    Finals Tickets

    I got this last week with 4 credit cards. Rang the banks no blocks on my cards. Spoke to someone at Ticketek and they now claim my card must be scammed and so they are investigating. What are they investigating? Just own up to it being an almighty ba...s up. MCC have had a number of complaints regarding the same issue. This week didnt bother. Will line up early like last week.

    Open Training - Saturday, 1st September, 2018

    DV8 I'm not sure if you know that the Club have been having open training sessions like this for many years with BBQ, Coffee and Demon Shop always operating. They are usually at the end of the year and before the season starts and then the game against Collingwood. The Club does not make any money from the BBQ's - all funds go back to the Demon Army to support them in their endeavours. I thought today was especially well organised by the Club having some of the Membership staff there to answer any queries for the coming finals and also 2019 memberships. The Club was hoping that there would be around 1200 at the training session given the weather but there near were to 2000 and one of the best things to see was that there a huge number of children there in the red and blue. Our future. So I do take issue with you that "the Club continually leaves the supporters out of their thoughts". Of course there is always the issue of the value of our supporter base and if the Club did not have that as a focus you would I am sure be crying that the Administration were inept. The cost of the day is part and parcel of what is "pay back" for the magnificent and longsuffering support that the Club has had over many years. Today was a huge success so now all we have to do is put it on the park (MCG)

    Casey Demons v Northern Blues - Round 18

    Hunt was in a small Group training at Gosch's around 10.00am. As I was driving past at the time so I couldnt tell how long they had been out there but there didnt seem any holding back. He was with a group that included Keilty so I am presuming it was the Casey group of players. May be back sooner than we think and would be itching to prove himself to make the finals.

    Just what I expected. Acceptance of the unacceptable. My point is they expect criticism when due but some of what is said here is just over the top.

    I don't comment too much about the spurious statements made here but sometimes it just goes too far. I had a player parent comment about some of the things that were said about certain footballers on this site. They were not about his son but he confirmed that some parents and family read the site and were upset with the viciousness of some of the comments made. I'm not saying you don't have the right to voice your opinion as to whom should be picked or not get another contract but the way they are being embellished is distressing to some people. I would hope that prior to voicing those opinions you would be happy to hear such comments made about your son or daughter, nephew or niece.

    Queens Birthday Training BBQ

    As per usual the Club is having an open training session prior to the big game on Monday. This year the training session will be on the Friday 8th June and there will be a BBQ, mascots, coffee and the Demon Shop. Proceedings will start around 9.45am and finish around 11. I suggest everyone intending to come down keep an eye on the website just in case of any last minute changes to the schedule. This game is going to be huge especially if Collingwood win this week and we also carry on our winning record. So come down to Gosch and support the Demon Army (all proceeds to go to the Demon Army to assist with the purchase of more "heads") and of course the boys. They really do enjoy having all the fans (not just Saty) come and watch.

    ET don't be like that. Wouldn't like someone else to get their nose out of joint.

    Post Match Discussion - Round 9

    And then the "oh sorry" - absolute gold - hope MH reminded him of the score in the last quarter

    Changes vs Adelaide

    Not sure if this has been covered but did anyone else think that Neville Jetta looked a little proppy in the last quarter. I cant imagine life without Nev but he looked as though he was treading water trying to chase an opposition player. Like Hogan he has an ungainly gait but this was definitely something else. Maybe Saty might be able to help with this.

    Jake Melksham

    I think looking back Jake was being played to fulfill a different role whilst missing Tom and Jack. His goal kicking talent was not being emphasised as it has now that Tom is back however he played the role for the moment which is what Goody asked of him. It is a joy to sit back and watch him not only kick great goals but be the team player that he has become.
