A magnificent day weather wise for training...

A few snakes basking on the warm tracks perhaps

On a separate note one wonders how long it will be until some bright spark at the AFL (we can make money out of anything) comes up with a plan for charging fees to attend training. Going to "spring training" in baseball is big business.

 

I like the idea but I think you need to make it free to start with and make it an attraction and then bait and switch and start charging. Not sure how you do it at an open venue like Gosch’s.

Williams said they have fixed cameras and the drone at Casey.  Do they have the same at Gosh's

Yes, cameras are attached to the new poles that hold up a net at each end of the paddock, and on a couple of light towers.

The drone has not been used much this preseason but it is brought out occasionally.

There were 4/5 assistant hovering around the computer screens under the awnings on Wednesday. The same ones that collect the gps tracking mechanisms attached to the players.

Yes. Didn't see a drone on Wed, probably not up because of rain. But have seen vision from it in the past

Is it me, or has Woewodin bulked up significantly going off the instagram photos???

I noticed that as well, Dazzle. Given he's not overly quick, I wonder if this is wise. I'm no sports physio, though.

ANB also looking super fit with zero fat on him, like a greyhound

No, don't encourage this.

Why put me outside the fence. Already the price of finals tickets are leaving holes in my budget. A training ticket, why?

Elitist and their envy of each other. Why do you want this kind of world and the associated gaps amongst us? I am for equalising us, not dividing. I guess you like operating behind closed doors, so you feel closer to the inner circle, oh "you are the special one's".  

Help the growth of the middle class, don't use them to fund a lifestyle of those holding the assets.

Footy clubs are about community and not a company. 

If we need funding then get it from the asset hoaders, tax evaders, the traders and financier's, companies both public and private.

Stop living on the back of the workers.

Make footy and all forms of entertainment more accessible,  not less.

If not accessible, then the public funding of our sports and arts program becomes welfare for those who have plenty already.

It would be nice if the club could confirm next week’s training times and venues. 

With schools returning in the following week, the next week could be the final opportunity to get the kids to a preseason session and if they are taking place at Casey which involves special arrangements for most of us because of the distances involved, plenty of advance notice would be helpful.

I emailed the club today and they stated in their response that Wednesday was the only ‘open’ session next week. 
From this vague communication, I will assume that both Monday and Friday will be at Casey and are classified as ‘closed’ sessions. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I can confirm Monday & Friday are both at Casey.

A few of us were lucky to get in today, as the gates were shut.  After being shut out for about half an hour they were kind enough to let us in.  

No guarantees.

Thanks for that. 
 

Being over from Perth, if a drive out Casey results in no access I’ll be [censored] [censored] off!

Planning on going to Gosh's tomorrow morning, anyone know the best place to park with the tennis on? 

You should be able to get a park easily on Alexandra Ave near Punt Rd if you arrive by 9am. Then walk over Morell pedestrian Bridge to Goschs. That's where I parked on Wed of last week

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

    DEE ZEPHYR'S TRAINING REPORT Morning all. First time at Goschs for a while, there’s a scoreboard set up which I’ve never seen here before. Possible match sim? Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
