Out: brown lever billing

in: Roo, k.brown and Fullerton 

max needs a chop out and roo needs to stay forward. 

send petty back to defence.

Give Verral, sestan,adams or Jefferson a go.. I don’t even care at this stage.

Did anyone watch the Casey game ? Seriously only Sestan and Moniz-Wakefield would be capable.  Both deserve a game. 
 

outs.  Brown again, Petty, Billings, Lever (concussion) Chandler (knee) 

in.  JVR.  Langdon.  Sestan. AMW.  Tomlinson.

Shades of Jack Watts debuting against the Pies. 
 

Let’s not kill this poor kid because we are in panic mode.

Agreed. Already playing a lot of kids; let’s not throw them all in.

Half the Casey regulars didn’t play cos they were carry over emergencies for the AFL game

Those that did play at Casey are, presumably, further back in the pack 

OUT: Lever, Billings, Sparrow, B Brown
IN: JVR, Langdon, Fullarton, Tholstrup

Petty to return to defence where he’s clearly more comfortable

I somehow doubt that the above will happen tho

I think we need to hedge our bets a little. It’s possible 2021 is all we’re gonna get, or it’s possible we might still be in the flag race. It’s hard to say at 6-4 in May.

So I would be in favor of cutting clear deadwood like Billings who won’t get a kick in September anyway, for someone like Laurie or Sestan. 
Woey Jr was one I thought might not be up to it but he’s starting to flourish with opportunity. 
Ben Brown is another who needs to go, but the cupboard is a little bare. Absolutely not to Jeffo coming in lol, I have faith in him but it’s too soon.

Tomlinson one and done for Lever. 

Otherwise I think Goody has to roll with the same guys and hope we can peak later in the year or pinch one in an open year.

Out: Lever, BBB, Billings. (Howes sub)

In: JVR, Fullarton, Langdon

FB: McVee May McDonald
HB: Rivers Petty Woey
C: Langdon Oliver Windsor 
HF: Chandler  Fullarton Viney 
FF: McAdam JVR Pickett 
Foll: Gawn ANB  Salem
Int: Bowey , Sparrow, Fritsch, Petracca
S: Howes

Probably have to give Petty the chance down back, he at least had a go in the ruck.

Which means Fullarton I guess??

Seen enough of BBB, he’s on a hiding to nothing but gave nothing. Seen more than enough of Billings.

Time to reward Woey’s consistent effort with a full game, could be half back for Howes, could be wing with Langdon forward more.

Wouldn't be surprised if we also see Tholstrup back in the side either. Maybe even a Sestan debut.

Laurie? 🤣 he's genuinely a worse version of Billings.

Probably only two things for sure.

Lever misses due to concussion.

At least one of Brown and Petty is dropped/moved out of the forward line (they combined for 1.2 from 8 disposals and 3 marks. That's not good enough for one of them on their own, let alone both of them).

Presumably JVR replaces the dropped/moved key forward. Tomlinson or Petty for Lever you'd think.

We don’t know that for sure. He’s barely had an extended opportunity. At worst he’s rubbish, like Billings is anyway, and at best he might find himself like Taj has done.

OUT: BBB   should never get another game.

        Lever (concussion)

       Woey.

IN:  Tomlinson

      JVR

      Langdon

 

 

Somehow or other Fullerton needs to be also blooded... dunno how but when I can't even give a 6.5.4.3 vote for that pathetic effort I am in a quandry.

    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.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    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
