I've been told due to sub par form during the pre season Jack Watts is probably going to be left out of the side for the season opener. I for one don't mind this, With his first real pre season under his belt I did expect a little more from him during the NAB cup/challenge. Competition in our forward line is going to be pretty fierce this year I think.

Just got back and it seems his NAB CUP form warrants selection and WILL line up on Sunday. Like I said in thread I was just passing on what I was told by the man.

Hey steamin, I'll be at the cricketers arms from midday. How about you come down and just shout us a beer with a couple of other big demon fans?

Done. I'll be wearing the new red zip up demons jacket.

Not only that, but it was an insipid kick from someone that was clearly afraid of being tackled - he crapped himself, hence the horrendous kick that was 200 meters in the air. Cost us a goal.

He profesionally put himself out of the way today, by leading into spots where he knew he would not get the ball.

He does not want it at the moment. He should be dropped on that performance.

Oh FFS, are we going to abuse him after every game?

It's going to be a loooooong season.

He did some good things. He NEVER got outmarked, not even when he had 2 players on him, and if he kicked 2 goals instead of 2 behinds everyone would be praising his performance.

I know it's hard to find players to pick on these days, what with Bruce, Miller and PJ gone, but seriously, we can't be picking apart inexperienced kids.

He just doesn't look like he wants it though, and he hesitates constantly. Every time he went near the ball i thought 'ugh he is going to mess with our flow going forward', and surely enough the crowd agreed with collective yelling/groaning. There were times were he was 1/1 or 1 on 2 and got his fist to the ball which was great, but the thing he did with his ball is the hand were pretty poor.

Funny, I only saw the second half but I saw him involved in damn near everything. Sadly, much of it will go unremarked because it won't appear on the stat's sheet, but he contributed in a huge way. Lots of pack crashing, spoiling, tapping the ball to teammates. That sort of thing. On several occasions he let himself get hit and tapped the ball to advantage. Once again he's had a game with low stats and huge amounts of work. Sooner or later the work will turn into 20+ possessions and a few goals.

I didn't think Watts was out of place or afraid of it or any of that rubbish.

I thought he worked his ass off, double and triple leads, ran to the right areas, created space, and positioned relatively well at marking contests.

True, he didn't impose himself on the game, but he is coming from a hell of a long way back physically and only now has a body that can allow him to reasonably contest at AFL level.

We have nothing to gain by dropping him, but the sky's the limit if we just allow him to settle into CHF.

That was my impression too. Definitely not one of his better days, but I was surprised at the amount of work he did in packs. He looks like he's playing without confidence though.

He looks better, his work around the ground was good and he is making some smart football decisions and getting into the right positions. Things like when everyone else was wing side of a ball up in Sydney's fwd 50 he'd be goal side. Every game we give him is worth 2 in the 2's and there are at least 4 players id have on the block before him *cough*Addam*cough*

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
