Any astute observers compare Seaston - when he gains AFL fitness - to any current or well known player’s role?  (Hopefully the comparison to Tapscott was either tongue in cheek or to his build and not his footy output.)

His set shot reminded me of Gunston's (not the Norman version). Smooth and straight

Disp looked good in play. Loved the smother he did on the half fwd boundary, showed excellent pressure.

Thick, muscley build, which a med fwd prob cannot sustain, perhaps needs to drop a few kg to build a tank.

A project player with potential (as much as I dislike that phrase)

I thought Jefferson was supposed to be an elite set shot kick? Any idea what happened?

Don't know, but his marking was elite today.

That really sucks for the boy. 
I think last night showed that McD really shouldn't be the back up ruck. Schache would have been great given his game today.

I don't think we should drop McD at all. His body work helps the other forwards and he's back up for defence. Just don't put him in the ruck.

Is this the time to (finally) unleash JVR? 

 

Sorry Tmac is now too slow, doesn't get much of the footy, time to change direction regarding CHF, he has been a great servant but time to on back up only.

Just watched the game. Impressed with Laurie deserves another crack at it maybe as a sub. Moniz-Wakefield is exciting and Jefferson's marking was exciting. van Rooyen has to debut this week great game by him.

Surely people weren’t expecting Schache to replace Max. he is not a rucks [censored]. average fwd. average back. not a ruck unless we are all out of options. has no mongrel

Where did you find the replay? I’ve been looking for it. Thanks!

Went along to the game yesterday and was quite an enjoyable one to watch.  Was happy for my concerns about their pre-season form to be put to bed.  Once the real stuff started and they were playing at home, it was back to regular viewing.

Given the games are now streamed and everyone can watch them I don't really feel the need to do one of my old break downs of all the Melbourne listed players, but just a couple of observations from the day.

1. I think Casey have found themselves a player in Miles Shepherd.  I know he debuted back in 2021, but this is the first time I've ever really noticed him and I thought both he along with Kye Turner and Hibberd gave Casey plenty of run and rebound off half back.

2. Bacon & Egg rolls were gone from the menu.  Well they were on the menu, but not available.  I hope this never happens again!

3. Based off today, I hold some hope for Josh Schache that he can still have value at AFL level.  Won't ever be a star, but he showed some real signs today.  Shame he got concussed.

4. They need to find a way to get Van Rooyen games at Senior level this year.  I really like what I saw from him today.  The way he launches himself at the football and an ability to just hang in the air when at the height of his jump.  Kid will be something!

Kye Turner was the big surprise for me.

Haven't not seen him play before he was impressive giving drive and dash off half back. He certainly drills the footy low and flat as well.

Keeps his form up and he could potentially debut this year.

CASEY’S NEW CAMPAIGN by KC from Casey

The Casey Demons unfurled their 2022 premiership flag early on Saturday afternoon at Casey Fields and commenced their campaign to earn the honour of back to back champions in 2023. They did so emphatically beating Footscray by 37 points in a contest they dominated throughout and, but for some wayward kicking for goal early in the piece, they could have determined the issue a lot earlier in the day than during the final term when the Dogs finally hit the wall.

The Demons were forced to make changes to the selected side with Jake Melksham and Adam Tomlinson in Brisbane and Daniel Turner also out. Trent Burgoyne, Max Gregory and Miles Shepherd came into the side to replace them leaving 14 AFL listed players in the side.

Last week against the same club, Casey was listless and struggled to score. This time, the game was played in near perfect conditions with just a slight breeze but the Demons were struggling to find the middle of the big sticks.

James Jordon and Luke Dunstan held sway in the clearance battles but the forwards were missing some easy shots at goal, as reflected in the quarter time score line. The trend continued early in the second term with a couple of behinds added to the score before Josh Schache, Jordon and Dunstan found the goals opening up a 26-point lead. A late Bulldog revival narrowed the margin back to 8 points at half time.

Michael Hibberd was in everything during the second term, Bailey Laurie was coming into his own and Josh Schache was putting his hand up for the likely vacancy caused by the injury to Max Gawn at Melbourne. There were some hints of future forward line strength through Jacob van Rooyen and newcomers Matt Jefferson and Oliver Sestan. Jefferson was winded and came off temporarily after taking a great mark.

The Doggies came hard early in the second half but Casey’s class came to the fore and a flurry of goals to the home team including two in quick succession to Sestan saw them off to a handy three quarter time lead which was stretched to 37 by the final siren. 

Sestan finished with three goals while Schache and Andy Moniz-Wakefield scored two each in their team’s impressive start to the season.

Hibberd was the star with 36 disposals and 10 marks. Other strong performers were Dunstan with 29 disposals, seven clearances and a goal, Laurie with 27 possessions and four tackles and Jordon (25 touches, 2 goals). 

Schache took a knock to the head and was off after the final break and if cleared of concussion, is a good chance for Melbourne against Sydney on Sunday. Note however, that Schache did not take the ruckwork in this game.

Jacob van Rooyen continues to promise to become a potential point of difference at AFL level with his enthusiasm, leap and versatility. He finished with 19 disposals, 11 marks, six hitouts and a goal and surely must get his chance soon?

James Munro was again a tower of strength amassing 16 tackles while Max Gregory made an excellent 20 touch debut in these ranks.

Next week, the Demons play host to the strong Sydney side with an early start at 11:00am on Sunday.

"Dunstan with 29 disposals, seven clearances and a goal"

We got beaten up around the clearances against Brisbane and Sydney will be similar. We need to find away to get this clearance bull into the team. I think Harmes makes way for him. Harmes only had 3 kicks for the game on Friday night.

Poor Oliver Sestan.  He has morphed into "Seston" and now "Seaton".  

We did have a player called Phil Seaton at one point.  No relation as far as I know.

I remember Phil Seaton going around. Half forward, ruck-rover. Not a bad player. Hot competition for spots. Healy, Kelly O'Donnell, Greg Hutchison and Tony Elshaug, were all young and helped make up the backbone of the side for the next five years. Took over No. 15 from Stan Alves.

A question for '@DeeSpencer' and '@dazzledavey36'....over the last few seasons I've made comment on the low possession stats across the board at Casey.

....but in this game they've jumped up significantly.

Is there a change in game plan? was the previous stats person visually challenged?

Is there a trend here?

Serious question here guys, despite the remark on the stats taker.

    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

    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
