Can't believe the negativity on this site for just a SENSATIONAL LIVE ACT IN KISS?? Seen them several Times, DEEP PURPLE 15 Times, URIAH HEEP, ALICE COOPER, NIGHTWISH, JETHRO TULL SEEN THEM ALL seeing GHOST in October, and lets not forget HAWKWIND!! 

Here he goes again, shouting away.

Pretty much every one of your posts these days, mate, I think of Abe Simpson shouting at the clouds...

JVR?

We've selected 6 marking "talls" if you count Fritsch and I do. We can play 3 forward and 3 back if necessary.

Ah yep, slipped my mind, I was just replacing Melksham with TMac in my mind. Still don’t think we are that tall and as you say seem balanced. Also Smith can go back at a moments notice.

T Mac or Smith will play back IMO.

The last time we went small in defence with the May/Lever/Hibberd combo was the Freo loss. We rectified this by bringing in Tomlinson the next week against Carlton in order to have a recognised third key defender. And the results have seen us with a 10-3 record with either Petty, Tomlinson or Turner as the key third defender.

I have no clue why we’ve abandoned this proven formula other than they’re  playing Smith down back tomorrow.

Because it's gonna rain mate. That completely takes away our intercept ability in the air and also helps nullify their talls in the air.

Wow! What a refreshing listen.

Looking forward to hearing a lot more from Phil.

"To me... to me... to me..."

He was insightful, but he's less inventive than me with his vocabulary.

Posted this on the ticketing thread but no takers, so here it is again.

We are falling like flies.  I too am sick and can no longer go.  Ticket is Q54 row A seat 11.  Please someone enjoy it! No cash needed.  I believe the seat is under cover!

Really pleased to say that my ticket has gone to someone who has had a tough week and is extremely grateful.  Please demons, don't make this persons week any tougher.  Bloody win!

Actually don't have issue with Hibberd returning to be honest.

Being of an expense of a tall forward is my biggest issue though. We've gone from a system that has completely worked to the most where all purely numbers back to what they were in 2021 to now potentially throwing that put of wack.

Mate, you spent 3 days saying he was finished, he wouldn't be back in, he was a terrible human and should be sent to Azkaban. And now you don't have a problem with him returning? lol you funny guy.

Considering how the weather got worse as the week gone by I took into consideration that maybe perhaps they'll do the change purely to add more run. With that in mind I had him as a potential in for Smith.

Leaving the extra tall just doesn't sit well with me but.

Lucky we'll win anyway.

I’m a little uneasy about dropping the third tall defender for Hibberd but I can understand the reasoning.

If our midfield and forward half defensive pressure is where we need it to be, we won’t have to worry about that third tall as much.

not sure i get the reasoning. Lever has to play loose  Hibberd and Smith are not tall key defenders

if their scoring efficiency is high every time they get inside 50 they won’t need many chances. we don’t have anyone that can get near Cox’s elbow!

it will kill me if he is the difference

ill be having USA USA nightmares tonight my friends

Let's hope this performance is a lot better then his last when he got towelled up by Gary [censored] Rohan in the wet or when he played against Collingwood last year and Elliot kicked 4 on him.

Agree. 

We've unfortunately taken away our strengths.

Collingwood have bene vocal that they'll target and tag Lever which then leaves May as the only tall trying to do the grunt work.

We've finally found a defensive structure that has clicked well with the 3 talls. Our defensive numbers improved this year thr moment we implemented the 3rd tall mid way through the year.

Nervous as I am I can’t help thinking Oliver is going to play the best game of his career

Which will give the Pies little or no hope of winning 

There so everyone stop worrying

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
