How come Casey get only 2 players in the VFL team of the year, one of whom (Mitch White) is on the bench? No Chandler or JVR? Moniz-Wakefield?

Worse still, No Barometer Munro! And no Mitch Brown?? Staggering really!

Give Southport Sharks some credit.

In the Club foyer they have a big tank with sharks in it swimming around.

Clearly have too much disposable cash.

Cappers old club too I think.

 

Really?

Yep. Iv'e seen it.  Went to a game there several years ago. Fantatsic complex, lovely playing surface.  Pity no-one much else cares about AFL in Brissie depsite what you here.

Try being a 14 year old looking for a team to play with? few if any grounds of AFL shape so no dice. Few if any schools play it as a sport.

Most are ex Victorians who follow or have a vic connection.

Go Sharkies.

I have to check that out. There used to be a sports bar in Brisbane that had tanks with little sharks in them. Could watch them all day.

We have plenty of grounds in my part of Brisbane (northside) and junior teams are easy to find. My daughter played. Kids school was part of a school comp, although the standard was pretty low. We went all over the city to games so saw some good infrastructure. I couldn't comment on the Gold Coast though.

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 that was before the turn of the century when they dominated the competition. In fact, they won four out of five VFA premierships from 1995 to 1999. The dominance of that last flag season has been replicated this year in a competition that’s still nominally Victorian but three of its top four placings have been occupied by Queensland clubs. The Demons have made it through to the grand final against interstaters, Sydney and Brisbane (pity their big brothers in the AFL couldn’t do likewise).

It’s fitting that the Demons are taking on the Sharks because, for most of the season, they were the team snapping at the heels of an outstanding Casey combination that reigned supreme and only lost one game of VFL football and that was in the ultimate home and away round.

The game will be something of a beauty vs beast competition because it is expected on the Casey side, there there will be a number of AFL listed players including Toby Bedford, Kade Chandler, Luke Dunstan, Jake Melksham, Adam Tomlinson and Sam Weideman and a few more, some potential high end talent of the future like Jacob Van Rooyen, Blake Howes, Bailey Laurie, Andy Moniz-Wakefield, Daniel Turner and Taj Woewodin, experienced hard bodied VFL types like Jimmy Munro and skipper Mitch White (the latter were both there when the team lost grand finals in 2016 and 2018), GWS recruit Matt Buntine and some young VFL stars of the future.

The Demons will be facing a team full of hardened second tier players who previously tried out with AFL clubs and have assembled at Southport where they have melded into a typical unrelenting type of VFL club that is always hard to beat. They have a couple of well-known opponents in the ever-reliable Jay Lockhart who was on Melbourne’s list from 2018 to 2021 and former Sydney listed speedster Zac Foot who spent last year with Casey. Two Sharks in Jacob Dawson and Boyd Woodcock were equal runners up in this year’s JJ Liston Trophy so they have plenty of talent in their team.

The Sharks’ coach Steve Daniel looks a hardnosed type himself. He believes it will be like a fairy tale if his team wins and I have to agree with him. When the teams met earlier this year, Casey got the jump on Southport at Casey Fields. Ikon Park will be a much kinder and more hospitable venue for the Sharks but I think the Demons will emerge premiers.

Casey Demons by 20 points.

LAST TIME THEY MET

Casey Demons 13.11.89 defeated Southport Sharks 8.11.59 at Casey Fields, Round 7, 2022

The Demons blitzed their opponents to the tune of 8.5.53 to 2.4.16 in the opening quarter with Mitch Brown unstoppable at full forward. Casey won everywhere except in the ruck but its midfielders made up for it by sharking numerous opposition hit outs.

Adrenaline. I used to love the place, until I watched the 2000 GF there. Was never the same.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    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

    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
