Joel Smith - rested??

I thought he must have Covid issues, close contact or something?

Was a little bit surprised to see Howes named as an emergency for Thursdays game. Be interested to see how he goes on Saturday and if he can really put his name up in the coming weeks.

Been quietly impressed with Laurie so far as a mid/half forward. Think he's got the ability to crack a debut sooner rather than later.

I've  watched both games & Laurie has done nothing much at all. He is a long, long way from a debut on that form. Are you sure you've got the right player ?

I really liked the look of him vs Sandy where he picked up 22 touches and kicked 2. Not much of an opponent that day I know. Didn't do much against the Bombers but it was a bit of an odd game with a depleted team and scratchy form from most players that day. What I liked most from what I saw was his vision and disposal, seems to make the right call quickly and disposes cleanly. 

I've liked him since his draft year so probably some bias coming in there and perhaps gone a bit early about his chances of getting a senior gig. A bit of projection here but give him half a season at VFL level and I have faith he will soon be putting his hand up for a senior gig. Unfortunately for him it's a tough team to crack into and one that Simon doesn't play around with too much.

On the morning of the game, things are fairly sunny and calm on this side of town but by later in the day, the wind could be howling at Point Gellibrand, Williamstown on the bay where the Seagulls play. The conditions  always makes it a tough assignment out there and thankfully it’s April and not mid-July when you can buy a hot pie in the canteen only to find it frozen by the time you get to your seat in the stand.

The home team were once a powerhouse in the old VFA competition and until recently always hard to beat but they’ve struggled early and appear to be well below Casey in class. I trust they won’t resort to the rough stuff as happened in one of their more recent clashes in 2018 which was a pretty spiteful affair. The Seagulls have won their last two encounters but this looks like a different team and I expect Casey with 15 AFL listers to prevail.

Willy’s CHF, Noah Gown is a grandson of former Demon Ray Biffin who was a tough character back in the 60s and 70s and wore the number 19. Gown might come up against the current holder of that numbered guernsey. Sadly, work duties will prevent me from being at the game but I hope to be able to report in during the evening.

Still never heard if the bloke who was involved in the Mitch Brown incident was cited

No.

Been described as a shirt front and not a hit.  But really....

Really keen to see how the Melbourne Demons AFL listed players perform this evening against Williamstown in VFL. Especially Ben Brown, Blake Howes and Bailey Laurie.

I reckon Blake Howes is a good chance of making his senior debut for the Melbourne Demons over the next 3 or 4 weeks.

    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

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
