    Shadow Sparrow

    He fits at Casey learning his craft and hopefully he is good enough to play 100+ games for the club. Our midfield depth isn't that great outside the regular AFL players, we need the next group of midfielders developing at Casey and hopefully pushing for selection mid to late in the year. Whose spot they take is irrelevant at this stage

    Majak Daw seriously injured

    It's an epidemic, young men committing suicide or attempting to commit suicide is a massive issue facing society not just the AFL. Most of use grew up with the toughen up attitude and we never communicated our emotions to anyone. It is very hard for my generation and ones older than me to understand what the pressures are on young people that would lead to them even thinking about taking their lives. It is bloody scary, we can't have the mind set that generations before dealt with the pressures of life so why can't these young men. Men are garbage at talking about emotions, add in modern technology it causing more isolation. If boys had an issues when I was growing up we had a punch on and moved on, these days it is worse, social media allows people to attack others and play emotional games for long periods of time. Not sure what anyone can do about it and something I am working very hard at with my boy is listening, it doesn't come naturally to me and it is hard sometimes really understand what he is really saying, but I'm there and I hope as he gets older he will always know that I'm there to listen.

    Training - Friday, 7th December 2018

    We had pace setters a few years ago, from memory a couple were boundary umpires, the others middle distance track athletes. They are great to use as they understand what pace they need to run at to hit the time targets.

    Demons Grand Plan for Yarra Park Training HQ

    Got to love Politics. Both major parties need to bow down to the Greens as they really hold the balance of power and to win the election you need Green preference votes. Only if Dan Andrews didn't keep the Greens happy with the East West link we would have a completed freeway linking all our freeways. We are 4 years behind with a new project that really is a band aid. Inner city need to get off the Green band wagon so one party can make proper decisions rather than worry about keeping a minority happy

    Phantom Drafts - 2018

    From pick 30 on is going to be interesting, Sydney, Collingwood, North and the Bulldogs would be using the points from there picks to cover F/S and NGA picks, you will find some picks will move 5-8 picks forward. Picks 26, 32, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 44, 45, 47, 48, 49 could all be used as points rather than picks.

    2019 Fixture

    I think we will be the last game of the Easter Round, rather than the first game of the Anzac round.

    Delisting, Trade and FA discussion 2018

    The best thing about picks we 54 and 61ish, basically these picks will move 8 to 10 spots forward as the pies, north, bulldogs and Sydney have stockpiled picks between 30 and 50 for academy and fs picks.
