Casey redevelopment



Recommended Posts

Wonder if this helps or hinders our chances of getting State Gov help with the MFC home base project?

"The project is jointly funded by the State Government through Sport and Recreation Victoria ($5 million), the City of Casey ($2.5 million) and the AFL ($500,000), with production set to commence in September."

Sorry to say it will be the centre of a Type of civilisation within 20 years  Kilometre after kilometre of boring little boxes with no backyards  Built in what was once our most fertile farm

Looks great. Now they just need to jack it all up and move it 50km closer to civilisation. 

Who goes to the city anymore? Tourists?

Is this the project the president was smirking about the other day when a poster speculated an announcement was imminent regarding our facilities?.

When we fold in 2 years we will be able to go to Casey to watch what is left of this club play. Yey. We are cooked. There are increasing rumblings about board disharmony, we are set to post a huge loss this year, we are still homeless and we essentially sit bottom of the ladder. Call me a wrist slasher, but when we are bottom 4 by rd 6 next year, the club will be on its knees. Absolute mess.

You're more than a wrist slasher, you're battle weary from MFCSS.

Look North the 18 team comp is here to stay, we are safe it's been a kick in the proverbial this year but sometimes a good kick and reality check is needed. Nothing comes without continous evolution and moving with the times.

I'm not saying we're top 4 bound in 2020 but we're a far cry from where we were under Schwab/Neeld.

Is the building completely new, or was it a renovation? Looks not too shabby. Clearly the facilities not the "best in the comp" but good to get an upgrade. Tom Sparrow mentions there's new equipment so that can only be a good thing

Completely new

Given that it appears we’ll be spending more time there due to COVID precautions it’s good that the boys have access to a new facility with good equipment. Compared to all other clubs it’s probably at the bottom but better than before.

Well your a bright little button looking like eighth full glass empty!

Don't go outside Till 2022 as with your luck you are sure to catch Covid and give it to half our team!

Ridiculous rumour based comment and opinions that surely Don't even rate a mention.

Take  a chill pill and Lie down for a month or two!

Hope you're ok L36.

Looks like your prophesy was right up to round 6 last year but we turned the corner and are in good shape going into 2021. The list is Top 4 imo, we have Yze back on board, BB to slot the goals, the finances are stable and hopefully plans for our new base will be announced soon. A lot to look forward to i reckon.

I don’t know what "AFL standard" is in terms of facilities but as one who has seen the inside of a few gyms you just need to make sure the basics are covered, the rest is just for show. The basics of strength and conditioning hasn’t changed all that much since Arnie was winning Mr Universe comps.

As long as you have the kit to perform deadies, squats, benching, rows, presses you’re covered. Hopefully the roof doesn’t leak, the plumbing works and they’re hasn’t been any shoddy workmanship such that a shelf or a weight falls on a player. From the brief clip the gym seemed fully kitted out and there’s ample room. (Maybe a sky-light to illuminate the space a bit. Seems quite dark).

Ive seen some of your comments before L and usually find you quite rational and with good insight so I am really hoping you are wrong with this.

Again you are right about our current ladder and we will be on our knees if still bottom four by round 6 so I hope that any mess can be better handled than our past has shown.

Board disharmony is not necessarily a bad thing if it comprises healthy debate and full and open discussion of a range of alternatives . It is important to then agree on direction and unite so hopefully that can be achieved. I think all clubs, will post losses this year but again it is coming out of this that is important and their is plenty of govt support now being distributed. That is where I feel Port Melbourne options have great potential for govt support. The area has been identified by both parties and private sector as ready for development, with all the advantages that greenfield sites offer.However Casey obviously has existing population and community value so cannot be ignored.

I think that with our current list and their obvious potential we must have a good season and then our supporter base will grow and the economic stimulus become more manageable. There is no doubt we need sustained success to really grow our club and become the power that Melbourne Football Club should be.

The coach must get this right and get this group up and running and they can then win the next 4 flags

Does diminish my comments on the credibility but don't step back from other comments. Still relevant I think.

You are correct a gym is a gym as long as you have the space and equipment.  The big advantage is the recovery and planning facilities.  The players are at training bases now for basically 6-8 hours a day.  A lot of that is recovery and planning add in rest times.  It has gone past a ice bath and lap pool plus a couple of rooms for social space and computer/planning work.  Clubs have bed rooms for players to rest in between session, varying different areas to keep the players entertained whilst at the club.

You will find it isn't a big item that we are missing just little things that will add up

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist

    SOUNDS OF SILENCE by Whispering Jack

    This was my first game for points involving the Demons in more than a year and a half and the long march to Carrara turned out to be worthwhile. The game was won in a single withering quarter that was dominated by Melbourne on the back of an outstanding display from Karen Paxman. The four-time All Australian picked up 13 touches for the stanza to set up a five goal to nothing second term after a lacklustre start in which the cleaner, sharper Gold Coast notched up the first two goals of the game

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 1920 when it finally petered out in April of

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h
