Correct, but it will be ongoing. He has got to be ready to deal with it and play well. 
that may take time, i wouldn’t rush it 

That's the poorest excuse I have ever heard of.

I think We played so well against Carlton I wouldn't be tempted to make changes. Just Clarry for Pickett who is suspended.

I would play Fullerton as the sub.

Yep. But i am not saying a word 

Clarry has got to be both mentally and physically strong to be part of the team. 100% ready for 2 hours of heat

You don't think he would have copped it at VFL level? He's ready to play and he's the quality we need to replace Pickett.

Practice games and the real thing are 2 very different matters

That seems backwards compared to the normal path, but we go in aaaallll directions around here.

Don't mind the crankies, they just like yelling at each other about things going back as far as Barry Prendergast!

Hey,I resemble that remark🤬

Yes.  Perhaps we could release a dog on the field for Maynard on King’s birthday?

Harsh on dogs, TJF….

Only if it’s a sweet little thing,  if it is a mongrel or viscous type it would enhance his reputation 

perhaps with a pink bow, sorry to all the alternate types on here.

i think we are all alternate in our own way. 
 

just beat the swans Early points are the best points. Easy run in August

He drafted Gawn, that in itself just about wipes the slate clean. 
 

No Gawn, no flag.

Maintain the rage.

We march at dawn.

That’s not so from all the press or even what Gawny has said. 

Join the dots, if you can.

If Oliver is fit enough to play footy and is available for selection, he plays AFL. Simple as that.

You think so?

Don't understand the calls for Clarry to not play. Even if he produced 50% of his normal output it would still be better than anyone else you put in for him.

Clarrie plays, pretty sure he's used to people tuning him by now.

Agree Slarti.

There is more to this than just his football performance and those that know best will decide if he plays.

Those that would appear to know best have said/implied that multiple times.

On pure footy he would appear right, on his other issues I wouldn't have a clue.

I was out last night & one of the speakers was Brad Scott. Of course the first question Caro asks him was about culture at clubs  & cited MFC & all our “off field dramas”. He answered it very well saying culture is literally a day by day thing. You work on it every day ..he has some extremely talented players who don’t necessarily embody the right “culture” so they have to work on it. He then said he would never criticise Melb & he heard Max Gawn (who he said is an icon incredibly talented..exceptional etc) & Max said “Melb has a great culture (paraphrasing). He then left it at that. That kept Caro quiet. The other point he made very clearly is that unless you are inside the club no one has really any idea what is happening. So my long winded point is ..we have to trust everybody around Clarry to make the right decisions. We simply don’t know all the facts & that is fine by me.

You would play him at 50% over the young blokes (K Brown) no offence

I have no problem with the concept of Opening Round showcasing a couple of "blockbusters" in a non-footy state. They should have just called it Round 1 and just had 10 teams with a Bye and move on. It just makes it so confusing.

Or called it the Claytons round - the Season opener when you aren’t having a Season opener

My suspicion is that the AFL has an ongoing promise to Richmond and Carlton that they will play the first game of Round 1 every year. And the AFL has found a way to stick to that promise.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
