Both players stiff to miss out on granny berths but as always in such cases they may be considering a future elsewhere.

Byrnes would be a good fit for us. 27yo hard bodied small mid/forward with finals/flag experience.

Goldsack also has some good attributes and has direct links to Neeld.

Thoughts?

Don't want to pay overs too much for older players. Bargains is what we need.

We still have to find our own young small forwards. I'm also running short of belief with Wonna's dedication. Lawrence I like so Far.

We quickly have to find our mosquito squadron.

Think Aussie will be delisted and rookied.

Byrnes is a hack. Goldsack may be a good fit.

I quite like Goldsack as a player (good size, strong and the right age for us) but I don't know where he would fit in our backline. No doubt Mark Neeld would some views on this.

I'm not keen on Byrnes. Too old for us, and I'd prefer to play Aaron Davey as a small forward and develop a youngster (Lawrence?) for that role in the longer term.

Having a good physique does not necessarily mean "hard bodied".

He looks big enough but is more of an outside player, he can go in hard, but that is not his forte.

I think there are better options for us.

Such as? Who's going to kick 35+ goals for us next season and pinch hit on the ball?

Davey would seem the clear choice but his form is a major worry.

I am not exactly sure who is another choice, as I have not spent time thinking about it, however I dont really rate him, so I would love you to put up some other choices. Not sure who else is available.

I would like to have Davey stay in the forward line and I would also like to see what the new coaches can do with our current crop of platers.

If there was a really good option out there I am all for a trade, but not Byrnes for me.

Goldsack has some currency. Depends on what we could get him for. Could Goldsack make our best 22? Not interested in trading for depth players.

Byrnes is okay, but not really what we need.

BUMP

Goldsack would be a great fit for us partic if we lose Rivers. Can play fwd and back is a hard body and goes at it hard.

Can see why Neeld would be interested. And wouldn't cost us an arm and a leg. Played a terrific game last night against WCE

Byrnes looked good today in the VFL against Werribee. Mainly because he can take a mark and kick to a target successfully.

Not bad attributes for a footballer. Seriously though one of our biggest problems i reckon is how poor our field kicking is. It is one of the reasons Watts stands out.

    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

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
