Honestly, I want to put Smith as SUB

He just gives us a heap of flexibility and his pinch hitting fitness and swift movement is a weapon (and I feel he tires as a full time FWD)

Fritta and Tmac in gives us one more spot to fill

Rivers with a bit of mid time, and Hibbo down back against the fleet footed C'wood attack may be the answer...?

Tough one. I agree he is very valuable as the sub but he was very strong in the last quarter against the swans.

Re: Pies record in the wet.

I remember their game against Richmond in round 3 being a wet low-scoring slug fest. It was close for most of the game mainly due to Pies inaccuracy. 

Obviously not as helpful to look at as it was early in the season when they were running out games better.

Watch the replay.:: no rain of any significance

I reckon we'll go TMac for Melksham and Hibbo for Laurie. Not sure who plays sub out of Smith or Hibbo. They may go with Smith as sub.

I would 100% listen to Binman's music podcast.

Can anyone elaborate as to why Salem would be a bottom 60 player in the comp at the moment?

I agree that he’s not shooting the lights out but bottom 60 is damning for a player of his class.

No impact was Hoyne's key reason.

Listening to hoyne on Sportsday he said we need to shut Elliot out so that match up is huge also said rivers last 6 weeks have been huge he is currently a top 30 rated player in the league and that’s who pies need to shut down at half back, luckily rivers goes through the midfield aswell so would be hard to put a clamp on him 

I want Hibbo in to give us options on Elliot, it's him or McVee

Who are Collingwood and Carlton playing, I don’t think they have opponents. Well certainly if you look at the media coverage.

Am praying for a Swans against Pies semi final next week, then have a week of media discussing Port/Brisbane, against that red and blue team in the PF.

As Ross Lyon would say, 'fingernail deep' analysis by Hoyne, the effectiveness of Salem's tackles was much better, not that he is a slouch, but he really pressured the sydney players with the ball, and unlike a lot of games ,where he is a fraction late (and gives away frees) he was really motoring to ensure he effected his tackle legally (and with venom) I thought it was effective enough that it made uf for his kicking being a little more floaty, Salem will be just fine.

yeah, yeah ... and whoever loses, the fans will blame the weather (and the umpiring). the meja will just go with whatever is the most controversial and click bait worthy. i'm looking forward to a filth meltdown.

Are you saying that "Land isn't the only place that it's always the umpires fault?

Struth I better do a rethink and cut you guys some slack

Tough at the selection table this week.

If Cox plays we must select Grundy (sorry). I hear T Mac is cherry ripe so he's in.

Wouldn't like to drop Laurie. Judd McVee hasn't lowered his colours to anybody this year and he can sort Elliot.

Melks and Turner out (sorry again) with Smithy as sub.

I’ll sell you my house if Grundy is selected.

With tmac and Grundy it's an either or, not a both situation

Need some logistic advice from folks:

The game starts at 7.20, is 6.45 arrival at the gates enough time to get in and find seats etc. 

I assume it’s plenty of time, but has anybody found it has taken longer than this to get into the G with a packed out crowd?

There's been a bit of talk on Demonland about playing Kozzy deep out of the square in this QF. Will be fascinating if we try that. Pretty hard if you're winning territory and it's always in there though

Not sure if having him deep in the forward area is the best place for him. I don't think he has the forward craft that Melky would've brought, perhaps Tracc in deep for a few plays.

I want him front and centre of the pack, then applying his pressure when they think they have an outlet. Set him up in the pockets, as his snaps from there are great.

If possible leave the goal square area empty, by pushing high, then we have a place to lead back into, with kicks over the back.

Can't bomb it to the 30 meter area in the arc. Like us, they will easily intercept those ones. 

Our forwards have been looking very mobile of late. Run their backs all over the park, so they can't set the zone and then give me some precision passes.

Can’t see it happening but Hibbo could replace Salem. 
I would feel safer with Hibbo in the side. Elliot worries me and McVee has never played on him before. Not saying he can’t do the job but Elliot is an extremely smart and strong player. He’s hurt us before and he’s exactly the sort of player who can turn a game in the blink of an eye. 

Hibbo might be the man

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
