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.

What time is it on? I'm planning on going there.

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.

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

    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.
