WOEWODIN%20Taj.png Taj Woewodin Concussion TBC
TURNER%20Daniel.png Daniel Turner Stress Fracture 7-9 Weeks

 

 

So the only surety is Turner at 7 to 9 weeks and Kozzie at 1 week

Christ that's a quarter of our list. And easily 6 players who would be picked in our best 22 if fit too. This season has worrying 2019 vibes.

My understanding is they can have up to 8 on the bench.

Good. Means Brown plays for sure. He kicked a couple against the Tigers. We have trouble kicking goals so he stays in.

Apart from that Brown is more of a good reader of the play type rather than an opportunist. So he seems to be in the play a fair bit. He is quick, can tackle and evasive.

Windsor plays as well.

T.Mac and possibly Hunter will be fit enough in 1 and a half weeks.

Apart from Brayshaw, Melksham, Turner, and maybe Petty the rest should all be available for the opening round.

The basic rule of thumb to having a successful season and winning finals is on the back of a healthy pre season with large numbers on the track and minimal injuries and off season surgeries.

I’d imagine the club would internally be very concerned about their prospects this year.

Never been to IKON before.  What is the parking situation there?  Just find something on the street nearby, or do they open up one of the nearby fields?

You’d have to get there early in order to get a park on the surrounding streets. There’s a carpark at Ikon but it fills quickly, especially for a sellout.

I highly recommend PT. From Flinders St Station it’s a tram ride to the ground, or it’s eight train stops on the Upfield line (three stops from North Melbourne station) and a 15-minute walk to the ground. I always do this since it’s a really pleasant walk through Royal Park.

But we can’t play all players who have missed some preseason as some will be under done I believe. 

Kent has  simply made a list which has no real date or any info. Other than Disco being 7-9 weeks away. For eg he has posted Angus still on the list nearly 24 hours after he has retired. 
Is guesswork so go to the Club website and get latest. Or look up City newspapers for more update info. On Carlton game hopefuls and Opening Round chances.

Players that can’t play or injury will prevent are Kossie Disco And Petty. 
Balance  is some will play vs Blues and possibly be available for Sydney game or Some may not come up in time.

The tram as I understand goes up from Flinders St Station in Eliz st. Just ask the driver. Info usually available on the back of the shelter at the tram stop.

It’s all been said before but I hate the term “spud”. Its unnecessary, insulting  and  disrespectful. Tomlinson and others may have deficiencies but we all do. Yet we don’t go around calling family members, friends and work colleagues, “spuds”. Just not necessary. 

I do recall "Spud" Dullard in days of yore. Not sure how he won that moniker.

Yes, if you catch the #19 tram from the corner of Flinders and Elizabeth Streets it takes you down Royal Parade and Ikon is a two minute walk from the 11th tram stop (Royal Parade/Walker St).

Tony inherited the "Spud" nickname from his father Adrian, who played over 100 games for Melbourne, including two premierships.  I don't know the origin of the nickname.

This list was on the Demonland home page  I presumed it had some official provenance.

It is going to be 36 degrees on Wednesday. I will be going to the game including the reserves match. 

Exactly.

If people expect to see much out of this match, they will be disappointed.  Carlton played Geelong in similar conditions last week, and it was the most appalling display of AFL football to watch, with turnover after turnover after turnover.  It was just too hot to bother. 

We should know, it will be like playing in Darwin, so with a game only 10 days later, don't expect too much exertion.

I believe the game has been moved to 10.30 in the morning. Check the website first and hope the media department do their job.

Not sure if you're having a laugh or serious?

At 12 pm on Wednesday, during the third quarter, it will be 31 degrees in blazing sunshine.

At 7pm it will be about 32/33 with the sun past its peak.

Not sure there's massive relief in moving it to 10:30 - 1pm?

I would like to see Tholstrup get a bit of a run.

Gives him some confidence that he could be in the mix this season, that he gets an understanding of the level required, and we/they get a look at him.

Now that Brayshaw's retired have to change the team.

B: Lever, May, McVee

HB: Rivers, McDonald, Salem

C: Hunter, Petracca, Langdon

HF: Billings, van Rooyen, Neal-Bullen

F: Spargo, Fritsch, Chandler

FOLL: Gawn, Oliver, Viney

IC: Bowey, Sparrow, K. Brown, Windsor

SUB: Laurie

Tx Werridee .

Tmac in theory sure but is his body is up to it?

I hope so but think not.

Also in his five games I dont think Laurie has proved himself as yet.

Otherwise you make a good case.

This is 5 mins from my place. You need to be early. One tip is to hit bottom of sydney road west side at 6:01pm when the clearway ends. Heaps of parks, and a 1-2 tram stops back down to IKON. Unless you have pre-game committments that's my hot tip. Parking over east side of IKON is a mix of permit, 2hr and full. Royal parade itself if you get lucky.

The Casey match starting time has indeed been changed to 10:30am.

More importantly though… it’s a CLOSED event. It’s Ikon’s decision to make it a closed event.

Of course like everything else this is subject to change, but as it stands now, it’s not open to fans.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
