MFC Top Up Players for 2022.


Recommended Posts

With news that David Zaharakis will most likely be one of our top up players for 2022 I wonder who else we'll nominate before next Mondays deadline.

I'll take a little stab and say these 3 are most likely our certainties.

David Zaharakis 

Matt Buntine (Was training today in the ANB vision)

James Munro

What is the Heads up on him Dazzle??

I don't know too much about except that he has genuine X factor and can run all day. 

With a bit of exposure to semi professional level he could hopefully follow in the footsteps od Bayley Fritsch. 

Jack Lonie and former Giant Sam Reid have been added to Casey's list.

I think we need a back-up ruck or two.

I assume the rest of the back-up players will come from Casey, if there are no more outsider additions?

I think that is a safe assumption. I think that is really good for the alliance. The Casey boys probably aren’t happy about the 3 or 4 ring ins but when that covi-tunity strikes White or a couple others will get a game in the big show.

I like Jack Lonie as a top up player. A known goal kicker who was almost picked up by another side (can’t recall which one) in the off season.

Apart from those routinely playing for Casey like Buntine and maybe Conca the guys playing local footy will probably need time at Casey to get acquainted with the game plan and get their fitness up.

So it’s certainly smart to list a number of former AFL players but I’d hope the first line of reinforcements comes from actual Casey players. This could be a chance to convince good local talent who have been reluctant to join the VFL to give Casey a chance as well. 

If we’re down to 28 fit players which is when these guys become eligible either us or us and the entire AFL will be pretty screwed anyway.

So how does it work from a list perspective? Do they now train with us full time and play at Casey every week? Or train and play at Casey until called up for top ups?

they go about their normal life as is and if it gets dire then they'll link up

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
