Huge chance Dees to make a huge statement.

One change only - Kozzie will be missed but the excitement of a new Kolt may almost cancel that out.  Certainly looks as dynamic and as strong as Kozz.  Will he make Kozz earn his return for ANZAC Eve?

Backline settled and working beautifully as a UNIT / TEAM.  Midfield always prepared for good hard go and a forward line working with better structure and some smart delivery to space by the likes of Duke Tracc Spaz ANB with Frittata slipping unnoticed out the back often enough.  And Clarrie at 70% is so much better than many others at 100% - just wait,

I must add JVR's back up ruck work is very good for one s0 young who is not a "natural ruckman".

Tonight's game is just about one of those famous "eight pointers" !  Going into the bye with 5 in a row and just one loss would be a huge start to the season.

Brisvegas , on the other hand, is facing a disastrous start so they'll be  flat out to recover their season.

Our backs have been pretty slick. Big Joe will find May rather more difficult than some kid from Norf and I can't see Dipwood getting on top of a rejuvenated TMac. As always Charlie ( super player)  will be the danger and a real challenge/experience for McVee.

Max Trac and Viney will win the crucial Mids battle ( Neale's 250th notwithstanding) but what would really seal the deal is a big one from Oliver - it's due.

Kozzie leaves a hole for sure but it has provided an opportunity for the "Kolt" - good luck kid.

Hopefully BBB draws a crowd and allows the others a little more space. Fritta kicks 4 and we win. A couple from Trac sneaking forward would also help cover Kozzie's usual contribution.

Really looking forward to watching Windsor again - this kid is pure class and quickly becoming a favourite. ( I'm also starting to understand  the comparisons with our famous number 2)

That's a bit long winded for me but your poor old Uncle Bitter has been a bit under the weather of late and couldn't sleep! A life time of hedonism may finally be catching up.

Prediction. Dees to win by 9 or a full blow out and a 39 point victory.

Happy days - go Dees!

Back in Amsterdam for this one. Due to all the global daylight savings going-ons, this is the most friendly intercontinental time-slot that I can recall for some time, such that I can order a beer while watching with . . . not exactly pride . . . but less shame. For the local peeps, is Coco's the only go?

The 2021 vibe lid will be completely blown off if we win it tonight

And I'm very confident we will 

Haven't much to add, reckon BBO nailed all the talking points

Stil think Salem is well below his best at the moment

Perhaps if Bowey was fit Salem would be dropped

For me that lid will become slightly ajar when we beat Geelong and Carlton in successive weeks

I thought Mini and BBO. Nailed it. 
 

important game. Not one to lose, 

JVR work around the ground is so very important.  A work in progress. But getting better each time. 
 

is it going to be wet  pity. Hope it stays dry

definitely an eight point game.  Make a statement Demons !

Salem has lost his drive. Lacks acceleration and kicking penetration.

We are winning , but the stats say that we are doing it  little differently. Losing inside 50, easier to score against and less effective at clearances. 
 

Will have to reverse a lot of that against Lions to win. The Lions are offensively strong but are really poor defensively so we will definitely get our looks. Kick accurately, apply pressure around the contest and take advantage of our chances and we will win.

Easy, right?

Nervous for this game, especially with Oliver being a rumoured late out (suspect Laurie will be in the inclusion if this eventuates). 

One of the biggest threats for tonight will be Bailey, IMO. He always seems to bob-up against us. 

So far this season I've been incredibly impressed and surprised by what I've seen on-field (by far surpassing my expectations at this stage). A win tonight will help instil belief and agree, that it may be a prelude of things to come (dare I say it), à la 2021.

It would be wrong to expect a walkover.

We'll do our best.

    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.

    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
