In front of the home crowd - very poor effort.

How rude you are to question Clarry after 150 good games and he was not at or near his best (like about 5/6 others). Players are human and to see him do all that work and you openly ( or sarcastically) ask about a trade?

please don’t contribute if you dishonour a champion so horrendously because you are in a shi..y mood. And the forwards were poor but again not necessarily as disinterested as you assert.

We all know that Oliver, fit and firing, is a champion.

It is simply a fact that he had a terrible game tonight in a midfield that was completely smashed by the opposition.

Petracca, another champion, also had an off night.

Obviously we all want to see Clarry back at his dominating best. But so far this season he has been a shadow of the player we know he can be, and if he does not regain form he would not be worth the money he is on. Again, that's simply a fact in the brutal world of football.

I would be delighted if he produces man-of-the-match performances for the rest of the season.

Well spoken 58er. Talk about lack of loyalty and respect for one of the best players to pull on a Melbourne jumper. Maybe your disappointment tonight outweighed your logical thinking.

Oliver - Shouldn't have played.

Clearly hampered by the hand, couldn't pick up the ball, couldn't grab an opponent, it was like trying to play with one arm.  Hopefully it gets sorted during the break and he's back to his best soon.

Turn it up @BigFez. Selwood played his whole career with one arm. Didn't need the other one to handball.

This is also c&%p. Do you know anything about the game at all?

The club rolled the dice with Oliver and why wouldn't you. But he's clearly too injured to be playing. I hope the bye will give him time to mend his hand. He was killing it before.

Um, you do know he has serious hand issues?? Not his fault he plays, surely selectors and medico's are accountable for playing him when clearly hampered!

Looking past the disposal count in games, he's been very average by his standards the whole year (I'm not suggesting he's past it though, by any stretch). But to say he was 'killing it' this year, even prior to injury, is viewing his season with a high amount of recency bias with regards to his previous seasons.

It's so obvious to us his injured so why play him? Would have been the perfect time time I've him a extended break to get fit and firing...

Facts are without Oliver and Tracc fit and in form we are not a top 4 side

But don't you think it's a coincidence that after the ripping round 1 game his form started to dip after the finger issue first came to light?

It's a massive part of Oliver's game being able to extract and use those quick hands to help clear from contest. Take it away from him and it's like telling Tiger Woods that he can't use the driver.

We have literally nobody else to bring in.  Our depth is woeful.

He did get 9 coaches votes in a game before his injury so he hasn't been what you call average the WHOLE year. Some very over critical posters on this forum I reckon.

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
