Good to see Tommo get a spot.

Tomlinson plays we lose. He is that bad. He plays 1 good game out of every ten the rest are rubbish. Haven't given up on T.Mac hopefully he gets a game against Carlton to prove himself. Sick of the rubbish from Tomlinson he's not up to AFL standard.

I agree. They should send him to Werribee....

I'm not sure he's been given ten games.

Tmac could barely move in his last two games ( our finals) so I'm not sure we have much choice.

I would love to see a fit Tmac running and moving freely, but I've been holding out for almost three years now.

FB: McVee  May ????

HF: Billings  Petracca Spargo
FF: Fritsch JVR  Chandler
Foll: Gawn Viney Sparrow
Int: ANB, Woey (half back), Oliver/Laurie?, ????
S: ????

Plenty of question marks. Didn't like the look of Tomlinson or Howes down back, would see if a tall puts their name up and try Woey on a back flank.

Midfield it's a matter if Clarry gets the approval or is made to wait.

2nd ruck/key forward is a big problem.

Parker broken arm , not playing for sydney plus mills

Handy out. That's 23 possessions and possibly a goal they'll have to find elsewhere.

Whilst I agree that Tomlinson was awful last week, who are the talls that will go up against McDonald, McLean and Armatey if we leave Tomo out?

TMAC is not the answer and unfortunately well past it. You can say "pay respect" etc however if he is playing at CHB, we are in huge trouble.

I love TMac he has been a great servant of the club and I would love to see him back in  his ‘21 early ‘22 form but failing that Tomlinson has to fill the void and personally I think Adam compliments Mayzie and Lever. Time will tell WERRIDEE.

FWIW, my order of preference is:

Turner, Hore, Tommo, TMac but I'll hold off until after the Carlton game to see if TMac has found some mobility, re- familiarity with the backline. Perhaps they'll have an extended interchange and play both or all three. TMac can also swing forward if desperate.

Its likely Tmac will likely be have to be re-swung forward again now with all the injuries.

As a backman I agree with the above. Its been many years since he played back consistently. Even then while he was great one on one in the air and competed well, his kicking was subpar. With how easily you can get burnt off backline mistakes these days we must ensure we have reliable kicks in our back half.

Tomlinson is a much better kick and competes so well one on one. While he's not too fast he can actually still turn a corner unlike Tmac who is like a train on the tracks. As a backman that's a big liability.

Its been two years since Tmac played in a premiership as a forward. Since then he's played seasons of 15 and 9 games. Last year he struggled to get into the side and even when he did was out of desperation for positional need and was one of the most disappointing in those two finals where he needed to stand up.

You telling people to “show some respect” whilst repeatedly insulting Tomlinson at every opportunity is a bit rich.

McDonald is a premiership player Tomlinson is nothing the sooner he is shown the door the better

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    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
