    Casey V Geelong R16

    Can't understand why you post this. What is the point of putting up a preferred team. Its pretty much completely useless information. Maybe you are in an alternative Universe.

    Mr Jones

    That's the problem for Bugg isn't it ? He cannot kick straight on a regular basis. 30-40m out directly in front & he is about a 30% chance. You cannot play forward unless you can nail those. Bugg's future is as a run with player or maybe a defender. &

    GAMEDAY - Round 17

    Unless they use Vince in the midfield to replace Viney.

    Last chance for Kennedy-Harris?

    He is quick enough - not in the Garlett league but quicker than anyone else in our forward line. Dunno where the myth about him being slow started but he is definitely not slow. Anyway its about quickness of hands & decision making & reading the play as much as about leg speed. Some players don't mature until they are 23/24 - lets hope JKH is one of them.

    Is Jeffy Garlett just trade bait now?

    Come on guys its pretty obvious that he has the $hitz or the sulks after being dropped & is just going through the motions at Casey. Don't forget he pretty much did the same when he was at Carlton. Its disappointing but you can't have a rule for Jeffy and another rule for everyone else. He is on good money & if he doesn't stop sulking I can't see any alternative to delisting him.

    Casey Demons v Coburg - VFL Round 12

    That is complete bull$ittt. That would be the same Goody who was part of the team that decided Dunn wasn't up to AFL & consistently played Oscar McD when he was barely VFL level let alone AFL standard. Frost makes errors but he will learn & he has all the attributes to make it at AFL level but has been starved of opportunity.

    New CEO - Gary Pert

    We won't know if Pert's any good until after he's been in the job a while: I thought Ray Ellis was going to be good I thought Schwab was going to be good I thought MacNamee was going to be good I thought Harris was going to be good Etc Etc Etc

    Channel 7 WANT MORE GOALS!

    It stopped being "our great game" when it changed from being 18 on 18 to 22 on 22 - effectively 8 more players in the game. Add additional levels of fitness so they can run all day & it the game has become a continual, congested rugby scrum.

    Neville Jetta

    I used to think we had been dudded & Leroy & Lewis were easily the 2 best Jettas but Nev has proved me wrong & gone past both of them. His peripheral vision and ability to deliver the ball cleanly & to advantage are second to none.

    Its a ruthless game & there is no room for sentimentality if you want to be successful. I love the bloke but reckon he is struggling & lucky to be in the 22. Should be delisted at years end.

    Josh Wagner

    Seems to totally lack any aggression or physical edge to his game. Reminds me very much of Col Garland. ATM he is a back up player & not in my best 22 but still handy to have. Would love to see him develop a bit of "mongrel'.

    Hawks on Sunday - Predictions

    Nothing bizarre about it. The last 3 times we played them we have had their measure but only managed to win 1 of those mainly due to lack of composure & experience. We have improved from 2017 more than they have.

    Viney update: Out for Round 1

    My word I blame the Club. Nothing hindsight about it. Thought it was dumb then & still think it was dumb. Why on earth risk a champion player. We know how difficult foot injuries can be.

    Robbo (Mark) doesn't think we'll make finals

    Typical Melbourne supporters getting in a tiz over the media. Every season at least one team that is hyped up falls in a hole & fails to deliver. We could have made the finals the last 2 years & fell over when things got a bit hard for the precious possums. Regardless of injuries our losses to North & Collingwood were pretty gutless & we didn't deserve to play finals.
