Yeah, in first half Gus stood out for all the wrong reasons.   He had a horrible passage of play early in the 2nd quarter where he missed Bowie by a meter or two by hand, fumbled the ball when it came back to him then kicked it out on the full, all under minimal pressure.  Thankfully he turned it around bigtime after halftime.  I think he plays his best footy across halfback too.

It is noticeable, though, that Gus is human and can make odd mistakes from time to time; however, he does amend these errors in quick time and within this process, also creates (as necessary) improved plays and significant controls over the positive progress of the ball in the Demons' favour. Mr Fixit!

Love how you’ve done this in guernsey order.

This^^ Don’t let Cameron settle. Rotate opponents through him

As a 'sub', Joel Smith could also be part of this rotational plan - athletic, taller, physically more powerful, just as fast. Cameron is going to be confused, shut down by multiple opponents, sore and desperate to the point of becoming disoriented and 'un-cool', and thus losing the plot. :-)

If I can count properly, that’s 27 players.  Some team-bonding /culture building going on?Great to see if that’s the reason.

Joel Smith got torched last time he played on Cameron.      

Yeah, I can see the reasoning to have Joel as sub to give us flexibility in covering multiple injury returns. That said, IMO he is not the next best option in any of them and I'm always nervous when he's in the starting 22.

Away game so they would want to bring the emergencies in case a late change is needed.

That was last time. Now, we can apply a multi-functional opposition on Cameron, overcoming his every innovation and hopeful success across the whole game. That is depth!

We tend to travel with a big group when we do interstate trips, and make it a team building building experience.

Could explain our impeccable interstate record lately.

Thommo to stay as insurance for May, Fritsch to come in for Chandler, I would give Brayshaw a crack in the forward line as a replacement for Kozzie but we will see tonight.

Some good analysis from Leigh Montagna on Brisbanes performances in the past 6 months or so:

 

Interesting analysis on how Collingwood play (next item after Brisbane).  I am certain that they will be real contenders this year. Can’t wait for the KB game in June

People are underestimating Port in analysing round 1. Port are contenders imo.   Have talent and youth on all lines mixed with experience.  Having said that Lions were smashed at the contest

It's funny how rivalries develop in the game. Apart from the traditional ones it's interesting to see new ones like dogs and lions to a lesser extent developing. I think it will be a great game. Sad Kozzie is out but hopefully with some other stars returning will balance it out. Can't wait for this one.

    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. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. 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.

    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.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
