Dees at $2.20 is rediculous 

I reckon that will tumble in by the bounce.

I love that Salos back in town. How many times, especially pre flag, have I seen a shambolic Melbourne - to be cured by a Salem tackle/block/turnover/sidestep and perfect delivery. 

Statement play and recalibrates the whole team

Geez, talk about going from one extreme to the other. Why are roughing up JJ & tapping him on the backside the only two choices for Viney? Just because Danny says no to roughing him up doesn’t mean he suggests the tap on the backside.

FWIW, JJ left our Club because we weren’t in a position to afford him the opportunity that he’s now getting at Sydney. Zero animosity. He left with our collective blessing. Same goes for Toby. 

You’re wasting your time trying to explain anything to this poster.

It really highlights how easily people are swayed by media sentiment. The bookies would be loving it.

Watched the Sydney game against Brisbane and Ladhams was far away the better ruckman between he and Grundy.

Grundy ran around looking like he lacked the required match fitness.

Hmmm that’s really interesting… particularly for my SuperCoach team 😬

Billings, Windsor should debut 

I’d give Clarry another week to build up after a very interrupted pre season

 

I wouldn't, Swans midfield in disaray, keep him out and he plays???? What another Casey game?

Nar.... UNLEASH CLARRY CHOO CHOO😁

I have a feeling that Clarry's absence is not just form or fitness related, and as such i think he will come back when Max and the team say he can return to the ones.

Seriously???? A four time B & F and all Aussie and you want to flirt with team oks?

Nup if he is ready he plays! No ifs or buts

Who gets Papley? He’s the only forward of theirs that worries me. He’ll either kick 5 or 0 

McVee is my guess. Little Papa might run through the middle as well.

Agree, if Paps gets off the chain he could change the whole match very quickly. Juddy or perhaps Riv?

Is the Swans midfield in disarray?

l certainly hope we go in with a preparedness to take them on. According to today’s AFL website story: Double Trouble. Pair’s Injuries Add to Swans Midfield Woes. Beyond the glib headlines they bat rather deep.

Absolutely not in disarray, and as for people saying if Clarrie is physically fit he plays no ifs or but, that would be a massive mistake. The club knows what they are doing and if he’s ready they will play him. If they choose to give him another week or so it will be for the best.

Swans midfield still has Guilden, Warner, Heeney, with Sheldrick who will step up this year and Jordan, Rowbottom to run through there. Papley may also get short stints through there. I don’t think our FD will be underestimating them

Mate, Clarry lacking match fitness will not be the difference between winning and losing.

Time to put aside the bromance, picket

We covered him very well last year

If our culture is so fragile that it requires Oliver having an unofficial and hidden (from the public/supporters) first team suspension to not shatter it, we have some pretty deep issues.

I don't have blind faith in the club, but I don't believe that we have problems of that magnitude.

If you believe in selection integrity, there is absolutely no rational justification for Oliver not playing given he has been reintegrated into the team and has played two practice matches.

Papley can have an all Australian small defender on him every game and he’ll still do what he does every second weeks. Loves being under fire, loves being roughed up, loves being doubted and especially loves being a focal point. Take care of the rest of the ground and Papley can’t do anything.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
