PREGAME: Rd 02 vs Hawthorn



Recommended Posts

No change (unless for injury). Don't drop Sparrow after one quiet game, but think about who the sub should be. If Woey isn't in the 22, play him in the VFL (and make Laurie the sub or AMW or Kynan Brown))
Petty to be given another run in VFL.
Tholstrop to play in VFL next week (after missing out on any games this week). We're playing Sunday in the VFL so he can still be an emergency.(When we go to Adelaide, we'll be taking a squad for the 2 games, so I imagine Thosltrop will be taken in the squad, so give him, Petty & Woey  a VFL game next week.)

Added more options for next week's sub

I don't think any changes but Petty in is tempting. Play Brown for 1 more week and then bring petty in for Adelaide games.

Take Petty to Adelaide - spend a week there and he may decide he has seen it all and wants to stay in Melbourne.

Any updates on Lever's leg?  He was hobbling a bit (?calf or ankle?) at the end and after the game.

I feel for Rosas. It was until all those Covid warnings that I realised how often I make contact with my head.

May be worthwhile resting Windsor for a week, and take the opportunity to blood another young player, before the big games start.

Looked like cramp according to the trainers course of action.

Geez this place bounces wildly back and forth on Sparrow. I said this after the 2021 grand final and I'll say it again now. He's a great role player who has limitations with his disposal but absolutely busts his backside and always cracks in hard.

He had 0 CBAs today so naturally his disposals are down. 6 score involvements is solid work though.

And his effort is all over the tracker sheet. 2nd in sprint distance. 2nd in average speed. 4th in total sprints. 2nd in average speed in attack. 

Stop with this madness that he'd get dropped for a kid.

Petty in for Brown for mine: time to settle our best forward line in, and while Ben was decent he was playing on a flanker. I think JVR+Petty is our best tall forward setup this season

Haven’t seen the full game so I’m surprised to see he had no CBAs. Is that just us making room for Pickett and Salem?

When Oliver, Trac and Viney are all having dominant games it's hard for our next midfielder to rack up a lot of disposals. They can't all get it at once!!! Sparrow stays in.

This fascination of change for changes sake (or to appease our curiosity - "the grass is always greener on the otherside of the fence" approach), is not conducive to strong team culture. A strong team culture builds belief and confidence - which is crucial for players to be in form.

Do you mean petty performance in vfl?

Expand. Is he out of touch do you think etc and needs a few weeks?

Thanks

Spot on. Leave sparrow alone

We just had a very solid win.

Goody does not change the lineup if we win well.   No changes,

perhaps a small tinkering with the substitution player. And emergency group.

No change for me please.

Sparrow didn't fire but did anyone else shine enough at Casey to replace him?

He's a big body that is hard to match up on.

By all accounts Petty wasn’t up to form in the VFL practice game, and BBB did a great job (yes maybe on a NQR opponent) so why in the world make that change, yet ??

Ain’t no way he is getting off on appeal.

Might have gotten off if he didn't kick him on the way through, thats just dumb.

Definitely need another win here.

I personally don't rate Hawthorn and we have two horrible games in Adelaide coming up

 Both against Adelaide based clubs.

Ot had to be us. Grrrr. Probably part of some nonsense deal to get us out of Kardinia since the Korean war.

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
