He evoked memories of Rob Flower for me. His build, and his ball handling.

Big call, because I too remember how he drew me to the fence in the outer.

GREY INTO WHITE by KC from Casey

The rains came as predicted to Casey Fields on Sunday along with a fair lashing of wind that made for the type of game that you expect in such inhospitable conditions - a grim, dour festival of scrappy football made for strong-bodied sides such as the undefeated competition leaders. And so it came to pass that the Casey Demons were able to trample over Carlton’s VFL side in the final half of their Round 21 match up to maintain their undefeated record for 2022.

The victory under grey skies was a perfect 100 VFL game milestone outcome for skipper Mitch White Mitch who has been a stalwart for the club since making his debut for Casey in 2015. White amassed 21 kicks and 8 handballs and laid 8 tackles to share best on ground honours with James Harmes (35 disposals) on a day that was made for players of their ilk. Another veteran, James Munro was also in his element in the tough early going along with ruckman Jake Spencer, the big man having been seconded into duty after playing suburban football for most of this year. 

Fittingly, the opening goal of the game was scored by yet another veteran in Mitch Brown very early in the opening stanza with the Blues responding with theirs late in the term. Casey threatened in the first half of the second quarter with goals to Blake Howes and Joel Smith but the more accurate Carlton was not to be denied and staged a three goal comeback to lead by a point at half time. 

The home team was missing its main running players in Bedford and Chandler and their inaccuracy was hurting them. Scoring was tough but a Sam Weideman shot for goal looked good before it was declared to be touched. Weideman was in the thick of things all day and his efforts, though unrewarded in terms of goals, was noticeable on the day. Casey inched past the Blues with point after point before the hardworking Bailey Laurie broke the goal scoring deadlock inside time on. He was rewarded for a perfect tackle when he slotted through a difficult set shot that gave his team a 9 point lead at the final break. 

The Blues had been totally smothered in the wet during the third quarter scoring only a single point but they refused to go away with a goal four minutes into the final term raising some flutters in the Demon camp as the minutes ticked by with neither side able to trouble the scorers. In the end, it was a couple of youngsters in Roan Steele and Jake Bowey who came to the fore with two more goals and Casey emerged from the grayness of a cold, wet day with a 16 point victory and its 17th on the trot, a fitting outcome for the skipper’s 100th game.

The game was Casey’s last home and away match for the season as they travel to Brisbane next week for thir final round game against second placed Lions Reserves at Moreton Bay Central Sports Complex on Saturday morning.

Weid’s first half was really ordinary, so many times caught out of position. His second half at chf, hitting up at the ball and using his frame to protect the ball was very good.

Buntine was probably best on at half time then faded out. Bowey maybe the best 4 quarter player.

Howes and Laurie both showed they are a class above, they just need to work on their deficiencies and physically develop 

Surprised you didn't mention White here DS.  Thought he had the most impact and probably BOG on the day.

Decent second half from the Weid given the conditions and his size but his decision making, finish by foot and at goal is still a fair way off replacing anyone at AFL level IMV.

Harmes involved in plenty but (lacking power/drive away from contest ....legs/fitness?) is trying to fend off way too often and ended up getting caught a fair bit.

Very difficult conditions for everyone though.

Bell didn't play too bad on a few occasions and even big Spencil got involved a few times in the second half!

Howes probably the cleanest all day and showing some very good signs.

Dunstan's last quarter was very good.  Another quarter or two like that and i'd say he would've been a half chance to come in this week.

17 on the trot....crazy good effort from the boys.

His skills just don’t suit our game style. He isn’t a bad footy player, he just isn’t a pack busting, contested marking forward that we need/want him to be. 

He would be serviceable at a number of clubs that have faster ball movement. 

Did you actually watch the game? He crashed multiple packs and took multiple contested marks from doing so.

JVR was horrible.

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
