Let’s just build and refine what we saw in last week’s scratch match.  The score doesn’t matter, but if we do these things, we’ll win anyway ……… and of course, no injuries.

Is either game going to feature on Casey Radio?

So missing as far as I can see are:

Viney, (inj) Fritsch, (inj)  Salem, (inj)  Tomlinson, ??  Rivers, (wonder why ?) Dunstan and J Smith of the "worthy"  to be selected otherwise I like the strength of the squad. 

anyone wish to add to my concerns ?

Rivers has been named in the back pocket. 

Dunstan is still recovering from a hamstring injury in one of our last intra-club match sims before the practice matches started. 

Tomlinson was playing for Casey last week and I assume he’ll play for them again today. 

Joel Smith also just resumed training in a limited capacity just before the match sims. Did he play for Casey last week against the Saints? If so he’ll likely play again this week. Otherwise I expect he’ll be a week or two away from returning via Casey.

No injuries and further refinement of our forward 50 approach.

Would like to see Nankervis cop a belt or 2. He's meted out plenty of punishment to Maxy over the journey so would like to see the ledger evened up a little. Any by legal means of course. I don't want any suspensions.

Who knows.

MFC website barely ever updates fans on the injury front.

This was discussed on another thread.  Fritsch's foot was stomped on by accident in training a few weeks back.  They're managing it conservatively and letting him heal (which is going well apparently).  It's not on the website because this is the kind of injury that teams will exploit / target Fritsch for

As i can't make it, and find the low camera angle at VFL grounds unwatchable understandably, the DL post match thread will suffice. Unless someone wants to rent a crane and live stream illegally 😂

I'm beginning to think Chris Scott might be onto something with the 18 min quarters and 26 rounds instead of 2 potato quality praccy match Sims.

One of the ugliest aspects of football is the players who deliberately injure others!  I alternate between disgust and fury, and sadness for our boys on this front

Glad it's not really seen in AFLW and hope it never is!

Yep....feel dirty shelling out for Kayo. Love of club I guess greater than contempt for the Murdoch clan.

Gee we are spoiled. Is it just me that can remember only one replay on the weekend in the good old days. And it was rarely our team in it.

Yes the old am radio had to suffice.

It’s only started to drop off in the last 5 to 10 years. 
Boys will be boys.

    PREGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    The Demons return to the MCG to take on the Saints in Round 11 on the back of two straight losses in a row. With Jake Lever out with concussion who comes in and who goes out?

    VOTES: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Last week Captain Max Gawn consolidated his lead over reigning champion Christian Petracca in the Demonland Player of the Year Award. Steven May, Alex Neal-Bullen & Jake Lever make up the Top 5. Your votes for the loss against the Blues. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak
