    Mid tier development

    I believe appointing Rawlings as coach of Casey was an excellent move by MFC. All players who have gone back have shown great committment to Casey, and all the young players have shown great development. I am satisfied that the leadership of the coach as been very beneficial in this great atmosphere at Casey. Go Dees.

    Tipping on AFL web page

    I have been tipping on the AFL page as well as the MFC web page. Last round when I checked the results I found that one of my tips had been changed from what I submitted. It was the Fremantle/Carlton game. I tipped Freo and the results said I tipped carlton. I was annoyed with this but just accepted it and moved on. This week I find that three tips have changed from the ones I submitted, namely the Collingwood/Carlton, West Coast/Essendon, and Hawthorn/GC. I tipped West Coast, Collingwood and Hawthorn. The Tips came back as Essendon, Carlton and GC. One in my favour and two against. I sent an email to the tipping people and received the usual response. "we have thoroughly checked our site and there is nothing wrong with it" , In other words they say its my fault. They also say they have received no complaints from any one else. I now have 83 tips instead of 85. My question is has anyone else had a similiar problem with this tipping. The same tips submitted to the Melbourne Football Club have all been listed correctly. I am interested to hear from anyone else tipping with the AFL/ Thankyou Go Dees

    The Jack Watts in 2018 Thread

    take your blinkers off mate. Jack Watts played his normal game today. Difference being he is appreciated by coach and team mates. Don't forget more than 70% of our supporters wanted him to stay. Jack did not leave the Dees, he was sent packing. I enjoyed watching him today as I always have. We have to concentrate on our team now , so please don't bag jack

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 1

    with due respect that is rubbish. Those three helped to get us where we were at the time. Simon Badloss panicked and dropped all three. I was very confident when I seen the team last night. Tonight I still think we can win but am concerned with final selection.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 1

    Leaving Tyson out is a strange decision. We lost games last year at the selection table. When they dropped frost. Salem and Watts late in the year at the same time was when the rot set in. As I have said before I don't think we can play Fritsch and Hannan in the same team. Maynard is strong and in and under but he is not Tyson. Maybe brayshaw's teeth keep him out. I still think we will win but strongly believe Tyson should be playing. Missing Viney, Mcdonald andTyson is a lot of skill to cover.

    Match Preview and Team Selection - Round 1

    I not sure there is room in this team for both Fritsch and Hannan. I would be playing Fritsch and Bugg. Maynard has probably done enough but so has Billy Stretch. There will be some very disappointed guys today. However these hard selections are good for success.
  7. I was at the official team photo day. Dom arrived with ice strapped on his calf. so report that he did it on Saturday a bit rich.

    STABBING IN THE DARK by Whispering Jack

    you have more confidence than me Mach5. King and Filipovic at best are back up ruckmen for Gawn. OMac may prove to be a good forward, Weideman may make it but will never be a back up ruckman. Someone mobile like Hayes could develop into a taller forward/ruckman for when Pedo retires, and play in the same side as Gawn. I really think this is an area where we are lacking. We still do not have much size over 195cm, as a lot of sides have. Ben Brown, two metre Peter and others still cause us problems . I would love to have a good tall floating forward that would give us that same pressure.

    STABBING IN THE DARK by Whispering Jack

    by not selecting a player like Sam Hayes we may have missed the opportunity to find a replacement for Pedersen in 2019. Someone who would compliment Gawn and give us that tall to monster opposition backs.

    The Jack Watts in 2018 Thread

    big chance that may never happen!
  13. Well said LH. You beat me to it. Only thing we differ on is I think it was a sneaky dig at the coach. Amazing two players who wanted to stay say similar comments.

    STABBING IN THE DARK by Whispering Jack

    I think we should be looking for some tall players. We always seem to get monstered by tall marking forwards like ben brown and we lack that same pressure. Other than big Maxxy, King and Filipovic we have no body around 200cm. Jack was our next tallest at 196cm and of course Simon Goodwin ( or should I say Simon Badloss) sacked him. I would think we would be looking at Sam Hayes or Charlie Ballard, or even Connor Ballanden if we can wrestle him from the Lions.

    Farewell Jack Watts

    I appreciate your view even though I don't agree. however your comment about "New boy:" is poor form. I have been on this forum since before 2010 and read most items . I have not posted much because I haven't bothered because there is far too many Il informed comments. But This particular topic is very close to my heart.
