I reckon Joel Smith does a defensive role on Moore. Try and get a match up between JVR and Frampton. Moore will take Fritsch. I’d back our boys in, and they’d struggle against Max.

Moore will slaughter Smith, it wouldn’t even be a contest. Seriously, if we have a one on one with Moore as our only option, kick it along the ground and await the contest, at least gives a chance to try and set up the defence behind. If it’s in the air then it will be coming back faster than it went in.

All of the bed wetter 'supporters' that want to talk up Collingwood and take pot shots at our lads will hopefully learn a bit from the WCE match. No team is invincible and Pies aren't superheros. 

Don't believe anyone has claimed that. Hyperbole much?

Injuries also to Hoskin-Elliott and McCreery although I'm not sure of the severity. 

De Goey gone also helps. 

Collingwood showed weakness today and whilst I said less than 24 hours ago that I don't think we could win on current form, I think we csn give them a shake if we bring serious heat all game.

Anyone looking for a ticket? Decided not to come over for the game and have a spare. You’ll have to sit with my family…. there’s always a downside. 

I almost coughed up a small part of my 7+ marble score, porterhouse steak when I read that ha ha.

If Collingwood can be challenged by a rabble West Coast side fielding half a WAFL outfit and down to two on the bench, then this game is right there for us if we're good enough.

But let's not get sucked into the "De Goey's out" stuff. They bat deep. It's obviously a big loss but we need to focus on the 23 they play, not the ones they don't.

De Goosey will get 4 or more weeks for that.

Just from AFL HQ ,instead of suspending De Gone they are altering the Rules of the Brownlow snd awarding it to him plus he is free to play for the rest of the season. Eddie would like to thank the AFLfor interfering and allowing natural justice to take place !!

DeGoey, goin’, gone!

we can win if we bring our defensive game.  That and stopping the poor turnover skills under no pressure.

 

oh, and kick straight

Has there even been a hint that Petty will be ready this week?

Unfortunately Bowey will miss a week (or two) with concussion.  Maybe  Hibbo (or Disco if Hibbo doesn't get up).

Harmes will be offered 2-3 for what a couple of Cats were not even cited.  Oliver back according to coach.

Otherwise probably no change.  Goody said that Smith provided a point of difference so will probably stay (unless BB has a pearler at Casey).

I reckon Smith looked pretty comfortable, given the time he has experienced out of the big-League game. He is a point of difference, as well, with some precursors suggesting usefulness and linkages up forward. JJ should come in and could replace the injured Bowey, rotating with Brayshaw in a half-back to midfield roving, clearance and attacking first line. Disco could play tall in the backline, as well, and much depends on the availability of Petty in this regard, to free up Lever. I'd like to see Chandler in a more 'roving' role through midfield-forward - Kozzie must stay forward forever dangerous, whilst key forwards (ie: JVR and Smith - perhaps Sparrow) lead to space as targets, and link up with midfielders/flankers.

I still wonder if Oliver will actually play

This week on the track will tell us a lot I guess Roost. The day before the game marks 23 days since he injured his hammie.

No. Still listed as 2-3 weeks in injury report and no mention of him by anyone in media.

Bit like us playing Carlton, just getting the job done without breaking the bank

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    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
