Casey Demons v Coburg


KC from Casey

Recommended Posts

With Hogan out Weids could be a big chance next week. Great effort from him. 

As an MFC fan Casey winning this weekend is so important given that pathetic loss we suffered yesterday. While I'd caution swinging the axe big time, this puts players on notice. 

Good win Casey.

Looking forward to Plapp's report.  Weeds and Maynard in particular.  I could see the Weids this week for Hogan, and Maynard in for a home game debut the week after?

Angus pressing ?????

Would love it if he was! I suppose I had drawn a bit of a line through him for this year, but if he kicks the door down and is ready to go, he would certainly fit back in.  I also look forward to what Plapp has to say on him, then, too!

I hope that KC or Plapp can give an answer - is Gus genuinely pressing for senior selection and if so how soon? Next week particularly given yesterday's poor game

Love the look of that. Maynard must be a massive chance to debut in the next week or two.   Brayshaw might return too.

Keilty in the bests for the second game in a row, good for him.

A few thoughts on the game, and take this with a grain of salt because I am biased and have had a few.

As for the overall game, Casy weren't bad, Coburgs game style and pressure just destroyed them for the first 3 quarters, but the extra fitness and hardness that AFL listed players bring allowed them to dominate the last quarter

As for individual players:

Weideman- kicked 3 goals 3, shoulda kicked 6 straight. Missed 3 relatively easy goals but did some amazing work in the aireal contest, and I mean took some unbelievably marks today, did some amazing running around the ground and I would not be surprised if he comes in to replace Hogan

Maynard- He's form has been amazing, was easily best on ground and I'd expect him to get a senior debut this year. He is clean around the contest, hits it hard and has great speed. A great pickup from the MFC

Brayshaw- wasn't as prolific as last week but is showing good signs he is coming back into his best, did make a few errors today but his gut running was outstanding 

Pederson- took some good marks and had a few great tackles but he butchered the ball a lot and if I were Melbourne selectors I'd choose Weideman over Pedo going off today's game 

Spencer- was great in the ruck today against a decent opponent, took some good marks and was good at ground level, fumbled a bit but might be an option if they want to tryout the Gawn/Spencer combo 

Keilty- continues to develope and build on his game, took 3 or 4 crucial contested grabs and attacked the ball at ground level well but also made a few mistakes under pressure, give Dec another pre season and he might just become a great key position player

Other good players- Strech seemed to be big around the ball today and Wagner got onto a lot of loose balls and had a big impact. Dion Johnstone also had a huge second half, had a few great moments up forward and laid some big hits and tackles . Mitch King probably played the best game of his year, dominated the ruck and took some impressive marks

The not so good- Good to see Hulett back in the VFL but was pretty quiet, I doubt he'll go on much further. Kennedy was also pretty disappointing today 

If I've missed anyone let me know and I'll try to answer your questions

For the VFL listed players, Fristch was again outstanding today, missed a few easy goals but his hands for a shorter player are insane and do not be surprised to see him on an AFL list next year. Jack Hutchins was great as the general in defence today also, Ferreira had some  nice moments

Thays just my 2 cents

Drunkn, do you think Maynard has the game now to be able to step into AFL level and contribute?

I have no doubt that his age and size will help a great deal but wondering about how his 'game' will hold up in the ones.

Cheers

It's hard to say, I don't confess to have any idea about what actually goes on inside an AFL club and I laugh at the fact that so many supporters think they know what is best, but from what I've seen and from other players who go in between the VFL/AFL system, he has an insane natural sporting ability, as shown by his time playing basketball in the United States, and I think he could absolute hold his own against the best

Great stuff mate, cheers for that. Question re the Weid - did he/has he been doing any ruckwork in the VFL, or just playing as a key forward? And as a forward, is he more stay at home, or roaming up the ground a bit?

Did a little ruck work early in the season but none since King/Spencer has been back, always got killed.

Depends on the team they play, but he does a bit of both staying at home and roaming up the ground, hard to pick between the two

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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
