No he didn’t 

He didn't play a horrible game or make multiple errors and I don't think his opponent was BOG but just didn't seem to get involved.

He may be one of those players that lifts for the real thing to and gets absolutely motivated.

Reckon  he will lift for a much  more Public game and show his class as usual.  Maybe give him Wallis to mind as he almost beat us Solo in the forward  line in 2020.

I'm a Rivers fan, but thought he was pretty horrible actually defending on Friday. He seemed to be on Aarts, who got away on a number of occasions and ended up being the Tige's highest goal-scorer (3).

Fair enough Bing forgot about Aarts Yes he played well but Riv just seemed out of sorts most unlike him.

I like him and reckon he will come back vs Doggies on Monday. 
I also reckon that that's why we should have a small back pocket style player to go with smaller faster opponents. I have been championing Locky but now have a feeling Bowey is the one after Friday's B game. Players like Daniels Tippy etc cause us trouble because of our bad match ups. Jets is no longer fast enough  fir these pact players 

I really don't know heather Riv is fast enough and agile for them either.
Goody and Coaches have to look at This option for our defence I feel for every base to be covered.

Thanks for your post Bing I am sure Riv  will be fine he is a star.

Thanks PF excellent reporting again.

Please don't take this the wrong way but for a while I had you on ignore due to your negativity around the team. So I have this question in my mind about you attending training sessions out at Casey vs how often you got to see the boys train at Goschs.

As I said; don't get me wrong, I'm trying to understand the new positiveness and I'm looking for some perspective between what you're seeing at training now as opposed to anything you might have seen on game day in the past. I don't remember you doing many training reports in the past.

Thanks for this and your other reports. Us o/s supporters need all the info we can get. 

I have  now forgotten about Lyon and won't mention him again.

Cheers and keep up your excellent work.

Do you believe in Footy "Miracles"??

I don't, but I do believe that hard work, a good game plan, personnel, that can carry out the plan and a smidgeon of luck can quickly turn into something potentially satisfying lets say.....

Success at MFC!!

Welcome to training today from the magnificently manicured CASEY FIELDS. Although the obligatory 6 seasons in one day reminded me of Science Fiction type inbalances between an EL NINO event and a LA NINA Cross, training today was very very good!

NO SHOWS  Didn't see Rosman, Kysiah still interstate I would imagine and Obviously Aaron Nietschke with his latest tragic ACL, Sam Weiderman also no show

ON MODIFIED TRAINING  BEN BROWN ( More on him later) Jake Melksham ( Jack Viney almost normal training along with Hibbo)

DRILLS , SKILLS AND MANEUVERS   After obligatory warm ups I saw 4 drills being executed today. ALL drills had the essential elements of the following game type events

A Choosing correct options to create overlap and positive disposal accuracy

B Being able to execute skills under pressure

C Creating space from turnovers thus turning defence into attack and break line running

DRILL A KAMIKAZE TARGET SELECTION ( BY HAND OR FOOT)

This consisted of players in 6 groups  zig zagging fashion giving handballs or kicks to best option standing in criss cross formations firstly from 15-20 m away increasing to 25-30 m away. This was a very good drill which showcased positive decision making and pretty good skills by hand and or foot to best options

DRILL B HUDDLE BREAK OUT PINBALL WIZARD

This consisted of what to me was a very intricate set play where player would get the ball have options to pass but was placed under enormous pressure by players with those battering foam mats who acted as harrasers trying to stop the player and or smother the ball in transit. This meant that players needed to not only pick correct option but also execute with precission and value. The pinball element presented as the flippers of a pin ball machine similiar to the foam battering mats used by the players. Players would huddle and then give of corect option quickly.

DRILL C OVERLAP AND LINE BREAK DRILL

Consisted of players in precision timing a run and creating a target getting the ball giving of calling for it back if in correct position and feeding it of to presenting player. Player then had a shot for goal or gave of to another option in rotational work similar to creating options of the back line

DRILL D GOAL KICKING DRILL

Simply throwing ball in air turn pivot and kick either for goal or to target depending on judgments

POSITIVES 

BEN BROWN  On modified program but worked with physio on exercises , strengthening and being able I would guess to go through movement range pain free. Looked unhampered

MAJAK DAW  WOW On what I saw today there is not a shred of doubt he will be on the list. His agility was exceptional for a big man he moved well, hit targets and looks to be not that far of fitness for AFL. Looks like he belongs and plenty of hand taps between players for him

JACK VINEY Was impressive on todays performance looks fit and was not hampered in any way that I could see with his foot. Did some modified training at end but looks on track for round 1

HIBBO  DITTO JV report as above

VANDERS  I worry that he seems to get injured at the wrong times and then has to refind form and fitness. Today he looked good and completed all drills

OF INTEREST   Someone was in rehab with Jake Melksham wearing Kossie Pickets no 36 I have no idea who he was!??

Just to reiterate as above header suggests;

Do you believe in Footy "Miracles"??

I don't, but I do believe that hard work, a good game plan, personnel, that can carry out the plan and a smidgeon of luck can quickly turn into something potentially satisfying lets say.....

Success at MFC!!

Have to say all players were interested, involved , you could sense the Camaraderie and purpose skills and pace at execution were good today and so who knows, with a largely injury free list continued hard work, let the year unfold.The blend of mature, maturing and young players just seems to be gelling very nicely!

PS In one of the Drills Max gathered the footty and on the run from outside 50 ROOOSTED a GOAL. AND DIDN'T HE LET EVERYONE KNOW ABOUT IT GREAT STUFF

Cheers  PF 

Thanks for making the trek again Pickett it’s appreciated but no offence you’ve been too WAY OVER THE TOP BEFORE for me to take you on your merit.

BBB is doing rehab... yay

Majak moves well for his size, he’s not proven he can play the game at a consistent average level let alone high standard. 
 

Vanders ain’t a modern day footy player.

This relates to my previous post, it's not like Pickett to be effusive in a positive way. Any over the top posts in previous years have tended to be negative biased. It's why I've taken more notice.

As I've said, I can't remember PF doing many training reports in previous seasons. Perhaps you could get along to a few sessions and confirm or deny the observations directly.

    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

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    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
