  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.


Casey Demons off season

Realistically, how much would it cost to setup an AFL reserves competition? Like how much more than the current setup?

Are you including SA and WA?

You probably need an extra 15 players on the "Reserve List". What is the incentive for these players. Do they ever train with the AFL listed players. At one stage Collingwood reserves were begging for players.

My take is that there simply isn't any money or desire to re-invigorate the competition.

Another point I used to make is that there is little incentive to grow crowd numbers. If they do that stadium providers (mainly local councils) need to pay for more facilities (toilets, grandstands etc)

JvR improved as day went on..some impressive "clunks".

Schache let himself down when, with less than a goal in it, with the ball in contest in their forward half, he thought he would protest the absence of a free kick to him, rather than compete for the ball. Richmond possession.

Casey players:

Burgoyne did similar to Schache early in game when he nonchalantly jogged along behind a ball that looked like it might go out. It didn't. Richmond waltz in, grab it and goal.

Goonan competed very well. As always, Munro in it all day. Mitch White was missed and is needed back in team. George Grey injured early, little impact but very clever goal late in game. Roan Steele competed quite well, marred by a sloppy return of ball to a Richmond player which resulted in a 50m penalty to tigers and a goal.

Team will improve on that performance.

I thought James Jordon was BOG, controlled most of the game with Munro, but we missed White and Luke Dunstan in the middle.

At 3QTime the coach said he didn't care what the scoreboard said - that was the truth. We gave up a 4 goal lead going with the wind. Schache was very good early. Varrell rucked manfully. Hibberd had a lot of the ball, but seems now behind Bowey and McVee. Disco Turner, as usual did some nice things. Kye Turner tried in a different role this week, a bit more forward - shows promise. Sestan quiet in that high half-forward role.

Van Rooyen always competes hard, but Schache showed how he (Schache) is a bit cleaner around goals.

I may have been in error in attributing the sloppy return and 50m penalty to Roan Steele. If so, apologies to young Roan.

Am I correct that Casey are playing a practice match against Coburg tomorrow evening at home? If so has anyone got any information on the squad?

I would like to see if Frisch and Viney are to get a run.

Finally some footage from Casey

 

 

Nothing worse than goal highlight packages that only show the set shot and ignore the actual intersting part of how the player recieved the set shot.  Was it a towering pack mark, a exquisite pass to a strong lead or a down the ground free?

Practice Match of 4 x 25 minute quarters today at Casey Fields at 6:45pm 

This cuts across my work so I can’t make it to the game but I will try to get the scores relayed to me and posted here. I will also post the teams if I can get hold of them.

What we really need to find is some local (or far away) Demons dedicated enough to the cause to turn up and report on the game.

Couldn't get through to MFC for some more details about this game. Found the Casey club contact and was told the match is against Coburg tonight. They couldn't tell me if Fritta was playing though 🙂

The unfurling of the flag will be at Casey Fields before the start of our VFL round 1 match versus the Dogs.

For lunatics like me (and many in the DA) it means going straight to Casey from the airport having arrived on Saturday morning from our AFL round two match vs Lions at the ‘Gabba on the Friday night.

Bugger having such a successful Club… so many unfurlings to squeeze in  😂

Yep, you need both in a highlights reel. I remember a few years ago AFL media would do the other way round and only show the mark before the set shot and not the kick.

Coburg have not been stellar in recent times

Hopefully it's not a massacre

It could be a massacre but, based on the selected side, not what you might have been expecting when you posted.

Looking at Casey’s ‘outs’, the selectors have taken out all MFC players from last week as well as seven of the top Casey regulars. Skipper Mitch White was also missing last week and is still out - as is Finn Emile-Brennan.

    THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS: 2023

    When the dust settled on 2023, the Melbourne Football Club coach Simon Goodwin lamented that the club knew it needed to score more to land a second premiership in the current era. He opined that an average of one more goal per game would have had his charges in football’s stratosphere.  Goodwin was right and, based on his team’s scoring opportunities, that extra goal (and more) was well within its grasp if only they had better converted their shots at goal. Take the side’s last six defeats
