How’s the Bear’s side looking? Full strength or close to? 

*Haven’t been across this game as we’ve been moving house this week. Foxtel got installed yesterday thank god. Last time we moved there were massive issues and didn’t have Fox footy for first 5 rounds. Out of desperation I drew a dodgy picture of stick figures playing footy and stuck it on the TV.

No injuries, in both the Casey and Melbourne games, is all I'm after today. Result is irrelevant, although it's always nicer to win. 

Interested to see how the back line functions with the players we have coming back into the side. Lions will have a red hot crack so should be a good game to watch.

Not only does Cranbourne East sound like a truly horrible place, but I had no idea it was so far from Melbourne, you know, the name on our can. It's basically an away game.

Someone needs to take the blame for this travesty - and I doubt it's Jack Watts' fault, as there doesn't seem to be much in the way of top-shelf swimming and [censored] opportunities in the near vicinity.

Reality-check - we're now only missing Viney, Lever and Milkshake from our confirmed 2019 core crew. Anything less than a ten-goal win is unacceptable in my opinion. Remember that time Hawthorm pummeled us by 90-something points in the pre-season - I want that. In reverse, obviously. And IDGAF about injuries TBH - we'll cop them at some stage - let's go hard from the outset, come what may.

Brisbane are missing just Zorko and Adams (defender they got from Dogs)

A win is critical today in order to keep our flickering top 4 JLT hopes alive.

Hoping for a more consistent and even effort today after last week’s poor performance.

You’d like to think we won’t be conceding another 16 goals with the inclusion of 3 premium players in May, Jetta and Hibberd to the back 6.

At the end of the day you would like to think we will put up a more consistent effort than last week, but I don't see a win or loss as that important. Being cherry ripe to blow Port off the MCG in Round 1 is what we are after.

The road to Cranbourne is open in the summer months. Take plenty of water, and provisions for three days, and extra fuel. Notify police before you go, including your car rego and expected date of arrival. There is no mobile phone coverage, so two-way radios will be useful, as will flares and matches, whistles and mirrors in case of emergency.

Once you safely arrive in Cranbourne, you will be able to re-provision for the second leg to Cranbourne East, where the same precautions will be necessary.

Good luck, and may God watch over those poor brave souls.

(And, GO DEMONS!)

Hope Goody told the boys to aim the tackles on Mathieson at his ankles. End result should be a legitimate tackle around the waist area.

Have been to Casey fields a few times now.

It's not too bad save that it lacks atmosphere and public transport.

Brings back memories of trekking to Waverley in the 80's. Then we thought Waverley was in the middle of nowhere.Now it's almost an inner suburb still without atmosphere and public transport.

I have christened the goals ... the bayside end and the Culloden end ( after nearby Berwick of course).... perhaps we could arrange for a piper or two.

Go ye bonny lads !!

I live about 25 mins away in Seaford so it’s actually the closest ground for me to get to, don’t mind it out there at all. Main advice is bring a jumper because even if it hits 27 today but halftime when that wind rips through the ground it gets darn cold

Cranbourne and environs moving towards the beach backroads used to be a great weekend trek in the EH wagon, filled with beer and good blokes, and there were some good little spots to put up the marquis, light a campfire and toss around a few director's chairs for some serious refreshments and malted nutrition. Sunday night return via the pubs along the Nepean Hwy for good tucker, and for dessert, some nice eye-candy. The Dees were starting to go downhill, after the '65 Grand Final back then ... but fond memories of that environment are hard to cast off.

Viney looks like a bull at the gates out there. One bit of play he tackled a bloke, pried the footy from his grasp & bollocked his way through 3 guys before he got the clearance. Can’t wait to see him unleashed in round 1. ?

    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
