Maybe he should retire prior to the draft if that is the case! As it is, he is taking the place of either a potential recruit or a loyal servant such as Grimes who we have delisted (but who still played a valuable role at Casey)!

Any reason as to why Grimes can't become a Casey listed played?

How have the lads reacted to Lord Lewis's presence ?

Got along to training today, obviously warm blustery conditions.  As already noted, no Lumumba.  No Garlett either.  Everyone else appeared to be there and were either in the rehab group or the main group (with some rotating between, depending on the nature of their injuries).  Some random observations:

- Petracca already looks leaner, particularly his upper body

- Hogan and Brayshaw continue to impress (as was noted in previous sessions)

- there is a significant focus on non-preferred foot skills

- the ground was segmented into three sections longitudinally with lines running end to end from about a metre either side of each point post.  Not clear what role this played in the drills I observed

- Lewis is already vocal (eg imploring those in a group that ran 4/5 fast laps to stand up at the completion and not hunch over)

- Melksham trained with the main group, Hibberd with the rehab

- other rehab group participants (not exhaustive) were Stretch, VDB, Viney, TMAC, Pedersen, Oliver, JKH, Trengove (running laps), King

- the skill sessions were mixed - a bit difficult to be fair as conditions were atrocious.  Harms and Neal-Bullen (in particular) have some residual challenges around their disposal

Will revert with more if anything else comes to mind.

 

thats what I wanted to see...

cheers

Need to get Leadership group to sit him down and lay the law done....( if able to) this disruption unacceptable.H does not seem to accept club position, trying to take things into his own hands..no wonder Bucks could not or want to hold him at Colliwobbles .

Gee whizz - where on earth did all that come from ? quoting the MFC release ( which i haven't seen) - he has lingering issues from concussion - you have taken the leap to unacceptable disruption and haul before the leadership group and law down law and taking things inot his hands and not accepting the club position ! 

 

( I too am skeptical about H playing another game but until I hear otherwise I will accept the official line that he has ongoing concussion issues)

I'm glad to read that, I've found it astounding the last few seasons seeing young players all over the league kicking a checkside to pass the ball where a left foot kick should have been used.

Cuts down options when a player refuses to use his non preferred - I long for days when we argued about which was Robbie Flowers non preferred foot as you seriously could not tell

Yeah he is the model for that T-shirt on the demonshop website.

Hope he paid for it :pj:

 

To those that were there, it was mentioned that there is non preffered focus, is that to say they are using the non preferred in all drills then switching to preferred or just flat out only non?

In regards to H, I played with a fella who got a couple of successive head knocks, had terrible headaches for over a year, wasn't allowed to drive and was never allowed to play again. I could totally understand if H was still feeling the efdects

Can't tell with Brayshaw either - superb kick with either foot.

You could tell with him from Game One, to where he ran etc, not afraid to go either way to evade and kick.

The nuffies won't listen.

Not sure there are many saying he does not have a problem steve.

This is the AFL world where winning is everything.

If he has a real problem then sadly he should be off the list and looked after as an x player who needs medical help into the future.

Simply leaving him on the list serves no one well.

So does this mean the clubs, or the AFL's concussion testing procedure is still lacking?

If Lumumba is still looking for answers for symptoms he's still experiencing then I'm really surprised by that - the fact they've passed all tests thus far.

Really? 

Josh Mahoney today:

"We have been very diligent with our concussion management and we are supportive of Heritier gathering this information."

...the Demons say a delayed start to training is of no concern.

Sure I'm concerned that H may retire soon or may not play for the club again or that we could possibly fill that spot with a DFA, yadda yadda....

But I'd be more concerned if we played him and and he did even more damage. Both the player and the club must feel satisfied with the medical outcome. The club is supportive, which is the key word IMO.

Thanks to those on the ground for more great training reports. Love the lace out comment by Lewis.

That line reads in normal speak as " we have to say this so we don't get sued for not taking care of him" .

And when was the last time we believed any FD when they are trying to find a way out.

When Clark was going through his process all we heard was he will be back when over his injuries.

Then a pay out is announced.

Am I a cynic?

Yes

He clearly is over AFL football dc.

Work out a deal for him to go now before the trade period.

That is the best option IMO.

He leaves we then have another draft spot, anyone at this point is going to be more useful than I guy who clearly does not want to play.

No, it's not clear at all; it's the opposite. It's more likely he is hanging in there because he wants to play but someone is being responsible.

    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

    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.
