Very flat from time on in 3rd quarter.

Swallow was okay. Got hands on it a bit but not much done with it.

Wagner got heaps of ball and was bought down nearly every time. Port are quite quick.

Maynard battled hard.

Jordan. Hardly saw him

Chandler. As above.

Pruess. Good early then fazed into some frosty moments. Umpires did not vote for him today.

Lever. Quiet but can see he reads the play better than most. Was a General down back. I think he played close to 3/4 of game. Would leave him at Casey until after the bye.

I was also at Casey heavily disguised in case Dazzle man noticed me and wanted to "Chew the Fat"

Agree Lever looked rusty but confident on his knee and did a few good things.

He does look fit and wasn't blowing greatly on managed time. I also noticed him in the dugout playing coach and barking some instructions on the side.

Will MFC take the risk and play him next week??

I tend to agree with Dazzle on this one

Other comments

LEFAU NO 79 Gee liked the look of him a New Zealander reminded me of the way Goodes played

Tall good turn of speed, Goal sense, a touch of the unpredictable an example... At one stage in first quarter in traffic gathered the ball baulked , then blind turned and delivered goalward!! Plays tall !

Unless we have someone well and truly in the frame for mid season draft gee this guy has a lot of upside!

Other points

Pruess is far too good at this level and the benefits of playing him with Max then is depending on game it alows Max to fill a hole up back or play tall up forward.

Corey Wagner also did some nice things

Dazzle .. what was your perspective on LEFAU??

Sparrow: Really just didn't stand out for me. Get in and has a crack but has no hurt factor. 

Pruess: he was our best player for the day behind Wagner. Controlled the ruck but our mids didn't make the most of his silver service. Umpires had it in for him all day.

Lever: started like a house on fire when he came on in the first qtr but was quiet for the resy of the game. Coaches would have just been thrilled that he actually got through hos first game. Will get better with more game time next week.

Chandler: Barely noticed him. Kicked a ripping goal though.

Bedford: flashes in and out. Development year for him. Good to see him hit the scoreboard at least. That will get his confidence up and going.

Jordan: like Bedford its a development year for him. Barely noticed him except when he turned it over in the 3rd qtr.

Maynard: Does what he needs to at this level. But he will be delisted at years end. Just doesnt havent enough tricks to take that to AFL level. Good on him though for sticking up for Chandler when he got stomped on! 

Wagner: Liked his game, has a good burst of speed from stoppages and was clean throughout the day. Expect him to play next week if ANB doesn't come up from that concussion.

Casey have some very ordinary VFL players. White, Munro, Dipasqual, Briggs Quigley, Stockdale are just example of the gap between ours and Port Melbournes.

Mitch White as captain is puzzling..  

Lafua is a very interesting prospect though. Love the look of him.

Today was my first look at Casey this year. Our injury list and the clean out at the end of last year made it look like a totally different team. Lever started off well with a strong mark and reading the play, I'd say he will get better week by week. Also well done to the Casey  women's team who looked a lot better than last year.

The stand alone clubs will always have better across the board talent. The AFL aligned clubs make up for it with their AFL listed players but when you have injuries at the MFC level it becomes tough.

Jordan is a baffling draft choice, Maynard should have been let go years ago. Chandler too small. Wagner isn't AFL standard. Gee our lack of depth concerns me. Preuss should be in the AFL team

Jordan is barely 18.  Youngest player drafted.  I have said 2019 is a pure development year at Casey.  His skills by foot are worthy of persistence given he hits targets.

I don't think he's amid 'dazzle'...doesn't find the ball enough but has enough to be tried as a small defender.

Lack of depth!!!???

We had a moral victory against the premiers , over there, despite hostile umpiring, and 8 - 10 of our best 22 unavailable.

I think that suggests our depth is surprisingly good.

Oh, it's too soon to say any of that...  way too soon.

He is just getting used to VFL footy.

Next season will show-out where he needs to be,  and how he will develop...  one thing looks certain, is that he seems to have the presence for AFL.

Need more from Bedford and Chandler.   Yes I know they are first year teenagers, but they both have some real talent that should be showing through at VFL level.

I swear the MFC is a graveyard for small forwards.

Bedford had a good patch in the 2rd qtr where he cracked in and showed some real speed and evasiveness. 

But yes do see where you're coming from. Going to give them the benefit of doubt that when we start to get senior players back into our Casey team from injures, we might start to see a bit more of a rounded performance as they'll know their teammates better then half these VFL guys that are making up majority of our team.

Thats true.   They will find things a lot easier when we get players back.

I know this is the role he has played when in the seniors, but if anb gets up, I'd be looking at garlett out wagner in. While garlett does create opportunities it seems he fluffs most up, also fluffs up the standard stuff now, if it were lockhart or another young kid i would give more time, but he's no kid, and would prefer the standard stuff someone else will provide

The kids are very slight and shouldn’t be expected to be dominating or being relied on 10 games into their 1st season.

A moral Victory is not enough mate, Collingwood made the grand final last year with half the team out. The reality is none of our depth players stand out and all the kids we have drafted in the past 3 years bar hore look like making the cut

    PANTSED BY THE PIES by George on the Outer

    A 41 point loss to Collingwood, combined with yet another meagre output from the Melbourne forwards, saw the Demons pantsed by the Collingwood in the Queens Birthday match. For the nth week in a row, Melbourne failed to produce a score that would trouble most sides - it’s inaccuracy alone was again enough to seal the outcome. If that final score of 7.15 were 15.7, the game would have been very different. That sort of output was exactly a repeat of the previous week against Adelaide, when fo

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    It is truly amazing what a difference eight days can make in the life and times of a football club. It was a little over a week ago that the Casey Demons side were literally crushed into submission by the Werribee Tigers at Avalon Airport Oval. The losing margin in that game was not huge but the way they struggled to produce and cohesion in their play was obvious for all to see.  On Sunday at Casey Fields as part of heritage week, the team wore the Springvale FC jumper and made its own turn

    TEN YEARS AFTER by Whispering Jack

    There are many who would argue that Melbourne’s current woes go back a full decade to their Queens Birthday engagement of 2009 when the Demons selected a young VCE student Jack Watts to make his debut on the MCG in front of what was expected to be the club’s biggest crowd for a game described as the club’s “grand final in June”. That was the way of the world for the Dean Bailey coached Demons. The critics were skeptical of Melbourne’s decision to put a wet behind the ears schoolboy (albeit

    TOP END HEADING SOUTH by George on the Outer

    The Demons headed north for their annual game in Darwin, but the disappointing outcome could only mean they are heading south with the all too familiar failings happening again. A Sam Weideman mark and kick for goal with only 30 seconds remaining in the match could have won it for the Demons, but the kick slid sideways and the team went down by two points.  Sam may have been devastated, but the fact that the team could only kick 1 goal 8 behinds in the final quarter lays the blame at the fe

    MAYDAY by KC from Casey

    There’s not very much that can be said of the lacklustre performance of the Casey Demons at Avalon Airfield Oval against the Werribee Tigers on Saturday other than that it was woeful. There were however, a few small rays of hope for Demon fans, the main one being the display of defender Steven May from injury and to a lesser extent, Kade Kolodjashnij’s return after two months recovering from the effects of concussion. May was in stellar form down back, taking intercept marks, disposing of t

    POINT OF NO RETURN by the Oracle

    Conventional wisdom says that a club reaches the point of no return in the AFL competition if it has won less than four matches at the mid point of the season.  What this means for Melbourne is that in order for it to remain in the race for a top-eight position, it must start winning games now. Moreover, It's not enough to win the next game but it must also start stringing wins together to make up for its deficit in both wins and percentage.  With so much at stake there will be no excu

    A REAL DOWNER by KC from Casey

    When Sam Weideman kicked his third goal at the midpoint of the second quarter of Casey’s game at Downer Oval , Point Gellibrand on Sunday, he put his team 26 points ahead of the goalless Seagulls. Buoyed by the return from injury of Weideman and a number of other AFL-listed Melbourne players including Jordan Lewis, Mitch Hannan, and Jay Kennedy Harris and an impressive start to Jake Lever’s second game on return from his ACL surgery, the Demons were seemingly on top of the world.

    ANOTHER GIANT PROBLEM by George on the Outer

    On top of its injury problems Melbourne ran into an “in-form” GWS Giants at the MCG in a game which, apart from a final quarter junk-time spree served to highlight the club’s current problems. There’s a virtually non-existent forward line; a plethora of VFL standard players, who might be getting plenty of game experience but most will simply not be up to AFL standard; an inability to kick straight and an ability to waste simple opportunities so that they mustered up only one goal in the fir

    GIANT HEADACHE by The Oracle

    It seems so long ago that Melbourne took an unchanged line up into a game on the MCG against the Greater Western Sydney Giants and cleaned them up to the tune of 45 points.  In truth, the event occurred literally half a season ago in the final home and away round of the 2018 season and marked the Demons’ return to the finals with more triumphs to come in the weeks ahead. Of course, back then, it was the Giants who were wracked with injuries as they stumbled into the finals series facing the

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,
