Casey Demons 2018

Recommended Posts

The word from out at Casey is that recently retired MFC 141 gamer Colin Garland who will have coaching roles with the club’s AFLW and VFLW teams in 2018 could also turn out during the season with the Casey Demons. Delisted rookie Mitch White is also said to be a likely recruit.

With the axing of the Development League, the Casey Demons’ VFL list will be reduced significantly.

One player off to the Frankston Dolphins for their return season to the VFL is Jake Lovett.

I believe that Tom Couch who has joined the coaching panel might also put in some games. 

Could be an experienced team which is what generally wins this competition nowadays.

Colin Garland is what footy ought a be about.

Have we had any better a clubman, then Garlo?

Takes the train to the footy.

just a great fella I reckon.  A real community spirited person imo.

What are the circulating words about Jake Lovett? What is he like as a developing footballer and does he bear any similarity with his father? If he has one ounce of his father's talent, he may well be a great talent for us down the track.

He's a one paced, nuggetty onballer. Hasn't shown enough at Development level to suggest he'll be a good VFL player, lit alone an AFL one.

Thanks for this advice. Maybe it is too early to extract expectations from one so young. His father was a little slow at times but read the play and his roles extraordinarily well.

I had read in a local Peninsula newspaper that Lefau had signed to paly with Crib Point next year, but I hope I am wrong.  He looked extremely promising in the games I saw him play.

I would love to know how van der Haar is progressing...his old man was sharp! Wasn't too bad as a mobile utility, either,

Collis and Lefau are gone.  Club also wanted Hulett to sign on but he has gone to local footy.

After the draft, 3 TAC players who missed out and may not get a rookie chance

Tom Murphy - Stingrays

Reece Piper - Stingrays

Aiden Quigley - Power

I’d invite down to Casey for a tryout and consider the MFC Casey pipeline.

Thomas Murphy off to Kangas. Quigley is still the young man that Casey needs to get onboard

So without a development league where do the fellas on our list who aren't up to scratch to play seniors at Casey play?

They play with a local club until they get the call up. Likely train twice a week at Casey. It’s a tough call for the fringe like Mitch Cox and Jordan Moncrieff. Some will just stay in local footy or tryout at Frankston

Will Collis. 

I think Dylan Collis is a bright young player and will give Casey a crack again.

No where pretty much 

Hulett was dropped for the Semi-Final v Richmond this year therefore he didn't play  for anyone that week

But Id think unless you are really screwing up they'd force you to play VFL seniors even if you aren't up to scratch

So D167 does that mean if all 44 of our list are fit and sober than 22 play for the Dees and 22 for Casey and all the Casey boys have to bugger off... they can come and share a cheroot with me at Byron...

Pretty much yeah

To be on a VFL list you have to nominate a local club so they'd go play for them that week/have the week off

It's going to be interesting if we don't have many injuries - particularly to talls.

Let's say Gawn, Hogan, TMac, Lever, OMac and Frost (I don't have him in my best 22 but many do) are playing at MFC

It's going to be interesting to fit Pedersen, Weideman, Petty, King, T.Smith, Keilty and Filipovic along with Hutchins in the Casey team.

I guess a couple of injuries are likely ...

Certainties in life - death, taxes and footy injuries.  Unless it’s the Richmond footy club in 2017 when only one player, Nathan Drummond, was injured for more than 2 weeks!

I think Jack Trengove was up there as well as a clubman! Not quite sure why the Club couldn’t have similarly created a role for him at the Casey Demons, particularly when he won their B&F this year? 😳

Trengove wanted to play AFL and Port have given him the chance.

Casey should offer a role to Lachlan Hansen. At 29, he is too good to retire and would be good for him to come back home to the shire.  Like Hutchins, he would really lift Casey up.  Casey only have Weideman and Smith as key forwards and hopefully Weideman plays 11-12+ games at in MFC in 2018.

Corey Wagner signed on. Ex Kangas listed and played 8 AFL games with the Roos over 2016 and 2017. To play with his brother Josh plus to show he has some small forward role to play. Very handy player.
