Again we play Spargo as sub, following a poor performance at Casey.

He is a one position player who failed to have any impact when sub against Cats.

Is cool under pressure and can set up a goal, but I thought the sub should be a versatile player who can have an immediate impact. I don’t Charlie as that but obviously FD do.

I would have given Melk his 99th game for the Dees as sub, following his 4 goals for Casey last week.

The sub won't be announced until Sunday. You may be misreading the post that references Spargo as the sub who played last round and is not selected in the final squad...but he can still be chosen to be the sub. (Could the AFL find a more complicated way to announce teams?)

Happy BBrown is back. Not happy JVR dropped. Would like to see them play together and ditch Smith.

Nup Im in the opposite camp Van Rooyen has done little since his 3 goal cameo vs Richtank, and I like what Smitb has done so far!!

Honestly all the channel 7 callers are awful. Darcy and BT by far the worst.

Only one I think is OK is Hamish Mclachlan. He's more natural and doesn't force things like all the others.

Side note does anyone else find that Alister Nicholson sounds so much like Jordan Lewis.

Fox footy callers are so much better. Whately and Hudson are pros

BT is terrible. Thinks it's about him. It ain't. Darcy is a goose. McLachlan not so bad but has some terrible turns of expression like "such and such and change". Hudson sounds like a hyperactive 12 year-old. Whately is OK. Underwood dreadful nasal tones and talks in the cliches she heard growing up (like Eddie McGuire who was a shadow of Lou Richards) Wish Cometti was still at the mike.

I reckon BBB in for JVR is nothing more than the club trialling the BBB, smith and fritta combo for 2 or 3 weeks 

JVR will be back in soon…..

Glad to have BBB back but puzzled at JVR's ousting unless he is being rested. With Brown there JVR could have played with more freedom. Hopefully he is a smokey late inclusion.

I'm only mucking around. Playing devils advocate against peoples hope. I like taking a position and being proven wrong. I don't give us much hope this year. Happy to be wrong. As for Collingwood, they were terribly undermanned against us. Replace that Finn McGuiness or whoever he is that replaced Ginnivan and we probably lose. But it was a good win. I was very happy.

Were they though? Let's interrogate this.

Minus Sidebottom, De Goey and Howe. We were minus Oliver (best player in the league), Petty and Bowey. 

Not a world apart really.

Feels like the best chance of having a couple of functioning key fowards play together is with Brown + JVR, but we like to complicate things

Maybe, but this way we get a look at Brown and Smith together. Smith should compensate for BB's inability at ground level.

Just sparing the competition the dominant forward line of a fit Ben Brown, a hungry and angry JVR and an electrifying JSmith. I for one am looking forward to seeing that.

would be interesting 

but with a ruck fwd it might be too tall

Well it has confused me. With sub after his name, I assumed he was sub.

I think therefore that Melk will be sub.

Tomlinson must be livid and rightly so.

Again, we have too many small forwards.

The correct change would have been to keep JVR in and drop one of ANB, Pickett, or Chandler.

We did drop Spargo though. I think the balance is right now as usually one of those 3 are on the bench.

JVR has to earn his spot like everyone else, Smith worked hard to get here and has played for 2 weeks, he keeps his spot.

JVR is just a kid and kids get dropped. We aren’t a teaching hospital anymore - we are in it to win it. 

As I have said through out the year - JVR is promising but he needs development and I just don’t think he is going to get that in the AFL. 

He may push out one of smith and brown and I think he will play more games but I think our best team has him outside the 22 this year.

    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.

    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
