PREGAME: Rd 01 vs Western Bulldogs

Schache's gone for Fullarton that's a no brainer.

The rest isn't easy.

I think it has to be either Hore or Woey for Bowey and keeping Salem in the midfield. How many times did Salo lace kicks to forwards (only for them to drop them) last night? He provides us such a needed balance.

Pickett for Laurie.

Not sure if Spargo/Billings swap roles or stay in or go entirely. Not a lot of confidence in either of them.

Give Billing’s a go another of Simon’s completely from Outer space Sub selections. Maybe he had Spargs 10/12 per game possies  and disposal in mind but Billings gets 15 plus surely an advantage and his disposal is not too shabby either. 

Give Woe the nod over Marty but it does make our defence more vulnerable but at least Woe may be able to rotate with Salo occasionally.

The 50 he gave away, he struck a player in the head. It might have been an accident but at the ground it didn’t look great. 

Didn't look great on the TV, either. Most optimistic expression I could use would be "clumsy" which is the polite way of saying it was deliberate and head-high, although not necessarily forceful.

The VFL game whenever it is going to be important.  

Love to see Woey, Brown Jnr, Fullarton kill it and get their spots.

I'm concerned about May's fitness, no doubt he hurt something last night, last thing we need May to be out and tmac come in, bulldogs talls will kill us.

The Axe:

Chandler, Spargo, Billings. Shack.

Injured:

Bowey.

 

In:

Kosy, Big  Brown, Little Brown, Tommy, Woey.

 

On Notice:

Van Rooyen.

Must stop trying to be Tommahawk.

Lead up the ground, keep in front, attack the ball overhead with soft hands.

Go to the ball carrier, maybe view some old footage of Neita leading to the ball. If you must hit the pack split it open, they’ll soon look over their shoulder.

Changes that should happen:

Fullerton in for Schache

Kozzi in for one of Chandler or Spargo, probably the latter

Someone else for Bowey

 

Changes Goodwin will make:

Tom McDonald for Schache (sub)

Ben Brown for JVR (rested)

Kozzie for Bower (inj)

Spargo to playing roaming defender/plonker

Billings omitted

Kossie and Woe for starters. I’d drop Spargo play Billing’s and Kynan B and not sure on Chandler and Schache after only one game.

Fully agree that we have to keep Salem in the middle.

Bowey's injury hurts on so many levels. Robs us of his kicking, pressures us to push Salem back and prevents us pushing Rivers up more.

I'd prefer to go with Woewodin's run.

Given their pre-seasons Billings deserves a full game over Spargo. Should never have been the sub last night and should start next week.

MRO report is out and much to my surprise, Spargo was not cited. Nor was any other Melbourne player. Apparently Spargo's actions didn't even warrant a comment from the MRO. 

I'm pretty stunned by that, but I did only see one replay at the ground (which I thought supported my initial view live that it was one of those clumsy strikes that gets a week).

The only good thing about last night is we won’t ever see Schache is a Demons jumper again. No idea how he continually fools people at training. He has zero intensity and it spreads through the group. 

No offence to the bloke, i’m sure he’s a nice guy, just not cut out for footy

Agree. Hore needs to come in for Bowey - we need to be able to keep Salem in the midfield. Woey jnr doesn’t help with that, though I’d be happy for him to replace any of Laurie, Spargo or Billings.

Agree on Hore call. Kate!

This is second hand information, so could well be wrong. I thought I'd share anyway. 

Bowsa is reported to have a crack in the coracoid process in his shoulder blade. He will need surgery and likely to miss 8 weeks.

    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
