joeboy great start to the season, agree with much of your pithy triplets. Reality is a dish best served up cold.  A trifle harsh on Judd McVee (Jekyll and Hyde). Some excellent moments with a few diabolical lapses. Ed Langdon on my viewing had a (blue colour performance).

Schace - never again please

I'm not one to bag players, and was more than happy to be open to the idea schache might be OK.

But as we saw with weed, if a player hasn't got instinctive grunt and fire they rarely can develop it.

Slippery night, so the talls get a pass on marking, but his lack of second efforts and inability to hold his ground are woeful.

Both were on display in a contest where Grundy marked on the wing, on his chest. Weak effort by schache. They got a goal as a result.

And those attributes means it hard to see him making it as a second ruck.

Let's dump on Schache

Yay!! A whipping boy!!

I just did/was.

But you make a fair point.

There were plenty of others who played worse.

Shache Only in emergency

Spargo 97 lucky games

Sadly we will see him again.

It's what happens when key fwds are out from serious injuries for several seasons and the club just sits around doing nothing about it.

Oh sorry we recruited Grundy for a season. My bad.

Really think we need more from Nibbler.

He seems to have lost a lot of his form.

As has Langdon, Lever and Rivers.

Time for Chandler to find himself at Casey and Laurie should never have left them.

I'm hearing you, but to be fair to Schache, Grundy cannonballed into him and he's much bigger and stronger

He's not a 2nd ruck

And while we're on it, Grundy ran into Gawn ALL night and Gawn did nothing to allay the tactic

Dumb play or dumb coaching?

I think this is the most glaring example of the club/coach/captain’s stubbornness I’ve ever seen.

Grundy rendered Gawn almost useless from the very first bounce and we had absolutely nothing up our sleeve to rectify it.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
