Choco Williams needs to get stuck into the kicking training again. Our accuracy has been horrible the last 5 matches and is basically the difference now.

Isn’t every one just thrilled that we gave up a home game to travel interstate?

Geelong got momentum from their crowd and played to their strengths at home. We gave this game up.

I absolutely hate it. Melbourne homes games at the G only. If we want to be taken seriously start acting that way.

We aren’t dropping our best forward from tonight, Champ.

In: Brown, Bowey, Tomlinson, Oliver (worth a punt), Harmes (sub)

Out: Chandler, Spargo, Jordon, Petty

Smith sucks people in, he's a flashy play or two a game, but can't play footy

Re Joel Smith-I wasn't sucked in AD. I saw the excellent work he did in the first half with his marks, contesting, knocking on, handballs when the rest of the. team was struggling. He actually showed leadership with his efforts. He was quieter in the second half but one of our better players overall who contested hard all night and was effective. In my view he is a very important player for us.

We can bring it back to Melbourne but it will end up at Marvel. We won't get another game at the G

Whatever we do, can we actually have a tactical sub that can impact the game with some power. Harmes (who I'm not a massive fan of) would've been a better choice tonight given the conditions.

Yeh not a fan of a small forward being the sub.

Out: Petty, Spargo, Chandler, ANB  

In: Tomlinson, Woewodin, Harmes, Laurie 

Angus, Lingers, Kozzy all had bad games and have been off their best, lingers in particular for a while. 

So tired of us picking blokes on reputation over an actual performance given to the coaches, dropping Tomlinson has proved to be an absolute shocker as most of us thought it was. For Petty to stroll back in and serve that up was horrendous.

Fine by me. There will be 25,000 Melbourne supporters there, who can give our boys some momentum and belief.

They aren’t getting that playing in front of 5,000 impartial footy fans in Port and Adelaide jumpers in Alice.

Hopefully Brown has a good run for Casey this week. Would like to see him back in asap, would help the small forwards as well.

I'm still miffed at Neal Bullen but he won't get dropped.

 

He has to be dropped. Absolutely a liability. May pressure well but useless when has the ball.

Tomlinson back into defense. Petty forward. 

JJ out.  Bowey in. 

Spargo not the sub. 

Hibbo to play on Greene. 

Do we need to give Gawn a week off? He seems cooked.

I assume Clarry won’t play. Obviously if fit he is in for literally anyone that isn’t Viney as I would kill for another player with clean ball handling skills in the contest.

Not sure who goes in and out as we never make a lot of changes.

I'd look to bring Oliver and Bowey in. Would like a proper key forward in as well, Brown being the most likely candidate but not sure how likely that would be.

Jordon, Spargo and Chandler all in danger of being dropped while Hibberd may need further resting and Petty looks underdone.

Will probably end up being Oliver in, Jordon out.

Brown in and forward, Petty back to Casey to be replaced by Tomlinson (should never have been dropped in the first place).

Brown needs to prove himself at Casey. He’s banged up and immobile. He doesn’t solve our issues IMO. 

TMac is who we desperately miss. A tall who can play higher up and take contested marks. We’ve looked awful up forward ever since he stuffed his foot in 2022. 

This is a role Petty can play well and it’s what they tried to get Smith to do.

Fine theory, but this game would be played at Docklands not the G, and would cost the club $500k and mean we needed to find a new sponsor rather than the NT govt

    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

    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.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
