Is '58er' really 'Sat'???

No way, Saty is feisty, belligerent and coherent. 58er (a bad year) may be Donald Trump for all the sense he makes.

Is it correct that all clubs are training in "lock out"?

If so, is that a State Government requirement or the AFL?

I for one am missing not going to training but I might make the effort on Monday.

Thanks for making the effort PF and D, great commitment.

 NC Yes communication is vital BUT D/L are not the only forum (as POITA thinks).

The Club would have about 10/15 groups coteries etc to update information that is mostly placed by our very vigilant D/L hierarchy on this site.

Why  my approach is IMO the logical and best one is that the Club is not posting any training info ( schedules etc) because of the Covid rules of isolation etc.
 

So if we want any insider info we NEED to be the one to Promote and discuss and negotiate with the Club and appropriate section or Official.

I love the reports and are extremely grateful to our D/L track watchers ad I live interstate and on at least 2 occasions have ventured in the past out to Casy to watch training and travelled approx 40 km from the SE suburbs to that ground.
 

BUT no way would I be setting off now without a call to Membership ( they always are helpful) the day before to clarify the details of training the next day.

I am pointing out that it's up to US to make The MFC aware of our situation and seek some assistance to help the track watchers.

Last week I singled out a possible Inside   way  to contact the club Through our No 1 track reporter ( Saty) who has contacts.

He seems  to have gone to ground forvwhatever reasons but it's a possibility to consider also.

Its not just Not Solvable  by a post in this forum Bleating about Club communication in 2021. With Covid etc we need to be more creative but also more proactive and Logical.

And  I also see far too many D/L posts just blaming the Club one ATM is the practice match vs Tigers !!!

Go Dees 
 

 

 

 

 

 

LOL

Mate he never had contacts through the club. Unfortunately he just sucked you in to believing that he did.

This is actually rot.  I know you don't like Saty Dazzle but he does have contacts inside the club.  He volunteers on membership drives, he mans the tents outside the ground handing out scarfs he used to attend the majority of training sessions and talk to all manner of staff, he know some of the players and he knows Neville Jetta very well.  I've been at a Casey game where Neville sort him out and happily chatted to him for the last half of the game.

You need to put your dislike for him aside and stop saying stupid things.  This, and comment like it being a disgrace Brad Green should be a candidate for the Board just make you look silly (btw Dazzle, you never did respond to my query asking you to substantiate what was a very offensive comment) .  Your footy views are good, stick to what you know best.

He's been called out many of times on here when questioned on certain topics in a reasonable manner regarding club issues. Anyone can volunteer at a club and speak to staff, not hard ( wish I could too if I didn't leave 3 half hours away). He would snap at anyone if they dared to disagree around all issues Melbourne big or small. He's openly confessed that he comes on here to bait people deliberately. So he gives as good as he gets. 

Around the Brad Green matter? I've either missed the replied response or haven't recieved  a notification.  Bit like the Kobe Farmer one? Didn't get a response back from you either, or the the other thread around potential draftees I would have rather invited instead of Farmer.

I still stand by that I don't believe he should be on our board. But when you have someone like Glen Bartlett running the joint I'm not one bit surprised. I currently have 0 confident in current administration moving forward. 

P.s I know you like to follow me around like a cat lately and nitpick any negative response i may write. So not sure what your problem is .

This is the bit that I didn't/don't like...unlike you 'Daz' I quite enjoyed his training reports, but I digress.

We went through a period where the board and CEO were sending the club backwards at a rate of knots and questions needed to be asked. 'Sat' would defend them when anyone dared to raise an issue but not just defend them he would get stuck into who ever dared question the club. I guess this maybe part of his military training not to question authority but it needed to be done.

...and despite his assertions that if people had a problem they should raise it at the AGM or with the person concerned, in the end it was people (member) power that tipped them out.

We are in a strange place at the moment and I'm not sure we have the right people in place to take us further forward. I'm really concerned that the current board are not being straight up with us and we could be heading down a similar path to before and the many befores before that...if that makes sense.

We all have blind spots and this was his...he is/was company man.

On other non football matters...and there are some on other forums on this site I found him willing to take in other points of view if you had a good enough argument. It made for some interesting discussion.

In fairness rjay I actually didn't mind his training reports as well. In fact, if anything I felt it got better over the last few years. When he started out around the Neeld Roos era it was all fluff. Everyone trained extreme well and no one missed a kick or handball on the day. Other track watchers would have the opposite opinion and that would rile him up as well. I remember 2013 summer I honestly felt like we were destined for top 4 the way his training reports were written.

I started to note a shift in his training reports in the last couple of years when he actually became more honest and didn't sugar coat things like he use too. That's all we asked for. When he was honest I actually quite enjoyed reading his reports and found his summaries were far more in depth then previous years.

I'm very appreciative of @picket fence and @Deespicable taking the time out to trek out to Casey these days and giving us interstate fans something to read. I hope today's events hasn't turned them of going next week.

The website and media stuff has never been the same since Burgo left. He is the only one that really knew what people wanted to see. Pics and interviews with the new draftees, details on when the intraclub would be, photos galore. A shame it's fallen apart since he left.

All Clubs are restricted by training and access due to Covid regs.etc.

You are waiting for news that is not there .Picture Galleries have been on The website From the Club and there is no point in taking any from the track  watchers on D/L as they are looking through the wire fence.
 

Both Neitschke and Chandler were featured this week and others have been interviewed at training.

Actually Ben Gibson does  an amazing job forconly the only full timer with dsine help from Caitlyn.

There have  been Intra Club matches on some training days and featured in the training reports. 
 

The AFL practice matches are on next week end but no times vs Tigers fir the match announced as yet.

Burgo was good but times are different due to Covid and Casey training and  we need  to understand this.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster.
