You are a valuable resource for this site. Thanks for your work mate.

 

Might be a struggle for the Dee 2's next season after so many regulars got the axe. Would be wonderful for our growth in the area if we could bring home a flag for the Cranbourne area.

Best of luck to the new boy. Go hard Tom.

Thanks again KC.

Hope the Casey have a squad that can go beyond the performance of last years.

No disrespect to last years squad which set a pretty high benchmark but improvement is demanded and needed. 

Your own contribution has always been fantastic and much appreciated

Let’s hope Casey can name a captain with a bit of leadership. Not sure if Hutchins was injured but he was [censored] hopeless come finals.

I've said this before, but the role of a Captain is not just about what happens on the field. I have no idea whether Hutchins is a good captain or not, but making a judgment as to the suitability of being a captain on the basis of what happened on the field, particularly in one game, is a fraught exercise.

Happened all finals series. He was pathetic.

All well and good to be a voice on field,  but at least back it up with actions. As a teammate i would find it very hard to listen to a bloke next year who struggled to get a single kick during the clubs most important period ( finals )

He wont be captain and based on his finals performance, hes not best 22 either.

His final series was pathetic. The worst I have ever seen by a Captain over a full finals series, where he struggled to get a single possession in any game.

Realistically Hutchins should retire he can only play full back and we have plenty of full backs. Vince would be the perfect captain for Casey.

Don’t know, but he didn’t touch the ball or impose his presence on the contest at all. Same for each finals game. Don’t know the reason.

Trengove would also have been a good captain if we had delisted him from our AFL list and moved him to the Casey list rather than jettisoning Casey’s B&F to the Power! Do you think he’d come back? Love him to play a part in a Casey Demons Premiership!

Enjoy a day at the VFL immensely but it is such a compromised competition on so many levels.

Personally I think it is in its death throes as we know it except that no one can come up with a better idea.

It might seem strange but I don't think the clubs want to encourage greater attendances as that would require facility  upgrades at many stadia that the providers cannot afford.

Enjoy it while we may is my suggestion especially the Burra Burgers, the Coburg craft beer and of course the Casey egg and bacon roll.

FWIW my favourite grounds are Coburg, Frankston and Williamstown with a special mention for Port.

It is most likely he did not want to stay just to play with Casey and Bernie probably won't want to do it either. There is no chance in hell that Trengove would even think about coming back.

Trengove wasn't jettisoned to Port, why on earth would he want to stay at Casey when he had a chance to be on AFL list at Port.

According to Paul Amy, former Casey Scorpion Luke Tynan (brother of Josh who played two games for Melbourne in 2012) has left Port Melbourne and might find his way back to Casey.

Paul Amy has reported that Angus Scott is off the WAFL Club East Perth. 

I think retention of James Munro (should be skipper), Mitch White, Corey Machaya, Mitch Lewis, Jay Lockhart, Corey Stockdale, Goy Lok and James and Tom Freeman. 

Guys like Gent and Hutchins likely to head to suburban footy again. 

Add Tynan and 4-5 youngsters (including a young ruckman) and have a quality 13-14 in the squad.

I wish Bernie Vince was able to play for, and skipper Casey this year.

We need a ruckman so Bradtke can play predominately forward, I don't know who to drop for him probably Tynan or Munro.

White will be skipper he was skipper when Hutchins was injured.

We missed our entire centre line in Stretch, Maynard and Baker this year.

I think we are as good a chance as any to take it out, just need that consistent ruckman to get us over the line. It cost us the flag this year.

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.

    CASEY VS THE AUSSIES by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons played an exhibition match against an Australian Under 19 team at the MCG on Easter Saturday but the game was played with more than half an eye on the fact that whilst their senior counterpart was taking part in their AFL Round 5 game against St Kilda later that afternoon, they also had an assignment just four days later against Richmond.  The team, with 10 AFL Demons, opened strongly and dominated the first half to lead by four goals at the main break before taking most of

    EASTER BUNNIES by George on the Outer

    Easter is supposed to be an occasion of hope, revival and ultimately celebration.  But for the Demon supporters it was none of these as yet again their team was made Easter Bunnies by the Saints. With the exception of Christian Salem, there was not a single winner on the ground.  The danger for the Demons was giving the Saints their own hope and enthusiasm by conceding early goals.  That is exactly what happened in the first quarter, although with some ridiculous frees from the umpires clos

    MARCHING IN by The Oracle

    The most embarrassing loss of the 2018 season (perhaps aside from the Preliminary Final) for Melbourne was the one it suffered in Round 15 against lowly St Kilda. The Demons came into the game as a red hot favourite but were embarrassed by the Saints' speed and willingness to take the contest right up to them for virtually the full four quarters. It was a defeat that they were to bemoan for the remainder of the season. Their arrogance in going into the game and taking an opponent lightly was a c

    RELENTLESS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons returned to the winning list with an emphatic 54 point victory over a limp North Melbourne VFL combination at Casey Fields on Saturday. Smarting from last week’s thrashing at Box Hill, the Demons came out of the blocks intent on redeeming themselves for their embarrassing start to the 2019 campaign.  After a brief early bout of inaccuracy, the goals flowed as a result of relentless pressure applied to the visitors who were constantly forced into error.

    TO A “T” by George on the Outer

    Thursday night football - not something Melbourne FC are accustomed to doing, especially after barely garnering a Friday night game for years. Yet with this opportunity, the Demons soundly beat the Swans at the SCG and put their season back on Track. This was not only a game of mental toughness, since the Demons had so far failed to win a game in 2019 and faced possibly a season ending prospect of 0-4, should they have failed in Sydney.  History was against them, and Buddy Frankli

    SWANSONG by Whispering Jack

    They said that in 2019, the Melbourne Football Club was going to take its game to another level but we were never prepared for the level the club is reaching as it approaches the fourth round of the season holding up the entire AFL ladder in a match that could be its swansong for the year.    We were meant to be premiership contenders, not playing off for a wooden spoon which is what will be the case unless there is a sudden and dramatic turn around in our fortunes!    And whilst there

    A DAY TO FORGET by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons started the 2019 in unimpressive fashion with a 62 point loss to the  Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. It was a total contrast to their 2018 opening when they monstered the Coburg Lions but the circumstances were entirely different. Twelve months ago, the Demons were able to go into the match with a large contingent of AFL listed players while yesterday, they went into the game with 12 Melbourne players, mostly inexperienced.  They were also hampered by the AFL sc

    2019 IS NOT 2018 by George on the Outer

    Seems like an obvious statement doesn’t it?   Yet the MFC coaching staff/team seem to have forgotten to change their calendars on January 1st. A 3 goal loss against the equal bottom side in the competition and now with a 0-3 record for the current season, it should be obvious that things have changed from 2018.  Not so on the field, as Melbourne continue to play the style which got them to a Preliminary final.   Once again the Demons saw 20 goals scored against them for the game.

    THE NIGHT OF THE TORTOISES by The Oracle

    Friday night sees two clubs of which a great deal was expected in 2019, facing off in the battle of the slow starting tortoises. Both have had calamitous starts to the season and are sitting at 0-2. One of them will, by the end of the evening, be seeing their season slipping away from their grasp.   Both clubs are playing without confidence and without purpose. The Demons, who had the best-performed attack of all clubs last year, managed to convert 73 entries inside their forward 50 metre a

    THE CAT RUN by George on the Outer

    It truly became a “Cat Run” with an 80 point win to the home side, an outcome that had us wondering what happened to the Demons of 2018 when they got to a Preliminary final on the basis of their “brand” of contested football?   Well that part hasn’t changed any, since the likes of Clayton Oliver can win the ball 44 times in a game including 15 clearances, Angus Brayshaw racks up 33 touches with Jack Viney chipping in for 27 of this own.  In the ruck Max Gawn had 53 hitouts on the night, and

    REDEMPTION? by the Oracle

    How much should we be making out of Melbourne’s opening round loss on its home ground against an unfancied team from interstate in Port Adelaide?  The game was barely over before the excuses were coming out that about the lack of preparation of the team, the fact that some players were playing injured or unfit and unable to handle the humidity and the heat, the team’s lack of run and spread, the lack of experience and having too many key players injured or (in the case of Steven May) suspen
