Is the tyranny of distance keeping our track watchers away?

Training Gallery: January 21

Wow 

Reckon Turner has put in size and weight to his frame pre season  which is great news.

Also how much has RIV developed in size and bulk in 2 seasons ? A big lad developing before our eyes !! 

A big tick to our development programs of the last few years ! 

PS bet Bowser  has put on weight and size just can't see it yet!!

Disco Turner looks like he could play key position.

I bumped into Daniel Turner at our local gym during the off season and had a good chat to him about his stint so far in the AFL system and the September experience. 

I was also blown away by how incredibly fit he was. He'd already lost all his puppy fat and looked as lean as I had seen. He said he got a reality check with just how professional you have to be off field including your diet. Stark different compared to his 'tradie diet' as an apprentice plumber prior to being drafted.

He was doing his running program up here with Charlie Spargo who is an absolute pro when it comes to off field training standards. 

His older brother has recently signed at our footy club. Looking forward to getting some good updates off him.

I hope he gets a game next year.

Recruit him to Dland ala Drunkn.

It looks like the group has come back in extra good shape and Hibberd has fined down a little from last year.

Hibbo was his fittest since he joined us in 2017 last year and carried no extra weight at all and very good season by the end of year when the cards fell for him and not Hunty. 
Will still be handy this season to mind Martin snd Johanissen!!

Went back and had another look at toddy's Training photos.
What I should have said was he ( Daniel Turner) looks more muscly and fitter and as indicated by DD lost his puppy fat.But overall he looks a bigger unit ready for some serious footy. 
Love  the story how he has done extra work running etc. with Spargs. That's the great thing about our Club there is always a mate to help you go the extra mile.

also Joel  Smith looks by far the fittest he has been ever. The test will come when the real body work and match practice to see if his body can survive and give him a belated chance for a career in the defence in 2022. There are no vacancies now but it's amazing how they can in a full season esp. with Covid capers going on! He deserves a change of luck and this  Year is his last chance.

Another  who looks much fitter is Rosman with a full first preseason under his body. May be the key to his form also with this base giving him confidence. Might also be the fact that one Blake Howes  will be fighting like hell to challenge for a senior spot if one arises at any stage in our centreline.

Wonder how much weights work JVR Howes Taj Juddy AMW are doing at this stage. If much at all. 

These players are really along with Dunstan starting their career but so much excitement as we look for more  gems from the JT factory.

Bring on a full Casey season so we can give these future players a decent chance of adjusting to an AFL Club already on its way to potentially its greatest modern period of sustained success.

There was very little known of Turner when he was drafted late in last year’s mid-season draft. One unconfirmed report said that he started last year at 191cm but was closer to 194cm when selected in June. 

@dazzledavey36- could you please follow up his height and the all-important nickname “Disco”? Do they have discos in your neck of the woods?

I have a technical question. When I open the gallery in my Chrome browser, the tops and bottoms of the photos are "chopped off" so I basically see a lot of headless players. Any suggestions as to how to fix this gratefully received. (Note: Any answers need to be understood by someone with the technical knowledge equivalent of someone under ten years old...or over 60).

Also, that's a nasty swollen joint on Joel Smith's left hand ring finger. I wonder whether that's permanent damage or just some temporary swelling?

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
