Nice out of the box thinking. Even Cales brother Mitch is a discard and then premiership player. Anyway, if you were to think that Levi was the elixir for all your premiership contending ailments, at any time, you’d be deemed crazy. 
 

this thread is a great opportunity to whittle away some hours while your life is passing you by. And rather than take a pot shot, I’d rather the current incumbents than Levi. They know the system, they know their teammates and most importantly they probably won’t be playing unless there is an injury glut.

Just like an instagram influencer, this thread is brave and stunning. 🤩

What system is that exactly? The one where 'current incumbents' TMac and BBB can barely get on the park and when they do they produce stuff all? 

You've got the definition of crazy wrong. It's saddling up with the same plan and the same cattle thinking you're going to get a different result. 

You have to plan for injuries. You have to have depth. Or, as we found out, you get found out.

Casboult re-signed with GCS months ago. If you’re going to go to the effort of posting pictures of players you might want to first google their contract situation.

Anything to back this up. Last thing I can find online about Levi signing a new deal was for one year back in October 2022?

I wonder which club has benefited most from free agency. That is, how many draft picks (or equivalent points) have they saved by recruiting players they didn’t need to trade for? Richmond with Lynch must be up there and Sydney with Buddy

A ruckman is an absolute must. Would be straight up list management negligence to go in to next year with Max, Schache, Verrall and not a genuine back up ruck.

Key forward should be a must, but I’m wondering if they address it with train on players rather than making a move. Give me the 3 best delisted/state leaguers/overlooked kids and let them battle it out over summer.

The draft has always made sense for mids and runners apart from 1-2 cheap back ups if they fit just to fill the list turnover.

Lol that’s hilarious. Old mate HeartBeatsTrue can’t even get their information correct. Casboult is unsigned for 2024. Not only that he’s an unrestricted free agent. Doesn’t even affect my argument but you’ve got to chuckle at some of these mouthy posters who do nothing but take potshots from the sidelines. They can’t even get their basic facts straight.

Thanks for the link WWS, however do we know when it's dated as I couldn't find a date on the article. I note it says working on a deal, but no deal has been signed that I can find any sign of.

So he’s presently unsigned for 2024. Thanks. 

No-one’s immune from trade discussion this time of year. He’s not Charlie Curnow ffs.

You have quite the wit. You should consider stand up. 

any chance you could not overly dominate and make treads unreadable?

sure, make your point, however misguided. You don't have to play the victim and complain if people don't agree

Casboult will be 34 by round 1. A terrible option, we would not even consider

It’s called robust discussion and debate. If you’re too fragile to cope with opinions you disagree with use the ignore function. It’s there specifically for sensitive souls like yourself. 

Re Casboult, he’s in good physical condition and still playing decent footy at 34. Good enough for 40+ games for the Suns in 2022/23 and apparently good enough for another year on their talented list. So ahh yeah you’re wrong. 

Now toodle-oo 👋🏼
 

Okay Bali, it's time to pull your head in. Every time anyone disagrees with you you get into the snarky whiny 'ooh, well, aren't you a big boy' talk and it is both bringing down the tone of the forum and crowding the screen space.

About ten years ago Demonland slumped badly because a few people were teeing off at each other constantly and derailing whole threads with their petty snarks. Those of us who have been around would have no interest in seeing that tone creeping back in.

Like you, those people also mixed in valid points of discussion and had interesting things to say, but I can't remember what any of it was because it was drowned out by just this kind of childish thin-skinned snot-flicking.

You're bringing down the vibe.

I can't see it happening.

How could bloody Geelong afford this??!!

Are they paying players with cash in brown paper bags or buying them farms? 🤔

He would be the youngest on their list.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training.

Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
