Casey Demons vs Williamstown



Recommended Posts

The Casey Demons’ final pre season practice match is scheduled against Williamstown on Saturday, April 10, 2021 ahead of the season opener against the Box Hill Hawks on the following Saturday. 

With Melbourne doing well in the AFL and players returning from injury, we can expect some big names taking part in the Casey team this week.

So was watching the Knicks play the Grizzlies this morning on the NBA app and were getting soundly beaten so I took to Demonland and saw that today's match was on. So at half time in the NBA, I turned

Arriving at 11.05 in pouring rain at Casey Fields is never a great start but that is exactly what Casey got off to in the first quarter.  The rain stopped a few minutes before the game started and it

Ventured down to Casey along with a few others on here to observe a few players. Weather was pretty rainy when I got there for 1st quarter. Not too many spectators, I estimate around 400 max

That would be a huge boost. Maybe they could each play a half at full forward.  I think we’d have to get them through two games before senior selection.  I thought tom McDonald did ok in round 1 but he’s not the answer across CHF/FF. Need Weid and Ben Brown in the MFC line up.

I wonder whether they'd look to bring one in for the Anzac eve match

On the Williamstown website it has the start time at 11.15am but that info was put up a few weeks ago. I'll wait for something more concrete.

I read in an article on the MFC app, that both the Weed and Brown played in an intraclub game last weekend. Does anyone have any info as to how they went?

I’d like to think that it’s not a contest between them, but rather an opportunity for them to practice operating together in the same f50.  Imagine Brown leading up and Weidemann sitting back splitting the defenders and offering some juicy 1:1s for the Hf line to kick to.  Frittata leading to the pocket as third option, and Kosi buzzing around ready to pounce.....

Fritta needs to stop leading into the pockets Very rarely leads within the 45 deg arc and should concentrate on that.

Having said that his 2 set shots on Sunday  were Spot on. Really knows how to set the ball.

Kinda exciting to think about and consider, at this point of their eventual return to the team, just how opposition sides are going to counter a forward set-up such as the one that is going to be in place in the very near future for the Dees. Unless there are executive decisions to mess up the functionality of the array - including its potential, multiple and layered strategies for a avalanche of goals - the near future is looking particularly bright across the whole field of play. 

There are others in the team other than the mentioned key players, bubbling along, who will provide considerable support and further options for aggressive scoring options and pathways. 

I sense that both Yze and Chocko will contribute significantly to this new deck of cards winning many tricks onfield and before goal.

'Carna Dees!

Possible Casey forward line this week

 

HF   Chandler     Weideman    Melksham

F     M Brown     B Brown       Bedford

 

Rosman and Laurie buzzing around.   Couldn't even fit big Majak in  (could swap him with Mitch though).

Pretty handy.

What a debacle

the VFL still doing pre-season pratice matches when we are up to round 4.

Amateur hour

 

What's the issue?  We still get a game which is all we really want.  That it doesn't count for VFL points doesn't really matter does it?

it was always round 3 but this is effectively round 6.

Unfortunately it is a reflection on how the senior coaches regard the VFL. I suspect they would be happy to keep it as practice matches.

The issue is game time for those that aren't in the seniors. How does a Melksham for example get match fit....?

With less rotations, the possibility of player fatigue is high and the ability of clubs to manage the fitness of their player rosters is compromised.

    MOGGIES MASTERED by George on the Outer

    They say that herding cats is an impossible task but not for the Melbourne Demons who through relentless pressure, scored a commanding 25 point victory in Round 4 over Geelong at the MCG. The team that missed the AFL finals only once in the past dozen years were shown up by the new Demons of 2021 who have recorded their first 4-0 opening to the season in 21 years! Melbourne knew what was coming, and it was Geelong who were shown up for their inability to adapt to the 2021 style of foot

    UNDER MY SKIN by The Oracle

    The story goes that there’s a certain player from Geelong who has been seen in Moorabool Street crooning the old Sinatra classic, “I’ve got you under my skin.” His name is O’Connor and he’s been tasked to achieve one thing on Sunday by his coach, Chris Scott: to get under the skin of a Demon midfielder on Sunday and thereby tag him out of the big contest at the G. The idea behind the tactic is to not only blunt one of the team’s most destructive weapons but to distract them all from producing th

    MAX IN SPACE

    Demon skipper Max Gawn is one big unit at 208cm and lately he’s been standing even taller. We already know that he’s unstoppable in the air when going for a mark but with three consecutive victories to open the season, you might say that he has his head in the clouds.  And that is literally true thanks to a fan at Demonland.com who recently arranged for our big ruckman to go even further than the clouds but way beyond to the edge of space and into the stratosphere.

    CAPITAL PUNISHMENT by George on the Outer

    A 34-point win in the nation’s capital has seen the Demons kill the Giants hopes early in the 2021 season. It wasn’t only the scoreboard, but a succession of injuries to major players for GWS that has put paid to their aspirations. The winning result wasn’t just due to the opposition losing players, but also to the relentless pressure from this 2021 Melbourne side that put them in the winners circle. In past years, a 16 point deficit at the first change combined with a rampant Toby Greene w

    POWER AND THE PASSION by Whispering Jack

    The Demons ran out for their Qualifying Final match against the Fremantle Dockers at Casey Fields as the sounds of Midnight Oils’ “Power and the Passion cascaded over the mainly friendly pro-Melbourne crowd. It was a far cry from the season opener at Carrara in late January where few of their fans were in attendance in high 20’s heat and humidity and silence greeted every score from the slow-starting Demons. They ran away from the lowly Suns, won comfortably in the end and followed that with ano

    BREAK OUT by Whispering Jack

    Despite the chaotic events occurring in Canberra over the past few weeks, one thing is for certain. This weekend’s game at Manuka Oval in the nation’s capital between the GWS Giants and Melbourne will decide which of Scott Morrison or Leon Cameron is the most under the pump at this point in time.  This time twelve months ago, the Giants were coming off a season in which they had played off in a grand final. They opened up their 2020 campaign with a resounding 32-point victory in round 1 aga

    MARVELOUS PRESSURE by George on the Outer

    Is this a new form of Melbourne which has suddenly emerged in 2021?  In the past, whenever the pressure was applied, the team would falter early and as a consequence, it would more often than not, be forced to confront its own self-inflicted failure. But perhaps not so this year. The match at Marvel Stadium against the Saints provided an insight into how creating pressure, actually relieves it on the club, players and coach. Right from the start, Melbourne was there to make a stat

    STUCK IN THE MIDDLE by The Oracle

    Throughout the off season, St Kilda was touted as an improver and a possible challenger for a top four position mainly off the back of another good trade and draft period at the end of last year. Then in Round 1, the undermanned Saints made a shaky start and almost succumbed to the Giants but they managed to come home from a wet and woolly Sydney with the four points intact. For Round 2, they have a couple of handy players returning so they come into the the game at Marvel Stadium choc

    A SCRAPPY, SLOPPY SUCCESS by George on the Outer

    After what seemed like an eternity without Footy in Melbourne, the Demons and their fans produced a scrappy, sloppy yet successful return to the MCG. Yet is was against an interstate team from the furthest reaches of the country, but the 21K fans who made it through the gates, was way below expectations for numbers.  Sure it can’t have helped with all the difficulty that Ticketek imposed just to get a ticket, and since you just couldn’t walk up, perhaps the number wasn’t that surprising.

    UNFINISHED BUSINESS by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has unfinished business with Fremantle after that unexpected loss in their previous clash at Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns cost it a place in last year’s finals campaign.   Back then, the tired Demons spluttered listlessly through the humid conditions in tropical far North Queensland playing in and losing two games in the space of four days and against two lowly clubs. The end result was much more than an embarrassment for the club given what was at stake at th

    PRACTICE PUMMELLING by George on the Outer

    Was this a practice for what lay ahead for the Demons in 2021 or was it an outcome to expect because it was used as a true practice game? Those of us on the outside will never know, but a 39 point loss to the Western Bulldogs was a pummelling in anyone’s language. We can draw some consolation from the players that Melbourne put on the field, with Toby Bedford, Jake Bowey, Kade Chandler, James Jordon and Tom Sparrow each getting a guernsey whereas they probably would not normally be in the f

    A WALK IN THE PAST by Whispering Jack

    On Monday night, the Melbourne Football Club handed out four life memberships. Two of those awards went to men who are long gone. Charles ‘Chubby’ Forrester and James ‘Jas’ Byrne played for the club in the 1870s, even before the Victorian Football Association was formed. The other two are current skipper Max Gawn and swingman Tom McDonald, who almost left the club at the end of the pandemic-affected 2020 season. Some fans might have raised their eyebrows and wondered whether the emphasis on hist
