That photo probably overstates Smith's change in body shape. It's noticeable but not crazy. The change in definition is what makes him look so impressive but it's a good change from a basketballer to a footballer's body. Having that background in pro sports and being a bit older probably helps.

I'm excited that they have music. Just one speaker so far but it's something I think they could build on and play crowd noise during goal kicking practise, play some tunes during the warmup and maybe cut it off for the focused training.

I think it's a sign that Goodwin isn't afraid to be innovative and to mix things up. 

So music is a tick from me. 

Toilets must be next.:pj:

Then a sound wall and more trees to stop the toxic diesel fumes at the freeway end please.

By all reports, Joel Smith and McKenna could be real smokies next season.

ANB looks like a man on a mission too.

Havent seen enough of Maynard as yet but competition for spots is going to be fierce.

Maynard doesn't look too bad for a B class rookie, if that makes sense, I expected his kicking to be all over the place but it's quite good, and he is like a sponge asking questions all the time, when he is not in the drill, he watches intently

They are building a block on the corner DS, still means a run there and back though, Jesse used this as a warm up this morning

Sounds like it from a couple of reports but someone mentioned in one of the training day threads there is a push for him to move to small fwd. I know we are well represented at inside mid but not sure that move will pan out.

Just noticed Ollie sitting on the grass watching... I'll keep an eye on him The competive, half ground ball movement continues... several looking a bit worn out now

Love the reports thanks.

Was Ollie maybe looking for a drink?  Or the booze bus on Punt Road?

That's not nice, already reported the poor bugger was crook, can't take a trick, spoke to him, didn't look or sound well, believe there has been a bit of a bug floating around the club

Gee I don't know about that... He looks like he's put on about 5 kegs of lean muscle on his jaw and neck alone

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    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.
