Yes, I think this is right.

C/Wood would be on track to having the worst training facilities in the AFL if they don't make moves soon

No

Tigers are

Punt Road is limited in so many ways. Take a trip down there and you'll understand

Collingwood will move to Fairfield within ten years

Don't the tiges already have another facility?

...but both have been caught napping.

Having a facility close to the MCG is yesterdays story.

I'm happy we have finally moved on...

Took us way too long.

Thanks everyone for all the respectful conversation here.  It's great to see so many passionate supporters and for us to be able to engage like this.  I've really enjoyed it.  Great thread too.  Go Dees.

Afl announce a 70mill train base for the TAS team! 
 

Makes the blood boil how our club gets treated 

 

Gives us additional incentive to win the flag again in 24, 25 and 26.

4 hours ago, whatwhat say what said:

still only one oval to accommodate four playing squads

do they have another training campus?

 

Three squads - Richmond doesn't field a VFLW team anymore but instead sends their players to Port Melbourne through an alignment.

I know about this but the fact remains that the land for any development is limited by Punt Rd on one side and Yarra Park on all others.

It's a glorified postage stamp by comparison to the other new training facilities

Trouble is they got $12M nearly 20 years ago to redevelop and now another $30M for further development.  We have got nothing because we have been sitting on our hands, or coming up with ludicrous options like Yarra Park.... wasting time.

I wonder what it costs us while we were locked into trying to achieve the impossible?

We can only imagine, as John Lennon said.

Hmmm yes, but Lennon also said that the north side of his town faced east and the east was facing south. Also that he was born in a crossfire hurricane. Also that Mrs Brown has got a lovely daughter. Not the most reliable witness!

Well actually he said none of those things.

Roger Daltrey who got his directions mixed up, Mick Jagger who spoke about the hurricane and Peter Noone who liked Mrs. Brown’s daughter, all are in favour of the Dees new base at Caulfield Racecourse.

They used to have one at Craigieburn, but ran out of money/interest long ago and so they left.

I believe they do, or have done pre season training somewhere near Beaconsfield as well.

They definitely need a second oval. Gosch's Paddock could be a possibility if the Dees migrate to Caulfield.

Exactly. Tigers will pounce on Goshes once we go to Caulfield (fingers crossed)

$2.5m resizing Goshes to MCG measurements was never going to be temporary lipstick

Win, win

They've already been lobbying to have facilities built into the southern stand upgrade incorporating an upgrade of the section between southern stand and their training centre covering over Richmond station.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    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

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    PREGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    The Demons have a 10 day break before they head on the road to Perth to take on the West Coast Eagles at Optus Stadium on Sunday. Who comes in and who goes out?
