Which new kid would you have sacrificed? You realise when you have 5 of your best 10 out and 5 next best second tier players injured (J Smith, Brayshaw, T Smith, Garland, VDB) and another 4 good VFL performers in the sin bin, whoever comes in would find the going very tough against a side like the Swans. Probably do more harm than good to a young player's confidence.

Back onto the game itself.

It was probably the most disappointing game for Casey all year, fumbling, a lack of intensity and totally out worked by Port Melbourne.   Casey were outnumbered in the forward line sometimes by 6 to 3 and then had players free out the back when Casey pressed forward, tell tale sign you are being completely outworked.  Port Melbourne pressure was good the inability of Casey to get into any sort of rhythm was very disappointing.  There were times that Casey broke through the press and they seemed that but they had no targets or idea of what to do with the ball, this caused panic with the ball carrier which led to some awful turnovers.  

All the Casey players were down as well and just lacked any winners on they day, Fritsch and Hutchins were the best of the Casey players.

Joel Smith - Looked good on return and was one of Casey's best, lacked a bit of touch but this wasn't helped by teammates.  He is probably 1 -2 weeks away from consideration but at the rate we are losing players might be chance.

JKH - The best of the Dees from what I saw, was terrible in the first half but responded and looked lively in the second half trying to get the team back into it.  Disappointingly though he lacked impact in the midfield as Casey was smashed by Port in close, probably the most likely to come in from the game.

Ben Ken -  Got the ball and effort was there in tight but an inability to have an impact with disposal is keeping him from the AFL, also doesn't spread well enough for someone with is pace.     

King - Liked his game, has limited minutes but his tap work is good and is a whisker away each week from taking a few contested marks.  He just needs to build some strength but he looks likely.

Trengrove - Has his step and agility back which is great, one of his poorer games though in terms of disposal.  He displayed very good hands but tried to generate some ball movement with riskier kicks which didn't come off.  Also struggled to put defensive pressure on which was disappointing.

Spencer - The most disappointing on the day, looked a mile off it and Casey were beaten in the stoppages.  Hasn't regained the same form yet from last year after his injury.

Weiderman - Looked OK but not a great day for the forwards, he was outnumbered all day and wasn't able to impact the game.  The only real criticism was that he got sucked up the ground to much leading to some of the issues going forward, gave the team a spark when he went into the Ruck.

Maynard - Got a lot of ball in tight but wasn't able to generate any impact from his disposals, wasn't able to get much of the ball in transition which limited his impact.

Kielty - Competed well in the air but not much influence with the ball.

Johnstone - Was ok but didn't have much impact on the game, there was almost no forward pressure on the day so from that point of view was disappointing but DJ spend some time on the wing as well.

Kent - Played on a wing and had a crack, needs to improve his kicking and work rate but if Garlett misses he is a chance.   He doesn't use his pace as much as he should and his kicking can sometimes be way off especially in the midfield.

Interesting to see that 4 of our reserve players were prevented from being promoted to the senior due to drinking according to the M.F.C website. Was that the reason why Casey performed badly?Or did they not understand the club rules or was the club at fault for not given clear instructions?

Excellent summary, Melon, based on the half that I saw.

I'll have a go.

Thought JKH probably at front of queue in terms of form/match fitness, but Joel Smith with the most upside - in horse racing parlance he should take a lot of improvement out of a run that showed a lot anyway; the question with him is whether he needs another hit out for match fitness and sharpness. Joel looks set to pick up where he left off at around the 15 minute mark of round 1, which is exciting.

Kent probably next, then Maynard, then BenKen. It's tricky to predict how Maynard will go at the next step at this stage, but has been strong at VFL level.

Sums it all up. I would add that Weideman suffered from bad delivery which made it very hard for him, as opposed to the previous week where the delivery was good.  Joel smith got better as the game went on, tried to generate some run from half back but was out of position when a turnover ultimately meant the ball went back over his head (he wasn't necessarily the cause of the turnover, it was a bad day skill wise for Casey). He did show good signs. 

We are down on players so I would say any ins would come from the usual..JKH, Smith, Kent and Weidemann, depending on what the footy dept see is required. Maybe time for Trengove as well, from a leadership point of view.

Goodwin, Mathews, Mahoney and Jackson were all at Port for the game.

VAN GOGH MOMENT by KC from Casey

There is not much that can be said about the capitulation of the Casey Demons against Port Melbourne at North Port Oval. The Borough lost to the Demons six weeks ago by 43 points in a game that saw Casey begin the five-match winning streak that catapulted the team into premiership  contention and a top eight position. 

This week's turnaround was emphatic as Port Melbourne made the visitors look embarrassingly weak with its foot on their throats from the word go as it booted the first four goals of the match against the wind to secure a handy quarter time lead. Then, from the mid point of the second quarter and we into the third, they produced an onslaught of nine unanswered goals and ran away to win by 65 points. The turnaround was an outstanding 108 points from their Round 6 encounter. 

The lack of any pressure acts, the drop in enthusiasm and endeavour and the falling away in skills was dramatic . The Demons had 11 AFL listed players on the ground (Liam Hulett was selected for the game but was a last minute inclusion in the Development League team) and given the injuries and a lilkely suspension from the previous night's AFL clash one would have expected a lot more.

Instead, the Casey fans who had witnesses their recent dominant performances were puzzled and searching for answers to explain the sudden form slump. It looked as if the entire side was undergoing a Van Gogh moment - a complete meltdown complete with self-mutilation. Yes, it was that bad.

It was only later that it emerged that four members of the team has played up and broken team rules and gone drinking after the Box Hill game (ironical because that part of town was once known as an alcohol free zone). 

Three of the players in question had all been on the cusp of selection for Melbourne - a very important consideration in view of the need for freshness after three six day breaks. However, the players, Jay Kennedy-Harris, Ben Kennedy, Dean Kent and Jake Spencer were all told they would not be picked on Friday's starry night against the Swans. However, they did play in the VFL game leaving one to wonder what impact the whole sad and sorry saga had on both their Demons' AFL and VFL teammates. There is no excuse for the conduct and the losses but it couldn't have come at a worse time for Melbourne and Casey. In the event, the three K's played well enough, while Spencer was subdued and beaten by a rookie ruckman. 

Two former basketballers and Category B rookies were Casey's best. Corey Maynard continues to impress in the Demon midfield and Joel Smith was strong after a long lay off with injury.

Interesting that after having such a great season last year and then being rookied by Melbourne, I don't think I have seen Keilty figure in the best at Casey all season. 

Is  anyone who gets to see Casey live able to shed some light on his form and prospects?

No mention of Hulett's performance in the Development league. Did he play? Into his second year on the list to be dropped to the DL has a bit of the Max King feel about it.

Bit surprised Nahas didn't make Ports list of best players. Played a Garlett like role really well.

Hard to judge players at VFL level. You are looking for them to play well in their role. Performance may or may not be enhanced by the players around them so you need to look beyond team performance and drill down on individual play.

In the case of Weideman that is perhaps easier than others. While he didn't get amongst it that much on Saturday he played much better than he did at Coburg a few weeks back. The forward delivery was atrocious but on tow occasions where he was sought out he took strong marks. Perhaps he got lead up the ground too easily and needs to learn the running patterns.

Others such as JKH its harder. he got a lot of ball but you need to look at the tape carefully to see if it was his handpass or the recipient that caused the ball to go nowhere (which it continually did on Saturday.)

I would hate to have to put together a VFL list with all the competing priorities. In a way it is easier for the stand alones  but of course they don't get the benefit of the AFL talent. In an ideal world you would have a team of say 12 very solid VFL players, four -eight players on the list vying for AFL selection and then your AFL project players. Sounds easy but I suspect it is an almost impossible job.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
