Anyone else a bit concerned that we are going in too small? Especially given that it may not rain as much as predicted?

 

Changes from 2021 GF team - out BBB, Jackson, Petty and Spargo. In - JVR, Hunter, Chandler and McVee. Much smaller team.

Not really, I think the Pies are going in a bit tall.

Think they were still talking about the effects also of rain mate. Strong westerlies will prob bring the rain quicker.!!!

Yeah - I'm talking about the rain and the wind cobes...might not be

heavy rain but the winds look strong to me....

I feel nauseated, excited, scared but hopeful. I will be there tonight with my Pie supporting husband who is convinced the Pies will thrash us. I just hope the weather Gods are kind and we are accurate in front of goal and a real bonus is if we can keep our feet if the surface is a bit slippery. I also wish nothing but pain and suffering for Cox, Maynard and Ginnivan.

Keep a lid on it Jane and hopefully you get to enjoy the smug satisfaction of rubbing it in for the next few weeks after the game :)

Agree Grumpy if we had the GF team we would be a bit taller and prob too tall. 

Happy with Juddy Chin Hunter and JVR. Providing the three small/ mediums dot do a Kossie and fly unrealistically ( not one mark yet I can remember since he started his attempts at MOTC ) Century) is he due tonight? Happy if Goody bans him trying. 

Much better at ground level and JVR and Jacko about even. If JVR can clunk more then 2 he will have scored 3 goals probably!!!

Advantage us !!!

A thought.

Ahead of Round 1 there was plenty of talk about the Dogs' 4 talls forward line - Naughton, Lobb, JUH and Darcy. And how would we stop them? 

Stopping them wasn't a problem. (Yeah,I know the filth are a better side.)

I am happy with them too. Just think we need one more tall. Not sure who though - Tommo a bit slow, Disco a bit green and Grundy one dimensional.

I don’t think it’s going to be wet. I think we’ll get a shower and it’ll pass quickly. The front is preceded by a thin rain band. Both the front and the rain band are tracking South West. Most of the heavy rain will hit Portsea and Bass Strait. Obviously the many retired Demons down in Portsea will be snug with their superannuation, cash, property and share portfolios and will likely not even see the rain. Although looking out over the Bay from the cliff top may leave them with vertigo. Cheers to all, leave the poncho’s at home.

Yep I am a bit.

After the Freo game, we were found out in defence by only having May and Lever as tall defenders. Since then we've gone with either Tomlinson, Petty, Turner or Smith as that third tall defender. Smith was that third key defender in the Carlton game which we lost before he was sent forward late.

Can only imagine Smith will be a defender tonight.

Solved play Laurie who will be perfect  as the sub in these conditions. 

Tmac JVR Fritta Gawny Trac all good in the air and ground.  Plus all the smalls and mids up forward and Centre. 

we have almost over anslysed for experts. Let's leave it to the amateurs like Goody and his six pack!!!

If the predicted wind comes (40 k before the rain), I expect the wet to pass quickly. Hope it blows itself out.

It won't be a wet weather slog, more a dump making for a slippery ball and surface, then it clears.

Forecast much better than it was a day or two back. It won't be overly wet tonight and won't really be much of a factor now.

We'll win a hard fight tonight. Petracca and Viney to bulldoze this one. Trac to notch up top votes for the Gary Ayres best player of finals award. He is primed and looked ominous last week against the Swans when the whips were cracking.

    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?
