Recommended Posts

There is no official market yet for this week’s game between Casey Demons and UWS Giants - at this stage the time venue have yet to be announced and the odds of the game taking place are not very good.

Bad news for the players lining up for promotion to the AFL.

The following teams have a bye

Aspley, Box Hill Hawks, Gold Coast Suns, Port Melbourne, Werribee, Williamstown

A game against Port or Willy would be nice

We do not play Port all year and are scheduled to play Willy in the second last round.

MFC/Casey needs to make it happen.

One game in 6 weeks is not good enough

How can the MFC/Casey make it happen, they could request it but there is a big chance it would just fall on deaf ears. The revamped VFL is just a complete joke.

In the grand scheme of things, it would now seem to have been a very bizarre year to create this wider competition.

I have been saving this for nearly 9 months now. Who ever thought it was a good idea to start an interstate competition in the year of Covid certainly does belong it the rocket scientist club.

The VFL comp is hopelessly compromised from a ladder perspective. Just make it Vic only for the rest of the season and let's move on

Would you please stop with sane ideas DJ. Talk like that will never get you a job at AFL!

Who or what are the UWS Giants? More specifically, does the name mean it's a merger between the University of Western Sydney and the GWS Giants? Or is UWS a sponsor of the Giants' seconds team? If the latter, have we ever had a name like that before (ie, a "insert sponsor's name" Magpies, or equivalent)?

I believe that this game will take place on Saturday night at Casey Fields. 

I hope you are correct Jack, because this these fixtures are not only compromising Casey, but also the Melbourne Demons.

Would surprise me if all the Giants VFL players were here in the bubble. They have jobs outside football.

Perhaps they will be allowed top up players

One of the Casey boys, George Grey played as a top up player for the GWS reserves side last weekend.

Who is on top of the ladder via vfl flashscore Bulldogs 1st followed by Southport, Casey then Box Hill . SCOREPRO 1st Bulldogs followed BH Hawks, Southport then Casey . 2021 Vfl mens Casey 1st Casey fpllowed by Bulldogs, Southport then Willamstown.

At end end of the year being 2-3 games down is that going to cost us top spot? (assuming we are undefeated). Perhaps at the end of the season the VFL staff are waiting for another covid lockdown. The reserves comp. is a joke. Casey didn't need a bye last week , they could have played another team with a bye. Perhaps that doesn't make sense to the Vfl. Senior teams need to  give there listed players a run and the players need run to prove they are worthy of senior selection sometime soon.

The lights are fine. Night games have been played at Casey Fields for at least ten years.

I hope some Demonlanders can make it down to report on the game (I’m working).

This team may well have beaten our senior team in the Neeld years. (I'm not sure whether that says more about this team or the past).

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    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
