This is only the case for close contacts.

Which longmire and his merry band of assistants are not

From the fox article linked above:

NSW Health has declared that anyone who visited the Azure Cafe during that time frame is a casual contact, meaning they must get tested and self-isolate until receiving a negative result.

I might have missed something but wasn’t it our choice to travel the same day to Tassie or were we forced to do this?

On a slightly related note, did anyone catch Gawn mentioning same day travel on the podcast?

Gawny mentioned how same day travel for early arvo games doesn't work too well for a lot of players like himself. As he mentioned getting up at 3am to travel to the airport must mean a pretty early flight but sounds like it definitely had an impact on the players energy. It was pretty clear in that first quarter. Obviously due to covid it sounds like its necessary but hopefully something that doesn't happen as often in the future. Hate to see games impacted by things like same day/morning travel with players tired from early starts/planes.

Anyway this is a night game so I image less of an impact.

 

Same day travel is ludicrous for a professional sports organisation.  I've travelled alot through my work and nowadays wouldn't even consider travelling on the same day as an important meeting or client engagement. Both the early start and sitting in an aeroplane without fresh air is taxing on the body.

Its disgraceful that the game was played in Tasmania if the teams were forced to travel on the same day as part of the conditions of the game going ahead there.   That stupidity should have been called out and the game moved to Etihad.

Casey v Swans postponed which is not great for our guys pushing for selection. Can't see why Swans 1st. Team have can go ahead but reserves can't

Damn that’s really tough on the likes of Weid who are trying to smash the door down. I’d like to see the club make Sam and emergency in that case to make it clear that he is on the cusp.

You'd have to start doing that from the intersection at Church St onwards...otherwise you wouldn't have a prayer.

That was a play on words Trigon... SWAN St... Sydney....

Yeah, this'll be interesting. You'd imagine this would have to impact the players. Possibly in a good way, but far more likely in a negative way. Limited line coaches.

I wonder how many staff travel interstate. Do medical staff and water people tend to travel or are locals employed?

Domainfax is reporting Longmire usually coaches from the benches with the assistants providing feedback from on high.

Whilst I am happy with any advantage, if we beat them, people are going to say "oh jeez the Dees only won as three of Sydney's assistants weren't there which hamstrung THE LEAD COACH [emphasis mine for sarc]". Then again, as my new favourite book says, "zero fks given".

I doubt the 3 assistants not being at the ground will make much difference. 

They will get all the usual vision and instant stats on whatever digital device they use, as if they were in the box.  They will relay/talk with Longmire, as if they were in the box.  The only difference is personally addressing players and lines at the breaks.  As someone else mentioned addresses in the rooms can be done by zoom.  Not ideal.  Just a hiccup I suggest and they have 3 days to set up whatever is needed.

If we win we win on our merits.

Same! I’ve already packed my lil bag: sangas, hand-warmers, ponchos, a contract to put out on Buddy Franklin’s head. You know, the usual. 
The contract has yet to be signed but I’m sure I’ll have no trouble finding a willing signatory at the ground. (Please form an orderly queue.) 😁

Yeah, I won't care. Richmond had all the luck going their way in 2017 and didn't have an injury until 2018.

I notice all the tipsters on the AFL website, except one, tipped us. So I don't think it will be used as an excuse.

And if we lose the media will bang on about how it's Sydney's best win in their club's history as it was done against such adversity.

Really need to take care of business here.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
