Cam Pedersen, Tim Smith and Mykelti Lefau.

Casey went for a more mobile ruck set up to counter Geelong tall Zac Smith and it worked.

Mitch King was left out of the team. Lachie Filipovic is injured.

It is taking so-called political correctness to an absurd level. Even my wife uses the term pussycats when she refers to our two cats and she is a fundamentalist feminist. 

So one can say pussycat but not [censored] cat?

Weird PC censorship

Mmmmmm.  Sounds like we start from scratch again re listing developing ruckmen maybe.

QUALIFIED by KC from Casey

The Casey Demons shrugged off back to back losses to fellow finalists Box Hill Hawks and Williamstown on Saturday to record a comprehensive 89 point win over Geelong VFL at Casey Fields. 

The Cats are one of only two teams to have inflict defeat on the Demons on their home turf this year but they were stunned by a withering four goal opening onslaught in the first seven minutes and conceded seven goals to be 41 points down early in the second quarter before offering their only piece of resistance for the game with three unanswered goals of their own to reduce Casey’s lead to 22 at the halfway mark of the term. 

Unfortunately for the visitors, that was the only shot they fired for the game as the Demons regained the momentum to hold a comfortable lead at the main break. They then emphatically bulldozed their way through a final half filled with spectacular highlights and a stunning display of team football that has sent an ominous warning to the rest of the competition. 

Geelong was fielding 17 AFL-listed players (five more than Casey) but was reduced to a rabble conceding 13 of the game’s last 14 goals with the Demons scoring the last nine on the trot. 

The pleasing aspect of the win was that it produced a couple of unlikely heroes in little known youngsters Will Collis and Cory Machaya who have had limited opportunities over the past few years and were playing in part by dint of the growing number of injuries incurred recently to the Melbourne playing list. 

Collis, who only played two games during the season, was a surprise selection, but had an immediate impact with the opening goal in the first minute and followed it up with a strong tackle that was rewarded with his and the team’s second. He kicked his third major in the third quarter and in between, did a sterling defensive job on dangerous Cat Jackson Thurlow.

Small forward Cory Machaya has been around the club for a few seasons and, like yesterday’s teammates Collis and Mykelti Lefau played in the club’s Development League premiership team last year. He was a menace to the opposition all day wherever he played but particularly in front of goal where he scored goals in each of the last three quarters - his, second, a stunner kicked over the shoulder while looking the other way, was a highlight.

Coach Jade Rawlings went with a shorter ruck combination against Geelong’s 206cm giant Zac Smith and it worked a treat with Cam Pedersen, Tim Smith and Mykelti Lefau shouldering the hard work at stoppages and while they might not have won many hit-outs at ruck duels, they came away with the clearances and won out around the ground with their marking and attacking football. Pedersen scored two goals in the opening term and hammered an early nail in the Cat’s coffin with his third early in the second before finishing with four for the game.

The Casey Demons have been under pressure in defence of late but they received a boost in this game with the superb form of key defenders Declan Keilty and Harry Petty, the latter keeping Geelong’s Esava Ratugolea dislocating a finger before quarter time. Together with returning defenders Jayden Hunt and Joel Smith they played a big role in limiting the Cats to a mere four goals for the afternoon.

Hunt started slowly on return from an ankle injury but worked his way into the game and had an outstanding third quarter while Smith, solid early down back, was moved forward where he kicked two second half goals. Pat McKenna was on fire early with two goals but was off injured for most of the second half.

Mitch Hannan came back strongly from a knee injury with a three goal performance which included a magnificent hanger that would have a place in any mark of the year discussion. Tom Bugg missed last week as the AFL carry over player, managed 23 disposals before sitting out much of the final term with Hannan and Joel Smith, perhaps to keep the trio fresh in case they are required for Friday night’s AFL elimination final against the Cats’ seniors.

The Demons now have a week’s break before their preliminary final against the winner of next week’s semi final between minor premiers Richmond and the winner of today’s elimination final Collingwood v Essendon.

Before the game, Casey assistant coach Sam Radford was interviewed on SEN. He said that the selection committee had decided to go with the smaller ruck group. This meant that there was no place in the side for King. I think Angus Scott was left out in favour of younger players like Collis and Machaya which also turned out to be a good move.

That’s the first time I’ve heard of an MFC listed player being dropped from the side when there’s no lower side for him to go to. Brutal.

Keilty and Petty 1st and 2nd BOG in a thumping finals win...  how good is that.

I was a fan of getting Steven May a couple of months ago, but hes not required.

O Mac, Lever, Frost, Petty, J Smith, Keilty.....    we bat very deep for tall/intercept backmen.

It’s a shame that’s what 3 years or so on the list amounted to when he seemed to have potential early on. Perhaps he had already been told he wouldn’t be renewed and threw in the towel.

That’s footy I guess.

Oscar - still not sure he's up to AFL level as more than depth
Lever - still not sure he can stop an opponent
Frost - in great form, will it last? Huge test this week
Petty - played 1 AFL game and it was a stinker, I'm a big fan, but it's too early to tell
J Smith - another I'm a fan of, but is a 3rd tall option
Keilty - never been given a shot at AFL, VFL form has been up and down for 2 years on the list

If there's a chance to upgrade from Oscar to Steven May at the right price I'm taking it

Without getting too far off topic all I'll say is if the club really loved Oscar wouldn't he be signed up right now? Only regular best 22 player out of contract.

I'm not suggesting they'll trade him, everything I've heard is the coaches really like him. But I think it's logical given there's no rumour of outside interest, and there's no reason he'd move for the common reasons (playing time, go home factor, success) the most likely reason is a dispute over value. The club has been very quick to sign up players they value, which I assume is because they offer a fair market rate and get the deals done. A strong finals campaign will change my opinion on Oscar pretty quickly so hopefully he can deliver.

It's all off topic. My main point is good VFL games doesn't mean we're locked and loaded at key defender. Glad Petty played well, thought he was tiring after a long first season, hopefully with a bye he can have 2 more great finals. Also glad Keilty played well, he's fighting for a spot on the list and does a fair bit right, a consistent end to the year would surely see him given another year, which would be great for him and for demonland!
