CASEY DEMONS: Rd 01 vs Box Hill Hawks

I see the VFL season kicks off next week with Casey's first game scheduled from Sunday at 12:05pm away at Box Hill.

I am from the other side of town, so was hoping for some advice from those out East about whether they think it is logistically possible to watch the Casey game and then catch the train into the G in time for Dees at 3:20pm.

2:37 train from Laburnum gets you to Richmond at 3:03.

In theory you could catch the 2:47 to 3:13 and sprint to the G if you've got seats closer to Richmond and just catch the bounce.

Same question about whether you can sprint from the South East corner of Box Hill if that gate is open across Whitehorse road to Laburnum to cut that time down too!

Overall I think the likely answer is if the quarters drag on over 30 minutes and the game takes 2 hours and 40 minutes you might have to either skip the last 10 minutes or be slightly late for the bounce at the G.

Cheers, this matches up with my research.

I reckon to get to the G before the bounce going to have to be leaving the Casey game early in the last quarter.

Casey will be well in front by 3 quarter time so plenty of time to leave early into the last quarter.

  • Whispering_Jack changed the title to Box Hill Hawks vs Casey Demons - VFL Round 1

Thinking of heading with my chair along so any details would be welcome.

I assume MFC membership gets me free admission as in earlier years.

If KC can give us the player numbers and possibly the team when available that would be great.

Box Hill was the site of the Weid's big VFL breakout game so let's hope he can repeat it.

An interesting conundrum. Pakhenam line trains this weeekend will be running buses from westall to clayton so I usually go to belgrave to get the train when this stuff happens.  Would have to leave at 3/4 time probably to get the first bounce at the G and make my way up to level which will take 20 mins. Might consider it though.

If I go to watch the game at Box Hill, this is what I'll be doing.

The VFL game is also live on 7, so I guess could try watching last quarter via 7+ app whilst on my way to the G

Thanks for doing the research work guys.  I'm walking distance from Box Hill oval and have a ticket to the game at the G.  Stoked to know about the Casey game because it comes around here only once/year and usually it clashes with a game at the G or some other commitment.

As I recall, it used to be a $10 entrance fee, regardless of Dees m'ship.  I think that our free entry only applies at Casey.

I'll be with the horde heading to Laburnum to get to the G on time.  I'm due up high in Ponsford and my sprinting days are behind me, so 3/4 time leaving VFL seems a good option.

And for those who remember the great egg and bacon rolls sagas, I can also tell you that the food at Box Hill, while really quite good, is nothing on the egg and bacon rolls at Casey.

There is a bar inside the stand on the wing for purchase of liquid refreshment.  If I piffed the tinnies far enough, I could almost hit my own recycling bin.  But they'd have to be full tinnies to get the distance, so that'll never happen.

Good to see it will be live so I can settle in to watch it while the youngest naps, then I can head over to a hawks mates house and smash his Holgate Brewery beers for the big game.

Ripper news, this double telecast! We are going to see, in succession, Casey and then the AFL game against the Hawks. Demon supporters have much to glean from both sides - particularly at this point of the season. Recoveries from injuries, depth of form, present and future challenges and potentials, mongrel pride and its contagion across 'our' two teams, all including an opportunity to expand out insights into the team we love - the Mighty Demons! 

Big weekend, good opposition, both a great chance for sewing the ragged hem of a footy season ahead.

Interesting that the VFL fixture has been based on the AFL aligned teams playing on the same day as the AFL team play.

Assume it was requested by the clubs to provide synch between the levels but given they play at different venues it is another knock on the VFL comp crowdwise.

I'd love to see the return of the 'Reserves' teams playing before the 'Firsts' team at the same ground, same day. The atmospheric build-up to the main game was always a super part of a day '...at the footy...'

Lucky bugger. I am stuck in Adelaide for the w/end ... telecast is on for both games, I think... but a very poor second best. Would love to watch and travel between the two venues, can of beer in hand ....

Worth going to see Brown, Weed, Bowey, Laurie, Rosman, VDB, Bedford, Daw, Lockhart, Chandler, Smith

should be a strong team

Heaven help Box Hill, I'd reckon. Hope we can generate and sustain some real mongrel.

About time the players got a real hit out in a competitive match. 

So its Casey playing at noon and the Dee-Hawks at 3 20.   Perfect Sunday afternoon of footy.

It already sounds like a pilgrims' trek between two games; such are our loyalties. 'Carna Red'nBlues!

This doube-header, as an act of some programmer's generosity, is a gift too valuable to actually believe. Particularly for Demon supporters.

Bottle of Scotch about to be opened and lotsa ice. My Clan scotch - Talisker - (Isle of Skye) , just perfect. Donald where's your troosers?

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
