PREGAME: SF vs Carlton

I'm a no for Schache (I want to see him do well but he just doesn't seem a competitor) but you've argued that pretty well.

Goody and the match committee are very much process driven people.  Each player plays a role and if someone is injured or suspended then the next person in line comes in.  If Schache is not to play in this circumstance then why re-sign him.  If the delivery is good, he is actually capable.  Could his job be to nullify Weitering?

(Btw I'd still lean to Grundy))

Yeah agree, surely we didn't draft him just to play in the 2s. 

He would be a decent matchup for Weitering. Very possible. 

haha yeah, it's hard to argue in favour of leaving out an AA ruckman who can kick a goal or two 

Really interested to see which way we'll go!!

He’s a star mate. A tough, premiership player. Literally had the norm smith until CP5 went platinum in the last 40 mins.

Agree Mate was a star clearly injured or crook cant kick or turn premiership was a world back in the past

Imagine what Grundy would be thinking on Friday night when he's up in the stands watching Schache taking his first centre ruck contest of the night.

I understand the potential selection because one can play forward and the other can't, but it's still hard to get your head around.

 

 

And when the siren sounds..  I'm outta here, tossing his cap in the bin on the way out 😞

Not only does he barrack for the Demons, at the rate our forwards are falling, he is odds on to line up at FF this week

It's an old one, but... Back in the day, a church in Hawthorn put up the topic for next week's sermon: "What would you do if Jesus came to Hawthorn?".  A couple of days later there was a scrawl underneath that said: "Move Brereton to centre half forward!"

And I think there are spots for at least six of the Apostles in the forward line, too.

Just to clarify what I read in the last minute regarding Tomlinson & Hibberd:

We had a team that was winning and playing well with Tomlinson alongside Lever & May.

We dumped Tomlinson after Richmond, brought him back against Hawthorn, then dumped him again for no reason to play Turner against Sydney. Turner wasn't great, but the team still won.

We then dumped Turner to play Hibberd against Collingwood. After a slow start Hibberd was okay, but the team lost.

We are now bringing back Tomlinson to play against Carlton without McKay, even though he didn't play when McKay did play in round 22. 

The question is why, oh why, would you keep stuffing around with the competition's best defence at this stage of the season?

Binman reckons Tomlinson's failure to play all-team defence cost us three goals against the Hawks. Good enough reason to leave him out when we are losing by less than two goals each week?

As I’ve already said Hibberd is needed against Cameron and Elliot the next 2 weeks and can’t play 4 games in a row on his Achilles. 

This. Hibberd is incredibly close to the end and simply can't back up multiple weeks in a row even though he is still good enough when he can get up for the game.

I think the answer was, "Move Hudson to Centre Half forward" though at the old Glenferrie Oval Full Forward is not that far from Centre Half Forward.

Correct. Thanks demoniac.  Brereton was never FF.

Because last week we wasted Lever as a lockdown for most of the game. Third tall means Lever can actually do what he does best

I thought the original response was..... "play him at CHF"  .... inferring that  Peter Hudson is God and remains at FF.  I never saw it in person but a few relatives did.

Well over 50 years ago.

Demon fans traveling in Turkiye. Me and my die hard son. Managed to find a bar in Istanbul to watch the Dees and Maggies. But now heading into more rural areas. Can anyone suggest a way to watch the Carlton dees game on our phone? Would appreciate any help. Go red legs!

So it’s feeling like Grundy, Spargo, Jordon into the 23 with Schache the dark horse now.. considering Turner didn’t train. 
 

im gonna go with Thommo as sub, Jordon & Spargo in… massive risk but admits and McDonald can compete might help the bombing be less prevalent

I really do believe we will win this. Not so confident about the Pf.

But it feels like the whole world is against us. Not just the Maynard  Incident. 

But we will coming out breathing fire and jump this mob. Their campaign is finished. They are in for a very rude awakening .

Voss is hedging his bets with Silvagni.  Says he is available but hasn't played a game for over a month.  It is rare for a player with his # of preseasons to come back via the VFL.  .

They have lost a tall fwd have an injured #1 ruckman and only Silvagni covers both positions.  Pittoney and DeK are not fwds and they need another tall to help Curnow otherwise Curnow will be in for a harrowing night!! 

If he isn't selected tonight I would expect a late change tomorrow.

Mind games...!

    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.

    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
