    I'm addicted and cant help myself!

    I was there is 1964 and I remember very little other than Gabo's run. These pictures remind me (copied from old slides). The last one is at first bounce.

    My daughter saw Jack Watts in the gym at Casey RACE. She didn't say who else was there

    No, not in my view. He seems much slimmer. As does most of them, even Pedo looks thinner.

    Training - Wednesday 11th February, 2015 at Casey Fields

    I was there from just after 9 to finish up about 10.40. Not many on lookers barely a dozen at the start. First training for me this season and the change in body shape of many is very noticeable esp. Fitzpatrick. Rehab consisted of Watts, Hogan, Vince (I think I saw him once!). No shows were Roos, Riley, King I saw Hogan do a few laps and then he heading in about 9.30. Didn't see Garland at all until the end of training (maybe inside) and I saw Garlett (wearing 33) and I think vandenberg at the start doing short kicks to each other then not seen after that. White appeared mid train but didn't see him on the park. Maybe they were in rehab on the other side of the ground? Forwards did a lot of leading and goal kicking. Mainly Dawes (who looked a bit bored by the end) Gawn, Fitzpatrick, Pedersen, Petracca, Bail & JKH. Gawns leading was good. Jamar & Spencer did all the ruck work. Toumpas was very visible playing the outside receive and runner. Looked sharp but up close he is a small unit compared to the others, same with Michie. It was a light session I feel Last out there were Jamar doing some skills with a coach and Salem doing one on one defensive punching with Rawlings, as well as a few doing goal kicking and yes, Cross was one of them. There was a group of young mums with there kids at the gate and most of the players stopped had a chat and signed jumpers. Very approachable.

    Just been listening to Finey on SEN rip into both Caroline Wilson and Patrick Smith for their journalistic "style" in constantly demanding for resignations etc. He just finished a 20 minute rant. It was brilliant.

    Training - Monday 21st January, 2013 @ Casey Fields

    I heard one of the coaches call out "Gawn, Stark, Sylvia and Toumpas" when assembling the rehab group. So Stark it is.

    AFL investigation

    My recollection of the time (2009) was that there was alot of talk about whether MFC would or would not try and to get that extra pick. It was in open discussion on radio, print media, amoung members and workmates. The Ox was a very strong advocate not to win games and there were many discussions by listeners both for and against the idea. My point here is that (provided my dodgy memory is holding up) it was something in the public domain and as such the AFL must have heard all this chatter, If we are charged and I say IF, then AD should be a witness for us. He should be asked why did the AFL not stop this chatter like it did when Geelong and MFC talked about third part deals to keep Abblett and Scully? If it was illegal in 2009 then why did the AFL not say something to MFC prior to these last few games to ensure it did not happen? Those with better memories than I will, I am sure, come forth. I wonder what CW thoughts were on this in 2009? I don't remember any tirade from her or the Age after we lost "that" game.

    AFL investigation

    It is interesting that on the 'ology site this is all she posted. "Just posted this on Demonland - looks like the AFL will officially charge MFC, Connolly, Bailey & Schwab with tanking." Nothing else and no replies at all !!!!!!!

    Who will be in the new Leadership group

    I don't see (at this stage) how Dawes could get into the LG when he has spent all of his time in the rehab group doing circle work on another oval. Maybe when he starts in the main group, presumably after the Christmas break, his leadership quailites come to the fore. If he is added to the LG now it woud clearly be a political appointment by Neeld. Neels has already stated that the co-Captains would remain for 2013.

    Updating the MFC website?

  14. I got there at 3pm and they were already well underway. Joining the main group were Sylvia, Evans, Kent, Turlich, Clisby and Stark. I didn't see Matt Jones, Hogan or Trengove (obviously). The rehab group was Grimes, Dunn, Dawes, Gawn and Clark and they were running on one of the other ovals. Watts was just doing some gentle jogging but not for long. He disappeared inside soon after. Taggert was also doing laps Clark came back half way through and also went inside. Training was sharp and as hard as usual, not the "light" session as mentioned although it was all finished by 4.30. They did the usual drills. Davey surprised me, he was quick on the lead and took one grab marks above his head 5-6 times in a row, but like all of the forwards his shots for goal were fairly poor. Byrnes was particularly poor kicking 1 out of the 5-6 shots I saw him take. Fizpatrick was again prominent in the 300m sprints, clearly the fastest of the big guys. Sylvia was lagging at the back with Crouch. Jetta and Davey stuggled on the repetative sprints also Gillies and Macdonald in their sprints. Barry did very well in all of what I saw him do and Pedersen likewise. Tynan looked good, moved well and kicked well as did Strauss and Evans, Toumpas moves well but he's not as big as his photos suggest, at least next to his team mates he looks light. Stark and Clisby did laps after the first few drills but are quite light framed as you would expect. Terlich moved and kicked well and with good pace as did Tapscott. All the usual seniors did well, Jones, Frawley, Garland but I was really concentrating on the 'fringe' guys. I don't take notes so this is what I remember.
  15. According to the Casey Demons Support Group e-mail, training is at Casey Fields on Monday 17th along with the Christmas party for kids

    Adrian Anderson Quits

    I was interested in this paragraph from the AFL website "Anderson's pre-Christmas departure confirms he won't see the controversial Melbourne tanking investigation through to its conclusion.'" Seems it is no longer a "cut and dried'' event. Are some elements of the media seeing this as a witch hunt too?

    WANTED: Robbie Flower

    Page 144 of the book "The Grand Old Flag" - The History of the Melbourne Football Club by Lynda Carroll has a full page action shot of Robbie F and page 146 has a full page photo of 'Checker' Hughes. An excellent source of older photos. I can scan them if you don't have a copy

    Col Sylvia in 2013

    My observations of Sylvia over the 3 Casey sessions I have seen, is that he is on a modified training program. Mainly running and handball skills. He does look very fit already. Chocko Royal was gathering a group together for some close in work and Sylvia was standing nearby. Chocko asked him whether he is "in on this one" and he replied no. He did a lot of running with Grimes and others last week on the other oval. To me, he seems to be allowed to do some extra work if he wants once he has done his allocated workload. I think they are just making sure he gets through the pre-season uninjured. I guess we'll see over the next few weeks. One thing is for sure, the conditioning guys are all over the players making sure they do exactly what has been allocated to them. Players were even asking if it was OK to have a few shots on goal. The answer came back "I'd rather you didn't". They even chip the players if they decide to climb over the fence onto the ground rather than walk throught the gate!
  21. Pedersen played both ends during the day. He looks a bit short for either role but did take one good overhead mark when forward and appears to be an OK kick. Fitzy, in my view, is probably more a stand in for Clark should he not be ready for the main gig. I can't see Clark, Dawes & Fitzy playing forward together......too cumbersome for my mind. I thought Hannath was the pick of the other talls when playing up forward. Kicked a boomer of a goal from a long way out and snapped another almost over his shoulder. Moves well but a bit light for a genuine ruckman at this stage but early days yet for him.
  22. I was at Casey from 9.15 to midday and they were still at it as I left. Just doing their final kick to kicks, I guess. Everyone was there and participated in something except Grimes. He was just walking around the ground when I got there but had a heavy bandage on his left leg (I think left). He wan't there long and spent the rest of the time in the gym. Also noticed Dunn in the rehab or others group but by the end was also heavily bandaged on one leg. So much happens at these sessions it's hard to keep track of everything. Trengove doesn't look right. The other week he looked like he had just got out of a sick bed. He was very quiet again today. and he looked very slow when he had to chase. Jordie Mc looked sharp and a lot quicker than I had seen him before. Tappy disappeared after the sprints and I don't recall seeing him anytime later. Evans continues to just run but a smooth runner he is. Ditto for Toumpas. Jetta was good in the drills Big Maxy Gawn did quite a bit of running and is looking good. Taggert fumbled a lot I was keen on seeing Gillies and Pedersen to get some idea whether they are first 22 or not but I couldn't see alot of them in the drills. Hannath looks good. Good ball handling skills and kicked some good goals in the drills. I like him. This session was not as good as the last Casey session, not as crisp but then the drills were different.
