I'm not. I will still always enjoy my beloved Cats. But after watching many Dee's games, and the majority of Casey games this year, I know a lot more about this club and its players than I do of Geelong.
Oh and when your best mate and brother gets drafted to them, it's hard not to change your allegiance ^_^

Just a word of warning, if and when Declan gets a game in the AFL side, I suggest you stay away from the match day thread, unless you are in the condition your name suggests

Noted. Thanks mate. Nice work with the Instagram pics btw, I sent him that solo picture you took of him and he really appreciated it.

Great work Drunkn. 

I hate the scarfs. Haven't bothered to pick one up for three years. Useless. I would much rather a cap. 

I collected scarfs with the idea of sewing them together for a blanket as i saw a scarf blanket at the footy and thought what a brilliant idea. And useful. I even bought a bunch that were in an op shop. Had them in a garbage bag. Which someone threw out. That was the end of my scarf adventure.

IWS we have covered this before, they keep asking the supporters, and those that bother to answer in surveys say scarf, a lot of the femaie support don't want a cap either, they don't wear them.

Here is an interesting exercise for you, stand outside of a membership tent before one of the first home games and watch the reaction if they have underestimated the demand for supporters picking up their scarf

Yep, I have witnessed that in the past.  I have often given up waiting in the queue for a scarf, given the time it takes. My personal preference is anything but a scarf.

I don't have to debate a scarf over a cap this year. The Club sent out an email a week or so ago offering caps to 10 people who signed up on that particular day. I signed up and got a call today saying I've won one of the caps. Yippee!!  The only other thing I've ever won was the ugliest set of candle sticks you've ever seen that I commented on as such before I won them. 

It's an omen. Go Dees!!

Not sure I like your idea of an omen given how rarely you win things. On the other hand, as we like to say when it happens, we don't mind if we win ugly as long as we win.

Ha! Fair point. At least its an improvement on what I won. As for the winning ugly. Didn't realise you knew me that well. Lets just say my avatar is an improvement. At least in the moustache.

Why would you wait in the queue for a scarf if your preference is "anything but a scarf"? Both sexes can wear scarfs, you can wear them anywhere in the "G" including the MCC Members Bar and you can hang them out the car window after we beat Hawthorn!

Umm yes.  The only option with your membership is a scarf.

During the recent down years I developed the end of season tradition of feeding my scarf to my dogs to rip apart, which I found quite cathartic, but now we're on the improve, I'm starting to accumulate and keep them again...

Would it be too big a stretch for the club to offer members a choice?

Probably too much in administrative costs. Club does better if members shop in the Demonshop for the apparel of their choice. Having said that, the designer tartan scarfs offered by rival clubs might be a nice addition to the product range (and other blue and red clothing items) rather than solely sporting clothing apparel.

Am I the only person who hasn't received their membership pack :mellow:

 

 

 
 

No, I haven't received mine either.

Makes it kind of hard to go to the AGM when it requires your membership card.

Another 50 in the last 24 hours or so. I hope the players are as excited as I am about the prospects for 2017. Big crowds, big expectations and big wins!

We're well ahead of past years. Nearly cracked 40 for 2016...might nearly crack 50 for 2017 ;)

Go Dees

I am also bullish about 50,000, especially if we again preform well in the pre-season competition.

Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    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
