This kid could be really something. Looking at the list and the kids coming on, there is not only going to be competition for spots, there are also going to be some very disappointed footballers. 

I think that's the biggest thing we've got to look forward to next year, the fact that there are very few players we'll be disappointed to see out there. 5-6 years ago I reckon there were 15 blokes on the list who'd frustrate the hell out of you and you'd be annoyed to see them picked on the weekend, now there are barely any. Credit to all involved in the footy department.

Arrived a little early... Rehab group already out on the paddock, with Don Tyson joining the regulars. Tyson, Hibberd, Big Mac and Melksham kicking in pairs on the lead with Crossie overseeing them. Viney on straight sprints, Vanders on fast laps, King mixing it up. The whole group arrived with Watts looking like a former Brisbane Brownlow medalist!

What does a former Brisbane Brownlow medalist look like??

Hold on I just saw it! He reminds me of .....  Not Aker... um...... I got it a younger Warney!!

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

It shouldn't surprise that a guy who's been handling a footy most of his life would be a good kick.

The mystery is when guys get to AFL level and they can't kick with one foot, let alone both feet.

He went and played basketball Ted, hasn't played footy since junior days, I was talking to him about how we could field quite a good hoops team if they could persuade Max or Pencil to play centre, and Goodwin would allow it, not a bad starting five Gawn, Maynard, Petracca, Watts and Frost

So did Jordan Lewis turn up or does he get another week or two off because he played a couple of finals for that shitty club he used to play for?

Will be there Monday, think only Garlett, Garland, Lumumba, Pedersen, Lewis and Trengove have not shown up to now, and Bugg made a couple of guest appearances, asked Macca about this today, whether players had to stay away, said return date was 'official' but they didn't have to stick to it

No it's not just show them the photo of Jack Watts, although personally I liked the look, but that says more about me

More topic, been first two weeks, standouts have been Hogan and Brayshaw, although everybody seems to have returned in top shape, Watts being a prime example, turned up today looking sharp, can see why McKenna was grabbed, Smith looks to have listened and even being a B class rookie doesn't stop you playing in the AFL team, the competition for places is going to be fierce.

Spoke to Dom Tyson, he is looking forward to the challenge of earning your place and keeping it, so are others I have spoken to

They had Max Rooke supervising the tackling drill

... and you don't think Joel Smith is good enough to get into the starting five?

Very apt. Most people you know think that you're crazy!

They just stuff around, or forgot their own, or they are being remade, McKenna was in 44 for a couple of days, now in 40

Oliver was feeling crook, spoke to him, didn't sound the best, there have been a couple of them with a bug

Will put a bit more later today or tomorrow

Watts is determined to keep the hair

Isn't it obvious he is copying Shane Woewodin and trying to win a Brownlow by attracting the attention of the umps.....

Just remembered on a note about Mitch King, knee recovery progressing well, had him doing half a dozen set shots from 40 out on 45 degree angle, all through the goal post high

How do you see him progressing, when compared to Max King after his first year at the club?

Gotta hand it to Wattsy. Changes his hair colour and it ends up as an article in the Hun and Patrick Dangerfield tweeting about it.

The bleach blonde looks seems to be coming back into vogue for some reason. A few of the EPL players are doing it. It looks absurd to me but if he's playing well then he can wear a purple wig with silver highlights for all I care.

These reports on Brayshaw have me excited. His highlights package when we drafted him remains the best I've seen. Talent to burn. Can't wait to see what he can produce next year.

That is a significantly bigger Joel Smith.

 

Wow!!

Thought his Casey Prelim was fantastic. He really showed something. Continued improvement could see him make it. Our next Hunt, though a bit different.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
