This is interesting (aside from what dimwit posters  may say) . Is this a new position and an example of the "soft" cap being expanded or a replacement of someone who has left?

Replacement of someone who has left - a bigger and better job in the USA apparently....

I know Jack McLean was the Strength and conditioning Coach at the Demons. Before that he was strength and conditioning coach for the VFA side. It would appear Jack is moving onto other areas. Been at the Demons I think a very short time. In fact I don't think he ever saw a game out at the Club. . Lives in Highett.

    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.
