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?

    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

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.

    ESSENDONE & DUSTED by George on the Outer

    Essendon was the latest casualty as the Melbourne juggernaut rolled over the Bombers on its way to a 12th win for the 2021 Season.  It was a display of the difference in quality, coaching and system that defines those who will compete in finals and those that lie outside the top eight. Sadly, in these Covid times a mere 19,414 attended the game and the silence outside the ground before the match was eerie.  Normally, thronging crowds lining up at ticket gates and food carts were replaced by

    HOME AWAY FROM HOME by The Oracle

    The Demons return to the MCG on Saturday night (albeit for an away game) for the first time since mid-May when they beat the Blues. At the time, they were riding high, undefeated and celebrated by the football world. In the interim, they lost to two teams that occupy the bottom six, beaten two top four teams in front of empty or near empty stadiums and somehow fallen out of sight in the AFL bubble despite retaining top of the table status. And in a strange twist, the mantle of the league’s
