Footscray v Casey Scorpions (Jesse Hogan returns)


KC from Casey

Recommended Posts

Those expecting Hogan to debut next week, can forget it. He is clearly rusty, not match fit and has had 4 possies at the 17 min of the last quarter. According to the Casey radio guy, he has been soundly beaten by his opponent, Fletcher Roberts, whoever he is.

Better for a run though. Knows where he is now and can get to work.

Not true at all. Match fitness would be a worry but the rest of that statement is rubbish. Casey radio bloke has no idea

Well what is the true position then? Has he played well according to you? Do you expect him to play next week for the Dees, on the back of today?

I am interested to hear what you saw today.

Would be very very surprised if he played senior footy this year, match fitness is the only reason for that though. Delivery was horrible today. Kicked over his head with the wind a few times, was double teamed in a few contests and went third man up for the spoil on 3 occasions. Had about 4 good one on ones and won 3 of those so to say his opponent had the better of him is incorrect. Wouldn't have played half the game I'd say and half of that was when we had the wind against us so the ball didn't enter our forward half.

Thanks. Well at least he didn't get injured and got a bit of match practice.

Pretty much how I saw it too. Had a run, and no injuries. He's very vocal on and off the ground which is a good quality and hates losing contests. Had a ball kicked over his head and his opponent marked it, he swore very loudly but turned straight away and smothered the ball to our advantage which was good to see

Sorry Biff, but I couldn't find him, there were dozens of people, men and women, looking like that.

Just back from the game. An interesting experience. Went to see Hogan of course but the doggies kicked with the wind so Hoges only caught a chill in the first quarter. In fact as well as a wind advantage you also got the slope advantage - the ground falls as much as Lords Cricket Ground it seems. At times, every player was inside the fifty at that end.

Hogan showed his skills in the second quarter. He took a contested mark, led and marked and used his strength to win a contested ball. He kicked a goal and was generally in the play.In the third quarter he spent about 12 minutes on the bench but might as well of stayed on it as Casey only had one inside 50.

He was a bit frustrated in the final quarter as the ball was bombed to him and gave him little chance under those conditions. The second quarter showed his class but he is still short of being AFL ready IMO. In any event I could see no purpose in taking a risk this season.

Pedo played a bloody top game. Battled against big Cordy and busted his gut around the ground. Jordie McKenzie snapped a magnificent goal (believe it or not). Blease took the field on a couple of times and though he got caught Casey missed his pace when he stayed off after half time. JKH did a bit and Toump popped up a couple times but they were not stand outs.

We were generally outclassed and deja vu there were some shocking turnovers.

Pies were good but as I took the Merc, I kept off the grog. Will remedy that now, while watching the dees.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
