PREGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood


Demonland

Recommended Posts

All the sick and injured players were named and of their 4 emergencies, 2 of the 4 players played today. Only Markov and McInness realistically available just as JJ & Taj didn't play today. 

Doubt there will be any late changes.

No mcstay. That's good.

I know he'd be underdone but we've struggled against mutiple talls, most notably against the bombers.

Cox and Cameron will split ruck and forward- and both push forward at times - mihocek plays tall, as does Johnson, so a fit mcstay would stretch us.

I'll be curious who tomo plays on. Cameron and Cox?

Mihocek is brilliant one on one and  tomo isn't. But I wouldn't mind seeing tomo take mihocek.

Similar size, and mihocek gets on his bike, which suits tomo more than wrestling with Cox and Cameron 30 mertres our from goal.

May is s much better option for the two rucks.

If petty, who we are really missing,  plays forward when he returns after the bye, there's a spot for tomo down back. Love to seem him take it.

He is moving more like he did before his knee, much more agile than last season, has a great tank and is a lovely field kick. So he has a good shot at it.

Really hope James Jordon isn't the sub.

In all games that he's started off as a sub he's made zero impact coming on. And that's purely because he not a impact at all. He's a role player who's also limited at times

Woewodin at least comes in and provides some fresh energy and zip into the team.

Look I’m probably going to sound whingey (dilligaf) but if you cancel sportsman’s nights because 2 of your players have the flu, they should have to pass a rigrorous medical including respiratory illness testing

 

I mean what kind of mid 1800s infectious diseases circus is the afl running when CLEARLY INFECTIOUS Collingwood players can spread the flu amongst the oppo

You'd think if Woey was in as a sub, there would be a bit more of a build up. I imagine his dad would be presenting the jersey, or at least hanging around the club.

JJ as sub, Woey as emergency.

We won’t and should not debut a kid as the sub. Especially the son of a former champion. It’s just not right.

The late teams we’re probably due to a number of Pies players waiting for negative COVID tests. They are not held back for normal illness. 

I would be amazed if they can play out a full game. We should walk all over them in the 2nd half. 

Add to that the Perth factor and you might be right.

In a no horse**** move, Goody appears to be keeping Mr Ed well 'stabled' on the named interchange for the start of the King's B'Day thriller. Brayden Maynard was disappointed as there was no duck on the filth dinner menu. Brayden will be offered a serving of humble pie,         cold.

It's unbelievable how many posts in this thread are about who will or won't play for Collingwood. 

WGAF. 

Two years ago we lost to them and they had about 6 of their star players out up in Sydney.. 

This game will come down to our pressure, ability to execute the fundamentals consistently most of the game and ability to win contests all over the ground. Regardless of who is in or out. 

We owe this feral club a beating. And it will all depend on what mindset we bring to the game. They are not invincible, but I trust their ability to perform more than us atm like most do. But it will have nothing to do with outs. 

Port beat us with a VFL level forward line by bringing a mindset and application all game. Hawthorn the same against Brisbane. 

Completely in our hands.

I was at that game in Sydney. My son’s first game. Fitting really. 

The table of expectation now turns and we can just play some tough footy.

I always thought this would be a game around two specifics...  respective defences... and 4 qtrs of run and pressure.

If we come to play ( seriously) we should have the tank for 4 qtrs.

Collingwood 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 maybe not so much.

If we can be a least evens at 3/4 time i suspect those collywobbly legs will get very heavy ...for some.

Interesting game ahead.

Go Dees

    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
