Recommended Posts

This week the Casey Demons take on Richmond on Saturday afternoon at the Swinburne Centre (Punt Road Oval) so it’s a nice stroll from one venue to the next for anyone wanting to make a day of it.

Any telecast?

No, don't know if it's an AFL mandate for FOX to televise different teams each week but the Saturday arvo game is Port Melb vs Zebras. I would think from a commercial point of view the Tiges vs  Casey game would have many, many, more viewers,

For me, there was nothing better than being able to watch the ressies at Punt Road (or the G) and then the seniors.  Used to love going to the huddle at the breaks and vividly remember a reserves game end of one season when they were behid at 3/4 time and Chris Fagan singled out two players that needed to lift in the last quarter (Craig Nettelbeck and Mark Winterton).   They combined to kick five goals betwen them to win the game.  Winterton in my opinion was one of the better listed players to never get a game for the club.  Incidentally that day was the day the Dees tried out two champion country midfielders Guy Rigoni and Fraser Stevenson, who both dominated.  The club was keeping Rigoni's identity as quiet as possible.  I asked who he was and the club said he was the fictitious Rodney Saddington - Jason Saddington, Mark Bolton, Paul Chapman and Jess Sinclair among others were top up players that year.

2:00pm, as per the fixture, which is annoying and nonsensical and I would imagine inconvenient for most wanting to double up.

Have been to Punt Road in 2018 for a VFL game. We lost but it was a very nice winters day.

Other than the stand which seats maybe 1000 there's not much room and certainly very little additional seatng. They have also made it difficult to get to the Punt road side of the ground where there is maybe 15 feet between the ground and the wire fence. The admin/ gymn centre almost touches the ground.

5000 would pack it out.

Overall not one of my favourite VFL grounds.

To get in you buy a ticket at the gate for $10 or $5 for away club members.  Usual scan in required. Have not seen any mechanism for pre-purchase.

The food was a take away truck with nothing spectacular as I recall it. Hangin out for my next Burra burger !!

Hope this helps.

PS at the Box Hill game last weekend you were allowed onto the oval at the quarter breaks which was a pleasnt surprise.

I had written the time in my original post, but along with re-wording most of what I said, and adding a picture, the time was removed. Not sure why.

No way would 5000 be able to attend this venue.

The AFLW was allowed 1,200 approx and I would say 2,000 would be maximum.

A one off Game and lucky if you get in I would say.

Anyone know where to find this week’s selected side? 

I don’t think it’s announced until 6:30pm... check on the AFL website is probably more reliable than MFC website.

No problems viewing next week’s Casey Demons game if you have Foxtel - it’s on live Thursday night.

Will probably be on kayo freebies too in R3.  Kayo is only doing 3 VFL matches each round  (which may explain the sudden disappearance of the Casey-Box hill match from their listings last week).

One of Petty, Weid, Chandler and Sparrow won't play for Casey.

Pretty sure it won't be Sparrow, who was sub last week and Petty seems unlikely with May back, so its Weid or Chandler.

More likely to be Chandler as sub than Weid.

I thought Weid would be playing, but maybe the weather played a part.

Tigers happy to play two tall specialist key forwards, while we have gone for a young forward ruck and a mid sized forward in Fritta, while Tom Mac seems to play more up the ground than key forward.

Mitch.Brown not named must be injured and not omitted like it's been said.

There's a QR code in the ticket. I'd just assumed that could be scanned on entry like we do at the G? 

Might go to library on way and print it out just in case. Who owns a printer these days!

was thinking of going but the stand being closed and no other seats plus the credit card booking makes it unattractive.

Will dip in and out of the TV on the Geelong game instead.

Looking forward to getting back to Coburg or even Windy Hill

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc
