  1. Corey Maynard

    Yes, Redleg. 100 games achieved would be excellent for Corey and we'd reckon he could probably get there, too. Just because he is 26 years old does not really mean a great deal to me. What is signifies is sporting experience at a highly competitive level and a certain type of conditioning that has served him well for many observers so far, despite footy being a highly differential code of sport. If he is impressive to those who have seen him and also those with real knowledge beyond that of a mere supporter - eg: Gary Lyon - then maybe one could reserve opinions at this point or give credit to acknowledged potential. I'd reckon he was spot on for our team and have been impressed with his game and skills yet I have only seen him twice. Let's hope it turns more favourably as the year progresses.
  2. Nathan Jones calf injury

    Something like that ain't going to stop Jonesy. Mr Reliable, Mr Committed and Mr 'Can Do' will pull through quicker than expected. He wants a flag and I reckon he knows better than us that he has the side to do it!
  3. Preseason Training - Week commencing 20/11/17

    Going to be phascinating, WJ. It's has been a long, thoughtful wait - or so it seems, this year.
  4. Corey Maynard

    Nope, I cannot recall this from Corey, either. He was a bright light that was hit hard and then a series of injuries. Hell, he settled quickly to 'have a go' at the ball. Teamwork was following...
  5. 2008 Redrafted

    Guessing who will emerge at the top of performance comparisons and status is naive in a team sport. General performance is the measure that is most important. It is full of variables so extensive these cannot be fully listed. Team fit and function on most occasions is the closest reality measure we can make.
  6. Draft Pick #29 (ex 27)

    Coleman-Jones looks very much like a young Gary Dempsey, of Footscray fame. Great o/head mark, fine low possessions, too; keen to get the ball and handpasses somewhat brilliantly. Forget the kicking - that type of feed-out pack player will learn to kick quickly, akin to Clarry at the moment. Would be an excellent pickup for the Dees.
  7. Pre-season injury list

    These are two required players for the Dees: Kent and Vandenberg.
  8. STABBING IN THE DARK by Whispering Jack

    It would be phantastique, yes. Fritsch, Petruccelle and Lever as the main MFC pick-ups for the 2018 season and then, there would be no need to call on Rex Hunt to go ape-[censored] over the calls - every Dees supporter would be heard en masse doing that for him across 100 minutes of football, every week.
  9. Draft Pick #29 (ex 27)

    Ronald-Oxenblood-Tulip was a good Demon name, too....
  10. Casey Demons 2018

    I would love to know how van der Haar is progressing...his old man was sharp! Wasn't too bad as a mobile utility, either,
  11. Pre-season injury list

    Good onyer, Kenty. Hope a full recovery is near.
  12. Preseason Training - Week commencing 13/11/17

    Thanks for that
  13. The Bayley Fritsch Thread

    That's only because he is blind in one eye and has 5/20 vision in his 'good' eye. So there. At least he is trying.
  14. 2018 Membership Thread

    That is a real weakness of interstate 'armchair' membership. However, the luncheon at their Richmond pub not far away from the 'G, hosted by the Club and Robbo last season, is a worthwhile freebie if you can get to that home game, around August.
  15. Preseason Training - Week commencing 13/11/17

    Really have a good deal of support for Kent, as I have stated previously. He has some great attributes culled by a shoulder dislocation that is a cruel, longer-term injury at best. Yep, it would be nice to see him back on the training track and interacting with the team very closely, particularly after the season that he has endured. It is not a great sign that he has perhaps missed early sessions by remaining on his holidays, if that is the reason - despite the 20 November schedule for return. Kent is capable of great movement and positioning, and can actually kick some wonderful goals 'on the run'. He is tough, although not as tough as he was prior to his injury, of course. Really looking forward to his return to the body of the kirk - a needed player and I hope his injury can largely be regarded as 'behind him'.
