Training - Thursday 18th April, 2013

I am, for one. Happy to report back about it to those who aren't.

Won't be too good if no-one shows up after last weeks showing, could seem like we've turned our backs on them a bit. I don't know, maybe I'm over -thinking it; still, I'm happy to go to support the guys, this week could be the one where our fortunes begin to change.

Dawesy running around with the group. Sellar isn't though

Could this be seen as an indication that Dawes may make a return in this game - ease him in and give GWS a headache?

Thanks 1994 keep up the good work. WIsh I could be there (although maybe not given the conditions).

Man it would be nice to have Chris Dawes playing forward for us right now.

Would be even better if we could get the ball forward...

Interesting that Tommy Mac and Viney left the main training to go run light laps on another oval (where Dawes, Sellar and Gillies are)

Probably enough work for them and to keep them fresh for Saturday.

Maybe, but not unusual. I imagine Viney will be eased from a lot of training this year to protect him. And Tommy Mac has had 2 big games since coming back from injury. Chasing Hurley and Darling around in a team getting smashed isn't an easy task.

Would give the team a huge lift, if Dawes and Gawny ran out on sunday.

If sure Gawny will but Missions injury updates are usually correct and he said no Dawes this week and 50/50 next week. Even then I think he'd be best back through Casey considering he played 1 mini preseason game before missing 8+ weeks.

Ok, I've left now, they were wrapping it up.

Final points:

- Jamar left the complex about half an hour early, after getting his back worked on. He may be doubtful.

- Kent looked very good (again). Maxy Gawn looked good too

- Dawesy is a running machine. Powered through plenty of laps. On the other hand Gillies could barely run, so regardless of form I doubt he'll play

- Dunny cut Blease's head open, leading to a lot of crimson being expelled, and of course, jokes about how his face matches his hair colour..

That's about it, they looked solid, but being as wet as it was, hard to get a read on their actual form.

Cheers

Was wondering why Blease had such a heavy bandage

How did Dunn cut Blease's head? We already know that Dunn hit Bail when Bail was wearing a vest telling players to go easy on him. We know Dunn is fond of rabbit punching on field but failing to go when it is his turn. Now Blease is cut?

More detail is required, but I reckon there is enough there is suggest that Dunn could leave now and we'd lose nothing.

Which having Dawes at FF would help us do, due to how his inclusion in the team would affect the position of other players... your point?

Hit him hard in a tackle. Blease stayed down for 5 seconds or so, then Dunny lifted him up by the back of his shirt, slapped him on the back of the head and continued going about training. Blease went off, got taped up, and came back on 15 minutes later or so. Was quite a bit of blood.

Don't think he did it in a menacing way though...was playing hard, which is what we need to do in an actual game! Do it to Scully, then I'll be happy

Watched Dawes when he went across to the other oval and he was put through a quasi fitness test, which he seemed to get through without too many worries.

Would surprise me if he played but he is not very far away.

The other one I watched really closely was Kent, still don't know why he hasn't played, every time I see him he just looks a ready made AFL footballer.

Likes it tough and looks to be hard at the ball with good disposal, just what we are screaming out for, maybe this week.

What a dork - he'd never do that in a game - at least not to anyone other than a kid or someone not looking.

The sooner we get rid of him the better.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    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
