maynard all have apparently trained this weekend.

So all the speculation about them missing games due to colds/COVID will probably be unfounded.

They may not miss this game but that is 8 players that will be missing or not in tip top shape.

 

It will be seriously depleted of talent, experience and form.  All this must affect their system and fast ball movement.  There should be lots of turnovers by them.

And too much will be left to too few.

When you put it like that, it’s fair to say that Collingwood will never be as gettable all year as they will be tomorrow.

Whether we can take full advantage of it is another matter.

We have not been the best club at beating sides that are supposed to be suffering from adversity

But will they be cherry ripe ?

Collingwood have been average the last three weeks. They beat Carlton easily on the scoreboard but inaccurate kicking cost Carlton, should have been a lot lot closer. North got within 5 goals or thereabouts and West Coast were only two goals down at one stage in the third quarter. They’re just going along and are tired. I think they’ll drop a few games now, including tomorrow. There are no excuses from us.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
