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.

Suck it up or you won't be watching much sport on tv. 

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.

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

    POSTGAME: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    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.
