    Was still a great crowd considering the weather. Sausage sizzle and hot coffee easily best afield in these conditions - Cam Pederson looked in ripping touch. Beat TMac at least three times in some one on one drills. Looks a lock for Monday. - Joel Smith did some nice things although disposal was a tad ordinary at times. Don't mind the coaching group backing him in for the Lever role as I think he has more upside than Frost. - Mitch Hannan had his knee strapped and rotated between rehab and the main group. Didn't seemed too restricted by his injury. Obviously, expect Jeff Garlett to get the call up should he not feel 100% for QB. Speaking of Jeffy, seemed to be doing most things right aside from a bullet pass that landed directly in the hands of the opposition player (Charlie Spargo) during some match simulation. Sort of sums up Jeff's season so far - Kent looks very close to rejoining full training. Participated in a couple drills with the main group. - Jetta was Jetta. Good lord, he is a marvel to watch in one on one drills. Never gets beaten, even when he was matched up against the likes of Hogan and McDonald. Always broke even at the bare minimum. Happy to fill in any blanks if anyone has any questions.

    I wonder whether Channel 7 had any say in getting Carlton 4 Friday night games? If so, you reap what you sow.

    Of course. More goals = more ads

    I'm actually not disappointed in that. Wagner, as hard as he tries, is very suspect with his disposal.

    This stuff is disturbing. Increasingly, we are seeing the interference in the peoples game by television and its executives. So the 7 boss wants to see more goals and wants players to play with more freedom. I reckon the Demons and a few other clubs are delivering that to the spectators and TV stations today. Seriously, how much tampering with our great game are we going to see? No problem, pick up the phone and ring the AFL to change some rules to change the way the game is played. It seems that every week that as well as TV executives, there are media types, ex coaches and players calling on the AFL to change the rules. Just leave the bloody game alone. However, I feel that this is just going to get worse, and we will see more interference to please the games Masters. The TV and media outlets. One day, we will wake up and suddenly ask whats happened to our game. Sorry, i forgot the game is there for ratings, advertising and to fatten the coffers of the parasites, leeches and vultures that circle our footy game.

    The best 25 AFL players under 25: Carlton’s Patrick Cripps ahead of GWS jet Josh Kelly https://www.foxsports.com.au/afl/the-best-25-afl-players-under-25-carltons-patrick-cripps-ahead-of-gws-jet-josh-kelly/news-story/93d9f6ae59654be8ff8e645ab1a586c0 ...and Jack Viney doesn't even get a mention. Criteria was " They have to be under 25 right now" and " it is based on what they have produced this year and in recent seasons, not what they might produce in the future." How Jack Viney doesn't make this list I can only think is an oversight. My view is that he sits quite comfortably top five, if not top three. Whilst Jack hasn't yet again reached his pulsating best again in 2018, I've actually been impressed with the level of output and impact he has made in his handful of games to date off the back of an interrupted, injury plagued preseason. Think he is building nicely and full expect him explode in comming weeks. ...come on Jack - tear the Pies a new one!

    Must admit, I get a little sickened by the talk about trading in and out. I don't say don't do it selectively, but every time a name is mentioned, folks start talking about trading out players like a meat market. If a player like Tyson comes to the coach and wants out, that's another thing. However, if the mateship and culture is as good as is being stated, then it is important that we keep as many as our existing group as possible. We have a talented list and we will always need depth. Loyalty to the Club and to your mates is an important ingredient of any successful club.

    I believe Gus was in rehab when I arrived. Was participating in main group drills by the time I left. Don't remember him being too hindered by anything.

    I'm not suggesting Keilty hasn't done this, but this quote about Petty was telling: "Petty has impressed for the Casey Demons in the VFL, especially with his ability to pick up Melbourne's defensive concepts and play his role in the system the club is trying to implement"

    Great to have Pedo onboard, ain't it? A big pack-splitter, a great mark these days, good for 2-3 goals a game, hungry for the game and wins to the MFC. A balanced inclusion making our fwd line terrifying for the Filth. Suspect a very big score this match, now. We have to have something to overcome the umpires' frees for the Filth inside the 50m - that will go on and on all game.

    Billings is a big ‘what might have been’ for us. Roos has said that the Kelly vs Tyson/Pick 9 debate is void as we rated Billings at pick 2 that year. Billings vs Tyson, Salem and Hunt... I think we’ve come out ahead. https://www.google.com.hk/amp/s/coupler.foxsports.com.au/api/v1/article/amp/afl/paul-roos-reveals-new-spin-on-2013s-blockbuster-trade-between-melbourne-and-gws-giants/news-story/20f8f893a20fcd0c57cf90e413938e49

    Yeah BF, I am keen on him as a player because, from the fence, I look into the players' minds before each stage of their activity and linkage to the rest of the team by whatever method options they might consider, or have as part of their arsenal, or have done, and in this regard, Pedo does it most comfortably well. To me, Pedo does it all well for a bigger bloke at just on 194cm and represents one of our best targets when the going gets tough. Have always analysed footy players that way and in particular, just knew what Robbie, for example, was going to do and how he would do it. Almost the same for the Ox, Lyon, Stinger, Icke, Hughes, Alves, and so on but sometimes, pleasantly surprised by their actions and effectiveness. It is into this category that Clarrie resides, for example, in my scrutineer fantasies on footy. With Pedo, while we have him before retirement or trade, my Demon buddies and I could not fathom why he was not used more regularly despite the nandy-pandy comments of those who bleat repeatedly with a frighteningly superior blend of wisdom and cant.The emphasis is always on cant and so, it all is of little stimulation in the football appreciation process.

    Despite his absence, Vanders represented a competitive player who would’ve fit nicely into our team.
