PREGAME: Rd 22 vs Carlton


Demonland

Recommended Posts

The Demons return to the MCG in Round 22 as they take on the rampaging Carlton Blues who have won 7 on trot and would love to take another Top 4 scalp on their way back into AFL finals. Who comes in and who goes out?

Moonboots are precautionary although they look awful.

Fingers crossed on Petty. Maybe just a week or 2 hopefully.

Healy on kayo, looking at it on replay thought  it could well be  the dreaded syndesmosis. ie 8 weeks. Anyway fingers crossed it’s not .. he’s a big cog in the wheel for us.

Just now, whatwhat say what said:

there's no match-up for tomlinson at the baggers so can't see him coming in

OUT: petty, harmes
IN: oliver

smith forward and hibb comes into the 22

Yeah I think i’m with you. Tempting to give grundy one last go though isn’t it.

For anyone else you’d be suspicious of a syndesmosis so I’m not surprised job for life Gerard went with that. But with Petty only just recovering from the sprained ligament in his foot that has to be the suspicion too.

Either way serious foot/ankle injuries rarely get back inside 6 weeks. Full fit inside 5 would be a good result.

Hibberd was quality after he came on for Petty. Definitely deserves a full game next week against the dangerous Carlton smalls.

Thought he was average. A poor panicked handball gifted the Roos a goal.

JJ’s second half probably keeps him in but geez if Oliver is cherry ripe and can dominate the midfield with Viney and others then do we go a double change in the middle and take out a crash and bash mid and bring in Woey, Spargo, Laurie or even Moniz-Wakefield? All who would bring either speed or polish. 

We had 6 inside mids today: Viney, Gus, Tracc, Sparrow, Harmes, JJ. We really only need 5. 

I don’t think he’s quite ready but I’d love to see the Money man Wakefield

Oliver for Harmes seems a reasonable bet.

A few options for Petty. We could try Grundy. We could flip Smith back to the forward line and bring Tomlinson back. We could go back to the well with Brown, but I doubt that will happen. A lot of food for thought. A shame Casey didn't play this weekend.

I think Viney 71% gametime was part of the idea there.

Loading up on mids lets us run out games strongly, but it means we also start slowly because we’re slow.

    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

    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
