Majak and M.Brown superb putting pressure on the senior players.

I would have Mitch Brown in the team instead of Melksham any day of the week! In fact Weeds would want to fire as well! I think Mitch Brown is a very clever and underated player!. Could have had 6 or 7 by the sound of it!

What a pleasant surprise it was to rock up to the ground and flash my membership card and walk in for nothing. None of that tickitek nonsense. Onto the game, it was very messy football. Tackling was good on both sides . Of the demon players I thaught Sparrow and Brown were the best, Daw took some incredible marks in the forward line and it was a more intelligent game by him that I have seen in a while. Jetta did a lot of good things with the ball although he did not get a lot of it. Lockhart was okay as was rosman. In the end it was Brown that carried us over the line but that was only in the second half. Like the senior side they seem to have a knowledge of how to win.

If you wouldn't mind investing in some of these from Chemist Warehouse before Casey's next game HB, that'd be great. ?

We’ve got forwards by the bucketload at the moment: M Brown is capable of doing a job at AFL level if required 

Amazing isn’t it.  Last year it felt like we had no key forwards at all who could impact the game, now it seems we have 5 or 6 who are in ripping form

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 appeared to be a serious ankle injury. Bowey appeared later in a moonboot and with crutches.

The Demons were wasteful early with the breeze behind their backs with Mitch Lewis’ goal at the 21 minute mark, their only major score in the first half. The Cats took control in a second term in which the defences held sway and scoring was difficult. Geelong’s half time lead of ten points was pushed up to a game high 15 when Darcy Fort put one between the big sticks five minutes into the second half. 

Enter the Demons’ almost forgotten key forward Mitch Brown who hadn’t been since since he played in the AFL team’s win over Hawthorn a few weeks back. In the space of a few minutes he booted two goals two behinds, almost single-handedly wiping off the deficit although he left it to fellow tall, Majak Daw, to score the goal to put the team back in the lead. The Cats fought back with the next two goals before Toby Bedford responded to level the scores. At the final break, it was the Cats by a point. 

In an exciting final term, Casey again showed their mettle with Brown proving to be the match winner. With both teams struggling to find the goals the Demons were doing most of the scoring but, against the run of play, the Cats scored the first major of the final term. Two strong marks and two more goals to Brown provided the ray of hope needed for the team to nudge ahead by eight points well into time on but the game wasn’t over yet. A couple of bad errors resulted in two technical free kicks for crowding at defensive throw ins and Rhys Stanley managed to goal with the second. The Demons were forced to endure a tense minute or so before the final siren ended a close and exciting game. They remain undefeated and on top of the 22-team ladder. 

Apart from Brown, Daw was also a dominant player whether on the ball or up forward while Aaron Bradtke proved a useful foil as his lieutenant in the ruck. Experienced defenders Neville Jetta and Jay Lockhart were steady as a rock all day, the latter receiving a bad knock in the painful area of the body that recently caused him to miss a couple of games. Tom Sparrow was the best of the midfielders, amassing 24 disposals and 5 tackles. As usual, James Munro was important with several pressure acts including eight tackles.

The Demons return to Casey Fields on Sunday to play their game against the Sydney Swans which was postponed from a fortnight ago.

How many listed players did Geelong have?

Good morning Bob,

As you can see from my article posted above, Geelong and Melbourne both had ten of their listed players in their respective VFL teams on Saturday. Below are the players and number of games played in the AFL:-

Casey Demons

Toby Bedford (2)

Jake Bowey (0)

Aaron Bradtke (0)

Mitch Brown (76)

Majak Daw (54)

Neville Jetta (158)

Jay Lockhart (22)

Fraser Rosman (0)

Deakyn Smith (0)

Tom Sparrow (12)

Geelong VFL

Oscar Brownless (0)

Charlie Constable (12)

Sam De Koning (1) 

Darcy Fort (8)

Max Holmes (1)

Ben Jarvis (1) 

Josh Jenkins (149)

Stefan Okunbor (0)

Rhys Stanley (144)

Nick Stevens (0)

As you can see, both had roughly the same total number of AFL games behind them. Of course, Casey were at a little disadvantage because they lost Jake Bowey early in the piece.

BTW, Barry (formerly of Beach Road, Sandringham) says hello from the Gold Coast.

Posted by Adam Tomlinson this morning. Bowey sans moonboot lifting heavy weights. Is this a photo from today? Would he be lifting such heavy weights after a serious ankle injury. Is this an old picture posted in solidarity for and by a fellow injured player?

Many thanks KC.  Is Barry up on the GC permanently now? His reports from Sandy were second to none, you excepted of course. 

Yes Bob. He’s very much entrenched up on the Coast and expected to make a comeback to reporting on Demonland when Casey comes up here later in the year to play Gold Coast.

I see on the MFC website they have video of all the VFL goals and what sounds like a full-on commentary of the entire match.  Did anyone find out if that was being streamed? Who made it? If not streamed, why not? What equipment is missing to stream it? etc?

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
