Geelong v Casey Scorpions 



Recommended Posts

Thanks for taking the time to keep us posted KC it is really appreciated

Look forward to your always excellent reports of the match

I do really like your report of events flavoured with just a touch of your opinion.

Your observations are rarely contradicted so I feel I learn more about the squad than from many others posters.

Will obviously be interested in your appraisal of Watts Jurrah and the other individual contributions.

I think others have stated the importance of the basis of that side our high draft picks as the future team

It is certainly going to be interesting how the "ones" go and how we are able to use the scorps as development of the squad.

GO DEES

Watts 20 disposals, 4 goals. Looks like he took being dropped in the right way, too good to languish in VFL, should be back in the seniors.

Next week:

IN: Watts & Jurrah (as sub)

OUT: Dunn & whoever doesn't play their role this week

I'd love to see Petterd, Blease and Bennel playing well back in the senior team, but want to see them playing consistently in the bests at Casey. All 3 have potential to be very good AFL players, but their deficiencies are holding them back. Let's hope these 3 develop and come on asap!

No one doubts Watts can play. Keen to know how many 1%ers to go with the goals and possessions.

Maybe gysberts needs to learn how to protect himself better. Maybe he has crap awareness and never braces for bumps and crashes well...

FCS

He puts his head over the ball,gets smashed and you have a go at him saying he has no awareness?????

Watts actually does a lot off the ball. If you look at pack marking situations, he's often the guy putting on blocks and shoving opponents out of the way. The problem is that we need him to be the one taking the mark. The big problem with his game is his tackling and repeat efforts. Generally if he's knocked out of the contest he falls over and that's the end of it. He needs to be back up and into them over and over again.

Any chance of considering the facts of what happened? Hmmm?

Doubt JUrrah would be close to selection given its his first game back. Plus he is still to deal with the interruptions of the forthcoming trial.

Not good that we have not heard Petterd being prominent from KC and others.

It will be interesting to see if Watts contested more today or relied on skill to get through at this level.

So will Wojinski be suspended for this? What about the guy who hit Gys?

Can anyone remember the last time someone was suspended after playing against Melbourne (Casey in this case)? I'm struggling to remember one in the past year.

Can we someone actually see and report on the incident?

I'd rather give Watts another week or 2 at Casey.

He really needs to earn his promotion to the senior team, moreso than others, in my book.

I don't know details, but a jaw doesn't break on it's own. It happens with high contact. If he's hit someone high with enough force to break their jaw I would think that it's a slam dunk that he'd be reported for it.

A. His head wasnt over the ball when it happened

B. i said "maybe", dnt see how its having a go at him, simply identifying a possible weakspot in his game

C. U really think its "bad luck" that the same players keep getting constant injuries? Yeah ok mate

U really make unconstructive posts sometimes boss, please think before posting

Garry Lyon (who is commentating the game today for MMM and has been watching the Scorps) said that Watts would not be back next week based on todays game - stats looks good but it wasn't overly impressive.

Point taken I just don't see how you can prepare for injuries like broken jaws. Maybe Viney should take note as well. Maybe also you could inform the rest of us peasents about what acually happened.

As was said, how about we wait until someone who actually saw the incident can fill in the details. A broken jaw does not necessarily mean a high tackle... it could be a hip making contact in a contested ball situation, could be an attempt smother gone wrong, it could be any number of things... so why immediately assume it should be a reportable offence?

Crap!!! Viney & the Gys broken jaws.

I will be [censored] if we cant get Viney with our second round pick. Especially if we finish in the bottom three!

We will stitch up GWS down the track if they make us use our first pick...

Vineys was fair, first game and a crude bump. Was hard to avoid.

Gysberts on the other hand i noticed dosnt seem to brace the best for oncomming collision. Not sure of he sees them coming or not.

I agree. Having been dropped, in the absence of a disaster in the ones, I think you need to earn back your place with a couple of 'best' performances in the twos. Consistency of effort needs to be demonstrated, I think.

P.s. it's a contact sport and broken jaws are always a possibility. I don' t think our injury list is any worse than a numb of other teams. This season we at last have some depth from which to choose.

I'm going by the report on this thread that says Wojinski laid him out with a bump.

    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
