Great photos. Observations ,

Daw is one hell of a unit.

Good to see Gus & Jack training with I assume the main group and not rehab.

Smith with no knee bandage

They're still in small group training surely, divided up in to groups of 10.

In which case the royal blues does seem to have a bit of rehab about them. Viney, Smith, Gus all have niggles and possibly Clarry on a lighter week.

Limited to 10 at a time they'll all be on a lighter week really.

Whatever your thoughts about Majak Daw's invitation to join the Dees training as a trial for a SSP spot on our list as a KP forward  or back Or ruck trial there is no doubt That any one's heart would be gladdened to see that huge smile On his face on the attached photos of training today.

That was  the Best part of Harley's tryout in 2020 with us showing that in AFL humanity and team culture is still the greatest gift in a Club..
 

To see Majak out in the track just enjoying life and being considered good enough and appreciated will have given him a great boost.

None of us really know the Full facts about the lows he has been through himself and with his marriage and fatherhood but we may just be able to without too much pressure contribute to his development and growth and enjoyment also adding to some  games of footy which he obviously loves playing.

Lets support him all the way as we did with Harley and make  this ride a Win for all of us especially Majak.

Great to see Harry Petty also but with all of them together it might still be only the rehab group albeit without bandages!

Including  Majak as well.

Daw is peak physical specimen. Still looks in ripping shape and has serious muscle. Shame he’s going to be played more forward as he really excelled down back IMO.

Good to see Brayshaw and Viney up and about too. Both need a good run with injury and will play an important part of our midfield mix.

Thanks for the photos!

He is 1/3 Uncle Bitter, 1/3 your good self Dazzle and 1/3 my good self when fit about a zillion years ago!!!???

Agree, he is  a specimen and a half and could become the new "Cult" hero!! among the Demon faithful.

For people who understand these things, is the muscle definition that Daw shows in any way linked to aerobic fitness? In other words, should his physical appearance give us confidence that he's aerobically fit? 

You don't run with your arms.

LT I don't think he is going to be barred from defence if a vacancy occurs There also or his form demands a spot in the 22.

Not necessarily, Aerobic fitness refers to Cardiovascular fitness. For example, Ed Langdon has it in spades, runs all day!  Muscular definition is just that Muscular definition. Majak definitely has that but as to his Aerobic capacity?? Depends how fit he is!

Viney and Gus on the training track great news at least they are hopefully preparing to play come round 1 of the season proper.

Daw is looking in good shape and might be ready to show case his skills in the preseason games. 

Great photos and good to see  the boys up and about.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
