PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne



Recommended Posts

After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?

Please let’s see Sestan, Tholstrup and Fullarton.

Surely Petty has to be omitted on form.

Turner, Billings, Laurie don’t look up to it.

Chandler, Sparrow, Oliver and Fritsch have unsatisfactory and should be dropped even just to make a statement but the cupboards bare so they’ll stay in.

I dread the inevitable dropping of Howes, Laurie and Turner for Woey, McAdam & B.Brown whilst the likes of Petty, Sparrow, Bowey etc get away with the bare minimum as always.

If Roos bring that same pressure against Eagles, they are a genuine sniff. 

Out: Billings, Laurie, Turner.

In: Woewodin, McAdam, Tholstrup.

Go bit smaller for more forward half pressure given the foot skills are way off at the moment.

Tholstrup, and play him for the rest of the year. Time to make selections for the future rather than the present. Unfortunately.

Not sure that any other changes are more than rearranging the deck chairs.

Not sure about the ins/outs, hopefully Petracca pulls up ok after the break.

If Lever isn't ready I would put Turner down back and consider bringing Fullarton in for fwd/ruck duties.

Tholstrup perhaps to get a recall. Does Casey have a game next week?

This disgraceful excuse for a support competition - no. Another bye.  A blight on player development.

FB: Howes May McVee

HB: Bowey McDonald Salem

C: Langdon Viney Windsor

HF: ANB Fritsch Tholstrup

FF: Laurie van Rooyen Fullarton

R: Gawn Oliver Rivers

I/C: Woewodin, Tomlinson, Sestan, McAdam

Sub: Turner

Those italicised should be on notice for playing totally within themselves since the bye. Petracca out maybe saves Sparrow, but I just can't put up with the lack of effort from the likes of him, Chandler and Petty every week. 

It does feel a bit silly throwing in Sestan, Fullarton and Tholstrup but there also isn't much choice unless we want to keep rewarding mediocrity.

Would like to see Tholstrup, Woey and AMW in the team next game.

Think it's worth testing Fullarton out against North, he was signed as back up.. but i'm sure he'd be doing Petty/Turner numbers in this team. Would keep JvR forward too.

Sestan must be getting closer - Does he have the tank?

Kolt in - and tell him to tackle everything in sight 

6 players who pulled on the MFC jumper today had zero tackles

Petty , disco out or back to the backline 

One or more of the Casey forwards who have actually been drafted and played a lot of footy as a forward.

Jefferson, Luka, Fullerton , Brown can't be any worse.

Surely Kolt, and Sestan, both big bodied but inexperienced, would both contribute more than Billings and Laurie, and we definitely need a big strong body to replace Petracca.

Even Luker Kentfield would probably outdo poor Petty who is just totally devoid of confidence - I know he won't get a debut probably this season but that is how low impact or tall forwards (JVR excepted) are at the moment.   

Fullarton, if he is ever going to be selected, must replace Petty and or Turner next round.

    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
