Out.   Chandler.  Jogging. He’s clearly injured.  Clearly.

 AMW IN !!!!  

Out.  Turner.  One good game then lost as a forward v cats and lost v blues.  Natural defender.  
 

MCADAM IN !!! (If fit)

Give Woewodin a go . He is improving every time he plays.

I've been a supporter of Turner and he has a bright future. Fullarton had a very good game against Port Melbourne a few weeks ago and has been moderate since. If he plays well tomorrow night I would promote him for Disco who needs to regain some confidence at Casey. If Fullarton plays it would mean JVR could stay at home and hopefully build confidence against the Eagles. Chandler clearly playing injured. Give him a rest. I'm also in the AMW camp. He looks classy. If Tholstrup has a cracker tomorrow he might be considered.

Minimal changes. Almost glad we got stung, as WCE aren't easy beats. With a bit of fire in the belly from that 1st quarter I'm feeling less MFCSS around the fixture. I'll be in the crowd

Forgot about McAdam. Presuming he plays tomorrow night and plays reasonably well in the VFL he HAS to come in and play in Perth. Our forward line is screaming out for an 'X factor' and this bloke could well be the answer! I'll be watching with interest.

I agree. He was great tonight. Developing at a nice and steady rate. Full game against Eagles could do wonders for his confidence.

No disrespect to Eagles, as they've improved, but need to blow out a few cobwebs. Reverted to bombing it in too much tonight and connection moving the ball was very stifled. Good chance to stamp down on how we want to play heading into the 2nd half of the season.

I really like JVR having a crack in the ruck, but surely it's time we bring in Fullerton as a proper back up. JVR was torn apart by Pittonet and De Koning whenever Max went off. 

In: Fullerton, McAdam (if fit)

Out: Turner (unlucky but has now played two average games in a row), Billings (poor recent form although he had a good last quarter).

JVR is a better ruck then Fullarton.

The commentary on here with people thinking Fullarton is actually a ruckman of so far off the mark. He's literally a 200cm forward flanker that tries to attempt a few hitouts every now and then.

If you think Fullarton would have made any difference as a 2nd hand ruckman then you would have been in for a shock.

Let's see who does what at Casey.  No glaringly obvious changes to me

IMO Billings is still NQR decision making and disposal - does AMW fill his role?

McAdam is an interesting one - pulled out sick I believe early in Casey's last game.  Has he recovered and can he play a full and good game Saturday?

PS - wwsw ⬆️ prodded my tired and frustrated brain - Chandler is looking NQR too.  Is he fit or carrying an injury?  McAdam could fill that role if fit.

FB: McVee May McDonald
HB: Howes Lever Bowey
C: Billings  Rivers Windsor
HF: Langdon Petty Tracc
FF: Pickett JVR Fritsch
Foll: Gawn Oliver Viney
Int: Sparrow, ANB, Woey, Chandler
S: Turner

Let's stick with Langdon and Tracc forward, both gave us something different and try Rivers on ball for a good spurt.

That means Woey in down back, Billings on the wing.

I'm hardly a Billings fan, but he had 16 disposals in the second half on the wing and some of them were at least fine. 

Disco back to sub because we don't need as much height with Tracc forward, and we need speed to pressure.

No one else on here seemingly agrees with me but if we are fair dinkum we need to think about dropping Fritsch if he doesn't start doing some more team first stuff from the first bounce. Lead up at the kicker every now and then and have a crack with the ball on the deck. If they made him sub I'd be ecstatic.

can't see a 'tall' being used a sub

fritsch is not getting dropped, nor played as a sub

rivers stays down back for mine, and neal-bullen plays more midfield time - he was excellent in the square and around stoppages in the second half

ditto sparrow

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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
