Some Coiterie Members have put over 1 mill into developing Casey Fields such as Spa Pools etc, and with the view to build an Admin building close by. There is so much real estate there to turn that into our home base. With more stands around Casey Oval as well will stop the wind swirls too. Id be all for building there than looking at Caulfield which we will be restricted by room.

casey will be a huge component of our strategy going forward

as has been stated before, you need 3-4 full size ovals with four teams (afl, aflw, vfl, vflw) all needing capacity to train etc. during the on- and off-seasons

There is that at Casey Fields.

Caulfield will likely be less restricted for room than Casey, with less parking issues and more room for buildings.

More to the point, the MFC don't want to be based solely at Casey and I suspect the players would agree.

It is great for what it currently is and will be, an adjunct to a permanent, more centrally located home base.

Whilst I agree with you on the basis that we dont want to be based solely at Casey, the actual footprint we have at Casey vs what the prospecus says at Caulfield, its like double.

 

Hopefully something gets sorted sooner rather than later anyway

Yeah it's damm hard to travel there for 4 hours a day 3- 4 days a week when most players are on $300,000 + a year it must be hard on them.

No, not damn hard on them, merely stating what would be their likely preference, given where most of them live.

They are entitled to have a preference on where they would prefer to train, not that it would always be accommodated.

They might also have a preference which club they would like to play with and that also is not always possible.

No it's not. Correct me if I am wrong but at Casey we have use of the Casey ground and Facility, not the whole ground area of the entire sporting fields.

At Caulfield we could have 2-3 ovals with one MCG size and a full training and administrative base, with even a low level grandstand built outside the track, giving us the best facilities in the AFL and in the central part of the Melbourne metro area. Casey will never have that.

I agree with your point the sooner the better though.

Guess you missed the sarcasm and no they don't have a say where they train that is up to the club case in point you live 20 minutes from work and you're work decides to move an hour away do you think they would ask you if that's ok, it's a commercial decision. We will have to to see what the club decides.

I should be going to the meeting today but things have come up and I won't be able to attend. Hopefully the 7 dog walkers show themselves and we can move on.

They might get held up shouting at clouds on their way to the meeting

I'm genuinely fascinated to hear what the gripe will be about.

"They're taking our community green space and replacing it with upgraded community green space"

Am I missing something??

We're monsters.

Makes the blood boil how our club gets treated 

Imagine a Tassie v Gold Coast grand final at Gosch's Paddock. Parking would be bedlam.

The locals not happy

Typical. The Trust meeting not only avoided many, many questions... but also finished the meeting 15 minutes early. That sums it up!

I’ve never stood on the side of injustice.

Ratepayers taken for a ride tonight.

Smells like a done deal by the suits on the big side of town.

The cost were small compared to non survival, which is we were faced with. No point looking a gift horse in the mouth

Well said Some D/Lers have AGAIN ignored the reality of the opportunity around the AIA when we had no cash. Zilch you idio.. Stop  trying to make out an unrealistic opportunity that never existed.

Some comms from the club regarding the feasibility study. embarking on community engagement. I'm sure the feedback will be taken on board and incorporated into final designs. I'm obviously biased in favour of the project but its hard to see how this plan disadvantages the locals (although some will no doubt arc up). 

I'm feeling positive. hopefully any nimbys can be pacified and the project progress to realisation. It's just a few train stops away from me so i'll be a regular visitor if this happens.

    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?

    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
