Before I even scrolled down when I saw Clarry in this photo my mind flashed back to the RDB photo above and thought how close they were. 

It was always my favourite action photo of Barass when It was published after the 1961 Prelim Final we lost to  the Dogs that year.

Now I think  this is also a great photo of Clarry BUT no doubt we will and he deserves it be totally crazy over his one finger salute photo after his vital goal in the Bang Bang Bang trio just before 3/4 time in the GF.

A great photo still excites us just as much these days even with other avenues of memorabilia.

They look sharp but I guess they take the best looking plays in a package like that!

AMW seems to be getting a bit of it as well!

It's good to see they've mixed up the first choice team a bit - it's a great motivator for players outside the best 22 to knock the door down.  From memory pre-season last year many of the players said Jordon was a standout on the track and in match sim.

I've thought that in previous pics of Oliver as well, think I even posted I might be dislexic because 13 is looking alot like 31.

If JVR plays like he looks like he will Jason Taylor needs to be formally recognised as the best in the business.

Andy Moniz Wakefield looked pretty classy in that clip also.

Kozzy just seems like he'll go up another level. Couldn't believe my eyes how he easily ran down Hunt.

The Jacob Van Rooyen clunk has me excited. Not only that but his ability to leap over Joel Smith who probably has one of the highest vertical leap at the club. Is it me or did that contested mark remind me of Aaron Naughton? very impressive.

Did I see Jake Bowey playing forward in those clips? Interesting!

 

As for Clarrie, in recent years he has reminded me a great deal of the great RDB. They have the same relentlessness, energy, attack on the game and on the ball, the same ability to galvanise the team.

He made Hunt look like he had cement boots on, not an easy feat.....

Me too. At 194cm Van Rooyen will need a decent leap to be a key forward at AFL level (which is small for a key forward these days) and he looks to have excellent judgement/timing.

JAKE MELKSHAM Just when a few thought he was cooked he trained the house down and kicked some very classy goals and set up well as a forward.

 

So good to know how hard the boys are training. And your report is a delight to read! In particular, I’m so pleased to hear this about Melks.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again faced with a classic 8 point game against a traditional rival on King's Birthday at the MCG. A famous victory will see them reclaim a place in the Top 8 whereas a loss will be another blow for their finals credentials.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
