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.

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.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
