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 desperately need Bowman to help out Bradtke. He comes from our area get it done Dees.

Surprised that Tom Freeman didn’t figure in any of the rookie draft discussion. He looks a future prospect to me.

Agreed. He showed real ability. Like to see him get more game time in 2019.  Not sure how given limited spots on vfl lists. Only 12-13 blokes maximum given 45 already on our list.

Casey aiming for 15 in the squad. That makes 60 players all up including MFC list.

James Freeman Tom Freeman Mitch Gent Mitch Lewis Jay Lockhart Corey Machaya James Munro Corey Stockdale Mitch White     

Add returning Luke Tynan. 

Likely another ex AFL player being announced shortly. Plus add 4-5 youngsters.

As others have mentioned in other threads the key forward depth is pretty thin. I'll be interested to see who actually does play forward this year for Casey and also what the drafting and trading strategy will be in the coming seasons.

Agreed. Casey is full of mid sized utility types. Rawlings will need to push to get a quality ruck into his squad.  

Dees also need some more depth in key forward position and work with Casey to see if any could be developed for future drafting. Maybe youngsters like Haydn McLean, Josh Smith, Riley Bowman or Hudson Garoni will be looked at by Casey.

As far as depth goes. I think we are not covered so well if Jetta gets injured.  I think he is key for our setup.  Allowing others some freedom.

Interesting to see which young Dandenong Stingrays or Gippsland Power under 18s turn up at Casey Demons. Plenty seems to be headed elsewhere including Geelong, Box Hill, Essendon, Bulldogs, Werribee & Frankston.

If Jetta were injured I'd like to see Nathan Jones given a chance back there. I think he could last a bit longer at the club in that role.

Be really great for us to focus and develop over time the young Bradtke into a specialist full forward and scare machine with mongrel.

Actually, might be worth a try NC...  if that were to happen to Nev.

I think Nev is our hardest to replace.

I think Bradtke has to ruck to learn his craft quickly and rest forward accept when Preuss plays at casey.

I think Preuss will play at least 50% in the AFL.  But not every match, as i reckon we will drop Gawn down on games per season. and on %time on the ball.

I think we will manage Gawnus, trying to lengthen his career, whilst managing his loads.

 

If either got injured... max or preussy, then we will be needing dee-bradt to learn early season... as much as he can, to cover this scenario.

I would fast track Bradtke for the first 2 months of the VFL season then ease him off playing more time up forward after that.

Let him run on the ball early... which is a closer thing to basketball, than being stuck leading from the goal square with some one punching him in the back of head all the time.

Certainly add to the rebound and clearance ability of the backline with a swinger to the HBF, such as OMac as KK looks better at this point as an outside Mid.

For those who were not around when the great Norm Smith was coach he believed the best small defenders were midfielders who had run their course in midfield. When MFC recruited Stuart Spencer as a back pocket player he stated to Stuart he was too young to play there and he made him a rover who became on of the AFL's great rovers.

Bradtke is only 17 and just finished school. Did not play TAC Cup or national championship.  He will have to carefully managed in 2019 and not have to be the no.1 ruck at Casey.  I see him playing more forward.

Not sure which youngsters are training at Casey. Hope to see Mitch Riordan name being mentioned. 

Dandy Stingrays and Haileybury College boy who has the Luke Parker type style. Plays to win and he does. Strong and skilled mid. Would have definitely been drafted but injuries killed his year.

If he wants to play football, he'd better go to Casey more regularly. I see him being more use to the MFC as a FD coach.

Interesting to know where Tom Freeman plays in 2019.  I was impressed with him in the 4-5 games late in the season. 

Also Casey could not attract any ex Afl listed players. Thought our Casey alignment showed a pathway back like Corey Wagner showed.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    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

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    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
